Description

The Highlands
By Olsen

Hello there! This is a level I’ve been working on for some time, and now I present it to the community. It’s a battle level, set in the Diamondus Beta tileset.

Have fun, and please rate it. :]

Edit: Fixed the placement of a powerup, it was annoying, and hard to reach.
Edit: Fixed the bonus area, should work now.

[Do NOT rate the bonus level, it’s just something I would never consider uploading for real, so therefore I decided to just give it to you all as a bonus together with The Highlands.]

VISUAL
Layer 6/7 has some cave tiles with some trees on top, which looks very smart. This is very similar to the background in It’s over by Booshi. On the foreground layer, there are tons bushes placed randomly throughout the level, which looks very ugly. Food has been placed on the walls as well. Again, this looks ugly. Trees have been used quite well, though. In general, the eyecandy is ugly in some areas, but it looks good overall.
4/5

GAMEPLAY
The gameplay in this level is quite original. There is plenty of ammo, and not too many in any area. There isn’t too many annoying obstacles, except the occasional area that requires excessive jumping. A lot of the PU’s in the level are inside the wall and need to be got using the Electo Blaster. Spring’s are used a lot, to save you jumping, execept in some areas that need them. There is also a coin warp that requires 30 coins. The coins in the level are placed in diagonal lines randomly around the level. There is a seeker PU in the warp. Also there are hardly any carrots. In general, the gameplay is very good.
4/5

GOOD POINTS

*Nice Gameplay
*Original
*Nice level layout

BAD POINTS

*The Bushes are placed randomly
*Not many carrots

VERDICT
This is another nice level by XLM, but there are still some ways it can be improved.

FINAL SCORE
8.5

Download Recommendation!

EDIT – After more careful studying and playing, I think this level deserves a higher rating.
