Just thought I'd give a quick update, sorry if I'm bumping a necro post!
Games I'm referencing are:
Super Mario Bros: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2ZuhSB64quY
Super Mario Bros: Lost Levels: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hciDOst9SGw
I'm taking the level design and flipping it 90 degrees into vertical platforming. However, I also want original level design. Some people have asked me to help after others volunteered, and I said I didn't need any more help, but right now, I think more designers would be beneficial for me.
I also welcome and accept critique and criticism of, and any ideas for, the game: https://www.dropbox.com/s/a07r4gdhlvpqg ... .capx?dl=0
An idea offered was to make it so the camera didn't let you see the enemies ahead, but moved with the rising fire. I initially didn't like this idea, but I think it could work for a bonus area or post-game challenge.
Ideas of my own include: a points system, lives, extra life item, secret areas, game over screen, different endings, and letting people mod the game. One way I wish to let people mod the game is a carousal selection of sprites: i.e., hit the 6 Key to change the enemies' sprites, hit it again to change the enemies' sprites again, etc. Ideas for sprites include different level themes: food, music, casino, etc.
Lastly, let me know your name so I can add you to the credits! If you don't want to be added, though, that's fine.
