Darkside 2

Super Mario World Hacks → Darkside 2

Submission Details

Name: Darkside 2
Author: Insanit
Version History: View
Demo: No
Featured: No
Length: 8 exit(s)
Type: Kaizo: Intermediate
Description: Light vs Darkness

The conflict that has plagued humanity for ages, the struggle between good and evil. There is no victory.
Darkness is cunning, but it can never defeat light
Light is peaceful, and although it cannot defeat darkness, it can drive it away. Light and darkness do not mix and this truth creates endless wars.
Darkside 2 continues the story of Mario on his journey against darkness, it has returned and is stronger than ever!

This hack brings a good dose of chocolate, very gimicky and challenging.

- No secret exits
- Mainly short levels
- Lots of custom stuff, including own ASM

This hack have a lot of QoL patches and other improvements including the X Speed Oscilation Fix.

What else can I say? Have a good time!


I said this hack never gonna be updated, I was wrong lol


- Weirwood: No more tight p-switch timer
- Lake of Mira: Small nerfs in first half
- MET Inc.: Removed the annoying ball and make so you can get p-speed faster; Removed useless camera block from 2nd half
- Kleptomaniac: Better ending
- Palace of Darkness: Dark Room decheesed
- Other small changes that doesn't matter at all


- General re-color
- Small nerfs
- Added a checkpoint to Kleptomaniac


Back after 7mo with another mind I noticed a few things I SHOULD have changed or neither added so why not update this again... and here we go with:

- Small nerfs
- More re-coloring because YES
- Less JANK

A solid hack with strengths and weaknesses. Unfortunately I had not that much fun playing it. 3/5

A short and easier hack. Nothing you haven't seen before, but there's no jank and - just like Darkside 1 - it satisfies the kaizo craving.

A clean and challenging hack with good intermediate difficulty. The levels were fun, fair, and readable. Don't have a lot of critique or bad things to say here, just enjoyed it.

Pretty cool hack. The levels are relatively challenging but feel fair for the most time. It gives me a somewhat Morsel-like feel with its own twist. I had a lot of fun playing it, although there's a couple things I'd like to point out:

- I think the description mentioning that the levels are "mostly short" is a little misleading imo. I agree that there's a couple shorter levels, but I found most of them to be about average length in a kaizo hack, and the final castle is quite a bit longer than the rest
- I wish the last level had one or two extra checkpoints that reduce the need to repeat the previous rooms if you die far. It gives me a bit of a 5 room castle feel, even though it technically isn't one. I think its checkpoint system feels different from the other levels, but that's not inherently a bad thing, just something I personally didn't vibe with
- I found the midair saw jump in the ON/OFF toggle level to be a lot harder than the rest of the level. I might have done something wrong though, not sure
- If you die after defeating the first boss, the music breaks and stops working until you restart the level.
- The camera glitches sometimes when you respawn in the first half of the final castle. Be sure to check out your spawn position/camera settings to make sure the camera is properly centered on the screen.

Overall I thought this hack was a positive experience, I think it's a good choice for people who are looking for something on the higher level of intermediate, but don't want to necessarily start a really long playthrough.

Excellent hack, one of my favorites from 2021.
Darkside 1 was fantastic,and this one I liked even more,beautiful worlds,beautiful levels.

Just beat this today. Excellent hack. Incredibly creative setups and extremely well implemented usage of chocolate. This was super fun to play and I highly recommend it. However, this hack is challenging, probably harder than Invictus. I'd only play this if you've beaten Invictus or other hacks of a similar difficulty.

Only thing I found weird was the first level being much shorter and easier than the rest of the levels. Thank you for making this. 5/5.

Without words, Darkside 1 was fantastic, and this one is just as good!
Beautiful overworld, beautiful levels, and yet, to the sound of undertale, is there anything better? xD
I don't think I deserve to play such a good hack xD, anyway, congratulations for the work, it's fantastic 10/10!
