Hello! I built my own Super Mario Maker on my PC using Direct X. It wasn't easy and took a lot of time. Here are links to my Youtube videos.
I think the second world will be a Mountain Range.
World 2-1: Mole Mountain
I managed to complete more of the Mario algorithm. I have now fully encoded Caped Mario's flight algorithm. Mario's cape will open to catch air when he reaches maximum flight altitude. This is the correct behavior from Super Mario World. Note that the flying algorithm in my demo is slightly modified and simplified from the original version in Super Mario World.
In this world, I tried to experiment with both X and Y scrolling. I also tried to model the special Monty Mole enemy.
World 2-2 - Conveyer Belt Tunnel
I felt as though the moving conveyer belt was not used enough in most Super Mario games (except for Super Mario Bros 2, which was NOT a Super Mario game). This stage features the conveyer belt.
I also have side areas that feature Mini Mario and flying Caped Mario. I am debating whether I should keep Mini Mario. There are all sorts of complications because he occupies half the width of Small Mario. On the other hand, there are so many potential side areas that could feature Mini Mario.
Super Mario is, of course, a trademark of Nintendo.
I got these Mario, Luigi, and enemy sprites from someone named AwesomeZack.
I got the foreground tiles from TetraVega.
I got the background tiles and other enemy sprites from jdaster64.
I got other background tiles from CrapCom.
I decided to experiment with bi-directional pipe transports and make a maze stage. On a whim, I decided to use a night environment.
I made a stage featuring Super Mario World's staple monster - the Charging Chuck. You know, the big hulking turtle with the football helmet that made you think of the big a-hole who picked on you in elementary school. I made 4 variants of this Koopa:
1. Tackling Chuck - Will just run at you.
2. Football Chuck - Kicks footballs at you.
3. Baseball Chuck - Throws baseballs at you. This variant significantly differs from the one in SMW. He throws baseballs at longer intervals (3 seconds). If a baseball hits a wall, it will bounce off (like Snifit's bullets in SMB2 / Doki Doki Panic).
4. Leaping Chuck - Jumps at you. Also different from the SMW species, which only jump vertically in the air.
I made 2 big changes to Charging Chuck. Here, if he catches a Koopa shell, he will throw it right back at you. Also, if you swipe your cape at him, he will catch it and rip it off (I am contemplating of whether this is a good idea.)
I also made a bonus area with that other staple of the Super Mario franchise - the moving platform.
I made a stage featuring boiling tar and Ice Mario. Ice Mario can freeze enemies into Ice Blocks, which can be used to kill enemies. Iceballs can also be used to freeze tar into stone blocks
I also made another bonus area with more moving platforms. It looks like the footprint collision mechanic is a little buggy... Wonder how I will fix it. (Update: I corrected the collision mechanic on this.)
World 2-6: Brick Bash
There were a few levels in Super Mario Bros 3 where the challenge was finding the exit from the level. In Super Mario World, that challenge was restricted to the Ghost House (which it should not have been, and yes, I plan on making a few Haunted House levels of my own). Well, here we have a very large underground area where it might be tricky to find your way out of. It has 6 side areas but I only showed 2 of them in this video.
