Before anyone asks, let me say that Mario is Missing is NOT canceled. As is often the case when I go on resource creation sprees, I decided to start another hack.
This is a hack loosely based on the style of SMB1. The only thing it really has in common is that each world has 4 levels.
The last one will actually have 8.
Where is Mario's mustache? Well, he's supposed to be around 12 years old in this hack. What 12-year-old do you know has a mustache? Ehh...It was the best way I could think of, besides removing the gloves, which was done for me, to de-age Mario. Anyway, the plot is simple, as it always is.
I'm going with a different style for the Overworld in this hack. World 1 is your typical grassland.
That Green Star is this hack's Yoshi Coin stand-in. Each level, besides the castles, has 3 of them. In each World, there's one level with a secret exit leading to World 9. These exits can only be accessed by collecting all 9 of that World's Green Stars.
That Koopa will either get fried or stomped.
Jumpin' Piranha Plants might be the toughest enemies in this level simply because you can't jump on them.
Like in the original SMB1, 1-2 takes place underground. It even uses the same music!
Going for a Green Star
It's an athletic level that introduces moving platforms.
It also introduces Parakoopas.
The Green Star Blocks in this game serve as the barriers to the World 9 warps. As stated earlier, you need 9 Green Stars to pass them.
Yep, it's a castle.
In addition to introducing castle stuff like lava and Podoboos, this castle also introduces Goomba-generating pipes, and makes pretty heavy use of them.
Watch out! A Goomba might just land on your head!
Here's the reason why there are so many Goomba-generating pipes in this castle. The boss is a giant Goomba, but he's not too tough. He IS a Goomba, and he IS the first boss.
World 2 takes the Mario Tweens to a sunny beach.
This sure looks like paradise. The Koopas are enjoying themselves so much that they're jumping for joy!
Can't wait until the shell hits that block on the left. BTW, this level is my entry for GeminiSunfall's Summer Level Design Contest.
Obligatory water level
One of these pipes may lead somewhere.
Uh-oh...Just woke Rip up.
