YMMV / Brutal Mario

  • Genius Programming: The ASM is very creative and ingeniously implemented.
  • Hilarious in Hindsight: The Kitiku Demo had you fight Galactic Nova inside a sidescrolling shooter-style level with Yoshi. Skip ahead to Kirby: Planet Robobot, where the true final boss is basically a Nova lookalike, even throwing its junk at you ... it's more of a first-person view this time though, similar to Star Fox.
  • Love It or Hate It: While applauded for its creative use of ASM (custom bosses, level gimmicks, etc.) the hack has been criticized heavily for its poor level design, obnoxiously hard difficulty curve, and over-reliance on said-ASM.
  • That One Level: Titanic, mostly because of the extremely strict time limit that makes it a nightmare even with save states.
  • Woolseyism: The English translation, unofficially done by a completely random SMWC user. Also, Carol's English is probably more like Intentional Engrish for Funny.
