Mario Catalysm


A SMW-Hack by Darius




First...


First of all, I wanna say something. This is my 1st Hack Iwant to release so far. It's no specific Style like Vanilla or so, I'm usin' all things you can use. That includes:
  • Custom Sprites
  • Custom Music
  • Custom Blocks
  • Extra Graphics
  • Some Patches (new Health System))

Now onto the hacks' name: Mario should be clear, the hero/protagonist of the Game. And then? WTF! What should Catalysm means? I have no idea, I just randomly got the word.

Getting it!


Normally, here at this place would be a download link for a demo, but I'll just release a demo when I made the Overworld, with ExGFX, of course (that's the Problem, finding good ones!).

Screenshots




The Tile Screen (Beta).


Oh no... no money...


Welcome to Chain Chomp's Plains!


Hmm.... Where's my Power-Up?


See the coins? There must be... something.


The F.L.U.D.D. Cave, take the blue 'shroom!


Small Power-Up Break.


Very obvious what to do!


Wheeee! Minecart!


Falling Rocks aren't nice but well masked!


The Outer Castle Walls...
More Images will follow, but just nice ones !


Credits:


The biggest part of all was made by me (the Levels, most GFX and most Music). I'm not ready for complicated Sprites, but I think one boss is sure (I've already planned one, but that's a secret).

Also, Credit goes to:
- Underway (for his pretty nice YI-styled Graphics)
- WhiteYoshiEgg (for the fantastic FLUDD Sprite)
- RPG Hacker (for his rarely used Roleplay-styled HP and MP Bar)
- edit's BG Ripper (for ripping some BG's (see the Title Screen BG!)
- wiiwerqtyp (for the Base of my Minecart, I've edited his Skull Cart!)

If I missed something, Post here!

Now I'm really excited what the Comments will be!
These first screenshots are extremely promising, actually. This hack is already looking to be a fine game already. However, such words aren't really helpful, so digging deeper into these screenshots, I find...

The Tile Screen (Beta)
While it looks impressive, it's not really anything to write home about. There's a lot more that can be done with it other than Mario looking at the player. Also, the curtains have weird aliasing around the edges (where there are those white pixels).

Oh no... no money...
A good entry screen, but the opening message could use a little work. It's not too bad, but the sentence "Mario has lost his money. But he must buy food for surviving" is a little clumsy. Consider something that can open a story, like "Mario lost all of his money, and he needed it all as soon as possible! Can you help him get it back?" Also, the 'coin' meter is oddly colored. It seems deliberate, but you might want to change it.

Welcome to Chain Chomp's Plains! and Hmm.... Where's my Power-Up?
These are okay screenshots, but the colors in the HUD are weird. Also, is that long stretch of grass in the background? You might want to lower it, if not outright remove it, since it takes away too much from the mountain background.

The F.L.U.D.D. Cave, take the blue 'shroom! and Small Power-Up Break.
No problems here, aside from the aforementioned coin meter. These are definitely one of your better screenshots.

Very obvious what to do!
Let's Minecart? As grammatically unsound as that it, it's actually pretty silly. I would suggest keeping that in. Maybe you could add an exclamation point to it, as a bit of a wink to the player.

The rest of the screenshots are great, and I have no real criticisms of them outside of weird colors and whatnot.

That was because it uses Palette 6 and that color was used by this yellow Animation.

I know, It doesn't looks good overall. I have noticed it yet but didn'T think that the Player would see it... FAIL!

Yes, it is. I will lower that!

OK, that was Fail, too. Shall I make "Display Message 1" or a VWF Cutscene?

He closes his Eyes and open them again, just in Fact that you think there's just a Mario Face.

No, actually I find "Let's Minecart!" to be pretty charming. I'm saying that you should keep it!

Sorry I was missunderstanding silly, I thought it means something like Stupid.

Check the Frirst picture, Ive edited the BG and the Status Bar!
As already Deeke said, the Screenshots look very promising, you've picked (maybe) the best ExGFX's arround here at SMWC, and combined them together.

Also the "Let's Minecart" Idea is pretty funny and cool.

Good Work, I'm looking forward to this hack! #w{=D}

--------------------
By the Way: My English isn't really the best, but I'll try to express myself as clearly as possible. ^^"
That thread is awesome, I had to write this post. It also deserves a highlight.

From what I could see and read here, this will be an outrageous hack. You say you'll be using selfmade graphics and music (just like what I plan to do in my "little-big" project), and that's what will make your project unique.

Yep.
I just have one little complaint: You're using Redrawn Mario GFX, but Mario's head on the Status Bar still uses the default Mario GFX. Change its GFX there and all will be fine (unless you've already fixed it, since you said you updated it a while ago...).

Best of luck to you, my friend. I cannot wait to see this hack done!

Wow...impresive.NOt only youre level design, but also youre choice of GFX/palettes.REaly looking forward to playing this, as it already looks really cool.

Your layout has been removed.
Oh wow dude, great job on this hack so far! My first hack... really sucked haha, but you seem to really know what you are doing =D The only thing I can really complain about is the status bar palette... it seems to look quite bad when you are using the YI Mountain BG. I am not sure if you could fix that without screwing up the BG =/ But hey, I am totally loving your design so far; and great choice in GFX!

Wow, this seems pretty cool for a first hack. Nice choice of graphics and level design.
@ camoslash

Like you can see in the first picture, it works. I can put the BG Palette (whick uses palette 1) in the unused palette 3.


@ Blind Devil

Fixed.
Uh, do you mean "Cataclysm" regarding your hack title? Cause that's the correct spelling, btw.

Looks pretty nice :D Like this Lava Level ^.^

The hack is somewhat pretty cool.

Also, redrawn Mario and SMW-style enemy graphic is incompatible.

Yes, originally, I had some by WYE inserted, but somehow, there away.

Nope, but you said it and Mario's Cataclysm won't be bad.... OK, we found a new Title!!! #w{=P}#w{=P}#w{=P}
