This is something I want to put in my fangame... a level select that is more than a bland looking backdrop, and text lines thrown in your face. It's not gonna be an overworld map (not trying to completely rip off SMW) or anything like that... but an images of the islands and the world, (also airships, Death Egg and the like...) with dots for where each zone is... and a new level icon for each one. Just something that looks nice, and adds to the fun, in that you can freely move about zones, and have a nice looking level select feature. As a kid, I could care less... but looking back... if you pick a level, you start the ENTIRE game from that point... and the menus look shitty.
Just a couple things I wanna change in my project.
Basically, the same as what Sonic 4 did.
