Colorful in Many Ways

Reviewed By: Mother Kojiro on 01 Mar 2019

I feel like this hack was made just for me, with its theme being centered around color. Each world has its own central color, and most of its palettes revolve around that. It’s all done in a way that makes it feel more natural, though, so it’s very well implemented. Really, the mastery of color usage here is pretty consistent; my favorite was World 2, where everything is pink! Sprites aren’t altered in any way, and that’s fine; if nothing else, it gives the game a consistent aesthetic. All text was changed, and is pretty humorous, especially the bonus games.

The level design is often clever both in the stages and on the overworld map. Stages often make you think about what you’re doing without really putting you through the ringer. Yes, there are a couple of bombs here and there, but for a full 8-world hack, that’s both understandable and forgivable. It also had some neat aesthetic moments just because of how things were put together; my favorite example of this is World 4-3, which has you swim down into a big block and into a pipe, putting you into a cozy little shelter. If you like color, or are just looking for a solid hack that isn’t going to put you through agony, give this a try!
