So, if you've been on IRC recentally you may have seen me with the word "Mansion" as part of my nick, and the most I told anyone at any time (besides certan people) is that it's a project name, after whiping up some code as seen here I began adding things, like doors, and a gun, and enemies... Then I thought to myself, "well, since this will be a platformer, I need good test maps" so I dug up the original 4 test maps for Metroid I noticed that this was pretty fun, I added in a morph ball like ability, and all of a sudden I had Metroid, on the homescreen. At first I decided NOT to do this game, because last time I did, it took 5 months and countless hours of work, and I'm still not done with it...

But then Kévin Ouellet started to work on Metroid II as a sort of sequel to mine (totally better though) and I didn't want to enfringe upon his territory. So I just idled by and let him do his thing, but just to have fun I showed him this and he got all excited, so I went with it, and kept adding maps (and in cases a few more rooms) originaly (and loosely) based off of this it's a direct port of Metroid BASIC 83+ to the homescreen, only now I have 20k to do it in, and maps will take up about 9k of that, leaving me 11k for gameplay (4k of the ram is going to be used for ingame data). There are 2 screenshots of this game as seen here and here.

The bosses in the game will all be the same ones as in the original Metroid BASIC, Kraid will change from the 64px tall behometh to a 2 character tall thing, though he did seem to gain a new power. The varia suit after Boss 2 is gone, and missles (needed to kill Mother Brain) take it's place, you can jump forever in lava, but it will always hurt you, there are 2 more health pickups in the game (for a max health of 399 when going up against Mother Brain) the room for the 2nd boss no longer has rising and falling lava, thus making it easier. The ship is the only thing that recharges health (besides health packs) and after you beat Mother Brain, instead of the game ending with an explosion, you have to escape before a timer runs out.

So, what now? Well... I have to do all the boss battles, code in the gaining of the morph ball, code in the gaining of the health packs, and the rest of the maps, and then some little extra things if I have space.

ah, sorry, I forgot to post this here... Due to a VERY VERY major issue, namely my calc tanking, I am no longer programming, thusly this game will not be finished (well, it was finished, then my calc tanked)
