Welcome to the third installment in the A Koopa’s Revenge 3 Idea Blog. The series where I describe ideas I have that could potentially be a part of the upcoming A Koopa’s Revenge 3. Last time we discussed how characters are affected differently by the same powerups. This week it’s somewhat related, the Lakitu Shop.
Coins aren’t just for extra lives (and flower faces) anymore. You can spend your collected coins at the friendly roving Lakitu Shop.
Here’s a little game I whipped up to help me learn AS3. It’s not done yet, but it’s far in enough to show it off. Like half done or so. Most of the coding is done but there’s still design work and assets to be created.
I’m doing a live stream to celebrate 10 000 subscribers for Lambtaco Games, and the release of AKR2 v2.0. It starts at noon PST (-7UTC) and ends at ??? Saturday September 23rd. Embed above. Head over to youtube to take part in the chat.
I’m still a pretty sick at the time of this writing, but hopefully I’ll be well enough to get through the stream.
Here are all the standard powerups for the v2.0 build of A Koopa’s Revenge 2. I did something different than the version 1 All Powerups video. All the text is off to the side instead of interrupting the video. Plus you can see Goomba and Shy Guy’s forms in the same video.
I didn’t include the permanent powerups or the starman because they haven’t changed at all.
The update includes: improved player control, better balanced powerups with new abilities, new skins for the bosses, new medals, a bunch of bug fixes, lots of new graphics, and more.
It’s been exactly three years since the game came out. I made a lot of compromises to get the game finished back then, and this update seeks to bring the game closer to my initial vision. I didn’t get everything in that I wanted, but I think the game is mechanically where it needs to be (minus any new bugs) and I’m proud of it. There will be a 2.1 update to fix any bugs that need testing, make some more graphical changes, and add an in-game medals display. That probably won’t be out for a while though. I’m all koopa’d out and I need a break, unless I need to do a hotfix.
I want to thank all the v2.0 beta testers, and even the people who just said one thing and then buggered off. Every bit helps. Special thanks to AmericaCaptitan, TelFy, and supersonic6411 for being such dedicated testers. Sorry if I got short with anybody these last few days, it’s been kinda stressful.
