A Pure Vanilla Hack

2010 • Super Mario World • finished

"Vanilla", at least to Super Mario World hackers, means using few or no custom resources. This hack takes it to an extreme and touches precisely nothing other than level data. It's quite a short hack, only changing the five levels in the first world.

I made this hack to try out a tool released at the time that could transfer level data from a Super Mario World ROM to one of Super Mario Advance 2 for the GBA. That means it's a hack of two games at once!

This is probably the most forgettable hack I've made, and rightly so. Vanilla can be neat, but the levels here are really nothing to gush over.
