The prototype for this thing was created on a weekend for Modfest XVIII. And it won!
p376639-0-anu5is8.png

Each level is 118x118 map with procedurally tile layout, hazards, enemies and treasures. Each time you die, you start over from depth 1.

You can encounter life capsules, chests, refill stations as help.

To progress to next stage, collect 10 stars, randomly generated on each level.

Seeds are available, create a file called `seed.txt` in mod's folder and fill it with up to 9 letters or number lower than 4 billion (2^32).

The mod's zip has readme for more information.

Very interesting idea! This must have been very hard to make, so I am very impressed.
That being said, the maps are way too big, and you start with way too little health, so as it stands, it is too long and hard to actually be fun to play. This is something easily remedied, though.
Using the polar star and nemesis to make and destroy blocks was quite fun indeed, but the ammo seems really limited, even with the replenishing mechanisms. I think it would be more fun if both these guns had unlimited ammo. And if we also started out with more conventional weapons to fend off enemies with.
The polar star's block placement can be a little bit unpredictable sometimes.
Also, does the green weapon really do nothing, or have I not figured out how to use it?

Green weapon only tells you how many levels in a row you have beaten.

That being said, the maps are way too big, and you start with way too little health, so as it stands, it is too long and hard to actually be fun to play.

I'd like to know the differences between each character.
Think you could give me a run-down?


A character comparison chart, for those of you who are curious:
QUOTE (no seed): 6 HP, Polar Star, Nemesis, Fireball
Quote, being the default character, has nothing special going for him; he's just... there.

CURLY BRACE (CurlyBrac): 9 HP, Polar Star, Nemesis, Machine Gun
Curly moves slower, but she has a higher HP cap, she gets 4 HP from Life Capsules, her invincibility frames last longer, and she gets regeneration from the Iron Bond item (I've also noticed that she jumps a block higher than Quote). In other words: she's Quote, but better.

KING (KingTable): 6 HP, Polar Star, Nemesis, Blade
King runs faster and jumps higher, but takes 50% more damage. He can also Blade Dash using the Ability key (this, of course, requires you to have the Blade selected).

TOROKO (FluffMimi): 3 HP, Polar Star, Nemesis (no tertiary weapon)
Toroko can survive lethal damage once per stage. She also has greater overall mobility, being able to dash, double jump, and wall jump right from the get-go. However, she only gets 2 HP from Life Capsules.

MISERY (Raymundo): 12 HP, Invidia [Spur-Nemesis hybrid] (no Polar Star or tertiary weapon)
Misery is what I'd like to call "God Mode Incarnate"; she has the highest starting health of all characters, her starting weapon is OP as balls, and she has INFINITE JUMP HEIGHT (that is, she'll keep ascending endlessly for as long as you hold the Jump key). The only downside is that she lacks a Polar Star, and thus, the ability to create blocks.

Curly is slower, but her HP limit is 113 instead of 63, she gets 4 hp from capsules, has bigger iframes and regeneration with iron bond.

King takes 50% more damage but can dash with Ability key and Blade held. His blade is also pretty poggers and he is fastest character.

Toroko has wall jump, double jump and dash by default. But she gets 2 hp from life capsules. And she can refuse to die once per stage.

Misery can jump infinitely high or hover when jump height was stopped at some point, she has modified spur that destroys blocks and spawns lightnings.

Thank you, Bobylev, for ensuring I don't make a fool of myself.
Otherwise, I'd have to have spent hours upon hours testing out each individual character, and with how badly I suck at taking notes, I'd never be finished.
I'd really appreciate if you could add this information to the ReadMe in the next update, if not for me, then for everyone else.

Also, this is unironically more fun to play than the original Cave Story.
Also-also, are there any interesting, non-character-related seeds I should know about?

Giving this another shot, and taking notes:
(sorry if this comes across as too critical/nitpicking, but you're naturally more likely to write about minor annoyances and take all the good stuff for granted, that's human nature, ykwim)
1. i like how you're indicating all of this stuff on the map... but you know what else would be cool if it were indicated on the map? presses, that's what! (half-joking here but yeah)
1.5. the colors for health refills and treasure chests could be differentiated a bit more, i feel
2. randomly coming across chests and finding an interesting gadget with a cool name and an unexpectedly cool+unique+creative+useful ability is already giving me a month's worth of serotonin tysm
3. how does the program load up so fast?? it's like, the opposite of frustrating, not sure what the word for that is
4. "water thursters" that's a typo, right?
5. when equipping the gravity necklace from the inventory, it says 'equipped cool sunglasses'. also, i really like the concept, this thing is cool. (you could add a vvvvvv style character that starts out with this ability maybe?)
6. i like all the little statue/emblem-like things that personalize each level/tileset
7. oh wow this rocket launcher is cool!
8. is it just me, or are enemies not dropping missile ammo? health refills don't replenish it either. oh it's not even leveling up, i guess it's solely for transport and not meant as a weapon
9. these butes have some crazy homing arrows, man.
10. this may be unavoidable, but i feel like the screen movements get a little bit... giddy? with the momentum throttler equipped. hmm, actually never mind, you get used to it
11. it might be cool if there was a greater chance of getting a water-heavy level if you have oxygen tank+water thrusters, what do you think?
12. this is not a complaint about the difficulty, but i think it'd definitely be a lot more convenient if savepoints were more frequent, ya know?
13. at one point i found an empty chest. not sure if intentional but it kinda creeped me out, i thought i was the only one here!
14. i love Little Man
15. this is rather rare but once an enemy was right on top of a save point, which makes you take damage as soon as you load. tho i guess it did add to the spice of the game, haha
16. the oxygen tank doesn't work in the red water and you have only 48 air, i assume this is intentional?
17. giving the little man an air tank bubble was a nice detail
18. phew, the presses aren't instakill, but reasonably punishing. neat.
19. these buyobuyo bases have crazy boss-level health what's up with that?
20. the circular white flash around the player when boosting/double-jumping/reversing gravity is a little bit distracting, do you think it makes sense to make it smaller/a bit less conspicuous?
21. given the 'trade-off' nature of the turbocharge, it would be nice if we had the option to equip/dequip it. (also, i can't exactly test this, but i hope there's some logic that makes the turbocharge gettable only if you have the machine gun already)
22. this, uh, doesn't look quite right, the way they're hanging from the water surface
23. "percepti of time"? you might want to move "perception" to a new line
24. when you die in the doctor fight and want to retry, why does it throw you back to depth 01 instead of reloading your last save?
25. wait, did you just delete the savedata? hey that's underhanded and frustrating, i almost don't feel like playing this again. i actually wished there would be a save point at the beginning of the king's table, but seriously? not sure if this is a bug, but if it's intentional, it's left sort of a bad taste in my mouth, sorry
tldr: It's a lot more fun to play now! I personally am not a fan of replaying games, but logically speaking I think this does have a lot of replay value. Randomized rewards feel very nice, and level 'design' is pretty interesting and fun. That said, the ending bit could be improved.
Thanks for making this!

Edit: Okay, I admit I don't know much about roguelikes. If that's how it's supposed to be, cool then. Sorry if I sounded harsh.

red water is actually lava, read description of air tank.

5. when equipping the gravity necklace from the inventory, it says 'equipped cool sunglasses'.
That's a bug fixed in 1.21.

19. these buyobuyo bases have crazy boss-level health what's up with that?
stationary targets, so it kinda resists spam from some more powerful weapons.

8. is it just me, or are enemies not dropping missile ammo? health refills don't replenish it either. oh it's not even leveling up, i guess it's solely for transport and not meant as a weapon
exactly, but refills do replenish it

at one point i found an empty chest. not sure if intentional but it kinda creeped me out, i thought i was the only one here!
I am still not sure, why it happens

24. when you die in the doctor fight and want to retry, why does it throw you back to depth 01 instead of reloading your last save?
25. wait, did you just delete the savedata? hey that's underhanded and frustrating, i almost don't feel like playing this again. i actually wished there would be a save point at the beginning of the king's table, but seriously? not sure if this is a bug, but if it's intentional, it's left sort of a bad taste in my mouth, sorry
It's a rogueli(k/t)e, you die, you start over, and you have procedural depths.

alright an actual review
Really fun, reminds me of Spelunky because of how the enemies themselves are somewhat easy but the game is still hard as nails because healing is scarce.
This time, however, it's much less extreme. The star mechanic is a bit annoying, but it is a good idea from a design perspective.
Of course, Toroko was really fun. The wall jumping was a bit weird, but still. I noticed that she always has the "about to die" particles after taking a fatal hit, even if she's at full health. This is resolved after
entering a new level but getting to the next level takes quite a bit of time.

You should add more enemy variety and nerf the Core, Arcadia, and Outer Wall levels. I'm honestly starting to get tired of this game.

I was really surprised by how fun and engaging this mod was. First off, the music was really good. Most of it I didn't recognize as being remixes of existing songs, but one song I did recognize from Donkey Kong. The mechanics with the Polar Star and Nemesis were really cool, and easy to adapt to. I'm really impressed with the algorithm you've come up with for randomly generating levels, and mixing things around with the different tilesets, music, and increasing difficulty. Each level followed the same formula of collecting stars and items until you're ready to move to the next room, but each level felt like a fresh experience. You used a lot of existing assets, while also creating new visuals and enemies in a way that still has a similar look and feel to the existing assets but still feels like something new.

The mechanics for progressing to different levels through doors with the occasional boss fight was really cool. I also loved the progression of gaining more items and life capsules as time went on. The routine of looking at the map at the beginning and strategizing where to go first and where to go next was very fun. The missile launcher had a really cool new utility in this mod. I didn't use it a ton, but it did have its moments of usefulness, and when those moments came, using the missile launcher to traverse long distances across the map or way up high was extremely satisfying.

It was cool how you slowly gain more items over the course of the game, but the items themselves are hit or miss. Some of them are really useful, such as the quasi-booster. Others, such as the pair of wings, didn't really seem to help much. That was pretty cool how at the end you get to the Doctor, and he informs you about how he's been manipulating reality to cause these randomly generated levels.

On one hand, I can understand you trying to change things up from the vanilla Doctor battle, but on the other hand, that boss fight was just way too hard for me. He had way too much health, and and his attacks were way too crazy. I'm a little bit confused on the saving system. Why have those blue save points if you're still going to start back at depth 01 whenever you die?

I've noticed that the spur behaves a bit differently in this game. I was able to kill this buyo buyo base below me by shooting down into those blocks, and it would go through them. Is this on purpose?
CSModRandamu-01.png

I made it to the Doctor fight, but then I died. Even if I could load to back at the Doctor fight, I probably wouldn't have much interest in continuing and trying to beat the Doctor, because I just don't feel like it's a very well-balanced boss fight. It kind of reminds me of some of the boss battles from earlier versions of Jenka's Nightmare Revived, where the final few bosses had an insane amount of HP, and it took forever to take them down. The idea was for the bosses to seem "epic and powerful," but it really was just lazy game design.

Here were a few other things that stuck out to me as bugs or needing change:
The health refill stations only tell me that my health has been refilled. Since it refills my ammo too, it might be more descriptive for it to say "Health and ammo refilled".

None of the doors leading to the next room have opening animations when you open them.

When I got to depth 08, and I was in hell, and it was doing the shaky effect with the ominous music, the music didn't loop.

Using the Creation Energizer wasn't too intuitive for me.

The text is cut off here with the Doctor:
CSModRandamu-02.png

Overall, this is a really well-made and polished mod. Did it really just take you a weekend to make this mod? Were most of the ORGs used in this mod pre-existing or something?

The initial version took a weekend or so, and I polished the thing from December 30 to this day (so over 20 days of 4-8 hours of coding).

Why have those blue save points if you're still going to start back at depth 01 whenever you die?
Those are for saving your progress so you don't have to beat the run in one sitting.
When I got to depth 08, and I was in hell, and it was doing the shaky effect with the ominous music, the music didn't loop.
Fixed indev.
The text is cut off here with the Doctor:
Noted.
Were most of the ORGs used in this mod pre-existing or something?
Yes, I used archive of over 2000 ORGs compiled by CSMC members.
He had way too much health, and and his attacks were way too crazy.
The fight is balanced with how much items you have in inventory, like mobility accessories and damage enhancers. I can always nerf it, of course.
was able to kill this buyo buyo base below me by shooting down into those blocks, and it would go through them. Is this on purpose?
This is a consequence of implementing block-breaking spur for Misery, I'll fix that.
Others, such as the pair of wings, didn't really seem to help much.
Sorta true, some items require a build or strategy to use.
None of the doors leading to the next room have opening animations when you open them.
I will look what I can do, I am not very good at TSC so it's possible than I messed up.

Thanks for kind review! The Doctor thing was kind of afterthought as people wanted run culmination mechanic, so it's cheap. I am glad than you liked the gameplay loop.
