AKR3 Idea Blog #3: Lakitu Shop

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.

Mascot Endless Runner Demo

UPDATE: This version is outdated. Always up-to-date on Newgrounds preview permalink. Check the main page for the latest news on Lambtaco Run. Post that came after this one.

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.

Lambtaco Games Livestream Extravaganza

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.

Hope y’all can make it.

A Koopa’s Revenge 2 v2.0 Powerups Showcase Video


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.

Happy Lambtaco Tuesday!

A Koopa’s Revenge 2 version 2.0 has been Released

The long delayed update to A Koopa’s Revenge 2 is finally here:

Click here to Play

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.

Changelog coming soon.

A Koopa’s Revenge Anniversary Edition becomes A Koopa’s Revenge Gold

A Koopa's Revenge Gold

I’ve been toying with the idea for a while now, and I’m making it official. The game project previously known as A Koopa’s Revenge Anniversary Edition will now be called A Koopa’s Revenge Gold.

I missed the ten year anniversary, so I decided a name change was in order. Anniversary edition is a bit of a mouthful anyway. I want it big and sparkly and GOLD.

The logo is temporary. I’ll have a fancier, more refined logo when the game is done.

Celebratory Livestream Announcement

To celebrate Lambtaco Games reaching 10 000 subcribers and the release of A Koopa’s Revenge 2 version 2.0, I will be holding a livestream over on the youtubes.

The stream will begin at noon PST, or 19:00 UTC, on Saturday September 23rd, 2017.

During the stream I will be playing the new version of A Koopa’s Revenge 2, and answering questions both from the chat and pre-asked by fans who couldn’t make it to the stream.

The stream will be released as a regular video some time afterward so anyone can watch it.

That’s all for now, hope to see you on the stream.
