Tip: When making your overworld, mix the terrain up! Add decorations to the overworld. Don't leave large empty grass or sea regions. As an example, angled land and multiple colors look much more interesting than square land and flat, plain colors.
This hack was so much fun. Fair in terms of difficulty, definitely lower intermediate cuz of the short sections. I really liked how the difficulty ramped up in the late game but i felt that the final castle was too easy for a "final castle", still fun though. The only thing i wasnt a fan of was the boss, only because it was also way too easy. Otherwise really good job and i look forward to the next one!
All people who contributed to the hack should be credited, I know it's a little annoying putting the creator of every single resource into your credits, but at the end of the day they did contribute to the hack in a meaningful way.
Since this was going for a "tutorial" kind of thing, an explanation for key jumps and motor skills would have been nice for actual new players.
Far too many shell jumps for a true beginner hack, beginners really struggle with shell jumps.
All in all it was a fun little romp, keep up the good work!
Hi I found the levels to be kinda repetitive with the obstacles not only repeating in single levels but also being 1:1 the same in other levels. Thanks for the info box explaining me the throwblock but not the motor skills Kappa
edit: no asm creators were shouted out in the credits, that's not nice
Hi! Even in the update, the "Icey Shells" level doesn't have a method of dying at the beginning of the level. I saw a streamer playing and destroying the shell, causing it to get stuck in the level. It's not an intentional softlock, because the shell has no usage limit, but the streamer ended up having to reset the game. Other than that, very good hack!
