For Extra Life this year I am having all of our stream guests play their favorite game whether it was something they loved as a child, something that ate days of their time, or something they just thought was weird and played a bunch. What I haven't told them is I am creating some simple Mario Maker levels for them to play as an "intro" to their appearance on the stream. Each level is designed to recreate either the memorable moments or basic gameplay of their game (or at the very least evoke the feeling of each). So far I've had no trouble coming up with ways to represent each game. A couple of examples include:
Metal Gear Solid: B941-0000-007E-3B77
NBA Jam: A061-0000-007E-38A0
The problem now is there are a few games that I don't really know how to translate into a Mario level. Given the creativity of the GB community during Dan's make-a-level shows, I thought I might turn to my fellow duders for some ideas. Here is the list of games I currently need to build levels for:
- Ogre Battle (SNES)
- Phantom 2040 (SNES)
- I Am Bread
- Batman Forever (SNES)
A few things to consider for the design of each level:
- These are intro pieces for each guest on our stream, so they should be relatively short.
- This is a surprise for everyone, so the level should be easy, almost idiot-proof.
- It is more important that the level share the feel/gameplay of the game instead of being a "good" Mario level.
Any help would be greatly appreciated. I'm super curious as to what folks come up with.
