Hello. 1UPdudes here! (Or 3UPdudes at the time of this post..heh)
Short Story Short:
- This is a short hack I'm currently working on
- It has been in early stages for a good few months now
- Haven't got the time to focus on long levels/hacks
- Older projects like "Mario" will get finished
- Other stuff I've done may get demos. Who knows
- Now to actually spend the rest of this post on the hack
Chibi Yoshi's! These are the main cast of characters. ^.^
In each level the colour of the Chibi Yoshi changes.
There will be about 10-11 levels. Short ones at that.
- A Greedy King called King Groshi* has stolen many things
- This includes treasure such as coins
- But more importantly: Berries
- These berries are the peaceful Chibi Yoshi's food source
- He has taken over near by islands to scout out more loot
- It is up the to Chibi Yoshi's to go the surrounding islands
- And collect remaining berries
- And beat up the other nasty Chibi Yoshi's
- Before beating up the greedy king himself
* King Groshi is the most creative name ever.
So yeah not too heavy on the story but it does play into the hack as each of the levels will have its own distinct theme and gimmick.
The gameplay is where this hack is different:
- Chibi Yoshi can only jump just over 1 block high
- You can get a lot of air time by enemy jumping
- You can't run
- You can't pick up or hold items
- No Spinjumping
- One Hit and your dead!
- Slide Attacking is good for enemies that can't be jumped on
So yeah if you have tried out Ninji Jump, one of my older hacks you'll get the hang of things quicker. The limitations are there so that the short levels can't just be beaten in 3 seconds with normal jumping.
Now I'll show some super exciting screens.. Not really.
This is the first level. I'll explain some key things.
The start of the level. You can go any direction first.
Berries! Well Berry, Collect 3 in a level to beat it.
Jumping on an Egghead Yoshi. Good for getting height.
The Status Bar shows some red dots. These represent Berries.
Stages contain little secrets to find such as 1UPS & Coins.
Collecting all 3 Berries will end the level after the thrid is collected. Make sure your in a safe place ;D
On one final note most of the enemies in the game will be:
Here are some examples are the baddies trying to get in your way.
- Prickle Yoshi
- Egghead Yoshi
- Green Chibi Rex
- Eggshell Yoshi
Phew. Quite the long post so I'm not fussed if you didn't read it all. I tried to be as quick and concise as I could so if something doesn't make sense please just leave a reply and ask me! ^.^
I hope to have a WIP thread of this project after C3. Thanks!
