Q: It's just a difficult rom hack to make up for bad level design
A: First, that's not a question.
Second, I don't think may people would agree with that. Kaizo Mario is difficult, yes; however, it's brillant it's design. Kaizo Mario shines above other difficult Mario rom hacks because it's designed to focus more on the player's skill and knowledge of Super Mario World than the player's ability to exploit any bugs or glitches in the game. The only cheap deaths come from invisible coin blocks; every other death can be reasonably avoided with enough skill (and savestate abuse.)
If the game is too hard for you to play I recommend playing through the original Super Mario World first.

Q: Is there an English version of Kaizo Mario?
A: No. However, you don't need to know any Japanese to play Kaizo Mario. The goal in each level is, "Get to the goal line at the end of the level."
