Hack of Super Mario Bros. 3


This is a minor hack of SMB3 that changes the Buzzy Beetle sprites to how they appear in the Super Mario Maker games (The original SMB3 simply recycled the sprites from SMB1).

A cool little fix

Reviewed By: Googie on 28 Sep 2020

Regardless if it’s a small hack, fixing the Buzzy Beetle graphics to look like they way they look in a Mario Maker games makes them look better. People who are new to SMB3 hacking should use this, I used it in two of my hacks. Chef Hexcellence you did good, man.
