So I'm new to rom hacking and to this website, but I'm nearly done with my world 2 (one more) and wanted to upload a few screen shots from world 1 (world 2 images soon).
Basically I wanted this hack to be both fun and a little forgiving while minimizing the jank. I've done my best to make sure most of the tricks have a little leeway and have used very few kaizo blocks. Instead nearly all the trolls are a visible sprite (ie if you hit the bubble in the image below you won't make the jump).
I have made use of the death counter and the reset system, but all of the sprites/ music/ backgrounds are vanilla SMW. I am also thinking of removing the banner at the top of the screen (blue box, coins, score) just for an overall cleaner look.
I still have one main world, the final boss, and the star world to make, but I'm hopeful I can finish within the next couple of months. Any questions/ comments are appreciated.
(I realized after making this thread that all of the pictures I grabbed are of shell jumps. I promise there are more tricks than just that though world 1 does use them somewhat frequently. World 2 less so).
