15-10-21: v. 1.03 of Radaxian Rumble is ready for release and you can get it here: http://www.romhacking.net/hacks/2599/
Some new content includes longer and more varied levels, more sprite edits, and more use of triggers to create new puzzles. I'm sure you'll enjoy it if you liked the previous demo at all. :)

15-10-14: The hack now works on an Everdrive!

This is a hack of Alex Kidd in Miracle World made using KiddEd, aiming to provide new challenges for fans of the original, give the game a bit of an audiovisual update, as well as to make parts of the original game flow a bit better. After about four weeks of working on it I think I've come up with something worth showing to more people.



Current features:
- Less slippery movement and somewhat better air control.
- Faster crawling.
- New level designs. No level is quite the same as before, and one or two are completely new.
- New palettes in every level.
- New mechanics and puzzles based on old assets.
- New music and sprite designs.
- Less Janken/Rock, Paper, Scissors.
- Swapped buttons. A/1 is now punch/select.

More info, screenshots and a download link (.ips) can be found here:

Some planned features:
-Better hit detection when punching blocks in mid-air or tentacles underwater
-One or two additional levels
-Further changes to castles and jar shaped levels
-More music variation
-New bosses, enemies, mechanics

Feedback and requests are welcome!

PS. There's currently no alteration to the story, and the title itself is preliminary. So if you like the hack and have a knack for concise and funny writing, let me know and maybe we can work something out.

Thanks for the feedback. :)

Another thing I'd like to get people's thoughts on is this custom guard sprite I'm making, based on a guard from Alex Kidd in Hi-Tech World (bottom left sprite). I'm partial to the last one, bottom right.

Update:
Here's a few preview shots for a second episode to the hack that I'm currently making, which is almost finished. Janken won't be the main antagonist this time. :O

So apparently someone spanish (?) has taken my Radaxian Rumble hack, changed some things (for the worse) and tried to pass it off as their own. Very strange.
