Unlike the prequel, this one starts about as hard as the end of Another Special World 1 and keeps its difficulty all the time, therefore making it a more challenging hack.

I personally enjoyed this one more as it challenged me more than the prequel, but both were a good time. This one is a little more varied and feels a bit like DLC to SMW Gaiden, minus the trolls. Good job.

4/5 stars, and heres why:
The first level already proves to me that the rest of the hack is just going to be spam.
Im saying this because there are way too many spinys everywhere. Theyre not even placed strategically, theyre just there. Obviously this means that theres not a lot of walking space, mostly twirl-jumping. The part with the charging chucks and lakitu is way too difficult, simply because of poor placement and way too many enemies. even if i beat this level, would i be able to beat the other ones without getting game over?#smrpg{ohno}

I had fun with this! It was a lot more difficult than the first "Another Special World" hack. I would basically describe this hack as a collection of 9 traditional Mario platforming levels, but the difficulty's been turned pretty high. It's probably more difficult than the NES Mario platformers. I already found the levels to be pretty hard by "FEAR THE TREES". I finished the game with a minuscule 21 lives remaining, but I went for all the Dragon Coins and Moons I could find, and I don't like to go back to previous levels to farm for powerups.

One thing that stuck out to me was that several powerups were difficult even to reach. It's not really my favorite design choice, but your powerup status has a huge effect on how many options you get in the level. A Feather or Fire Flower can absolutely bulldoze some of these obstacles, so maybe it's justified to keep them just barely within your reach. "MT THIN MINT COOKIE" changes it up a bit, in that staying small lets you spinjump-kill the rainbow shells.

Hacks like these show that sometimes, traditional-ish Super Mario platforming can still be a great time in 2021. I can give this an enthusiastic 5 Special Worlds out of 5, since it seems like this hack does exactly what it sets out to do. If you are a super player, give this a try!

Nice little collection of levels. Mostly just pretty tough platforming, which is always welcomed and enjoyed. Thanks. 💚
