Tip: Remaking levels from other Mario games is strongly discouraged, especially popular ones (World 1-1 from SMB or SMB3, for example), as their over-presence in Mario games, official or not, often makes them uninteresting to play.

Ubber Mario World (demo 2.0)

Hi guys. I just started making a new romhack of my own called Ubber Mario World (or at least that's the name it has for now). A couple of weeks ago I submitted the Ver. 1.1 of my demo. But after seeing lots of rejected hacks and the new 2009 Submission Guidelines, I decided to remove it from SMW Central and fine tune it a bit.

Now in version 2.0 I almost re-did the entire first world levels because I thought the older ones I had were just silly and not SMW Central material. So following some of the tips from the page I did them all again. So far I have 10 levels done and I think I will make a demo of these. Right now I need to know if I'm doing a good job or if I'm just screwing up big time. So any feedback is more than welcome.

So before I officially submit my demo to the page I would like for you guys to "Beta Test" it and comment on what I'm doing wrong or suggestions for my next levels.

This is the link for the Demo... HERE.

It has 10 playable stages.

-Island Groove
-Yoshi's Shack (this not a level but it is changed, check it out)
-Island Forest
-P Switch Bridges
-Giant Mushroom Lake
-Island Castle
-Ubber Plains
-Great Plains Cave
-Yellow Switch Place
-Green Switch Place

Here are some screenies from the game:

I'll just point a few down-sides:
1. The overworld is not changed.
2. The underground part of the 2nd level has a monty mole that when he jumps he goes up into the ceiling then dances in there for no reason.
3. I saw a bit of cut-off-ness in a few parts of the P-switch bridges.
4. The castle's first part is a remake of a Mario 1 level. Please change.
5. The room before the boss looks like it hasn't been edited that much.
6. Ubber Plains is a remake of Level 1-1/Level 1-2. Change.
7. The level 1-2 part had Piranha Plants that had stems hidden in the pipes.
8. The Cave level after Ubber Plains had "OMG!" in a text box, don't put OMG or LOL or ROFLMAO in your taxt boxes.

Hmm let's see...

1) I'm not planning on changing the OW yet. I don't have a good grasp of how to change it. Last time I tried I ended up making a big mess plus for some reason my levels were not "unlocking" the new routes. If you passed a level, Mario just sat on the same spot. So yeah, I have to keep reading and doing some trial and error until I got whant I want. For now I'll just concentrate on level design.

2) Lol, never saw that monty mole doing that. Maybe it was because when I play-test it I killed him to quickly and didn't let him do his thing. Thx for that pointer, I'm definitely getting him fixed.

3) Hmm...cutoffs, don't remember seeing those, but I'll check on those.

4) Emm the reason for doing this has to do with the plot. Supposedly Bowser is using some type of magic he got from the Star Road to change the levels and some of them are from the past. AT first it sounded like a good idea because it looked cool, but I think I get your point. They are a bit over-used and lack of originality. Hmm... let's see how I can fix this. I'll have to think on how to change the plot and stuff to get rid of this.

5) Well, I kinda like the idea of having a small scrolling room before the boss. It makes like a creepy entrance to the boss. So I decided to somewhat keep that room so I changed it up a bit. I was planing on doing rooms similar to that on all of the castle before the boss's room. They would be like gradually raising the difficulty (Iggy being the easiest, the Morton's is a bit harder, etc...). I'll think of a way to give that room some pizazz and make it look different.

6) Umm this has the same problem as point #4.

7) Yep I know of this and it's nice to now you pointed that out. My problem there was that I wanted to use those platforms on this stage, and those sprites had a different header than the ones from the Piranha Plants. I did a temporary fix by dropping them down, but it is obvious that it looks weird. I'm trying to work around that problem.

8) Thx for the pointer.I'm removing any OMGs, LOLs, LMAOs or ROFLs of msg boxes. Not everyone knows these abbreviations.


So yeah, I'll keep fixing this until I hit the butter zone of being a good romhack. For now I'll just keep doing some level designing and see what you guys think of it.

Thx for the advice.

Ok, I will now remove the old Mario 1 lvls and redo them completely.

However, I came up with a idea that might be good. In my levels I always try to put a secret door somewhere so the player has a purpose of exploring the entire level or parts of the level he hasn't seen. I thought, why not just make like mini bonus rooms that resemble like old Mario levels that has goodies hidden on it instead of making a entire level a old mario redux. (Like I did in Ubber Plains) This way I'll mix fun new stuff and good old memories in the game. But I will not do this to all of the levels I make, so I can have a balance on the entire game.

You guys think this is good idea?



Edit - BTW, I removed the 2 errors that were mentioned at the top. I will be finishing a couple of levels soon and re-upload the new UMW Demo patch thing.
