Super Mario Advance - Boss Intro Restoration

Hack of Super Mario Advance

Description:

In Super Mario Advance, Fryguy and Clawgrip have new introductions. These intros show what the bosses looked like before being transformed to fight the player.

Interestingly enough, Mouser and Tryclyde also have fully programmed introductions that go unused. Readding them back to the game, however, reveals that these intros are in a slightly unpolished state (for example, there doesn’t seem to be code to display the second animation frame).

This patch not only restores these unused boss intros, but also touches them up as much as possible to look more in-line with Fryguy and Clawgrip’s boss intros.

Another fantastic improvement!

Reviewed By: legend80 on 29 Jan 2022

Just checked out Mouser battle on 1-3 and Tryclyde on 2-3. Looks flawless and what Nintendo designed before they scrapped it for some crazy reason. Neat little addition to give a (brief) backstory about how Wart transformed these innocent animals into Ninja Turtles er…Mario bosses.

Not sure what is left for you to improve on this fantastic title more, but I’m sure you’ll find something. Maybe the 2 unused veggies? :) https://tcrf.net/Super_Mario_Advance#Vegetables
