An enhanced Starfox with notably better graphics. Still on SNES, but on the FX2 microchip.

Because Andross clearly looks like Andross in SF2. Original... uhhhh

A text hack of X3 (or whichever has the gold armour in) where Dr Light is a bit more self-positive when giving X the gold armour; Instead of "I am not worthy!" several times it's "I am noteworthy!"

An ultimate edition of Advance Wars that has all the content of the series in one game.

I'll uh...see myself out.

Starfox for SNES except it's all the girls.

Yep, even Krystal.

Rondo of Blood, but the cutscenes are translated and dubbed using the same voice actors that Telenet Japan used for games like Last Alert.

Aria of Sorrow hack, where the map is changed around a little so it's like exploring it all over again.

Pretty much can be applied to any Metroidlike game.

Starfox except level object data is swapped with level environment data.

Hilariously, I've already done this. Wasn't quite what I was going for, so I'll have to get back into VL-Tone's uber-complex hacking program to fix it, if I can. If so, then I just need to figure out how to fix the header so it can run on my SNES Classic.

Does something I actually made count? Because the dumbest thing I ever did was add 4x spawn-rate higher spawn-cap ghosts and chonchons (and also a ninja for good measure) to every screen in La-Mulana. It was a little silly

Sonic 2(or any sonic game really) where you keep rings between stages, and the enemies don't take away all, but instead a certain amount of rings depending on the enemy. Preferably a large amount to have it challenging and encourage exploration.(wasn't aiming for stupid so much tbh )

A bit ago I had this idea for a really Sonic hack while talking to someone after looking at the differing amount of chaos emeralds in the various games:

There's a lot of chaos emeralds. Man man many emeralds They're littered all over the levels. You should collect a bunch of them. When it comes around to the ending, Sonic dramatically takes cutscene damage and then drops the chaos emeralds he has. All of them. The good ending requires so many emeralds because as they flow out of Sonic's inventory they start piling out around the place and weighing down the Final Egg Place Zone untill it starts sinking into the ocean. Robotnik/Eggman gets forced out by a geyser of emeralds.

Also:

Yoshi's island but whenever the baby's crying the ROM tricks the emulator to unmute and gradually increases the volume.

Yoshi's Island but instead of baby Mario crying it's Sagat saying "Tiger" over and over.

Except Luigi plays the stage as a TAS would just to show off.

TASing the Luigi mode would be a fun April Fools' gag.

Lately I've been imagining porting the maps from Final Fantasy or Link to the Past into Pokemon.

Sonic CD where the only difference is Sonic's "Yes!" is replaced by Knuckles' "Oh no!"

StarTropics except it ends on the screen after the intro to Chapter 3. Same music and everything, but it just... ends after that.

Because Mike dieded.

Cruis'n Italy hacking Cruis'n Exotica.

But first need to be finished, is an half porting, have to be restored the missing trophy girl at the finish line (is currently in a different menu and isn't right), the missing starting girl, the missing GIB routine, the wildlife animation, the musics table have to be fixed with the all in the game and have to be not longer random when you start a race, restore the car reflection as example when you enter in the tunnel, the crowd at the finish line have to be inserted... This to do it without any silly censorship, but someone know how hack the race tracks? XD

Mega Man X, except that dashing is mapped to the most awkward button possible and you can't change it.

ROM hacks of really popular games, but various elements are shifted one tile to the left, just to fuck with your muscle memory.

Lately, I've been thinking of a DKC hack where it's all the same, except certain objects/enemies are removed/repositioned/replaced for the sake of maintaining flow.

Okay so this doesn't count, as I actually want this to happen, but Caesar 3 and the limits to the number of buildings and number of people on the map are expanded tenfold.

As it stands, Windows versions have it 1000-2000 for buildings & people, respectively, and Macs 2000-4000, but when the limit is reached the game starts to become unplayable and city growth stops. I would really, REALLY love to have a MASSIVE megatropolis.
