Super Mario 74 is a ROM hack made by Lugmillord. It was released in June 2011 and contains 151 stars. The difficulty is amped up, but not so much to the point of ruining the fun. It starts very easy, and has a hard difficulty curve. It doesn't get too hard until the very end, and even more so in the final two "sphere" levels. The main plot of this game is explained by a Toad close to where you spawn when you enter the Valley of the Toads. As usual, Princess Peach gets kidnapped by Bowser. However, there are more than the usual 120 stars, implying that is a direct sequel to Super Mario 64. The extra 30 stars happened to be hidden in the toilet. In-game, these 30 stars are placed throughout the overworlds and in the secret stages. Also, once you get to the final two levels, Mario learns of the Kubus(es), which are cubes that control certain aspects of every video game in existence. Though there are five in total, two are introduced in the original. The Kubus of Light provides energy for sunlight in every video game, and the Kubus of Darkness produces all of the darkness in every video game.
