WHAT IS THIS, AND WHY SHOULD I EVEN PRETEND TO BE INTERESTED?
Mario & Luigi's Generic Adventure is a work-in-progress episode for SMBX 2.0 Beta 4 by yours truly! It aims to replicate the charm of classic Mario level design while adding in a few modern-age touches to create an immersive, smooth, and most importantly, fun experience. About three years in the making, it's been pretty slow going, but I'm determined to get it done one day. All I can hope for is that you have as much fun playing it as I am making it, which is a pretty cliche thing to say, but that's honestly how I feel! If that's not enough to convince you, I've compiled a list of selling points on what I think are the best features of the episode:
CHECK OUT THIS LIST, IT'S GOT BULLET POINTS AND EVERYTHING
- PLENTY OF CONTENT!
Slated to contain over 50 levels across seven worlds, there's no shortage of things to do! From flooded caverns to haunted pyramids to airships in ashen skies, the varied locales are sure to keep your interest.
Nearly all of the graphics have been overhauled to look better and be SMB3-styled, either by myself or other folk (check the credits file in the download), and all the enemies have consistent behavior. Any specific variety of enemy will always just do one thing, so no unpleasant surprises when those green Paratroopas suddenly start homing in on you!
- MODERN POWERUP SYSTEM!
If you get hit with a powerup, you'll revert to just Big Mario instead of going all the way down to Small Mario! A refreshing, relaxing experience for a less jaded mind.
- HUB WORLD!
Physically being able to run and jump around the hub is never a bad thing, and there's plenty of NPCs to talk to with helpful advice and mildly amusing quips. Separate boss levels in the vein of the Kirby games helps bring down the frustation of dying in the middle of the fight and having to redo half of the level, and allows you to pop in for a rematch any time you like!
- LEVELS ARE UNLOCKED BY STARS!
Getting frustrated with that one level? Just grab an extra star from a previous level and skip it! You will have to come back if you want to unlock all the levels, though...
No secret exits or frustratingly obtuse hidden collectibles. Just you, three star coins, one green star, and the goal.
- IT'S IN BETA 4!
Get a load of all that new stuff!
NO PICS, NO CLICKS
So far, I've only got World 1 finished, so here's some snaps from each level therein:
ALRIGHT COOL, WHERE CAN I GET IT?

Hope you enjoy! Make sure to reply with any comments, questions, or concerns you might have; criticism is very welcome! I'll post updates on my progress as I finish more levels, so keep your eyes peeled!
