Just Blob

Welcome at this thread about a little side-project: Just Blob

==========
Story:
==========
This is our hero today, Blob


Blob was different from his schoolbuddies, because of his color.
They bullied him and scared him away.
Blob decided to run away from school, on his way to find a friend...


=============
General Info:
=============

This is a little side-project, so it "only" contains 2 worlds with a total of 8 levels.
It's mainly going to be a puzzle-orientated hack, but I'll explain more about it later...

As you've most likely already noticed, the protagonist is a little blob named Blob.
This means he has different abilities than Mario:

- Walljump
Since it's a blob, he can stick to walls and jump from those.


- Higher Jump
Think of a bouncing ball, Blob can jump almost twice as high as Mario.


-Blob Cannon
Blob has the ability to shoot little parts of his body at enemies.
However he'll first need to collect his ammo.



The general look is based on simple drawings, so you can expect to see some random doodling here and there.


==================
Gameplay-Elements:
==================

As I've said, it's mainly going to be a puzzle-hack.
The puzzles are formed by different colored lines, which all behave in a different way.


Black - Just a normal line, nothing to worry about.


Red - It's a bad idea to jump on these, because these will hurt and cost you 1 heart


Green - This actes like a moving legde, to the left.


Yellow - Same as a green line, except to the right.


Blue - Step on these with caution, this line will lauch you at max speed!


============
Screenshots:
============

Here are some other/random screenshots.

Overworld:



Enemy #1


Enemy #2



Isn't Blob just adorable? :3
It's very cool and cute looking indeed! :3
although I dont really like the green and yellow lines being conveyor belts, I think they should animate. also, try making all the lines a little thicker so its easier to tell what the color of them they are.

CUTE!

{also, "made fun of him because of his color", is this racism?)
I like the cute and doodle-ish style of this hack. And it looks really fun to play too. I can't wait to play it :3
This hack looks very interesting :o

Love the style of it.

Simplistic, but aesthetically pleasing.
reminds me of boing...
Very original,can't wait to see it in action.
If anyone needs help with custom Character GFX,PM me.
<Note> You will have to have a progress thread in order for me to work on GFX for you.No random requests.
Wow, I love the style of the hack! I do agree that you may want do change something about those lines, and I hope the levels aren't flat like they are depicted as.

Oh, and I LOVE the title screen!

Exactly. How about a video, or even a demo?


This looks awesome!

I made something like this before, Bally's Adventure. Bally was just like Blob,but green.

Footer huh? I never knew posts had feet o_o

Current Hack = Doopliss Revenge

how about normal text next time

but a demo would be nice.


I just wanted the text to stand out a little more.
This looks awesome TheDutchLuigi! It seems, it's an original and unique idea. I agree with the others: can't wait to see it in action (or a demo?)
Thanks for the comments.

@ Simple Bag:
I think you're right, I should animate them.

@ Flandre Scarlet:
Well it's your opinion, but you haven't seen it in action yet...

@ Swine Flu: Don't worry about the levels, every screenshot is just from a simple test-level I made for them...

@ Aqualakitu: I'm afraid I've to dissapoint you: The hack is in such an early state I haven't any level done. So a demo would be a bit pointless :)

This was more a "reveal-thread" to show you my idea.
Currently I'm a bit more busy with this hack, so it may take a while before I release a demo...

Also Big text FTW!!

No, I really like your title screen text, I was just joking around with Aqualakitu.

I actually meant your previous post, you guys started "joking" while I was typing the post :)

Edit: Nevermind, I misread "boing" as "boring" >_<
It looks amazing. I can't wait for a demo release, although that probably won't be for a while...
