Description

so yeah, i’m releasing this now.

check the readme for credits, info and history :p

p.s. rag – sorry that i didn’t wait for your opinion about the updated version. i just didn’t want till you fix your internets (which will probably take some time, and then my level will be kind of too old to release). just review this and I’ll know your opinion ;)

edit: added one textstring (now playing) and fixed one thing in the readme

edit2: tweaked the background

The eyecandy is excellent. I do love what you have done and fixed in the background.
The textures have been done nicely. The gameplay is excellent when I hosted it everyone seemed to enjoy it. The music doesn’t really fit but theres not reason to down the score becuase of that.

Floating island pwns !. I reccomend for download it is indeed fun

As promised after playing your beta version, I’ll write a review for this level though a little later than expected. After playing the final, and updated (as it seems) version of your level, my thoughts remain as they were..

GAMEPLAY
First thing I noticed when playing the beta days ago, was the gameplay being comparable to classic concepts, thus meaning that this level won’t give you an original experience, though no fun is wasted. The pit in the down-middle area of the level is most likely the most ‘original’ part to be found. Players have to get the powerup without any major trouble around or else they’ll be sucked down into the pit by the surrounding winds. Overall gameplay is practically linair and involves running/jumping in corridor styled areas finding/killing each other.

EYECANDY
Nothing too special, except for the background, as it will probably receive different feedback. Personally, I kind of like the ‘towers with transparent windows’ except for the downside (I suppose it’s the ground holding the towers). Walls include animated tube sort of things we know from levels like E-Prime, still looks good even for this level style. Other eyecandy is pretty minor, but nothing hurts the eye and that’s generally the best thing for my eyecandy score. ;)

EVENT PLACEMENT
It’s practically hard to run out of weapons in this level, as weapon pickups are spread all over the place and you’re likely to run into an powerup which is easy to get (not including the Seeker PU in the pit). And it looks like this level is meant for some fast fragging, as you’re likely to run into easy to get carrots as well.. Envoirement events are as it should, and the palette (not really part of the level though) gave me a good feeling with the style.

RATING
Hellforge is an average small-sized battle level involving ordinary gameplay aspects. It does however create and specialize the tileset’s possible atmosphere. I don’t recommend this for duels, as the amount of pickups won’t fit for that. And for the background, you’ll love it or hate it.. I still recommend downloading as this will add a good level for your ‘public hosting’ collection. A 7.5 for the ‘alrightness’ of the level!

Overall, a small, simple level. with a average eyecandy that is not perfect yet. (even with a english dictionary i can’t explain exactly how), the buildings are looking odd.. the 1 colored translucent tile shaped in the building looks a bit unrealistic and weird to me.. further things, the level is very simple to learn. nothing really sucks about the gameplay, it’s actually pretty good. and i like the original parts like the seeker power up with wind speeds that let u fall in pits.
some bad things what i think could be better.. that’s the placement and the amount off it. i think 4 carrots is to much for a pretty small level like this, so i also think about the power ups. 4 power ups is to much for a level like this size. and 3 off the 4 pu’s can be sidekicked, which gives you full ammo. which is imo to much.

the + and – points i give this level download recommendation, because after all it’s really average, and fun playing.

(pj did a good job on the pallette)
