1  General Boards / Maps Of The Month / Re: 2017/06: Jill Of The Jungle (PC) - Will Mallia on: June 01, 2017, 02:55:19 AM
The weird thing about the first episode is that some levels mix together, meaning you can see parts of level 7 in 1 and vice versa for example. My favourite of all episodes is the second one, due to it's weird and vast levels. That game was remixed into a strange Christian-themed game called Onesimus. You may have heard of the game "Vinyl Goddess from Mars". While it probably meant to be a sequel to Jill of the Jungle, it doesn't have the feel of an Epic game, it's more of a fast paced arcade Amiga game. Xargon was also a great classic. Would have been nice if Jill of the Jungle were remade to have the same detail and feel of Xargon. It was a thrill to map all three episodes of Jill, the most difficult to map was the jungle overworld in the third episode. It's nice to know that Jill is loved today as she was then. Her title was even give homage in Epic Pinball as well as a cameo in Jazz Jackrabbit. Recently Jill has appeared in a simple iOS game called "Jungle Pang".

I think that's up to you. I never really considered Tetris maps to be priority any more than the maps of straightforward stages that you can't get lost in such as the 6th Stage (A whole new world) in SNES Aladdin.

Well for other maps there are special tetris screens which require you to eliminate all objects (acorns/flames/electrical bolts) using a limited number of tetris pieces. Talk to Chip 'n' Dale or go to the Fire Station or Power Station to enter that sort of game mode. There are over 100 of those screens and they get extremely hard to solve at the harder difficulties. If the solution could be displayed on the screen, I suppose they would be helpful and worth adding.

I have just submitted a map of "Magical Tetris Challenge". The GBC version has an overworld map. This is a Disney Capcom game, so I think it's fit to be a part of the  Disney Dizziness chapter.

My favourite of Kirby's powers was the Beam Ability, which I used most of the time to access secrets and protect Kirby from foes. The Rainbow Resort wasn't what I expected in a video game like this, because I felt the stages of the last level were straightforward, not creative enough and not difficult enough to be a penultimate level. The numerous bonus games certainly gave variety in Kirby's Adventure. Full-time work and putting the mapping project aside, certainly did get this game mapped longer than it could have been, but in the end, I'm happy for this game to be chosen for this Christmas month.

I've noticed something recently. The collection only covers 22 world released NES games plus 8 exclusively released for North America. There are eight more, released exclusively for Japan. This includes:

*Atlantis no Nazo
*Downtown Nekketsu Kōshinkyoku: Soreyuke Daiundōkai
*Final Fantasy III
*NES Open Tournament Golf
*Downtown Nekketsu Monogatari
*Solomon's Key
*Tsuppari Ōzumō
*Yie Ar Kung-Fu

Do these count?

The whole of Kirby's Adventure maps is at long last completed. If any secrets have been missed, I'm all ears.

There is a Japanese game released on DOS and PC-98 called "Rusty". It's not a Castlevania game, but it has a close likeness to one.

Well I wouldn't call the issues completely technical, but I moved to Windows 7 a while ago. I am having trouble with trying to retain the true colours of the screenshots I take. Whenever colours from a 256 colour bmp are copied and pasted, they change. The only way to retain the colours is for the file to be saved as a 24 bit bmp. This process is very tedious. It would be better if I had an NES emulator that saved screenshots as PNGs. If you have an idea of how I can get around this problem, let me know.

I have finished doing "Punch out!!". I'll have a go at Pac-Man next.

EDIT: And now Pac-Man is done.

The first Warcraft game I was brought up with was Reign of Chaos. My favourite scenarios in most strategy games are the Adventure Scenarios which consist of a limited number of units and no structures, resources or peasants/peons to replenish your army. They are quite challenging but worth winning. My ideal strategy to keeping the enemy at bay was have a line of five footmen/grunts at the front of a bridge or small gap with five archers/spearmen right behind them (with three to five catapults behind them if available). It's a pity that Warcraft Adventures was never released commercially, it seemed like one of the best adventure games for it's time next to the Curse of Monkey Island. I'm quite excited to see the upcoming movie which judging by the trailer looks like the first three games together in one plot. It was a pleasure mapping all 24 scenarios of the first game and serves as a memorable reminder of Warcraft's beginnings.

You could try the site "Legends World", which specialises in both action and adventure.

You can continue mapping Final Fantasy III if you really want to. I only did these few maps as samples.

Rumor has it that the name Tanzra is an anagram and substitution of the name Satan. Simply rearrange the name Satan to Tansa then substitute the 'S' for a 'Z' and add an 'R'. It would be nice to have the Japanese stage maps as well. They are noticeably different in layout, and have slightly differently designed enemies. Good one Rick!

If limitations become too much, perhaps you should divide the Super NES section into two indexes; "Super Famicom" (containing Japanese only releases) and "SNES" (containing US and EU releases). You can also divide the PC index into a "Windows" index and a "DOS" index.
