I could be terribly wrong, but I'm going to assume this is your first hack. This hack wasn't awful by any means; some concepts and level ideas were pretty nice, but the core aspect of any hack, the level design, needed a bit more work. And once level design fails, everything else (graphics, music, etc.) will unfortunately fall flat along with it.

The level design was generally flat and linear. While that alone isn't really a bad thing, it becomes a problem when you can simply jump over all the enemies without much difficulty. When you can just hold the Right button and spam the Jump button and be finished, there's a problem. Try adding more obstacles to give players a slightly harder time navigating through the levels. The first level wasn't the only level that had this issue, but was most prominent in this level. Another problem with the levels is that they were very short. The first level only took me approximately sixty in-game seconds to complete it. This is so even when I slowed down for a bit to hit blocks and defeat all the enemies.

The second level, Blue Chocolate Pie, had a blind jump halfway through the level. Placing coins here to guide the player to safely jump down will be helpful. More levels had blind jumps by the way. Ruby Cave had a Question Block that was extremely difficult to hit as it was placed in an area where you couldn't stand directly below it; I died twice trying to hit it and gave up and moved on. In Aquatic Ambience, you're forced to take a hit if you're Big Mario in the 3-tile-high narrow section with Cheep Cheeps unless you duck constantly. Gloomy Steel Fiends was a fun level with a decent palette, so plus points for that, even though the level was still quite short. Lastly, Boiling Reznors had clashing foreground and background palettes. Try making colors that match each other very well, and also lower the saturation of the background in this level as it was a bit eye-searing to me.

What this hack excelled in the most was the music. I absolutely loved the tracks used. From
Sonic
to
Pokemon
, the music was very pleasant to listen to and made levels feel a bit more exciting to play. That said, good music alone isn't enough for a hack, as level design is just as, if not more, important for a hack.

Palettes were strange-looking to say the least, especially in Ruby Cave where Question Blocks were an odd dark-green color with the outer corners of the block retaining its original tan color. That said, a few palettes were very well done; the first level's background palette was excellent and blended well with the sunny blue skies.

Overall, I'd give it a 3 out of 5; not awful, but can be improved a bit when it comes to level design and palettes. What I do know and can tell is that you have tremendous potential! #smw{:peace:}
