SMA2 - Super Mario World Color Restoration

Hack of Super Mario World: Super Mario Advance 2

Description:

A lot of GBA games were released with brighter colors to accommodate the original GBA’s dim screen. This always bothered me, so I thought I’d take matters into my own hands and remedy this. All colors were taken directly from the SNES ROM.

ROM / ISO Information:

  • 0297 - Super Mario World - Super Mario Advance 2 (U)(Mode7).gba

You thought the GBA port of SMW was too bright? Try playing it on an GBA SP AGS 001 like I did back in the day! Thankfully, this simple yet neat path restores the game to its former glory. Granted, the GBA version has its fair share of flaws, but thanks to this hack, this is pretty much the best way to play the game right now. Now go rescue Peach and grab all those Dragon Coins!
