Reaching a new destination

Hello everyone! Its been a while since I posted a progress report on this game. However, I've been working on this game daily and keeping things secret so I wouldn't spoil the whole game. I remember a time where I posted so many screens, its almost like you've already played the game. That is something that I see now as unwise and sort of overdone.

Anyway, I would like to give an update on whats been going on behind the scenes. First of all, I would like to announce that 90% of stages are finished!! There are so many stages in this game now. Stages are divided into several categories such as story stages,main stages,extra stages,special stages, and abandoned stages. When you play the game you'll see a bunch of new ones as well as ones from previous demos that have been abandoned, but not forgotten. Here is a screenshot of Silent Woods. This is where Bai lives.


Second, there has been several new concepts introduced to the game. Some including
  • Experience Crystals

  • Fighting game styled health bars

  • Monster-Transformation Power ups

  • Over 30 Power Ups as of now

  • Remade and replaced stages

  • New Characters from Monster World's various games

  • Cameo characters from obscure games similar to Monster World


However, monsters have been the main setback of this game.There are over 50+ monsters including custom-made ones as well. Its almost like programming over 50+ characters(which can be time-consuming). New monsters include..
  • Bumble Bee

  • Blue Jelly

  • Green Jelly

  • Lamia

  • Cactus

  • Flame Cactus

  • Rolling Egg

  • Frog

  • Moth

  • Slug

  • Living Sword

  • Lady Bug


  • New Storyline

I reviewed the storyline of the previous demo and realized, it needs lots of work in both information and text. This time, there has been a lot added to the main story revolving around our main characters, Princess Purapril, The Darkworld Prince, and Shion. However, an event occurs that pulls in other characters from Monster World's time periods and even sucks in characters from other worlds as well(hidden characters). I'm not going to go into it much, but I'm working on it.

  • New Music

Apart from the main development list is a bunch of new songs I found from games I've discovered from the past few months. Every time I hear a new song, I get inspiration for a new level. Several of them include..
  • Band Land from Rayman

  • Sea Bottom Segue from Sonic Lost World

  • Woods Level from Mickey Mouse:Castle of Illusion

  • Sugar Lane from Sonic Lost World

  • Battle to the death from Final Fantasy VI

  • Ring Rink from Ristar the Shooting Star


There is still much to be done with this game though. I thought that after all these years, I would be done, but the development keeps growing and I'm learning a lot about this engine. This game WILL be done this year though, that much I can promise. Good to be back on the right direction with this game and thank you all who are sticking with me.

I've been pining for a sidescrolling RPG for some time!
I'm glad to hear that:) I hope you will like it when the first demo is released.
Oh this looks neat! I'm an old fan of side scrollin'! Been playing the damn things back in 86'! I made a short shooter using Game Maker but I wasn't too good at programming.
Wow, these are some sexy graphics. Are they completely custom or are they ripped from something?
I don't know about all of the graphics, but I can see there are several rips from the Wonder Boy in Monster Land games.
Some of the Sprites are ripped. But, I am constantly working on editing them to become original. For example, the palm trees in Seaside Coast are edited. They used to be fat, but I made them skinny to get a classic look to them.
This looks all kinds of badass.

Have you tried pressing Enter? I'll download it and see what you mean......*downloading*..... It works fine.
This looks really interesting, I'm gonna try this out and hand you my thoughts.

Great!! I look forward to it.
I've seen Game Maker games with gamepad support. Is that possible for you to do? I haven't played an action game on the keyboard in years.
Hmm.. I've never thought about it. But, I will look into that for people who don't want to use a keyboard. I'll take that into consideration. Good thinking!
This game looks interesting. I wonder why I wasn't subbed to it already? ...Well, I just fixed that. =P

I'll give the demo a go whenever I have some free extra time...
Dude this game feels really awkward. Do you use hitbox detection at all? It's hard to tell if your sword's going to hit in relation to the enemy and it feels all too fast. Idk if you compare your game to like any action platformer like maybe castlevania there's a mechanical instance that feels "right." It sucks because it's really hard to discuss controls and pinpoint what's wrong with this game. Keep in mind I'm talking about the fundamentals here...

I think the main problem is the sword speed feels too fast, like it's just one frame that appears for a split second. In any action game there's usually a delay during or before the attack to give it the right feel. It's really hard to explain. Plus the jumping sword attack feels really finnicky, I cannot tell how far its range is because you're just spinning a sprite without actually showing the slash. I'm glad that theres an action game on here that isn't in frackin rpg maker but you really should look at the difference between say... idk megaman zero's sword slashes to lydia's

Hitbox detection is in the plan, I just haven't added it yet.This is just the early demo. I haven't updated it in about a month or two. Changes are being made daily in fact.

I agree that Game Maker needs to have more games on this site, and some action games made in RPG maker are'nt so good. I used game maker because of it's easy to use interface and simple design.

Everything you've mentioned is already fixed in the version I'm working on.
Believe me, I notice most of the flaws before people even notice them. I plan out everything on paper, so I know what to add, remove, and consider.

I fear I could not get very far because of "key jamming" issues. For example, I'm holding three keys at the same time (The space bar to jump, the left arrow button to go left, and the up button to enable high-jump), and the computer only recognizes two button presses ("go left" and "jump"). Well, I figure that I need to be able to high-jump to get to the next platform, anyway, because normal jumping obviously ain't getting me there!

In no way am I blaming you, or the game, for this, but how possible is it to set up customizable controls?

I was considering that:) You're playing the beta demo, which has several flaws. I will update this game soon with fixed gameplay and animations.

Actually, at the risk of any tutorials, you really need to add customizable controls. It's just the smart thing to do.

Well, the only change to the help file that I would see if that it would reference the keys it mentions as the default ones, and, oh, by the way, this is how you change the controls. Or, setting up custom controls would be a main menu option and probably be self-explanatory.
