Super Mario World Translucent Levels

Hack of Super Mario World


The world knows that Super Mario World is a famous game, not many people know that the game actually supports unused code to enable a rarely used SNES register mode to give all levels a single translucent layer. Now, it is possible to see the game using this mode. The game is fully playable and can be completed, albeit with a few limitations. The modification was tested using original SNES hardware and it works the way it is intended without issues. The patch is for the original unmodified US version of Super Mario World and may not work with other versions of the game.

Known issues and or limitations (due to hardware limitations)

  • Levels with multiple layers, such as the yellow moving platforms in caves or castles will not be transparent (4 areas in the game).
  • The giant crushing orange hot pockets in the castles are visible, though hard to see because the background layer is given priority.
  • Certain enemies may be invisible in some cases due to background layering conflicts.
