The Legend of the Mystical Ninja - Horohoro Temple by Anorakun

File Name: The Legend of the Mystical Ninja - Horohoro Temple
Submitted: by Anorakun
Obsoletes: Ganbare Goemon - Bamboo Forest
Authors: Anorakun
Type: Ripped
Purpose: Foreground
Description: A complete (almost) rip of the first stage from Ganbare Goemon : Yuuki Hime Kyuushitsu Esaki, lit. "The Rescue of Princess Yuki", or The Legend of the Mystical Ninja.

Unlike the old rip in this site, who had a messy map 16 and a worse sample level, almost everything here was ripped manually, with the exception of the tree and the ruined walls, because in those I used the bitmap pasting feature, and then I rearranged the tiles manually in Lunar Magic. This rip took me two days to get it right. Perfect fit for haunted levels, since in the original game, it's used in a level with flaming ghosts, flying umbrellas, skeleton warriors and zombies.


- Main ground;
- Ruined walls;
- Bamboo;
- Bamboo Spikes;
- Tombstones;
- Trees;
- Grass;
- Logs;
- A "Shrine" of sorts. I also included the bell from the original game;
- Lanterns;


-ExAnimation. I couldn't figure out a way of making it look good in Super Mario World;
- Some gravestones, logs and grass tiles;

Uses three palette rows (2,4 and 5). Two EXGFX files (FG3 and BG2).

Credit would be great, but is optional.
Major Reason(s):
  • Map16 background
    The sample level's background is entirely default tiles, which should be a simple enough fix but on top of that...

Minor Reason(s):
  • Unused colors in palette
    Palette 3 in the sample level has a lot of changed colors that aren't actually used by the graphics.

    Odd tile behavior
    There are a few similar looking tiles that don't behave as they apparently should, namely one of the flat roof tiles (which acts like an air tile even though it's about as wide as the others), a few ground tiles that act like air, and one background decoration that acts like a cement block.

    Double check your tile properties with ctrl+f2 to make sure everything is behaving as it should.

Aside from those gripes, this is a solid submission! A few fixes should let it be accepted just fine.
