Version 0.85 is here, finally!
Sorry it took so long. There was holiday stuff and I got pretty sick for a while. Next update should come sooner, though it will likely be smaller. You guys might want to follow me so you can be alerted to my news posts. I'll be doing one for every major update from now on.
So, what's changed? First gameplaywise. Lag as been reduced further, though not as much as last time. Walljumping is now easier to perform, as it works more like NSMB. Donut blocks respawn after a few seconds. The electric eels can be interacted with more deeply now, you can kill them with hammers and stuff. And the swimming physics for the blue shell/blue shyguy/blooper powerup are a bit different. Cheats can be turned on and off in stages, not just on the map. You can burn the wavy grass now too.
Visually, I added a ton of new backgrounds, and updated some existing ones. This was the reason this update took so long; I didn't want it released until every stage had it's own background. Still not completely satisfied, so there will likely be more changes to the backgrounds. I altered two of Goomba's forms. His small form now resembles the goombas from SMW, and his water form is a blooper. I also improved many of Goomba's animations, aswell as some for Shyguy. I altered Koopa's posture to make him more shaped like his hitbox (This one isn't exactly complete yet) And there are changes to some enemies based on the weather and time of day.
Glitches. Fixed the glitch caused by 0.83 that doesn't reset your Koopaling collection when starting a new file. I'm also 99% sure the random stopped bouncing fireball is gone.
Be sure to check out my last post for an overview of the game's music (which I'm totally going to finish soon, I swear) where you can suggest new songs, or tell me why you want me to keep the old ones. And would you guys mind uploading avatars for NG? It would be much easier to tell you all apart.

Anybody who wants to be a tester!
Send me a PM or comment telling me why you'd like to test the game. I ask for this info to weed out people who might be too lazy to give feedback. Speaking of which, if I add you as a tester and you don't give me any feedback, you will be removed.
