Really cool design wise. Gameplay in some levels were kind of bad, while others were great. Final boss was annoying more than anything tbh. It's a solid hack overall.

I do have to admit, this nine-exit hack is very intriguing when I booted up the ROM hack onto my emulator!

As for the difficulty setting, it felt more leaning toward HARD difficulty; it's for the most part of being Standard: Hard due to most of the levels aimed at tedious gameplay than some that should be balanced on its level difficulty.

"Narrow Grave" felt a-okay with the gameplay, but nothing else to write home about due to some areas breezing past eeries moving forward in a sine-wave.

In "Escape the Caves", there was one section of the level with scrolling cave layers - grabbing a Yoshi coin in the map requires quickness or else the moving cave layer clips and crushes the player to death.

The positives about the hack include:
- An excellent second-to-last level of the hack, "Bloody Shells". Everything, including the music inserted and the custom ASM fit well in the level.
- Not to spoil the hack for anyone who hadn't played it yet, but the final boss battle was thrilling!

Pretty good hack for Halloween or for spooky times!

4 / 5

P.S.: Here's my playthrough of Forgotten Town. Keep in mind I did use save-states for this video.

Thank you for playing it, watched you playthrough and was nice watching somebody play it though I was totally not ashamed by some parts I have done, I am really surprised, you did not mention "I saw it coming", because let's be honest, that level was not good.

On an hindsight, I should have used that custom asm of "Bloody Shells" a little bit more. So far, it was a proof of concept, but I did not really explored the possibilities with it.

And I am glad you enjoyed it overall^^

Entertaining hack. It's obviously standard hard, at least, not intermediate.

1st level is somewhat tedious, cuz you've got to stop at every section to see what might hit you. Escape the Caves was brutal, and like other levels in the hack, don't make it worth it to go for Yoshi coins or treasures.

I give it 3/5.

I really enjoyed. It was hard and very fun. I think this might go to standard hard, but IDK, I'm not a super expert player. I really loved the music at last level. #ab{;)}

I found some glitches:

- in the underground section of the level "Bloody Shells" when the bowser statues fall in lava their graphics are glitched

- opening the message box make the fog disappear in some levels

Thank you very much to notify me about the graphic glitch in "Bloody Shells". It's in fact an issue I have forgotten to fix. I am glad you had fun with that one^^"
