It actually isn't top bad as there is telegraphing to indicate the boss's attacks and when it rotates the direction is based on the player's position as to avoid crushing the player.

Also thanks for the reminder. Completely forgot to add them

i have a question, this level
Image
Is the same as this level without the smoke
Image
is it like you have the copy level with the same boss fight just with another feature like the smoke, or was it a mistake and there both the same level?

The latter is just an updated version. I'm going to hopefully release the next demo by Monday and clean up some stuff, including the screenshots

Nice to hear. I'm planning on finishing a significant amount over the Christmas holidays. I'm also trying to decide whether or not to stall for a while and await Beta 4 since I want to use some features that'll be incompatible with Beta 3, although I may just choose to find workarounds with Beta 3 features for now. Also struggled with ideas for a bit but hope to get this moving soon after I find some more inspiration

Wow, this is looking amazing so far.

Really hope you finish this, really looking forward to playing through it.

Booted up the demo in LunaLua and I got this error:

And Boom Boom isn't doing any of the special moves he is supposed to. A bit disappointed...

You wouldn't believe how fast I became a Metroid fan. I guess you could say I Shineparked into the series.

A bunch of virtually pointless but cool quotes from popular culture:

Here's something new...

Image

Also my Christmas holidays are coming up so expect a relatively large new demo coming by early January.

I've remastered a bunch of levels, removed some, etc.

That looks so brilliant. Very interesting...

EDIT: Are those meteorites? If so, that would be a very cool bossfight.

Update to what I posted yesterday after some graphical tweaks and others. This level is now done:

Image

Just as a progress report: I'm pretty much happy now with the first 8/16 levels of the main game. Before I release the next demo I just have a few things to tweak in terms of the HUD and data storage stuff, and also want to rework a few smaller things. I've made some significant graphical and design changes to the first few levels (some scrapped and redone completely, or reworked as a later level) and am almost done all of the hubs now too. Next demo should include 10+ levels and a sneak peek at some of the upcoming features that will be introduced after the first full release. This should be coming in the next few days and will probably be the last demo before I release the full version!

Thanks for all of the support this project has received. Not just here, but all of the feedback on Discord as well is greatly appreciated

I hope it plays that way too! A lot of tweaking of this level was gameplay-specific elements and it focuses a lot on flow, developing the gimmick, and providing progressive, varied, and reasonable challenges. It's one of my favourites so far; it's a unique break from the average one-screen boss room
