    Really cool. I'd realize it with my own eyes. they would just roam around. and say stuff. :)




    Portal turrets:

    These guys would just roam around, when you talk to them, they will say something.


    I'm not a very good spriter, so, good spriters! please make these! :D

    When you make a request, make sure you have discussion material.

    Right now, this is a thread about yes/no. We need information on these characters, how would they work, why they would be a good addition.

    Just asking for a character is generally ineffective.

    You would talk to them, and they might give you stuff, or talk about the level.

    The thing about 8-bit games is that they didn't need tutorials or anything of the sort, especially not platformers. You experience the level by playing it, not by reading some fancy-shmancy description about it.
    I can understand maybe a cameo help appearance, like Eddie for example, but stuff like this just doesn't work in the atmosphere of SMB1.

    Well, they would be more of a thing to chat with, :D

    Play some RPG if you want to chat with an npc.

    I really want these in though, SMBX has NPCs. Why not Mario crossover?

    Because SMBC is nothing like SMBX.

    I just likeit when there are NPC characters, it makes it so there are actually friendly characters and not just you.

    Except in games like SMB1, you're supposed to feel like it's just you. You're supposed to know you're the only one saving this kingdom. Nobody's there to help you aside from the incredibly indirect mushroom man.

    Here's a mockup of this "brilliant" feature.

    UPDATE: Stewards can catch enemies, you can spawn them by using a power-up called "spawn ally", same thing for the turrets except they can kill enemies, not just catch them. Block bots will glide through the level ignoring all gaps, they will hover over enemies, and hit blocks for you, it is very rare to get a block bot, and you are more likely to get a steward or turret.

    EDIT: the power-up's name new name is "the 'Ally Attractor' flower" As it attracts allies, there is also a power-down called the 'Enemy Attractor' flower, which spawns Motobugs, Goombas, and Koopas near you.

    [sarcasm]Oh boy! I've always wanted some robots to beat the game for me![/sarcasm]

    Maybe they can spawn rarely? like, 1 out of 4 times?

    Motobugs? Since when where they in the game?

    Motobugs should be added though, I just added that concept
