SMBX Episode idea thread

Can't believe Nobody in the history of the SMBX forums (This forums) made a topic like this before! ^_^"
Anyways, if you got a interesting idea for a good SMBX episode (for either original 1.3, 2.0, NSMBX (Not sure, haven't tried it yet) or 38A (1.4.x)), then share it with us. But please don't rudely criticize anyone's ideas by saying bad things about the idea. Plus, don't steal any ideas and claim them as your own (That includes stealing characters from other episodes, stealing others' levels for your own creations, stealing plots, etc.). Also, if your episode idea is a boss rush episode, it's allowed, as long as there's a good plot.

I'll start:
My idea for a SMBX episode is based off the "Mega Play" arcade version of Sonic the Hedgehog*!

So enough talk, let's share some ideas!!! :D
*If you don't know how the arcade version plays, here's a video of it:
Spoiler: show

Useful thread, I would like to see another sequel of The Invasion and The Princess Cliche

But... What's the problem with stealing characters? If an user finds the perfect character for his creations it's not wrong to take it from an episode (giving credit of course) unless the character is made for that episode specifically

I know, but I'm pointing the finger at the guy (In which we all know what he's famous for) for stealing a certain og SMBX member's episode series. But otherwise, as long as the original creator is okay with this, then it's allowed

Using content from an episode that it is not made available for general use (posted in the Graphics forum, etc.) should not be used without the creator's direct permission. This includes graphics, scripts, and any other elements that belong to the episode that are not publicly shared for the purpose of distributing them as resources. Even just giving credit isn't sufficient, you need direct permission

Well, as Firey said, it's allowed as long as the creator is okay with that, thanks for the confirmation anyways

All of my ideas are reserved for my projects but if i were to say a random idea for an episode, i would like to see a metroid type of episode.

It would be really cool to compile the best levels from the Levels subforums (both old and new) into one episode, though that's obviously also problematic permission-wise

A puzzle episode that focuses on using the SMBX cheats to solve the puzzles.

This episode idea sounds interesting, and very gimmicky.

An open world SMBX episode where the player would go through areas on a Metroidvania style, with a health meter and upgrades to find along the way.

How about an episode inspired by old Mega Man games? You have 6-8 levels you can choose from, and after completing a level you'll have a new power-up at your disposal. There's a chance an episode like this would even get completed, since it does not require 100 levels. I would go for this if I didn't already have something else on my mind.

BUMP! Because why not Zoidberg?



I just got the interesting idea for a creative SMBX episode that looks like what the famous bootleg company, Hummer Team, would make if they were SMBX members.


Also, we got a good amount of newcomers, and I'd like to hear some of their ideas! Plus, I'll allow episodes made off the NSMBX engine! ^^"

I like the idea of an episode where you can visit any world in any order. Kinda like Breath of the Wild meets SMBX.

An episode inspired by Super Mario Land(1 and 2) would be nice...

This has happened a few times already, e.g. Reign of the Gatekeeper by Shadow_Flame, or Super Mario and the Ancient Stars by Tomex.
