Aftermath

The winning entry to Minigame Competition #53

Mario and Toad are the lone survivors of an air strike on the Mushroom Kingdom. Toad formulates a plan to escape from the deep crater left behind. But will it work?

Basically read the Readme.

Also I apologise for the tiny screen, I just like making small games.
Completion: Full Game Genre: Adventure

From the looks of it, is it 2 players? If it is, I'm sold Yrr. :D

I can't see materials. They must be hidden somewhere.

Good game, but the controls start to get extremely unresponsive at some point.

nice, short game. Pretty small, but oh well. (I played it on fullscreen.) Sad though!

Also ultramario I have not encountered that glitch before, it could just be lag, though.

The movement style you gave the player doesn't fit the level design. The acceleration is way to small to jump to the extremely small platforms. It's a very difficult game.

Can you release the sprites or an engine? That would be cool!

I uploaded an updated version that fixes the screen size, blurriness and save points, but it's queueing.

I can't finish the game. At some point after it starts snowing, the outdoor area gives me so much slowdown that I can barely move and it takes half a minute for any key press to register.

The exact same problem happened to me as Lazor-D. At that point, the game became unplayable and I had to quit, even though it's a very fun game. Part of the problem may be that the save file becomes absolutely enormous around that time - approximately 2 MB.

I suspect that the slowdown as well as the save file size would be due to the game keeping track of every single snow flake, and not erasing them from memory. Or something like that...

This game is awesome. But, I don't usually see a game with a sad ending, so I was kinda shocked.

So I submitted an update for this a long time ago, but it seems to have been deleted.

Basically I fixed the blurriness and tiny screen size, as well as the lag.

Resending the update in a minute.

For a mini game it packs an entertaining punch. I was surprised there were no enemies, but somehow, it worked.

So the update system is broken apparently, but you can get the fixed version on gamejolt (please go there, they give me money if you do).

Wow! This was a really fun game! :D It's a bit tough, but it kind of reminds me more of megaman than of Metroidvania. When you die, you have to do what you did all over again, but you made it so that it's not a chore and so that it's atually FUN! Great game, recommend to anybody who likes great fangames. :3

I downloaded it from there but the game still lags after getting the Hi-Jump. Does it have something to do with the music, because I've noticed the music lags as well.

I don't know, but I just can't play this game if its gonna lag like that. A game that lags like this is just...unplayable for me. The game was actually kind of easy, only slightly annoying really, before it started lagging like @#$%.

After finally realizing this had been updated, I played this for a second time (this time using the 4/21/10 version). For me, the game still lags quite a bit when the snow starts falling, and once the save file swells to about 1.5 MB, the game still becomes simply unplayable. If you don't hurry through the main room as fast as possible when it's snowing, your game will lag hopelessly. Fortunately, after a few tries I was finally able to beat the game - and I have to say it was a very unique and innovative game.
