Tip: If you edit Level 0, make sure you also edit Level 100. Both of them are used for the bonus game depending on the level you're in.

Welcome! Thanks for stopping by! This hack is inspired by Super Mario Odyssey: Balloon World, and takes the original levels and turns them into small puzzles and/or speedrun challenges.
Every level has a hidden balloon, and you only have a short amount of time to find it! Luckily, coins will increase your time limit, and you're guided by a handy distance meter towards the balloon.

You can download the hack here

This is a more polished version of the hack from a few years back, with some quality of life improvements, such as:
- The distance meter is now displayed above Mario's head instead of in the upper right corner.
- You can reset every level by pressing L + R
- Some of the more tedious or boring balloons have been moved to better locations.
- Other small tweaks, such as increased time limits for some (more puzzle-oriented) levels.

Enjoy, and have a nice C3!
This is a really interesting concept and looks to provide a very creative way of playing the original levels.

I've cleared W1 so far, and it was quite fun. At first, I wasn't sure how this gimmick would play out, but I can already see the interesting ways it's being used. Gonna do all 96 exits to see what other challenges you've come up with.
oh this is cute - and i thought it sounded familiar! i'm excited to give it a try when i've got time, but i love these ideas of creative takes on the original SMW.

I was able to play this before release and it was such a blast to play. Set aside any notions that this is purely a rompy, casual experience. Instead, the balloons are placed so cleverly that each level unfolds into its own unique and creative, highly rewarding challenge. Whether it's puzzles, speedrun strats, on-the-fly parsing of obstacles, or clever takes on vanilla elements, each level manages to both play homage to the original level, while providing a wonderful twist on it. Would highly recommend this to fans of the original game and fans of SMW hacks alike. Great work!
Super Mario Odyssey's Balloon World was a fun experience for me, so the concept thrown into Super Mario World sounds very interesting! Looking at the screenshots, it seems that some balloon placements will prove to be quite the challenge to get to. I'll be sure to try this out once I get the chance!

What is a Lunar Magic, and can I eat it?
This is a great concept that is able to make the original SMW feel fresh again. I was a big fan of Luigi's Balloon World from SMO, so I'm excited to try this out! This looks really fun; great work!
Putting SMO's Balloon World feature in SMW sounds like a completely new idea! Can't wait to try out by myself!
Reporting for you for this year’s E3. Catch it on 6:00 PM PHT.

I love experimental hacks, this idea is super unique.

Хуй войне!

At 23 exits right now. Having tons of fun with this! I'm amazed by how much depth and intricacy you've managed to bring out of the original game by just making a few simple changes to the rules. Of the levels I've beaten so far, I loved Donut Secret 1, Vanilla Dome 1, and Funky the most.
