After a long time out of smw hacking, I present you a brand new kaizo: light hack, as hard as the new era kaizo hacks (Grand Poo World, Invictus, etc). Everything on this hack can be done without slowdown, but doing without savestates will be a grandmaster challenge. Here are some screenshots (as the hack progresses, I'll be posting new things).

NOTES: Some levels were excluded from the original hack but they actually still exist inside the game file, in case you're curious about the first screenshot in this post.



Also, the hack will be featuring custom bosses, as well as custom music BUT some levels will be using the original smw songs, as a tribute to the original Kaizo Mario hacks (such as Heaven and Ultra Star levels, they aren't the same without the piano music!!!), cool puzzles and a minimum amount of underwater levels.
See ya!
The hack looks pretty nice visually so far! That third screenshot looks like it might have a glitched on/off block, though. Make sure you load the proper sprite graphics for that block's hit animation.

One thing also I feel like I should say, be careful that you don't just imitate other hacks when designing your levels; put something into them to make them feel unique, or else your hack will end up forgettable. It's hard to comment accurately with only screenshots and no video, but at least from the screenshots very little really stands out right now.

Of course, that may not be the case with the full levels, but still, something you might want to be careful about while the hack is still in its earlier design stages. Don't be afraid to return back to previous levels and touch them up later if you need to.
Thanks for your feedback!

Yes, I'm pretty aware of this, thanks for the advise! The screenshots can't show much things right now, but I'll be posting some videos soon. There will be levels with gimmicks and levels without them, most likely alternating.
This is a beautiful hack. I don't know what's going on in some of the screenshots since admittedly nothing much stands out, but I commend you for your clever level design. Are you planning to release a demo soon or hire playtesters?

Yes, I'll release a demo with 7~8 levels for testing, since I want to cut off every obvious breaks or bugs on the hack.
First castle: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zxJMYbuiOeI
This is one of the most basic levels of the hack, doesn't show any gimmicks at all.

WARNING! The video shows a kaizo trap at the last door before the boss, so if you don't wanna any spoilers, do not watch!!]
Also, this boss is really really RNG, so it can be easily doable or insanely hard haha.
After being off from the smw hacking for almost a entire year (due to college works) I decided to return and try to finish this hack. I'm glad to announce that it's almost done, so I brought some recent pics :D

These new overworld pics were inspired by Kaizo Mario 3 and Grand Poo World 2 as well.

Cavern world


First level's map


Overworld


Wasteland


Last World


A puzzle level where light's out


Basic snow level with creating/eating blocks gimmicks.


WIP level with low gravity gimmick


That's all for today! I was considering to release a demo, but since there aren't too much levels, I decided to just release the full hack soon.
Looks really cool! I thought there were a lot of interesting ideas in the castle level you posted a video of, I'll be sure to be on the lookout for more!

Thanks! I guess I'll finish the hack in less than a month (hopefully)

And, another video. This level was done a long time ago, but I decided to change somethings to make it harder, since it's one the last stages.
Far Beyond Heaven
And finally, the release!! I worked "hard" in the last month to finish this hack, and I'm glad to say that I did it! Of course this is the first version, and may have modifications if someone finds out any bug.

REMOVED - Fixing major errors etc, getting some test before I upload a nice version.
A friendly reminder that you can use hack testing subforum so as more people can see your hack.
I have a Discord server as well!
