Mario Catalysm with New Screenshots! (SMW Hack Showoff)

Welcome to my C3 Thread in which I'd like to present you the project I'm currently working on:

MARIO CATALYSM

Yep, not cataclysm, without that second c.

Some of you may remember older threads in which I've already showed off parts of Mario Catalysm,
but even if you know those threads, I guess it's worth looking through the mostly new and edited pictures!

I've started working on this hack in 2011, but I wasn't lucky with the results so I completely restarted in 2013.
The project folder stayed mostly untouched the last two years but after I've finished school some months ago,
I came back to the old levels and started to improve them and added new ones.

I'm gonna give you a list what this hack consists of:

- 8 Worlds with a variety of levels (the worlds are grass, beach, forest, cave, mountain, clouds, space, final and special)
- Mostly self-drawn graphics (i.e. the forest, cave or cloud GFX)
- Completely self-made music (be sure to definitely check out the soundtrack here!)
- Fresh ASM gimmicks (of which some are self-coded)
- HDMA and scrolling effects
- diverse layer 3 backgrounds

With all these features included, I still want the hack to be smw-ish.
That means that I try to use Mario-like graphics, avoid using sampled music / keep SMW's original instruments
and not overwhelm the player with new aspects in gameplay.

But before talking too much, here are the screenshots!



#1 - #3: Displaying the OWs from the first three worlds here. I'm not happy with the border, but I had not enough time to create a better one.


#4 - #5: The first level called "Lotus Hills". As the name includes, this levels' features are the lotus plants.


#6: A level where jumping is disabled, moving on platforms is the key here.


#7 - #8: A vertical level called "Digging Deeper". Mario is able to destroy small blocks using the X button is this level.


#9 - #10: The silhouette level from the beach world.


#11: Reef Diving with a lot of currents and a touch of mazes.


#12- #13: Interior and exterior views on the pirate ship located in the beach world's bay.


#14 - #15: "Shot Forest" with apples. Should explain everything.


#16: A fortress level where all is about fire.


#17: Probably already known, my favourite level called "Blaaargs!". Contains some line-guided passages.


#18 - #19: Frozen cave where pressing a switch causes the ice to melt and enemies to move.


#20: Just a small screen of my snowlevel set-up, haven't built a level there yet.


#21 - #22: Small excerpts from two cloud levels, one at day and the other one in the evening.


#23 - #24: "Hot Dry Land", the introduction into the final world. It's planned that hot meteors shall fall from the sky.


So finally, I have to say thanks for your attention and it would be a pleasure to read your comments and thoughts onto my work!
I will definitely keep it up until the hack is finished, so be prepared to play it once!
That looks really neat. Looking forward to play it ;)

Each level is very beautiful. Some look a bit cramped but I hope that doesn't turn out to be an issue.
So this is what you were working on, huh? All the screenshots look pretty sweet! The only thing I would criticize would be the clouds for the beach level; they look a bit odd with a black outline. Also, the music sounds really good in general as well. Good luck with your hack man, and I hope you notify me when you release it!
Thanks for your positive responses!

@Masterlink: The BG always seemed wrong to me and I guess you found what has to be edited. #w{=3}
Woah, this hack looks pretty sweet. Good work Darius!

Guess I might as well release the soundtrack for my kaizo hack too (50+ ports)
Thank you!

I've hoped to find a thread from you, but sadly, I didn't.

That's because I haven't made it yet. #w{=3}

It'll be up sometime today probably.
Spoiler alert: I'm using some of your ports

Ancient Dolphin (SD3) and In A Snow Bound Land (DKC2)
This looks fantastic so far. I love the graphics style how it has a bit of a cartoon feel to it. The level design looks nice also, especially the silhouette in particular. This hack is gonna be a definite to try as soon as it is released.
By the way, I really like the overworld border how it looks like it's on an actual map.

Thank you! Yeah that was the plan with the border.. #w{=P}
unbelieveable great overworld gfx ! if they're self made then you did a fantastic job there.
Nice to see that the levels got some nice features here and there (like the "press x" cave)
I have never seen such a nice OW Border in SMW - well done !
I really hope that you will finish your hack, because what I see so far is really impressing me :-)

Keep it up, great work m8 !
