Just a quick update, everyone! I've created a new poll which will run for the next 60 days, so let the voting begin ;)

On a slightly different note, I've added a link to my Discord server at the bottom of the game's description (below the download link) for those who'd like to chat about my SMBX projects (old and new). Feel free to join the party!

No spoilers please (use spoiler option)! And answers to the poll should ideally be anonymous as well.

People must not think they are as likable and memorable as the other boss fights.

Most likely... Bear in mind that I was experimenting a lot with the boss fights so obviously not all of them would feel the same to players.

I suck at platforming games, so usually I cheat, but for once I won't cheat at all.

Thanks for this awesome episode! :-) I especially like that the levels are so different from each other and that the sixth world, despite being the "semifinal", is so humorous and lively rather than ominous. And really a spectacular
Spoiler: show
, though somewhat sad,
finale. Only a few things I would change:

Documentation
  • Please point out on the forum that this episode contains semi-mature content (talk about killings up to massacres, non-gory human and humanoid corpses). Some players - and parents - will want to avoid content like this, while other players may be especially interested in it.
Bugs
  • Please make sure you get a 100 % score after beating the final boss. I almost set out to do all sorts of things to the "easter egg" in Perplexing Pyramid, hoping that there was more behind it once you've visited the last room in the Hub. Next thing I would have done is scrutinizng the jungle temple to try and revive the dead god. And then I would have tried to talk to every single owl in the game again (after all, IIRC they are "not what they seem"), which would have caused me to play the entire game again, looking for a secret that doesn't exist after all. Thank goodness I've read this thread first ^^
  • In the flight scene in Height Fright, you can get blown off the chain. This bug only occurs right when collecting the Yoshi Coin at the end of the ride or moments later. Strangely enough, it also depends on whether the hero is small or big (I forgot which size caused the bug, but I suppose you, being a dev, can easily check this out).
  • In Tumultuous Train, the shy guys with helmets can hurt the hero even when they are still in their pipes.
  • Once so far, shortly after collecting a 1UP in the water in Lost Lava Lands, the hero didn't get hurt despite the water having turned hot.
Tweaks
  • Please make the "Mrs Saturn" (?) in 1-2 easier to reach. I thought that was a secret and so skipped entire worlds hoping to find a Leaf as soon as possible.
  • Please prevent the player from collecting dozens of 1UPs by spin-jumping on the dancing shy guys outside the jungle temple. Maybe you could make them immune to spin-jumps and protect them by placing a bridge over them so they can still poke the heroes from below EDIT: , like in Yoshi's Island /EDIT.
  • Please make sure the gate in the hub stays open for the rest of the game, after you've talked to Bombette.
  • I think you can as well remove the room in the Hub where you can look up which stars you've collected already. Looking them up in the respective world proper won't take any longer, I guess. Perhaps the room is better used for additional flavour. EDIT: Or indeed, how about a soundcheck room? For every star you collect, a ?-block containing the BGM of that level appears above the respective door. Okay, I suppose that would take a while to implement 8-P Btw, nice BGM throughout the game :) /EDIT
(Oops, this is getting longer and longer... Mind you, Reign of the Gatekeepers really deserved getting featured :-) )

I was playing with SMBX2 beta 3, mostly as Mario and occasionally as Luigi.

I'll try to respond to your points later but first I have to tell that Shadow_Flame has become inactive. I haven't seen him for a long time

so I'm not sure if your points will be taken into action eventually

I believe in three 72 mm large, 690 g heavy iron balls as my lords and saviours.

It's not worth to use the legacy editor anymore these days. Get SMBX2 and PGE, it will improve your experience significantly. Here's why.

I see :( But thanks for letting me know :) Take your time; I guess this amount of feedback is rather overwhelming.

Hi Candle! Many thanks for your detailed feedback, it's very helpful :) I'm chuffed that you enjoyed the game and I'll make sure to fix the issues that you've mentioned. I'm not as active on SMBX as I used to be but I'll get back to you guys as soon as I can with an update...

UPDATE: I've fixed most of the bugs (see new version 3.9 in download link) but have decided to keep the star check room for a reason that I can't reveal ;) I've now added a final 50th star to the game so hopefully players should be able to get 100% upon completion. Also, I'm not quite sure how to keep that gate in the hub area permanently down once you talk to Bombette. Do you happen to know how to make a 'one-off' event?
