Hello, Mortal...welcome to one of my hacks that finally has some progress...Before you read this...answer these:
Is halloween your favorite holiday? If not, do you like halloween?
Do you prefer chocolate hacks with original content?
If you said yes to both of these questions, you have come to the right place. Now, let me begin the information of my hack.
Storyline: (In progress)
In the Mushroom Kingdom, at halloween day, everyone is having fun decorating their homes, giving candy to Trick-Or-Treaters, and having fun at Halloween parties. But while all that was happening...a devious villian (Unnamed) is plotting to ruin halloween and enslave those with good hearts forever in Hell. That evening, he ambushed Satin, the true ruler of hell, and then threw him into a prison he could not escape from. Then, he summoned his underlings to go to the Aether and kidnap God (Or probably a new name) and throw him in the Prison along with Satan. After the invasion, his underlings Kidnapped 7 of the main Heros: Mario, Luigi, Peach, Daisy, Yoshi, Wario, and Waluigi. He has also sent his 6 elite guardians to guard them and don't let anyone free them.
...That's all I got for the storyline for now. If you got any ideas, lemme know. And yes, the player is NOT Mario. It is a Toad instead. A blue spotted toad, actually. He has no name either.
Here are the world themes:
W1: Graveyard. (Not named yet)
W2: Desert (Not named yet)
W3: Iceland (Named "Ghostly Glacier")
W4: Water/Park (Named "Aquatic Amusement")
W5: Sky (No name yet)
W6: Mansion (No name yet)
W7: Forest (Final world, no name)
Congratulations, you have found this hidden quote. I'll tell you this: There are more worlds...But DO NOT SAY THE WORD, OR ELSE.
And that's the world themes.
I'm currently working on the first level of my hack. It's called "Silhouette Sunset". It is another silhouette level, BUT there is a thing that makes the level slightly more interesting. As the level goes on, the sun goes down and level becomes less silhouette. But the bad news is I cannot make it silhouette due to sprite graphics and the background not being made yet. It would be a real pain in the ass if I was to redo the whole palette...I think.
Here are some screenshots:
That's almost halfway through the level. The background is not final, i'm using it as a placeholder. I've pretty much gone overboard with the enemies IMO, so i'll tone it down a bit. The level will also introduce Venus Firetraps. There are also multi-colored coins in my hack. Green Coins are worth 2 coins. Blue coins are worth 5 coins. And the rare red coins are worth 10 coins. Each level contains 4 Pumpkin Coins. You may have guessed what their purpose is; To Unlock things. And that is true. Collect them and you'll get special things coming your way. If you collect them all, something good may happen! Unfortunately, I don't have the coding for them yet, and i'm not sure if it'll be a sprite or a block. No, the status bar is not final. I know it looks bad but it'll be changed soon.
One thing to know about the player: The player is supposed to be always big, and never small. He'll also have a fire flower power, but no cape power. The health system is where you have 2 hearts. (Kinda like DKCR)
Another thing to know about my hack: The time of the day is always supposed to be night, but the first level is sunset. Also, while the main theme of my hack is Horror/dark, it shouldn't be completely that. Some of the levels will have fewer haunted enemies, and others won't have any of those at all.
And what else am I doing? Why, drawing my own graphics of course! Here are some of the things I am drawing: (These are outdated ATM)
Some graphics for the graveyard levels for W1. RIP.
Here's some graphics for W3.
Here are some stuff I made. (General graphics) I didn't really know how to design the multicolored platforms or pipes. (But they're not SMWCP2's. They look slightly different) Can anyone help me out?
And finally, i'm gonna tell you the themes I have for worlds 1-4. I'll tell more as I go on.
003: Graveyard - Silhouette Sunset
004: Graveyard (Working on)
00A: ??? (It is near the mountain on the left side of the overworld map.)
00D: ??? (A catacomb or some kind of cave?)
011: Snow Mountain
012: Icy-cold lake
014: Ice Caves
016: Ice Palace(?)
11D: Swamp (Yes, I got it from DKC2. Shaddap.)
11E: Water Slide
120: Underwater (It's a sunken part of the amusement park)
121: Amusement Park (Unknown gimmick)
122: Dark Ride
- Not started
- Working on
- Finished, but needs testing.
- In progress, but stopped working on.
And that's it for now.
So what do you think of the progess I have so far? I'm still learning ASM and am getting better at drawing graphics. I'd be nice if someone could make artworks of the bosses of my hack or regular sprites, anything. I'd really appreciate it.
I will tell more information as I go on with the hack. For now, have this. I'll make an ideas list and more features in this post later on. I have missed a bunch of things, but they are all minor.
And finally, congratulations to my 4000th post! Happy Halloween, mortals! Heeheeheeheehee... (Lemme know if I missed anything)
