Tip: Switch palace switches normally disappear if you replay the level. However, if you insert them as direct Map16 and use the hex-edit at $00EEB2 in the ROM map, you can replay the level without a problem.
You must be thinking right now, "How could he find time to make another hack when all he does is post on the Forums?" Well, I don't know, actually. I just did.
This hack is a continuation of Iggy's Island (mine, not the other guy's) and features longer, and slightly harder levels. It also has proper paths on the OW.
This is just another short hack, nothin' too special.
Oh, and before you people start giving this hack bad reviews, no, there aren't credits after the boss. If that's all you want to review about, than you can go review someone else's hack. One that does have credits.
Morton, after hearing of his brother, Iggy's, death, decided to come to the island and terrorize it. He, with his battleship, tore the island into three pieces. The Yoshi Brigade (the defenders of the island) managed to sink his ship, but it sank on top of a rock and is still slightly above water level. Morton sent foot troops to capture all the Yoshi's, so now it's up to Mario to stop Morton!
Once again, I hope I have the right screenshots...
Design-wise isn't totally bad. Some sections were actually interesting, but most of the hack is kind of plain and boring. My main complain is the lenght, this hack is easy beatable in 10 minutes, since there aren't many levels, plus the levels in it are kind of short. The maze was probably the most annoying level: even if simple, you just have to go forward, hoping you're nailing the correct sequence of pipes. Overall, it's not a very fun hack. Not awful, but not good either.
Aesthetic-wise, nothing much changed from the vanilla SMW. Some cutoff is present here and there, as well as a few silly palettes (the gray lava in the forest level and the spikes in Morton's ship). Here too, not awfully bad, but it could've been much better, in particular with the decoration, since lots of levels feel empty due to the lack of it.
- A pipe in "The Maze" makes you die instantly;
- You can bring Yoshi in Morton's arena. It causes pretty nice graphic glitches I must say.
Overall, poor and short. Maybe not worth downloading if you're wanting to play a good hack. If you want to spend 10 minutes only though...
