General Commentary and Game Overview
Out of all the characters in the Mario series, the Angry Sun is definitely one of them.
Pros + Unique gameplay idea
+ Good music and graphics
Cons - The lack of diagonal movement makes the game feel sluggish
7 / 10
The gameplay idea is quite interesting and kinda fun, but the lack of diagonal movement hampers it a bit. The boss fight is good.
8 / 10
The graphics are pretty good. The default GM effects (I think that's what they are?) look a bit weak, but I suppose they do also add to the charm a little.
8 / 10
The music's also pretty good. Much better than smblvl11.mid, in any case.
Final Words
7 / 10
Worth a playthrough for its unique mechanics.

Thanks - I'm glad you enjoyed it!

This was the first time I ever tried using GM 8.0's built-in particle effects. They're admittedly not the greatest, but at least I learned something from using them.

Much of the music comes from Seiken Densetsu 3 - when I made this game, I'd just finished playing SD3 for the first time. It had quite an awesome soundtrack.
