Hey everyone, time for a 2-year bump!
I've been offline for a very long time, but I'm back, and I've resumed work on this project.
I've found that there are now at least 2 hacks bearing the name 'Kaizo Mario Bros. 2' or something similar. Because of this, I am changing the name to 'Super Mario Bros 2 - Kaizo College'.
As for progress, I am nearly done with world 2, and I have done quite a few new things with the game, like revamping the character properties -- more on that later.
Anyway, hopefully this can surface soon, as I sure don't want to be beat to the punch!
