I need to re-release Ortho Robot because Apple broke everything with their new update in which they revolutionized pricing, and so I decided to update it just a little. So far I got some basic shading, a resize option, fixed menu transitions and a small fade for the green/red background.

Now I want to add something for people that have a star in every level, but I don't know what. Probably akin to Mari0's cheats or something completely different.
Suggestions!

More levels would be super fun! I really like what I've seen in the community, even if there isn't a lot of it, and the levels in the original game were awesome :) That doesn't really have much to do with 100% completion though... unless it was like an expert mode or something.
Maybe you could unlock some kind of funny alternate character?
I'm really excited for a re-release nonetheless, thanks for continuing to do awesome stuff!

Thirded. Also, what about dynamic blocks? Like blocks that disappear after you step on it, blocks that move, etc...

Hats.
Also, slow-mo.

Don't you think it's a little somewhat hard?
It's just "some features to add while Maurice is at it", not a OR:SE.

how about a level editor
i know theres already one on the forum but an official one that you can access ingame would be nice
if not, then maybe a cheat menu
the jump button could be a cheat
maybe teleportation as a cheat
maybe even editing the levels while youre playing them

Sarcastic commentary as an unlockable feature?

This is the only thing that's been said so far that I agree with
Besides my post, but that was basically alternative characters and more levels, which don't really stand out that much.
YES Pyrosaur
YES
Thank you this is definitely the winner of the thread.

Only problem with it is that people won't get that's Maurice's style of humor unless they go on the forum. They'll just think "oh that guy's a dick" and it becomes worthless for them. Would be a bit of let down if people didn't understand it was all in-joke.

He could have a disclaimer that flashes for a half of a second about it.
But then again, chances are they won't judge it seeing how the website is called stabyourself.net

2 ideas from me.
1) Hard mode, where the stage coins are in different spots, and levels are altered to make them tricker.
2) Unlockable character: Play as Maurice. Or someone else from the forums. Possibly Camewel.

QCode, sarcasm doesn't have to be an inside joke. If he does it right, it could appear quite funny.

I'm pretty sure if you don't know what you're in for when you select "sarcastic commentator mode" it's your own damn fault if you're offended and you should cry into your pillow.

"This level used to be much harder but after hearing feedback I decided that many of you were complete idiots and had no choice but to make it easier."

If that was along the lines of the sarcastic commentary I'd love it, whether or not I knew about the forums.

I completely agree with everything idiot9.0 and Pyrosaur said. This is a really good idea Maurice you really should do this.

dynamic block idea +1
acid trip +1
sarcastic commentary +1
level editor +1

Maybe there could be some sort of enemies in the game
(although It is a puzzle game so I don't know how it would work)

I don't know how far you're willing to take the "unlockable", but here's some food for thought.
- Tag-it mode: A mode that requires you to color every white block by touching them (would likely require levels to be redesigned or something).
- New Dimension-mode: The ability that allows you to rotate the level 90 degrees on the Z axis if no block blocks your path (probably a pain to code and would require new levels).
- New music (if you can find/get some to use).
- Colors (gold, platinum (making them shine and sparkle a lot would be even better)) for the character, background or menu.
- Perhaps a different character sprite. Or give him a flashy crown. Maybe a medal. Maybe some flowers.
- White tiles become disco tiles and disco-music plays on a loop. Maybe give him and afro while you're at it.
- An editor would certainly be worth 100%-ing the game for and is quite wanted, though I can understand you're not looking for something as work intensive.
- A handful of extra levels would also be nice. Especially if they are tougher or bigger than the previous levels.
- Think Fast!-mode: The finish block randomly respawns every set time limit to a random white block in the level (ofcourse just purely for fun).
- Barfing rainbows-mode: Ortho robot pukes rainbows constantly while playing, clouding your vision, making it incredibly hard to progress if you stay still for too long.

Okay I'll stop now.
