This is a complete, fully playable, Mario-only game made with SMBX. It features:

- Simple, non-confusing hub area
- 25 unique (and awesome) stages with 3 stars each
- Epic non-linear gameplay
- Optional final boss if you manage to collect every star
- Ice Flower!
- A decent amount of graphical customization, considering this is my first game
- and other things!

Version 1.1 finally released!

Subcon Stars version 1.1

Version 1.1 has been completed. The most significant change is that there is now a checkpoint in almost every level. Many enemies have also been removed from some unfairly difficult areas.

I like this description! Its like a rebuttal to Super RMN Bros. :)

Anywho, judging by the screens this looks decent. Subbed.
Super RMN Bros 1 had a difficult to understand hub level.

I greatly dislike this description.

It always bugs me when a game's ~feature list~ sounds like it's described as a better-than-thou game - "features a custom battle system!" and whatnot. Nobody who is not a developer (i.e. actual players) does not give a fuck. It should be an expectation that the hub isn't confusing, not a feature!

I fixed the apache server so that 7-zip downloads work. Downloading now.

EDIT:
and the features listed here all seem gameplay related. I don't know what your beef is with this particular list.

- Simple, non-confusing hub area this should be expected in a Good Game
- 25 unique (and awesome) stages with 3 stars each unnecessary modifiers
- Epic non-linear gameplay
- Optional final boss if you manage to collect every star
- Ice Flower! ...who cares? Maybe Mario nerds? I guess that's okay
- A decent amount of graphical customization considering this is my first game nobody gives a fuck, shut up; let your images speak to whether or not it's decent. Also, I don't care if it's your first or third or twenty-second, if it's a good game it will speak for itself and if it's not a good game don't upload it
- and other things! this is utterly useless

Go make an article about not making games presentations sound pretentious and retarded.

okay, maybe the tongue-in-cheek delivery was a little to subtle

- Simple, non-confusing hub area versus an intricate and detailed hub world, or versus an overworld map. This is relevant info!
- 25 unique (and awesome) stages with 3 stars each other than the tongue-in-cheek awesome, its good to know there are 25 different levels with 3 stars each! tells you about the level setups and the expected gameplay
- Epic non-linear gameplay
- Optional final boss if you manage to collect every star
- Ice Flower! ooo new powerup not available in SMW or SMB3! also, only developers who have used SMBX recently would know about this new powerup, so to regular players of the old NES/SNES this is pretty cool
- A decent amount of graphical customization considering this is my first game despite the awkward wording, tells me he made some custom graphics (which people seem to care about for some reason)*
- and other things! humour! lol!

EDIT:
*so I don't fault him for appealing to that and highlighting that (the use of custom graphics, I mean)
Kentona gets it. But I apologize if this tiny block of descriptive text offends anyone. I should also warn you that there is more text in-game to provide tips for inexperienced SMBX players. If you are easily enraged by the occasional small box of text, please avoid this game.
Sub* Loving the looks on these here levels.

It's called "selling your game" whether it's done well here or not. Sometimes people aren't even going to get past the description (as said, for lack of caring) before they forget about it.
Wow an entire game page paralyzed because of a small little description.

Anyway.

I'm playing this right now, I'll let you know what I think when I'm done.
Thanks for playing everyone. Hope you enjoy the game.
Congrats! This will be my FIRST Let's Play!

I see you've already found it, but I posted the link for anyone else who wanted to see this. The quality in the first two videos is bad, but it's in High Definition from the third video on!

The key was in the same room as the locked door. You go all the way to the right and climb the zig zag platforms. At the top there's coins leading to a ghost block, which isn't actually just a block. It's a question block with a key in it! :O
Yay, 60 downloads. I hope people are enjoying the game to some degree. I want to get feedback before I continue working on my next game: Luigi in Dimension Castle. It's another star-collecting game. In the meantime I'm working on Super Princess Dreamland, which is a very SMB2 kind of game. The more feedback I get, the better these games will be.
Thanks for playing.

Luigi in Dimension Castle sounds so awesome it's not even funny.
