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 126.96.36.199.
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.

Tanooki Island Demo
*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.
