New Player Character: Kadaal
No, we're not dead. This update is a pretty hefty one. As you guys know, this hack will have multiple (and completely different) playable characters. I quite recently finished the player character engine and have something pretty cool to show for it: a brand-new character, capable of playing alongside Mario! Note that this isn't a sprite, it's its own thing entirely. Anyways, the new character is Kadaal, the vengeful koopa! His home was destroyed during the Dark Lord's invasion of Dinosaur Land and he's pretty pissed. Here are some details regarding how he plays:
- Fast and powerful while on the ground.
- Mediocre control in midair (hard to land on enemies).
- Has hit points instead of Mario's powerup system.
- Quickly accelerates and can take out enemies with punches and kicks.
- Original character don't steal.
I haven't had a chance to record a gameplay video yet but I should have it up in a few days. We're gonna put up a demo so you guys can try him when we put up the video. In the meantime, have some screenshots!
Navigating Mushroom Gorge.
That rex has groceries. Better beat the shit out of him. (Kadaal can be pretty violent)
Even Kadaal has to flee every now and then. Good thing he's so fast!
Castle is pretty scary...
Charging against the king of the rex like this is either very brave or very stupid.
Some of his animations.
