I have a Christmas present for you! I added some awesome new features to Super Mario Bros. Crossover. The classic power-up system from version 1.0 makes a triumphant return, and it now has customizable weapons. In addition to that, I also made it possible to disable skins and characters. Now you can remove characters and skins that you hate from the game! There are other changes too. Feel free to take a look at the version history to see them all.
So… why did I do this when I announced that the game was done? I figured since it’s Christmas break, it was okay for me to spend my time working on this game instead of Super Action Squad. I also didn’t want to have any regrets about this game, so I figured it was worth it to get it into a state that I was happy with before ending its development.
Also, I thought a bit more about if this is really the “final” version. I decided that the game will no longer be actively developed, but I may still work on it from time to time as a hobby. I’m so much faster at programming now that in some cases, I can add significant new features with just a few days of work.
With that said, I personally view the game as done, so everyone else should look at it that way as well. If I add stuff, consider it a bonus. And since I view the game as done, I’m going to make a video to go over everything in the game because there are a lot of nuances that the average person probably doesn’t know. There’s also a lot of stuff that was added in this update that changes how some of the characters are controlled. Normally this sort of thing would be explained in-game with tutorials, but I don’t have time to do that. Most of the tutorials in the game are outdated anyway.
Thanks, and happy holidays from Exploding Rabbit!
Early on, you should decide on a game unit that is simple and intuitive.
I implemented sprite flipping in the level editor and game engine. The image above shows flipping on hill. Those are both the same sprite. I also built the first level of Super Mario Bros. There is a toad there because the story takes place after Mario beats Bowser, so he has freed the toads. Speaking of that… does […]
Switched to using one collider per tile to make it quicker to build levels. The sides that are in red are ignored so they still behave properly. For comparison, this is how colliders looked before. They are bigger, so they’re more efficient, but it takes longer to make them. I’ll probably eventually have something […]
