Mario's Grand Adventure is an hack that, in my opinion, every casual player should play. It's an simple, but enjoyable experience. Levels are looking great, level design is solid. The difficulty curve is lenient but consistent. Pacing is, for the most part, great. Most of the boss fights are solid, altough the final boss is a bit polarising. It is a bit too easy in my opinion.

The first minor issue I have is that this hack will, more oftenly than not, put you before a boss fight, without having a checkpoint near the entrance (justifiable, castle levels are quite short). I don't agree with letting the player go into the boss fight, without giving him any power ups though. In my opinion, before the boss entrance doors, the game should give you atleast 1 extra powerup to make the upcoming fight atleast a bit less frustrating. Also, if the players really want a power up, they can simply get it by just revisiting the previous stage, farm the powerups, and return to the castle. This is all my opinion though, if the author thinks this is the better way, then all power to him.

The single biggest issue I had with this hack was the Thwomp boss. Every time he hits the floor, he can spawn the fireball like enemies (I do not know their official name). The issue is, if you do not have the cape, you cannot kill these fireballs, and since thwomp can spawn multiple of them if you're unlucky, the room will get flooded by them. If you do not have a cape powerup with you, you're pretty much dead. I died several times at this boss fight, trying to beat him without using the cape. My suggestion is to simply remove thwomp's ability to spawn those fireball enemies and replace that with something else. It just makes the fight borderline impossible to win, if the player does not have the cape. Or atleast give him a cape powerup in the boss room.

Other than that, there were not any notable issues I can think of while I was playing this rom hack. Every casual player should play this rom hack. It's short, it's simple, and it's worth it.

Not a cape, it's the Racoon Suit from SMB3! I have no clue what to do about the Thwomp boss, as I did not make him.

If you're using an older version of Snes9x (Pre 1.60), update it. I don't think that older versions of Snes9x work with this hack.

Was looking for a normal difficulty hack. I was absolutely loving it. Played the first secret boss, which was awesome. Then I got to castle 1.

I played it at least 40 times and never once got past "hitting" him once. I'm still not sure how to trigger the hit. Anyway, I quit before I got frustrated. I'm not the best Mario player in the world, but I'm pretty good and unless he was glitched out, I think the difficulty of that boss is wrong.

I saw in your text file that you wanted feedback. The main thing would be the difficulty curve of that first boss is way too much. I really was loving your hack though, so if I'm just missing something or being a dumb dumb, just let me know and I'll head back to it.

Edit: based on other peoples comments, I seem to be the only one stuck on this boss. When I attempt to hurt him, I just jump through him and when I shoot fire at him it goes through him. I'll try more when I get home to see if I'm doing something wrong.

Edit 2: When I got home I was able to make contact with him. I haven't a clue what happened earlier.
