V1.4
Update made on request by a player to fix the blue switch palace blocking acess to a dragon coin on level 4-1 which rendered impossible to 100% the game is the switch palace is beated before collecting it.
More changes were made, check the changes list for more details.

Hack incrível, level design nota 10, dificuldade gostosa, é difícil mas nem tanto (apesar de eu adorar dificuldades altas), o nome ficou meio clichê mas nem ligo muito, as paletas de cores ficaram incrível, mapa muito bem feito, então deu pera ver que você pois muita dedicação, então eu te concedo 5 estrelas, meus parabéns!

Hi Janus, yes these changes are intentional QOL improvements to the game.
When falling on a pit you can hold the jump to get out if you have a powerup, thats why Mario dont die instantly on pits anymore.
Janus Link
Hello bandicoot, greetings dear fellow countryman, your hack is very well designed, a friendly and fun difficulty level and simple but very well thought out challenges that always leave the fun at the top! congratulations bro.

I noticed a few things in the last update (1.4) that I don't know if they were done on purpose:
-When pressing Select, the item in the box no longer falls on the screen, it is instantly activated in Mario;
-When dying in holes in the stages, mario loses his current item, becomes small and finally dies, after that, when returning in the stage, mario starts the stage big (as if he had a mushroom) and not small, like the default .

These points were only seen in the last update. if it's intentional, ignore it.

Really nice hack, i love it...
You did it friend #smw{:TUP:}

Português:
Eu notei que na versão brasileira da hack, nas fases "Ruinas e Cogumelos", quando entra no cano amarelo, a Star Coin não aparece, assim ficando com 4 Star Coins (na fase "Castelo de Larry" acontece a mesma coisa), apesar de ter alguns cutoffs que percebi quando estava jogando. Se quiser pode até dar uma atualizada para não ficar em branco.

English:
I noticed that in the brazilian version of the hack, in the "Ruinas e Cogumelos", when it enters the yellow pipe, the Star Coin does not appear, so I only have 4 Star Coins (in the "Castelo de Larry" level, the same thing happens), despite having some cutoffs that I noticed when I was playing. If you want, you can even update it so it doesn't stay blank.

As long you didnt save on top of the level you can keep the .srm file you were using.


thanks. though there is one more problem that needs to get fixed and that is choosing the 3rd game save slot or MARIO C slot and saving game data there erases all game saves from this game. maybe ask a guy named Stivi for a possible MARIO C sram bugfix as he was working on VLDC11, which also had the MARIO C game save problem & deleting all game saves (see one of the comments there)
bandicoot Author From older version: SMW The Princess Rescue Link
Hi @le_tooner23, I believe that you download those previous roms in .smc format, we cant submit them into that format here which is why they are distributed in bps patches only.
You need to get your own smw rom and patch the .bps patch into it using a tool called floating ips.
the process is the same for every hack hosted in this site.
Also thanks for the cumpliments, I'm happy you liked my games, hope you have fun with them#smw{:peace:}
le_tooner23 From older version: SMW The Princess Rescue Link
Hi, I tried to download SMW The Princess Rescue, without success. I'm using a Super Nintendo Mini console with Hakchi2 CE to add new games. For every Classic Mario World (1-2-3), I downloaded the games with this website and the games works perfectly: [LINK REMOVED]

I can download it, but it doesn't work. In fact, every games I downloaded in this website doesn't work, your other hacks as well.

How is that possible? To be honest, you're the best SMW hack provider I've ever seen, so I can't wait to try an other. Thank you very much.
SirMystic From older version: SMW The Princess Rescue Link
Fantastic hack, would be almost perfect with the absence of a some of the secret exits, super enemy spam in some of the last few levels, and a few other nitpicky level design choices like off screen obstacles and pits.

This game is an honest to Doge treat, there's a modest, but not great number of romhacks I could replay and get that same feeling of enjoyment from as the first playthrough.

This? This is one of them.

Hey there Bandicoot, I've just finished another masterpiece of yours. Very good work again. Even though there are some issues with the Star Coins that happened with me: on Wing Koopa Groove, Mushroom Ruins & Browser Tower, one of the coins disappear at random. I had to keep playing and back to the level, and so it "reappeared". I'm saying this cause these wore the only levels that I couldn't get the 5 coins in a row. Another thing is the 5 Stars Coins before/after the Midpoint. This time is extremely hard comparing to the older version; getting the 5 without dying through the whole (hard) levels was really awful. Other than these things, awesome game with the others you already made! Greetings from BR.

Final Theory From older version: SMW The Princess Rescue Link
I'm getting some glitches on real hardware. The game crashed on me just by loading it and then I got this screen while playing. I think the power-up status is messed up because if I get killed the game freezes and power ups just store koopa's in my HUD.

 1UPdudes From older version: SMW The Princess Rescue Link
Like a few other of Bandicoot's hacks we get another lengthy adventure in various locals that will be familiar to a lot of Super Mario players.
With that said the hack is a fun romp that keeps the player going by adding a lot of new twists and elements to the standard vanilla formula.

An adventure I could recommend to anyone looking for a classic styled hack that'll keep you interested for a long time. #smrpg{y}

erpster2 From older version: SMW The Princess Rescue Link
thanks bandicoot.

but there's one more minor problem to fix.

I saw you wrote this for The Princess rescue 2 game:

I tested and it was gone.


a similar problem is occurring with The Princess Rescue 1 game in world 8 where Mario can walk to an invalid area - move Mario on the yellow dot for "Secret Bonus Palace" level on the OW map and press left on the d-pad to easily reproduce the problem.

prevent Mario from moving left when on the Secret Bonus Palace level dot on the OW map of world 8

@Erpster2 - Thanks for pointing it out, I noticed that just yesterday night, its already fixed.
I removed the message box from there.
I updated the link Just redownload it again.
erpster2 From older version: SMW The Princess Rescue Link
very good.

though it needs another minor fix because in the Mushroom Ruins level in world 7, the message block in the keyhole exit path produces a blank or empty message.
bandicoot Author From older version: SMW The Princess Rescue Link
This update fixes the Yoshi coins requirements for the lost world levels which were inconsistent with the message boxes in the previous version, and the wall softlocks mentioned by 1updudes on the last log.
I also decided to make some cosmetic changes in the title screen.
SmokedAlex From older version: SMW The Princess Rescue Link
Just finished playing this hack. Great game and awesome design of levels. It has the perfect difficulty for a traditional SMW hack. Sprites, colors, and music choices are on point. Very fun to play.

Not sure if it is a bug or part of the gameplay, but in some levels when you fly high and stay in the sky, you start taking damage consecutively until you die. However, this only happened in two levels, which is nothing major.

Thanks for this, bandicoot! #smrpg{mlem}
Louizz From older version: SMW The Princess Rescue Link
Truly a Masterpiece! If You Haven't Played It, What Are You Doing?!?! Play It! 10/10#smw{<3}
quickdraw86 From older version: SMW The Princess Rescue Link
This is another solid hack from Mr. Bandicoot. The star item box was interesting, and, as per usual with Bandicoot hacks, the level designs and aesthetics were on point. Overall, a great time, and while many issues were fixed in the most recent update as of this writing, a few small but rather inconsequential ones remain. For fun factor alone, this gets 5/5.

Edit: Remaining issues:

There are numerous inedible apples on ground level bushes, this is most frequent in world 7.

It's possible to move to an invisible path on the overworked map in Toxic/Bowser world after the first red level in that world, after doing so, Mario moves in lines that do not line up with the path visible on the map. This persists until you leave that area of the map and return.

There's significant slowdown in the Way of the Eaters and House of Despair levels in World 7. There's also a good deal of slowdown in the factory level in World 8.

SMW The Princess Rescue - Update v1.2

List of Changes on English Version:
- Some levels had their difficulty rebalanced to match the game ideal challenge and to reduce frustration
- Some star coins were rearranged in the secret levels to make them easier to get in one go.
- Added Upward fireballs and Classic Fireball Patches, now the player can aim his fireballs by holding UP on the controller.
- The player now start the game with 7 lives
- Tweaked a bit the DDA system so it can be more easily triggered.
- Fixed some typos in the writing (I cant promise it will be perfect since I'm not an native english speaker myself).
- Star Item box now costs one life each time the player use it, this was made so the player wont abuse and to actually trigger easily the DDA System,
and still provides a nice risk vs reward system.


SMW O resgate da Princesa - Atualização v1.2
Mudanças na versão brasileira:

- Algumas fases tiveram a dificuldade rebalanceada para manter uma curva de dificuldade mais suave e reduzir a frustração em alguns pontos do jogo.
- Algumas moedas estrelas estão em localização diferente, facilitando sua coleta em uma jogada só
- Adicionados patches que permitem mirar com a bolas de fogo segurando CIMA no controle
- O jogador agora inicia o jogo com 7 vidas
- Pequenas mudanças do sistema de ajuste de dificuldade, para torna-lo mais acessivel
- Consertados alguns erros de ortografia nas mensagens pós-chefe.
- A estrela de caixa de item agora custa 1 vida a cada uso, isso foi feito para que o jogador não abuse dela, alem disso provem um belo desafio risco vs recompensa.

a follow-up. attempting to save in Mario slot C results in all game saves getting lost as some of the data seems to be saved in the wrong SRAM addresses.

maybe this hack needs an updated sram+ patch since there's a new version of it released in dec. 2018.
 VinylHeart From older version: SMW The Princess Rescue Link
Great hack. Littered with questionable, dick moves throughout.

Namely the random invisible blocks that more often than not will get you hurt or killed. I've got them recorded on stream. Even if you put 1-ups in them instead of coins, they're still kaizo blocks.

The length and spam of enemies in some levels also makes me think you didn't consider the fact that some players would be collecting each star coin for each level without using save states or getting the midpoint. Some are massively tedious and seem out of place as a result (late game sprite spam is another story).

There were also a lot of "funny" decoy puzzle pipes for secret exits that were identical to the actual ones you were supposed to enter scattered all over which doesn't make for a fun puzzle especially for those who do tool-less runs (albeit I normally do a "science" save whenever I see a p-switch for this reason).

Even though I'm not entirely done playing through it, I'm giving it a solid 3/5.

Thanks for the feedback man, by your coment here I worked on fixing that in the sequel, unfortunaly I can't do nothing here on a update because it would break the design of the hack.
But thanks, your feedback was helpful to improve my hack!#smw{:peace:}

still a pretty good hack like the previous version.
 Noivern From older version: SMW The Princess Rescue Link
Just going to quote my review of the previous version because not a lot has changed, except it's now listed as hard.

Originally posted by Noivern
Props to you for finishing a full-length hack!

This was a pretty decent hack, and long. So long, in fact, that a big issue I had with this hack is its length. A lot of level ideas were recycled later to make late-game levels. One or two levels per world could have been cut and the hack would have still been a comfortable length.

Another problem is that difficulty ramps up in the late-game not through difficult setups, but through sprite spam. Setups where there are 6 or 7 sprites on-screen are pretty common towards the end of the game, and they were very difficult to get past without tanking hits.

The difficulty adjustment system is pretty cool, but it encourages just plowing though with complete disregard for your powerups since they become so plentiful. It's the only reason I didn't change the listed difficulty to hard.

MilesTheFox414: World of Ilusion - Forest
Gamma V - I agree with you, to be honest I always build my hacks to be harder than the original game, I like to begin them as normal dificulty like the original games and then let them be hard at the end, my problem with the original Mario games are that they are too easy to beat sometimes.
Victorum From older version: SMW The Princess Rescue Link
I absolutely love this rom hack, with all the details and attention put into it, it's way better than the vanilla game, and rewards you for searching additional exits (in a better way than in the original game).
Every level has its own "touch", the levels are hard but always do-able, it's really fun to play! Thank you :)
MilesTheFox414 From older version: SMW The Princess Rescue Link
Do you know what's the music of the first level of World 3 (Wing Koopa Groove)
Gamma V From older version: SMW The Princess Rescue Link
Despite the Bottomless Pit Rescue Service, blocks that give you reserve Starmen, and Bonus Palaces where you can get free power-ups, I don't think this hack should be listed as Normal difficulty. To me, it feels more like a hard hack that's only listed as normal because of the abundance of power-ups. Even with these, there are still some things that are excessive for a normal-difficulty hack. These include:

* Use of sprite generators in areas where one must concentrate on solving a puzzle. This is most prevalent in Ghost Houses, in which the Eerie generator is overused.

* Jumps that require you to bounce off enemies, the most obnoxious of which involved repeatedly bouncing off enemies to cross spike/Muncher pits. This is something that belongs in Kaizo hacks.

* Sprite spam, which, in some levels, either caused slowdown, disappearing sprites, or flickering sprites.

There are still quite a few creative ideas present in this hack, as well as instances of good level design and aesthetics, but the difficulty should be toned down if you're actually aiming to create a normal-difficulty hack. Look at the difficulty of official Mario levels, barring those of Lost Levels, of course.
Dan314 From older version: SMW The Princess Rescue Link
This hack is amazing, thanks for the hard work. I'm 10 hours in and 16 exits to go, I will get to the lost world!
NatsuFireball From older version: SMW The Princess Rescue Link
What a wonderful hack bandicoot !

Each world has its own theme, and all of them are cleverly connected within a very neat underworld. I found interesting the idea of not instantly dying when you fall in a pit, which makes latter levels easier, because they are very tough to beat.

Indeed, difficulty is well balanced but world 8 & 9 become very hard. There I understand why you put a star available in the reserve item box in top secret areas. Without them, I think some latter levels certainly aren't beatable using savestates.

I noticed just a little bug in world 8 overworld : if you exit the first top secret area (to the right of the map) by pressing left instead of down (which is where the path connects), you are also able to move, but it glitches Mario's moves and lead to incorrect level placements. However this glitch can be fixed by entering a star or pipe.

I give you 5 stars (10/10), a big thank you for the hard word you brought to give us this very good hack =]
OneOf99 From older version: SMW The Princess Rescue Link
Very good hack! The levels (for the most part) were very well designed, with good difficulty progression and introduction of gimmicks. World 8 however was a let down. Enemy spam is not a good way of increasing difficulty and it was just boring at that point. Worlds 5 and 6 were my favorite!

Great hack! I made a Youtube video on it here: https://youtu.be/cTPKn1XJqy4 Checking it out would be highly appreciated :)
bandicoot Author From older version: SMW The Princess Rescue Link
Danielsonic - the "instant-death when falling in a pit" gimmick from the original game would break the DDA system, I figured out that some player would not die due to the enemies but due to falling in the pits as well, so I decided to change the punishment to the same of being hit by an enemy.

About the DDA mechanic, when you start the game it's already on the hardest setting, the number of lives that trigger the powerups blocks are small on the first worlds(between 3~10 on worlds 1,2 and 3), on the later worlds the number slowly increases to between 10~20 lives(World 6,7,8 and 9).
I put several hidden 1up blocks and other gimmicks that make possible for the player to collect plenty of lives, depending on the player skill he will already have a lot of them at the end of World 1.

Danielsonic 87 From older version: SMW The Princess Rescue Link
I played a few levels,and I have already seen something wrong...
When you falls down over a pit,you not die,but "simply"take damage!!And...you can jump over if you press "jump" at one of many frames available to do that!!I think that is a good thing to punish who fells in a pit with "life lost"...so,WHY to change this rule,all at sudden?
Then,on second level,I seen an enemy blocked in the ground at 2 space from the surface.
And my personal opinion...pheraps,better the original brightness graphic than the darker of this hack.
Besides those bad things,I think that this is a great hack^^
but,I believe that some later versions could be on your mind,if you want the hack,that you and many SMW fans really wish to play...

P.S:I have a question::how many life a player have to keep,in order to get the hardest difficulty mode?

niko From older version: SMW The Princess Rescue Link
I enjoyed that hack, but some levels were just bad and uninspired. Overall it was a good demo. 3/5
 Lazy From older version: SMW The Princess Rescue Link
ok so first of all, 75 exits is not a demo. That's the entire game with the last three worlds missing. Please understand that every time you submit something, someone has to play through the entire thing. You're just wasting our time if you submit a demo for every other new world you make.

Honestly, if you want a review of this hack, just refer to the one I left here. It pretty much applies to this hack as well. I also want to mention that this hack was way too many secret exits. You don't /need/ to reach 120 exits you know. Every single exit just made you check every single pipe and coin block. It's tedious and feels super tacked on.
Tho for what it's worth, there were a few novel ideas in this hack, like the lakitu fights in castle 2. I really wish you would do more imaginative stuff like that.

This demo has 47 exits, not 45 - I've fixed that for you.

This is a decent hack if you want something Mario-y - I just feel it wasn't my cup of tea. I wasn't very engaged by the design and I felt some repetitiveness after a while. I especially noticed a pattern with how you hide bonuses - either in random pipes or some place high up that you can access with a vine. The level gimmicks exist but I don't think you were nearly as creative with them as you could, and some gimmicks are just questionable (the invisible coin block ghost house for example).
Also why is there a level that leads to nowhere in every world? Unless they're going to be particularly meaningful in the future, I don't find dead ends to be good overworld design. It's a bit underwhelming to finish a level for nothing, y'know? Even if you are an exits completionist (which I am).

At least I can say I liked the usage of switch blocks to make levels harder, that was rather neat!
