Adds Something Truly Unique

Reviewed By: beinor on 15 Jul 2018

This gameplay mod adds a very interesting aspect to the SMB3 game, and increases possibilities for already-made hacks as well.

I’ve found interesting application where there might already be an array of coins over a gap, and if you jump over them and shoot a fireball, it creates a block platform which you can quickly jump from while still mid-gap. Very satisfying powerup trick to do, and not without value.

Also, this can be a saving grace for a section where you’re fighting a p-switch timer. If you were diligent to keep the fireball powerup, then you can simply blast those bricks into coins and keep moving through the level.

Very useful modification.

I would personally love to see one like this which simply breaks the bricks also. Perhaps it is a relatively simple ASM difference between toggling the coin-brick and brick-broken brick. I don’t know personally.
