Solid hack. Dream come true

Reviewed By: segwayspeedracer on 23 Oct 2018

Pluses:

Wow this feels very responsive. I didn’t experience any lag and is VERY fun. Way better than PC programs built from scratch to deliver this experience. Recommended as a party game to surprise your friends. The 2 player co op adds a whole new replayability to the game.

Quirks:

Players MUST cooperate and communicate! Levels only end when both players contact the axe or flag, meaning simple bowser fights such as world 4-4 can be nightmarish because both players have to coordinate their pass/run through bowser. Makes for an amazing and unique experience… But will be mentally draining if you just hope to smash through levels uncoordinated. This game does a great job teaching communication.

Be careful, both players need to agree to enter a pipe. For example, in 1-2, luigi went through the exit to end the level and mario went forward to the warp zone. This ended up with mario stuck for 200 seconds at the ceiling until TIME UP because neither could advance. This is not a negative, but players need to be mindful of the hack’s quirks.

Path Forward:

This mod will be a MUST HAVE CORNERSTONE for jumpstarting personal rom hacks if it will one day support SMB Utility and Frantiks Workshop. I am 100% certain this mod will become timeless if it is accessible for other modders to use as a template.

Also, may be a good idea to bump the starting lives to 5, so inexperienced little bros can join in and survive the retro genre. May disrupt the “purity” of the mod but having that as an extra patch will allow this mod to reach a broader audience.
