that would be a pretty tall order considering the end sequence for extra mario bros, but thanks for the vote of confidence
Extra Mario Bros and Mario Adventure are both major influences, and my goal is to make SMU at least contend with those games.
not much progress to report, though sound engine changes are close to being finalized. i was hoping for a christmas/NYE release but that doesnt seem likely unless my schedule changes.
Even once the ROM is complete there are other things that have to be taken care of before the game will be released though... it will be worth the wait though i promise
