Luigi's Superstar Search - C3 Demo Release!

I've been working quite hard the past week to get everything nice and working. So now, after a couple months of on and off work, I present to you:

My first ever released hack, a demo of Luigi's Superstar Search.

I will be showing the overworld in it's entirety (is that even a word?) tomorrow, so I'll have use of both days. But, here's a couple screenshots (a bit outdated though):

Like I said, a couple of outdated screenshots. So I hope you guys enjoy this demo, as I enjoyed making it.

PS: There IS a readme within the zip, not really needed to read, though.

Looks very interesting! I bet lot of people will this downloading and playing. *downloads and plays* :)
I just started playing this, and it seems very promising so far. However, the events seem to be kind of messed up: The second level won't reveal after you beat the first one, and the secret exit of it only leads to an unnamed, unenterable level...

EDIT: Also, it is possible to get stuck forever in the castle, if you use the wall spring just before the pool of lava to jump over the tall pipe to the right.

actually, you should be able to go right after the "blank" level. Man, I thought I fixed all the events .... I'll look into it again.
Oops... Still, that's kind of counter-intuitive... Why not just have a bent path all the way to the fortress? Also, I noticed another strange event: the exit of Castle Secret activates the path from Sweet Grasslands to Deep Forest.

C3 booth the 2nd

I go to the 2nd booth. Like the 1st booth, this 2nd booth has screenshots of Luigi. This seems to be the Luigi section of the convention floor. I see another free IPS patch, so I grab that.

The demo of "Luigi's Superstar Search" works, and it looks and sounds well.

I like these mushroom plaforms, because when Luigi walks on them, Luigi follows the curve. The edges act like curved edges, not straight blocks.

I only try three courses. I find a keyhole exit from the second course and Luigi proceeds up to the fortress, though I had some slight trouble following the path to the fortress on the world map.

I struggle with the boss at the end of the fortress, but I discover where a 1-up mushroom hides, so I have unlimited tries. Then I change my strategy, defeat the boss and save the game.

I was fortunate to find that save point. I would continue this game now, but I want to visit these other booths. Without the save point, I would have lost my progress as I swap games in the emulator. Now I look for a 3rd booth...
