Couldn't you have made a separate sprite for the stump?

The stump should be a background like in Kirby games(I think). If I'm wrong, then just do what you want to do with it.

I might just change it to that actually. I've been having a problem with throwing bombs on the slopes.

edit: changed it to smaller slopes.

I liked this boss. It was enjoyable and fun. But actually it's just pick a bomb, hit the boss, if there are too many boos, hit them. You should make him throw his apples which you need to grab and throw at him. That would make much more fun. And instead of shooting bullet bills you could make him shoot these small clouds like in the real games. Whispy Woods doesn't disappear when he's defeated. He just looks at you with its 'hit' face and that's it. In the Dual Woods fight, if you kill one of the Woods, the beaten one still shoots boos. You should make that generator disappear when that one is gone. Oh and I disliked this: (Look at the cursor)

One BGO is missing there :P
And Whispy Woods is actually behind the Treetop on its head.

Nice boss fight :)

Thank you for the feedback Mudkip. The reason it is bombs and boos is because that is all I could come up with at the time. They were meant to be representative of the falling apples and gusts of wind he shoots. As for him disappearing, that's just me using Mother Brain and not putting in a background, although I did like the effect of having Whispy's cleared stumps left behind. Lastly, the BGO thing is just me not aligning things properly...

Anyways, I will try to update the battle. I plan on ripping some graphics, and seeing if I can get the falling apples to work.
Once again, thanks for the feedback. I appreciate it.

Looks nice for a first boss battle. If you do some reworking with the custom graphics and custom npcs this could look even better than before.

An updated/redone version of this boss will come soon. I am still testing and figuring out how to put this all together, but in the meantime here is a teaser image.

You could just make them replace shyguys.

That seems like an good idea. Shy guys into apples, and the top are just generators.

Wouldn't tweeters fit more because of the bouncing behaviour which the apples in Kirby games have aswell?

Your right, but I came up with that later.

I decided to go with another npc, to get just the right "bounce". Also, the way I set up the boss battle, I had to forgo some ideas.

This means you can't pick up the bouncing apples.

@GLuigiX No. The sprites are from Kirby Super Star (SNES). I got the ripped sprites from Spriter's Resource. Also the mspaint version was more to have a quick mockup for the battle. Adding in the custom sprites took a surprisingly long time...

@FanofSMBX I specifically chose not to allow that to avoid an exploit.

Haha, I feel you, I did a rip of Flappy Bird sprites yesterday and it literally took all afternoon. The pain of a SMBX graphic editor :P
