El Dorado intended to be fun and fair while still being challenging. The hack features 11 levels with a unique visual style and focus on being around 30-45 seconds per section before getting a midway or beating the level. Trolls in the game are light hearted and used sparingly.
This hack features:
- Soundtrack with nine new ports that I've done myself, including two original songs I wrote.
- No boss fights.
- No secret exits, all secrets are shoutouts to some of the streamers I enjoy watching or memes.
- Some chocolate in the form of custom blocks, custom sprites and some level specific gimmicks.
- Quality of life patches such as frame rule, spin throw direction, dtothefourth's retry system featured in Mostly Harmless and more.
Shoutouts to Wakana for making the awesome music porting tutorial on this site, I would not have been able to learn to port without that!
I really hope you enjoy the hack and good luck!
-Adjusted volume on various songs
-Nerfed a section to make it more accessible for worn in dpads
-Changed indication slightly in multiple sections
-Fixed multiple graphical issues
Fantastic hack. Each level feels incredibly polished in terms of both visuals and level design. I love the emphasis on fluid platforming, rather than performing discrete "tricks" that everyone has already done before.
Level 2 felt like a bit of a difficulty spike, but it should be manageable for anyone who was able to get through level 1. My favorite levels were the poison mushroom level, the sunset level, and admiral snackbar.
This is a great hack to get your feet wet with intermediate kaizo. There's no jank, minimal trolls, and you can save your midways - making it a very player-friendly experience.
What a great hack, from aesthetics to the smoothness of every level. Set ups are super clean and easy to read, sections are a good length never feeling like you over stayed your welcome in any level! Highly recommend this hack if you haven't given it a go! Can't wait for more of your creations!
I don't know how you made it so fun, even for people not yet at this skill level! I have to grind the levels a decent bit, but they don't get boring/repetitive and the music is amazing. I even enjoy re-playing/beating the previous levels again while learning/practicing the next ones. Really well done!
This is a stunning debut from MmBeefStew, showing a maturity and thoughtfulness of design that we used to only see from creators who’d been around for years. Not only is the technical design nearly flawless, but there’s clearly been a lot of attention to aesthetics, too, producing some very nice and unique environments. It’s still early in the year, but I’d be quite surprised if this won’t be considered one of the best hacks of 2021.
