[Demo/Proof-of-Concept] Extra Mario World OR Maritroid (FIRST PIPE FIXED! REDOWNLOAD!)
Forum Index - Sunken Ghost Ship - C3 Museum - Spring 2012 - [Demo/Proof-of-Concept] Extra Mario World OR Maritroid (FIRST PIPE FIXED! REDOWNLOAD!)
Pages: « 1 »
EDIT: PLEASE REDOWNLOAD! THE ELEVATOR IS NOT ALL THERE IS IN THE DEMO! I have fixed the entrance for the very first pipe, so now you can see the rest of what I made!

So! For the past six days, I've been working hard to bring you a short proof-of-concept of sorts for an idea I had:

Extra Mario Bros. in SMW with more features.

And so I give you:



EXTRA MARIO WORLD (or Maritroid)




(<-- Mario's going DOWN here, not up!)

So far, Extra Mario World (or Maritroid) has only one powerup, Technical Fire. I was hoping I'd have enough time to get at least up to Super Fire, so people could play around with it as their end-of-demo gift, but I just didn't have the time. Making that elevator work took a lot of time out of me. But, it's finished. (Well, sorta; it glitches out when going back up after taking it down. But I'll fix that post-C3!) And hey, at least you got one powerup, right? :D Also, the Save Rooms don't work; I focused all my time on the elevator and general design of the rooms. lol. Also, the demo isn't that long, hence why I call it more a proof-of-concept; it really should only take you a few minutes to get to the elevator, which is where it ends. Oh, and as for that Star Block? I don't think I have time to do what I want to do with it, which is the same as Extra Mario Bros.: you hit it and out comes your special powerup.

Now, what are my plans for the future of this? First off, we take four out of the five powerups from Extra Mario Bros. and add them here: Technical Fire, Super Fire, Ultra Fire, and Space Jump (actually a double jump). We'll also throw in some new powerups:

-Magic Spring, which would basically act like the super jump abilities from recent Castlevania games by spawning a floating springboard beneath you, but only once before you have to land.
-The TRUE Space Jump.
-Perhaps more?? (SPOILER: read the messages from the OW editor for some ideas I have)

Second, the Keys may or may not return. They'll probably mostly be rewards for beating bosses if I choose to add them. Yes! You read that right! BOSSES! There'll be one boss per Area, each will need to be defeated to reach the final area. (SPOILER: The final boss is Wart. not really) There may also be minibosses thrown about here and there...

Lastly, I'd like to make this hack feel Metroid-like. If people TAS it and/or break whatever sequence I put in, and people greatly enjoy it because of this, I will be happier than you could imagine!

Download from the link above!

To close up my thread, I leave this message for System and her supporters:

I DEFECT, SUCKERS! I'VE BEEN GIVING CHESTER AND HIS ARMY INFORMATION FROM THE VERY BEGINNING! HAHAHA!

Ironic that you would make a thread that advances system's cause.

Also that looks amazing.

That elevator is awesome. If only it flickered like the Metroid ones! The idea feels solid and you've got the coding ability to make it possible. I'm really looking forward to seeing what you can do with this!

I sorta did that with ExAnimation. It more glows than flickers, though. If you open the ROM and check Level 032's tiles in the 8x8 editor, you'll see I also have some frames drawn for the flickering like in Zero Mission!

TRS: I'd appreciate it if you would give me a better comment than that. :/

I found thsi extremely funny =D

Anywho, I like it. It's like a better version of a Screen Scrolling Pipe. Never played Metroid before, though, so don't know what exactly these are used for.
This is really something. I like this idea.

What will you be doing about the overworld map? As cool as it is, won't Mario some-what clash with the smaller box map (Metroid)?

I haven't downloaded it yet to see it in person but this sounds pretty cool.

I'll either give Mario a different sprite or hide him altogether. I have different plans for the OW map, though... ;)

EDIT:

AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHH

NO FREAKING WONDER NO ONE'S COMMENTING OR VOTING FOR MY DEMO FOR ANYTHING!

I MESSED UP THE PIPE, IT GOES TO THE WRONG LEVEL!

THIS should work as intended! Everyone, PLEASE redownload!

And here I was expected something related to Touhou...dammit.

Anyway, this really is a neat concept, and everything is looking very nice so far as well. Hoping to see more!

Ah, this was because I was mostly skimming threads at the time, since I was working on a project at the time. I didn't get into too many details.

I'll edit this with more detailed comments once I play the demo in a minute.

(Also I'll admit that when I first saw this thread during C3 I thought you'd figured out a way to add an extra submap or whatnot. #w{=P})

But there's a reason the title says "OR Maritroid"! D:

It's a take on Extra Mario Bros., but I dunno if I want to call it Extra Mario World, to continue that, or Maritroid, the play on words the ROM is named as. :/

ZMann: NOT THE FORCE LIGHTNING D:

How did the title make you expect Touhou? (spoiler: I was originally thinking of calling it Phantasm Mario Bros. as a play on both Extra Mario Bros. and Touhou, so I don't blame you) I thought most people here knew of Extra Mario Bros...

I have to suggest that the technical fire (or whatever it's called) gives you fiery mario status, because each time I reached it I was small and it's "required" for the next room. (in quotes because I could easily make it to the switch while small)



Also I was able to clear this section (while small) with an apparently-perfectly-timed jump, as I haven't been able to reproduce it:




EDIT: also the pipe in level 25 that leads via secondary exit back to level 1 is broken and leads to level 100 instead, despite appearing correctly in LM. /shrug
♪♫♩♬
Strange. I just tested the pipe in 25 leading back to 1 twice, and neither time did it take me to the bonus game. Also, I'm not going to have Technical Fire give Fire Mario status, since there's a ? Block about two rooms back that has one. I WILL, however, place a ? Block with a fire flower in the room containing the switch! (From what I hear, though, the switch can be triggered without a fireball; this is unintentional.)

As for the area you cleared while small: nope, not fixing it! There's a reason the title says "OR Maritroid". :3 If people use that to break whatever sequence I set up, GOOD! :D Let them do it! For me to do what I can to stop people from breaking out of a specific sequence would just destroy my entire plan!

Same thing happened to me as well, lowering the pipe down one tile seems to fix the problem though. Anyway, I enjoyed what you've got so far, and I hope to play more in the future. Just from knowing what metroid is like (from videos/LPs, haven't actually played any of the games myself) I was already trying to find hidden passages in the walls and I hope that this game will be full of them. Are you putting in custom music, because listening to the standard cave music does get boring after awhile.

Alright, I lowered the pipe a tile. I don't get why you two were having the problem, but I wasn't, though.

Don't worry, DP! I'll have hidden passages in the walls. ;) I'm just...trying to figure out how best to do it. I mean, if I just do it like Extra Mario Bros. did it, people will scream "OMG CUTOFF D:<" and my hack might get removed, or at best, 5/10 or so. Just for massive amounts of cutoff to remain true to the style. :/

As for custom music, absolutely! I already commissioned a new port of a song from Wario Land just for this hack. ;) And tbh, I really want a different song for the first area than the SMW cave song. What I had in mind with the area was Super Metroid's Brinstar, the underground-forest area in specific, so I'd like a song fitting of that theme, but I don't know what to use. Any suggestions?
