Sorry for the delay, I'm busy lately with a lot of stuff. With that said, I gotta say, world 8 was easier than world 7, at least, in my experience. There's only one particular stage that was hard. So, before I talk about things that need to be fixed, I'll say about some stuff I liked.
Stuff I liked
I forgot to tell you, but I really found this boss to be very neat and creative. Simple and intuitive to fight. Great job!
SPECIAL RICE FIELDS
Really neat use of one of my rips. But here's a suggestion for the level to look even better: adjust the palette. The grainy pattern of the ground fits nicely with the background, but the fences and flowers looks off. Here is a image of the original game
, so you can have a idea of which tone of colors to use. You don't need to change the graphics, only adjusting the color would make the FG + BG perfect.
TAKIYAKI VOLCANO 3
Really creative gimmick. I find it to be very fun and challenging, so excellent job at that.
THINGS THAT NEED SOME IMPROVEMENT
UNFUNNY FISH ROUTE
Fix the color of berries at end of the level. The green of the bushes does not match the green surrounding the berry. Also, sorry, I confused Quagmire Quirks with Unfunny Fish Route in the last playtesting.
TAKIYAKI VOLCANO 3
You did write very well this message box, but there's a small error there. "Will you" is only used in interrogative sentences, the correct would be "you will". Aside from that, the gimmick is well explained, so good job at that.
While it looks okay, I think you should add some yellow / orange outlines near the lava to make it look a bit better. Some lava bubbles exanimation would help too.
BOB-OMB BATTLEFIELD AND INVIDIARY MEADOWS
I think you could make the green of the grass looks more closer to the background.
UNSEEN WIND OF DEATH
While it's a neat gimmick, I found it a bit nerve-wracking. If you can add a subtle hint, like a simple shadow or something, that would make this level more enjoyable for me. Not exactly a flaw per se, more like a suggestion.
You can fix it with this simple patch
. Make sure to always backup your project before inserting patches, though.
Like I said before, please make the big dino guys immune to fireballs, so the players must be careful and use the jump to defeat them.
I suggest you use this overworld player
for Waluigi. It has both Wario and Waluigi. Or you can use this overworld player
too. Choose which one best fits your hack.
And well, that's all I have to say. You don't need to follow the palette improvements that I suggested, but they will make some of your levels look more beautiful.
