This is a little kaizo collab hack that was intended as an easier hack around the same difficulty as most other starter hacks so that newer players getting into kaizo can learn and get more skilled.
The game features a small difficulty curve with level slowly ramping up in difficulty while staying within a newer player's ability.
If you end up struggling or getting stuck at some point, there are 2 secret exits which lead to harder optional levels. Upon completing the optional levels, you will unlock a shortcut on the overworld allowing you to skip a few levels and get closer to final castle, this is to give the player an alternative if they feel like they need one while also letting them feel like they earned it.
most levels are pretty short with checkpoints being common so that no level overstays its welcome.

This hack was made and finalized in a little less than a week
as a project to test our creating skills under the pressure of a very short deadline.
Made on the RHR baserom, with purely vanilla gameplay and custom graphics and music.
Difficulty curve was essentially non-existent, for my skill-set at least. There would be late levels I would finish within 5 tries, early levels that would take nearly 10 minutes. I get that it's a collab hack and all, but I don't think I personally would have chosen the difficulty curve as one of this hacks strong suits lol
