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. :-\

This is a great game


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 !


Rated 3.5 / 5 stars

The game is good and i was able to finish it, but it slowed down on a few of the levels (especially pseudo snake), which made it very hard and frustrating to get a large amount of coins. Also, the jumping mechanic may need a little work. I found myself sometimes able to control the height of my jump to avoid low objects while other time, I could not. Also, jumps from underneath a block is a pain sometimes because I just hit my head and fall.

Still, I like the game and the coin collecting aspect. I wanted to turn everything in the level into coins.

Once upon a day there was a me.
When I finished a level before "High Leap Act", the game won't let me enter that level. I could enter any level, but not that specific one, and if I wanted to press the back button from the level select, it would fade out and fade in... to the level select.

Then somehow I fixed it and could continue the game.

This game is fun to play, but there is a major problem; the game won't save itself. So every time I reload the game, I have to start over from square 1.
