Played this on the train to London, I've always loved the original and was super happy to see this childhood dream come to life.
This game has always been kinda weird, the stage themes are random and the sprites look funny, but that's part of the reason I've always liked it. It definitely feels like a Mario game done by the Wario team, which is a great thing in my book.
As for the color hack, they did a good job of realizing the world, but I would be lying if I said it was a perfect touch up. Sometimes coloring an originally mono-chromatic work removes some of the charm, often the case with manga, and sometimes that happens here. That's not really the hackers fault, more just the nature of this sorta thing.
Regardless I think you should play it if you've played the original, and be warned, that final level is still damn tough.

A game so nostalgic to me I remember my older brother getting it for his birthday when we were super young and with a purple game boy color too and I was just as excited! Still have the whole thing on VHS too! Nice to finally complete this and knock it off my list and the DX color hack give me more initiative to actually finish it. I like the unique worlds and enemies they used in this one. Pretty short, although you have to be in the mood to play something like this otherwise you may get bored with it.

Pretty brain dead way to spend 2 hours. Had fun tho

It's fine, everyone says it's massively underrated but like, it's literally just an ok Mario game

I mean it's better than the 1st Super Mario Land, it's also not really good.

This is surprisingly one of my favorite 2d mario games. Very solid level design, which is enhanced by amazing level themes. They are so creative and its even better thanks to this mod. The only improvement I would make would be slightly better controls, their a tad stiff but are not that bad. Would highly recommend!!!
