Custom Banjo-Kazooie Level

If you too are a fan of Banjo-Kazooie, then you'll definitely like this. Some folks over at Rarewarecentral have made their own custom Banjo-Kazooie world. This new winter themed world is called Snow Glow Village. It's a fun little level that has 10 jiggies, 100 notes, 6 honeycomb pieces and one more secret, all for you to find. This new world comes in the form of a patch that can be applied to a Banjo-Kazooie ROM. Once the patch has been applied, you can then play this new level on an emulator, or even better, on a flashcart. Yes this is compatible with Everdrive 64. Don't worry; you don't need to be an expert hacker to get it running. Be sure to check out our Patch Section for the patch and patching tool.

Now I don't want to spoil too much, but I'll give you a quick preview of the game here.

When you get the game going, you'll see the normal Rareware logo and Buzzbomb enemy, but right after that you'll immediately be put at the start of the level.

The level has you explore a large area outside, a cave off to the side, and you'll also go in the center house a few times. The world's main theme is an un-used version of Freezeezy Peak composed by the game's original composer, Grant Kirkhope.

The level is actually a very nice size. If I had to rate the world on its difficulty, I'd say it's about the same level as Mumbo's Mountain. It's not too difficult and fans should take about 10-15 minutes to finish it.

Very special thanks to the people who made the hack:
