I made this level about 2 years ago. Back then my knowledge of level making was average. This was meant to be in a pack but I canceled it. I’m just mainly uploading this for giggles. Feel free to trash talk it. I don’t care.
A nice decent Single Player level. Backgrounds look great and I love the lightning effect.
There are some nice puzzles where you have to find Trigger Crates and also get certain ammo to proceed.
Some players might find mazes a bit annoying but all in all, a decent level.
Boss arena was not too hard as there were plenty of carrots.
Argh, frustrating. oO This level is actually very short, but the playing time is increased significantly because you either die all the time or don’t know what to do.
It uses Blur’s Castle edit and doesn’t look too shabby, with a cool background and nice tileset use. What bugs me is that the level is very hard in a frustrating way. The paths are very narrow and filled with enemies, collapse scenery, spikes and more objects of torture. There are also many barriers that have to be broken either by finding trigger crates or the right weapon to shoot them with. Those keys are often hidden evilishly, and I found myself running (and dying) around a lot until I found one of the secret passages. At one point pretty early into the level there’s a text sign reading that you have to destroy the blocks in the order 4,5,6,0. I stood around puzzled for quite some time until I realized those numbers described the weapons I had to find and use (4=seekers, 5=RF, etc.). The endboss, which came earlier than expected, was a bolly with a few tufs in an arena that made me just stomp bolly repeatedly next to the respawning carrot instead of fighting “honestly” with my gun.
I like challenges, but this one is just too frustrating. And while it won’t take too long to beat it if you try, it’s still rather annoying being lost as what to do or killed all the time.
I had prefered a longer level that is less crowded with evil stuff, so the hard parts could alternate with some less bloodthirsty ones to give the player a break.
Download if you like.
Before I forget, the level is actually hidden from the home cooked list, so it requires you to go into JCS and edit it first. I don’t get why people are doing this all the time, why do you check options if you don’t even know what they do?
Eat your lima beans, Johnny.
