Best SNES ROMhacks


ROMhacks are hacked/modded versions of old games. Some games get minor tweaks such as retranslations or simple gameplay improvements, others get complete overhauls that completely transform the original game. Below I have constructed a list of the best SNES ROMhacks available today.


Super Mario World


Super Metroid


Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past


Zombies Ate My Neighbors


Chrono Trigger




Super Mario Kart


Super Mario RPG


Super Mario World 2+

Super Mario World 2


Final Fantasy VI: A Brave New Worlds

Final Fantasy VI


Honorable Mentions

There are many, many more ROMhacks available for SNES, so I’ve also gone through Emuparadise’s search filter and come up with a list of the top 100 most downloaded ROMhacks directly from them. You can also download most of all the games listed above, plus many more, all at once here.

To create your own ROMhacks, google search:

Lunar Magic (Super Mario World world editor)
SMILE (Super Metroid world editor)

Oh and one more thing! Did you know you can flash these roms on ACTUAL SNES carts? You can find them preflashed on ebay pretty easily!

    Nice to see one of the NG+ mods making a “best mod” list. It’s truly a beast of a mod!

    I only wish to point out that “Brave New World” is typoed as “A Brave New Worlds” in the article.
