    Formatting error with Headline, it was necessary to remove the Italics bbCode. I assume that bbCode doesn't work in the entry box for Headlines, not that it matters. That was unknown to me, this being my first review entry. Also some minor touch-ups to the main review text, and placed [List] bbCode for the Luna and Dryad subsections. That hopefully improves the readability of such a lengthy text block!

It's an interesting start but..

Reviewed By: ScottRubin on 28 Jul 2018

The hack is going in a good direction, but in its current state I wouldn’t recommend it.

The sprites and palette of Wario is what bugs me the most: They’re an in-between of the WL2 and WL3 sprites (mostly WL2 with minor edits). But instead of using the WL3 palette and edit just a few parts of the WL2 sprite (like the eye) why doesn’t the hack creator replace the entire sprites with the WL3 ones? They’re more polished. The front facing sprite is the WL2 one but with the WL3 hat and a line that separates gloves and arms. I get that it wasn’t completely replaced because the front facing animations are different from the ones of WL3 but it still feels inconsistent to me.

Also, the new palette from WL3 makes half the body of Wario disappear when in pitch black places (the GBC WL2 palette of Wario had a dark blue-ish color that was slighty more visible in these areas).

Also the GB side of the ROM gets corrupted if you apply this patch, making it unplayable. Though, most people get the GBC version exactly because it has colors anyway so I doubt they’d play with the GB side.
