Love this mod. Always good to see IDW characters in games, her abilities are interesting and give her a unique middle ground between shooter and platformer, and her sprites are good. And after playing most of Metroid Vanguard, I loaded her up in first person for an extended period of time and that's a whole different thing again.
I only have a couple of complaints. First, it kind of sucks that third person lock on doesn't aim her gun up and down, and between that and not being able to jump and shoot it makes hitting flying things without going first person pretty hard.
Second, and related to that, you already let her shoot with the Fire Normal button even in midair in Ringslinger, and I played around with it a little and it felt really good. Why can't she do that in single player? It would also help with flying things in third person, and even help a little with aiming quickly in first person. (As any Scout main in TF2 can tell you, sometimes with a fast character it's easier to "aim" by keeping your aim about where it is and moving.) (Also incredibly minor it would also let me go from First Person Samus to First Person Whisper without rebinding.) (Also maybe one of the custom buttons would be better for single player)
Still, probably my favorite character mod, or at least my favorite one that doesn't feel like a COMPLETELY different game. 5/5, outstanding, I had high hopes and this was even better than expected.
Whisper has the same problem as some other characters I've tried, where the ludicrously mobile airjump/hover move completely obsoletes everything else? There's no point in any of the combat tools or the risky saw dash when you can fly over entire levels with ease just by holding A, which is faster, safer, *and* easier.
But also. I can just, not use that move? And suddenly everything comes together, and it all works great! The rocket is hilarious, and I love that the laser bounces for a million years before going away. The mask is a really nice touch! I've been scouting the levels for places I can rocket jump across a big gap
So... yeah, I just don't like the hover move, I feel like it shouldn't give a vertical boost at all. This is kind of sacrilege but I also think she should move slower and have slightly worse jumps like knuckles, to make the combat matter a bit more. Any excuse to use more lasers and rockets and hammers, since that's the good stuff!
Just to spread the word...but...well, I feel like the controls for laser & rocket tied to the Fire button (still shift on ground for net games and such), just so that you can use laser & rocket in mid-air AND spike on ground.
Still, I find this mod as one of the rare occasions I decide to play a lot, and I mean, A LOT more than other characters I played, so yeah, props to the amount of effort put into this fascinating character. You still should probably consider making the previous sentence lines part of the next update tho, if you want to
incredible representation of whisper's comic self with very creative movement options!
also super form makes her absolutely busted and it's a major blast to just breeze through pretty much everything using exclusively spike and hover.
now all we need is a pack with her and tangle because... yanno.
This is one of the greatest mods I have ever used. The five wisp abilities are brilliant! Laser does it job right as a basic attack, Rocket acts like a good ol' homing shot, Spike actually allows you to climb walls, Hover helps with tight spaces, and Cube (Hammer) is a great maneuver. And all five wisps surrounding Whisper in her Super form is a nice touch, too. But one question, have you thought about including two further wisps for Whisper's abilities? Red Burst could be added and utilized as a multi-jump and/or flame attack, and Yellow Drill could also be added allowing access to Knuckles paths by allowing her to drill into the walls or floor and dig to her destination, and/or as a simple forward attack. Wouldn't that be sick?
This is my absolute favorite mod-- not just because she's my favorite character in general, the moveset is extremely fun to use, my only nitpick is that on a cliffside you can barely angle to laser downwards, but everything else is absolutely fantastic. I recognize both her goal post and game over sprites from their source material, the ability to equip the mask is such a small but appreciated feature. Very nice work.
absolutely stellar character!!! ever since the teasers on twitter i was excited beyond belief and i am certainly not disappointed!! The only reason i dont give it 5 stars is because of a frequent issue that i run into, which is whisper getting stuck inside a cube with an enemy sometimes. Sometimes you can mash out, but sometimes you just have to grin and bear it until the cube dissipates...
unrelated to my rating, but a small nitpick nonetheless: rocket doesn't blow up the arid canyon TNT barrels, yet laser can, which is a little strange.
aside from that, gosh, this is amazing. new main for sure!
This is a good character that is fun to play as, but there is also not so good stuff: first of all, this mod is a bit unstable, so the game might crash sometimes while playing as her. It crashed on me only twice, but still. Also, I think the rocket needs a little buff, like, make it deal slightly more damage (if it's possible) . (ik my review bad dont hit)
I'd like to start saying that I love this character, it's so fun and free, whatever I wanted to do, I found how to and I love that
But I found just a little problem.. The lasers and rockets hitboxes are pretty weird, if you shoot one near a wall, but pointing somewhere else, there's a good chance the laser will will desintegrate (or you'll blow yourself up, if it was a rocket)
I loved it, I just really wish there was a dedicated button for shooting/charging like "fire" or one of the custom buttons, it's just really easy to forget that the character uses a different move in midair.
Outstanding piece of work. Just by quickly skimming the reviews I didn't notice much talk about the little technical details, so i'm gonna talk about those here to not tread on what everyone else has said already.
First off, 8 sprite rotations. This is great, considering whisper is asymmetrical. It's very nice. High effort.
Second off, Super Whisper is insane. Hair color changes based on the wisp, and all of them fly around you. It's nice
The only problem I have with this mod is the spike wisp. I want to be able to fire the laser and rocket midair without taking out the spike wisp, and this would also negate the problem of using hammer accidentally when trying to spike wisp a wall. I'd map it to Custom 1 and switch Mask to Custom 2. Might be hard to do, but it would also be nice to have a little hud change when the mask is on, like a crosshair change or something.
Been messing around with this one for a while, had a lot of fun with her!
I really don't have much to say, i love almost everything about this addon!
The sprites, the moveset, the super form! You have put so much effort in them and everybody is appreciating it!
Tought, i think that when you turn super, rocket wisp should target more than one enemy at once, also the target symbol should appear while holding the rocket shot.
I hope we will get more wisps in the future but for now, keep it up!
ive been eyeing this ever since i first stumbled upon the first tweets about it on twitter, and now that its out oh my GOD it does not disappoint
i think this might be one of, if not, my favorite character mod, not only because of it being whisper but also because of the freaking gorgeous sprite art and the completely different moveset whisper provides
the only critiques i really have is that i sometimes find myself using the spike ability instead of the cube ability and vice versa, and i think an option to map the laser ability to the ringtoss button would be really helpful (also i think itd be adorable if whisper and tangle could interact in some way)
overall this is yet another phenomenal mod, great work!!
