Description

Some of you might remember my old Christmas level, Christmas Afterthought. I thought it was good, but then I realized it lacked some things. All of these things have been added. I\‘ve also fixed some bugs, and there is also some other stuff that is just plain better. Also included is the nighttime version of the level. The nite version used to crash the server of whoever hosted it…..filename was too long. This is fixed, and the nite version has massive updates as well. I hope you enjoy it!

Chritmas Afterthought: The level is OK. Nice music choice, has a christmasy theme. The eyecandy is also ok, some candy canes which are trasnslucent. Also some hills and etc. The backround was not made warped though. The layout bothered me. There were dead ends and stuff, and they could easily be fixed. The coin warp idea was cool, though occasionally a bit unfair (makingyou collect the same amount of coins for a useless ice powerup and some seekerz etc.) Then again, i just may be biased. Also, the left side is exposed, which leads to invincibility (agaisnt shooting) for anyone who stands at the far left. The ammo placement was a bit sparce. Also, as far as i can tell, there are only two coins (gold) in the whole level, which may lead to people “camping” right under them(well, this might happen to people who are unavare ofthe secret and may think there is only one coin in the level.You should of included some silver coins in the level. There was a secret, but only one (i only found one, and im to lazy to check if there are more. Also, the only way the carrot (fullenergy) is accesible is by the bonus warp, and i have failed to find any more carrots in the level. OVERALL: 7.0
Christmas Afterthought(The night one): Basically the same as the first level, but the backround and lighting are different, so is the music (Candion Music) and there are minor changes in the level. The small problems in the first level have not been fixed here (the left side being open, lack of carrots etc.)
OVERALL: I think ill rate this a 7. Im not sure though, and may change it to 7.2

Well im rating a level by the foo himself eh?
Ok since I feel pessimistic Lets talk negatives first: Gameplay is a bit annoying in some parts like where the gold coin is. It’s definetly not smooth trying to get the coin as the top left corner of that… thing ;P doesn’t have one ways, and although the stairs beneath it are one wayed ther still a bit annoying.
Eyecandy is good in most parts but dry in a few. (my levs never have enough eyecandy according to you candy addicted foos), fun how there are lots of secret areas, but it doesn’t leave much regular playing area for the people who don’t know the level well. Anyhow now that ive bloked the 5 people messaging me I can get on with this review oops *unbloks blak ninja.
Anyhow the level creation shows skill. The secrets and coin warp ideas are fun ones, and this level would be a fun level to play battle if you could somehow make lots of people join since it wouldn’t be as fun for 1 on1’s.
Anyhow a good battle lev , original ideas, and fun (very important point there)Good Job Black a very good level, Ill rate it 7.7 because thats what it is : P. I would recommend this to any foo who plays battle levs , because this one is refreshign now that were all depressed christmas is done for the year.

This pretty much perfectly summarized my thoughts. Christmas Afterthought is a strange level. It has many elements of good current levels but some of the things in it appear as if they were directly from a level from the year 2000. Eyecandy and gameplay were both good, though eyecandy was bland in some places. There were a few polls and such to keep this small-ish level interesting. I don’t have much more to say than this. I would recommend making the eyecandy a little more exotic and fixing a few flow problems. Other than that, I can’t see how this level could improve much. It’s good, though.

+ PROS: A good, solid level.

- CONS: Black Ninja bothers me to review things, so he must be troutslapped a lot. The level looks and feels strange in parts.

VERDICT: A 7 overall and a download recommendation for battle freaks. This is a fun play, though you should look elsewhere for serious battles. It’s good, solid, and quirky. And that makes it a fun battle level with a pretty low replay value. Still, it’s fun the first few times. Battle freaks will like this.
