Description: Hey! This is my first hack. I wanted to make a kaizo hack with few item tricks, and with obstacles that aren’t very tight. I tried my best to keep the obstacles fair, fun, and as easily readable as possible.

Chocolate mechanics are mostly limited to slightly edited vanilla sprites and things you’ve probably already seen in tons of other hacks. The only unmarked invisible blocks are in the title screen, and shell jumps are very limited.

No secret exits or switch palaces. The only secrets are portrait rooms mostly featuring some of my favourite SMW content creators.

I also made a trailer:
I hope you have fun playing this. I sure had a lot of fun making it.

Version 1.4: A lot of small fixes to smooth out issues I noticed while watching playthroughs. Reworked a couple obstacles to make levels flow a bit better. Nerfed some sections, for example the first part of Banging Blocks. Thanks for all the feedback! :)

Very fun hack! Great platforming, easy to read, and nothing felt unfair or frustrating.

Wow! What an incredible hack, and to think it's your first just blows my mind!

This is quite possibly the best hack I've ever played, it's certainly in the top 5.

The ending section with the screenwrap and running orb is likely the coolest and best feeling section of a level I have ever played in any game ever, seriously!

Solid first hack. All of the levels are well built and well tested. My main criticism is that there's a heavy reliance on falling gray platforms. There must be 50+ two/four tile falling gray platforms in the hack. This made a lot of levels feel very similar since they're used in mostly the same ways in each level. Aside from that there is not much else to complain about. Good work!

wow, this was a damn fine hack. #smw{:peace:} the setups felt polished, creative, and each level had a unique feeling instead of "more of the same".
2022 was such a good year for approachable intermediate hacks. i really enjoy this intro to intermediate level difficulty that recent creators have shined a spotlight on.

thank you for making this!

Loved this hack so much I started speedrunning it. It feels like Riff World 2 (my faovrite hack!) but at a much lower difficulty, making it possible for me to run, haha! Congrats, its truly a fantastic (mostly) vanilla hack!

Absolutely fantastic hack. Enjoyed every level.

Great hack. It's not overly difficult and is just over all satisfying to play.

I had a fantastic time with this. Even the water level was a joy to play!

Really fun, polished hack! A lot of creative obstacles too without them feeling overly contrived. Difficulty is lowish intermediate but it does have longer than average sections for a hack of this style (which I enjoyed)

I do think I inadvertently cheesed the final level by
grabbing the orb too early... I was just trying to grab it as soon as possible but as I did the post-goal walk it looked like there was some more level

Quite a lot of fun, and very impressive for your first hack. Nice work.

Very fun hack!

Hi! Loved playing your kaizo! Simply amazing, with cool challenges! I had a problem in the last level, 11C, because I could collect the ORB at the beginning of the level and thus skip the whole challenge. I thought the red grid would kill me instantly, but no, I managed to collect it and pass the level. Anyway, good job!

Thank you so much for letting me know! I thought I tried everything to cheese it. I'll fix it in v1.2. Also, spoiler alert for the last level.

Super fun hack! Lots of tight platforming with unique setups and a very nice flow. GGs on such a great first hack!

Only other thing I'd mention is that a few songs felt noticeably louder than the rest of the levels, namely the tracks in Dolphin Drain, Serena, and the final OW.
