Here's an idea I just came up with:
Intermission levels between the Hubs. They can use the playable Boom Boom, and it could be Boom Boom going back to Bowser / whoever else, and Bowser etc. will give Boom Boom new powers that will be used by him in the next world / hub.
Or if that doesn't work, make it a cutscene of the NPC Boom Boom doing that stuff.
It could start from the arena of the last level of each hub, he makes his way to a secret base, gets his new powers, and the scene blacks out.

I have always wanted to see something like this, so I hope you can implement it (or something similar)! Can't wait to play the full game.

I don't want to do cutscenes after each hub since they are only four levels long

Yeah, good point. Still, would be nice to get a bit of info from the enemies' point of view.
And may I just say, this project is really cool, and I'm sure it will turn out to be really fun to play! Where did you get the ideas / inspiration from?

I'm not really interested in creating an extended story throughout which is why I'm not too interested in any "here's all these POVs" besides a few cutscenes for pregame and postgame. The inspiration: There's just so many poor-quality boss rushes that make use of solely reskins of vanilla bosses with basically no creativity and just repetitive AI. My goal was to take a single boss NPCs and make a series of boss fights that are each creative, unique, gimmicky, and fun to play with only Boom Boom

Re: Boom Boom Evolution (Demo 0.2--12/21/2017)

Postby PixelPest » Sun Dec 31, 2017 5:16 pm

It's finally here!

Demo 0.2 is now available! It includes the first eight polished levels, two hubs, and a world map. The changelog is below.

Changelog
  • Added level completion indicators in hubs (below each level entrance)
  • Added level difficulty indicators (stars) in hubs (above each level entrance)
  • Added different graphics for collected orbs
  • Custom HUD!
  • Menu now has sounds and some menu bugs are fixed
  • Edited some dialogue
  • Added the Bonsai Market
  • Fixed saving issues (some still present, but for the most part it is okay)
  • Menu is now triggered by the escape (select) key
  • Tweaked special boss background
  • Boss #2 swapped with boss #4; also has more phases (reworked almost completely)
  • Boss #3 was scrapped and replaced
  • Fixed bug in boss #5 with moving layers
  • Added boss #6
  • Fixed minor bug in boss #7
  • Added phases to boss #8
  • Fixed graphical issues with boss #8
I've also added a bunch more screenshots. These are the only ones in the OP now since they are now the most relevant and give a good peek at the episode's contents.

By the way, has progress been made recently? Will we see the full release in a matter of a few weeks, or is this still a long way off?

The next demo is just around the corner!

I've been working on significantly remastering a lot of the battles to make them a lot better in terms of gameplay and design in general. Also working on a few more which will be included in the next demo.

Here's some .gifs of the remastering atm which I've also shared on Discord:

Also I've noticed that the images in the OP have expired? Will fix them ASAP.

Now that my exams are done I can make a lot more progress on this and will hopefully have some more screenshots of new battles in a few days and then hopefully the next demo in a week, or two at most
