Thanks guys!

The game plays out a bit like an adventure game, similar to Metroid. As you gain items you use them to gain access to new areas. While I prefer players to figure things out on their own, I have constructed two strat guides to help you out.

The first is a general walkthrough. The second is a guide to the secrets of Massimo (which are many). There are spoilers in the second guide so you may not want to look at that until you have finished.

Secrets of Massimo HERE

Also before anyone bring it up, the last level is intentionally long. You could either go through it the intended way (an epic trek into the depths of hell to see how far you can get), or just savestate between each stage transition.

Yes, the empty, natural landscape and ambience is really nice.
Some levels have no music at all, which is great.
The cryptic messages of the dead are all interesting, albeit confusing.
It almost feels as if you are the last living human on earth, an illeterate, scrawny, hopeless hobo. I hope he succeeds in whatever he's trying to do.
But, I seriously have no idea how to pass 'Forest Entrance' or 'Entry to Your End".

So did anyone get a chance to find and playthrough MassiBits and Massi8Bit? I'm curious as to what everyone's thoughts were for those segments and the game in general.
I found them(I also found Massibits w/out a walkthrough guide ^^).
I got stuck on one or the other in a trap where you couldn't die(no time limit), and I had no backup savestates, and stopped there D:

Hmm, really?

Could you describe where you were at or provide a screen grab?
Hello everyone! Long time, no see.

I noticed that the Massimo file has been missing for quite some time and needed to rectify that. I recently uploaded the hack to for a more permanent access. Now those who never got a chance to play the game due to missing files can experience the shallow adventures of Massimo!

Now unlike the previous .zips this one doesn't have the wallpapers or the sweeping Massimo theme included. It does however contain a quickie strat guide for lost adventurers and also the bonus game Mario's Mini Adventure.

Also for those who enjoyed Massimo I have been working on a spiritual successor to it. It's not a mod, but the game has a very similar vibe and flow. I'll post some stuff on this in the near future if people are interested. :)
This hack have my same name!:D I will download it right now, it seem pretty interesting... One day maybe I will comment it.
I'm interested indeed.

Also, I played the hack before, but I hated it. Still, that was years ago. I think it was because of it being rough around the edges, as well as me not really being down with the, I suppose, "artistic" atmosphere. I will give it another shot, because it's something very, very unique in the romhacking world.
I'll put something together pretty soon to show my new game. I started working on it since I finished Massimo 2 years ago and have been trying to make the game that I wanted to make out of Massimo. I have enough done to feel comfortable showing it.

I also played Massimo fairly recently for the first time in almost two years. It was a very interesting experience to play my own game after not seeing it for so long. I did shake my head at some areas of the game I could've done a lot better, I even forgot where I put all the items!

As far as "artistic" atmosphere? Eh, that's what I like. I enjoy making visually interesting levels. I feel a thick atmosphere helps draw the player into the world more. From the recent replay I do think I kind of overdid it with the silent areas. Also I was developing the levels one after another so if you only played the early levels then you might like my later stuff from Yg on where I started to better grasp what I could do with Lunar Magic (especially when you get to the hidden game MassiBits).
I can't wait to see what you release next.
Massimo is favourite hack. It's so different and pretty creepy ;__;
I'll play your game more when you learn what mid points are, there is even this nifty patch that lets you use multiple in the same level!

Your layout has been removed.
Yeah I made this game a little over 2 years ago I think before the midpoint patch came out. Had I had it to work with then I would've used it. Originally I wanted the game to be one seemless world but due to my limitations at the time I eventually broke it up into large level chunks and let the play decide if they want to use save states as checkpoints or not.

Unfortunately I haven't touched this or Lunar Magic since then so I've forgotten a lot of stuff. If I can find time away from life and working on my current game I'll look into reworking Massimo to fix some of the problems people have been having and maybe make it open world again.
I've recently started again to record Youtube videos about SMWC hacks in moderation lately, and yours is the first I tried out. (Ep148)

To my surprise, I absolutely hated it. I'm sorry, I just... can't describe it anymore.

Reading this topic now, I'm actually glad to see this was made over 2 years ago, so it may explain ALOT of problems I saw with it.

On a side note, I also played your other hack which was included in the ZIP file. Unfortunately, I didn't like it either.
This Hack is cool but really strange.


My Youtube Channel:
Given how a) this thread has been dead for almost four months and b) the hack creator has gone inactive, was it really necessary to bump this thread just to make that rather pointless statement?

Hint: no.
