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.

im surprised this hack got accepted i remember there being a rule along the lines of "rejected if the hack is too similar to the original smw" but im glad it got accepted.

im not sure if its my kaizo brain, but i feel like this hack shouldnt be rated "normal". it should be very hard. i finished a majority of levels with 1 left on the timer, sometimes requiring extremely precise stuff.

besides that, this was a really cool hack. i can only recommend this (but id also recommend savestates for certain levels.
roys castle i cant imagine doing without savestates, its SOOO precise. no room to mess up whatsoever.

but as i said, overall a really enjoyable hack.

simple concept but def a 5* for me.

Awesome hack, a lot of fun for seasoned SMW players. The hack is done a disservice by the rating of "Normal", which is not only inaccurate (glitches, tech, and fast precise movement are required) but also repels the audience that would actually enjoy the game. The only reason I checked it out is because I recognized the creator's name from JUMP. A better difficulty rating would be "Very Hard" imo.

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
5 stars

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.
