[CC11, 19th place] Ocean with Orange Oranges

Postby h2643 » Fri Aug 14, 2015 2:02 pm

Hello, I'm here with another vanilla level. Yet again, it was made using PGE Editor.

This level is somewhat unusual - you still play as Mario Bros. but your main enemies are... Kirbys! Also it has a weird gimmick - you push various buttons and collect treasures to progress.
And it uses vanilla graphics from GBA Kirby games only!

Now let's look at screencreams:

This level has a secret SMW Star, which requires you to collect all the Dragon Coins and ends with a boss battle, which gives you a SMB3 Star upon defeating.

And here's level reviews from CC11:

19. h2643 - Ocean with Orange Oranges (7.76/10)
  • Bomber57 (7.0/10)
    • Pretty cool what you did with the different kirbies. I especially liked the ones that sucked you towards them. Parts of the level were either too empty or too busy. The Meta Knight battle was unfair because his Galaxia projectiles moved too fast, so it became hard to dodge them. Having to fight him with bombs on top of that is rough because of how many hits it takes to beat him using those.

    • KIRBYYY!!! Oh man, this level was just amazingly designed like as of what the whole Kirby series did and such but into SMBX. I do like that you explained about this level that all of the Kirbies are evil to the player but what I really love is how they act differently and there are also quite a lot of them. I also like the whole differency of the power-ups acting as mushrooms in this area like the whole SMB, SMB2 & SMW mushrooms and even the Z2 heart are having different amount of food and such based of the Kirby games. I also love the whole design of this area and I couldn't really find any issues. Well, about the boss though, it does have a challenge for sure but I find the mushroom generator to be too fast to respawn so with that you have like no chance of dying even if the boss' projectiles are faster than regular speed from the original boss' sprite. Overall I really liked this level a lot.
    Chad (8.0/10)
    • This is a Kirby level done really well. It's full of switch events that defeat enemies or destroy/create blocks, which are carefully thought out and reminiscent of the series. There's a great variety of enemies and land formations to make the level feel complex and alive, while also providing lots of little secrets to encourage exploration and curiosity. The occasional swimming sections are a neat addition too, and enemy placements are moderately difficult to keep players engaged. However, the boss is somewhat cheap, because with frequently-generating Mushrooms, you almost can't die. But at the same time, the Mushrooms are in fact needed because Meta Knight's swords fly fast enough that you almost can't dodge a second consecutive one. I understand wanting to make it different from a typical SMB3 Bowser battle, but making the player take almost-required hits and heal interchangably somewhat negates the point of difficulty. Also, the second star is practically a freebie because the Dragon Coins really don't require you to go out of your way that much, and while the inhaling-Kirbys are really imaginative, they don't serve much of a purpose.
    Quill (6.3/10)
    • I liked the Kirby elements you had in this level. It made the player think about what enemy did what which I thought was neat. The level itself is alright. The design is good, but doesn't stand out. I did appreciate the variety in the terrain and the enemies. The boss was a little disappointing as SMB3 Bowser takes so long to kill.
    Valtteri (8.0/10)
    • As a big fan of "Kirby: Nightmare in Dream Land" I can't not like this level. Someone's put a lot of effort into porting tileset from the game. The level is also very good. The possessed Kirbys are weird but the idea works. I like them a lot. The cinematic before the boss is nice, too.

I hope you'll enjoy playing it!

I love the Kirby NPCs though lmao. When you said you were making a Kirby level I didn't think it was this literal lmao.

"OCEAN WITH ORANGE ORANGES" made by h2643

REVIEW:

LEVEL DESIGN: 8.75/10

The level is so cool! As Kirbies are enemies along your way and a battle with Meta Knight which takes for ages. My favourite kirby enemy was Hammer Kirby and Needle Kirby. The other ones were so easy to overcome. And most of the power-ups were really common to find. But a Kirby level is a rare-type level in SMBX community.

GRAPHICS & MUSIC: 10/10

I liked the graphics so much! Once I saw them, I thought I played Kirby: Nightmare in Dreamland for a while. And the music is better than anything. Orange Ocean is one of my favourite music in Kirby Series. Good Job h2643!

TOTAL: 9.375/10 (Excellent level! :D)

Well you see luigi, when a paisano puts his spaghetti noodle in a mamma mia’s ravioli, a little bambino covered in prosciutto comes out about nine months later -Mario

I believe in Mario as my lord and Savior, if you do, put this image in your signature.

I might not be around much longer.

I have one more project to complete and then I'm done with it all.

If I disappear it means I'm gone for good. Don't bother looking for me.
