[SMBX2] [Minisode] Captain Toad: Prism Star Quest

By Team CTGTOS

As a result of Marioman2007 and I finally finishing the main framework for replicating the gameplay of Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker, we planned on adding levels themed around "Captain Toad's Adventures" in our main project, Captain Toad Goes to Outer Space. However, we found out that it was fun to make short puzzles and levels themed around the mechanic of "being unable to jump". This resulted in the birth of our new side project - Captain Toad: Prism Star Quest!

STORYLINE
Today is a big day for the Mushroom Kingdom as Princess Peach is celebrating her birthday. Many of her friends, including Mario & Luigi, are bringing many gifts for her, but Captain Toad still hasn't decided on which gift to get!

Recently, there were rumors spread across Toad Town about the shiny Prism Star - a giant rainbow-colored Power Star which is considered one of the rarest known Power Stars in existence. When the news reaches Captain Toad, he decided that the Prism Star might be the best gift to get for Princess Peach's birthday, and so he sets out on an adventure to retrieve it.

It may seem easy for him, until he runs into the dastardly Kuroku the Raccoon Thief. Kuroku becomes an instant rival to Captain Toad, knowing that the former's also going for the Prism Star just like him. He's looking to steal the Prism Star to add it to his collection of rare treasures. But not until Captain Toad manages to get here first. And you can help our great adventurer out!

FEATURES
Captain Toad: Prism Star Quest combines the "no-jumping" gameplay of Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker & the "Captain Toad's Adventures" levels in Super Mario 3D World with that of the 2D side-scrolling gameplay of traditional Mario platformers. Guide Captain Toad across small puzzles and even side-scrolling ventures as you adventure to collect the Prism Star before Kuroku the Raccoon Thief does.

- Play as Captain Toad! He cannot jump or spinjump, but regardless, you can still help him get past the many obstacles.
- About 20-30 short levels are planned, equivalent to the length of an average Episode in Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker. Look out for some optional challenges as well!
- Featuring the works of FutureNyanCat, MegaDood, Prism Emerald, and more!
- Three Super Gems to collect in each level! Can you collect them all?
- Featuring the many gimmicks of LunaLUA from the SMBX community, all redefined in the context of Captain Toad's adventure!
- A modern take on the SMW art style
- No Bowser/Bowser Jr./Koopalings. That'll be lame-o!
- A few cameo appearances...
- And more!

So far the project looks promising, even tho it's a minisode. Really love the SMW-esque stuff that you did there c:
Good luck finishing it!

New screenshot! Venture through a deserted pyramid filled with Reznors and Grrrols in the new "Rumble Crumble Ruins"!

Also this section of the level is still a work in progress, but here's an extra screenshot if you're really curious! Reznors have a new subspecies, the Ravagor, which acts similarly to a Tantrunt but without the POW effect when slamming into walls.

New screenshot! Captain Toad makes his way to Spotcap City (from Captain Toad Goes to Outer Space) while chasing Kuroku down. But when red coins and locked doors are abound, this is going to be taking quite a good while. Check out the new level, "Spotcap City Coin Search"!

New screenshots... There's going to be a crossover!

As Captain Toad drifts away to sleep after setting up camp near a strange statue of a fallen angel, he soon finds himself in a heavenly dream realm. Something just doesn't seem right about him being suddenly warped to a strange dream world that resembles the afterlife... but regardless, Captain Toad presses on, hoping to find the answer.

Heads up everyone! As I finally finish most of the levels I sent screenshots of here in this thread, I just wanted to announce that I'm taking a break from making these levels. First of all, I got burnt out after making the latest level, and also I worry a lot about my schoolwork sometimes. Thankfully, some of my teammates are working on levels too for this minisode, so I hope you're looking forward to what's to come from them!

A quick reminder that this is the list of people working on levels for the minisode:
- FutureNyanCat (Me!)
- MegaDood
- Prism Emerald
- Registered Sand Eater
- SanS1m0n

New level! Alongside The Fuzzyard by MegaDood (screenshot #1 on the first post) is a new extra/secret level set under the sea, known as "Hundred Leagues Below", focusing on Cheep Cheeps and Urchins. Maybe Rammerheads can make a return?

I was seeing those screenshots and I have concluded that a level without buried items could be interesting and fun. Plus, SMBX2 has a lot of basegame NPCs and blocks that can be used. Anyways, the levels look creative and colorful. Keep going!

Stay tuned everyone! Some more updates to Prism Star Quest are coming soon! I'm currently working on Hundred Leagues Below and should be finished by today or so.

New level!
While on the trail for the Prism Star, Captain Toad discovers that the Yoshi Fields have been cluttered with a spill of Berry Blocks! A Yoshi who has been delivering these berries to his other Yoshi brethren has accidentally spilled them everywhere, leaving more blockades for Captain Toad to deal with. Enter "Yoshi's Picnic Panic", a level dedicated to some of my old friends like Yoshibrothers, where you must guide the Baby Yoshis to the Berry Blocks to feed them and clear a path!

Screenshot retaking/NEW HUD?
I'll be revising some of the screenshots on the thread, as you might've noticed a new HUD redesign that's in the screenshots for Yoshi's Picnic Panic. This was designed and conceptualized by me, while Team Starshroom member "Marioman2007" has coded pretty much everything, including support for a reserve box!

In the new HUD, it is based on the design used for Super Mario 3D World and Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker's HUD, though with my own flair on it. It condenses all important information (health, coins, and Super Gems) into one corner of the screen, while the item box is moved to the bottom left for more screen space.

This new HUD design is also going to be used for CTGTOS as an updated version of the HUD. Stay tuned!

Added in 3 hours 24 minutes 15 seconds:
I've updated the screenshots list on the thread to reflect the episode's more updated appearance since September 2022! Also in this new post, I'm introducing a new level that's made in cooperation with Prism Emerald (gbradley231) - Hydrostation Hijinks! Captain Toad explores a hydrostation that's filled to the brim with electric thingamajigs, Tesla Coils, and more!
