Super Mario And The Ancient Stars (DEMO V3 RELEASED!)

-The Plot-

Milions years ago there was a powerful force that created 5 Stars with enormous power. Time has passed, the force died and The Stars sealed themselves in a Sanctuary in Mushroom Kingdom. But nowadays someone found them. He has no good intentions for The Stars, so they flew away in five different directions. The masked figure captured Peach and now wants Mario to collect all 5 Stars for him. Will Mario save Peach? Or will he fail this time?

-Progress-

Image

W1: The Great Jungle (7/7 Levels) COMPLETED
W2: The Koopahari Desert (7/7 Levels) COMPLETED
W3: The Giant Heights (7/7) COMPLETED
W4: Molten Lava Land (7/7) COMPLETED
W5: Mega Metropolis (7/7) COMPLETED
W6: The Sanctuary of The Stars (4/?)

Each world will contain at least 4 levels, one boss (There is a separate level for it) and some mini-bosses.

-Demos-

This looks like a relatively small project. That's a good thing, though! It looks really promising and focused on the story, which I find great! The worlds seem quite creative (excited for W6), and the world map and level screens look great! Keep it up!

Thanks for replying so fast :D. I'm glad you're enjoying this. And yes, I am focusing on story very much but that doesn't mean my level design will be bad :mrgreen:. I'm trying to make it as original as I can.

Focusing on the story doesn't mean you don't focus on level design.
Good story and good level design are supreme together. You seem like you're doing both, it looks really good.
Just try to keep the purple mask at its original size, it looks weird imo

I know that :/ But the original size is covering his whole head, and I will use this later to the plot.

Don't worry! It may just look hard. In fact, this is the easiest before-boss level in the episode, so it can't be very challenging.

you mean... it can't bee very challenging.

And this is looking pretty good, my only complaint based on the screen shots alone is that it looks a little haphazard in terms of enemy placement. That could feel different when actually playing it though, so I can't say for sure.

Must you?

Anyway this project looks a lot better that your boss rushes and I hope you can finish it.

I'm not saying it looks hard, I'm saying it looks "thrown together" if that makes any sense. It doesn't look like enemies were placed to challenge the player, it looks like they were placed without any purpose or direction.

Could be a challenge for the player while he's climbing the fence

Oh, my bad there. I didn't understand it properly :/ Also, I tried to place it like it took place in hive, so the waps are flying kinda all over the place.
