Description: Classic Mario World 3: The Finale Definitive Version

Story:
After defeating the Great Alliance in the last adventure Mario took a long vacation but when he returned he discovers that Bowser has taken over Rosalina's Observatory and kidnapped her.
Also there's a warp stars that works as a gateway to his space fortress hidden on his castle, so Mario decides to go on an adventure to save her.


Info:
This is a traditional Mario adventure with lots of places to explore, levels in this hack are usually longer than the ones from my previous hacks and even the original SMW but dont worry, this hack features the Multiple Midway points patch,multiple powerups and hidden goodies around to help the player out on their adventure.
Also new to this update are the Longjump and High jump moves seen on my latest hack and some gameplay improvements like the Upward Fireballs and Safe fall patches that can help the players in traversing the levels and lowering a bit in the dificulty department.

Warnings:
This hack was originally released in 2016 as part of the Classic Mario World Trilogy that I worked around the time and were my first 3 hacks submitted and acepted here, during these last years I have been updating and adding new improvements to these hacks so they can be more playable and fun, this is the last part of this.

Also some warning that I must give is that the star coins are not necessary to reach 120 exits neither to 100% the hack, they only unlock a small reward for those who take the time to find a part of them but you dont even need to find every single one for that.
Also you wont be able to reach 93 bonus stars which was their total for the original version since in this new version the Mushroom Castle and Toad's Bonus house dont have star coins anymore, so the new cap now is 91.
Only collect them if you wish or if you like the completionism aspect of the game ;)

You can find the new trailer for this update here:

This hack includes:

- Brazilian Portuguese Translation

- Improved English Translation(dont expect it to be perfect tho, English is still not my first language so I might commit some mistakes but its a major improvement over the original grammar I guess)
Aviso pra versão Brasileira: A Tradução não possui acentos devido as limitações do SMW.

- 90+ new long levels (2 of them are new levels that replaces 2 old levels from the original release)
- 120 exits
- Some Custom graphics
- Custom Music
- ASM
- Patches

Check the Readme file for more info on this update.

A huge thanks for N450, Anorakun and Fire Fast for helping me with their massive testing for this new version.
And also Erpster2 and the rest of the Brazilian Mario hacks comunity on Discord for helping me out with sugestions and feedback
Thanks!

The only praise I can give is the music and the tanooki power up. That is all. The level design, enemy placements, all that was just boring, or frustrating for the sake of being frustrating. The custom bosses were horrid and the vehicle segments were lame. And it's really sad this one sucked because I was really looking forward to this as I enjoyed Classic Mario World 1 and 2. Better luck next time I guess.
its just your lack of skill man, I saw the stream and you just can't time your jumps right. I'm not tryna be mean here but don't blame the deaths that are very clearly your fault, on this poor hack creator who literally just wants to make a fun hack for the people who like his/her content. If the level design is lame then so what. You had thrown a whole temper tantrum over a small little sequence of deaths that were entirely your fault. The level design and placement of enemies is what makes the hack hard. It would be a bummer if Bandicoot made a hack and there were like 3 enemies scattered far apart. If the custom bosses and vehicle segments sucked so bad that's not bandicoots fault, making a game is hard, you have to think of good level design ideas and then try to find out if you can import it in the game. bandicoot had to think of a boss battle that's unique from the koopalings or the rhinos. they cant just put that idea in the game, they have to carefully think how they can put that idea into the game with the little ability they have. Now you being rude like this is very very disrespectful. Bandicoot spent too much time on this hack for some random guy to come in and make him feel like trash. I personally think this a great hack for newcomers on Mario rom hacks.

I love the game, the level design isn't amazing but its very traditional and cool seeming. I like the long jump and high jump you've added (ive only played this one of the series) and i like the new powerups too. I think this hack is really really good and a good choice if you want a traditional and retro type mario game, with a sort of modern day mario feel. Very good and i recommend to anyone wanting a choconilla mario game.

Cut Bandicoot some slack, he took an awful load of time and effort to make this Hack to the upmost perfection so the least you can do is show him some high level of respect and be grateful that you got to play the whole Hack through and that Bandicoot made the Hack for you and everyone else to play in the first place, he doesn’t do this sort of thing for himself you know, he does it because he knows how very much other people who have played his SMW Hacks appreciate the hard work he puts into them and that they want him to continue with the success. Also I saw Bandicoots video of your stream as well and what very harsh and horrific things you were saying about him and his SMW Hack and I will definitely be the one to say this to you right now, I really really hated the nasty things that you were saying in your stream about Bandicoot and his SMW Hack, Classic Mario World 3 The Finale, it was incredibly upsetting and highly disrespectful, not only towards Bandicoot who put so very much hard work and effort into making this SMW Hack but towards other people that play a lot of his SMW Hacks and really appreciate and love his work. Seriously you should be ashamed of yourself you are absolutely straight up wrong and out of order for saying the hurtful things you said in your stream about Bandicoot and his SMW Hack. #ab{>:}

Bro I watched your stream and honestly the hack isn't the problem lol, don't blame your lack of skill on the hack.

This series tested my patience several times, but I truly enjoyed exploring through the worlds and levels presented in each game.

I feel you really hit your stride with CMW3 though, the graphics are nice, levels are well presented and provide a good challenge right throughout. Secrets are well hidden and I don't feel as though the game is holding my hand to find secret exits and Yoshi coins (I only missed 5 of the power stars, something I intend to correct. I was especially impressed by 9-3, without spoiling anything for new players the gimmick used in this level was clever, frustrating and well used. I still have the Special Level and the bonus levels to adventure through before I call it a day, but this game is right up there with some of my favourite rom hacks on this site, so big kudos to you!!

Edit: In retrospect (and this applies to all your hacks), 1-UP mushrooms lose their meaning if you're handing them out like candy. This is probably something you should address, I had 99 lives before I left world 3-1. That for me takes the fun out of a game. Maybe you should look into implementing the HP system, and dialing back the amount of extra lives you seem to cram into a level.

Amazing Job!

I really don’t care if other people think this Hack is horrendous especially because the last comment was incredibly harsh which I really didn’t like the look of, I love this Hack so very much including the 1st and 2nd Classic Mario World. I still have the slightly older version of Classic Mario World 3 because that one had a certain feel to it kinda like this updated new version Classic Mario World 3 Definitive Version. I have two versions of Classic Mario World 3, Classic Mario World 3 and Classic Mario World 3 Definitive Version, their both good SMW Rom Hacks along with your other SMW Rom Hacks that I have played and have completed several times. No matter what other people think about your SMW Rom Hacks I think their all outstanding regardless. By far the best ones I have ever played. The music choices for your SMW Rom Hacks were really amazing also. Keep up the amazing work Bandicoot really hope your working on bringing out another amazing SMW Rom Hack in the future. #tb{:]}#tb{^V^}#tb{:)}#tb{:j}#tb{:D}#ab{:D}#tb{:DD}#ab{:LOL:}#ab{:)}

DankClam - Thanks for the partially constructive feedback, and even if you didnt liked the game I respect your opinion on it#smw{:TUP:}

Especially since as a creator I know that it is NOT a perfect work and might not be for everyone(especially since I decided to take some diferent aproaches with this one) fortunaly I have been able to take people's feedback to make better hacks in my later projects(or at least I tried).

By the way... just so you know: I WAS WATCHING the stream where you were playing this very hack just a few hours ago, and while I personally dont care if you didnt liked the hack I decided to watch a bit of it anyways because I like to see people playing my work and hear constructive criticism and feedback, unfortunaly that was not the quality content I was looking for since most of it was just hate speech behaviour you were having in your dialogue such as this and especially the ofensive coments towards me.
Not liking my work I can understand and you have every right to exercize your opinion and give constructive feedback on things that could be improved if you wish, however saying things like
"the person who made this should die"
"the world would be a better place without the guy who made this on the streets"
arent tolerable comments you should be saying on a live stream of all things, in fact hate speach and heavy coments like that I dont tolerate against me or anyone else ever! live stream or not.

But dont worry, I wont stoop to your level and do the same to you here, especially since youre probably were just venting your frustrations with the dificulty and sometimes absurd challenges of the game, I just want to say I hope you can learn to properly direct your rage, just remember that pretty much every hack that is found on this site is made by someone that have SMW-Hacking as their hobbie, that they use hours from their free time, they dont get one cent out of this and that their work are hard nonetheless, be their hack good or not they work hard to make them, and they do it so people can have fun with them and so themselves can have fun too, you are free to have any opinion youd like on the hacks here, but please at least be a decent person and learn to respect the creators that put the effort to make something that you can play, you rage was really misdirected in that stream.

Despite all that, I wish the best for you.

quickdraw86 From older version: Classic Mario World 3: The Finale Link
Though I'm a fan of all of Bandicoot's hacks, I'd say I like this one best. This is definitely the easiest of the 3 Classic Mario World's, and the most polished as well. I enjoyed the level design, music choices, and palette. Fantastic, 5/5.

erpster2 From older version: Classic Mario World 3: The Finale Link
very good hack, bandicoot.

can you add the ability for fire mario to shoot upward fireballs and allowing "quick saves" by pressing Start on the overworld map in CMW3 like you did with your other hacks? those would be nice additions to CMW3
drl From older version: Classic Mario World 3: The Finale Link
There is a bug with peach's castle (MUSHROOM CASTLE).

If you take all yoshi's coins in peach's castle without talking to peach and exit the level. After if you come in again and you talk to peach, the yoshi's coins will be there again.

If you collect twice yoshi's coins in peach's castle, later in the game, there will be one or some levels where you will not be able to collect yoshi's coins because they will be already collected.
edwinmusic From older version: Classic Mario World 3: The Finale Link
Awesome Hack!congratulations!
NatsuFireball From older version: Classic Mario World 3: The Finale Link
This final hack of the trilogy is a masterpiece, you put an incredible lot of work in it ! Very great level design and custom bosses, and so is the overworld.

The idea of saving Dragon Coins in SRAM and making them useful for getting some bonus levels is great. Indeed, very few SMW hack does take these Dragon Coins into account which make their lookup far less interesting.

The 120 exits and 96 star coins (I suppose there are 96 ?) are doable without using any savestate, the star in Toad houses here comes in a great help, as some levels are very hard.

The extra levels are very interesting =], however I dunno if I am the only one but the 20th extra level (Chain Chomp Panic) is bland, you get a forced beginning midway and a lot of power ups but it is all, the level doesn't stretch to the right, you are forced to die. Maybe an oversight ?

The readme present in the game folder is very interesting and gives a lot of useful informations about the game !

10/10 (5 stars) Thank you very much for this, you did an awesome job =]
supermario23 From older version: Classic Mario World 3: The Finale Link
Great hacK! The maps and levels are solid and well made. 5 stars! I reccommend this to anyone who wants a fresh, classic mario experience.
MasterT1988 From older version: Classic Mario World 3: The Finale Link
I found a bug in Forest Deeps. When you get the first checkpoint, right at the beginning of the level and die, you spawn in a black room without ground and immediately die.

This hack looks amazing aesthetically and some neat level design, the problem is that it's buggy as hell.

I played a little and yet i think that this hack is awesome.
 Erik From older version: Classic Mario World 3: The Finale Link
Man the levels on this are giant, almost felt like I played through 200 exits instead lol
Still, altough I don't like some stuff on this (the levels with invisible platforms come to mind), it was a decent experience. Reccommended for anyone looking through a typical Mario gameplay experience.
CycloneGU From older version: Classic Mario World 3: The Finale Link
I have so far played two levels, and my comments will be similar to what I said for the second iteration of this.

The level design is great. I find myself looking around for fun using the "swim anywhere" cheat (though it's not advised to use it for play, see ahead). Such peeking lets me see that you've put multiple levels on single maps; I found, behind a portion of 1-1, a level I have not yet seen in the game. I see you still have a habit of leaving unfinished floors after the goal (I noticed this in 1-1, but 1-2 does not have this problem; again, the swimming cheat lets you get high enough to bypass tha gate). The music, while either copied or remixes of other music, is good.

My problem, like with #2, is that the levels are WAY TOO LONG. I mapped 1-1 and am mapping 1-2 as I speak, and I found 1-1 alone to be 6,928 pixels wide. And we get 550 seconds, 50 more than what you'd have to clear a level in Super Mario Maker. But the level is much longer. 1-2 also has length issues; while the first map is only 2,528 pixels (I included some of the underground after the pipe but stopped when I found a level segment after the wall using the swim cheat), the second is already at about 2,500 and I still have half the map (plus a small bonus room) to go. I love the levels, but they are too long for a standard game; they should be shorter in general. Look at the original game; the entirety of 1-2 was remade in Super Mario Maker, while your levels are WAY in excess of that map limit, possibly over even both the main map and submap (I should test this). Supporting the length argument is the fact that I acquired everything in 1-2 and still had the timer alarm sounding; this is a sign that the game is not a casual play, but more of a speedrunner's effort, and minimizes exploration, thus making savestates handy (since I like to explore) even though the game so far could be played without them.

That is my one qualm about what looks like a nice and clean hack thus far, so hopefully I don't find ways to soft-lock myself like I did in a couple of stages of #2 (the swim cheat is handy for this). The best test will be when I have the cape and can fly around, and I'll be poking around to see what I can get stuck in.

EDIT: OK, I have noticed that you have a tendency to hide power-ups in hidden blocks. This is something I am not a fan of; you don't need hidden items in every level, especially when there isn't a lot of spare time in some of the levels. 1-Ups, sure (sparingly, as places can be found where they flow freely anyway), but having two hidden power-ups in some levels is just a bit much. You also get downvotes for your usage of P Switches on DragonFruit Woods; having a grey P at the beginning needed for a 3-Up Moon at the end, then having to babysit a blue one back to the beginning, is nothing more than an exercise in time wasting; not because the level itself is hard, but because I was using Yoshi while doing it and I had to constantly spit the item out before swallowing, and I often found myself either hitting it by accident or having Yoshi get hit and dropping into the drink with the P. I only claimed the grey one and didn't bother going back. Why do stupid things like this? We don't like those kinds of things when lives are already plentiful (I have 24 and am using save states to save between sessions, but even if it were something to unlock a pipe, I note again it's an 8,000 pixel level and it is just uncool to expect peopl to wste time with this even with the treetop route back to the beginning). Switch the P Switches around and maybe it's worthwhile. I'd rather not see it the way it is.
kvbriggs From older version: Classic Mario World 3: The Finale Link
I'm loving this hack so far (almost done). It's totally playable without savestates, as I'm playing on the SNES using Super Everdrive, but there are some bugs. I don't know if it's just a Super EverDrive thing or if it's universal though.

First, at the Mario Start screen right after you enter each stage there is a huge graphics glitch every time, no matter what. I see Mario's head everywhere and parts of random sprites. Once the stages start everything is fine, so this glitch does not affect gameplay.

Second, in the stage, Bridge Biters, if you jump on a flying spiny with flying blue Yoshi, the game crashes. If blue Yoshi does not have wings and jumps on a flying spiny the game does not crash; the glitch only happens when blue Yoshi has a shell in his mouth.

niko From older version: Classic Mario World 3: The Finale Link
Ok... i see you try something with this...

But, there is ONE big problem. You try to make big levels, and thats ok, but you often make a very repetitive design. Some levels have great ideas, some levels are great. No level is really bad, but sometimes boring. The music is great, the graphic are great at the most part too.

Please, make shorter levels, but more interessting, thats better than that what you make here.

Anyways, this hack makes fun, a lot of fun!

I give you a 4/5 for this. Keep up the good work.

norajo From older version: Classic Mario World 3: The Finale Link
When you take a hit on the top of screen in Castle of Koopa, the game will crash.
Also, in other levels, take a hit on the top, when you have flower or leaf, you'll get a small Mario. Not Super Mario.

Screenshot 28 looks very cut off, but beyond that this hack looks great!
Alex No From older version: Classic Mario World 3: The Finale Link
This hack wont work on SNES. Mario has Glitches.
(Press Ctrl, Shift and S to open the RAT's window in Lunar Magic)

Check the Mario GFX patch, it has conflict with another patch. Because Mario looks crazy in BSNES and SNES Hardware.
Chillah From older version: Classic Mario World 3: The Finale Link
This hack is simply awesome. Some weird things are: Torpedo Teds are being launched in the air, some palettes are a little off, etc. Also, recommendation: Use the better platforms patch; it allows sprites to actually use other sprites as solid objects, like bounce off springboards, stand on wooden platforms, etc. I'll write more once I get a little deeper in to the hack. Also, you BOUGHT A COPYRIGHT FOR THIS?!
Revali From older version: Classic Mario World 3: The Finale Link
Great! Beautiful game. It was a great experience throughout!
Highlighting the very hefty gimmicks, I loved all the progress of the game.
Congratulations for the excellent quality of work. I am now going to play the previous ones, which until then did not know, but now will matter to play.
sevenlavide From older version: Classic Mario World 3: The Finale Link
Good games deserve to be played again.
