Hi everybody, long time no see.. now I'm presenting: The Shroomland

It's a very small hack. I planed a larger one, but because of time
and motivation I'll never finish a bigger hack, I guess :P

It's short (7 exits), but depending on the players skill, it should take some
time to beat all the levels, find all yoshi-coins and little secrets
(if you don't betray yourself and play without savestates ;) ).
I guess the difficulty is moderate, not easy but never unfair.

I tried to create unique styles for every level by mixing original
SMW graphics and implemented some new ideas (specials) of mine.
The result is a classic but new look with custom music banging.

I would really appreciate if you had some feedback for me. Please
tell me if there are bugs/glitches, graphic- or gameplay mistakes
(I played the Hack several times but maybe I didn't notice everthing).
Is the difficulty okay (too easy/hard)? Could the written text be
improved (I'm not a native english speaker)...

tell me what's on your mind :)

Thanks for watching/reading/playing/giving feedback ;)


Here are some more details (don't open the spoiler, if you want to
explore the Shroomland unbiased)

Main facts:

- An optional Level (but it would be an advantage to beat it..)
- One main level
- A final level (quite a puzzle level)
- A Credit Level
- Three optional bonus levels (relict of larger-hack-plan)
- Pseudo-story (not very creative, but it's enough for it's purpose, I think)
- Custom music (final fantasy)
- Owerworld-edit
- Original SMW graphics only (new arranged, mixed and colored)


Some Screenshots:









//UPDATE

Hi everybody, I did some bugfixing and added a little bit of "special" content! I hope you like it ;)

Amazing palettes! I love this vanilla hack!!!!#smw{:peace:}

Edit: 200th post!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

--------------------
Amazing layout by JackTheSpades
This looks like an extremely nice hack. Going to add this to my collection of recent hacks. Some palettes look funky though:



The background palette here looks really strange and out of touch to me. Also in the first screenshot, the bone Mario is standing looks strange considering the outside is lighter then the inside though it is not bad.

You're right. I wasn't sure if this underground bg is a bit "over the top" - but I decided to take this bright orange because of the lava-look/light ^^

In the other level, you mentioned: because the level takes place at night I used darker, less saturated colors and I flipped the shading of the objects (bushes, bones..). If you look at the "gravestones" you can see this shading (in original the dark parts were bright, and the bright parts were dark -> shadow). I wanted to imitate the less light at night (by the moon).

DO NOT UNVEIL UNLESS YOU WANT THE GAME SPOILED

umm... it's impossible to bring a p-switch into the segment with the giant door and it's impossible to get the existing one w/o a yoshi, which you can't bring either (it's a door duh)


can someone help me?

EDIT: nevermind. it's a wierd door, through...

Some of the pipes have different colors, Like for example In the bottom row the pipe is blue but in the top the pipe is green

these pipes are "special". if you get stuck in a level (because something you need to proceed is missing for example), these 2-colored pipes take you out of the level (so you haven't got to kill yourself).

you would know that if you had read the info-boxes ^^

This is a genius hack, by far the most brilliant I've seen. Difficult, yet not ridiculously so. Very beautiful textures, interesting soundtrack. Speaking of the soundtrack, I recognised a few songs from Final Fantasy (Moogle Theme, Zanarkand, etc.) and I was intrigued. Do you have the full list of songs you used in this vanilla hack?
Was there really a need to bump an inactive thread by an inactive author?

The OP may request for this thread to be reopened if he returns.
