    Looks very nice! Surprised how well your versions stack up against AlphaDream's in general, it seems you get the art style more than a lot of people who try and recreate it...

    Added another version where the toes are more like the GBA style.

    So apparently when you get a huge combo in the barrel minigame (in the GBA version) this guy appears:
    upload_2017-10-10_17-21-45.png
    It's a skeleton sprite that's veeeery similar to the stalfos sprites from the first Zelda.
    When you get a not-as-big combo a chain chomp skeleton (Dry Chomp?) appears:
    upload_2017-10-10_17-43-22.png
    And when you clear a lot of lines in practice mode Bink needs to take a break and eat a banana:

    I wonder if any of these things are still in the 3DS version. Can anyone check it out? I don't have the game yet.

    That's a really interesting question to be honest. I'm curious about the exact same thing, especially given how I wrote about it in an article a while ago.

    This is something they could post on Supper Mario Broth. ^^

    The Boos have unsurprisingly been hit with the generic stick again.

    On the GBA they had different expressions like this:
    upload_2017-10-11_19-53-20.png ...or this... upload_2017-10-11_19-53-37.png ...or this... upload_2017-10-11_19-53-59.png upload_2017-10-11_19-54-35.png ...or this... upload_2017-10-11_19-55-20.png

    Which is a callback to Super Mario World and its Boos with their whacky expressions.

    On the 3DS they basically just have these:
    upload_2017-10-11_19-55-52.png upload_2017-10-11_19-56-34.png
    Weren't the different expressions a way to see which Bro is gonna be attacked? Why did they scrap that?

    This game (kind of) had them too. So why not have them?

    I wonder why they turned the Hoohoo blocks brown/grey from purple.
    upload_2017-10-12_12-27-42.png
    And the egg looks more like a generic egg than a meteorite.

    I liked this design. It was awesomely weird...
    The stones being purple made them look more special.

    Nope. It's gone. I just checked. All 3 easter eggs are gone and replaced with NOTHING. Nought. Zilch. Garnix.
    AND YOU CAN'T EVEN PLAY PRACTICE MODE ANYMORE!
    What they call practice is just the tutorial again.
    That's a huge shame since I loved playing endless practice mode. You could just sit back, relax and not have to think about a time limit or a high score.
    It was pretty zen.
    BUT NOW IT'S GONE!!! :gutterlydevastated: WHYYYYYY!?!?!

    Not surprising. Unfortunately, it seems all the neat 'extras' the original game had are gone or toned down here.

    Inventory:

    But why take out the practice mode?
    It's just the regular mode without a timer and the high-score system. It doesn't require any extra work. Just a few small tweaks.
    Removing characters is one thing, removing easter eggs is another thing, but removing a small but really nice play mode in a minigame?
    ...That's ...that's just wrong. :Sweetjesus:

    Okay, you or someone should seriously consider doing a rom hack of the remake
    With your stuff added in when it becomes possible, @ShyGuyXXL because all of these custom sprites you've been doing has been wonderful and honestly blows the remake's effort out of the water. (Even though a lot of it is not their fault and is simply because of Nintendo's current mandates and that's not saying the remake is bad by any means.) As you kept true to the charm and soul of the original game while at the same time, updating what's necessary and modernizing it
    Seriously, wonderful job!

    Thank you very much! I'm glad people like them.
    And yeah, I wanted to draw them in a way that captures the personality of the original but also doesn't look out of place in a modern game.

    If someone was here who's familiar with 3DS Romhacking and knows how to include stuff like this, I'd be happy to work with them!
    I don't have any idea how to do it. I've never even looked into 3DS emulation.
    But if someone knows how...
