NEWEST VERSION: 0.4.4

This is supposed to be the last release of Version 0.4, if no fatal bugs reported, I will continue to develop on Version 0.5. 

 

Introduction

Mario Forever: An Unprecedented Expedition (abbr MF: AUE or sometimes MFUE) is a fan game of Super Mario and Mario Forever. 
Princess Peach was disappeared one day, and Mario thought it was done by Bowser, so he started the expedition to defeat Bowser...
This game was developed on Clickteam Fusion 2.5+ with Rainbow Engine by lyh. The current version (0.4.0) contains first 4 worlds with over 40 levels.
Development of the game starts from 2015, and due to some personal reasons, it was suspended for years, and now I finally came up with this half-finished version. Thank you all who cares about the project and waited for years, now it's time for enjoy!

 

Control

(The key of controls below can be set manually)
Arrows: Move
Z: Jump, enter a level in map
X: Fire, Use items in map
(PAY ATTENTION: These control CANNOT be customized)
Escape: Retry the level(cost 1 life), or quit the mini game
P: Pause the game
Enter: Resume the game while paused (which may be different from many other MF fangames)

 

Gameplay

Here are some elements of the game.

  • Scoring: This game has a set of scoring different from original MF. The score of each level are independent, and the final game score are related to best score of each level. By the way, in next version there will be an online scoreboard, so try to get higher score :)
  • Star coins: Most levels have 1~3 star coins, and some levels require getting adequate star coins to unlock.
  • Coins: Coin is currency of the game. Besides the classic "100 coins for extra life", coins you get in levels can be accumulated and buy the goodies in shop. Getting more score will also get you more coin bonus.
  • World map: you can select levels in world map. Besides, there will be extra content like shops, bonus rooms and minigames.
  • Inventory: Items get in bonus rooms and shops will be stored and you can use them in world map.

 

About Save Files

The game will be automatically saved when enter a level or pass a level.

  • Do not play the game in zipped file or the progress be saved normally! Please unzip it first!
  • Do not play the game while the save file is opened or the file cannot be loaded normally.
  • Do not edit the save file, or all the progress will be lost.
  • If your save file does not work(e.g. all the progress are lost after load a save slot), contact the author.

 

About cheating

The following behaviors are strictly forbidden, doing these might cause progress loss or other bad influence:

  • hack the save file,

Doing these will influence the fairness of the game. Unnatural records uploaded to scoreboard will be deleted.

Q&A Box

Q: So what's the meaning of the game title?
A: Well, the title is related to the story of the game. "Expedition" refers to the story of traveling to different islands. "Unprecedented" may not be reflected in current version, as the storyboard of first 4 worlds is just simply "traveling to next island". But from World 5 on, this will be different and... well I'd better keep it secret :P

Q: Why does the development of this game takes this long?
A: Mainly personal reasons. As a matter of fact, things do not always go on well for me, mainly in my personal life. Because of that, the project stopped for a long time. However due to the epidemic this year, many things have been stopped and I have a lot of spare time to work on it. This year does not go well, but for me the extra time is something to comfort me a little bit. And thanks to many technologies and methods discovered by other people working on MF fangame, many formal headaches are solved. So, I can release this version now. 

Q: What's the relationship between this game and WSW Worlds?
A: I saw someone regard this game as a remake version of WSW Worlds. Well not that precisely... WSW Worlds is one of the games I made and due to some reason, I decided to stop working on them. Many levels of this game are adapted or mixed from levels of WSW Worlds and my other levels and I tried to make them more playable, but this is more of a tribute, I guess. The whole structure of this game is different, and inspired mainly from official Super Mario games like SMB3.

Q: What will be the next major version?
A: Version 0.5. There will be some online features like scoreboard. And possibly, some new levels will be added.
