Sayonara Mario World is a very chocolate kaizo hack heavily inspired by the rhythm game Sayonara Wild Hearts.
It does not feature:
a water level
I hope you enjoy it. <3
1.01 - added a message box before a boss fight to increase clarity
1.1 - housekeeping update: fixed various small gfx issues, and slightly tweaked a few jumps/sections throughout the game to improve overall flow and difficulty curve
This may be my favorite hack. It's endlessly innovative and charming and presents bold ideas (as well as some "but is it too bold?" ideas, which honestly I find to be part of the appeal). All-around it's a super classy romhack that I respect the hell out of and highly recommend.
I had to try this after seeing it at a recent event. It must be one of the most visually appealing hacks I have ever seen. There are many tremendous level concepts, with diverse obstacles and activities and many exciting moments. My major (and minor) criticism is that you often have to travel at full speed with little chance of correcting properly if you started badly; the levels are short enough that this doesn't really matter. The dolphin level was my favourite.
A pretty fun kaizo experience overall. Each level has a unique gimmick, most of which I enjoyed, and because of that most levels felt unique and interesting from each other.
There were a few levels I didn't care for because of the ASM used, but I enjoyed a lot of the levels and thought the final two were very interesting. I'd like to go back to the final castle and experience what I missed there.
Due to the chocolate nature of the hack there were some parts a little more difficult to understand than others. After playing this myself and watching a few more people play this game blind I think there are a couple sections that could use a little tweaking if there happened to be a 1.2 to help smooth things out a little more.
Overall this hack wasn't too hard and seems fairly accessible to a wide range of players who want to take it up. If you're looking for a chocolate experience give this one a shot and see how you like it.
Fantastic! 5/5. Very chocolate heavy. Often times I prefer vanilla. Very well known fact about me, but this hack struck a chord in my heart; my wild heart! A lot of variety of chocolate can be seen in this hack and the setups are very creative/interesting. There's a few times it gets pretty tricky, but it's not so much of a bad thing. It's just that some parts are fairly difficult and chocolate at the same time. Overall the hack isn't insanely difficult or anything. Far past what a beginner should play, but nowhere near the hardest hacks out there. The chocolate can just sometimes make it seem harder than it actually is, while being very creative at the same time. Very fun hack that is very well thought out and brilliant in a lot of ways. If you love chocolate, this is definitely a hack you don't want to let get buried in the list of smw hacks on here. Amazing chocolate heavy hack here, somewhat difficult because of unique chocolate setups, but a must play for chocolate lovers. Final note, you may hate the 3rd exit, because of blindness, but forgive the maker for that. lol. The hack really is amazing and that level is probably a lot better on a run back, but is a bit extreme for blindness. lol. Keep with it...
