Hack of Super Mario Bros. 2


Here is a full hack for Super Mario Bros. 2 which changes all the levels and some of the graphics in the game. Also some degree of difficulty has been added such as normal encounters with Mouser and harder levels :).

Very well designed & classic feel, steep difficulty

Reviewed By: Duke2go on 26 Jun 2015

I REALLY enjoyed this project, but the tagline pretty much describes it. Right from the start, you fall like normal, but you’re falling into something like you’ve NEVER seen in SMB2 US. Before I’d even gotten through the first door, I’d faced a locked door (complete with Phanto), spikes, and a very difficult maneuver to fall safely. I will try to put it simply, I have not had to continue in level 1-1 of classic SMB2 US in probably 10 years +, until yesterday. While I was initially frustrated (particularly initially by the Mouser in level 1-1 about 30 seconds in), when I relaxed, I saw what the author had done fairly well with the level balance. If you pay attention to your surroundings, you will progress in a fashion similar to classic SMB2 US. One of the best aspects of being frustrated however is what the author has done with the visuals. Many sprites have been altered (including Goombas) and the background tiles pop in a vibrant and welcoming way. So while you’re struggling to figure out the pattern (that is there, you just have to look for it)you’re visually impressed. I didn’t particularly like some of the changed sprites, but overall its a very solid hack. I would like to point out that in level 6-3 if you go left after you come up the ladder and drop down, you’ll be led to only a locked door and no key, and no way back out. Fortunately, I had just saved my state as the level started, but otherwise I would have had to reset to an earlier state or altogether. Would love to give some more detailed feedback to the author b/c this was a FANTASTIC experience!!
