Despite a couple roadblocks on Sunday with Xkas and SpriteTool bugging out to the point of nearly causing me to cancel, I've continued to work on this hack and it's nearly complete. As of tonight, I only have 2 more levels to do before a beta is ready for release.
The first level of Lunaria, my hack's secret world. These levels have a moon theme and LevelASM-induced low gravity to go with it.
The second level has pools of lava and some fire-spitting enemies. This yellow Snifit is one of them. It's a Flame Snifit that shoots 3 fireballs.
Mario CAN make that jump. The Low Gravity LevelASM gives your jump a SERIOUS boost.
Mario flies around in a little UFO, dodging angry stars and popping off enemies with missiles while rocking to an SMW rendition of Around the World by Daft Punk.
My final boss. It uses Iceguy's Ultimate n00b Boss sprite as a template. It's not what I originally envisioned, but it works, and is a pretty tough boss to beat.
