I remember playing your Demo of The Creator
way back then and I remember that i really enjoyed it too. Your demo takes a lot of ideas from it and I really like it.
The levels, overworld and general presentation was really amazing. The story, while rather weird, is really nicely done as well.
I noticed one small display error though:
when the player collects one of the carrots (aka yoshi coin equivalents), the icon in the statusbar still is a coin. It's not hard to change though and I assume you'd change it eventually anyways.
Overall this hack is looking really promising and I'm definetly keeping an eye on this for future updates!
(btw you should consider using .bps instead of .ips in the future)
