Introduction:

The Mushroom Kingdom had lived in peace ever since Bowser's plans for world invasion through the power of the Sacred Star were ruined by Mario and his friends. However, unnerving news from the neighboring kingdom of Shiverburn Nova reached her highness, Queen Daisy. With the royal flagship and her most trusted allies, she began the journey to confront Bowser, who had obtained a new kind of power that would ensure his superiority.

The episode begins with an assault to Bowser's palace. Can you solve the perplexing puzzles in the mysterious world of Shiverburn Nova and put an end to Bowser's plans?

Features:

* 4 playable characters (Mario, Luigi, Peach, Link)
* Over 100 levels
* Multi-phase boss fights and minibosses
* Unlimited lives
* Takes advantage of LunaLua and SMBX 2.0 features
* Main graphics by Sednaiur

The remake:

Originally released in 2016. The episode has gone through a major overhaul in 2018-2019. Some of the changes include:

* Puzzles made visually simpler and more pleasant
* Story and atmosphere changed for the lighter
* Every existing level partly or completely remade, many removed
* Plenty of completely new levels, especially in the latter half of the episode
* Many levels no longer include a key
* Added a possibility to skip a certain amount of levels
* Overall difficulty lowered
* Miniboss introduction levels made much shorter
* Music changed for all levels
* Player graphics converted to png to prevent crashing

Some comments about the episode from the beta test:

definitely one of the greatest episodes of all time, I'm putting it on my 10/10 list. this was a breath of fresh air after a long time,your work never ceases to amaze me. - TheNewGuy

This episode is very very amazing, all the puzzles (especially the final ones) are really elaborate and really satisfy you when you find a solution. And the story is just outstanding, I almost forgot I was playing SMBX, and thought I was playing an RPG or reading a book! This is actually the very first time I feel bad for a character leaving in a SMBX episode, it was very very very very good. Amazing experience. - 8lue Storm

Still using the legacy editor? Get SMBX2 and PGE, it will improve your experience significantly. Here's why.

Enjl stated the following:
Not good for releasing episodes, since there are bound to be changes to new features between PAL and Beta 4. You COULD still release for it, but it's likely the episode will need some bugfixes and redesigns in places once Beta 4 is out.
So yeah, it seems to be allowed.

However this episode may require a lot of work to redo if their features don't work in B4

Looks really interesting tho

I'd like to point out, that the episode also works on beta 3. Just much smoother on PAL, which is why it's recommended.

Really digging the new world map and organization. Maybe its because I didn't download PAL, but in regular SMBX2 when nearing the end of the intro level, some text boxes appear 2wice in a row and it continues to do so until exiting the level.

This definitely does not happen on PAL. Anything earlier than beta 3 is untested with this episode and not recommended. Hopefully you won't run into trouble or errors later.

also I MIGHT do a recorded playthrough of this, once I get my hands on a recording device that doesn't have a ridiculous time limit or lags my computer.

I can see you improved a lot over your last episode, the puzzles seem a lot more interesting and unique than the in the last game. Well done.

Thanks. The first episode was more of a platformer anyway.

The download has been updated. A total of twelve levels were hotfixed or slightly changed.

Currently extracting the contents of the zip file, it seems that the episode still makes use of .GIFs for graphics (e.g. the blocks appear to be gifs). As a result the total size of the folder is quite a bit larger than what it could be.
Anyway, if the difficulty has been lowered then I'll probably end up enjoying this episode more than Enigmatic 1. I love how much you can come up with that fits inside the space of a single screen!
BTW, are you planning to make any other episodes soon? I absolutely loved Mario Prime and Enigmatic 1, and you're a really talented puzzle level designer!

Yeah, the graphics are mostly .gifs. Did not change them mostly because disk space and download times don't cause big problems today.
I'll most likely start working with SMBX again once Beta 4 is out. Until that happens, I'm taking a break. Thanks for the compliments and hope you enjoy the episode.
