Description: Inspired by Super Mario Odyssey: Balloon World, this hack takes the original levels and turns them into small puzzles and/or speedrun challenges. Every level has a hidden balloon, and you only have a short amount of time to find it! Luckily, coins will increase your time limit, and you're guided by a handy distance meter towards the balloon.

A very fun way of replaying the original game =]

The challenge here is quite hard (I would probably have put difficulty to "hard"), as a lot of balloons require a near-perfect timing and an advanced SMW knowledge (some balloons require the use of glitches or advanced stuff only seen in speedgaming).

I was able to find all 79 balloons, although I went through the same glitch as Metballs and couldn't get further with my copy of the game, I had to use your save file to 100% finish it. For information, I played on this build on SNES9X : snes9x-1.57-win32-x64

It's just a bit sad that the last exit doesn't save (you cannot see the star next to the level name when completed, and your counter of cleared exits stays at 78)

9/10 (5 stars) Thank you for this refreshing experience =]

I can't replicate it on my end. My best guess is that it's an issue with some specific emulator setup. As a workaround you can download the savefile to play the remaining levels.

I thought we weren't allowed to reupload vanilla levels?

Really fun and creative spin on the vanilla levels.
Got all 68 balloons--Vanilla Dome 1 and Valley Fortress were my favorites.

This is great like a hack inspired of Luigi's Balloon challenge

Absolutely excellent hack. The amount of sheer creativity is off the charts for what would appear (at surface level) to be a rather simple edit to the game. Highly recommend this, was an absolute blast to play. Easy 5/5

Must play! The more familiar you are with the vanilla game the more fun this will probably be for you.
