Details for Purgatory
Super Mario World Hacks - Purgatory Link - Show random
File Name: Purgatory
Authors: FYRE150
Demo: No
Featured: No
Length: 21 exit(s)
Type: Kaizo: Light
Description: "The afterlife welcomes you with a path to Paradise."

This is Purgatory: an amalgamation of my video game inspirations, presented as a modern kaizo hack. It seems Mario has met an unfortunate end, finding himself at the foot of Mount Purgatory. The only way to escape is to brave the climb and ascend beyond the apex to reach Paradise.

This hack features:
- 21 exits of pure platforming, primarily (there's very little item usage).
- A variety of custom palettes and backgrounds (with mostly vanilla assets).
- Secret message boxes to find throughout.
- The typical list of QoL patches.
- Fake HDMA :)

With this being my first hack, I had two goals: firstly, to teach myself to play and design kaizo; and secondly, to create a collection of levels that I found to be fun and challenging.

To those that gave me any feedback, to those that helped me directly, and -- of course -- to my wonderful playtesters: there are no words to express how grateful I am. This hack would not be the same without everyone's efforts, comments, and collective reassurance. Thank you all, truly.

To those who will embark on the journey to Paradise: I wish you good luck and I hope you enjoy it.

This was a joy to play from start to finish, the attention to detail throughout is incredible. This is a great hack to really help with jump control, I think this is ideal for intermediate players and above but is very accessible to any player. Amazing job working on this and I hope to see more of your work in the future! 5/5

Fyre really is a master of "french vanilla" aesthetics - which are consistent throughout both this hack's visuals and level design. Fun and polished levels from top to bottom. #tb{:>}

An extremely well made hack that shows it was made with lots of love and attention to detail, and this not only being Fyre's first hack but also being their introduction to playing kaizo is incredible.

An excellent hack. Well-polished aesthetics, interesting yet familiar gameplay, and a keen eye for design makes Purgatory stand out. Thank you for making, FYRE.
