Super Royal Pals. 3 is a “What If” hack. What if Nintendo decided to make the ladies of the Mushroom Kingdom the stars of the story. This time taking place across 8 worlds outside of the Mushroom Kingdom. Based on Southbird’s Disassembly.

  • Removed lives and replaced it with a death counter.
  • Removed Score [Score Events can still trigger.]
  • 1-UPs now reduce the death counter.
  • Hold the UP BUTTON before shooting a fireball to fire the projectile upward.
  • Press the SELECT BUTTON after collecting the end of level card to skip the animation.
  • Adjusted suit physics, added slide down hills to all suits, removed spin when you have a star.
  • 3 End Level cards will grant you a power-up instead of lives.
  • Frog Suit is now a Blooper Suit.

This is obviously not the first hack to invert the perennial damsel in distress trope of Mario games but if something’s worth doing it’s worth doing it repeatedly. Some related tropes are left intact like the women being princesses in dresses with little crowns which doesn’t seem ideal for what they are doing, while the men’s attire shows them to be working class, but let’s just say that the hack is lore-friendly in this aspect. Anyway, the new sprites are nicely drawn, and the animations all look good.

The gameplay changes are relatively small but I find all of them positive. The one with the most impact is the removal of lives (personally I’d prefer to even remove the death counter) and as a result of a Game Over. If you are playing for the challenge then this might not be what you want. But I don’t see how having to start from the beginning again adds anything to a game. The hack is also much more generous with items so you can start pretty much every stage with one if you so desire. This all allows for nice casual playing which for me improves the experience.

Being able shoot upward is neat, too.

Version 1.2 Recommended - Yes
