Super Mario Bros. & The Midas Machine - FINAL DEMO
preview
By: Team Midas
Formerly known as Mushroom Patrol: Midas Machine, this is the final demo for one of the biggest and most anticipated Mario fangame projects of all time.

100% original graphics and even music composed by the best of MFGG, original ideas and tons of content await you.

Join Mario, Luigi, Wario and Waluigi, each with their unique abilities, in a grand adventure to defeat their teamed up arch nemesis..es(?), King Bowser and Captain Syrup.

The demo you can download here is the official final demo before the release of the game (hopefully later this year) and features the first two worlds.

If you have played the demo from 2 years ago at NCFC 2012, give this one a try. It may be the same two worlds, but the levels have been worked over, many graphics replaced and the gameplay refined and is now a lot more representative of what the final game will look and play like.

Please enjoy and join us on the hype train to the release of Midas Machine!

Don't forget to drop a review or a comment, especially if you have found a bug or any other details you'd like to see improved for the full game!

Very nice. Beautiful game.

I have a set of minor issue problems to report, though I can make a continuing version of that list in private if you want.

Alright, I'll try it. And will review it. And if you've read any of my reviews and honest opinion comes before "sweet-talking." But, I remember this game being quite nice and I'm expecting (and hoping) a 9/10 or 10/10 blossom. I will ding you on any problems. But I doubt there will be.

Edit: just finished chapter 1. Not bad so far. I won't spoil this. Minor issues that bothered me so far: Underwater physics. God awful. 2. Knockback (hit by a koopa on a ledge: Forget health. You're done.) 3. Some problems between background and actual solid ground.

I have played it and it is very fun. My only problem is the speed of the chacters starting up is to slow. other than that it is very good.

I feel ashamed with myself for only starting to play this recently. This is the sort of masterpiece I look up to as a developer. Even if the game doesn't get completed I love it to bits, especially as there's more content in this demo than there is in full games on this site.

One slight niggle though: one hit from an enemy and you lose HP, your powerup and your Takko all at once. I think Takkos should be treated as an additional "barrier" like with Yoshi and the Kuribo Shoe.

I believe the Toad at the gate tells you to find the alt exit in the 3rd level, which isn't hard considering the lock in the level is in plain sight and gives you a blatant hint as to where the key is.


Alternatively you could do something to the bush in front of the gate.

Strange, I'm running it on Windows 7 (and I believe many others are) with no issue like that.

You reel him in oh course. Stand on the lure to lower it, then when he jumps up to bite you, get off the lure and it will pull him onto the stage.

You can actually use your DSe (the pause menu thing) to talk to E. Gadd and get hints for every single room right. This includes boss fights.

Luigi can cheat in the first boss if you use super jump correctly.

Thats... odd. First I've heard of this issue. THe lines are tiles to make the sides a bit shaded so those are meant to be there but yeah, not sure whats up with the quicksand not showing up for you.

When I press pause key, it shows up for a second. Are you using any blend modes?

This is probably related to a compatibility error. Are you running on an old PC?

The music was made by a number of different members such as Can of Nothing, TechMario, and many more.

This is an absolutely amazing fangame. Expect a review soon.

Although at the end of the demo it mentioned NCFC 2014; I know what NCFC is, but when is it happening this year and will it have its own website?

I fell in in the pit with a pipe and walls with spikes, with an obtainable Fire Flower and Cherry nearby, but I can't go in the pipe. This is in Sinking Oasis. This is after the checkpoint, and the pipe is blue, in water. There are two boos, to. Any idea of what I should do?

You can enter the pipe. I just went into the game and tried it as each of the characters to make sure there wasn't a glitch with one of them and it worked fine with all of them so idk why you can't enter it. I'd suggest trying again and just make sure you are properly positioned on the pipe.

Yeah, I tried multiple times with both Wario and Waluigi, but it didn't work.

Odd, it works fine for me, and considering a number of other people have beaten the demo, I'd assume it works for them as well. I'm not sure why it would mess up for you. Did you swim down towards the pipe and just continue to hold down? I think you may have to hit down again while on top of the pipe, but I may be wrong. Thats the only thing I can think of.

I tried both.
-Later-
Well, the Down Key doesn't work, and I can't change it. Guess I'll play the full version, when it comes out. Hopefully this will be fixed.

Maybe if I will be able to beat the completed game, or, if the down key worked for this demo, I'd add a review.

Pretty solid game! Aside from a few parts of the physics that I'm maybe just not used to (I'm thinking that it's because if you don't hold down the jump button for the entire jump all the time, you jump very low,) my only complaints are nitpicks so that's good.

Listing them off anyone, just in case you care
* It'd be nice to automatically move to the next level when you beat a level on the world map. I keep accidentally going back into the level I was just at because button-mashing trying to get to the next level.
* On that note, I had trouble finding how to exit levels I had already beaten w/out killing myself. I dunno if you want that or not but I dunno.
* Related to my problems with jumping, trampolines bounce you too low if you aren't holding the jump button, so low that you don't have enough time to realize that you haven't jumped high enough to try and make it back. This was the source of a lot of dumb accidental deaths from me not paying attention.
* I think the NICE and GOOD signs are a little too big, it's kind of awkward. But not really a big deal.
* I'm not suggesting re-doing the graphics, but sometimes because there are mushrooms over solid ground that look like platforms it's a little confusing about which ground is pass-through and which isn't. It's only in a few places though mostly the graphics are really great!
* In a similar vein, all the music is good, but sometimes it doesn't transition well, but really that doesn't matter a whole lot.

I didn't get to play through much yet, so I can't give a good critique of the level design... Seems a little unguided but that's how first levels of a lot of games are so I dunno.

Anyway though, looks good, looking forward to seeing this completed.

They can be broken by Wario's charge attack, or with Luigi's super jump.

This is up to Chaoxys, but they will definitely not be made public before the game is released.
