Description: This is a Halloween-themed hack that was started in 2019 and finished in 2022. There are 34 exits, spread across 5 worlds.

Story:
Dry Bowser has stolen the candies, and without them, people can't go trick-or-treating, because nobody has candy! It's up to Mario to defeat Dry Bowser and save Halloween!

The hack has 2 versions: an English version and a Portuguese version.

Update 1.1: Made some nerfs and minor changes to some levels and some other changes, such as adding autosave.
Update 1.1.1: Two minor changes to two levels and translated two things in the Portuguese version.

This is a great adventure style hack!

This was a lot of fun to play over the last few days!

I've been enjoying this hack on and off stream! Is there a way to re-enter castles, ghost houses, etc and finish them for the option to save to prevent having to redo levels with a game over between save places?

Really Love this hack, just wanted to mention that when trying to go down pipes, as in any regardless of the level, the screen freezes with black distortion lines across the screen when playing on Snes9X emulator. Is there a possible compatibility issue or is this something I alone experience? Either way, love the hack, just wanted to mention an issue I ran into and wondering what could be the cause of it.

QuantumLugeep, I had the same issue when trying to go down one of the pipes in the first level and my screen went black as well and then the same thing happened in the second level when going into another pipe.

I've just tried on the latest version of Snes9x (1.61) with both version of the hack and I don't get the freezing when entering pipes. My beta testers weren't having these issues either.

Looks like the hack is incompatible with the SNES Classic's default emulator (Canoe).

Thanks for replying. I just wanted to point out the issues I ran into to hopefully help out the author, despite the issues I still really love this hack and gave it a 5 out of 5! The theme, level design, music, and length are really nice! I appreciate the hard work put into it! BTW I am playing the game on CFW new 3DS, so that may also have something to do with it. Either way, love the hack, and look forward to more from the author if they make more in the future. Hope you all have a safe and happy halloween this year! #lm{specpal}

I am playing on a SNES Classic so I don't think it's just the emulator. I am just going to avoid those pipes I guess. I played the last Demo of this hack and it is amazing. Can't wait to play the full game!

Edit*: After further play testing, was able to play without the same issue on blargSNES with no issues... until I got to the end of the second world first level, some weird issue occurred where the game slowed to a crawl and then crashed after entering the next level. I want to point out I also happened to get enough end of goal stars to do the 1-up mini-game, not sure if that had anything possibly to do with causing it, but wanted to also mention it, was the first time getting the mini-game in the hack thus far. Again, only pointing this out to hopefully help the author of this fantastic hack, really loving it, despite this issues I encountered.
Edit2* I tried replaying that first level of world 2 again and the same issue did not occur, so I believe getting enough stars at the end goal and doing the mini-game may have led to that issue on blargSNES emulator. Hope this information is helpful to author. I think this may be my favorite Halloween Mario hack ever, it really is that good! Wouldn't be posting this if it weren't haha, keep up the good work!!

This was super fun! The atmosphere created by graphics, palettes and music as well the level design are coherent throughout. The difficulty is well laid out as well, the last 10 or so levels were quite tough for me (but still fair). Thank you for your your hard work over the last few years!
NappaBoi From older version: The Quest for the Candies Link
I'm a world into this hack and so far this hack is great. You did a terrific job. The level design is good, and the difficulty jumps are very manageable. This hack is the kind that doesn't require too much skill but it tests your platforming skills decently. The music choice is great, especially the title screen music!

I just registered to congratulate you for this amazing demo. I'll wait for the completed game. Thank you.

Are you trying to load the .bps patch directly with the emulator or are you applying it to a clean SMW ROM with Floating IPS?

I enjoyed this quite a bit! Did video with commentary: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lmXFGvDccOg

Fun demo.

First 2 levels were nothing special, but after that, it gets more interessting and challenging. Levels are a bit too long maybe, but not too bad.

But please, no jumpscare in world 2. I whould like to play mario without having the fear of getting a poopy screamy image in my face :(
