    CHAOS_FANTAZY Level 6: Lakitu

    This is just a simple little thing I made up, more for entertainment than for challenging the player. This'll be good for newcomers, but it may be better to be a veteran, because you need to know who has what music. And that's become a lot more difficult, now that this game has so many songs.

    RULES AND RESTRICTIONS
    > Must be playing on Normal and up
    > Music must be turned on
    > "Music Set" must be on Random
    > A uniform Music Console is optional, but highly recommended
    > Game Type must be "All Characters"

    For the first level, the character you choose must be Random. You play as normal until one of two things happen, dying or completing the level. In the event that you die, one must play as the character whose song was playing RIGHT BEFORE death--not the death jingle itself, that'll always be the same. Upon completing the level, play as the character whose Level Complete song played for the next level.

    Example. I begin playing, game gives me Link for Random. I cruise through the level, and Mega Man's level complete song plays. I play as Mega Man for World 1-2, and hear Mario's Underground theme before dying. I must continue that level as Mario, and so on.

    I myself have tried this challenge, but only in combination with the Hammer Bro. Challenge, so I've only reached World 2-2. How far can you guys make it?

    when you get a star, after its song is over, the level theme randomly selects a different character's music. Wat do?

    or for that matter, after leaving a coin heaven, tunnel, etc.

    CHAOS_FANTAZY Level 6: Lakitu

    Just like I said--the LAST song you hear before death, or the level complete theme. If Mega Man's Star music plays, then Ryu's Overworld theme plays afterwards, then you die. You'd have to play as Ryu. Sorry, I tried to write it out simply...
     
  5. World 1-1

    World 1-1 Level 6: Lakitu

    I made it to world 5-3 in a single try. In the last life, I was with 95 coins! But the damn pit gave me a game over.
    Because of Mario I lost many lives (world 3-4 and 5-2).

    That's just what makes the challenge interesting! In one way, it's easier than Random Character Mode, because you know who you're going to be. On the other hand, it could make the player frustrated. "Ugh, I have to be Mario?"

    I tried this out and really enjoyed it! There were a couple of times where I wasn't entirely paying attention to the victory music and had to guess who to be based on what I thought I heard, and a couple of other times I wasn't sure whose victory music it was. :p I do enjoy the format. It's quite fun, and it forces you to play as characters you might not use otherwise.

    Sounds like this might be a good candidate for a future game mode, where it automatically selects the appropriate character for you, perhaps available through a cheat.
     
  9. World 1-1

    World 1-1 Level 6: Lakitu

    When I was going to try I was afraid that I could don't recognize the song. But then I played and saw that I knew them all.

    Challenge completed! I really enjoyed it, and this mode is definitely added to the roster for modes of play.

    I'd like to say that nothing is more epic than Simon Belmont strutting his stuff to the Blaster Master main theme. :p

    Also, the different music that plays as you go in different pipes in 8-4 gives the final level an interesting atmosphere.

    Chaos James Level 2: Koopa

    I got to 6-1 before running out of lives. I blame Sophia and Simon for dying to Lakuti.

    Its fun though, it would be great as an automated mode which selects it based on the last song.

    You can't here Mega Man's level complete theme with Link any more.

    Nemephosis Level 6: Lakitu

    All it's giving me is Mario series game music when I play as Luigi. I think something is fucked up.

    edit: Nope, all it gives me is Mario series music, period. Something's broken. I have music set and character on Random. It isn't very random.

    True. You can only tell which it is when you hear Gimmick! music or SMB2 music.
