Merry Christmas!

This hack turns Super Mario Land 2, one of the best GameBoy platformers, into a fully colorized GameBoy Color game. Luigi has also been included as a playable character with his own physics.

It's been completely done in ASM so it works on real hardware. Additionally, this hack uses GBC's extra CPU, so all the slowdowns found in the original game are gone.

 Wow this looks stunning. Will definitely play this sometime and write a review for it.

I actually saw an article on Ars Technica abou this at first.

It's really impressive: The original game struggled to run full speed at points, but utilizing the boosted clock speed of the GBC's CPU eliminates all of that. The tradeoff is that this actually makes some of those parts harder since you don't get the typical FPS drop to assist in dodging shit.

Luigi's physics are... bizarre, though. Definitely taking some getting used to playing as him. Other than that, the palette choices and such are very nice.Good work.

Aye, the physics are a bit weird for Luigi... Plus, there's the bug with switching to him in certain case.

Maybe the patch would be better to be split in two - one with the coloring, and then one with the coloring + Luigi?

Amazing work :D
I was a bit bummed how For Whom the Frog Bell Tolls was put on the back burner for this, but this will more than do. Thanks for the release :)

I haven't had any luck with this rom, using Gambatte on a Raspberry Pi 3.

I had to find the direct link from reddit because I couldn't get the patched one I made to work

Seem to have issues getting the 'macro zone' to work.  When i try to zone in, the game freezes.  It makes collecting all 6 golden coins impossible.  I've tried patching multiple versions of the rom, and I've tried everything except removing the header. 
I would LOVE to give this a play through but I think I'll wait for a 1.1.

Make sure it's the (USA, Europe) rom and that you rename the file extention to .gbc

Doesn't work with official VBA and VBA GX. It just crashes when you enter the Macro Zone.

That's an emulator issue, so the patch won't be updated to make up for it.

You have to use a more accurate emulator like mGBA, Gambatte or BGB.

Ah i see.  Thanks for the quick response.  It works great on mGBA and Gamatte like you said it would. 

Great hack!! A+

Great hack, beat the game and loved it.

Now all that's left to colorize is Super Wario Land: Super Mario Land 3.

i put this on my snes classic and beat it the other day. the only bug i noticed was in the sub level a few screens over from the secret exit there was these 2 random grey squares that seemed out of place. other than that it played great ( i didnt use luigi though)

Hi, I just wrote a review but I wanted to thank you again, you made one of my dreams come true with this color hack ! It's brilliant.

Are you planning on colorizing other GB games ? Which software did you use ?
