Here's a hack I want to make. I've been working on it for the past month, and it's called
Yep, it's been 6 years, and I'm proud to present the VERY FIRST My Little Pony-themed Super Mario World hack on SMWCentral!
Please note that I'm still trying to get this project up off the ground, and every screenshot except for maybe the title screen is subject to change, perhaps a lot.
This is basically going to be a video game version of the Season 5 finale of My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic. I liked that 2 parter, so I'm making a game. The general plot is going to be similar to the original episode, but, as you can probably see from the screenshots above, I'm going to change details so the story works from a gameplay perspective.
Being a gamer obsessed with fan games, I don't like how the My Little Pony fanbase continuously produces crappy, memey shovelware and treats the show and franchise as if it's a meme, so I'm determined to make an amazing, epic, show-accurate game.
This isn't going to be your ordinary, everyday Mario World hack. In this game, you play as Princess Twilight Sparkle. This is NOT simply Mario in costume. Oh no! OH NO! I'm going out of my way to change the game's physics and Mario's abilities and such to be more fitting for everyone's favorite Alicorn princess.
In this game, you get free flight, just like Kirby. Twilight Sparkle can also fire magic blasts that go in a straight line or she can charge power for a bigger and more powerful blast that pierces terrain.
The game doesn't follow Mario's normal power-down system. Getting hit will simply cause you to lose a heart, and you won't lose any abilities.
This game will have no power-ups, no ? blocks, and no pipes except for the time warp portals. There will be no time limit. The game is going to try to focus more on exploration than general platforming. It's also going to have lots of cutscenes and be very story based.
The gameplay in general is going to be much more similar to Kirby than Mario. It's going to feature many gimmicks you typically find in Kirby games, such as Bomb Blocks, Star Blocks, etc.
O.K., so now, the worlds. You probably already know what they are though.
Flim Flam Country
(This world will be boss/cutscene only and will have no actual levels, just like Kirby World 7s.)
There's also going to be a Special World (because what would a Super Mario World hack be without one?) I'll get into that later.
In this game, you're not going to see Worlds 4, 5, and 6 for only 5 seconds. Each world is going to be just as developed as the first one, each with its own set of levels, lore, and story.
Yes, and Twilight Sparkle does eventually get back to Cloudsdale, even without the scroll. To do so, you have to defeat, Sombra, Chrysalis, etc. If you want me to tell you the details, I will.
Almost every level will have 5 tokens that channel Friendship energy called Friendship Tokens. They're everywhere. You may have to go into secret areas or complete side quests to get them, and you HAVE to get some to access the last level of the world. They're basically exactly like Sun Stones, Code Cubes, etc. from modern Kirby games. Please don't fly over levels. You will not collect enough if you do this.
I'll be posting more information, more complete screenshots, and some videos later. I'll also release a World 1 demo.
So tell me your thoughts on this hack! And PLEASE follow the forum rules!
