Oh I'm 100% certain Mechner compressed the data to hell in the Apple II original, it's a technological marvel, should not exist on that machine. But! There's a c64 version written very recently by fans, I could get in touch with that coder perhaps, and the c64 is my favourite micro anyway.
That was Mr Sid, who occasinally shows up here as well. He described his process pretty much in detail.

Thanks. I'll get in touch with him if I ever do the character art swaps for Princess over Prince.

I've put up a download link for the IPS file at the bottom of my Super Mario Land page. It seems to work.

So how would I play this, do I just download a file or do I need some obscure emulator-ey thing?  ???

Just a GB emulator, the original rom, Lunar IPS and the patch. Once you patch the original game it'll run like any other. :)

Awesome work by the way Arne! :D I just came across this article earlier and the first thing I thought was "Hey, that looks like Arne's work", then I end up scrolling down and seeing that you actually did make it. XD

I've always liked working on 8x8 stuff, its pretty fun trying to make something that still looks good when you're so limited on space.

EDIT: nvm, looks like '502 bad gateway' doesn't occur on all topics. ignore this post.

If you insist on being pessimistic about your own abilities, consider also being pessimistic about the accuracy of that pessimistic judgement.

It's pretty tricky to get everything to work since some animation frames/tiles are shared (inconsistently). Sometimes all I can do is minimize the garble/impact.

Just put a Pauline patch up. Hope it works. I don't have/need the IPS thing myself. I provided an MD5. Patches might not always work as some dumps differ.
