New Super Hacker Bros. is a dead New Super Mario Bros. hack created by  ray and  Freeze. It concentrated on textures and level design. The hack was started on December 21, 2010 after both  ray and  Freeze had managed to put a rainy FG effect into the game through changing the textures of the fire FG effect. The hack was pronounced dead on April 30, 2012 due to ROM corruption. Two betas were released before its death.

1. Production

After successfully putting a rain FG effect into New Super Mario Bros., the creators,  ray and  Freeze, decided to make a hack filled with epic ideas that nobody would have thought of. Many graphics were taken from New Super Mario Bros. Wii and put into the hack. They gave it the name New Super Hacker Bros., with Hacker Bros. representing  ray and  Freeze. Due to great feedback on the first beta from players and testers alike, they decided to continue the hack. The interest in this hack grew so fast that it got a blog on wordpress, where news was posted regularly.

Eventually the creators had lost interest and the hack's quality suffered for it. After a long time of doing nothing, they decided to bring it back to life. The hack had made more progress again, with it gaining a YouTube channel, a Facebook page, and a new Blog.

After some time, a terrible mistake was done when importing graphics. Nearly all of the 2D graphics in the ROM messed up, the game started to crash, and the nail in the coffin was that there were no backups made prior.  ray and  Freeze discontinued the hack due to the amount of work needed to repair it, fixing every little crash and re-importing every GFX. It was pronounced dead on April 30, 2012 to the dismay of its fans.

2. Level Design

Similar to Nintendo's level design, every level in this hack has its own idea. The hack tries to represent new ideas that have not already been in New Super Mario Bros.. An average level contains only two or three different groups of sprites, as otherwise it would be too overfilled and more level-themes would be in one level.

In New Super Hacker Bros., every level has two or more hidden bonus rooms. These contain coins, 1-UPs and Star Coins. The player must put some time into playing this hack to find all of them.
