Yes, I can see that, as you quite literally just said that in your post above.

Sigh.

I should probably elaborate. For one, the most recent level list I found says that 3-5 is supposed to be Level 20. Which is fine and dandy, however that level is unmodified. Now, after discovering this I went through and looked for any levels that are actually changed, and found that you did change Level 1D, but it's a grassland level that for one; doesn't at all match your level's name, and two; is not finished.

Did you submit the wrong file? Or is it another level number than what I thought?
...

He didn't even use the base ROM.

Maze of Caves Review
As I played the level, I wrote down my thoughts. The first thoughts are from the start of the level, the ones towards the bottom are from later into the level.

Mario seems to flash a lot in this stage, like there's memory issues (for me at least, I'm using ZMZ). The level is extremely cramped.

Cramped. Makes it difficult to run up the purple triangles without getting hit by a football or the Red Koopa. Easy 3-up moon. "Semi" blind jump just after that.

After entering the pipe, the level doesn't fit the ice theme the jungle theme [before the pipe and after], the Classic Piranha Plant ExGFX has not been added to the second part
You weren't given the Base ROM due to you stealing files, so I'll let that go.
like so (level D2), but, the second half is better, in my opinion. I'll try the next part.

The P-Switch room is quite good. It's quite cramped, and with a running jump you can skip over all the bullet bills, but, it's certainly better than the overground part.

Needs custom music. Just noticed that.

Final Verdict: An okay start. It needs to fit the "Ice World" "Jungle World" theme. The first section needs to be redone, in my opinion. The rest of the level is quite nice. Maybe needs some decoration, or some more varied land formations, but, it's okay. Also, it's quite easy after the first room - it needs to be harder than the levels preceding it, one of which is like this.

Six edits later, I know. Sorry mods.

...you guys do realize you should enter a pipe, right?
FAKE EDIT: Oh, you did. Sorry

Anyways if nobody posts after me I'll make the review here (I'm working on my CCR level)
e: spiny is sux, clubba is better

e2: Oh, he didn't use the base ROM because I didn't tell him the password, mainly because of this (I thought it was suspicious)
Have another post to review it. Also I did my quick thoughts in my post above.

Also,

Yeah, I agree. Shows that we have some ASM skill. Maybe he could shoot eggs that hatch into an enemy?

FOR BOSSES DISCUSSION

I made an Etherpad for the boss discussion. Link. Feel free to contribute.

@AlwaysANoob: But it's the jungle world?


LEVEL REVIEW - MAZE OF CAVES
This looks like has potential, yet AlwaysANoob said everything I was going to say. Another things:
-This is the jungle world yet it looks like a grassland. Maybe add some BG2 trees or, at least, change the palette.
-It, overall, needs some decoration and custom palettes.
-Also, it needs difficulty balancing: first section starts all charged with enemies all over the place, yet the other sections feel less difficult. Balance it.
-I feel the bullet bill generator comes out randomly in the second section.
- The second-to-last (last maze) doesn't have verticall scroll enabled, so I had to enable it in order to continue.
Figured I'd say that I added some things to the Etherpad. Mainly just some ideas for W1 and W4.

Edit: Made the room for the boss. http://prntscr.com/89ou8c

@AlwaysANoob: That boss room looks nice, I find the vines to be actually nice in a desert environment. Good job.

As for me, I'm taking sprite slot 09, for a later thing
(a gimmick with Bowser's Bowling Ball... ;) )


I also decided to turn 1-2 into anything else.
Also, 1-8 (RainbowShell) is free now.
Hey there! I also thought about Desert Boss. Boss room is very good. I think there will be something unique boss.

And what about level list?

Believe what you want, not every sentence is true.

Haters will always be haters and try and make you blue.

But blue is a pretty color, it doesn't have to end.

Even if the hate, is hidden within your "Friends".

-Yoka Hiro aka Cwoodsdean
Is 1-9 free? It doesn't say anyone's claimed it.

If not then I'll just take 1-8
I forgot to post a gimmick idea for 1-9:

Originally posted by my head
WORLD 1-9 - Vigilance Tower
Start with a cutscene, Morton says: "What, so Mario can enter here for free and I have to pass through a vigilance tower just to exit? For fucks sake."
The level: It's basically a castle with abandoned tints, taken over by Bowser's troops.
At the end, a cutscene before the boss with Morton saying: "Um, an abandoned room. I gess I'll just leave jumping thorugh that window..." then Ludwig appaears, begging Morton to stay: "What made you change, Morton? We're all a family, and even if you have reached your majority of age, we still need of you", or something among the lines. Morton obviously refuses, leaving no option to Ludwig but to fight.


I decided to stick to this boss for World 1:

another one of the koopalings, possibly roy, preceded by a cutscene with roy/another koopaling begging morton not to just run away and start his own thing <--- I'll stick with this one, but using Ludwig instead. I'll see what to do for doing the boss.


tl:dr; Your choice, you can either: Use that gimmick, 1-9 with another gimmick/story, or 1-8.

I'll update the level list today if I have time.

Also Forth, please don't save the Etherpad a lot. 1 saved revision is enough.

edit: typos for fucks sake
Just figured I'd show this off.

dis

It's not too difficult. The first time I use this I have a block for safety in case they miss or don't grab on to the net in time.

It's almost done (the level, duh). A couple more screens and testing and then I'll submit it.

I'm cool with that but why Ludwig? Roy is basically Morton's counterpart in every way, so I thought it would make more sense to use him. Not that you absolutely have to, but I'm kinda curious as to what your reasoning is.
Now that I'm taking a break from my hack for a bit, I'd like to join a collaboration project. 3-7 is still unclaimed on the list, so I'd like to give it a shot.

I decided to use Ludwig because since he is the biggest (in age) of the Koopalings, so he is like the right-handed man of Bowser, or so I implemented the story in this hack. it really doesn't make a lot of sense but still :P

Hey there! AlwaysANoob's level is great! I like it.

Edit: Actually, I'm thinking of creating Jungle and Ice submaps, And I work really hard. I won't fail you this time, I'm such a submap designer than level creator.

And... Hey! I've updated a level list! You can find it here
Cascade's levels are very good!

I nearly finished overworlds. If I complete them, I'll send an IPS or BPS via PM to Erik.
