The Invasion 2: Hard Mode

Postby Sapphire Bullet Bill » Fri Jul 01, 2016 1:08 pm

The Invasion 2 (The original episode created by redigit) is back and harder than before.

Youtube Trailer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=apP4J5q_eQk

Mainly all Items were changed to increase the difficulty.

Super Leaves ---> Fire Flowers
Tanooki Suits ---> Fire Flowers
Yoshis -----> Ice Flowers
Hammer Suits -----> Ice Flowers
Blue Shoe -----> Green Shoe

Also, a new soundtrack.

It doesn't really feel any harder than before. Simply changing powerups won't make it any harder because the basic difficulty is still there. Also, there's this, which is a kaizo version of The Invasion 2.

Eliminating all the good items won't make the episode difficult, you gotta completely edit the levels make them harder.

It would be better if you eliminate all the items.

I think you should edit also the NPC placement in which it will be challenging (e.g. Jumping Parakoopas/Paragoombas in cramped areas) and the whole level, of course.

This seems to be the exact same episode just with different power-ups. Basically what Linik said, removing strong power-ups doesn't imply increased difficulty if the levels itself are designed to be easy. Add more threats like gaps, spikes, lava, precision platforming or powerful enemies etc. accordingly, and also try editing the levels in general (e.g. with custom graphics), then you have something new.

Still using the legacy editor? Get SMBX2 and PGE, it will improve your experience significantly. Here's why. And remember, Yoshis are tools to be used and discarded.

I have a better suggestion: try to make your own levels from scratch instead of altering other people's levels. It will help you improve as a level designer (as people can tell you what you did right and wrong), and you and your levels will be better off because of it. Feel free to take notes on what other people did, but don't copy what they did as that will only make you look bad.
I've decided to cancel SMBXville Under Seige. After my 1st Senior year of college, I realized I wouldn't have enough time to devote to finishing my four-level episode. Apologies to those who cared.

Well, I guess it only made some parts harder.
The First world is practically the same.
Still, I didn't want to end up flying over each level, and the Hammer Suit was incredibly overpowered.
In ways, it is harder.

Well let's be honest here, you altered the levels in The Invasion 2 to make The Invasion Way 2 Hard. However, you made your own levels with it as well and the edits in some of the levels make them look vastly different from the originals, so I'll give you that as well.

It's not, it's likely that you're not downloading it properly. When you open the download link, make sure you click on "Download through your browser".

You can only make remakes of your own episodes.
