Recent Updates

  • Hacks
    Added the following features: - All the shine sprite models have been tinted green, including the ones on the episode select menus and the monument one in Delfino Plaza. - The Shadow Mario wanted poster in Delfino Airstrip has been changed to a wanted poster of Shadow Luigi. - Various shine sprite images have been tinted green. Updated the list of things it still needs by adding these previously unmentioned problems: - The FLUDD nozzles don't always render correctly. - The Luigi model lacks many of the texture-altering features of the original Mario model, such as visibly getting dirty from the goop or closing his eyes when he goes to sleep. - The level entry portals are still "M"s instead of "L"s. - The goop originally at Delfino Airstrip is still in the shape of a Mario head with an "M" above it instead of a Luigi head with an "L" above it. I also added in the description that people should explain how they created the new assets they make for this mod to me so I can more easily alter them if necessary. And I changed two of the pictures to show off the newly green tinted shine sprite models and textures.

Reviewed By: MetalSmasher86 on 27 May 2020

Let me start by saying this hack does what I believe every good complete ROM hack should do which is give a fresh challenge to players who have mastered the base game without going overboard with it. This hack basically warns you of this in the first level by throwing those vicious birds at you right out of the gate (they didn’t show up until level 3 in the base game), and basically making you fight one of the final bosses from the base game as the very first boss fight.

But then this hack also does something that I hoped someone would do in a Ninja Gaiden NES hack for a while now, which is incorporate one of the new player characters from the Xbox/Playstation trilogy in the classic 8-bit style. In two of the levels you can play as the young purple-clad kunoichi Ayane. Even if it’s only for two levels, and even though she doesn’t play any different from Ryu, this is still a very nice touch. Still holding out hope for an 8-bit Rachel hack sometime…
