I've made some progress in Koopa 2. Fixed a bunch of coding stuff and made 2 new levels. I'm able to make levels alot faster than I thought. About 1 per day, plus a bit more time when I need to make a new enemy or object. The levels seem a little shorter than AKR1, but a bunch of people complained they were too long anyway.
I'm calling on my fans for a couple of things. First, I need some better music to replace the song in the demo. I liked it at first, but that song gets irritating fast. The song also needs to fit, so it can't be power metal or something like that, it needs to be music you wouldn't be surprised to hear in a Mario game.
Second, I need some enemy ideas for an undeground level. They should be normally good guys like the rest of the AKR enemies. Something to act like a Buzzy Beetle would be great.
I'm also looking for day and night songs for each level theme. Some levels will be day and some night. This is so you won't hear the same desert song over and over in the desert world for example. I have a lot of songs already, but I'd like to replace them with something better. Here are the level themes:
Plains, a standard 2D Mario level (like in the demo)
Forest, kinda dark and mysterious
Sky, like up in the clouds, fast paced music
Shrooms, on top of giant mushrooms (like SMB or NSMB)
Caves, there are always caves
Ice, bright and white
Under Water, obligatory level theme
Desert, dry and hot
Volcano, lots of lava and fire
Ghost Houses, I want them to be really spooky
Castles, each of the 7 or 8 castles will have it's own musical theme
Map, I still need some good map music.
Bonus Stage, fast and peppy, full of fun
It seems like I'm asking a lot, but it's all voluntary,and you're on newgrounds so it's unlikely you have something important to do. Remember to use the Audio Portal.
