Approx. hack length: 30 minutes.
Detailed information. Nothing extravagant here, just a small ROM hack. Mario finds himself falling from the sky into a mansion owned by some Lakitu named “Laki-Laki.” whom has let her mansion be infested with ghosts and ghouls of several kinds.
Creepy stuff happens in nowhere.
See for yourself what happens.
You’re welcome to pick apart this hack, and learn from what it has to offer, despite not being a whole lot. This hack was lots of trial and error, and I wanted to make Gian a little more hopeful that people CAN make some cool stuff with his editor, since there aren’t as many hacks as in Super Mario World.
You can’t just pick up the editor and make some stupid, glitchy level and call it a hack. …well, no, that’s not true. You can do it, it just takes more effort to create something in LS than LM.
Point is, I want feedback on this hack, and hope that some people can use some tricks that I used here to create your own hacks, or improve on them.

User Review Information
Enjoyable, but short and basicReviewed By: Sosuko on 31 Jul 2020
Exactly as advertised, this is an under an hour game with a pretty basic story and premise. While running through a palette-swapped version of Booster’s Tower, you fight some modified enemies with just Mario. There are some unique animations and attacks for Mario and the enemies, though most of the former are just palette-swapped versions of existing one. Speaking of the palette, it’s very bland (gray-scale), and while that is clearly intentional, it is a bit dull to look at for the entire experience.
In terms of difficulty and strategy, there really isn’t much here. Beat up some enemies for enough cash, buy the best equipment, and breeze on through. There are some tricks to the boss battles, but these are kept pretty tame. Ultimately, when limited to only a single character, it really keeps things pretty straightforward without much room for strategy.
Still, the environment, gameplay, and story were perfectly fine for what this hack is (a short single area RPG). It has a unique style to it and showcases some familiar things in a new light.
