Kid Icarus: Downsizing 2 by jmatchead Kid Icarus: Downsizing 2 by jmatchead
Well, oddly enough my previous Kid Icarus mockup made the internet rounds not long ago. Alot of people seemed to think that I had ditched the side scrolling aspect altogether, but not so. I figured the on foot sections from Uprising would basically play like expanded versions of the platforming stages of the original, what with dash attacks and a much larger play field.

Done for my blog:

This is awesome. I feel like I should go out and figure out how to make video games just so I can make this a reality.

Was this the original mock-up for Super Kid Icarus? [link]

You guys should make another mode in Super Kid Icarus that is like this. It would be pretty sweet! Not that Super Kid Icarus isn't already great!

Really? Not sure that I see what you mean. What part of Cave Story does it remind you of?

BTW, I'm not trying to be defensive. Just curious:)

Excellent mockups. It's a lot of fun to see games like this redone with old graphical limitations (ant turn out gorgeous)!

It was cool to see your original mock-up appear on GoNintendo! Uprising was a great game, but this has kind of been what I always wanted in a Kid Icarus sequel: a "super" version of the original.

I was pretty shocked to see it there, honestly! A million thanks to Badassbill for that!

There are a handful of NES and FDS games that I wish had made the jump to 16-bit, but Kid Icarus is definitely the one I would have wanted most.
