Details for HYPERION
Super Mario World Hacks - HYPERION Link - Show random
Version History: View
Authors: AmperSam
Demo: No
Featured: No
Length: 24 exit(s)
Type: Kaizo: Intermediate
Description: HYPERION is a chocolate hack featuring expanded graphics, extra and modified sprites, fresh palettes, and a custom soundtrack.

This game focuses on platforming rather than trick-heavy setups, so you will find limited item abuse or shell techniques here (there is a light sprinkling of kaizo trolls though).

The overworld paths are branching with the secret exits and switch palaces being necessary to complete the game, but your movement is sped up and your progress auto saves as you move. (Note: switch palaces do not count towards the exit total.)

There are also a handful of secret shout outs and easter eggs throughout the game for exploratory players. HYPERION is my first hack and my labour of love for the past year, I hope you enjoy.

DISCLAIMER: there is at least one known compatibility issue with SNES Classic.


- 1.0 release version
- 1.0.1 fix exit-breaking yellow switch palace pipe
- 1.1 quality of life fixes, smoothed out some level readability and flow issues, adjusted a boss
- 1.2 ironed out some minor pain points and fixed some unintuitiveness in a few levels

I really liked this game, my favourite kaizo hack so far!
Posted by: Theresy - | Link
Great hack overall. I really liked the difficulty, I felt like it got harder as the game went on and is a nice next step up from intro hacks, but maybe not as hard as Akogare. 5/5

One of the very best-looking hacks out there, and a fun play. It's mostly on the easier side, though spikes into intermediate at times with some tougher jumps and sequences. Solid hack, well done.

Absolutely incredible level design, aesthetics, and overworld pathing. Each level was so unique and a joy to play. A great hack for intermediate players to gain some knowledge with set ups, chocolate mechanics, and phenomenal design!

Great hack! Became one of my favourites, wicked aesthetics and solid level design. Would highly recommend to any mid-level player #tb{^V^}

5/5 hack

Great great hack. Really good graphics (don't be fooled by that weird first preview image :D), great music, nice level design.

Very well made hack with a nice intermediate level of difficulty. You can tell a lot of love was poured into this hack and I look forward to what the creator puts out next.

Only criticism is a little jank/spawn depenency on a level or two but those are minor issues. Well done AmperSam!

Really well made hack. Fun levels that never overstay their welcome. Nice "expanded vanilla" look to a lot of the graphics as well as some custom details that really stand out. Highly recommend as a step up after the Quickies. No crazy tech that will really stump a newer player just good solid platforming for the most part. My favorite level was probably
The Amityvilla

Clearly a lot of work went into this. It shines aesthetically, where there's quite a bit a very creative stuff. Creative gameplay, too, though I found some parts a little rote/unadventurous. Music choices honestly didn't do much for me, though that's a pretty minor complaint.

Overall a solid hack, and I'm definitely looking forward to more from you, AmperSam!

Fun hack. Had a few issues here and there like the platforms despawning during the pokey head fight, but overall it was well done. Loved the secrets/aesthetics.

Really great experience with Hyperion. I can definitely see the love and care you put into the design. Loved the visuals and music choices in the entire hack. My favorite levels was the ghost cave, the vertical section in beta particles, and the final lvl and boss. #smrpg{y}

I really enjoyed this game. I'm a beginner and this was perfect. Completed it 100% in just over a week

Great hack, great choice of tricks, great esthetics, great soundtrack, great overworld, really recommendable, keep rocking

I just finished this hack and I absolutely loved it! It was just what I needed to de-rust SMW. There are a few nitpicky things I didn't like here and there. Biggest one is if you hit exit on the final level after clearing a room and getting a checkpoint (before boss CP at least) you lost the CP and have to start from the beginning again. That could be frustrating for newer players.

great game hack #smrpg{<3}
Posted by: TokZone - | Link
This is one of favourite hacks! I had a blast. The design, graphics, palettes, music, graphics, world map, everything was on point. I thought the final boss was a little on the easy side, but the first room of the final level more than made up for it IMO. #tb{^V^} Thanks for making this!

I thought it was a real banger.

The CREDITS.txt has the music listed by level and with links to them here on SMWCentral. :)

This was a blast, I thoroughly enjoyed it.

your level design is so cool, but the best part of your hack is the map.
