You could say Sploosh instead of smash. I'm on board.

Fruit smash is the common term used, sir.

That bonus stage is pretty cool.  Very nice work on the game! 8)

I started working in program code to handle bonus stages and coded in the first of the bonus screens.  It may still evolve as the game progresses.   (Also using the word 'smash' seems inappropriate here, I'll need to use some other word to describe things hit by fruit..?)

I've also bumped up the maximum number of fruits, and in this case the umbrellas count as a different type of 'fruit' that floats upwards instead of falling down.   The other cool thing is that the game can now handle any number of active fruits (falling/floating/etc..) simultaneously.

Looks great, John.  Maybe you could use the word DROP to replace SMASH?

I guess I'll just leave it saying SMASH in the bonus stages.

I'm starting to have more fun mixing up the stages a bit now.   Again, always subject to change as things will keep evolving, but this stage adds a new color of snapjaw that's the same as the regular blue ones, but after jumping in the water it will jump back out of it - once.. and from where it went in, so you know where they'll be coming from.

The nice part is this gives Jr 3 opportunities to get a jump bonus from a passing snapjaw.  Once when it's on it's way down, once when it jumps back up, and again when it falls back down again.

And there's a pie.  It acts like a fruit, except when Jr kicks the pie, it travels sideways.  And then arcs down once it slides off a platform.

Oh, and lots of moving platforms.  The ones in the water bob around.

I really like the snapjaw jumping out of the water idea.  Looks like it's forming into something great! 8)

Things are looking pretty good.  The latest things I'm adding seem to be working out nicely.  I'm still working on bonus stages and of course, still cleaning up code.

Sometimes I feel like I've fell down a rabbit hole.. like I've found a glitch in the matrix.  I don't see how the original code does not summon a portal to hell, let alone actually form a functional video game.   Well, I'm onto you Universe!   I may not have found the knock knock joke hidden within the digits of Pi, but I found *this* and I recognize when something does not compute.

Anyhoo, the latest bonus stage works really well.   So well that I even had to tone it down a bit.   The fruits don't score as high in the bonus stages to allow us to crank things up to 11 without making scoring bonkers.   Each fruit in the bonus stages gives 100 points.  The fruit smash scores go 200,400,800,1200,1600...

Here's a couple more screenshots of bonus stages that are being toyed with.  I wanted to see if I could get a little silly with the springboards and worked out a way to get 10 of them at once.   For a bonus stage, why not.

And then also a 'Mario's Hideout' bonus stage.   It still needs a bit of work to make the timer run out faster (because a bonus stage is supposed to be short) but the idea seems pretty good.
