Wario Land 2 - Enhanced Graphics

Hack of Wario Land II


This Patch will enhance the graphics of the Gameboy Color version of Wario Land 2:

  • Fixes graphical errors on Wario and many enemies.
  • Enhances Wario’s colors to resemble Wario Land 3’s color pattern
  • Bonus: Penguin enemies now hold beer like the Japanese uncensored version! (as opposed to ‘crazy balls’)
  • Bonus: This hack also fixes the inaccessible four 10 Gold Coins in the “Hold on to the Owl” level by changing the solid wall to breakable!

Credit goes to ShyGuyXXL for updating the graphics on Wario’s portrait located in the first room of the first level!

It's an interesting start but..

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.
