This is a remake of Super Mario RPG for SNES that I started on 7/18/2010 and it went live on 4/20/15. Luigi has been replaced by Bowser, Toad has been replaced by Mallow, and Link has been replaced by Geno in the character selection portion. The characters are silly and attacks draw inspiration from attacks from in SMRPG. I'm a MASSIVE fan of the original and have played it over a hundred times and this is my labor of love. Using my strategy guides and copy of the game, I made a 1:1 recreation of the original into 2D form. There are very few times I deviated from the source material so that I could create a very familiar vibe to a new face. Experience awesome boss fights and relive the adventure in 2D glory.
Now as for the game. The game is 100% beatable as all characters. You can choose to play as any character at any time. I felt restricting character access would take away from simply enjoying the game. If you are ever lost in town, this is an "RPG" so make sure to talk to everybody. *TWO PLAYER WARNING* There is one point in the sunken ship where you can go into multiple doors to solve puzzles. Both players need to be inside these rooms to complete the puzzle due to how the split screen works in this segment. So go out and collect all 7 stars, use the shiny stone in Molleville to access the special boss. Defeat the special boss and unlock the brand new world I created to tribute another personal favorite game.
The game starts off pretty smooth and easy to get you caught up to speed on how things are going to work. By the time you hit the third world and enter Moleville the difficulty will start to ramp up. Make sure to stick it out to the later levels as they do become more and more spectacular as you go on. Try not to let the simplicity in the beginning to be too off-putting. I chose to keep the screenshots simple because I just want to show the basics of map design being similar and that sprites are updated. You could say this game is not 100% finished because normal enemies are simply goombas, etc. in a lot of cases. I'm not that great at sprite work and it takes so much time that I had to compromise. It's safe to say this is the final version because I don't think I'll get the urge to update the sprites fully. All of the important sprites like main characters and bosses have appropriate sprites. I may end up doing one last update to this game as I realized I kind of failed on the dialogue. Some of it is still kind of placeholder... ish... and needs to be updated. Especially since the dialogue of the original game was so good.
You can watch playthrough videos on my youtube channel if you would like to get a feel for the game or if you would rather watch it instead. They can be found here:

*IF YOU HAVE SMBX ON YOUR PC ALREADY*
Just put the game on the desktop and play from the icon in the folder. The game has been modified a lot so merging it with existing SMBX folders will screw up your other SMBX games.
This is my first experience with anything game development related. I had a passion and I put in a lot of effort but it is not perfectly refined. If you play it, I at least hope you have a little bit of fun and enjoy some of the themes and throwbacks of SMRPG.
I hope you enjoy this labor of love.
