IntroductionHow low can rom hacking actually go? Well, we're about to find out. Welcome to Kaizo Mario World. Please leave all hope and fun at the door before entering.
What the hell is this?
Kaizo Mario World is a quite particular japanese rom hack which was brought upon everyone's attention by Wolfshirt on the forums. It is another one of those typical rom hacks, which are all about minimal game editing (I mean, the overworld map is almost exactly the same!), while making the game extra difficult. However, Kaizo Mario World do elevate the meaning of the word "difficulty" to a whole new level. No area in this game will spare you. It will brutally slaughter you with close to impossible jumping feats, dastardly obstacles, and a lot of very nasty and quite unexpected traps.
On a side note, the hack has at least a few good things going for it. First of all, this is a very short rom hack. It do have only 14 levels, so provided you don't turn insane while you play, it can be completed rather quickly. Secondly, the hack is all about skill (and save-state abuse, there's NO way anyone could beat this game without save states). This means that the hack can actually be completed without having to exploit any bugs or glitches in the engine. What a relief!
How is this going to work?
A small team of insane people have been brought together to play this game. Proton Jon, Wugga and myself are all going to play the game and show you people what happens when rom hacking goes wrong. This is going to be a wild ride, filled to the brim with people being exasperated, angry and yelling so loudly that the nearby neighbors will come to shut us up.
Additionally, you can also join the team as a freelance player making your way through the hack with us all! Anyone who's willing to showcase his playing abilities at this game is welcome to post videos of himself failing brutally at this game. It's a vicious circle. Let's suffer together!
(However, we would like you not to spoil the thread ahead by posting videos of areas that haven't been covered yet by the official team working on the thread. If you do videos of levels that none of us have played through yet, please be patient and wait for us to cover said level before you post them. Thanks!)
Every single video made for the thread will make its way to the OP! Official or not!
Sounds fun! I want to join in in order to get brutally and digitally raped!
Click here to download Kaizo Mario World! (thanks Wolfshirt)
In order to run this, you need a program called Lunar IPS and a rom of the American version of Super Mario World. As you get both, you can use Lunar IPS to patch the rom, using the data found in the .ips file you have downloaded. There you go, you got a brand new game! For better or for worse.
