Created by abatheguy using Stencyl. For Stencyl Jam 2012.
Main music: "Moving Around" from

This is my very first Flash game! The game itself took a long while to create, using and learning Stencyl. I can't imagine how long a fresh Flash game will take!

I had a number of ideas for this first project. The main reason why I did this was the forthcoming release of New Super Mario Bros. 2 for the Nintendo 3DS, which will introduce several new power-ups to help Mario get thousands of coins. I figure I should be showcasing the original "coin orgy" item--the Switch Block--introduced in Super Mario Bros. 3.

As this is created using Stencyl, the game isn't perfect. There were a number of obstacles to get this game to the best shape it's in now. This includes touching a coin adds one and only one to the coin counter, several collision bounds for individual items, and the occasional lag for collecting coins or having so many items on-screen at one time. But I hope you enjoyed the creativity I put into this. Enjoy!

The game showcases three switch blocks:
Red to switch between red bricks and coins.
Blue to reveal dotted blue bricks and coins.
Green to turn green spikes and spinies into coins.

Left/Right Arrows- Move
Z - Jump
X (hold down) - Run
P - Pause Game
R - Restart Level
Escape - Back to Menu

UPDATE v1.02: Turns out there was a little more to do in terms of setting up the medals lol. This update includes an new easy medal to obtain, just to see if it now all works, and it should.
Plus there is some problems with the "Load Data" code blocks that makes everything [object object] or Not A Number, so that's removed temporarily...
Now the main problems remaining is why some of the buttons don't work and why the stage select is multicolored. :-\



Rated 2.5 / 5 stars

It would've been rated higher, but he has so much trouble squeezing through some gaps he has to jump through it makes the game almost unplayable at points, specifically the little island under the switches in frenemies, that one had me literally frothing at the mouth

People find this review helpful!


Rated 3 / 5 stars

This game is addicting and its fun. The only thing that needs improvement is the movement and that hes a little too big to fit smoothly through some gaps. Maybe using the arrow keys or wasd as movement and jump? Other than this it was fun. I couldnt stop playing it.


Rated 4 / 5 stars

I like it, it's fun and not complicated. I give it 4/5 stars, because it still could be improve for some stuff to be really cool.

For example, we could use the coins to buy things, and so... Or eventually have a story with other caracters (we're are alone).

But the more important thing t improve in my opinion is the movement of the hero : he 'slip' on the sides. And for a platform game, THAT's annoying

Really good game though !
