Default Super Mario Bros. 3 Deluxe: A preview

As many of you know, I am the ROM Hackinger who created Mario Adventure. That hack a lot of problems and lacked a lot of features that I wanted to be in SMB#...

A year later and I decided to do a last hoorah SMB3 hack. What can you expect in this one?

First of all, most of the levels are just edits of the original; some are major, som are minor. However, I've expanded the rom so that I can include even MORE levels than before, so it won't be just a rehash of levels from before.

Now that's out of the way lets get to the juicy stuff. Firstly, Luigi is the star of this hack. He has retained his sprites from SMAS SMB3 and his controls from SMB2 Japan (slippy control and floatier jumping). Luigi's fireballs bounce higher than before and when they hit enemies, it turns them into coins, like in SMW.

This hack contains 2 completely new power ups: Mouser Suit and Panda Suit.
The Mouser Suit has the ability to throw bombs, the Panda Suit can walk on ceilings (among other powers for both). Hammer Luigi has been converted into Boomerang Luigi.

Both Boomerang and Fire Luigi can throw not 2, not 3, but FIVE fireballs/boomerangs respectively at a time!

The P-Switch has expanded powers also: It turns orange ! blocks solid and blue ! blocks into non-solid blocks. And in most stages, it will turn enemies into red coins, which are worth 5 coins a piece.

Like in Mario Adventure, you can now get over 100 coins, for up to a 999 coin total.

These coins will be used to BUY items in an item shop. This is not a shop where you pay a flat rate to get a random item: This is a REAL item shop where you choose which item you want to buy at a set price. There are 3 different item shops with different items in each, with a totaly of a 6 item slection per shop...

But 6 x 3 = 18... that's 18 items, and SMB3 originally had 13...
That's right, SMB3DX has actually ADDED items, along with modifiying older items for a a large number of items to use! However, it doesn't stop there. Since there's so many new items, the item box has been expanded from 28 to 49 max items to use!

There are also a few enemy modifications: such as each Koopa Kid having it's own set amount of health. When fighting a Koopa Kid, it's health displays as hearts in the status bar.

Boom-Boom fights have been altered when fighting two at a time. If you defeat one, then it will turn into a Mushroom, rather than a ? ball. The last Boom Boom you defeat will be the one that releases a ? ball.

There's much more to be seen in this soon to be released hack. It's very close to completion, so I decided why not get the word out. And now, some screenshots!

I don't know... Wheelchair Mario was pretty good<img src=smilies/headshake.gif>

Seriously though, I like the standing-on-the-ceiling bit.

It would be better if it were the SNES version from Mario Allstar, but oh well. Looks like a great hack with stuff that Nintendo shoulda put in in the first place.
