I have been working on this hack since the summer, put quite a few months into it on and off. I am probably going to move on to a new project now, but anyone that is interested in checking it out I will give a link to my website putting it out. I would like some play testers to give me some feedback on it, so I can make notes to make any necessary modifications once I revisit the project in the future. Any feedback is good, and if anyone would like to add their own elements or collaborate then that would be interesting too. https://snakerandsons.wordpress.com/mario-blitzkrieg-rom-hack/
Looking forward to seeing some feedback!
