Sonic 3 Complete is a very interesting hack of Sonic 3 and the definitive way to play the game, imo.
It's essentially the same as the base game, but it offers a variety of improvements and customizable options.

Some Super Mario World ROM hacks seem to be almost like you're playing something completely different, in terms of mechanics and all. A classic example is the Call of Cthulhu ROM hack. I've always wondered WHY there are so many ROM hacks for SMW and not something like say, SMB3.

SMW became the more popular option which means that it has become more convenient as more user-friendly get developed as a result. This in turn would attract people who are getting into hacking to choose SMW, because the existing community has ensured that hacking SMW is easier than hacking other games.

Ah, thanks for the clarification.

I won't be surprised of someone already named Newer Super Mario Bros Wii. It's just a really cool hack with custom bosses and all

Newer Super Mario Bros. Wii. The boss fights are awesome (except for the Koopalings, because they are too generic), bonus Worlds, good music and amazing level design.

A ROM hack called Super Mario Bros. 3 Mix. It's an amazing ROM hack, with so much from other games, even gravity mechanics and Star Coins.

I feel like saying this ROM Hack is interesting, despite being a bootleg hack* on the original Gameboy,

Super Mario 4 (A hack of Crayon Shin Chan 4)



*Yes, Bootleg hacks counts btw! :D

Paper Mario 64 Pro Mode* is the most interesting Nintendo 64 ROM Hack I ever seen! Must I say more? ;)
*I find this hack interesting because the creator of this hack modify some of the bosses and in-game events. Plus, these extra features:
  • A "Rematch" boss gauntlet
  • Beta badges that weren't in the final game
  • 2x pain for you! :geek:
  • Some custom/beta enemies like for example, a spiked paragoomba
  • The "Luigi's challenge" were you can't level up, and start with 64 Badge points

I was thinking of giving this ROM hack a go whenever I get the chance by downloading the project 64 emulator. ^^"

That reminds me, do you know Super Mario 7?
Better known as 7 Grand Dad. It spawned a meme within the Vinesauce community, and eventually spread out further.
Though it's more of a bootleg than a ROM hack...

Another ROM hack I really enjoyed was Super Mario Logic. It was a really creative puzzle hack, and I suggest checking it out.

Bump!




I recently noticed there's a expansion hack of Super Mario Bros. 1 out there called: Super Mario Bros. 1/3! And guess what, it HAS 2 player co-op mode*! Wow! So here's a YouTube video:








*The same 2 player co-op as in Chip n' Dale on the NES
