But I'm going to do it differently this time.
As some of you might know... I am actually busy with a hack... almost 7 months already. It's a pity that, until recently, I hadn't had ONE finished level, and didn't feel like making a revival thread (the last and first one dated back in November, bumping that would make no sense at all and I honestly want a new thread for this, since the plot has kinda changed).
Ok, I won't completely reveal my plot this time, as it has changed quite some bit, but Kolorado is going to play in it. Whether I'll have him as Luigi's role or NPC, I'm not decided yet, but I think I'll do the latter because otherwise the music will get limited even more.
There will be a plot twist in the game, btw, but I'm not going to tell what it is.
I'm not a star in ExGFX - but I think my use of palettes are decent -. My ASM skills are decent, but still more basic than really advanced. My level design isn't uber. I know barely anything about OW editing, I'll come to that point yet.
Don't expect this hack to be a winner ; always think about the worst-case scenario. See it as a crappy youtube hack.
Things I know that will be fixed :
Font, status bar, etc.
I ABSOLUTELY HATE SHOWING THE OVERWORLD... but I have to. Yeah, it's noobish.
Some levels have got side-plots. The first one (Short Hills) isn't excluded. Ok, here goes :
Some lower into the valley, once there was a relatively peaceful Fuzzy society, traveling along wires for all sorts of things. However, some Fuzzies began to get mean and joined, and knocked other - usually normal sized - Fuzzies off. They built a tiny village, and created 5 statues to represent their village. 4 of them got stolen by the mean Fuzzies in one night, however, and they sold it to the Beezos, telling them that they needed to fly it to somewhere far away. The Beezos didn't obey that, anyways, and placed them on the hills. The Fuzzies went mad and blocked all village Fuzzies from trying to get those 4 statues.
Later on, the last statue will be stolen.
This hill contains a cannon, two pipes, rocks and... something important.
What can you do in the cannon? Not much... you can shoot out and change from sight. In this level though, there isn't much to see, except for Beezos flying around.
Later on, you'll find Bandit. You can pass if you have 10 coins or more. However, at some point your coin total will drop down to 0. Yeah, Bandit's a bandit after all.
The text is kind of blocked by layer 3, I'll try to disable that soon enough. Btw, this is the lengthy way down to the secret exit.
Megafuzzy's debut. His GFX are still kind of blocky, though, but meh...
Spittin' Fuzzy's debut.
This is the only time in-game the name of the boss is mentioned. His full name is Ferdinand Y. Fuzzy. Y as of Yellow.
The village. Yeah, it's pretty tiny. Most Fuzzies hurt, but not all. The mayor and a thieve won't hurt, but can provide you access to a door. Everyone is panicky because the fifth statue is stolen now.
This building is kinda important.
The mayor provides you the key for the shop. You can buy a mushroom, a flower, a cape or something mysterious in here. It improves your status, it won't get stored into the item box.
As for the thieve, he'll provide access to :
The two Fuzzies you just saw before you entered the village will greet you.
Battle him. He takes 13 hits, and from 5 hits on, he gets harder pretty fast. He IS a toughie, especially when your status is small. He's definitely not impossible, but his Fuzzy spawning can give him the winning edge, especially after 7 hits, and from 11 hits on, it becomes a frenzy.
Here used to be a statue. Pokey got it. You can't get it before beating Ferdinand.
Outside, celebrating Fuzzies and a ? sphere await you.
I'd like to hear them.
Don't follow "Find Roy's Dignity", my hack
. Because it's pretty outdated. <--------
