Clarification: You can only play as Mario. We haven't even started on this game yet. Its just in the 'idea' phase.

OK
You are building a game and have no basic things like graphics, images etc.

Ok
Use animated gifs for mushrooms and background objects like turtels, owls etc.
And make 6 or 7 pictures of mario
3 for walking expression.
1 for jump
and 2 for when the mario got by the enemies.

Ok

and for the background images its depend on your stage length. What is the length of your game stage length
You can use one image and use multiple images for that.
One image is easier to do because it needs little coding.

So wheneever you need help pm me or ask me here.

I hate to be a difficult Noob, but can you give us like a step-by-step? We have no idea about L.B. because we just started programming in our school. To us 'Coding' means 'College Physics' to us practically. And how do we PM?
