Decent... for 2005

Reviewed By: Egadd on 30 Sep 2012

I’m very sorry, but this hack doesn’t live up to normal SMW hacking standards. I am a user of Snes9x, and this hack crashes after the 2nd level, all while sending the music through a wood chipper. 9x users should download ZSNES if they want to properly play this game. This is really unacceptable, seeing that Addmusic 4.05 and AddmusicM are both great choices that make sure that the music is not broken, and they have been used for years by this point.

The gameplay fares no better, with the majority of it being flat and uninviting. While the creator uses slopes, they tend to be for major things and remain untouched for the little areas. Sprite placement seems contrived, clearly the creator slapped down several sprites and called it a day.

The graphical glitches were there, though they tended to be minor. The most major of these was Yoshi, who spit Bullet Bills (wrong palette also) and then crashed the music (in 9x), which later crashed the game. After moving to ZSNES, I noticed a lot of corner tiles messed up. These are easy to fix, if the corner is in front of dirt, put dirt under it. If not, avoid putting dirt under it. Also, Mario’s Bullet Bill suit shot garbage in the first castle.

Also, a minor thing, the large pipe slopes were unblocked, and I could easily find myself inside the pipe.

Overall, this hack is somewhat bad-looking, not fun to play and crashes in major emulators. The creator needs to spend more time on this.
