Description

Bowser is after Peach, once again. But this time, he’s going to kill her. It’s up to you to either help him or try to stop him.

I originally made this for Blur’s Assault the Base contest. It’s two one-sided assault levels, each are the same thing but with the teams on different sides.
The first level file has blue defending, the second has red. Switch to the next level in Controller4 to change team positions.
It follows a destroy-the-crates-in-order system. The attackers win after they assassinate Princess Peach.

After each team has played on both sides, whichever team killed Peach after the shortest time wins. The host has to check the time when they start the game and when Peach is killed.

I haven’t reviewed anything in a while, but once I saw this level I just couldn’t resist.

Honestly, I’ve never found Assault significantly attractive. However, as soon as I was told about the concept of this level – assassinate Peach (play as Bowser) or defend her (play as Mario with a gun), I just quickly fell in love with it. Quite simple, but it works.

Gameplay here is not different than most Assault levels, as all you have to do is destroy crates in order. However, the layout is confusing in such a way that makes this level unique, as you either have to bet or learn the level well to find the next crate, and not just go through a tunnel and shoot repetitively without thinking. Each area also looks and plays differently than the other, from defending a pyramid in the desert to swimming with deadly pirannas, which makes it all more interesting.

All things I’ve mentioned above, combined with a cool, Mario’ish atmosphere, make the ideal Assault level according to my standards. Shall I put it Danyjel’s way now?

(+) Has an interesting story
(+) Doesn’t use overcomplicated objectives
(+) Is nice to look at

(-) Quite confusing
(-) Hard to learn
(-) Still all about destroying crates

Download recommendation, because besides this is some kind of an improved Assault3, the fun factor obviously wins here.

Starting Comments
I just looked into this yesterday and I must say I’m impressed. Short review for my buddy ‘ere.
Gameplay
The flow is great, aswell as the map itself. It’s actually fun to travel greater distances to get to your objectives.
Gameplay = Good

Placements
The ammo is spreaded in the waiting rooms, aswell as several PU’s. Carrots are rarely found in the map itself.
Placement = Average

Objectives
The objectives are quite straight-forward. You bust a crate, you find the next one, etc. At least you get to kill Princess Peach. :)
Objectives = Good

Balance
Both teams have a fair chance of winning. The defending team has lots of weapons within reach. The attacking team has some strategic areas which can easily be turned into a heavy wave of attacks.
Balance = Great

Eyecandy
The level looks extremely nice. The background layers are very well used and each area has a different aura about it. The grasslands look all fuzzy and warm, while the underwater area just looks cold and lonely.
Eyecandy = Good

Music
Well, can’t go wrong with the Mario tune! =D
Music = Good

Originality
Although the ‘bust-crates-in-order’ objectives have been used before, I still think this one has one of the greater varieties of gameplay additions out there.
Originality = Average

Score
This submission should have a ‘good file’ logo and thus I will rate it as such.
Score = 8.5

Bonusses/substractions
None.
Added Score = 0

Download Recommendation
Yes
Further comment
This is certainly worth playing and could be used in JDC events or anything similar.

[Inappropiate rating (9) removal. This review just is not good enough at all. It barely explains why it deserves this rating – FQuist]
