Description: Aeron's Golden Cookie Quest is an old-school styled hack, that has inpiration in various videogames, including Kirby, Mega Man, Castlevania, Ganbare Goemon, Shinobi, Mario and others. Instead of inspiring myself in any hack creator, I wanted to make this project as a love letter for videogames and I plan to achieve that with this hack.

That's not to mean that there isn't SMW hack inspirations, because there's some fews, including: Mario in Japan (a CLDC entry made by Hadron in 2010), FPI's The Second Reality series, Luigi Adventure series by Anikiti (A bit of aesthetics), Wakana Land, and a small sprinkle of kaizo stuff I've seen streamers playing, before I joined Discord in 2020.

Prepare to die a lot and good luck, I didn't add any retry door or retry pipe, just like old-school games. Pain is part of the experience. But don't worry, if you manage to beat the second half of most levels, you can get an 1-up checkpoint to have a second chance against bosses.

The story is simple. Aeron was making a magical experiment, everything went wrong, him and Natsumi were teleported to another dimension. Now they must figure a way to go back home. Each level is planned to have cutscenes.

This hack has lore, but the cutscenes and the player sprite are not done yet, so I only have these 9 levels, for now. In the next version, I plan to have cutscenes and the player character, Aeron.

What this demo contains:
- Various patches aimed for quality of life experience, to make the platforming even more fun;
- 9 levels, filled with graphics ripped mostly by me, save some exceptions.
- Neat selection of custom musics (I included a music list in the zip file, do note some of them are not in SMWCentral);
- Tough platforming;
- Simple and challenging bosses;
- Bumpties (Segment1Zone2 angry noises);
- A small dose of lore;
- NPCs. Try to talk to all of them. They provide more context about the lore...or not.

I hope you have fun!

I'll try to beat it.
Just spent 10 minits in the first level and it's still not beaten because I play like potato.
It's hard but in the good kind of way.
I've been following this on discord for a while and I admire your works because you seem to enjoy yourself a lot, a bit like a mad scientist #smrpg{<3}

Really enjoying this one. It's NES hard, but, in a good way. Really looking forward to seeing some more.

This demo (which has more content than some full hack releases) was an absolute blast - a shit-kicker for sure, but a real good time. It really hits those old school Nintendo Hard notes that it was going for.

Also, frick bumpties.

Whoever download the hack, please redownload again, I've fixed a fatal oversight in my map 16. Now Yamato Bamboo Field is working as I intended, sorry for not noticing that. #smrpg{ohno}
