The hack contains six images which try oh so very hard to be scary. The text document further exposes the hack's nature as a crappypasta.
The title screen
is endless running in a cave. "SUPER" is removed from the title. The menu text is ruined by the background palette.
The all-caps intro
made me laugh. It's so bright and sunny and it's talking about hell. Well, if this is hell, happy I arrived here! I think I'm going to take a vacation...
sounds like the story of the staff team's sex lives. The background palette has some errors, because there are boxes in the overlapping areas of the hills. It also seems unnatural to have the lightest hills appear the furthest out rather than the closest in. The brick stove fire is kind of just sitting there. The absence of Yoshi's House coupled with the message "I do not want to support you" is pretty strong, actually... not in the creepy sense, but in the middle-finger-to-Mario sense.
is a long, plain cave level. There's some "walkthrough" dirt sticking out of the ground that you can't move through. The message box is too Engrish to make sense of.
Yellow Switch Palace
is unedited apart from the message box. You know, I'm waiting for the day there's a creepy hack that uses the P-switch to make everything all fucked up and gorey, but creepypasta hacks don't have a good track record of technicality or
sums up my feelings so far about the hack. This level's palette is cold like death. (Surprise.) This is basically Yoshi's Island 2 without any sprites. Yoshi actually does 'support' you after all, but not because he wants to.
It starts as a Yoshi's Island 3 edit but then becomes a long flat area of arches, yellow ! blocks, and bridges over lava. The clouds don't agree with the background. Design is uneventful. The yellow switch, as implied earlier, is required to beat this level.
is Yoshi's Island 4 with no sprites and a changed palette.
#1 Final Punishment
has me go through a bunch of doors until I reach and kill Morton. I'm not entirely sure what the cutscene text is supposed to mean.
Instead of going up like the path north of the castle would lead you to believe, you go left on this otherwise unchanged overworld.
ends with DESTINATION and an arrow pointing down a pipe. You go down and you land on cement blocks and you kill yourself. It's like a double death.
I didn't understand this hack... well, I did understand it enough to know that it is a M A R I O clone, and a very bad one at that. This hack has no new gameplay content, which is my primary reason for removing it on the spot. Second, it's hard to understand, so it doesn't really accomplish being scary. What it did accomplish though, is me wanting to see more of Yoshi being a dick towards Mario. I found that funny. I think creepypastas should not give themselves away before the hack even begins. Like, a creepypasta is supposed to trigger an emotion of fear, or at the very least, disturb the hell out of you.
The Adventure was disturbing by the time I finished, but the way it was presented, it held the face of complete innocence. I think that's the best approach to hacks that are supposed to trigger strong emotions because you don't expect it at all. Even though it's set for removal, I strongly recommend grabbing the hack from the thread and looking at its presentation. You don't have to get as technical with the ASM, but study the flow of the hack and notice the obscurity of the shocking parts.
Just look above you...
If it's something that can be stopped, then just try to stop it!
