Lately I've been kind of feeling bad for cancelling a hack that I tried to make many months ago, and I missed the feeling of actually making a hack. So I started this vanilla hack project, and it's called "Boring Mario." Don't take the title too literally, it just means that it's the same old, same old Mario type of platformer.
The hack itself is short, and will only have four levels. I don't know if I'll ever expand on this ever, but that's the way it's going to be now. This hack also doesn't really focus on the story, I just wanted to focus on the levels, this time.
Anywho, here's some screens:
Here's the title screen, of course. I just made a small miniature version of what could be a full length Mario level.
The overworld. I don't know if I'm happy with this just yet so if you have a suggestion on how to make it better, please say so.
And here's Plains One, which is essentially finished but I might still want to make a few "polishing up" changes to it.
"Plains Two" and "Plains Three" are still early in the making so I won't show off screens yet. The names "Plains Two/Three" is also subject to change. As for the fortress, I think I'll save that one for later.
Anyway, if you've got some important feedback and/or criticism, I'd be happy to hear it. I'd like to improve my level design in any way possible.
And the fact that this is my 1000th post is purely coincidental, I'd been working on this for a while and I didn't have anything special planned for this milestone so :-P
