Hello everyone !
I am hacking SMW since 2008, I am also here since 2008, but this is the second time that I take part of the C3.
I wish I could have finished my hack to release it right now and right here, but I am working on it since 2013 and I am still not done.

I decided to show you some screenshots and some special stuff I thought of.
Since I am not able to win the price for the best released hack now I will still try my best for the best screenshots :D

Here we go !


The power up is a chocolate bar !

Every Level starts with a statistic-screen which shows a part of the level, the difficulty, if there is a secret exit, a present or an artifact. A present is hidden in some levels, it is a bit harder to find and spawns a 1UP (white chocolate bar) when touched. Also there are 8 hidden Artifacts (1 in each world), it's a site quest to search'em all


A Tree Level

Still the same Level - there is this site warp effects everyone knows. The red blocks are only passable by Mario and the green blocks are On/Off Blocks

The ghost house got some cursed floor which is moving


I drew some YI Bullet Bills :P

Here you can see one of those hidden Artifacts

SM64 styled flying ship

A Temple in the Clouds

YI Platforms (I got all 4 of them :) )


Most of the gfx (FGs) are mady by myself, so is this Cave Fg of my diamond mine (The diamonds got animated sparkles but I got a bad timing of making screenshots)

Skull Kart here


Sunset Beach with SMB 2 Whales

More Beach levels

SUBMAP 6 - Underwater World

A Ship Level


One of the sewer levels

SUBMAP 8 - Bowsers Valley, The end level is a factory ;)

Thwomp Ruins

I hope you liked it and I am looking forward for comments, compliments or/and criticism.

Enjoy C3 !

Really liked what I saw here. Will look forward to the release.

Good luck!
i think i'm back

Thanks !
I will try my best to release it in April or May ^^


It's nice to see you keep your graphical style.
It looks like it's as good or even better than your other hacks!

no I'm messing but I got nothing say, I think it's pretty cool is their this going to be in the smw hack section too!


I remember playing the original back when it was first released. It was good, but has a few qualities that made it a flawed hack overall. I'm glad to say that this sequel, as most good sequels do, appears to improve upon what MSft8J did.
As part of C3, I'm reviewing the hacks that I see by judging them on four criteria.

Aesthetics - 4.5/5
I'm not a fan of how the Skull Cart level looks (perhaps the DKC/SMB graphics don't go in tangent with eachother). Apart from that, a wide array of themes are explored, whilst making sure they are somewhat realistic.

Music - N/A
I love the silence photos offer. Yes, I'll move on...

Overworld - 5/5
The submaps you've displayed for us to feast our eyes upon are very good. I love how they capture the essence of the area that they are portraying, whilst keeping them simple at the same time. All the new objects you've hand-drawn look amazing too.

Creativity - 4.5/5
I love the hidden artefact system. I figured I'd point out that it is spelt artefact, not "artifact". I like the information screen before you start each level, allowing for the player to get a nice glimpse at what they may be playing in the level they've chosen. I'm liking the non-generic plot (it's not Peach, so it's already very good in my book). There's a wide, diverse range of world themes on display here that really allow for the hack to be more enjoyable.

Overall - Great
Music was not taken into account.

I'm excited for the release of this hack; don't let me down! :O

Finally back and more active than ever!

I'm really liking the idea of finding things in levels other than Yoshi coins. I never really seen it done before. Another thing I've really like, is how each level has a similar graphical style. The overworld is also very neat. Good luck finishing this!
