thx for your feedback @3dsalmon, i knew there was a bit of lag in the very last phase, but watching your VOD looked like its more laggy than on emulator...so maybe its an issue when playing on super NT. whatever, I gonna make an update to remove that lag in the future, but for now i need a pause working on this hack ;)
Overall an extremely fun, unique, and difficult romhack. Really creative levels and setups, great aesthetics and cool level themes/gimmicks
HOWEVER, my experience with the final boss was extremely frustrating. I loved it, until I got to the final hit. Whenever the final green shell spawned, the game started lagging horribly. Like, REALLY bad. While it’s possible that it’s an issue on my end, I play on a super NT, so unless it’s an issue with my NT specifically I’m not sure that’s the case. It was extremely frustrating to get through that long and difficult boss fight only to die because inputs were being eaten by extreme lag. In the end I only ended up beating it by keeping the mushroom til the end and damage boosting the final hit.
Still, that was my only major frustration with the hack. Hopefully you can get that fixed (assuming it’s not something wrong with my hardware). Still one of my favorites I’ve played in a long time.
