How did I forget about that rain level it looks so good

this hack is real pretty, though.
This hack is aggressively
pretty. Like, the backgrounds are a stage hazard because you're too distracted taking in the pallets and the subtle HDMA work.
I truly believe that even if this hack ended up being mediocre in the gameplay department (which I totally don't think it will) it would still stand as a case study in aesthetics - I'm most pleased you've stuck with it for so long, and encourage you to keep sticking with it as long as it takes!

That said, out of all of the wonderful designs that you've made for this, how did you end up with just a regular-ass seagull for an enemy? Yeah they're vicious and all, but everything else is so fantastical.
Interesting how a lot of people single out the seagulls!
I think a bird's trajectory (or something) makes for a pretty nice game mechanic with no need for less realistic behavior. They don't feel that out of place to me in a world of slugs, seahorses and corals - they only thing they're lacking maybe is the cartoony eyes?
Now that you mention it, it might just be the eyes indeed. Maybe meet us halfway and leave the eyes alone but give the seagulls top hats or something.
