Mario's Greatest Adventure!
(Also, to anyone who's a "Tales of" fan, see if you can spot the reference xD)
So this is my first hack that I've started about 3 months ago, and that's the basic storyline so far. Note that these cutscenes arent final, as I havent figured out how to do stuff like add a background to them and such (since they have to be Layer 2 levels), and the world name is definitly going to be changed, I just couldnt find a good name for the world this takes place in. Unless ya'll want me to keep it...
Anyway, I plan this hack is going to be a mix of Vanilla and Chocolate in terms of levels, although most of the vanilla levels are going to have a chocolatish swirl here and there. I added a new ability for Mario (might add more), custom music, custom sprites, ExGFX, a custom boss, HDMA, and I plan for this hack's storyline to be on the same level as Jacob's The Essence Star (although I might be getting ahead of myself now).
So enough of all that, you want to see what I made, dont you? Here ya'll go:

-Adventure Begins!-

The start of the very first level, featuring some Map16 work, HDMA (Ice Man) and a Layer 3 Background (Lynnes)


Take that, Rex!


Whoa, Banzai Bill!


A small bonus room, consisting of your usual "hit P-Switch, and grab all the coins" gimmick. This room might be changed, however. (Also, the coin's graphics are edited a bit to look less...weird).

-The Wacky Forest-
(Nickname - Map16 fun).

The start of the second level, consisting of Tileset Mixing and a fitting Cluster Sprite (the leafs; thanks to Ladida).


Yep, the new ability is Wall Jump!


Just jumping around.


Oh geez!

-The Water Caves (name may be changed)-

This is where ExGFX really comes in. (And yep, the water and waterfalls are Exanimated).


Not today, Putin' Chuck!



Climbing a bit higher.


Slidin' around.

-A Lake Night Stroll-

Here's the thing for this level - if you know how to use Goonies to your advantage, you can get to areas with some extra coins/items that are just out of reach.


*Gasp* Is that..?


Its'a Raccon Mario time!


Nearing the end.

-Lava Castle- (not the actual name, as giving off the real name will give off spoilers)

A dark, gritty looking castle filled with lava with a fitting HDMA effect.


Just climbing along for my life!


Fire Bros, and...


...Sledge Bros!
Beyond that is an unfinished room and the first boss, so I'll stop here.

So there's a pretty good look at my work. I also have another level, but honestly I'm probably going to scrap it, as I'm not satisfied with it. Besides that, what's left before I finish World 1 is to add another level (mainly a story based one), actually MAKE the Overworld, and make the Switch Palace.

So, what do ya'll think? See anything you like? Dislike? I'm willing to hear it.

Very, very nice for a first hack.

The area with 2 sledge bros looks hard, but in general the screenshots looks nice.
Thank you! It's great to see people enjoy my work.

And about the Sledge Bros, you may be right. I may just take them out and do something else there.

Looks amazing so far... Absolutely nothing wrong that I want to see. :)
However, there is one pet peve of mine... I don't like the land graphics for the waterfall screens... but that's just me. Great job so far dude! :)

--------------------



Thanks!
And what is it you hate about the graphics for the cave, anyway? Well, I believe that'll be the only time I use that tileset, so dont worry about that.
This hack is going to be on hold for a couple days (thanks to Paper Mario), but I'll start it up back soon. I really appreciate the feedback I've been givin so far.

A-a-amazing!! And that for a first hack!? That Lake Night Stroll looks to nice!!! And i'm just amazed bout The Wacky Forest. I'll be watching this hack, can't wait for more!
Thank you, georgevssonic! It's great to have a follower now.

I'm sorry for responding without updating, but I have a question for everyone - how do you feel about the title? I'm asking since I'm thinking of keeping it, since it fits the hack's storyline, but I dont want people to think I'm ripping off Dakress' title for his hack - Mario's Redrawn Adventure or moltensnow's Mario's Epic Adventure. (This is the main reason why the name's not final at the moment).

Very nice. I love the lava GFX! ^.^

And that gradient looks soo colorful. Do you mind if I use it in my hack? I'll give credit. =0 It just looks so... amazing!

Mario in Mainland will be in the next C3.
Thank you. It's actually just the normal lava GFX, I just added HDMA to show that it's blazing hot.
And which one? The castle?

The very first level. But I just noticed it isn't truly yours, so I guess "borrow" isn't the right word.

Oh, you mean the HDMA in the first level? That's actually real HDMA.
Here's a link to the thread about it and a download of the full package by Ice Man. Note that this is more of a "chocolate" thing than a vanilla thing, incase you're making a vanilla hack (which seems you are), but it shouldnt be a big deal, I think.

Well, I know that. Technically only my first world is Vanilla, everything else is different. xP

Thanks. Good work on your hack! =)

About the name; It's ok. But you could pick something that discribes the whole hack in just 3 words or something. What does your hack focus on? Does it have anything that only THIS hack has? Try to pick a title that realy fits this piece of epic!!
The hack looks quite good, I like the style it has. Nice use of HDMA too.

And a little suggestion, make the thread title shorter, so that it doesn't stretch the tables.

Nah, Its fine with me, there are a lot of adventure styled names in these days.
Ah, sorry Aqualakitu.

And that's good to hear, Dakress. I was thinking on making the title screen next, so I just wanted to be sure if the title was fine by you.

--------------------
Mario's Greatest Adventure! <- My hack thread, where I make magic.
Because I don't know what you're talking about.

--------------------
It has been a while.
not knowing what someone is talking about is no reason to hate them. Just ask. You better watch it, you've just barely started on this site and I can already see you being the most hated user.

Anyways, I think the hack looks nice. The only thing that bothers me is the blue ground in the mushroom place.
