Description: The voice of Mario was heard in the land. 'Mamma Mia! Here we go again.' Yet another kaizo hack from a dinosaur who is quite happy to be difficult, frustrating and obscure. This time I consulted the Good Book.

You may pronounce the title in ordinary English as SOR-tees BIB-li-SEE.

There may be soft locks occasionally that are inconvenient to fix--you may always start-select out of a level.

1.1: Already I must fix level one. I love making rom hacks.
1.2 And again. Truly Lunar Magic is of the Abomination of Desolation.
1.3 LouisDoucet has urged me to make a sprite more difficult. YouFailMe has insisted having cheese and meat together is against the law of Leviticus.
1.4 To chastise the flesh and humble the spirit, the modern monk need only make a romhack. Various other necessary fixes communicated by the aforementioned persons.
1.5 One more for luck.

Being the first of your hacks to play 100% blind, I was a bit worried going in, but it turned out to be a great time. Found it really fun and challenging to figure out, and the creativity behind each gimmick always kept things unique and interesting, as per usual with your works. (also liked the clever titles, level 3's is my favourite)

I found some alt strats that don't seem intended (showcased here at the second sections of levels 6, 7 and 9). They barely cheese anything, but consider them if you're making another patch.

Looking forward to next year :)

What a clever hack. It had some really enjoyable and brutal moments, such that some parts took me a while to figure out. I personally think levels like
the monster hand level
could have the ON/OFF switch reset so later obstacles aren't moot and you don't need to suicide to reset it. But I must say, I tortured my soul a thousand times while figuring out everything in the final boss fight (not an issue though, but rather a complimentary comment). Otherwise, it's been a while I haven't experienced a hack as unique as this.

Frustration, joy, ruthlessness, satisfaction - you can find it here.

This hack was a delight to play, with some of the strangest yet most creative obstacles I've had the fortune of solving. I particularly loved the lategame levels, though there were some brutal moments for sure.

I got all the references :) :D :O

Updating my comment as I have since cleared the hack and a portion of my previous comment is no longer relevant.

I had the pleasure of playing this hack over the course of two days while accompanied by some of my closest friends in the SMW community. With my gameplay combined with our collective brain power we triumphed, but there were a few bumps in the road. Some of the execution requirements can be frustrating and downright brutal at times. However the satisfaction of figuring out the plethora of unique, creative setups is something I haven't experienced since playing Odd Sands for the first time.

There is no life after death, but surely the pain of sin will be healed here!!!

Again, the fresh and tempting fruit of sin tempts me to taste it wildly.

And the blood must serve as YOUR sign upon the houses where YOU are; and I must see the blood and pass over YOU, and the plague will not come on YOU as a ruination when I strike at the land of Egypt.
