If you are on discord you probably know I've been working on this hack for a while, might as well post a thread on smwc right?
The origin of this hack is kind of weird: I'm usually not the biggest vanilla fan, my shtick with kaizo up until this point was coding interesting ASM stuff and making a level with them.
The streamer Jikurein hosted a romhack contest in which you had to make three kaizo levels and an overworld using only vanilla assets. Jiku originally made the choice of prohibiting chocolate for the sake of accessibility, but it posed an interesting limit on me. Needless to say I had so much fun that I've decided to continue this creative excercise.
The levels in this hack are inspired my numerous VLDC entries over the years, some of the inspirations are more obvious than others. I've also been trying to make good looking tilesets using only the original assets (again, a la vldc).
My current objective is to make 10 levels for this hack, here is a playlist with all the completed, albeit untested, stages so far:
UPDATE: Here's a beta (levels are untested)
I would greatly appreciate testing and feedback
I suck at ASM and AMK
