The NES Super Mario World is probably the most accurate unlicensed port of the SNES original out there. Sure, it only has 28 levels to the original's 78 (with the Switch Palaces and secret worlds not being represented at all) and doesn't have (for example) Banzai Bill, but it ports over a lot of stuff pretty faithfully.

Probably the only real detriments are the poorly redone music and the somewhat-lackluster controls, although there are Game Genie codes to fix the jumping physics.

It's also notable for having a fully-functionable Yoshi, something Nintendo said was impossible to have on NES hardware. You LIARS!

Hmmm...
To do:
Several things:
  • This page lists some bit variables: Mario's current state (Small, Super, etc.), his current state with Yoshi (no Yoshi, on Yoshi, Yoshi with P-Switch, etc.), swimming, invincibility, and number of stages unlocked. Could be good for a Notes page.
  • More unused graphics (see talk page, requires verification).
  • There's a bug where the Butter Bridge 2 stage always begins at the midpoint.
  • Unused world map content

Unused Graphics

Mario

SMWNES UnusedMarioSprites.png

Super Mario and Fire Mario have several sprites that go unused. They even have Luigi variants. Some things to note:

  • While Mario can throw fireballs in the game, the second unused sprite uses tiles from Super Mario's graphic banks, hence why this is unused.
  • The last sprite seems depict a different head for Mario, but it's found with the Fire Mario sprites and no other tiles exist for this variation.
  • Mario can kick shells, but it has no animation in-game.
  • A possible reason why the sliding and kicking sprites are unused is due to a lack of similar sprites for Small Mario.

Enemies

SMWNES Muncher.png

Unused graphics for Muncher. The ones that appear in-game only have one frame and act as a background hazard. These look like they could be used as sprites.

SMWNES LakituSpiny.png

Lakitu and Spiny look like they were planned at one point, and could have appeared in Forest of Illusion 4 (Chocolate Island 1 in this port). No graphics exist for a cloud that Mario could ride in, however.

SMWNES PodobooHorziontal.png

Although horizontal Podoboos are used in-game, they use a different style and are not animated.

SMWNES BulletBill.png

Bullet Bills were apparently planned as well. These could've appeared in Cheese Bridge Area.

SMWNES DiggingCharginChuck.png

Graphics for a digging Chargin' Chuck, which is strange since they only appeared in one level of the original: Valley of Bowser 4, which was one of the levels that did not get ported over.

SMWNES ClappingCharginChuck.png

A sprite for a clapping Chargin' Chuck.

SMWNES Fishbone.png

Fishbone's graphics. Similar to the digging Chargin' Chuck, the areas where Fishbone was encountered in the original are not in this port.

SMWNES FlattenedEnemies.png

Flattened sprites exist for Koopas and Rexes, but aren't seen in-game. This is especially odd given that Dino-Torches do use their flattened sprite.

Miscellaneous

SMWNES FlipBlock.gif

An animation for the Flip Block, which goes unused as you can't flip blocks in this port. There is in fact an unused spinning flip block tile that uses this animation, but it simply acts as a normal solid block. Interestingly, this tile does appear in Roy's Castle in the incomplete version! (It's replaced with the used stationary Flip Block in the complete version.)

SMWNES EggPieces.png

Eggshell pieces. Similar graphics were used in the original when Yoshi hatches out of an egg.

SMWNES BooMap.png

A tiny Boo. In the original game, this appeared over ghost houses on the overworld map.

SMWNES Princess.png

A sprite of the Princess reaching the ground and opening her eyes after falling out of the Koopa Clown Car, which is not used here.

SMWNES StarRoadWarp.png

Unused tile for the Star Road warps from the original game. There are no other graphics relating to Star Road in the game, so this may have been scrapped early in development.

SMWNES-JYLogo.png

While in any level, pause and press Up, Right, A, Down, Right, B, Up, Left to trigger a hidden JY logo screen, using the standard full-screen logo found in most JY-published games. The only way out is to reset.

This code also works in the incomplete version, but parts of the logo appear smashed up.
