The thwomp boss is definitely overused, and, as for the goomba, there is a easy fix(without custom sprites!!!). All you need to do is tweak the sprite with tweaker. Set it to be killed when stomped, though the stomped form uses the koopa wing graphics when stomped, which you can fix with ExGFX.
This is the thread of my kaizo hack, Mini Kaizo. Each level is short, but still hard. Here is a screenshots of the first level:
all I have is the first level, but I have started working on the second. The overworld will not be edited for quite a while, or not at all. also, the second exit will probably be changed to be a secret exit, though at the moment it doesn't send you anywhere else.
also, tell me if the palette needs to be changed, and if you want to download it, here it is: http://db.tt/chltsyE (<- I think I fixed the problems with dropbox and you should be able to download it now)
At first I wanted to keep a key at the place where the (?) was and have bring it down below to the keyhole would be which is where the vine is.
do you think I should keep it like this?
looks nice, I really like the player graphics... they seem to remind me of super mario galaxy . Also, why call it mario other M? It's not at all (as far as I can see) like metriod: other M. Status bar could use a bit of a palette change, the white doesn't seem to fit in with the blue. All in all, looks really good.
I don't see how you could get up there to shell jump... you couldn't unless you had a cape. Anyways, I added a powerup house, which can only be used once. It holds two powerups, and a bunch of coins.
here is a screenie:
that other pipe leads to the second part, which holds powerups. Please tell me if this is a bad idea.
Also, here is a screenie of the unfinished second level:
It's still not working. I'll try compiling it into a .bin file and see if that works... and It doesn't.
I think I got a bad version of blocktool super deluxe.
Is code for BTSD blocks diffrent than the code for blktool blocks?
Cool. I liked the NSMB pipe grahpics, but the small player graphics look really bad. It looks like all you did was put it in photo shop and made it smaller. Big mario graphics look really good though, were they ripped from SMB:BIS(super mario bros: bowser's inside story)?
