The Tanooki Who Couldn't Fly

Been a while since I've posted on this forum, let alone an SMBX project. This project aims to be a simple, traditional Mario platformer with only a few slight twists to the formula, and nothing too fancy or beyond the limitations of SMBX 1.3.0.1.

Story:
One fateful day on lonely little Tanooki Island, a little Tanooki* wakes up to find that its tail had been stolen! Who could be responsible? Tanooki will have to brave the elements and venture off the island to find out, making friends and allies along the way.

Worlds, Progress, and Screenshots:
World 1: Tanooki Island (Progress: 5/5 levels completed, Map area completed)
Tanooki Island Screenshots: show

World 2: Mint Plateau (Progress: 1/9 levels completed, Map area mostly completed)

World 3: Stalagmite Mines (Progress: 0/? levels completed, Map area not started)
World 4: Piranha Beach (Progress: 0/8 levels completed, Map area mostly completed)
Worlds 5-8: [redacted due to spoilers] (Progress: 0/? levels completed, Map areas not started)
Bonus World: Cloud Nine (Progress: 0/10 levels completed, Map area not started)
Warp Zone Progress: 1/9 warps completed, Map area mostly completed
Playable Tanooki Progress: Not started/No sprite artist yet

*Currently, I don't have a player graphic for Tanooki, so for right now, pretend that Mario is Tanooki. My plan is for Tanooki to resemble what it'd look like if SMB3 Tanooki Suit Mario was an actual Tanooki instead (plus missing its tail). I will attempt to make the necessary graphics myself if no one offers first.

Feedback on my level design, graphics choices, and my formatting of this thread are always appreciated. Stay tuned for more.

"The Tanooki who couldn't fly"?
Oh, god, this name is so hilarious. I could probably perform an explosive laugh with it.

Does it still go into statue tho?

Since the episode seems to be made for 1.3, it wouldn't be possible to remove certain functionalities of powerups (LunaLua would be required).

Ok. I'll ask the author later. Because it just seems to be made for 1.3.

It would be nice if you show how the tanooki player looks like

I can't show how they look like because I literally don't have the sprites yet.

Nobody claimed the tanooki powerup state was going to be used. The original post explains the idea of the player resembling a tail-less version of the mythical creature by default.

At the episode "Mario Classic" there are custom npcs goombas ,koopas and hammer bros with raccoon tales and ears, they are in the forest world of that episode, they can fit to your Tanooki island.
