Cape (Level Genre)

From Kaizo
Jump to: navigation, search

A Cape Level is, simply, a level that requires extensive usage of Cape Flight and other skills revolving around usage of the Cape Feather. Because Kaizo does not incorporate powerups except when specifically required, the player will often only use Cape skills when playing Cape levels.


There is no specific example of a Cape Level that serves as an exemplar for other levels to draw inspiration. Rather, Cape Levels in romhacks tend to draw inspiration from specific skills and player movement. Because the mechanics around cape are so unique and have a high skill ceiling, entire hacks have been created to highlight and challenge the player's skill with the item; notable among these is The Volpey's Friend, a non-kaizo hack.
