An ode to cement

Super Mario WorldFull Hack ReleaseScreenshots

Not many of you may realize it, but #lm{bgbank} is objectively the best block in SMW. Its aesthetic design is simple, yet expressive and effective. Functionally, he will never let you down: you can bonk on it how many you want, but he'll always be solid (don't listen to those heretics who say you can clip through it!). Even when the whole world is falling down, he'll always be there for you in its grey majestity. Why use fancy looking ground, hipster half-buried blocks, eye-pleasing palettes when #lm{bgbank} exists?

This is why I decided to make an entire hack dedicated to #lm{bgbank}, to pay an homage to it. The project started small but soon enough the amount of levels grew big, with the final version even having 96 exits! The main focus is on aesthetics, so don't expect the level design to be that great. I also got Koji Kondo to compose and port an entirely original soundtrack (the guy still uses AM4, can you believe it?).

But anyway, here's some screenshots:

You can download the bps patch here. I hope you have fun :)
does everything in there act as 130

if not you dont get my like
kevin can you explain what possessed you to create this?

it's beautiful.
Wow, it really is all just cement blocks. It looks like some sort of cement-induced fever dream, or something along the lines of that. I can at least appreciate the motive behind this hack though, very inspiring that you were able to make a homage of such caliber, and even get Koji Kondo's help on it!
What is a Lunar Magic, and can I eat it?
i always wanted to play as cement mario, but nintendo was too cowardly to follow up on my hate mail. KevinM does what nintendon't!
Alright, make a version of this but with Munchers. SMW Central would be closed for good if you did that.

my god it's all cement blocks

and i like it
I knew the VLDC12 leak was fake when I didn't see this in 1st place
I will give 10/10 for pure level design.
And if you press B, you jump. Amazing!
Exclusive content and nostalgia!
Everyone go home, we have a winner that we'll have no hope of topping. It's pretty much cemented itself as the grand champion of anything done for C3.

Hey check it out I made a level that got 104th place (wow he sucks!).
And who's gonna fund my new pair of E Y E S now!

There's just something so wrong about it all and it kind of hurts my eyes at the same time.

I love it! ^.=.^

We were at C3
Everybody had / matching Yoshi
Went to this thread / for a treat
And there we saw concrete
But it wasn't concrete
It was the rock ROM hack

Other Submissions of mine!
Wow, Kevin, you're sure a workaholic! Not only moderating but also porting a lot of songs and *takes breath* making joke hacks?! Respect!

BTW, I guess you didn't touch objects or sprites in the levels at all. Changing all the graphics into cement blocks doesn't count as designing levels.
I have a Discord server as well! (by joining, you agree to the rules)
Basically, I believe in peace and bashing two bricks together.

Finally, after years of being in the shadow of Mario, Cement Block gets his chance to shine. #smrpg{:D}

When is Cement Block going to be in Smash, Sakurai?

Oh, I guess this hack rocks lmao
Just some Ys fan lol
Thanks for the kind words, it's nice to see all my efforts paid off!

Also, the more savvy guys may notice there's actually one tile in the GFX files that it wasn't replaced with #lm{bgbank}, can you guess which is it?
