NAME

Games::Nintendo::Mario::SMB2 -- a class for vegetable-throwing Italian plumbers (and friends)

SYNOPSIS

  use Games::Nintendo::Mario::SMB2;

  my $liege = Games::Nintendo::Mario::SMB2->new(name => 'Peach');
  
  # below outputs "Peach: 1/3"
  print
    $liege->name . ": " . $liege->hearts . "/" . $liege->max_hearts . "\n";

  $liege->powerup('heart');    # 2/3
  $liege->damage;              # 1/3
  $liege->powerup('mushroom'); # 1/4
  $liege->powerup('heart');    # 2/4
  $liege->powerup('mushroom'); # 2/5
  $liege->powerup('heart');    # 3/5

  print "I'm feeling ", $liege->state, "!\n"; # She's feeling super.

  $liege->powerup('mushroom'); # Nothing happens.

  $liege->damage for (1 .. 3); # cue the Mario Death Music

DESCRIPTION

This class subclasses Games::Nintendo::Mario (and G::N::M::Hearts), providing a model of the behavior of the Mario Brothers in Super Mario Brothers 2. All of the methods described in the Mario interface exist as documented.

NAMES

The plumber may be named Mario or Luigi, or a non-plumbing character named Peach or Toad may be created.

STATES

$hero->state will return 'dead' if he has no hearts, 'normal' if he has one heart, and 'super' if he has more than one heart. State may not be set during construction; set hearts instead.

POWERUPS

Valid powerups are: mushroom or heart
