Great Game with a Musical Nitpicks
Overall, I think this game is fantastic. I think you did a great job exploring the possibilities of a classic game with the other classic characters. You also managed to stay faithful to the characters and keep them balanced in a new universe. The graphics are smooth as well.
My only complaint isn't with the gameplay or the characters, but with the music selections (which, of course, is more based on my personal preferences). For the most part, the music fits well with the characters/levels. However, there were a few times that I didn't feel like it worked so well, mostly with Link and Mega Man.
Since Link you used was from the original game, using the Temple theme from Zelda 2 (while it is a good song) from the underground level, didn't seem to work for me.
Mega Man's was the most jarring for me. I love the Mega Man 3 menu song, but it seems odd to have it play for the overworld level (I wonder what it would sound like with Woodman's theme). The MM2 boss theme also doesn't seem to fit with the castle theme either (one of the Dr. Wily Castle themes may work better). Flashman and Bubbleman's themes were GREAT choices for the underground and underwater (but why use Bubbleman's song for a cloud world?).
I do think the music selections for Samus, Bill, and Simon were spot.
Still, my only complaints are superficial music choices based off of my personal preference. This flash game is fantastic and I highly recommend giving it a whirl. I hope to see more like this or by Exploding Rabbit Studios.
wow. this game is so fun. i've been playing it for about 3 days now and i cant find one thing i don't like (except maybe simon's jumps.) many of the new characters fit in perfectly. i think the most fun addition is bill. he's got awesome jumps and an awesome fireflower power.
gamepad thing doesnt work
Brilliant, just brilliant!! This flash is now easily on the list of my favorite games!
Mario can sprint. No one else can. This makes Mario better than the others. Samus should be faster in her ball, and other players should have a form of sprinting too.
