Demo World is a hack to demonstrate how well Lunar Magic can modify
Super Mario World. There are 3 major versions of Demo World that
have been released to date.
The first version of Demo World was released on September 10, 2001.
While it only contained a few short levels, it's primary purpose was
to serve as an example for how to do custom block ASM. To this end,
it was the first hack to implement the animated "breakable brick"
from Mario 3. The brick could be broken only when Mario hit it from
below when big or from the side with a cape. It would also turn into
a coin when a POW was hit. There were a few other custom blocks as
well, such as a block that would break only when Mario hit it with a
fireball, and a Mario 3 style frozen coin.
A second unofficial version of Demo World was later released by
Bouche, called "Demo World 3". It was identical to Demo World other
than the music, which was replaced with Mario 3 tunes.
The third version of Demo World was released on September 21, 2003.
Called "Demo World : The Legend Continues" (DW:TLC), it's a full hack
of Mario World that's complete right to the end. It showcases many
of the features in Lunar Magic, including the new tile and palette
animation feature included in version 1.60. And as with the original
Demo World, it has new custom blocks such as screen-scrolling type
pipes that are similar to what you'd see in Mario 3. A version 1.1
update was released about a month later to fix a few bugs.
If you wish, you can use the first Demo World hack to base your own
hack off of. DW3 by Bouche is not available here. And DWTLC is
locked. Please don't email me questions on these hacks.
Keep in mind that while game patches are not considered illegal, distribution of commercial game ROMs is. Therefore, the file does not include an actual Super Mario World game ROM. I suggest you check a search engine for other sites that may contain ROMs.
