Characters


With his trusty backpack ready, Skip is ready to dive into a new adventure!

Inspired by collectathon platformers like A Hat in Time and Super Mario 64, Skip is designed for seamless movement across the levels with his simple yet hard to master abilities. Let's go over what Skip can do!

If you wanna get a quick rundown, here's a very helpful cheat sheet by my good friend Emi!
Spoiler: TL;DR


Name:  baby.png
Views: 13488
Size:  1.1 KBDouble Jump!
The standard double jump. Skip can't damage enemies while jumping unless he lands on them, so be careful! Nothing really interesting at face value, but you'll be thankful to have it once we go over the next ability...

Size:  1.1 KBDive!
By pressing Spin, Skip lunges forwards. While diving, you can hurt enemies from all sides. If you land while diving, you'll slide on the ground - which can be used for sliding down slopes or even triggering those pesky DSZ2 spindash wheels!
Skip's first dive makes him go slightly higher, while the second dive doesn't. This ability is key for combat and maneuverability through the levels, since you can stay on the air far longer than usual. Be careful though, crashing on a wall will make you bounce off it!

Size:  1.1 KBMonitor Crafting!
That backpack ain't for nothing! Destroying badniks and ring monitors will drop scraps that you can use for crafting monitors! Stand still and press Spin + Jump to open up the crafting menu. For a fair price, you can craft yourself your own shields to use on ANY level, including shields not present in the vanilla campaign! Skip is also able to keep any shield he carries through stages. Be careful though, getting hit without a shield or even dying will drop scrap, that other players might be able to snatch!
Use the movement keys to cycle through the monitors available, press Up to turn them into a Golden Monitor (That costs much more). Press Jump to craft and Spin to leave the menu.

And that's not all! You're probably saying to yourself "Hey, I don't need no shields to play!", well hold your tongue and listen - Shields now serve a secondary purpose...

Size:  1.1 KBShield Abilities!

Shields change how you play Skip completely. Depending on what shield you wield, your Dive will be powered up differently! This makes some monitors more expensive than others, but they all have their strengths and weaknesses! Try 'em all if you can, see what best suits your playstyle!

Here's a handy cheat sheet from my friend Emi again!
Spoiler: Shield Abilities


Spoiler: All abilities shown

Size:  1.1 KBExtras!

If you know me, there's always some more fun extras to look out for. As always I encourage you go out and find them out yourself, but here ya go!
Spoiler:
  • Particles galore for Skip's abilities!
  • running dust clouds and footsies sfx because i find it really cute okay
  • a dizzying continue
  • a very smol fox boy
  • Fireworks!
  • Custom NiGHTS sprites!
  • Gather all the Chaos Emeralds for a Steam Summer Sale Event (tm)
  • sPINNING HURT FRAMES
  • Afraid of the dark? Press Custom 1!
  • Be friendly and kind to others by hugging them with Custom 2 - you can also hug back!
  • No one's around to help
  • Life is hard, life is stressful
  • I need some peace and tranquility
  • I don't need to prove myself to anyone [Toss Flag]

Oh, dude! This character's really fun to play! The dive definitely gives me Super Mario Odyssey vibes with the whole dive-jump-dive combos you can pull off, though it's a lot easier to do with Skip.


Plus now it's just satisfying to defeat each and every enemy for scrap to make powerups, even if Skip has a harder time with fighting. I'll have to test this character out in multiplayer sometime to provide golden monitors to everybody! (Though I'd need people to not steal my precious scrap if that was the case... I guess it's self-balancing!)


EDIT: It just occurred to me that the dive-jump-dive is literally just Hat Kid's moveset and how did I not see this earlier aaaaa

The idea is certainly interesting, and the design is adorable.

But I'm getting issues. I load up the mod, with and without others, and I can't access the crafting menu. On top of that, I can't even use the flashlight.

Some warning about bad argument #1 "addHook". Any ideas about what this is?

You can fix that by updating your copy of SRB2 to version 2.2.6. New features for mods are frequently added in patches so it's good practice to ensure you're running the latest version of SRB2 before downloading any recently released mods.

Imagine this being a reskin of Mario.
Mario can dive mid-air, and so does Skip.
Skip and Mario cannot spin dash since they do not have the default ability.
That's all the similarities I've found so far.

The diving reminds me a LOT of A Hat in Time, which is a good thing. Very much going to enjoy playing as them for this alone, I think~ xP

Truly amazing character. 10/10. I can't help but feel like I'm playing Super Mario 64 with Skip's move set sometimes! Skip for life!

I've played with this fella for more than 5 days and I can surely say that the way the Crafting Menu works is astounding, to say the least.

But how the heck can he collect so many scrap and never get a speed decrease? That's a question I made with my mind for now.
