Mission accomplished, then, frantik! It's very playable but it definitely won't seem too easy to serious veteran players either.
I am at 8-1 but I am taking a break. I got really lucky with the level before it. I had been dying there dozens of times, maybe over a hundred. Then suddenly I got past the sticking point and got really good luck for the remaining 25% or so of the level. Whew. I kind of dread having to do that again when I try to get all the Mario coins.
And Spooniest, I did notice that about SM2j. It's my favorite version of that game. It just seems to play better than the SNES version.
edit: I just had to give up on being able to get past 8-1, so I started a new game so that I could collect the Mario coins. Once again, these levels are pretty nice.
Just a quick question. Did you design this with people using save states in mind? Or am I just that bad at playing SMB?
