Sorry for reviewing this so lately after making the video for the hack. I was busy with a lot of other things, like school. At least I've made the review of the hack.
I like this hack pretty much. It has some interesting graphics, nice aesthetics and decent level design. It is interesting in a lot of parts while there is some issues regarding level design. I'm gonna list them below:
There was some minor slowdown in 1-4, but it isn't horrendous, although it's the best if slowdown doesn't occur in any hack.
Most challenges were fair and pretty fun. I only have a complaint about this part:
As you can see, it's pretty annoying to spinjump on a grinder. You can't see the spikes while playing the game and if you play the hack for the first time, you may get tricked by them. Be careful with the things like that. You should make the part easier. If you notice something harmful you can't see while playing the game, use one of two solutions:
- This patch
- remove the harmful things
3) Yoshi coin count
1-4 only has 4 Yoshi coins. Even after looking it up in Lunar Magic, I wasn't able to find the 5th one. Keep in mind all the levels that utilize Yoshi coins should have 5 in each.
And one thing you may take into consideration:
If there had been no barrier, I wouldn't have known the platform isn't unforgiving. Stay cautious of putting platforms on the lowest row of the level, unless you use the mentioned patch.
My rate: 4/5. I will give you 5 stars on your final product if the whole hack is as entertaining as this demo and there's no such issues.
This is a Really promising Hack.
It looks great, has some cool bosses and is Pretty long for a Demo which is Great, because there are so many hacks which did Not get finished.
I Hope you could do a Complete Hack. It would be Amazing!
