Complete Super Mario 64 romhacks really shouldn’t have been possible when this was released, given that no level-editing tools existed yet, but this defied all odds and was completed anyway.

The levels may look primitive by today’s standards, maybe even like something a child made in Roblox, but you have to remember that these levels were made using assembly. No, not programmed into the game with assembly, but literally modeled in assembly as there was no other way to modify them. Most people can’t even make a simple gameplay change in assembly, let alone model in it. It’s hard to even fathom what programming genius it took to make this mod. The immense amount of custom code makes up for the primitive modeling to create great gameplay anyway.

The original song mentioned in the description is excellent and the non-original songs are mostly great too as they mesh well with the Super Mario 64 soundfont. Except the song in that underground maze, which just sounds like an awful remix of a Bowser song.

This mod may be short compared to later mods like Super Mario 74 or Super Mario Star Road, but it isn’t very short or anything. At least, it’s longer than most “mini hacks” of Super Mario 64. Overall, I recommend this mod to anyone for its unique design process, and how it managed to be great despite seemingly impossible limitations.

9/10 Stars - Minor lack of polish.

Version 1.1 Recommended - Yes
