That aside, the ROM hack looks pretty great. An alternate download without the bloat of the PDF would be nice though,
I agree! I was actually planning on just having the patch on sites like this and leaving the extraneous stuff elsewhere for those who want more. I made the image guide in case someone wanted to replay a specific level and didn't know where to find it in the level select.
I updated the game due to a freezing bug that happens on one level depending on which enemy becomes the hole. The new 1.01 patch shouldn't include the extra fluff.
Also, I am in the process of developing a single player version due to popular demand, but the levels aren't really tailored well to the single player experience. There's a "beta" patch out already at the subreddit, but I'd like to change the requirements for gold/silver/bronze medals to give it proper balance.
