Exactly what it says on the tin. Despite the title and opening message, this is a regular hack. A regular hack with some creative materials, I might add. Made using the 2017 KLDC base ROM as a seed file.
The levels in this were originally part of a larger regular hack (the one I showcased during one of the previous C3's) but I decided to split it up (specifically levels that made use of any custom blocks or sprites would be for this one). The one where the bosses all rage-quit would be in the other one as well as be more vanilla, but IDK when I'd feel like working on that one.
This mod is short but also kinda difficult.
I finished this hack all the way and what can I say? It's definitely a masterpiece.
The creativity is also over the top and I recognize some of the levels from previous hacks of yours. Some levels were actually shorter than usual, such as the lakitu level. A few firebars were kinda hard and ruthless to dodge, especially considering that the first level that introduces them is a bit halfway through the hack.
