Communist Mario 3 Released!

01 April 2016 12:52AM EST - Update by KP9000

ROM Hacks News - RHDN Project Page

Communist Mario 3 is a hack of Super Mario Bros. 3, which was started about a year ago. Inspiration came from setz, author of another hack here on RHDN. He made Communist Mario, a hack of SMB1. It can be reached here: http://www.romhacking.net/hacks/2365/

In this hack, players journey as Comrade Mario in a quest to extinguish capitalism that is threatening Mother Russia and the USSR. The major gameplay change is that avoiding coins is key, since they hurt Comrade Mario. All the levels have received some form of facelift, but remain mostly unchanged as far as layout goes.

Another major change is the technical modifications that allowed for a deeper implementation of the theme and style. The original ROM had 4 frames of animation. This hack uses 16 frames of animation, all animating in the same amount of time as the original 4!

Each world map has also received some change: they all have their own graphics page! This allows for much more flexibility in designing a rich, visual environment than you could with the original setup.

A few more minor things have been done to improve and speed up the flow of the game: No game overs, faster text type speed, very little “disabled controls” time (in mushroom houses), and no goal cards- the level just ends.
