Koopa Castle: The First Demo

This is my VERY FIRST DEMO OF MY VERY FIRST HACK!!! And just in time for C3!

You play as a "Good" Koopa sent by Mario to infiltrate Bowser's new massive castle. During the prologue (THERE IS A PROLOGUE) you get caught by "Bad" Koopas and you are locked in the prison tower. You soon escape and start exploring the castle.

Includes 11 full levels (On Overworld), 2 switches, 1 Top Secret Area, 1 "Your Cell" level, and 3 "End of Demo" areas with 1 of them housing a secret...

Also: Custom Blocks, My own graphics for the "Stone Block Wall", ExGFX, a prologue, and cutscenes.

I also use some custom music where I think it's necessary.

(The above text is just a copy/paste from the description page)

Since I just submitted it, it's still waiting to be Moderated...

My Screenshots:








I've never seen a C3 before, so I don't know how it works (Does this thread count as my entry???). I hope I am doing it right...
Koopa Castle Demo 3 is (hopefully) on the way!

I like the concept behind this. It's cool that you are using the game's original graphics along with fairly good ExGFX that matches it. The only thing I would say needs more work is the castle BG with all of the bricks - the pillars really stand out. Otherwise, this is looking pretty good. Keep up the good work!

If I moderated your hack, there was apparently a 90 percent chance it was rejected.

I agree. The castle background needs some work. Although, for a first hack, this is quite impressive!

So...

Should I make the pillars darker so they blend in with the bricks...
Or change the bricks to something a little more "agreeable" with the rest of the bg...
Or go back to the original SMW rocks...

I don't quite know what to make them into...

Different kind of bricks (Bigger, Lighter/Darker color, more like cement blocks)?

Or some different sort of wall that isn't brick (Wood, Stone, Metal, etc.)...

BTW thanks for the constructive criticism...

Personally, I liked the background. Looks good so far. Keep it up.
