Description: Welcome to 2Kaizo2Learn!!

This is a tutorial hack designed to teach you many of the basic tricks you will use in kaizo hacks. It is not comprehensive, but should give you a solid foundation to play both beginner and easier intermediate hacks.

This hack features:

69 exits
over 130 rooms
training tests
final test
special sections to teach you beginner shell and cape tricks
cool tunes
& much more!

The open overworld design was a driving motivation behind both creating and designing parts of this hack. I strongly encourage you to feel free to move on from, and come back to, tough lessons if you are feeling overly challenged. The lessons are NOT reliably laid out in an "easiest to hardest" order.

Similarly, each section has a test that is based on the tricks in that section. The tests are intentionally a bit tough and you may find you need to play through more levels before you are comfortable taking on any tests!

Quick tipz:
-Press select on overworld to save (including midways) at any point.
-You do need to die (and select exit) to leave a level due to the retry system patched, unless you have beaten the level.
-Press L&R shoulder buttons together to kill mario. Be careful of this in rooms where you have to use these buttons!
-Nearly every level will have a "retry" door that will take you to the previous room. This is in case you find a room too difficult but would like to continue to practice the previous room's trick.

For those of you who are familiar with Learn 2 Kaizo, this is heavily inspired by it and sought to update it in some way and add lessons that focus on tech that is more common now than when that hack was created. NeXuS was kind enough to approve the use of the name as well. However, this is not intended to be a direct sequel or a replacement. L2K is still highly recommended for its well designed tests and focus on interesting glitch tech.

For those who prefer watching a playthrough for some tricks, a playlist of playthrough videos is available here:
. Note this is on a pre-release version, but the changes are extremely minor.

Considering this is aimed at anyone wanting to learn kaizo i found quite a few unnecessarily tight setups.

these are just a few things i found.

In the first regrab level you can hit the ceiling if you regrab too well.
one of the levels had unending p switch music playing.
the key swim setup is ridiculously tight.
the last level had some garbled enemy graphics.
the double shell jump setup is Absolutely too close to the wall.

Don't take this as me hating it, because i don't. I just feel this needs a bit more work put into it.

All in all a decent learning hack.
thank you for taking time out of your life to make free and fun content!

It's nice to have an updated version of something like this. Even after all this time, people are still getting into kaizo as new players. That aside: it's a good game on it's own, regardless of it being a teaching tool. The cape stuff was hard for me, but it's just because I don't like cape much. Lol. Else, very beginner friendly, very approachable. Great work!

Another excellent resource for beginners! maybe a tad heavy on the text for anyone that reads all of it. I love that you included the 3 asm at the end. Really excellent work all around!
