Thanks for your input Sumez. For now I have commented out the wall traversal, might make it back in if the gameplay is too flat without it.

Thanks freem, I actually used the MM animation as a study source. :)

Update:

* Damping is working with horizontal movement.
* Changed balloons into crystals since it seemed right.

Next up:

* Integrate famitone and create sfx for crystal captures and crystal breaks.
* Implement logic for gathering crystals (like coins in SMB1).
* Implement logic for breaking crystals (happens when Debs dashes through them). Breaking crystals resets Debs dash ability thus allowing for multiples dashes while in the air.

You can see the new movement on my twitter page: https://twitter.com/cacciatc/status/806662957195067393

Animated GIFs can be found on my twitter: https://twitter.com/cacciatc/status/810313593967124480

Up next:

* Implement sprite0 HUD.
* Fix a mess of bugs discovered with the level change.
* Add crystal shatter animations.
* Add crystal collect animations?
* Implement death.
* Implement hurt animation and logic.

My goal for the end of December is to have two working levels, then another two in Jan for a total of 4 levels for the final NES 2016 submission.

It's simply gorgeous. The dashing turned out really smooth, and the title screen lettering is solid. I especially love the warm emphasis usage on the pause screen.

Really nice! Also Kulor's soundtrack is rad. (I really love the "ending" tune.)

I notice the bottom row of attributes seems to get corrupted frequently. I tried to jump down onto one of these. :S

Am I supposed to die if I jump up here? Or is this an unintentional wrap-around causing me to fall down the pit at the bottom?

Another very nice entry! I did run into a few problems while dashing, though...

Dashing in the air once sent me behind the clouds and the collision map no longer matched what was being displayed on the screen. I couldn't replicate this in the air, but dashing against this wall or against the edge of the screen a few times does eventually make me land on the opposite side of the screen, and the collision map is wrong.

Dashing against the wall:

Thanks M_Tee :) I am a fan of the pause screen too.

Aye, Kulor did a great job.

Interesting, I hadn't noticed that behavior. Thanks for the report. I will check it out.

Bummer, a regression it would appear :) I've fixed that bug a couple times now!

Thanks for the reports. Thought the wrap around bug had been fixed. :)

This is a very solid and enjoyable entry! Music is fitting and great, too.

Maybe it's just me not mastering the height of the jump yet , but i keep bumping into this platform repeatedly, everytime in the beginning of level two, and kind of wish it was something like the edit to the right in this pic. A very minor issue in a great platforming experience.

Something caused the screen to go gray in fceux (2.2.2) when paused on my first play, but i cannot replicate it.

Thanks for the input. Yeah, that beginning section can be annoying. Also will keep an eye out for the gray screen.

rainwarrior what emu were you running when you noticed the attr glitches on the bottom row? I haven't been able to reproduce on FCEUX 2.2.3; however, on my Powerpak I do get weirdness-- sometimes attributes are wrong, other times the background tiles, and other times sprites. I was under the impression that my Powerpak was being wonky though. Will need to investigate.

I was using FCEUX 2.2.3 (+ a few more recent additions, I build from source, but it's basically 2.2.3), though it might be important that I use New PPU mode.

I don't seem to see the attribute problems on the first stage, but they seem to occur frequently in the second stage. I also notice in the second stage "bumps" in the vertical scrolling now and then, almost like the scrolling is set too late, might be related to the same problem?

Problem seems to occur in Nintendulator too (the vertical shake + the attribute corruption, specifically in stage 2).

I've noticed another problem. This has happened to me a few times in the first stage, if I take the "lower" path and get the extra dash token, there's a high probability that I get killed by an invisible enemy in one particular spot.

Attached is a short FCEUX movie file demonstrating the problem, around about frame 1800 (~30 seconds) I seem to hit an invisible enemy in the air?

This is a picture of the spot just before it happens:
