It's nice to see this hack finally release!
As a tester since the very beginning, i've seen this hack grow a lot!
From a few simple level ideas, going to a full fledged hack with such high quality sprites and level design, it was a joy to be part of this whole journey!
It features a great middle ground between a difficult Standard hack and a moderately easy kaizo, which just strikes a great balance that allows it to be enjoyable for seasoned kaizo players, while also being feasible for Standard players to enjoy.
This hack definitely has some great design, you're able to bring out a lot of the potential from your own sprites in super clever and original setups, while also retaining some of the action platforming seen in Of Jumps and Platforms.
It's hard to say what is the highlight of this hack, since everything about it is really good. But, if i had to say, the bosses are indeed something else!
All of them are super unique in the way they're designed, their attack patterns and the way to approach them! It really serves as the cherry on top for this great hack!
Modesty aside, i'm really glad i was able to help shape these boss fights in reaching their full glory!
It's really a joy to replay them all, and i don't hold back in saying the last boss is probably the most fun boss i've ever played in a SMW hack! The way it
stays super active, using a plethora of different movements and attacks, keeping us in our toes throughout the entire fight
acts so quickly it's almost like it predicts our movement
really make it one of the most enjoyable challenges i've had with a boss fight! It's a fight that constantly keeps us on the move and paying attention to what his next move will be!
And that's not to say the other bosses fall short, they're also really well crafted and fun to play, having a great variety of attacks and managing to be challenging, fun and varied. It's just that the last boss goes above and beyond lol
(I also still keep the unnerfed versions around xD)
Overall this is a great hack that i can't recommend enough. It's a great example of how a simple concept can make for an amazing result!
