Mario's Retro Redo (back from vacation)

Postby Zaxarone » Sat Jul 02, 2016 5:32 pm

Hello, this is my first time announcing a project on SMBX forums, however it is not my first time designing a game.

This project will be made in PGE, and uses the SMB1 Expanded tileset, and hopefuly... AxelVoss' mario skins.

This episode will be a newage-retro style of game. not too much of a story. but tons of fun levels and refrences.
Credits:
Sednaiur-for the smb1 expanded tiles that I use 98% of the time :P
Valtteri- the other 2% of the gfx i use
youtube-various songs
Axelvoss-mario gfx
Here are a few screens:

World 8:0%

UPDATE 7/4/2016
Finished the world map.
Added one star to each level, provided you collect the Dragon Coins

Update 7/5/ 2016
World 2 is done...starting on world 3 :)
Update 7/8/ 2016
Considering using AxelVoss' Mario skin
No longer 2 player
Mo' screenshots
Levels now have different names appeneded to the world map

Update 7/19/2016
Excuse the absence, I've been visiting a lot of family for the past week and
had no time to work on this. I'm back in business now though so expect to see more soon!

Update 7/26/2016
So it turns out i had another week to visit family. keep in mind i don't get to see my brother
very often so the past week was spent with him. But now, as of me typing this, I am hard at
work finishing world 3. a few other changes include:

removed Tanooki suit
Recolored AxelVoss's ice Mario for the hammer suit and changed the power-up skin
Changed the name of every level to flow more. I.E.: 1-1 the plains is now 1-1 Mushroom March

Update 7/27/2016
World 3 is done! YAY!!
started using some gfx from valtteri's graphics pack.

You have a cut-off in the bottom-left corner in your screen. Anyways, good luck in your project!

A cut-off for example is the omission of corners. The cut-off in the second screenshot is in between the red pipe and the underground tiles.

Update: World one is now 100%!! the worlds will be short, only 3 levels, one castle, one item hut and a secret level in each, so about 5 full courses per world. I'm thinking about 7 worlds will be the total. that's all for now

55 levels is a lot for your first episode. I'd recommend cutting it down so you don't rush levels too much, get bored and not finish it, and/or notice that the level design from the earlier levels is much worse than that of the more recent levels due to the design experience you've gained, that you feel the need to scrap some of the earlier levels and redo them in the end. Making a minisode or just working on some standalone levels that you submit to the Levels forum first to get some feedback might be a good idea instead of diving into a big project without any help and little experience

I see you are using Sednaiur's gfx pack. Nicely done.
Hello, I make a lot of typos
specific people know my whereabouts though

my wifi is as useful as a brick

im more active on discord

:idea: I'm not (completely) dead; I rarely talk because I usually have nothin to say; I'll talk when I actually have a comment I want to make, or if someone asks me somethin...

nostalgia is a beautiful thing, isn't it?

anything before 2020 is most likely me being a weirdo or an idiot.

It's a really cool project! Also, where did you get the piranhaplant in the last screenshot?

I believe in Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savior. If you do, put this in your signature.
