|Description:||Swedish is a language spoken in Sweden, north Europe|
This rom will teach you the basics of the language
-The secret ghost house is not changed and the 3 last levels of the demo are only change somewhat but you get an idea what this hack is trying to do
This demo goes as far as to the second castle
What is changed in this version 1.1?
-The door that goes to GAME ROOM works as before but the GAME ROOM level now has 3 games in them that are 100% done
More games might be added in future versions
-Between number 4 and 5 more munchers have been added so you can not pass with the feather
-The first part of the level before you enter the pipe has been changed
-The second part of the level after you exit the pipe has had the roof removed and more blocks and enemies added
-At the end of the level it has a wall of blocks instead of the empty space followed by coins reading <-- NOPE (SMILEY FACE)
-Vit now has white under it and not light blue ice blocks
-Blå now has water under it
-The door to BLÅ now goes to the level BLÅ and not to level 0 as before
-In the level SVART coins now show where to land at the end

DAT DESCIPTION o.O
First off, before I forget again, what's up with theses screenshots. Any emulator has a build in screenshot function. Usually you can set the hotkey somewhere. Heck, even if you used normal computer screenshots and cut the image with paint it would be better. Next time, please submit propper screenshots.
So, with that out of the was, let's move to the hack.
Honestly. It fails. For one, it seems to forget the objective of trying to teach you swedish after about 4 levels. The only level that does a somewhat decent job at it is the first one, which teaches you numbers. While I still have no idea who they are ponounced, I could at least learn to write them.
The color level just leaves me guessing which color it actually means. I'll admit that the doors taking me to a level which is build in mostly that one color is a neat idea though.
Lastly, the level teaching me the additional letters. Doesn't tell me how they are pronounced. If I take that on to german, it's like saying "We have 4 additional letters: Ä, Ü, Ö, ß good luck figuring out how to pronounce them". And let's not even think about how fucked you are if you do this with japanese.
Lastly, I don't know how strict swedish people are about it, but this IS NOT hoe the swedish flag looks. (cross should be more to the left). Again, I don't know how strict people are about it but to me it's comparable with a sine being drawn with half circles.
The levels themself are not really good either. You've got cutoff all over the place. Mostly caused by the freaken tons of stacked/floating munchers but there are other instances too.
The levels suffer from general unfairness too. Like the colors level. I spend like half an hour in there, just trying to find a way out. Every door taking me to a level with a stupid long running passage and at the end of it, is a door that takes me back to the beginning of the level => start over again... EVERY TIME, until I finally found the one door which had an exit to it.
The way you build your levels isn't really good either. Long empty hallways, tons of enemies just trown at me and fake difficulty by having munchers all over the place. The later levels even become blatand edits of the original SMW.
My advice: Take a look at some of the accepted hacks with higher rating or watch some LPs on Youtube to get a feeling of what a decent hack should look like. If you want to stick with the idea of a "learn swedish" hack (and honestly, I think you shouldn't) then trash this ROM and start anew.
If the next time this is submitted the hack is still in this state (read: a pain to play) I'll Blacklist it.
Difficulty: Oscillating between "Lol easy :D" and "Fuck You D:"
