Tip: Remaking levels from other Mario games is strongly discouraged, especially popular ones (World 1-1 from SMB or SMB3, for example), as their over-presence in Mario games, official or not, often makes them uninteresting to play.
While Mario was asleep due to poisonous wine, a group of mysterious and powerful enemies which call themselves "The Senate" took over the Mushroom Kingdom. Is Mario able to defeat all of its members through a lot of new worlds and enemies? Only time will tell.
v1.3 fixes a lot of minor stuff and a broken midway entrance. Check the readme to see what's changed.
This hack is looking pretty decent, there's just one thing I'm not enjoying: some stages have 4 dragon coins, some have 6... that's bad design, every stage that have dragon coins should have 5 dragon coins.
For example, I can't get the last dragon coin in Pineapple Beach 3. Some few friends said they got them, but the coin despawn if you collect many regular coins or something. Can you fix this, @Fornaxus? Really annoying.
edit: so this Pineapple Beach 3 bug is really weird. If you get many coins in the falling cave area (previous to the last area), the last dragon coin doesn't show up. If you get few coins in the falling cave area, the last dragon coin shows up normally.
This hack is soo well made, it's perfection! have a lot of good things, like that not have a BROKEN difficulty!
I love soo much this work, and for that i do some very hard training to do the first speedrun no deaths any% of this hack!
I really appreciate if the creator "Fornaxux" and this hack fans can watch this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VBSYUEKB9EA&list=PLcHGN9wnM_Zfse6ZdQa6PiMgmJqll6dQg&index=2&t=0s
I'm the only italian SMW expert guy and this hack is very balanced and perfect in all of their features. Into the SMW hacks world there are a LOT of shitty hacks, so i'm very happy to have discover this!

Most of the levels felt original.
Great choice of soundtrack.
Not too difficult.
This one meets most of the main mario games prerequisite. (Except for the music part cuz this one's better)
I very enjoyed playing your hack. Overworld and level designs are great and very well-thought, so are the bosses.
I figured out to find all 85 exits without using savestates, as I do always. To this point, I was very pleased that you put a text box that mentioned this purpose The difficulty is well balanced, although it becomes really hard to the end, especially world 9 and the very last level. This was a really good challenge and I'm very glad that I could pass it
I just completed this rom using the original SNES hardware (loaded onto super everdrive cartridge). Some of the levels toward the end were very difficult to complete without the ability to save and load states, but that added a new dynamic to the game I have not experienced since childhood. Hands down one of the best SMW hacks out there (along with 2D land). Fantastic work!
