Description: Welcome to Kaizo Forest(Not final name), a new game by Brick.

This is a demo of an upcoming kaizo hack designed to keep you on your toes.

This hack includes:
Nice overworld :)
Nice Levels :)
Nice Dolphins :)
Not so nice difficulty :(

Tested on Snes9x and ZSNES.
Level Design was pretty decent overall but there were a lot of issues that need to be fixed.

1. Dying more than 5 times on the intro screen makes you game over after every attempt, then even if you beat the intro screen it takes you back to the title screen. Easy fix would be infinite lives.

2. Intro screen jump off the goomba both ways was pretty annoying (not to mention having to wait for the goomba to wake up... add in the game over screen and I was spending half of my time waiting for things to happen.) This could be avoided by making sure you test the hack without savestates or get some testers.

3.Level 1 was designed fairly well it had some good tricks. It did have a lot of blind jumps which you should try to limit. The ending is a pretty massive difficulty spike trying to hit the hidden block.

4.Start-select should be disabled to prevent people from bringing yoshi/items out of levels.

5.You give the yoshi 6 items to eat (not sure if mistake)

My suggestions moving forward would be to make sure to test without savestates from the beginning of levels and to see if you can find someone to help with testing. Most of these issues could have been found with proper testing.
