Alright, so I was going to try and get a demo ready before this event, but I was busy with IRL stuff so that's not going to happen.
So the story for this hack is that the Mushroom Kingdom is being targeted by an unknown threat, and to make matters worse, the Mario Bros aren't around to take care of this. So it is up to Princess Peach to take care of this.
As mentioned in the story, yes you will be playing Peach in this hack.There won't be any powerups in this hack. Instead, she will have her floating ability from SMB2 and she'll also have the charge jump from SMB2. This hack will also feature a health system and for every castle you beat, your max health will go up.
Here are some screenshots to show you:
Peach's Castle also tutorial stuff:
This tutorial level is sill being worked but I thought I show a screenshot of it
Adventure Starts Now:
This hack also uses smb2's throwing mechanics, which lead to me using the 32x32 patch.
Bullet Hell 1:
That's all I'm going to show off so far. I got more to come. Tell me what you think.
I generally like SMB3 styled hacks. Playing as peach and having the SMB2 throwing mechanic certainly makes it more interesting. I'm looking forward how this will eventually turn out. From the screenshots it looks quite good so far. Especially the Bullet Hell 1 levels seems interesting to me
Blah Blah Blah Generic Cave Level(Yes, that's the name.):
So here's how these Peach blocks work; Peach herself can pass through them, but all the other sprites cannot. There will also be ones with a red X on it and it's vice versa.
Here are the ones with the red X that I was talking about
Oh and you need that chuck to break those orange blocks (He only bottom though and I don't know why exactly)
Boom Boom's Fancy Fortress
So here's the Boom Boom fight. The interesting thing about this fight is that when he starts flying up, you can use the charge jump to get up to him to land a hit. You can also wait for him to land if you want to play it safe.
That's all for now. I got one more to show off but I'll do that later. Let me what you guys think.
Thanks guys; and yeah it does suck I wasn't able to get a demo for this event but I am close top completing world 1 so I might be able to get a demo submitted before the month is over. (Though I can't promise on that.)
Anyways. here's the last level I want to showoff
Thrill Rides 1:
That's all I have to show. Tell what you guys think.
From what's been shown so far, I can say that this hack certainly looks interesting, and the same can be said about its premise. Adding SMB2 mechanics is also a very fitting choice, since you do play as Peach, whose playability hails from said game.
On another note, I really do appreciate the SMB3 graphics you'll be sticking with! I know that it tends to be a popular choice with chocolate hacks, but the way they look here among the nice aesthetics just feel unique to me. The levels themselves also look to be quite fun too. This is for sure another project in works I'll be awaiting in the near future!
Hey, this hack is looking really good!
It's cool to see a hack where we play with a different protagonist, even more when it also has some new mechanics to make the gameplay fresh!
I'm really liking what i see in these screenshots. The levels seem really interesting, and it also seems to make extensive use of the new gameplay mechanics.
Also, i really dig the SMB3 aesthetics in this one!
I definitely look forward to a possible demo release.
