Hey friends, welcome back to some more Super "Mario" World by 1UpDudes! Today we continue our cartoonish romp, lets a-go!
The first level features the Platform of Many Sprites, which takes up pretty much every single sprite slot in the game. Mostly this goes fine, except for a small part where I believe I was being pelted by invisible Bullet Bills. Bullet Bills are hard enough to deal with normally when they're coming at you from all sides, but invisible ones? I never stood a chance.
After that we hit up Crazy Guy's Fort, the most directly to-the-point named bad guy that I've ever seen. He's got a great sprite, but its almost cheating to say that. I could say "Blank has a great sprite", filling in any random enemy in the game, and it would be a valid thought. Seriously, I love the art.
The gameplay's great too though, don't get me wrong on that. I don't love the art because there's something lacking in the other departments, it's a well-rounded adventure that plays as well as it looks.
I enjoyed the Goshi-feeding key task, which took me way more attempts than it should have, but was fun none-the-less. It's little pieces of good level design like that that really stand out for me. I find I remember some hacks as a series of little fun events that stood out and showed me something new. As simple as it is in theory, feeding Yoshi on a moving platform is one of those events. It gives you something to pull from when designing levels of your own, which is one of the reasons I love watching or playing hacks. Another example of this concept is jumping off the wall to grab the key. I mentioned that I'd never seen that before, and it's something like that that is ultimately small, but also sets my creativity off and makes me wonder what else you could do with that mechanic.
The green switch wasn't too notable. not that there was anything wrong with it, but it was just an average level. I might put too high of expectations on Switch Palaces. I usually expect them to be one of a few things -- either a bonus game or challenge of some sort, something that involves advanced mechanics like glitches, or maybe a Kaizo challenge. You can also include stuff like the 1-2 recreation from the earlier Switch Palace.
Speaking of Switch Palaces, we are told after the fort that we need all four switches to get to Reswob, but did we collect them all? Unless your memory is better than mine, we will have to wait until next time to find out.
Thanks for joining me friends, I hope you're enjoying the series so far. Special thanks to you 1UpDude for making an awesome hack, but also a thank you extended to everyone that stops by to watch the videos and hang out with me. I really appreciate it friends, you have no idea how much it means to me.

---[ Squiggy's ROM Hack Romp Series Information ]---------------
Squiggy's ROM Hack Romp is a series on Super Mario World ROM Hacks. In this series, I will play through SMW ROM Hacks that are submitted to me and that I pull off smwcentral.net. I'll always play the submitted ones first though! Ideally, I will use no save states and do full commentary playthroughs.
I am also happy to accept ROM hacks for any other game, or even a game you programmed or somehow created outside of the ROM hacking world. Basically I love amateur user-created gameplay of any type, and even if it isn't a ROM Hack Romp contender, I'd be happy to play anything you've made and put it in another series!
If you are a ROM hacker or enthusiast, let me know if there's anything you'd like me to play. Whether it be one you made yourself or one you'd just like to see, leave me a comment below or send it over to SendMeYourHacks@gmail.com and I'll be sure to get back to you. Thanks for watching friends!
