Description: Of Jumps and Platforms (or OJaP, in short) is a SMW hack of hard-very hard difficulty, heavily focused on platforming. It contains a total of 7 exits, carefuly crafted and balanced to offer a difficulty progression through them. Inspired by hacks like slurdgery, Nachos and Fried Oreos and mice, Of Jumps and Platforms offers some hard, challenging platforming action through each one of the levels, each one containing an asm-focused gimmick.
Story: Bowser has prepared a special obstacle course for Mario that ends up in his castle. Will he be able to survive it?

Update:

No gameplay changes.

-Disabled start+select reset feature due to glitchy behavior.
-Darkened the background on the second section of Night of the Spike so the ON/OFF blocks can be seen more clearly.

Well, this was a fun little experience. It's a neat hack for those who find Kaizo too difficult or for those who are just beginning to learn and understand Kaizo hacks. It's much more difficult than the average "Hard" hack though, and if precise/accurate jumping isn't your thing, you might struggle in this hack.

Rotating platforms, Ball 'n' Chains, and other similar objects move extremely quickly, and jumping at the wrong time can easily result in your death. Along with that, some levels have Fishin' Boos which also impede your ability to jump accurately.

That said, this hack isn't a Kaizo hack due to powerups being available in the beginning of each section and the lack of many Kaizo elements such as shell-jumping and the like; and because of the Mushrooms that are available at the beginning of each section, you're allowed to make one blunder, unlike in most Kaizo hacks in which there is a consistent lack of powerups unless it's needed to break a barrier of Turn Blocks further in the level for instance.

Zen Platforming and Of Jumps and Platforms were my favorite levels. Of Jumps and Platforms, being the final and longest level in the hack, definitely kept me engaged and attentive as each section presented me with a unique gimmick.

Overall, I'd recommend this hack for those looking for a short but difficult game that does not cross the borders between Standard and Kaizo.

Next up on my list of hacks to play is Darolac's Scary Bosses and Nice Sprites.

#lm{pal}#lm{pal}#lm{pal}#lm{pal}#lm{pal} stars! A short-but-sweet hack that delivers true platforming goodness. Great job on this hack! #smw{:peace:}

This was a fun and quick hack to play. We love how creative each section was. Although it was challenging in parts, we felt overall the difficulty was fair. We would recommend checking this hack out!

Play it! Nice Style, short and a good one for beginner
SeeFooBoo Link
Really enjoyed this hack. I really appreciated the 1 mistake afforded in each section.

I'm beginning to learn KAIZO, and this was a nice hack for movement. About a 1 hour to complete. 5/5

This hack is extremely fun, plays directly into my cards and into what I really like about Mario levels. Just fast paced platforming and not too complex levels! 5/5 from me
NattCaat Link
It's a really good hack, the challenges are fun, the music choice is on point and every level features an interesting gimmick.
Especially the final level was really satisfying to complete, it kind of felt like the stages before were a preparation of this particular moment.
Anyways I give it a 5/5 #smw{:peace:}

Nice short hack that focuses on pure platforming with some challenge here and there. It feels sort of kaizo-ish, but you get a powerup in every level that gives you a little more room for error.

This hack is often recommended for newer players who are starting to get into kaizo, and I think it's a good choice, although make sure you're at least a bit comfortable with your movement, because this hack still requires some quick reaction time and there's a lot of pits under the gameplay.

Good hack

Really fun. Challenging but clear platforming.

Very enjoyable! I actually played this immediately after Slurdgery, and I can definitely see the influence (in a good way). There were a couple of sections where I felt the "flow" of a level wasn't perfect, but this was a great, short hack with a good difficult curve and creative level design. The last level was my favorite - an easy 5/5. Especially for the very last section where you seem to coalesce so many different ideas all at once so perfectly.

4/5

Had a real blast playing this hack. I'm too bad at Kaizo, but this is exactly my type of stuff. Thanks a lot! This definitely scratches my Super Mario itch much better than most official Mario games recently, and I'd totally pay for this kind of stuff. Glad to read you're working on a sequel. :)

Really fun game!! Loved it. No complaints really, I guess not having a power down animation and starting already big would be a cool addition but it's not really a problem.
This is in "very hard" but I bet it would be a nice starter hack for kaizo beginners.

This was a lot of fun, nice work.

5/5 I loved the hack #smw{:TUP:}

fun little hack, took a little less than 40 minutes to beat blind. favorite level was night of the spike. if you like nachos and slurdgery, you should consider playing this.
 Kevin Link
I finally got around to playing this and I'll echo what others said: good hack, greatly enjoyed it, only complaint is that it was very short. Keep up the good work!
KiD_ViD Link
I had a great time with this hack. My only complaint was what someone else said: I wanted more! The levels are nicely themed, and the final level is a great synthesis of everything that came before. There's some challenging platforming, but it's fair and very forgiving. I'll be on the lookout for more from Darolac in the future.

i like the music and the level design, in general it's a great hack

My only actual complaint is that it was too short - I got through everything in maybe 45 minutes at the most? More pls. Gimme.

Great work :)


Glad you enjoyed it. You will like to know that I have some sort of a sequel already planned for the future. Stay tuned.

This hack demonstrates how minimalistic level design can make for a great experience. Super fun!

I am no expert or elite SMW player but even so I had a blast playing this hack.
Each level having its own gimmick as well as an upbeat track to keep you going really helps create a super satisfying experience when overcoming tough obstacles.

No joke it took me a few hours to beat because I was adamant to perfect the levels to try and get by them as smooth as possible.
It'll introduce gimmicks and hazards as a speedy but fair pace and then throw a twist at you that you'll have to work into your movements and problem solving.

Nothing feels too overbearing granted I'll probably go to the grave hating Fishing Boo.
I heartily recommend this hack to those who fancy a challenge.
Fantastic Work Darolac. #smrpg{y}

My favourite gimmick was probably the Piranha Plants just because of how creatively they were used.

I would like to say yes. The main focus of the hack is on platforming, so I think you can use it as a pre Kaizo hack if you want. In any case I have put a lot of effort into it so I'm hoping you at least have a fun time with it!

Levels are designed really nicely with each having their own gimmick.
The difficulty is really hard but fair.
The music choice and the palettes are nice.
And the way the hack ends is really nice as well.
I would recommend this hack to anyone looking for a very hard experience
SwampMage From older version: Of Jumps and Platforms Link
really fun!
Picsa From older version: Of Jumps and Platforms Link
I liked the difficult balance, it is not hard, but challeger in a fair level design. Good job to Darolac!
