Type: Kaizo: Intermediate
Description: Welcome to the Polyphonic Isles, a land once peaceful, now occupied by remnants of Bowser's formidable army as he clears through the land.

Venture deep into the Polyphonic Isles and clear the twin thrones in this hybrid standard/kaizo light hack, designed to give newcomers to kaizo a place to begin (in the primary route) while also providing greater challenges and mysteries to uncover for the more seasoned veteran looking to explore!

Deliberate effort was put into making this hack fun, varied and engaging for speedrunners, with 5 different run categories on SRC and an abundance of intentional (and some unintentional) speed and safe strategies to provide depth.

Featuring:
-Fast Retry
-A fully custom soundtrack, including a handful of original ports!
-A primary, mostly-standard path and an divergent, true kaizo path as you venture to the North.
-25 hidden portrait rooms (see if you can find them all!)
-22 Moons - One in every level! Some are a challenge to gather, while others hint at deeper secrets...


1.1 UPDATE LOG:
-Various minor and major tweaks across a large number of levels, with both nerfs and buffs in appropriate places to smooth the curve of the later hack... sliiiightly.
-A new, special level, accessible through special means...
-Updates to indication on the overworld for moon tracking.
-Improved ASM for walljumping in Folivora Cliffs, with less 'eaten' inputs. Special thanks to dtothefourth for her help!
-Full rework to the third section of The Tower.
-Global timer for the shooters in Purple Pinnacle now resets on deaths, making it significantly more consistent. Thanks MarkAlarm for that tweak!
-Hidden leaderboard rooms, showing the best times in each Speedrun category in 1.0. Try to find them all!

I wanted to thank everyone for their kind words and interest in Polyphony 1.0, and hope newcomers and returning players alike enjoy the changes and new content! Love you all <3

Are you trying to find the secrets? Unfortunately the only way to get off the checkpoint there currently is to reset console/emulator- checkpoints are not retained

Amazing hack from start to finish! I feel that the 1.1 update did a great job in tweaking difficulty higher and lower in the proper spots to better balance the hack as a whole. I’m honored to have my name in five of the trophy rooms, and I look forward to competing for the 1.1 leaderboard!

A very fun standard/kaizo hybrid hack.
The standard portion of this hack is fairly easy while still having some more challenging platforming sections.
The kaizo route is very fun it starts off not being too difficulty but really picks up towards the end.

Overall a very fun hack with great aesthetics and music choices.
Great job Tomato.

A great kaizo, very relaxing, I thought it was a great idea to have an easier part, more vanilla, and a kaizo part, very innovative in my opinion, congratulations to the creators for hack this incredible !!#smrpg{y}
