Hey! I made a cool game! It's called "I poisoned half the food, so if you eat you might die!" Have a taco.

I am calm, though. I'm always like this. Just the same...

As am I. That doesn't mean I can't put forth the best damn effort that I can. Not that I'm making any specific judgments here, but still. Being new is not an excuse for being sloppy.

While I do hate Kyouji Craw with a venomous intensity... he's still the ONLY one (along with Golden Yoshi) who said something other than:

"Your GFX is bad!"

You know, GFX does not make a hack!

My problem here is that apart from Kyouji's and Golden Yoshi's complaints about the level design, all that people did was rant about the palettes or lack of ExGFX.

Level design first and THEN, you put ExGFX in. If you do the opposite... well, you make your hacks in a weird way! GFX should be a mean of ENHANCING your hack.

Would you play a hack with no ExGFX and good level design? I would.

As such... I'll stop my rant and make my review.


Why can't I give criticisms based on screens? What's the whole point of posting screens then? Usually posting screens serves as a preview to upcoming hacks, or the judging factor whether people want to play or not. I was just commenting based on what I saw in the screens, if that's alright. Now I definitely don't claim that I'm always right with my predictions, but you just played it yourself and said that the Mario palettes weren't good, and that the level design is just a hard version of the original, which is pretty much what I said, so I could assume from the screens what the hack would be like. Maybe I should've played it to find the positive aspects, but I did include my suggestions for improvement instead of just pointing out the weak points.

Nonetheless this hack doesn't stand out to me. The absence of new graphics really isn't the problem, the levels look very similar to the original. The first screen has the same BG, FG, and sprite set as Yoshi's Island 2. So I'm sorry if my comments on screens aren't welcome, but I'm just trying to comment based on what I'm seeing.

BTW, here is a quick little palette edit (plus a little tile editting too) I made to demonstrate how easy it really is to make Shadow Mario look good (or at least decent). Of course, I would also recolor him so he wouldn't be using up the entire palette for only 4 colors, and also touch him up quite a bit before release, but this was a quick edit, as I said.

Actually, I'll just stop posting in this thread since I accidentally turned this thread into a flame war.

I think I worded my opinion incorrectly...

Screens are important in the fact that they are a bit like previews of the hack... but the screens are not everything and sometimes, some levels will look a LOT more interesting when you're actually playing them while some levels are better as screenshot material as actual levels.

As such... screenshots aren't everything... but good screenshots helps.
