Title: I Wanna be the Tribute - A tribute to IWBTG
Post by: shaman666 on May 01, 2009, 10:21:30 pm
[edit] Download link: http://www.mediafire.com/?1w9f1ljdwfegxzo

Well guys, I'll post here some screens and talk about my project, I Wanna be the Tribute. The game is being developed by me, and graphics and some ideas, by my friend FoxRichards.
I started the project using tiji's engine, and it's heavily modified with added features and stuff. I also merged the control edit in-game.

[edit] Link to the game is above

To the screenshots:

Title Screen (http://i40.tinypic.com/5yeuef.jpg)

Area select screen (http://i41.tinypic.com/152m74i.jpg)

First room on bottom left area (http://i42.tinypic.com/23lazrq.jpg), btw this is the default kid costume

8-bit nostalgia (http://i39.tinypic.com/i1bt02.jpg), I loved this game lol had to put a room of it here
 
DS room (http://i43.tinypic.com/212ekox.jpg), god, this room is hard even for me, I'm probably tuning it down on the final version

Wind room (http://i43.tinypic.com/qz2p2x.jpg), I've made an cool wind effect for this room, also, that's the kid's clothes while playing in medium

Bottom right area (http://i44.tinypic.com/24ca7ut.jpg), and orc costume =)

XD (http://i43.tinypic.com/ixegpc.jpg), no comments about this one

Jedah (http://i39.tinypic.com/1zex01.jpg), he's on the game because he's badass


I'll probably upload the game by tomorrow night or sunday, then I'll update this post. Any feedback will be appreciated ^^
Thanks to kayin for the fantastic game and tiji for the engine, without it I couldn't have started the development on that.

HELL yeah, totally

I'm probably uploading this by tomorrow, I'm having some kind of memory leak problems that I'd like to solve before releasing (it's taking like 110mb of ram, this shouldn't be that way -.-)

at any rate, thanks for the comments, I hope you guys like the game itself ^^

Post by: shaman666 on May 03, 2009, 04:57:17 pm
Sorry for the double post, only to announce that I uploaded the current version of the game. the link is on the first post, it's around 8mb, and I still haven't figure out how to fix the memory problem, so you'll need at least 128mb of free ram only for the game (I don't think it's a big problem anyway, just want to make it consume less)

a few notes to be taken:

1- the main menu options are chosen with the mouse, so click one of the difficulty levels to start a game
2- clicking load game without a save file will bring a game over screen, I'll try to fix that later, not a big problem
3- if the game is starting in the last save point instead of the title screen, try deleting the temp file in the folder
4- the current version only have 1 secret available, and no extra costumes for now
5- there's nothing done after the 4 bosses are defeated
6- I'm totally redesigning the boss of the top-left area, I was still learning GML there, you can see the progress of my learning thru the bosses, but that is for the final version only


any bugs or suggestions, post here, I'll be glad to help =)

I think that, at the moment, impossible is indeed impossible on the game, because 2 of the bosses have some random patterns that WILL kill you if you're unlucky, there's no skill related. I'm trying to fix it, tho

upperright path is what i started with, and im kind of impressed, but the savepoints on even medium are not spaced very evenly...
going 3 rooms on medium with no save... that's not right.

edit:ok, how do i go through this room?
(http://img76.imageshack.us/img76/7789/90478119.png)


edit again: never mind, i got it... i thought i already tried that...


EDIT::; is there a secret to the DS room...
because everytime i get shot in the top of the head by the time the invaders are touching me.

suggestion: Invaders only shoot down.. not diagonally...

question: what's the music for the lower left path?
Title: Re: I Wanna be the Tribute - A tribute to IWBTG
Post by: shaman666 on May 04, 2009, 06:53:11 am
thanks for the suggestion, I'll add a savepoint or two there in medium =)

and the DS room the secret is just kill the invaders  9_9... and yeah, I know the only shoot down, but it was way to easy if they only did that

and mhmm... I'll see what I can do about the sound, I think there's a command somewhere in gm7 to mute the sound, just gotta learn it XD

Registered just to review! Finished the game and figured I'd give you some constructive criticism. I know this is just beta so I'll hold off on most the obvious things I know you'll fix/change anyway.


1. In the Metroid area where you have to fall through secret passages, it's possible to infinite jump when in the far right falling passage as long as you're in this area. I don't know if this is intentional or what, but I found it odd.

2. In the area past the flying ship/falling spikes after blasting your way through all the blocks, the area with the save point behind the tiny crack, you can jump and save after the spikes have already fell and when you reload, you reload into instant death. My first playthrough I did this (as would a lot of people trying to hit the tiny crack with their bullets) and had to completely start over. I know this is a possibility with anywhere in an IWBTG style game but this particular area it's going to happen all the time.

3. The fire spitting enemies take wayyyyy too much health to kill. Even if you're skilled at never dying there, shooting at 2 normal enemies for 3 minutes is a bit too long for my tastes. It seems like they have more health than even the bosses!

4. Some platforms such as the one before the DS section take forever to return to a position for you to jump on. It's not a big deal as most the areas around them are easy enough, but, if you make more areas that include platforms and they are followed by incredibly hard sections the simple wait for a platform can throw people off and detour them in an annoying, rather than hard way.

5. The 2 Bonzai Bill enemies before the boss in the Metroid Path is really cool, but having to backtrack and relaunch them to open a path to the boss gets a bit old.

6. The Demon's Crest boss needs some conditional code to restrict the curtain fire attack until all instances of the homing attack are gone. The combination of both no matter what direction and skill you have has a success rate of 0%. You're dead if it happens. The unfairness of this boss is like Dracula, only much much worse. It's a decent boss, just needs that tiny adjustment. Health could be higher as well.

7. Bowser boss is incredibly easy if you stand right up under it's legs you can dodge every attack easily except the Cheep-cheep which rarely attacks you. Adding more of the Cheep-cheep would fix that little technique.

8. Only 1 part can I comment on being too hard: the jump in the SMB2 area over the first cactus. It depends way to heavy on getting the jump physics too exact. Or I could just suck.



Also, some good things.


1. The entire invisible block obstacles are creative and well done.

2. The DS section was awesome. Took me awhile to put it together that I can use my mouse so I felt like an idiot for spending half an hour trying to just survive.

3. The Phoenix Wright boss was the best, people complain about a skip button but nobody has seemed to talk about the fight itself. It has a pattern that is easy to learn yet possible to manipulate in different ways which is good for a boss in this kind of game. It reminds me a bit of Kraidgief though.

4. Love the costumes.



Overall it's a pretty cool fangame using Tijit's engine. I'm designing a fangame using the same engine as well so I can respect the amount of effort put into this. If you want to add walljump to the movement engine I wrote some code for it though it's far from perfect.

Registered just to review! Finished the game and figured I'd give you some constructive criticism. I know this is just beta so I'll hold off on most the obvious things I know you'll fix/change anyway.


1. In the Metroid area where you have to fall through secret passages, it's possible to infinite jump when in the far right falling passage as long as you're in this area. I don't know if this is intentional or what, but I found it odd.

2. In the area past the flying ship/falling spikes after blasting your way through all the blocks, the area with the save point behind the tiny crack, you can jump and save after the spikes have already fell and when you reload, you reload into instant death. My first playthrough I did this (as would a lot of people trying to hit the tiny crack with their bullets) and had to completely start over. I know this is a possibility with anywhere in an IWBTG style game but this particular area it's going to happen all the time.

3. The fire spitting enemies take wayyyyy too much health to kill. Even if you're skilled at never dying there, shooting at 2 normal enemies for 3 minutes is a bit too long for my tastes. It seems like they have more health than even the bosses!

4. Some platforms such as the one before the DS section take forever to return to a position for you to jump on. It's not a big deal as most the areas around them are easy enough, but, if you make more areas that include platforms and they are followed by incredibly hard sections the simple wait for a platform can throw people off and detour them in an annoying, rather than hard way.

5. The 2 Bonzai Bill enemies before the boss in the Metroid Path is really cool, but having to backtrack and relaunch them to open a path to the boss gets a bit old.

6. The Demon's Crest boss needs some conditional code to restrict the curtain fire attack until all instances of the homing attack are gone. The combination of both no matter what direction and skill you have has a success rate of 0%. You're dead if it happens. The unfairness of this boss is like Dracula, only much much worse. It's a decent boss, just needs that tiny adjustment. Health could be higher as well.

7. Bowser boss is incredibly easy if you stand right up under it's legs you can dodge every attack easily except the Cheep-cheep which rarely attacks you. Adding more of the Cheep-cheep would fix that little technique.

8. Only 1 part can I comment on being too hard: the jump in the SMB2 area over the first cactus. It depends way to heavy on getting the jump physics too exact. Or I could just suck.

awesome post, thanks a lot
let's comment your comments!

1- a friend told me about that and I completely forgot to fix it before releasing XD it's easy to fix, should be done on the next version (this happens because the collisinons on the blocks being pixel-perfect, instead of blocking the entire area the block is

2- oh damn, I made that crack intending to make the shot go while you're on the ground, instead of needing to jump, but after doing that, I modified the height of the bullet creation so I think it fucked up... I'll fix it for next release

3- they're killable to make the room "easier" but you can go thru it without killing them, that's the intention of the high hp

4- yeah, I get annoyed by this too xD but I didn't see a solution for that not being increase the plataform speed, which would be bad to time the jump to the DS room

5- I guess I'll add a medium-difficult savepoint to after that thing (increasing the size of the shaft you fall down). on hard or above, tho, it's intended to have to backtrack

6- I already fixed that for the next release, now the blue fire will destroy the homing on contact, so you don't have to worry about avoiding both at the same time

7- yeah, the bowser fight sucks atm, I'll probably revamp it completely... when I get some ideas, that is

8- totally intended xD I thought it was hard too, but now I mastered it, so everyone can


and if you can give me some advice on the wall jump, hell yeah, I need, please xD all my attempts at it sucked bad

and lets say I was inspired on the phoenix wright fight =)

Just tried this, an awesome game. I beat the top left, and went up to the ds room, was it the bottom left of what. I just tried to survive there, made it a bit hard...
Keep working on this game, great areas. I'm doing the bottom right now. Wonder if the middle one isn't finished or what, couldn't find anything there. And, you should somehow make it so that you can't spawn inside spikes, that got me stuck a few times. And, restarting makes some room flash there, you can see it clearly by spamming r.

the middle portal is like an "trophy room", there are frames of the bosses you already defeated and the secret items will be there too, and it's also where you will change the costumes in the next version

Ok. Trying to beat the whole thing now, haven't got stuck inside a spike yet.
Title: Walljump code
Post by: Angel of Apathy on May 06, 2009, 01:44:46 pm
Here's the walljump code I made. It seems like jumping left doesn't work as well though I think that has something to do with the way horizontal movement is setup to prioritize moving right. I'm also trying to get it to launch at a faster 45 degree angle when simply pressing right or left so that it matches IWBTG more accurate but it's still kinda wonky. You can climb with it though as long as you don't hold right on the right walljump when pushing left.

Put it in the step event for the player object under the rest of the movement code.

Code: [Select]
if distance_to_object(spr_WallvineL) = 1 && place_free(x,y+1) {

vspeed=2;
maxFallSpeed=2;
sprite_index=sprPlayerSlidingR;
image_speed=1/2;

    if keyboard_check_pressed(global.button2) && keyboard_check(global.button3) {
    sprite_index=sprPlayerJump;
    maxFallSpeed=8
    vspeed = -7;
    hspeed = 15;
    sound_play(sndWallJump);
    }
   
    if keyboard_check_pressed(global.button2) && keyboard_check(global.button3=false) {
    maxFallSpeed=8
    sprite_index=sprPlayerFall;
    }

}

if distance_to_object(spr_WallvineL) > 1 && place_free(x,y+1) {
maxFallSpeed=8
}


if distance_to_object(spr_WallvineR) = 1 && place_free(x,y+1) {

vspeed=2;
maxFallSpeed=2;
sprite_index=sprPlayerSlidingR;
image_speed=1/2;

    if keyboard_check_pressed(global.button1) && keyboard_check(global.button3) {
    sprite_index=sprPlayerJump;
    maxFallSpeed=8
    vspeed = -7;
    hspeed = -15;
    sound_play(sndWallJump);
    }
   
    if keyboard_check_pressed(global.button1) && keyboard_check(global.button3=false) {
    maxFallSpeed=8
    sprite_index=sprPlayerFall;
    }

}

if distance_to_object(spr_WallvineR) > 1 && place_free(x,y+1) {
maxFallSpeed=8
}

With this code it slows you down and changes the graphic to the slide animation when within 1 pixel to the vine graphic and within 1 pixel above solid ground (in air). Then it lets you jump with left or right when holding jump. If you aren't holding jump you just fall down exactly like in IWBTG.

It's kind of rough but it works.

and thanks for the code, angel, if I ever find myself in need of adding a walljump room I'll try it out, tho I don't think I will, walljumping on iwbtg was so fucked up, that I don't want ppl frustrated on it..

btw, I just added the skip button for both

I was able to find 3 secret rooms, all were under construction and not the one with a boss in it. If there's one for each area then I guess SW would hold the secret boss, but no luck finding any secret rooms there.

Edit: Alright, found it. Swapped to Medium so I could die more since this one was hidden very well.

So far from what i've seen it looks very clean. The secret rooms are awesome, it makes it more interesting and its fun to look for them. I like that you can change the controls from the menu. The only thing i wouldn't mind seeing changed is the animation when you die. It looks like a cloud and it doesnt really fit the act of an exploding person.

Downloaded this game today, it kicked my ass in a lot of places but in a fun way.

DS screen is an absolute nightmare. It is the 'spike corridor' of this game imo. Absolutely was not expecting Phoenix Wright as a boss, but it was fun yet challenging.  I'm tackling the Metroid section at the minute, far from easy. But I wasnt expecting anything less.

All I wanted to say is, looking good so far, keep it up guys :-)

I can verify that it isn't fixed in the latest version since my save is now stuck at the same spot. It's a bummer since I just cleared the Metroid path as well =(.

To fix it, maybe you can move that thin gap lower so you can shoot through it while just standing still and shift the save point down accordingly.

Aww crap, being the technological illiterate I am I can't even find it. Like, I searched through my computer for files called "save" and the ones that appeared were modified too early to be my save since I just messed it up late last night while the last modified dates on them list far earlier.

For some reason when I tried searching my computer for things name I Wanna Be The Tribute nothing came up, not even the application. So I am thoroughly confused.

Here's your fixed save Klagmar, if you haven't gotten it fixed already.

GhostPikmin, if you attach your save here, I could probably fix it for you as well.

Oh, thank you very much!

hey guys, I haven't been around for a while because of college (getting my degree next week  ;D) so let me update a little here:
I'll probably delay a bit or even stop development on IWBTT
the reason? there are SO many IWBTG fangames out there now that it's not even fun anymore. Some are good, some are +- but hell there are some so bad that makes me want to throw myself out of the window... and if more bad fangames appear like that, more people will talk "IWBTG fangame? naah, those aren't good..."
I'll probably start new projects not related to IWBTG, but if I see need or feel like to, I will continue to work a little more on IWBTT, and I'm still accepting suggestions (even tho that with so many fangames, much fun stuff have already been covered)

How do you get past the twin bullet bills? Once I finish one off, no matter how far to the other side of the screen I run, I can't get rid of it fast enough! Is there a secret hiding hole or something? ???

Whoops, nevermind. :D Figured it out. I do have another question though. Is there any way to save after them so that I don't have to do the bullet bills again every time I die?

Ehh, nevermind. I already started over. I guess it shouldn't take too long to get past all the bosses again. I already beat bowser, and I'm back at the area with the rocket. This time I made sure to save while jumping down.

So now of course I'm stuck on the imp guy in space. ARRGHH!!! And I can't seem to dodge that spinning bullet attack. Is there any special method?

EDIT: Nevermind, I got lucky and killed him before he could shoot it off. Yay! :kid: ;D
Title: Re: I Wanna be the Tribute - A tribute to IWBTG
Post by: flairina on June 16, 2009, 05:13:57 pm
Since I'm pretty sure I'm done with the game (having beat all four bosses), I'm going to post a few critiques/comments.

1. The imp guy needs to be toned down a bit. If he uses the spinning bullets attack, you are virtually guarenteed to die. Not because they aren't dodgeable, but because it lasts so long it is likely an asteroid will come along and crush you. If you try to jump over it, you usually run into a bullet. The bullet attack needs to either be slowed down or not last so long.

2. When fighting Bowser, it's possible to get the buzzy beetle to slide off the screen, leaving you able to shoot Bowser nonstop. I like this glitch, but if you want that fight to be as hard as it should be, you'd best make it so that cannot happen.

3. In the rocket room where you shoot the blocks, it is possible to shoot the save point while you are inside the area where the spikes reappear (as I earlier stated). Please fix this!

Otherwise, great game! Can't wait until the final boss is put in! ;D

 :fruit: :fruit: :fruit:

hey sherman666 i just wanna say this game is awsome i found those secrets
: show
is the first secret located near the exitebike area i jumped to avoid the bike then went down to a secret boss that was pretty much easy as you can kinda cheese it by going to the first block then keep shoting him NOTE: that there is NO muisic when i go there but overall cool secret dude! the rest where not finished the bottom right i found just fall of the platform near the bit with snakes in the sand then use your jump and there you go the top left one is easy just beat bowser but DO NOT take the path to the main screen instead shoot bullet to revel a hidden room. meteriod was the hardest as i just could not find it but then when the two spikes fly up on the second screen just fall through that tiny gap then HOLD LEFT to ovoid the fruit then it brings you to yet another secret roo under construction so there you have it 
is it true that you are going to do YET another four levels after these first four? could you show us some screenshot of them or any spoilers? thanks bud GOOD LUCK with the game hope it turns out ok.

I know, he's really hard. You just have to keep trying until you get lucky and he doesn't decide to fire off his spinning bullets attack. It'll happen eventually. Good luck! ;D

: show
1: Go to the save file for I wanna be the tribute. 2: Open the file with notepad. 3: Find the 9 costume sections. 4: Change the numbers in them so that they all match. 5: If done right you should be in a different costume.  If not then watch this tutorial http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8-zYPfDesDo

lol sooo I just beat the darkwing duck or whatever boss, and I gotta point something out.  Skip to 7:00 of this video: http://www.youtube.com/user/Levirules#p/a/u/0/UzTaV-9JZcA

That's what was my no-longer-in-progress work-in-progress from almost a year ago.  Great minds think alike : )

Anyway, I beat 3/4 of the bosses so far in one sitting, though admittedly, I play the fangames on the easiest setting.  I made it through IWBTG twice and got all the secret items, but just don't have the patience for the fan games with less saves.  It's still tough and really good tho!

I met him and many of my friends there, so it's a really important thing to us =)

Post by: shaman666 on November 24, 2009, 07:20:43 am
guys, I've decided to do something different

there will be 2 new open areas (like those currently in)
and then, it will open up the path to the last area, which is going to be friggin' epic and gigantic, with an epic bossfight at the end

I'll release a version with the 2 new areas and then will release the final version adding the last one (which will take quite a few time)

I'll post a few more screens later today, as I progress through the new area

also, do you guys want spoilers about the bosses or keep that as a surprise?

YES.  I FINALLY BEAT THE GARGOYLE BOSS.  :D

Great game!  I'm pretty sure I found all of the secrets.
I have the same problems as most people:
1) Tone down the Gargoyle.
2) Make the DS room easier. (It helps to change my keys to WASD, though.)
3) Bowser is too easy.  I've managed to one-shot it a few times.

I can't wait for more!

(P.S. I love the costumes!)

You could just have a text box saying

appearing, and then falling on the kid.  :P

you can use your current save, I guess, I didn't change much in the older areas (just changed what people complained, like gayrgole too hard and bowser too easy, and the "eternal death" save point)

giygas will take his place and bowser will be an optional boss in a secret area (nothing new, just the same area as before, just to not scrap it)


as soon as I'm done with that, I'm releasing a new version

Wow, that was difficult.

That was a great game, start to finish Shaman, and, like IWBTFG, reminded me a lot of the original IWBTG. I liked all the designs for 'The Kid', and look forward to the new release. My only problem with the last game was bowser, because I felt he was too easy, but upon reading you've replaced him with none other than Giygas (I wanna be the Giygas?) I'm really pumped now, especially after reading your description of it. I can't wait.

I won't promise anything for now, but I'll keep the work going, only need to fix a few things and it's pretty much done.

I glanced through about five pages of this topic and I didn't find this asked: Where did you get the title screen music? It's epic as hell. Is it all from Zero Wing? I recognize one or two specific parts from that.

I've played through 2-3 worlds and I'm very impressed how well-made this is. It plays just like the original (though there's some lag when you die, though, but I may not have the most up-to-date version) and is of the quality one would expect of not just a tribute, but even a full sequel. I'm strongly looking forward to updates.

It plays just like the original (though there's some lag when you die, though, but I may not have the most up-to-date version) and is of the quality one would expect of not just a tribute, but even a full sequel. I'm strongly looking forward to updates.
yeah, it's zero wing, pretty much a remix of all songs in the game, I found it... well, somewhere on the internets, now I can't recall exactly XD

about updates, yeah, I've been having little to no time of develepment this start of year, I'm settling down some stuff in my life, but I promise it will be done before the world ends!

the wait is almost over for the next version, I plan on releasing it this week

what will be on this version:

- 2 new areas, with 2 new bosses
- the top-left area completely redone graphically and some traps and a whole new boss instead of crappy bowser
- 2 secrets (new clothes for the kid, I plan on making them harder to obtain on the final version tho)
- a small message when you finish all areas. not a real ending, but it's just not a cliffhanger like last version

This is it!

I've finally finished everything. Here it is for download:

http://www.mediafire.com/?l0gzm2dmjyz

What's new on this version?

- 2 new areas
- 3 new bosses
- 4 secret clothes for the kid
- pressing backspace sends you back to the room selection
- top left area completely redone graphically and got a new boss (bowser is gone, maybe he'll be back someday, who knows)


there's still the final area and final boss to be finished, so give me some time! play this version, report bugs, whatever, I need feedback ^^

I hope everyone likes it, and sorry for taking so long.

at least this time you have a ending screen (nothing special, just something to warn you that you finished that part of the game)

there's still one area and one boss to be done

and this boss... heh... I feel pity for those who try it
I'm even considering making it optional... something like emerald weapon in FF7.

You managed to make the game even better.  I like the way the costumes work, but you should be able to select which you want from the level select screen.  The fish is hard as hell, but still incredibly fun.  The boss right before Giygas IS SO HARD! :P  Giygas is hard, too and I eventually gave up.  The new Mario section is IMPOSSIBLE TO FIGURE OUT.
There are two problems with the game, though:
: show
If you keep hitting skip at the start of the boss (on the falling screen), the boss gets glitched and you can't move.
(http://img522.imageshack.us/img522/796/iwbttglitch.png)

I'm not sure where this leads if you go in the fake block and up, but it's useless as far as I can see...
Also, why'd you remove the gap on this screen that you use to save from the left side?
(http://img190.imageshack.us/img190/4328/iwbttsecret.png)


*EDIT* I forgot to mention that the section with the plane was incredibly easy for me to figure out, but that might be because I know your kind of traps haha.

*EDIT* The purple attack from Giygas looks pretty bad and is sometimes impossible to win against.  If Shaman is reading this, can you make it so the boss can't shoot at you while the purple attack is firing?

*EDIT* A few people did not know that you could move up and down on the Giygas boss.  Can Shaman maybe put a note saying that you can please?

wow thanks for the quick feedback

and on giygas he already doesn't shoot you when he uses the purple thing, except if something went wrong and I didn't notice

I'll fix the two bugs you mentioned, thanks a lot man

Post by: Elmo3000 on February 15, 2010, 10:55:07 pm
I've been fighting Giygas for a few hours now, and have a few suggestions.

The most I've ever damaged him is 5 times, so somebody please tell me that he dies after 6 hits. My hands would fall off if I had to get 8 or 9.

Although I imagine this would be hard to fix, sometimes the light bubble appears directly in the path of Giygas... if you do manage to avoid contact with him when getting into the bubble, you're far too close to have any chance of avoiding anything he throws at you. Still, skill with a hint of luck has been in pretty much all IWBTG fangames, and IWBTG itself. Trying to speedrun 'Boss Rush' was hell fighting Dracula...

Also, before you enter the boss fight, when you can enter the phase distorter, you can just jump over it and walk left along an invisible passage and get to the end. You have to beat the boss to actually beat the area, but it still seems kinda... random.  :P

I hear talk about a fish boss. I really hope it's the Dopefish from Commander Keen.  ;D

He can't shoot the 4 blue dots during the purple attack, but he can shoot the line of 3 dots that you use to hurt him.  It's unlikely, but possible.  Also, like Elmo3000 said, the bubble can appear in Giygas's path and you can't dodge him.

*EDIT* Can someone please help me on screen  1 in the Mario section?

*EDIT* Another thing for Shaman: while fighting the Gayrgole, an asteroid fired while doing the spinny atttack.

that's intended, if you see him shoot the 3 dots that hurt him, shoot it back, even during the purple thing (it only takes 1 second)

the thing about the bubble appearing on his path can't be really fixed, only if I make giygas not hurt on touch, but that would make the fight easier... so just avoid it and jump back in the bubble on the last second xD

screen 1 of mario section is a blind jump thing, you have to pay attention to where you are using the "windows" and make your way up

and it's intended to have the asteroid come in the gayrgole fight, I reduced it's hitpoints tho, you'll destroy it much easier now even during a the spin attack


and I enjoy randomness on fights, it makes you think about your strategy, having 100% deterministic is not fun and the replay value drops to 0, why do something again if it's the same all over?

also I'll fix the phase distorter thing was supposed to be a secret room, but I didn't add anything there yet and forgot to add the "secret under construction", because it's basically the same room that was bowser's exit
Title: Re: I Wanna be the Tribute - A tribute to IWBTG
Post by: Elmo3000 on February 16, 2010, 02:56:50 pm
Whew! I finally beat it! I couldn't find my old save so I had to go through the old sections again, but since I know them pretty well, it wasn't that hard (With the exception of Giygas, but he was really fun too.) ;D

As for the new bits, Giygas, despite taking many attempts, is a really amazing boss. Kudos there, don't worry too much about the luck part, since that's been present in many great IWBTG bosses. Pokey's appearance was fun too, although it was a bit repetitive when you find out that every boss other than Phoenix Wright seems to turn red and explode.

The Mario World section can be confusing in places, but that confusion is mainly just the screen with the warping. Still, it didn't take me that long to pick it up, although since one of the warps is a pixel away from landing on a spike, don't expect everyone to guess that quickly. I liked the idea of shooting the key into the lock, and having a ghost that sped up near the end of it. After that, the next two screens were ok, but there really weren't many traps. The first Mario World screen after the Ghost House only had 1 trap, and the next had 2 (3 if you count the Chargin' Chuck which is kinda obvious) Still, I needed a break after the warping, so having a more relaxed bit was fine.

The boss of the Mario segment... Whew. I liked the way you had 3 choices, although the 'It's Koffing!' choice looked a little un-gamely   :o Still, I spent a few turns picking Mario because I thought I could run off and jump back on. I never succeeded... The actual boss was pretty fun, it could get hectic quickly, but if you were careful, they didn't take that long to beat. A good balance!

I was really looking forward to the DOS game segment because I LOVE Commander Keen 4, so needless to say, I loved the boss. The idea was great, the execution was great... everything was great! My only downer on this fight was that the conclusion is a bit of an anti-climax. It might just be the Keen fan inside of me, but the Kid could pick up some Neural Stunner ammo and shoot the Dopefish like that. Ever fought Cavity Sam in 'I Wanna Be The Ultimatum'? It's really tough at first, then it finishes as a fairly simple boss fight. You could kill the Dopefish like that, tricks and maze, then a simple neural stunner duel.

As for the actual DOS game world, I liked it! I've never played 'Dangerous Dave' or whatever game the balls came from, but the levels were creative and fun, and not too hard. That jump that dcx666 had trouble with is possible, albeit pretty hard considering it's in a tough area. Around 75% of my deaths from that savepoint to the next savepoint were that jump, but it's near the beginning so it's not like you have to replay a lot. The Keen segment was fun, although it was weird to see Keen stuck in there. Mortimer McMire was always a massive douche in those games, put HIM in there  :P

Alright, any more paragraphs and this will officially be an essay, so to summarize, I love it!

Giygas has got to be the biggest pain in the *** ever. I've only managed to score four hits on him so far. He is quite well designed though. :D I also managed to figure out the blind jump part, but I didn't try to get past the part after that.

the first 2 I agree they are bugs, but I don't see how they can be used to cheat...

and the third is intended, it was to make the guy think all the jumps he did before were wasted

Haha.  The first one you can COMPLETELY cheat.  When the three spikes fly at you from the left, you go back to where they used to be.  You can fall right through them into the plane and skip the rest of the screen.

Koffing is so hard.

Also, I found a cheat for the Koffing boss.  It doesn't help, but it seems unintentional.  If you choose Mario, you can survive his body slam and then just walk around on the clouds.

Post by: jbaptistec on February 27, 2010, 05:08:58 am
My strategy for Koffing was waiting until the pokeballs flood the screen, then go for a quick kill.
That rather worked, since Koffing's attacks are fairly easy to dodge if you don't hit him.
Title: Re: I Wanna be the Tribute - A tribute to IWBTG

You have to fall off the edge, then double jump back on so you're on the other side of him.
It's really easy to do actually.

my left and right are A and D, and my shoot button is down, jump is left.

everytime i shot, i moved down...

Giygas isn't so bad... it's the fact UP is slow as fuck in that fight. He doesn't fly through the 'safe zone' often for me.... but when the bubble gets smaller and his attacks get bigger? Its so fucking hard to stay in the zone and dodge those attacks.

I found the hardest part was that it was difficult to anticipate where his attacks would hit with the background moving and disorienting you. Eventually I just started moving once he threw the cluster and eventually won. Giygas also kept moving into my bubble just when I needed it. Quite annoying. >:(

Or am I supposed to make it myself to save my game? It's a bummer that I got to my fourth boss and had my file lost because my computer installed updates.

Just throwing some stuff out there, absolutely love the game. The Koffing boss had me laughing to tears. Best use of that meme that I've ever seen.

And Koffing is really annoying to me. The worst part is that its attacks are completely random, so it's mainly luck based, something that I think most fangames have too much of.


The Super Mario World part is pretty cool though. I think it's almost as good as mine. You've even got a Kaizo trap in there, and the coinblocks.

Koffing was definitely the hardest boss in this game. What really made me rage about him was the music. All other bosses had Excellent® background music playing during the fight (Phoenix Wright, the duck thing in the Metroid area) but I don't like the Koffing boss music.

koffing is a very gimmicky fight, the secret is in shooting the smoke as soon as possible, because if you let it up too much time, it becomes two, and those two will become four, and so forth

TheFangameDestroyer will review your game

+New costumes were pleasant surprise
+Level layout is almost always well done
+Megaman style level selection is a plus
+DS room was marvelous idea overall
+Phoenix Wright boss fight is downright epic
+you dont overdo it on repetitive traps or  :spikes:

-Bosses go back and forth between awesome, halfassed, and cakewalks. 
-Koffing boss fight is too hard for wrong reasons, even after your figure out the correct strategy you will still constantly die because of the random nature of his attacks.
-Jedah boss fight is a complete joke
-Gygas boss fight was unwinable 25% of the time because of the randomness of the safe zones.  she would fly right through it the moment you needed to be in it, or get you with a projectile.
-a few to many cheap kill spots
-costumes mess with your kill spot perception

Overall: A near perfect fangame surpassed at the moment only by I wanna be the fangame.  The biggest gripes in the game are the bossfights.  It always felt like you were using randomness as a crutch instead of a spice which is a shame because the rest of the game is great.  Other than that I commend you on making a very enjoying(most of the time) tribute.

TheFangameDestroyer says: Oddly enough I was going to review your game, only to be stopped by your announcement that the final is nearly done.  I have played 3.0 so I am excited to see the new changes.  Do not think I am out to be a jerk.  I actually overall thought highly of your game, though it is of a different flavor.  Hope to see final soon.

and yeah, I agree on some bosses being much more awesome than others, it's just a reflection of my progress with the game maker engine, I was trying new and more awesome stuff each boss (the old bowser and dracula duck were the 2 first I made, and I agree they're HORRIBLE)
I really wish I could make an overhaul of the game, remake some parts, fix some bosses and bugs and actually give the game a proper ending, but I really can't find the inspiration nor time to do this at the moment, so it will take a good time until that...

but I'm really thankful for your review and I agree 100% with everything you said! I just don't care much on how good it is compared to other games, I just want to people to have fun with it, that's all =) if people enjoy the game, I'm happy with that, and I'll most likely point them out about fangame, ultimatum and other good fangames around (if there are any others, I'm kind out of the iwbtg scene these days)

It's more like the music that made tribute feel more let down with the :achem: MIDI files.

midis give the 8/16-bit touch I expect from a iwbtg-style game, mp3's, wav's, ogg's or whatever are a complete waste of memory

maybe, one day, in a distant future, I dig up the project and do something or another, so yeah

making this game felt good, when fangames were still something cool and fun, now everyone and their grandmothers are making their sucky little iwbtg fangame, which took away all my will to finish this. so if you're never seeing an update to tribute again, be thankful to all those "I wanna be the shit game" you see in this forum

thanks everyone, keep spreading the word about the game, it may not be finished, but I'm pretty sure that what's in is pretty fun!

Yeah I guess, But FTG doesn't feel like a I wanna be the game, not saying its a bad game, coz' it ain't, Just Very hard to get used to and Very Hard to complete in general.

Games like Pikory, Fangame, Boshy ALL have Great graphics (although Boshy has TOO good graphics that almost gave myself a seizure with the final boss), great design and taste in music..

Though it just doesn't feel like the engine we all grew up with like GB, IWBT fangame, Tribute, Ultimatum.
Good Ol' times..

Did anyone ever find the secret item in the Mario section?
And if you found it, where is it?
I just need the screen it's on, so I'll know where to look.

Working on the final level right now. Also read the feedback on ultimatum which just sounded like a bunch of * complaining that an IWBT game is too hard.

I promise this will be insanely hard. I think this should be enough as a grand finale.
Don't expect to beat the final boss either, I'll probably just give you a congratulations screen for getting there, then it's up to you to fight and keep losing (it will still be possible, only stupidly hard)

I'll come back here in a month or two with the final release. get your butts ready.

SORRY, LEMME REPHRASE WHAT I SAID:

shaman, you made one of the few good fangames, and you're TRYING to ruin it.
Do what you want with your game if you want everyone with a brain to hate it.
Games that are hard just to be hard are never fun (unless they are done amazingly).

And invalidating people's opinions just because they enjoy watching MLP is low.
You are so incredibly full of yourself, and it's really pretty sad.

Have fun fucking up your game, man.

of course:

first: you said that the ultimatum thread looked like a bunnch of ponyfags complaining about a game being hard, what the hell? first , you dont need to say ponyfags, that was totally uncalled for and its completly unnecesary, also, did you even played ultimatum 2? did you even read the complains? did you even looked at some of the screenshots?

second: a final boss that is almost impossible and just adding a congratulations screen....seriously? why even bother making a game or a level if you are just going to throw a hard ass final level if you are going to say.."sorry guys, i dont feel like making a good and challenging final boss, game over", the game already has bosses (they suck but at least it has some) , why not add a good final one? why even bother continuing with the project then.

sorry for any typos, i dont feel like spellchecking now

Shaman, I used to respect you, But I can truly say that I no longer have the privilege to do so anymore.
So I'm going to end this argument with two hopes I have for you:

Firstly, I hope your game falls flat on it's ass. Your game is chump change to the standards that people have now than before.

Secondly, I hope you realize how much of a douchebag you've become.

well, I never had any respect for you to begin with, so we're even now, it's only fair
I don't really care about your opinion or what you "hope" my game ends being or not. this is just my hobby, I don't make any money out of it, and do it for fun, it's people like you, and your attitude, that made me lost all will to continue working on it, and now that I decide to come back, you come with this bullshit just because I "offended" your "kind" and think this gives you a free pass to hate on everything from me.

and why are you calling me a douchebag? this is far more offensive than anything I said... you guys take everything too serious, that's not healthy

all I want to do here is finish my game, and you're not helping


of course:

sorry for any typos, i dont feel like spellchecking now



First off, I think all those three "rage" posts are related to the old version of my post, which is now edited to reflect my opinion on the matter, and I apologize if anyone got offended by anything I said, wasn't the intention, I'm just used to calling "them" like that. and indeed I didn't play the game, I just commented on the suggested thread, because that what it sounded to me, and from a few screenshots, it didn't look THAT bad, but then again, I may be totally wrong

second, yeah I think you're right. that was just an idea at the spur of the moment, maybe it's not so great, is it?
I won't make it impossibly hard, just very very hard, like a last boss should be. I already have an crazy idea about it and can't wait to show it

It's simple.
The reason we don't want you to finish your game like that is because we already have enough shitty fangames.

Your fangame is good now, for some people could be like a bible (exagerating? dunno).
There aren't many good fangames in this forum (check the first thread to see a list of them).
If you fuck-up a good fangame, is like attacking with a knife in the heart (maybe I'm exagerating again, but you could try to see it from that point of view).

In my opinnion, you should:

Make your last boss hard, but not ASS-HARD LIKE YOU'RE GOING TO GET ALL THE HAZARDS OF THE WHOLE GAME AND THROW THEM AT THE SAME TIME SO WE CAN'T EVER WIN OMG WHAT A SHITTY GAME I HATE IT, IT'S IMPOSSIBLE NO POINT PLAYING THIS, RAGEQUIT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hope you take what I said above in account, thx if you do so.

yeah I totally agree with you, and that's the main reason I stopped working on tribute, so many terrible fangames... i wanna be the guy fangames were starting to get bad rep just of how bad they were... it felt good to be one of the first to do something like this, but in the end this forum ended up plagued with kids thinking they can make games, and everyone who was here from the beggining knows what I'm talking about

but now the dust is setting and I have some spare time on me, so i decided to finally finish the game after all those years, because it somehow feels bad that the game is "incomplete", without the final area and boss I promised so long ago

and yeah the boss will be hard, but for totally different reasons than projectiles shot at you

Mr.Shaman666. Sorry to write this in here, but thinking writing about this would be more efficient so I write this in here.
(If you don`t want me to write this in here, tell me and I`ll move this to my post, 'Tracking back to Korea')
I said before about korean fangames and concluded they are all bad. In there I said about some bad things of IWBTAS by INXXXXX. But there`s one more thing which is related to your IWBTTribute.

(http://i50.tinypic.com/23vkj6v.png)

Even though IWBTAS isn`t available at now, maker of that game sometimes uploads the spoiler of the game(for promotion of his game, obviously)and from that video clip I could get that screen. As you could see, there`s your Tribute Kid in INXXXXX`s game. Since Tribute Kid`s character dot is somewhat intricate and thus cannot be ripped easily, and since lots of koreans seems to enjoy copying other fangames almost perfectly, I doubt their using decompiler, and this is somewhat maybe another example of using decompiler... Even though my expectation is wrong and they did rip off your Tribute Kid`s sprite via numberless screenshots, it is true anyway that he is using your Tribute Kid`s sprite without your permission.
So I hope you to beware of that.

You guys sure have a lot of free time. Stay at forums, calling out people, trying (hard) to prove something just for no reason.

Fangames suck. Yes.
Korean fangames suck. Yes.

Fangames. ALL fangames. In general, suck. You should know that. What's the point of calling out people?

I was not aware of that, but it's not like my character is copyrighted or something. I don't really mind, my character is not very original from the beggining - it's basically the Kid with a Met helmet and different colored shirt/cape.
But anyway, thanks for the information.

And I agree with the above poster. Fangames suck these days and while I feel proud of being on the first to provide a decent (at least in my opinion) alternative to IWBTG, I do feel ashamed to be part of this. That's the reason Tribute was delayed so much, and it's final version may never see the light of day outside of my personal circle of friends and family.

So, all in all, just let they do their shitty attempts at "fangames". The same thing happens in this forums all the time, it's not only with koreans. Doesn't affect me in the slightest, and shouldn't affect anyone.
