I thought I nuked that one myself, Techokami. D: ...also, do my removal log posts sound like yours in any way?

This was a VERY good hack at first! But later on, you started getting very..umm..obvious errors on the overworld. Worse yet, your levels began getting unfair.
"I, Wendy O. Koopa, claim this presents screen to be MINE, ALL MINE!! GYAH HA HA HA!!!"
Why did you let Wendy take over your presents screen? (Fun fact: Seeing that makes me giggle. XD)
Holes in the ground on the bottom ledges. Can you see them? I can. Also, your intro message is worded badly... For starters, why is it a test of knowledge if it's a puzzle? Puzzles aren't about knowledge, IMO.
But still... It should be something more like this:
"Welcome to Mario's Test of Knowledge! Is it easy? Is it difficult? There's only one way to find out!"
NOTE: You can replace "difficult" with "hard" to save space. What else will save space? Removing those dashes. You can make the message bigger that way.
Please lower the goal post and cover it with the ledge- it looks bad with those bad bush tiles there. D:
Bad sprite memory issues. Try to change the sprite memory setting to see if it works then, or just use the No Sprite Tile Limits patch that SOMEONE thinks is the answer to EVERYTHING, even if you wanna stay true to the original game.
Note Blocks are incompatible with Castle tilesets. You can either:
A: Remap the bounce sprite to where it won't clash
B: Use ExGFX to replace what's there with the bounce sprite.
This event cuts off the rock.
Now we're getting into Unfair Land. This may be a puzzle hack, but under NO circumstances should you EVER
Before I get into more pics, let me say this: You have very little time for each level. On most, this is no problem. On the level I enter next, it IS. You'll find out why soon.
You're supposed to kick this shell and jump on it as it zooms across this pit of munchers. It's not that easy, and it's really annoying. >_<
To quote Kyoseron:
"Big Yoshi, meet Little Yoshi. BECOME Little Yoshi! It is your destiny!"
Yoshi's head glitches when you meet either a baby Yoshi or a vertical Podoboo. The former is why you only get Baby Yoshis from Yoshi Eggs that become 1-ups if you already have a big Yoshi, and the latter could be why Yoshi's not allowed in Castles. (Though, the correct answer for the latter in terms of story would probably be that Yoshi is a coward, which would explain Ghost House, but that's beside the point.
) So, again: Do not allow a Baby Yoshi to appear when a Big Yoshi can be gained.
Using that Yoshi, you need to get back with the Key. But what are you supposed to do? Jumping won't work, and Yoshi's valuable. You gotta ditch the poor guy. I see that too much in this hack. It breaks my heart. ;-;
IS IT GROUND, OR BOTTOMLESS PIT? I CANNOT TELL. [/Techokami]
To be honest, walking over to the right a little more throws you into PITLAND. AKA death. Left might be the same thing...
Time your jump down there right to stop the shell, or else you die. :<
I forgot to take a pic of what comes next- ANOTHER STUPID "JUMP-ON-MOVING-SHELL-OVER-MUNCHER-PIT" SECTION! -_- That's honestly unfair. In fact, speaking of unfair, the first section is stupid. P-Switch will NOT help you get through the level. In fact, if you try to get it, you will most likely run out of time in the second section. Instead, just leave only the Springboard over there and use THAT to get to the door at the start. It's how I do it. :< Springboard saves more time, anyways.
What is this? EGG! D: Yoshi Eggs (and Yoshi himself) ARE NOT COMPATIBLE WITH THE CASTLE SPRITE SET. Use ExGFX to allow them to look right.
See? Yoshi is incompatible.
Again with the Note-Block-can't-be-used-with-castle-sprites issue?
WORST. PUZZLE. EVER.
There's two ways to beat this:
1: Jump the exact instant you hit the P-Switch so you jump off it after triggering it, instead of falling.
2: Throw Key onto Munchers, throw P-Switch onto Key and hit it, grab Key, jump immediately when you grab it.
This is the epitome of unfair. This requires PERFECT TIMING to get by. I'm appalled you did this. If you fall, all you get is a big fat DEATH. So.... Why? Why did you think this was a good puzzle?
Therefore, nuked. Please try again when you have fixed the above.
