AM2R Demo Released! (April´s fools)

After several days of work, a couple dozen jars of coffee, and lots of tweaking an polishing, I present you:
THE AM2R DEMO


DOWNLOAD

Thanks to the great people that provided feedback with Confrontation, the engine is very stable and now I can gather feedback from actual segments of the game.

This demo covers the landing site (with the new tileset), the very first tunnels and a battle with the first Alpha Metroid.

Keep in mind:
- Alpha Metroid AI is limited, since it´s the first fight.
- Music has been compressed and downsampled for filesize reasons.
- No major upgrades are being shown right now (It´s the beginning).
- Some enemies AI isn´t perfect.
- All external files are now embedded in the exe.
- Joypad support is disabled in this build.

Please be discrete with the videos and images you might post on the net. Things are always changing in the game, and some material on this demo might be outdated soon.

I´ll be uploading Confrontation 2.5 to other sites in these days, seems like some links are dead.

As always, suggestions and comments are welcome.
Have fun!

Dark Master said...

que buena broma. yo me emocione al pensar que ya podria tener una muestra del AM2R. Esperando tanto para este tiempo y me encuentro con Another Mario!!!! jajajaja muy bueno... pero no gaste el tiempo en hacer cosas extras, mientras mas concentra su tiempo en el proyecto, mas rapido terminara el juego. Como siempre impresionando con algo nuevo en cada actualizacion. Felicidades!!

that a good joke. I'm excited to think that we could have a sample of AM2R. Waiting so long for this time and I find Another Mario!! jajajaja very good ... but do not spend time doing extra things, the more concentrated their time on the project, finish the game faster. As always impress with something new in every update. Congratulations!

Another Mario 2 Remake ^_^
It's very fun. I like the nostaglic quote ("the metroid is in another planet")

After playing, I realized the meaning of the strange notice in the post ("Please be discrete with the videos and images you might post on the net. Things are always changing in the game, and some material on this demo might be outdated soon.")

Anyway, it's a great April Fool joke C:

How the hell do you beat the god damn alpha metroid? I keep loosing to it for some reason! This game is way too hard! And also, will we be able to play as Mario in the final version? Coz I think that would be neat!!!

DoctorM64 I remade your Super Mod for the older version of Metroid Confrontation that it works for the newest version (2.5).
I just replaced Samus' Suit.

The second Boss is Really Tough, The Game is really unbalanced, please make it a lot easier for actual release!

Okay, now you totally have to have a cheat code in the final game to turn samus into Mario. YOU GOTTA DO IT!
