IntroductionFor some time now, LP'ers have had a great interest in playing romhacks. Some are amusing because they offer new items, bosses, or gameplay elements. Other romhacks, however, seem to exist only to cause the player increasing levels of frustration by pushing the difficulty to the limit. Many Super Mario World romhacks tried to do this. Sometimes there were gauntlets of enemies to fight, or heavy limitations on powerups. Maybe the player was meant to exploit glitches to come out ahead.
However, there was one romhack that stood above the rest. Instead of changing the gameplay or requiring glitches to be exploited, it was instead a brutal romhack requiring surgical levels of precision, in which one slight mistake collects a toll in lives.
That hack was known as Kaizo Mario World.
This hack prompted Psychedelic Eyeball, Proton Jon, Wugga, and many others to struggle with it for our amusement. Thousands of Marios died. Dozens of innocent Yoshis were flung into lava. The click of load state and rewind keys were drowned out by a constant stream of swear words. In the end, the LP'ers finished playing the hack and deleted it from their hard drives, believing the battle to be over.
Unfortunately, they were mistaken. As they celebrated their hard-earned victory, there was an individual in Japan working on a new rom hack...
Welcome to the Kaizo Mario World 2 LP Thread!
Invisible coin blocks, jumping football Koopas, and cheap death traps are this game's selling points. This hack is absolutely brutal. Save state abuse is both understandable and encouraged.
Warning: According to the Surgeon General, LP'ers should not play Kaizo Mario World without savestates because of the risk of brain aneurysms. Playing Kaizo Mario World impairs your ability to jump without fear of smacking your head into invisible blocks, and may cause health problems.
The crew of players is slightly different from last time, but the level of masochism will still be the same. We will be releasing videos of the game's levels as we play through. This time our player's list consists of:
-BEER BOTTLE BILL
God help us.
Hey, I would like to play too!
Wonderful! Just like last time, everyone is encouraged to download the .ips file and play along. Make some videos of yourself struggling along with us! When you have them up you can either post them in the thread or PM the video link to me and I will edit the link into the OP.
Right click, save as to download the patch. You will need to add .ips to the file name when you download it.
You will need Lunar IPS and a rom of Super Mario World in order to play. Simply use Lunar IPS and patch your rom with the .ips file and you're on your way to higher blood pressure with the rest of us!
