Holy crap, I haven't been here in a while! I guess it's time for a status update.
First of all, I've ported to a new ROM that uses PIXI. Currently, that's causing huge issues mostly involving Hammer Bros and variants, issues that I really
hate trying to fix.
Second of all, I've managed to finish four
(4) levels! I'll share them now, because why not?
Lemon Resort (Disco Resort Zone):
True to its name, this level has lots of disco koopa shells. Watch out!
Yes, this is a sort-of puzzle level, I guess.
Another puzzle, showing off more of the new block designs I've been working on.
After that comes some tricky platforming, which leads outside the tower...
Oh, hey there, moles. How's it going?
After that, we have a Reznor battle to wrap up the beach section of world 3! Now I only have the sky section to finish.
Lime Skies 1 (Revenge of the Springshrooms):
New power-up time! This time it's the SMB3 Raccoon Leaf.
Oh, and the level introduces Sumo Bros and Super Koopas, too.
And, it can't be the Revenge of the Springshrooms without the shrooms themselves! Come on, guys!
This part is rather chaotic.
I'm planning to expand the size of Lime Skies 1, because it's only a little half-level compared to the next couple.
Lime Skies 2 (Explosive Skyway):
This level is pretty true to its name, too. The Bob-Ombs are introduced here.
Oh, but what have we here? Looks like it's the Kirby-style bomb blocks that I nearly teared my hair out getting to work!
No Bullet Bills here, instead we have our second new face, Banzai Bills!
Bomb Bros, too. This part is pretty chaotic.
Lime Skies 3 (Ascension Shrine):
In this level, Mario dies.
However, he gets to go to heaven, where there are Cape Feathers (yay!) and Venus Fire Traps (boo!).
Also introduced here are the yellow "shower" Venus Fire Traps. Stay clear of them.
Heaven wouldn't be complete without death lasers, right? Stay clear of those, too.
And finally, collect this golden mushroom to un-die! Yay!
Okay, that was a thing. I'm hoping to actually continue with this hack, and here's the levels coming up soon...
Yogurt Bridge (???): In between Lime Skies 2 and 3. I have no idea what to do for this one.
Lime Skies 4 (Lofty Falls): A level featuring floating islands, with waterfalls and bubbles of water you can swim in.
Lime Skies 5 (???): A really cloudy level with climbable beanstalks and new Foos as enemies.
THE QUEST TO RAISE THE POST COUNT
you have no idea how close new smb snes is to dying
