AKR3 Idea Blog #1: Combining Powerups

Welcome to a new series wherein I discuss and detail ideas for the upcoming A Koopa’s Revenge 3. First I’ll be talking about an idea I’m probably not going to use but I think is interesting anyway: combining of powerups.

The idea is pretty simple, at least as an idea. You take powerup A and combine it with powerup B to create powerup AB a la Kirby 64. powerup AB would combine the aspects of both powerups into one super powerup.

I read this article, which someone tweeted, can’t remember who. (By the way, follow me on twitter. I swear, eventually I’ll figure out what I’m supposed to do with it.) It’s a cool article, and if you’re into game development, specifically 2D sidescrollers, you should really check it out. It’s convinced me to redo the camera for AVGN:TitNES (which really needs a shorter initialism)
