Mario Land 2 but with beautiful colors (and a minor issue)

Reviewed By: ScottRubin on 18 Mar 2018

A friend of mine told me about this hack and so I decided to try it out. The colors looks gorgeous and they add even more charm to an already great game! It has a really fitting choice of palettes too. I absolutely recommend to everyone to revisit Mario Land 2 with this patch applied!

I also really appreciate that Luigi is available as a playable character, but… I have some criticism about the physics of Luigi, which seem kinda unbalanced.

Luigi is slippery and jumps higher and scuttle in other games and it’s useful to correct your landing. However in this game he only jumps higher and is slippery, which can make the game easier and also harder. As an example, you can skip some platforming just by jumping higher but in other places like Wario’s Castle the platforming is harder, as it requires more precision.

I’d suggest to balance his physics more or make a side patch where his physics are the same as Mario’s, even though it kills the purpose of being able to play as a new character.

I still absolutely recommend this patch though, it looks great!
