Give me a 10.
Gry don’t eat me for being two weeks late with this.. please
Visual Appeal – 3 out of 5
Good enough for me. Nothing really got changed in the resize, and the original semi managed to look somewhat alright, too. The author even tried to shrink the machine in the lower right corner (which I presume to be the semi conductor?), which looks quite
minisemi2, though, has got some additional eyecandy all over the level, such as layer 4 background bricks (which shouldn’t end with the shaded tiles when not connecting to a wall/ceiling), a better background (nothing too noticable though, except from layer 8 is now textured), and, well, foreground layers at the bottom. They feel a bit overdone and clutter the bottom area if anything. (I suppose Saphir made the eyecandy changes?) Though, next time you resize a level, do align layer 4’s size with the actual level size, because it looks tacky.
Overall, the eyecandy’s nothing too much of a deal here. After all, nobody will really play this for something else than competition, and you don’t really care about the looks in competitive play.. right?
Playability – 4 out of 5
What can I say? The level seems to still function pretty well, balance wise. By jumping out of the base areas (which is the shortest route from and to a base) you can get from base A to base B in about 3.5 seconds, and vice versa, which is kind of fair game for me.
As for other routes.. now you can double jump up to both bases, which kind of negates the other ways of accessing those. Getting down a base and running/jumping up the another does take more time, too, and if you mess up somewhere it may cost you a point.
Other than that, not much is to be discussed here, is it? I really don’t like reviewing level remakes and the changes :(Summary
I hate writing this section and I’m experiencing the writer’s block recently, so :) suffice to say this is a good resize. With horrid music.
EDIT: the sun is burning down los angeles
Heh, I was watching one of the ep vids yesterday then I heard this today ;P. A la short review:
Perfectly downsized. Way too cramped tho.
Fairly good, no real changes.
Makes it a bit easier for Jazzers and Loris, but too easy for Spazzers.
Mini Semi 2
Pretty much the same but a tad bit poorer. Still good.
A lot of things are added in, and to good effect. I liked the background the most because it looked 3D and complemented the tileset.
Same as Mini Semi but nicer eyecandy than the first.
Total Score: 7.2
Download Reccomendation: Yes
Comments: Suggested for all that find the original Happy Semiconductor CTF too open and spacious. Hilarious music choice as well – I’ve always thought of the Pokémon theme songs good JJ2 ones with all of the Pokémon-ish references taken out!
