Description: "Play To Win" is a hack that i started creating in the last months of 2021 with the idea of being polished, traditional, gimmicky, fun and creative.

Changelog:
  • Added a secret exit in world 6 to make access to the first world faster.
  • Made more graphical updates and reworked parts of various levels.
  • Added a block with a star in the final boss's room.
  • Made some graphic updates and some adjustments on various levels.
  • Fixed a softlock in the midway point of world 2's castle.
  • Made some graphical updates.
  • Made World 5's castle longer.
  • Removed World 5's castle boss.
  • Fixed a yoshi coin not appearing in the second room of "Thwomp Gymnastics".
  • Removed a secret pipe in 2-1 that was leading to an endless "bonus game" room.

This was a really fun hack. I thought the variety in the levels was great, and the overworld looked really nice. It's small enough to play through in a few hours, and it was enjoyable the whole way through.

Spoilers for the final level below...

The final boss was a bit frustrating, but satisfying in the end I felt. The veggies would often get taken out by the bubbles before I could grab them, and then you could only hit him when his mouth was open so my shots would often collide with a bubble instead of connecting. Eventually I got into a rhythm and was able to take him out, but I think I probably died as much in that one fight as in the rest of the hack combined.

Finished it in less than a hour. It's very well made and the difficulty is appropriate. I enjoyed the graphics and music, overall a very good hack which I greatly recommend to play.

Very nice hack short and sweet. Great artwork that really popped, some fun gimmicks and variety in levels made the hack really stand out. Great job.

This was fun!

Not terribly difficult, which is good for a Normal hack. Took me just under 90 minutes to get all exits and dragon coins. (Though a couple of dragon coins were in kinda rude spots)

Nice visuals and music throughout.

Thanks for making this!

Beated the hack, Short but nice.
It works perfeclty with the canoe emulator (snes classic), but unfortunately in the last level when u enter the P Balloon room it wil crash. So i needed to switch emulator for the last level.

Mr. MS Author Link

bandicoot From older version: Play To Win Link
Great hack, I played it and recomended for a friend of mine to play it on stream.
Level design is very good
there just a few pieces of feedback that I think can improve the hack:

1)The Iggy boss on world 1 was by far the hardest boss in the game especially due to his "vulnerability period" being so short, by the time the player landed the jump on him he was already invincible again and the player would sometimes take a damage that dont feels very fair.
2)this may be minimalistic and probably dont even matter but after the Wart boss fight the game just ...ends and goes back to the map.
I know the hack purpusedly has no story but I think adding a ending cutscene or even a "thanks for playing" screen would probably make beating the game feel more meaningful and gratifying.
SamBamPlays From older version: Play To Win Link
Great game, really enjoyed it! There's a place reserved in Mushroom Hell for that version of Iggy.
Thanks Mr. MS #tb{^V^}

Maxi From older version: Play To Win Link
Im just bad or its a bit to hard for the "normal" rating, overall good hack though.
MrJ'lien From older version: Play To Win Link

Ahh, okay.
Anas From older version: Play To Win Link
Have yet to play this hack and the overall presentation looks great judging by the screenshots, but what was wrong with world 5’s boss that made you remove it? Seems odd since the other bosses are there, and the changelog caught my eye, so might as well ask.

I'm about halfway through this hack and I'm SO IMPRESSED by the presentation on display here. Levels are well designed, soundtrack is top notch and the overall asset selection is top tier. GREAT WORK!!
edwinmusic From older version: Play To Win Link
amazing!
 ItsaMe.64 From older version: Play To Win Link
I really enjoyed this thing. The graphics were neat and the levels were fun, easy, befitting the difficulty, and enjoyable. Well done!
karinou From older version: Play To Win Link

I'm kind of late in replying to this (I just discovered this looking for other hacks and found this again by mistake due to its new name), but it was probably some bug on the SNES classic 🤷.
Last time I played it I assumed there were only three worlds. Maybe more worlds were added in an update or maybe they were there all along.


There was only 3 worlds in the demo version, and yes, they were added after, i think the endless bonus room you mentioned was in the world 3's castle where the demo ended.


Yes, that's how I remember it. I think I also looked at in Lunar Magic but this was a while ago.

I've started playing the new version from the start, and I like the auto-saving.

A wonderful game with sometimes quite challenging, albeit short, colorful and well designed levels =]

Special mention to the very detailed and polished overworld ! GGs for world 5 in particular where you basically get one dedicated overworld section per level !

The new bonus stars game is refreshing too =]

My only complaint is that you are maybe using the "Yoshi Coin hidden somewhere in the sky thanks to a hidden block" gimmick a bit too much in the early game.

Speaking of Yoshi Coins, the last one of castle #3, Thwomp Gymnastics, disappears for some reason. As I could only find 4 Yoshi Coins I took a peek in Lunar Magic and saw that the last coin is intended to appear in the second room, at the right side of a net. But it does not appear, regardless you collected the previous Yoshi Coins or none of them when entering that room.

10/10 (5 stars) Thank you very much =]

What you call "powerup spam" i call it a way to make the game easier for less skilled players, maybe I exaggerated with the number power-ups in some places but as I said, I made it so less skilled players can also feel comfortable playing without losing everytime.

Conor1213 From older version: Play To Win Link
Awesome hack! I'm currently at the castle in World 6 but my screen goes black once I enter the door. Is that part of the game or did it crash on my SNES Classic?
Ddog282 From older version: Play To Win Link
Played this on my channel! Thought it was extremely fun! I really loved the variety of levels in the hack. The music choice was very good as well (Shout out to Pandora Palace from Deltarune)

edwinmusic From older version: Play To Win Link
AWESOME!
quickdraw86 From older version: Play To Win Link
The visual design of this, and the palettes used especially,were great. The Piranha and Wart boss battles were janky.
CosmicChrisTV From older version: Play To Win Link
nice
BananaFone From older version: Play To Win Link
im in love with the colors you used for this hack O.O
Retrospectre From older version: Play To Win Link
Nice work! Hands down on of the best 2022 Super Mario Rom hacks I've seen so far.
Final Theory From older version: Play To Win Link
I like the difficulty level because it wasn't crazy hard. Some graphics and music I like as well.

The boss with Wart is kind of janky because I had to get behind him and hold the item and hit it on him.
VitorSMHack From older version: Play To Win Link
I like so Much this Game, very well M.S.
 Anorakun From older version: Play To Win Link
Fantastic hack. Each level feels distinct. Aesthetics are top-notch. Music choice is superb. Difficulty is very chill. I recommend this hack if you want a chill hack to relax and have fun.
neidoodle From older version: Play To Win Link
there are too few non-kaizo hacks these days and this one makes up for that a bit :D so creative, polished and well designed.
dougeff From older version: Untitled Link
What is the music in Writing History? Its my jam
Cesworld From older version: Untitled Link

Nice hack! Could do with more saves though. Since I found it quite challenging (since I'm bad) I needed to farm 1-ups. Still, I agree with the difficulty rating. Also, at the end, you're stuck in an infinite bonus room.
PSYotta From older version: Untitled Link
omg
danwaleby From older version: Untitled Link
You did this in a few months??
 Amethyst From older version: Untitled Link
Fun lil demo you've got here! Loved the aesthetics and music and you achieved spot on standard: normal difficulty. Thanks for the chill time. 💚
rocksteadyDRIP From older version: Untitled Link
So how do you save? 3 Worlds in no save.
karinou From older version: Untitled Link
Eh beh, the first level was something for me, but it was a good hack, nothing specially bad i seen, some good ideas for the levels building, and particulary the overworld, and the background of the levels pretty good job in the hack
 BeeKaay From older version: Untitled Link
Cool hack. Some of the level design is reminiscent of harder hacks, but the sections are short enough that it's not that hard.

A couple of bugs:

- This skull raft doesn't spawn sometimes.
- This boss can clip out of the stage, forcing you to wait out the timer. It happened when I damaged him as he was right next to a wall.
