Happy Holidays + A Concept.

Happy Holidays and Merry Christmas to anyone reading this!

Well I didn't get the chance to get much work done (I had to transfer tiles from one rom to another and then re-map everything...)

Well, here's interesting concept for my Rom Hack - Pokemon Mario.
I've got the story set up for the beginning part of the game, which involves you, the player, storming into Bowser's airships in hopes of re-claiming the Princess. I probably shouldn't spoil much, but in the game you
will be able to access warp pipes which will lead you to another map/room/dimension/whatever. For the beginning you will start out on an Airship where you will have to solve a "puzzle" (which is easy...). In order to advance from Point A to Point B

So in order to solve one of these "puzzles" on the airships, you will need
to go down a Warp Pipe. The scenery then changes from 2-D to 3-D . As
portrayed in this concept pic.  As you can see, one of the long wooden
blocks (As seen on the 1st picture) was changed to look 3D. This is a rough representation, but it works. This results in a change from 2D gameplay to 3D.

Of course, I'm still looking for help on graphics. (Soon enough, ripped tiles from other games will not be enough xD) And I definitely need help on this 2D to 3D tile conversion
since I'm graphically challenged...




  1. Yo red do you want me to help get the word out about your hack for you because I don't see too many people that know about your hack and it seems like nobody knows about your blog at all so if you want me to help alittle just answer.

  2. Yea sure.
    I think the reason why no one knows about this is because I haven't done much to promote it like Threads on forums and such. I'm not really planning on making a thread until I have a stable release.
