Mass produced Shadow Androids are invading SRB2!

Although the Shadow Androids have a homing attack, it's strictly a mobility option that can't kill enemies. They won't damage enemies by jumping on them either. So how do you fight badniks?

Your gun has a very high range and firing rate, but some bullet spread. You can move while shooting, but your accuracy will go down when you do.

On some weirdness with this release:

Shadow Android was created as an experiment to see how quickly I could make a not-terrible-looking character WAD using prerendered sprites and an established workflow.
It turns out the answer is "disgustingly fast." Truth be told I kinda felt like I was cheating. Most character mods are made by hand over super long periods of time by crazy skilled and passionate people, and here I am cynically automating the process. This next to Inazuma's crazy-polished-but-still-unreleased Shadow mod was supposed to be the punchline of the whole experiment, but it just kinda made me feel like an asshole instead.

Still, I thought it was fun enough to be worth playing, so I originally released it under an alias on a different website. I then noticed just how shady that website was, and quickly took it down- though not before getting some valuable feedback on discord. I can provide the judges with screenshots of my rendering workflow if they need proof that I'm the author.



V 1.1
  • Initial MB release
  • Made it so that you can't jump while shooting- though you can still shoot while jumping.
  • Fixed a bug that would cause your fire rate to skyrocket when used on a ledge.
  • Made the homing attack set and check PF_THOKKED like you'd expect
  • Bouncing off of enemies only overrides your momz during a homing attack, and for a split second after. This means you can crawla bounce like a normal character now, but still don't get tons of free height just from a vertical homing attack.
  • Added a small cooldown to homing attacking the same enemy, to make it a little less silly.
  • Fixed the offsets on a couple frames before realizing how massive a task its' going to be and giving up for now.

I know right?! I was super in to that whole plotline as a kid, and then they just dropped it completely.

Yeah... maybe the Sonic Team didn't want to continue with Shadow... now he's just there.
