LEGATVM ALBATI



Welcome to the thread of my new Kaizo-Hack called "LEGATVM ALBATI",

Now that my old Hack, IUDICIUM TRIBUNALIS is accepted on the site Iīve started a new hack.

This project is still at its very beginning, so i have no idea how long this hack is going to be and how difficult this will eventually be. Though, I aim for light Kaizo this time.

The hackīs name also isnīt final. I just searched for some random latin stuff again. Yes this time my hack is going to be entirely latin. Even if no one will understand my levelnames or message-boxes i hope the level design is going to be enjoyable and creative at least.

Speaking of which: Before i get lost in preambles of a project, of which i donīt even know if I will be able to finish it (I mean it took me 1 and a half year to finish a 9-exit hack) I wonīt make any promises at my current state. Perhaps i can finish it. Perhaps not. For now, Iīll just show you some screenshots of my first level. I doubt it will be the 1st level of the hack, but itīs definitely going to be a quite early one. itīs also the only one that I call finished right now. Iīm working on multiple levels simultaneously so perhaps i can show you several other levels soon. Depends on how long it will take until i can get creative again and if Iīm motivated to hack.

However, here are the screenshots now:





Looking at these screenshots for myself, I think I should add some decorations to the dirt, but I hope the level design you can see so far is fine >w<


As said, that's sadly all for now. My updates here probably won't be very frequent, since I usually work relatively slow, but I promise to show off all the levels, once Iīve finished them.

Anyway, please comment and give feedback!

--------------------
Seems good so far. Be sure to apply that patch that makes spinjumping on bombs consistent, as that has always annoyed me.
Looks pretty interesting from the screen shots. I'd be interested to see how difficult it is. What difficulty are you aiming for?

Do you know if it's going to be a hack for speedrunners? Or maybe a hack where you have to use savestates? Or sth like Super Dram World 2, a hack with some setups where the chance you can parse them equals 50% but you can beat it without savestates?
Was there anything wrong with my last layout? Did you think it was offensive? It was just a joke
Thanks for your feedback, much appreciated.

This exists?? O_o
I wonder, why Iīve never heard of this one before. Iīve already patched my ROM to SA-1, but Iīll browse for it and try to implement it. The vanilla explosions are indeed frustrating.

Actually I donīt have a plan right now what kind of hack this is going to be. I mean thereīs only 1 stage finished #tb{:p}

The only thing I can say currently is, that I plan to make this a rather long kaizo hack (perhaps 30-40 exits), but since I aim for a high level of creativity as well, this entirely depends on with how many ideas I can come up.


Again, thank you very much for your feedback :3
Iīll try to finish an other level this weekend. So stay tuned for new screenshots #tb{;)}


There are also some other minor things I can announce, that Iīve planned for this hack:
- Every stage shall revolve around its own gimmick
- Predominantly this is going to be a vanilla-hack
- Every stage is going to present a start-kaizo-trap
- Every stage is going to present a goal-kaizo-trap as well #tb{;)}
- Every stage is going to include a (more or less) difficult to reach moon

Kaizo light can range anywhere from korosu/banzai to Kaizo 3, is there another hack with similar difficulty you are aiming for?

Edit: btw I'm excited to see how this hack pans out #smw{:TUP:}

Aah, now I understand your question^^

To answer it: I aim for a hack that is a tad more difficult than Banzai Mario World. However since only 1 stage is finished so far I have no idea, if I can/will stick to this, but we will see as i create more stages #tb{:j}

That's pretty much the same question I asked. There are a few harder kaizo light hacks than Kaizo 3, like maybe Horrifying Mario World or Super Dram World 2.

Due to some technical difficulties finishing my next level delayed a bit >_>

Itīs inspired by "JUMP" and "My little Puzzles 3". I guess itīs obvious whatīs the gimmick here #tb{:DD}

Even if this is finished "per se" Iīm not satisfied. I think some parts are still way too difficult and Iīm looking forward to make several sections a tad easier. If you have any proposals feel free to share your thoughts #tb{:]}









--------------------
Really digging the whole gimmick of avoiding every single keyhole.

I think you should sneak in a bit more action and place some more keyholes and enemies, mainly in the first 3 screenshots (if that doesn't screw up the sprite memory), while keeping it simpler at the same time!
Long time, no see...

Yeah itīs been a while. So enjoy this video, which shows that I still make progress, even if I just slowly progress.

Video


Itīs a castle level. Its name means "abundance and poverty". As you will see its gimmick are powerups. You avoid them in the 1st room and you have to use them cleverly in the 2nd room. I donīt know in which world this castle will be. Depends on how difficult the other castles are going to be #tb{^V^}

I remastered the Key-stage at several parts. Itīs more fair / less frustrating now and I tried to follow your advice and added more enemies here and there. Thanks for your tips #tb{:]}

--------------------
Long time, no see... (again)

Another Video


Itīs a semi-water level inspired by S.N.N.īs vldcx-entry "Wetsuit Columns". My levelīs name means "magical water" (cause you can move the water by pressing L/R).

Yeah, thatīs all for now again. Hope you enjoy! #tb{;)}

--------------------
You have been evolving on your ending kaizo traps as of lately, so good job on that #tb{:D} The mushroom level is pretty good and simple, although there are some parts where a powerup supposed to be avoided could be simply replaced with munchers (like in that one bouncing koopa section with flowers), so I'd redesign that.

As for the latest level, I feel the first room is alright. I could feel the inspiration from SNN's entry lol. I'd reduce the waiting in the last room before the midpoint or just the timer, as the platform sinks way too slowly and that could be boring, especially if there are no obstacles beside the timer.
Also, remove the bubbles in the dropdown before the door in the previous room since you seem to not use them. Otherwise, nice work on both levels!

Thanks Katerpie for your feedback. Iīll definitely redesign both stages with the points you mentioned in mind. I didnīt recognise it myself, but youīre right, that both levels have some "weak" parts and Iīll do my best to make these more interesting, too #tb{:]}
