SMB3 (Definitive Edition)

Hack of Super Mario Bros. 3

Description:

UPDATE: The Straight Fireball ASM had to be omitted because of a glitch with Hammer Mario doing the same thing with his hammers. Whoops.

This hack combines SMB3 patches into one hack that basically improves Super Mario Bros. 3 as a whole.

I do not claim any credit for the actual content - only for the hard work of making it all work together.

Features:

1. Ability to save the game.

2. Title Screen Music (special thanks to Koopa on the SMB3 Prime server for giving me the code).

3. Item Slot from Super Mario World

4. Blocks, Sprites, etc in levels now have 16 frames of animation.

5. The Graphics for the Big World levels have been properly up-scaled.

6. Hammer, Boomerang, and Fire Bros. now have different sprites to tell them apart.

7. The Spiny shell bug is now fixed

8. Treasure chests in Toad Houses now look better.

9. Luigi’s color palette is now darker like on the map screen in game and on the title screen.

10. The spade house map screen graphics is now animated up to 4 frames.

A Great Start in the Right Direction!

Reviewed By: beinor on 13 May 2020

This hack has a good direction behind it, and a good developer. I hope they continue to pursue what a “definitive edition” ought to look like, as they certainly have a vision for it! Also not a fan of the straight-shot fireball mechanic, but that’s already been stated in other reviews, albeit in much harsher tones. (hey, how about some of you go and make a hack! lol)
