Almost 2 years ago I submitted my first hack to SMW Central. The hack was called Shell's Retriever and it was supposed to be a beginner-friendly item abuse kaizo hack. I didn't put that much effort and thought into it and the making process was kinda rushed (It didn't even had playtesters) but it turned out to be a huge success, with almost 3 thousand downloads including all versions. Almost every kaizo streamer I follow played it and people really seemed to like it, so I decided to finally start making a sequel.
For this hack I am trying to be as creative as I can and give every level a unique feel. The levels are short, just like Shell's Retriever (maybe a little bit longer) with fun and fluid shell tricks that connect from start to finish. The difficulty is higher than Shell's Retriever, but if you have beaten that hack, this one shouldn't be too bad. Here are some screenshots
(This level uses the "Sprites are always on water" UberASM)
(This level uses the Screen Wrap UberASM)
This hack also has a classic pure platforming kaizo level. This one is quite a bit harder than the one in Shell's Retriever
Shell's Retriever had 8 levels, I think I'm gonna make at least 10 for this one. I already have 7 levels finished, so I hope I'll be done with this by the end of the month.
In case you're wondering about where I got the name of these hacks take a look at this
. It's name of a weapon from a Zombies map called "Mob of the Dead" from the game Call of Duty: Black Ops 2
