The Purple Coin - Batbro/Final Edition
preview
By: Miles
Swarmed by an evil army of Collector Bros, you must fight to survive. Possess your enemies and cause fights to earn points and buy yourself more time! You aren't alone this time; a costumed friend lurks in the shadows. Complete Challenges to unlock new stages and gameplay modifiers, and compete for an online high score.

The game now has 10 stages. There are 9 Challenges to test your skills - can you complete them all?

This is the definitive final version. If you still think this is short, remember that this is just a minigame.

Controls: It's a ZXC setup. If you have an awful keyboard, you should go to the Options menu and turn on Auto-Run. If you have a wired Xbox 360 or Playstation 3 USB controller, you can use them if you have it plugged in before the game starts.

The F1 text can be a big help to you - you should read it when you can. It's possible that you could find something interesting within it!

Be sure to extract the game! If you run it from the ZIP then you might not be able to save your name or anything that you unlocked.

Update Feb. 2014: Fixed issue problem in Moves List screen where the keys shown as being pressed were wrong. Thank you, you who lives down the street from me.
Completion: Full Game Genre: Minigame

Horrible Writer From the start I knew this game would be something great and I was not disappointed. 9 / 10
Jaden1291 Wait...wait..WHAT? Another great game made by Miles? I played his games before and they were great, and so as The Purple Coin. Get the game now! 10 / 10
ThePurpleIndigo This game is a must play for anyone looking for something spectacular. I would HIGHLY recommend this game for anyone. 10 / 10
DJ Coco The Purple Coin was a very good game, but it felt unfinished before. Like, there was lots of potential that was unused. Now, the final version certainly lives up to what I expected. It feels really complete now and is lots of fun to play. A very well-done fangame you need to download right now if you haven't yet. 10 / 10
SuperMario400 The game is great and I definately recommend it to anybody. My only complaint is the ZXC controls and I don't know how to use a controller in place of it. 9 / 10
Nite Shadow Miles is not one to disappoint! He made an excellent game based around one of the Mario series' common inanimate objects. To top it off, this has to be one of the best games I've seen on MFGG. 10 / 10
fizzypop56 The Purple Coin Batbro/Final Edition is a great fan game that won't disappoint you. Download this game now! 10 / 10
LuigiMario9 The Purple Coin: Batbro edition is a nice game to add to your library. 9 / 10
Jack-of-All Games I honestly thought I've seen the best The Purple Coin could offer in its last version.

I'm very glad to be wrong.

Can't wait to try this out! :D
EDIT: That Batbro engine is AWESOME!

Oh man, the game is awesome! Truly one of the best minigames on mfgg! This deserves a 10/10.
I almost thaught this is a late april fools joke and some other game awaits me, but it turned out, it's the real one! Boy, was I glad! I'll write an review soon.

Y'know - It's pretty outright a-hole-ish to poke fun at a poor fangame on another person's fangame which is totally irrelevant to that game.
 
LSF Games Apr 4 2013, 9:31 AM
I just wanted to compare them and wanted to descibe the difference between a bad and a good fangame.
But if you say so, I'll change it then.

Excelent stuff!

Miles, You did not dissapoint! :D

Is there any way to make this game easier as Batbro? The stomping and punching mechanics aren't 100% reliable.

As for the stomping thing being unreliable, sorry about that. The attack function by itself wasn't built to be relied on by itself, though - you're supposed to also make smart use of your gadgets and maneuverability in order to survive. Even when swarmed it can be possible to find a moment to attack properly without getting got.

The control set may help:
Press down and attack to use the batclaw to trip your enemies and make them vulnerable (or if you hold down the button, you can reel in the more weakened enemies for an auto-attack), and up and attack to try to escape to the ceiling. Tapping the attack button alone when out of range of any enemy will throw a batarang. Hold jump to glide.

Here's a no-hit Batbro Mode play of Layout 1:

Gamemaker's a decent hobbyist tool, it's obviously not hte top of the ladder, but you are able to make good games with it, wiht effort. So gamemaker itself isn't lame(even with it's limitations when you know how to use everyhting it can offer), it's just the people who make the games that don't put effort into that make gamemaker seem lame.

Also good final release miles, hope to see your 'other' project pop up sometime in physcial form.

Hey, i have a question - what the gameplay modifiers do? I know what funny endings do, but the rest?
 
Miles Apr 13 2013, 6:06 PM
Excluding the first one itself, the first few are visual modifiers. The last two actually do modify gameplay, so significantly that high score submission is disabled when using them. Just try 'em on at the same time and hide for a bit - you'll see what they do fairly quickly.

What does funny endings/losses do then? i dont want to prove you wrong, i just want to know.

^ The Game Over text attacks underlying Bros.
 
FanMarioPL Apr 14 2013, 8:36 AM
Yay, I have completed all challenges and I have every level/modifier unlocked :D Here are some ideas if you want to make a sequel in the future:
- more challenges(score 50 points as a coin[bridges!], score 100 points without harming anyone[bridges too, but as a bro], possess 20 bros in a game...)
- of course more levels
- level editor please :D
- maybe two player game?
- play as a bro mode, you and other bros search for a coin and the coin may possess them :D
- difficulty levels
- ability to turn on powerups(mushroom: you can survive one attack, fire flower: guess, pow: kills all bros on ground, mod: kills all bros on air...)
- ability to turn on enemies(goomba, koopa...)
Good luck in your next games(if you want to make any XD)!

Is there a certain thing you have to have to dwonload this?
 
marioxx134 Apr 14 2013, 3:33 PM
Mine has been loading for hours and its just a black screen.
 
marioxx134 Apr 14 2013, 4:15 PM
This is one of the most great games I have played.oh do you think you can add some thing like where the bro takes a another bros arm then kicks him in the face then he will fling back cuasing other bros to die if they are hit be the other bro.
 
LSF Games Apr 15 2013, 5:18 PM
You should have tell us,
you have to unable the modifiers. I had a score of 1262 and I was wondering, why it wasn't in the highscore-table. -_- Well, let's try it again.
 
Miles Apr 15 2013, 6:10 PM
I submitted an update a few days ago fixing various broken things, the fact that the high score button is visible when it shouldn't be being one of them. It ain't up yet, though.(Update: Now it is.) Very sorry about the score thing.

(One shouldn't expect cheaty modifiers to be usable in a high score competition anyway, though. :P)

Well another thing when the my score gets higher the bros start to come in gaint gropus and I think this actvates the modifier swarm of bros is that a glitch or did you mean to do that?
 
Miles Apr 16 2013, 10:51 PM
^ They're supposed to get faster over time; it's a part of how I paced the difficulty. The modifier just makes it be at near-max fastness from the beginning.

Both a unique and fun idea all executed perfectly (Except for a few freeze issues).

I'm amazed. It's by far one of the best Mario Fan Galaxy Games i have ever played :)

DARN IT. I really wish I could have fixed those. Oh well.

Glad you enjoyed it.
 
Fatherpirhana67 May 6 2013, 8:00 PM
I'm having a problem.sometimes the game crashes on me and i lose all of the game modifiers and stages i unlocked.could you please fix that?
 
Fatherpirhana67 May 6 2013, 8:02 PM
I also think there should be a reward for surviving and killing all of the bros in Batbro mode.
 
Miles May 6 2013, 9:08 PM
Crashes? Are you on Windows 8? If so, you're probably gonna have rather bad luck trying to play this. Otherwise, what's happening when the game crashes? I never have them while playing, so I can't fix it if I don't know what to fix. If this is common, whenever the game tells you you unlocked some stuff then you should close it and then start again. It should save them. If it doesn't save, there's probably a permissions problem with where ever you have the game downloaded to.

I ran completely out of motivation to do anything else with this around the time of release so I never did get around to adding an award for that. My bad. You can complete some of the challenges and unlock the first two stages while playing it, though.

Since I downloaded your Mario Bros: Just for Fun game that I played with my cousin, I planning to download The Purple Coin right now. You have great skill in game making.
 
Miles Jul 31 2013, 1:53 PM
I think of it more as having extreme luck, as is the case with Super Battle Bros (JFF) and this game. I'm fairly good at engine-y stuff, but game design in general (like all the other areas) I'm pretty bad at.

Hope you have fun.
 
Jaden1291 Aug 2 2013, 1:08 PM
I've played the game, and I enjoyed it! I was able to complete my first Batbro game (in the Space Ship level).
 
Miles Oct 16 2013, 9:20 PM
Dear person using username "Mikael":
Trying to hack the power meter or the score will not work, but it does submit your current name / score / cheater's code to a secret high score table for my review. Shame on you for trying to cheat, but you do have my thanks for letting me know that my anti-cheat system works.

Everyone else:
People using names attempting to be mean in some way are not staying on the score table.

July 2014 edit: Whoever tried hacking the power bar 22 times, you are hilarious. I'm surprised people are actually trying to memory cheat this silly old game. What's the point?
