Super Mario Maker enjoyed a certain degree of visibility on the Wii U, but Super Mario Maker 2 on Nintendo Switch has given the entire course creating community a much bigger spotlight. Not only are more people playing overall, they’re sharing interesting levels on Twitter, Instagram, TikTok, and YouTube. As players discovered the limits of Mario Maker, it was inevitable that some would search for a less restrictive experience.
Tan finds that his harder levels just come as an expression of his ideas. "The cooler the idea, the harder the level becomes," he says.
I have played rom hacks before and some of them have been fun some some was just a buggy mess, like normal games. You’re saying you don’t want to pay for "rom hacks" and implying its because they require less work to create than a new game from scratch. As of late, Nintendo’s relationship with YouTube and the YouTube community has been, shall we say, tumultuous. This is really dumb on many different levels, but chiefly it’s dumb because it breeds ill-will amongst fans, of which Nintendo used to have many.
Palette editors are usually simple and often are with Level editors, or Game specific graphics editors. Download a Super Mario World ROM. You can download one by searching for a site with a ROM. Here you can find all of the various hacks I have made.

More over, the creator made an even harder version called Super Mario 74 Extreme Edition reusing levels from this game (replacing Champion’s Challenge with Triarc-Bridge), but for the purpose of making them devilishly difficult. Super Mario 74 is a ROM hack made by Lugmillord. It was released in June 2011 and contains 151 stars. The difficulty is amped up, but not so much to the point of ruining the fun. It starts very easy, and has a hard difficulty curve.

Well basically it takes SMB3, adds Luigi as a seperate character with his own set of properties and powers, adds a few powers to Mario to balance him out with Luigi.
