Here’s a sneak peek of the long awaited update for A Koopa’s Revenge 2. This will be the last major update to AKR2. I mean it this time.
The update will include more balanced powerups, upgraded artwork, improved physics, new skins for the first five bosses, an import/export function for save files, and more. For a complete changelog, see this post on NG.
Speaking of Newgrounds, that’s where I’ll be conducting the beta testing. Anyone with a Newgrounds account can play the beta version, though there will be an annoying BETA plastered across the screen. Sorry about that. I just don’t want anybody scooping me on the videos. Anyway, I’m requiring an NG account to play because I figure letting literally anyone play it would be the same as releasing it outright. Just a little barrier to entry.
Whilst perusing the tubes I found this video of someone beating A Koopa’s Revenge 2 without collecting much of anything. It’s also a segmented speedrun, though I don’t think that was the intention.
In related news, I finally got into building the save backup system for AKR2’s 1.2 update. It’s been a big pain, but it should be worth it. In the next update you will be able to save your game as a series of 229 numbers. This will allow transferring of saves between different websites, as well as backing up saves. I should be able to release a beta for version 1.2 as soon as I finish a few more things for it. This will be a pretty big update, I’m considering renaming it the 2.0 update.
The Lambtaco Games Youtube channel has reached it’s first significant milestone: 10 000 subscribers. While it doesn’t exactly put us in the major leagues, it’s a big step up from a few years ago when we had only a few hundred viewers. I made a video to celebrate, and I feel it shares my sentiments better than this write up can. It also shows off the remaining secrets I hadn’t revealed yet.
So, thanks for subscribing if you did. Maybe check out our other channel, Lambtaco Comedy. It’s pretty different, and more R-rated, but it’s approaching 5000 subscribers so we must be doing something right. Lastly, there should be more uploads forthcoming, on both channels. No promises, but I’ve got some ideas.
A while ago someone mentioned to me that they don’t get into the comedy side of what we do here at Lambtaco because English isn’t their first language and they consequently find the videos difficult to follow. Since then I’ve been meaning to subtitle all of our comedy videos. In English because it’s often easier to read a foreign language than to hear it. Finally I’ve gotten it started.
So far I’ve done up all of our HD era videos, those branded as Lambtaco when they initially released, with the exception of Sombrero and Maloney because it’s 8 minutes of talking. I plan to get to the rest in due time, as well as sub the one Gaming video that has speech.
P.S. Sorry for lack of posts. Haven’t had anything substantial to report lately.
The Lambtaco Games Youtube channel has reached the milestone of 7500 subscribers! To celebrate I made a video revealing the location of the infinite up in A Koopa’s Revenge 2. I meant to have this one up for 5000 subs, but I was sort of offline at the time.
