|Description:||Every morning when I wake up, I take a 42 minute Ice Bath and browse my favorite website for Super Mario World remodellings, 改造マリオあっぷろだえっくす. This morning, however, was special because a new hack (something that hasn't happened in 17 years) was posted on that very site. Hot (though cold because, remember, I was in the middle of taking my morning Ice Bath when I found out this information) on the heels of this grand discovery, I quickly downloaded this new Kaizō Mario and went about seeing what had been done to my favorite Super Nintendo game. The chronicles of which have been brought to your viewing pleasure below...
Rakugaki Mario is a love letter / pastiche / new(?!?!?!) romhack inspired by many hacks from the 2007-2009 era. What originally started as a semi in-joke between friends spiraled out into a much larger project, with a much larger author pool contributing levels (for better or worse). Making this hack semi-unique in nature is, in persuit of MAXIMUM AUTHENTICITY, all tools, sprites, blocks, and music (barring resources made specifically for the project) are from 2007-2009 too. That's right, we're talking Lunar Magic 1.63, JonWill's Blktool, MikeyK's Sprite Tool 1.22, and Romi's Addmusic 4.04. Of course, this wouldn't be playable on hardware by default. To comply with SMWC standards, only the fixed version is available below (in both Japanese and English). It contains the usual modern hack fixes (FastROM, QoL adjustments, Blktool Optimizer, ect), but that doesn't mean it's any less difficult! For SNESGT and ZSNES enthusiasts, you can also play the original unfixed (Japanese) version through this handy link right here. One may be quick to compare this to one of my previous hacking endeavors, but this is a very stylistically different hack that goes in a different direction. If you were a fan of that hack, you may not be particularly pleased that it isn't a continuation / sequel, but I did try to throw a bone in a level or two. Regardless, I still expect this hack to be very difficult. An Author List for individual levels can be found here. Be mindful of spoilers!
Difficulty curve is practically nonexistent, and levels explore various design styles, so you'll never know what's next. Whilst tagged as a Kaizo hack, take solace in the knowledge that this is primarily a Standard: Very (Very) Hard hack. However, because certain levels are played in a style and way agreed upon today to be "Kaizo" (one hit kill, levels played in a strict way, and lots of trial and error), I felt it was a necessity to tag it as such for the unwitting moderator or player who wishes to tackle such a hack.
Notice: It is possible for the first level in World 4 to cause Motion Sickness. Please be advised.
