Tip: A common level trope to avoid is "item babysitting". This involves forcing the player to carry P-Switches, springboards, or other items all around the level. Usually, this doesn't end up being very fun or engaging, so use another level gimmick if you can.

Version 0.6.8 has arrived.

None of the planned features are coming in yet due to complications, but this version boasts level fixes and a new intro, complete with new ASM.

That is not supposed to happen. I'll fix it in the next version.

Both messages say the same thing on purpose, but I'll replace the second with a cement block later.

One easy Bullet Bill ride, and the rest only some Kooper and springboard jumps.


That IS pretty boring. I see your point.

And I don't know why you put the midway point and the two red shells in the level they don't seem to be usefull at all, at least you need the P-Switch to complete the level.


The midway point is supposed to trick you into getting it and then becoming stuck.

The red shells are needed to get through the turn blocks.

Wait, how did you get past the turn blocks WITHOUT them?

Originally posted by ordi
Besides that get rid of the 1-Ups and some of the unnecessary Koopers, because otherwise some of the Koopers don't seem to appear and so you can't beat the level anymore.


Okay. The 1-Ups are useless anyways.

Even though it's not perfect, the level is still better than most of the average Muncher Hacks so I would like to play the other levels as well. :)


Man, I wish everyone ELSE felt that way.

That link is to an outdated video of Daizo Dee Von trying (and failing) the first level.

Ironically, there are no dislikes.

Thank you all for supporting me and my hack, and I hope you all appreciate the final version.

Have a good day!

Wait, do you mean getting all 96 exits or just beating the game without shortcuts?

There are many different ways one can beat the game.

If two paths have the same number of levels in them, does either one count as a shortcut?

It really wouldn't matter in that case, would it?

Make sure you've completely deleted the Yellow Switch Palace from its original position.

If you're unable to fix it, then integrate it into the overworld.

You could also check if it's removed in Layer 1 AND 2.

I wish more people read threads like this before commenting on hacks.

"Reviews" like that are just plain wrong.

The hack played out okay for the most part. Nothing was really wrong with it per se, but it was too short and had some common, fixable errors.


Wait, it was too short?

There's nothing wrong with a short game.

Back in the NES days, games were usually only a handful of levels.

Originally posted by cstutor89

Mostly in the realm of too few enemies (in certain dead areas), bad midway point palettes, bad text, a few too many power-ups (particularly in level 1) and some strange choices in design.

SS 2. The spacing is bad here, remove "auto-spacing". Also the text is kind of bad, change to "Bowser has kidnapped the Princess. He requested a ransom of 1,000,000 coins, but Mario is stingy and he refused"

SS 3. Wording is bad and the auto-spacing thing. Here "There is just a blue switch, but what is it used for?"

SS 15. More text problems. "Thanks for playing this demo. Drake and Iggy Koopa thank you. To Be Continued, Drake"



The text looks fine. Besides, it has only a small effect on the game.

Originally posted by cstutor89

SS 4. Enable Vertical Scrolling at Free Will here.

SS 5. Amazingly these blocks don't cooperate here. Use destroyable blocks with shells not turnable blocks.

SS 6. I can't collect this 1-Up for some reason...

SS 11. This doesn't look right

SS 12. Hilariousness

SS 13. Awfully dead without enemies.


SS 16. Why do I have 1-Keyhole Lives? (It's supposed to be a 9).

I agree with ya there, but it's not too bad.

Originally posted by cstutor89

SS 7-9. Bad Midway Point Palettes.
SS 17. Bad palettes on the Yoshi eating a berry:


Those look fine to me.

Originally posted by cstutor89

SS 10. Never found a usage for this Springboard.


So?

Originally posted by cstutor89

SS 14. Was something supposed to be up there with the Used Blocks?


Don't know, don't care.

Originally posted by cstutor89

It's a good start but it needs more substance to be considered something acceptable. I'm denying the other version too because it is the same except for the fact that it is in a different language.


I think it's acceptable as a demo, but it still needs a tad of work before it can be fully released.

Like I said before, nothing wrong with a short game.

Anyways, how about you guys? Seen any dumb people? Let's talk about some of the dumbest people ever.

Post a video, picture, or story below.


Both of those videos were clearly staged.

If they weren't staged, how come there's footage?

Besides, people see issues as reflected through their own personal beliefs.

For example, Wii is better than Xbox.

If you are an Xbox fan and you are reading this, you will probably disagree with the above statement.

If you like the Xbox a lot, you will likely think of me as an idiot for suggesting that the Wii is better.

All humans are biased in this manner. It's merely a matter of degree.

I don't have it, but you should still work on the original.

Falsehood. Working off a base can help you shape and mold your ideas into a suitable level. Starting from scratch is just more bothersome.

He should work off a base because he knows what he's aiming for in that hack.

If he starts a new hack, he'll aim for something else and it will ultimately be harder to make it acceptable.

Originally posted by Ladida
Alternatively, just let it die, forget it ever existed, and work on something new and better (which i hope you're doing)


If he can't find the hack, that would be okay with me.

I find the diversity great. It's nice to hear varying styles.

I mean, you'd like diversity in a hack, right?

As for me, I didn't need to download anything other than the M3U file.

It's a shame that not many people tuned in. It really is.

I wish the radio was on all day long. It is truly auditory gold.
