Overview

Quickies

Ultramario was once tired of fangames, made with the limited and glitchy Trisoft engine. He then decided to do his own engine, which is also open source.

Features

Ultramario did not bother to program 100% accurate basic physics to Mario, because it would take a lot of effort and won't make any remarkable differences to gameplay at all. He put the effort in features instead:

  • Slopes
  • Run up walls
  • Swimming
  • Spin Jump
  • Item carrying/throwing
  • Climbing on fences, which is also two sided
  • Item sprout out after block bounces once
  • P-Switch that effects on coins, brick blocks doors. Effect also lasts from room to room
  • Pipe network and multiple entrance systems
  • Invisible blocks and smartly build "slide out of blocks", which makes it hard to get stuck in blocks
  • One-way and auto-scrolling views
  • Reserve box
  • Level timer and music speed-up
  • Block train

Enemies

The Ultramario engine features a wide array of baddies, which work with shocking accuracy. For example: Hammer Bros. jump on and off blocks, and Boos have a little delay before they start chasing Mario after he turns away.

Reception

Though the engine is pretty good, it has been criticized for certain glitches. It has also been criticized as not being very "user-friendly." However, the most common criticism is that it is used too much by Hello. In recent times, most users of premade engines have preferred the Hello Mario Engine, and the Ultramario Engine is seldom used today.
