Wario Land: Super Mario Land 3 Color Edition

Hack of Wario Land: Super Mario Land 3

Description:

The first entry in the Wario Land series has been colorised with this hack.

It doesn’t have the quality of the Mario Land color hacks, but it’s still better than the monochrome version.

It doesn’t run on a monochrome Game Boy, only on a Game Boy Color.

Rough around the edges... literally

Reviewed By: SLXD249 on 24 Mar 2022

I’ve been waiting for something like this for Wario Land 1 for a long time. It’s a greatly underappreciated entry in the Wario Land series… and all my hopes were smashed like fine china. While I appreciate the effort to try and bring color to a GB game, it’s done completely wrong. Wario land does a lot of fade ins and outs, and for some strange reason, the overworld has a yellowish base while the fading section is more of a blue. The textures are being loaded entirely incorrectly. I can see all the corners of textures during both the fade out and in actual gameplay. it’s like someone forgot to properly crop and cut the colored edges of each tile. Also, Wario’s coloring is a rather weak attempt to make him stand out. the yellow and orange colorings are as interesting as bran cereal. The levels are also highly uninteresting. All they are are a combinations of yellows and browns amid a blue and white background.

I absolutely appreciate the effort to once again color a classic game, but between boring level palettes, unpleasantly edged tiles and a fadeout screen that is heavily half assed, I simply cannot recommend this.
