This is the 2nd demo made of my hack Thunderstruck Mario. It's a vanilla styled hack that uses custom music and a small amount of other custom content. There is 3 complete worlds to explore in this version. Also, there is one extra level as a special preview of what's to come after that.
Story: Mario and Peach are taking a plane ride to Delfino Island for a peaceful vacation. All was peaceful till a giant storm formed out of nowhere, critically damaging the plane. It was too much and they had to make a crash-landing on a nearby island. A little later, Mario regained consciousness, and had noticed that Peach had gone. She was not amongst the plane wreckage anywhere. Fearing the worst, Mario goes off to explore the island, in the hope that he'll find Peach, and perhaps along the way, figure out the mystery behind the extreme climate of this region.
I hope you all enjoy playing this demo. If you have any questions/comments, feel free to PM me.
The design is well done. This hack aims to a traditional way of designing, sometimes with multiple paths to take and secret bonus sublevels. While it doesn't do any extreme fancyness, it's enjoyable to play, maybe it can be just a little bit repetitive around the world 3. But again, it was a fun one.
Aesthetics are pretty good as well. It's a vanilla hack, no custom graphics or edits; the work with the palettes is pretty well done in most of the levels. Nothing much to say.
Some issues I found:
- "Subterranean Extra" kills you instantly by making you fall in a pit.
- The first level has a door in the first screen leading you to a probable unfinished sublevel. The only way out of it is by killing yourself.
