Really great concept! Just too bad I can't finish it since I disabled my caps lock key. :P
One thing I've always felt when playing a Mario game was the exhilaration of free-running wherever you wanted to, but never expected it from a flash game!!
One thing I did notice was that Bowser's castle could be accessible immediately after getting the second key. The secret? Why, the secret for the secret are the secrets of course! (FLUDD makes everything easier :D)
Well made, and I salute you.
So you have found a few of the secret passages; well did you know that you can beat the entire game with only 1 star?
The only problem I have with this Prequel is that it's very short! Great new rpg style, and the bonuses in 'Boss Rush' mode is cool. What's even more great is the slick interface and display of sprites. I can't wait to see more from you because this is simply incredible!
Looks good but..
The game looks awesome. The graphics are really good, but the death graphics are very quick or non-existent.
The worst part of this game is the game play itself. Having to choose from only a small variety of weapons and etc. at the beginning was nice, but the customization just ended there leaving you stuck with the ship you modified forever! And some of the weapons are really useless.
The enemies are annoying to fight, but that's expected in a shooter like this one. What's really hard is recovering from a death, because your weakened weapons don't do much against enemies making it harder to get upgrades. Did I mention the upgrades themselves were scarce? (Not only in number but also in variety.) The shield recovery upgrade is useless compared to the power upgrade which recovers health constantly...
The game is very unforgiving upon death in later levels and seems to torment you from the start.
To put it simply, you have spent too much time on graphics and not enough of the actual game play. It's very disappointing to see all those shiny graphics go to waste on a frustrating game...
Very entertaining tool!
Very cool admission. This might be a late review but its pretty cool. I managed to whip up something good. please take a listen.
