Description: HYPERION is a chocolate hack featuring expanded graphics, extra and modified sprites, fresh palettes, and a custom soundtrack. This game focuses on platforming rather than trick-heavy setups, so you will find limited item abuse or shell techniques here (there is a light sprinkling of kaizo trolls though).

The overworld paths are branching with the secret exits and switch palaces being necessary to complete the game, but your movement is sped up and your progress auto saves as you move. There are also a handful of secrets and easter eggs throughout the game for exploratory players. HYPERION is my first hack and my labour of love for the past year, I hope you enjoy.

See the included Credits.txt for detailed list of assets and resources used and the Soundtrack.txt for all the music used.

WORKING ON SNES CLASSIC 100%!! For anyone still wondering if this will work on the snes classic, I have good news. you need the snes9x 2002 core. at first there were graphical glitches when changing screens on the overworld and the snes classic suspend points would only boot to the main menu. then after a while the glitches stopped and suspend points began working as they should (minus the rewind feature) seemingly out of nowhere. so i hope this helps anyone who only has the snes classic as an option to enjoy this hack for all of its glory!

As for the hack itself, i loved this one! so many great levels, concepts and setups. sections were kind of long but easy enough for intermediate players to get through without too much hassle. visually speaking the levels and overworld were done beautifully. although, with the multiple paths on the overworld it can get a little confusing which levels you have done and which ones you havent. not annoying enough to take anything away from the hack though. Easily 5/5! GG AmperSam!!

Ran into an issue playing on the latest version of BSNES. Game Keeps freezing up when i get to a specific rope slide on one of the exits on Lava Foothills. Don't know if this has been brought up yet. It has froze the game in the same spot twice in a row.

Can't say I've heard there being issues, but I tested here on bsnes v115 and it does indeed freeze (but not if you one-shot the section first try). I don't I know what exactly is causing it, but the freeze seems to happen right when the rope goes offscreen and despawns. It's fixed in the latest version, available above.

I had the same Problem today with the 115 version of BSNES and the 2.0.1 version of hyperion

Awesome, really loved it. Nothing too hard but very enjoyable. I didn't play the earlier versions, so idk what changed, but this version is top notch!
Jolle457 Link
Great hack so far! Unfortunally, i discovered a bug when playing on my snes classic. In the level flight hazard, right after the checkpoint the game is freezing for me :( But anyway, great work!

Yeah this was present and reported in the original as well, there is a custom sprite that is incompatible with the internal emulator on the SNES Classic.

Greaaaat hack! the first version was good but this is excellent!
BunBunAshly Link
ahhhhhhhh, just finished this and loved it so much! a joy to play, and looks and sounds gorgeous as well. immediately one of my fave hacks, thanks for making <3

So, the hack started me off on Wooly. I'm pretty sure it's not supposed to do that and I can't go backwards, even after beating it.
 AmperSam Author Link
Yeah that's my bad, I accidentally saved where I tested a thing. Should be fixed.
Noob Link
This hack is really wonderful, but it's also really hard and with legitimate settings... I played it, but I didn't finish it... I'll finish it in the old version and play this new version to see the changes. I hope this new version really surprises me...
shaoshao Link
A completely overhauled new version!? I can't wait to play it!
hcwdy From older version: HYPERION Link
This hack was great! All the levels looked so good, and the whole hack fits together very nicely. The branching paths lead to a very grand feel, which I loved. Overall, I had a wonderful time with this hack.
robbobert From older version: HYPERION Link
Really killer hack. I love your get up and go style of level making. Everything flowed really well, and with exception of one or two little spots, the hack was fast but not rushed. It's really awesome when you can just go, and things just work. A few levels felt a little too short, but overall I appreciated that things didn't drag on and overstay their welcome. Additionally, the soundtrack was absolutely kicking. One of the best I've heard. Really helped each level come to life.

I'd say the only part of the entire hack I really didn't care for was the first room of the Abyssal Spire, where the homing orbs quite often meant you just had no shot at all. Everything else was great. Excellent work!

Fun hack!
Hiroki From older version: HYPERION Link
what a great hack ! it goes harder while you are getting over it , i really like it . i give it 5/5
Theresy From older version: HYPERION Link
I really liked this game, my favourite kaizo hack so far!
hey_its_me_bub_bub From older version: HYPERION Link
Great hack overall. I really liked the difficulty, I felt like it got harder as the game went on and is a nice next step up from intro hacks, but maybe not as hard as Akogare. 5/5
Mithrillionaire From older version: HYPERION Link
One of the very best-looking hacks out there, and a fun play. It's mostly on the easier side, though spikes into intermediate at times with some tougher jumps and sequences. Solid hack, well done.
frozenflygone From older version: HYPERION Link
Absolutely incredible level design, aesthetics, and overworld pathing. Each level was so unique and a joy to play. A great hack for intermediate players to gain some knowledge with set ups, chocolate mechanics, and phenomenal design!
Not_Vinicius1 From older version: HYPERION Link
this is an really awesome hack, 10/10
41681 From older version: HYPERION Link
Alotta fun! Very pretty game as well. Good job!
JezJitzu From older version: HYPERION Link
Great hack! Became one of my favourites, wicked aesthetics and solid level design. Would highly recommend to any mid-level player #tb{^V^}
royal From older version: HYPERION Link
great hack, one thing, hope this can be patched, playing on my snes mini Canoe core, Fligh Hazard level glitches after midsave, does not happen on SNES9X though.
5/5 hack
Romano338 From older version: HYPERION Link
Great great hack. Really good graphics (don't be fooled by that weird first preview image :D), great music, nice level design.
D1STYNCT From older version: HYPERION Link
Very well made hack with a nice intermediate level of difficulty. You can tell a lot of love was poured into this hack and I look forward to what the creator puts out next.

Only criticism is a little jank/spawn depenency on a level or two but those are minor issues. Well done AmperSam!
MistaX88 From older version: HYPERION Link
Really well made hack. Fun levels that never overstay their welcome. Nice "expanded vanilla" look to a lot of the graphics as well as some custom details that really stand out. Highly recommend as a step up after the Quickies. No crazy tech that will really stump a newer player just good solid platforming for the most part. My favorite level was probably
The Amityvilla
.
SJandCharlieTheCat From older version: HYPERION Link
Clearly a lot of work went into this. It shines aesthetically, where there's quite a bit a very creative stuff. Creative gameplay, too, though I found some parts a little rote/unadventurous. Music choices honestly didn't do much for me, though that's a pretty minor complaint.

Overall a solid hack, and I'm definitely looking forward to more from you, AmperSam!
thetwaddler From older version: HYPERION Link
Fun hack. Had a few issues here and there like the platforms despawning during the pokey head fight, but overall it was well done. Loved the secrets/aesthetics.
bsolt From older version: HYPERION Link
Really great experience with Hyperion. I can definitely see the love and care you put into the design. Loved the visuals and music choices in the entire hack. My favorite levels was the ghost cave, the vertical section in beta particles, and the final lvl and boss. #smrpg{y}
VolleytheBall From older version: HYPERION Link
I really enjoyed this game. I'm a beginner and this was perfect. Completed it 100% in just over a week
Schwow From older version: HYPERION Link
Great hack, great choice of tricks, great esthetics, great soundtrack, great overworld, really recommendable, keep rocking
DefybyDefault From older version: HYPERION Link
I just finished this hack and I absolutely loved it! It was just what I needed to de-rust SMW. There are a few nitpicky things I didn't like here and there. Biggest one is if you hit exit on the final level after clearing a room and getting a checkpoint (before boss CP at least) you lost the CP and have to start from the beginning again. That could be frustrating for newer players.
TokZone From older version: HYPERION Link
great game hack #smrpg{<3}
Jonah From older version: HYPERION Link
This is one of favourite hacks! I had a blast. The design, graphics, palettes, music, graphics, world map, everything was on point. I thought the final boss was a little on the easy side, but the first room of the final level more than made up for it IMO. #tb{^V^} Thanks for making this!

I thought it was a real banger.


The CREDITS.txt has the music listed by level and with links to them here on SMWCentral. :)

Well this is a new incompatibility I've been made aware of. I don't know what the specific causes are in any of the cases and since SNES Classic players also can't finish the hack I don't know the extent of the incompatibility. Addressing it with an update would likely mean removing ASM or overhauling levels and I likely won't be doing that.


Upon opening the ROM in lunar magic it appears the game crashes at the exact point the custom P Balloon spawns on screen. It must be something in the code that the SNES can’t handle.

I understand the difficulty in having to address the problems and the head aches it would cause so not to worry. I look forward to anything else you may release in the future as this is very solid work.

your level design is so cool, but the best part of your hack is the map.

I loved this hack so much. Really fun!#wario{<3}

LOL I realized you removed the laughing sound effect in the title screen's music
diminish From older version: HYPERION Link
Great hack. I think I'm about half way through it currently. I'm not that great at kaizo hacks and haven't been playing them very long but I'd say this hack is probably beginner friendly. Stages are mostly easy (my death count would disagree) but there's always that 1 spot per stage I absolutely struggle with.
Reviersteiger From older version: HYPERION Link
Just finished three levels, but I can say I enjoy playing this Hack. Also beginners will enjoy it.

I used Flips regularly just like I've previously done with dozens of other hacks. Never had this happen to me


I will assume you are playing on SNES Classic, as others have found a compatibility issue with that level in that emulator. I can't guarantee there are no other incompatibilities (a forthcoming update adds a disclaimer about SNES Classic).


Yeah I saw Chambo87 run into the same problem on twitch. I was actually using a very old Snes9x emu. I never had any trouble, but I guess it's time for an upgrade. Thanks for the reply dude, and congrats, this is a very high quality hack, keep up the good work #tb{;)}.

Really cool hack from what I've played so far! I like how much solid ground there is, and how you're generally safe if you take your time rather than one-cycling every obstacle.

I think I found one bug: The bowling balls sometimes hurt you when you jump on them. My guess is that the hitboxes are designed around having the frame rule patched but this hack doesn't have the frame rule patched, so you clip into them if you're moving too fast.


The frame rule is patched. It's more that the hitbox on these balls is not intuitive to the size of the ball, unfortunately, and less reliable when their speed is increased.

For the little I played, I loved it! In the screenshots I found some sessions with strong colors that hurt the eyes. Other than that, I really liked it!
