I finally got the updated version for AKR2 out. Convenient link to game.

I've addressed some complaints and criticisms, plus added a bunch more little things I thought would be nice. For full details, see my previous news post.


Posted by Lambtaco - November 13th, 2014


The much awaited update to AKR2 is done. But due to some changes to the mechanics it's going to need some comprehensive testing before I can give it a wide release. I can't do it alone (at least not very quickly) so I'll need help testing. The preview is here.

Here are some of the changes made:

  • WALLJUMPING: Due to numerous requests and complaints, I've reworked the walljump mechanics to closely resemble those found in the New Super Mario Bros. games. This is one of the major reasons I have to do the big testing period again. I have to be sure the game is still beatable and not broken by the changes.
  • EASY SILVER COIN COLLECTION: The other big one. When you've already beaten a level, you don't have to beat it again to get it's silver coins. Just collect the coin and wait ten seconds for it to verify. I think this is working perfectly, but I need testing.
  • KICKING BABIES: As funny as getting killed by a baby is, it can interfere with the fun. Now when the player contacts a baby, instead of the player taking damage, he kicks the baby. I will likely improve the animation for this.
  • BLACK PITS: There are now dark black wavy thingies over death pits. I added this after watching a player kill himself looking for secrets. If it's got black stuff on it, it'll kill you. Let me know if I missed a spot.
  • EASY PICKUPS: You no longer have to duck to pick up enemies and pluck vegetables. Simply stand still over top of them and press the ATTACK key. Hopefully this is working right; needs testing.
  • ICE TRACTION: With the swimming powerup, you won't slip around on ice. It's a little something I felt the game needed.
  • LAVA SWIMMING: With the white powerup during the day (drybones) you could always survive in lava. But now you can swim in it like water, rather than dropping like a stone to the bottom. Needs testing to be sure it works properly.
  • QUICKSAND ADJUSTMENTS: Quicksand works a bit differently. Trying to jump out of it looks a bit more natural, and you can't perform a spindash when you're in it.
  • SPECIAL EFFECTS: Walljumping and getting in and out of water now produce little visual effects. It's just polish, but I figure while I'm improving the other stuff I may as well pretty it up a bit.
  • BUG FIXES AND TWEAKS: Fixed some small bugs (including the invisible ghosts spawning in 4-2) and chnaged a few areas around just a bit. I also added a few secrets (nmothing major, just coins)

I'd appreciate any input on the new version. And I'm sorry it took so long. I wanted to hae this out a month ago, but I got sick. Anyway, enjoy the changes.

UPDATE: I uploaded another new version to the preview page. Nothing huge. More tweaks, adderd the kicking animations, further adjustments to quicksand. If all goes well with htis version I'll release it publicly.

UPDATE 2: Finished the game to 106% myself, and found a few bugs. Pretty minor ones. Once I get those touched up 1.1 will go public.

Firstly, check out my new comedy sketch. It'll only take a minute.

I'm trying to get my youtube channel going, and I'll be posting videos every other week on Lambta.co Tuesdays. I'll also be uploading to NG when applicable. For instance I've got some cartoons in the pipeline.

Secondly, I've started work on the first real revision to A Koopa's Revenge 2. Now that the initial bug fixes and such are done, I'll be working on some more in depth changes to the game, including walljumping mechanics. Full details on that can be found http://lambta.co/akr2-v1-1-devblag-entry-1-feedback-requested/

I'm looking for more feedback on AK2. So if there's anything you want to say, give a shout. No issue too small.

After years of on and of development, the sequel to the much remembered A Koopa's Revenge has finally arrived. It's weird to have this finally off my back (mostly, there are surely going to be some changes) it's like graduating from University. No more stalling gotta get serious about stuff now. You guys probably don't need to hear that, but I needed to get it out.

It's bigger, faster and prettier than the first. So give her a looksee. And if you're too impatient to wait less than a hour for the NG ulpload, you can play it on my site: http://lambta.co/koopas-revenge-2/

Link up front.

So, yeah, the game's out on my site now. Fully featured. I'll be releasing the NG version with medals at 12:00a EST, so if you want to wait, you can earn medals. Or you can beat the game on my site and beat it again on NG tomorrow. It'spretty big though, like an early SNES game in scale. I'll be doing a front page post later, when it's closer to launch time.

Latest version of AKR2 is up for approved testers. HERE

Mostly I added some animations on the main menu screen, which trigger after a few seconds, that reveal clues to where to find the Koopalings and such. Also tweaked a few litttle things, and changed some redundant features. As usual, let me know if I broke anything, testers.

I was thinking htis would be the last version before release, pending no added bugs, but I may do another as there are some medals I want to add. Stupid little ones for finding Easter eggs and such.

In other news, just today I've decided to release my new site, lambta.co. Check it out, y'alls. It's not 100% done yet, but it's plenty functional and fulll of content.


Posted by Lambtaco - August 27th, 2014


In case the embed somehow fails, A Koopa's Revenge 2 is coming out Sept. 16th on my site and Sept 17 on NG. The NG version will have medals.

I've spent ages on this thing, but it's finally coming out.


Posted by Lambtaco - August 25th, 2014


So, I broke down and added medals to the game. There were some snags, but it wasn't too hard. Took all day though.

Calling on beta testers to try to get the medals. And maybe suggest some to add. But the game has to be beatable without getting a single medal. So no, "Beat the first boss." or things like that. (Maybe a bad example because it's totally possible to never beat the first boss, but on a typical playthrough it would come up.)

RELEASE DATE! Tuesday September 16th on www.lambta.co (Lambta.co Tuesday ;) ) and Wendesday September 17th on Newgrounds.

The teaser trailer should be coming out in the next couple days.

Beta link, for approved testers.

Beta Link

I've finally added the item reserve feature. So you can carry an extra item around like in Super Mario World. Let me know if it has any bugs. And the music loops better now too, from the last update.

In othe news I'm still requesting suggestions for cool moments to use in the trailer. So anything really cool about the game you think would look good in a trailer, let me know.
