Willo The Cat

Willo The Cat v1.1

I really love the design and the ability, and it's pretty neat how the running state in ghost form is low enough to the ground that you can go under spin gaps without spinning. The jump ability is super neat and really simple, I adore it. I don't personally find it especially overpowered, no moreso than say, Shadow's Snap. Hell, Shadow has more control and can go much higher AND faster than Willo, yet nobody complains- or rather if they do, I've not seen it.

I love this character! I honestly don't get the complaint that Willo is "too overpowered". The abilities are so simple and yet you can use them to quickly blast through zones. The inclusion of the rolling spindash makes the moveset less derivative than it could've been. I also love the way Willo's sprites look, so props for that as well.

This community consistently surprises me with how many different and uniquely amazing characters it can make. A simple but effective moveset that melds perfectly with the engine.

i feel like he should be able to use the different shields as other wisps

Wilo the Pillow is super fun to play as. You can get up to speed in no time with the ability plus its pretty simple to learn.

But this pillow isnt soft and comfy, nUh UH!

Pillow the will has a nack for speedrunning too which i have seen a plethora of.

Heh, finally, a mod that utilizes a Wisp better than the mainline Sonic games do. With pretty cool moves and visuals as well!

Nice to play but his jump move really strong in terms of vertical mobility. His running animation feels as though it should damage enemies or put him into dashmode but it doesn't, maybe it can be implemented in the future to further ramp up the OP-ness or something IDK. Otherwise he's still a good character to play around with.

One of my favorite SRB2 mods, along with Mario! The visuals are great and the abilities are fun! Thought that it will be harder to master, though it didn't turn out to be that. Not complaining about that, just saying.

Visually, I love this character, Willo The Cat looks amazing. But this character was created to show "look my OC is cool". The ability of this character is unbalanced, no mechanics, he easily flies through the levels in seconds. I think you need to work on the character's abilities.

We will DEFINITELY work on his abilities, but the thing that annoys me the most about these 3 stars

.....is how you guys barely elaborate on how powerful he is
we weren't even trying to make him look cool in the first place, plus knuckles and tails LITERALLY do the same thing. If you can, send a gif showing the problems you have and going into further detail about it.

Willo is a well-made and well-drawn character, but I don't like his ability. No, his ability is good and works without errors, but he's just too powerful. I was able to complite ACZ1 in just a minute. Do I need to say that I didn't give my best?

Willo is very easy to learn to play and you just fly through the levels, like SMS, although I was hoping it would be a balanced character (like mario, silver etc).

I've gotta say, as someone who's pretty biased towards no spin characters Willo took me by surprise.
Definitely took a couple of stages to grasp how deep his mechanics actually go, which is impressive being a literal two button character. I really hope speedrunners take a look at Willo since with enough practice I'm sure he can be a real winner. I had fun trying to speed through levels and I'm terrible at the game LOL.
Willo is, in my opinion, perfectly balanced. His ability, while strong in movement and hazard invulnerability, is entirely dependent on the skill of the player. Plus, it ain't good for squat in combat. The skill ceiling is very high, but he's beginner friendly enough to make you WANT to master his gameplay style.
You and everyone who helped out truly knocked it out of the park here. Willo really is something special.

This character is really OP and also not that fun to play for me.
Idk, visually, char looks awesome, no doubt, but ability just be like "spindash and fly through all level weeeeee" and that's not even that bit challenging like Maimy at least.

Probably the most fun 2-buttton character, with one of the coolest moves and some Wisp representation. (Yes, Sonic Colors is my favorite game)

I'm going to be honest, theres really nothing I can say. Willo is an amazing character, his abilities are really helpful. But dam can he be hard to master, I just finished the game and I can barely take a risk to gain speed or skip some parts of the level. Though this is a good thing from what I see it, the harder something is to master, the more you'll play it. And even when mastered Willo will never get boring, outstanding job!

I generally don't have all that much fun with 2-button characters, especially ones that just have a unique jump ability.

I did here. During my main testing session, I played up to CEZ2, and would have played further had I had the time. The Phase Dash, with how it currently works, is one of the best jump abilities I've seen so far, and is easily the thing gameplay-wise that elevates this above the rest for me. Alongside the Spindash being able to make it stronger, there's also the Spindash you can do out of it AND the wall rebound, which I found useful.

Extremely versatile, check this one out! I'd imagine people will find speedrunning tech in no time.

He's finally here.

Seriously one of the most fun and versatile movesets I've seen for an SRB2 character. He's seriously a blast to play, and he looks cool as fuck too. I can't wait for the speedrunners to get their grubby speedrunner hands on this. It's possible to perform some insane strats with him. Good job!

Simple, yet ludicrously fun (and powerful if you know what you're doing.)

All emeralds collected, go play the cat. Now. (:

This sucks.









Just kidding. This is actually an amazing mod. Extremely well done in every department. Willo is incredibly fun and has an awesome and unique theme. Great work!
