Main Course: The quest for King Bobombs Crown (by Marc)
I’m not a huge fan of “gimmick” stages, and by that I mean, when a creator focuses most of their level around one mechanic. But I must say, this Main Course has really opened my eyes to these kinds of stages. The quest for King Bobombs Crown is proof that if you build around a gimmick, good things can come from it. And to find out just how Marc was able to accomplish this, let’s skip the appetizers, and dig right into the Main Course!
The stage itself has you spin-jumping off of the King Bobomb’s crown. You will have to get through multiple areas like this, clearing a path for the King as you go. I really like this aspect of the stage, since you’re not just stuck spin-jumping the whole time. It requires you to pay attention and really adds to this already challenging course.
King Bobomb’s Crown
Once you’ve conquered the actual stage, you’ll be able to claim what you set out for. Yep, King Bobomb’s crown is yours at last! This is definitely my favorite part of the stage. It’s really only there for the story element, but that’s awesome! Sticking to your theme (and doing it well) really makes playing the level a lot more fun. This little area is the perfect example of building around a gimmick. So if there’s one thing to take away from this Main Course, It’s that with every great idea should come an equally great stage to go along with it. And Marc has done a great job showing us just how possible that is.
