Super Mario Bros. CD

Also know as: SMBCD

Super Mario Bros. CD (SMBCD) is a rom hack of Super Mario World that is a "what if" of sorts for a SMB game on a CD based console! The CD based console in this situation is the FamicomCD, which is a fictional add-on for the Famicom/NES and is not the Super NES CD, which some people seem to mix up. SMBCD functions off of MSU-1 to deliver high quality and rich CD quality audio created exclusively for SMBCD, as well as fully animated cutscenes and more complex level environments in some cases. SMBCD also heavily utilizes Mode 0 for its levels, providing more layers for foreground environments and background parallax. Mode 0 is a background mode for the Super NES that allows 4 layers at once, but will cause all layers to be in 2BPP or 4 colors per tile (this does not include sprite layers and they retain their 16 colors). SMBCD takes place upon the small yet diverse Archipelago of Brixurei. Mysteriously, the main source of protection and security for the archipelago, The Guardian of Brixurei, had gone mad, causing poor weather and upset wildlife to run rampant. Locals were left baffled and worried. Those who had attempted to find out what was going on by departing from their towns were never heard from since. Due to the chaos that was being caused by the Guardian's berserk nature, the locals called upon the one and only Mario to help them. With the Mushroom Kingdom wishing farewells, Mario set off by boat towards the Archipelago of Brixurei, bringing Luigi along for the ride. In this journey, the brothers will also meet a new friendly face who will accompany them.
