Director's Notes (FunkyK38 (talk))

Greetings, all! Welcome to the February issue of Palette Swap! My apologies for my absence last month, school caught me in a rough spot! Great thanks to Yoshi876 for holding down the fort for me.

As always, if you are interested in writing for us, just PM me an application on the forums and I will be in touch! We can work out a submission schedule if you don’t think you want to write a section every month.

With that, let’s move on to the art!

What’s on The Box? (Yoshi876 (talk))


Hello 'Shroom readers! Welcome to What's on the Box, the best place to view a random boxart of a game every month. This month I have chosen the boxart for Alleyway, a Breakout clone featuring everyone's favourite plumber: Waluigi Mario. The boxart features Mario in a little capsule shaped machine about to rebound a ball back at the tiles in an attempt to break out, and that's about it really. Although, some of you more astute readers and lookers may have noticed that Mario's hat is blue, other than that there’s nothing else interesting to note about the boxart. However, it does seem a bit strange that it’s not more Mario-focussed, especially as the game features a breakable Mario as one of the levels, you would think that the boxart would try and emphasize the Mario elements within the game, especially as other than that it is a Breakout clone.

Featured Sprite (FunkyK38 (talk))

For this month, I have for you all an adorable little sprite that for some, may cause pain at the memory of trying to collect them all: From Mario & Luigi: Bowser’s Inside Story, we have an adorable little Blitty Blitty! So cute, it makes me like cats a little bit more, I think. I can certainly remember the days when I played though BiS looking for these things, along with those golden acorns! There certainly was a lot to collect in that game.
