This is my entry for Ragnarok’s ODT Level Contest.
I actually started a level using this idea/name many years ago, but I finished only a third of that level back then. Afterwards I lost the level with my old hard drive, and so I didn’t have the motivation to start over with it again, as I was planning to make it a rather big level.
However Ragnarok’s contest inspired me to make another attempt, this time scaling the level suitable for duels too. In the end the design came out quite differently than the original one would probably have. Still, I personally am satisfied about the result, but if the level ever makes it to be played in a tournament, I’ll be curious to see/hear how people like this level.
It’s a level that features the theme ‘Floating Fortress’, consisting from a total of ten thousand tiles (100×100 in size.) Also the level consists of two ‘towers’ that are separated only by a small battleground, but carried by nothing, which can only mean one thing=PITS! But don’t worry, lite-version comes with non-lethal pits for those who can’t stand the real pits.
Disabling textured background or using 8-bit colors may make the background distracting. Low/High detail-modes both work properly.
Tileset is Windstorm Fortress I by BlurredD, and music Impulse(impulse.s3m) by Timelord. Enjoy!
EDIT 1: Made several graphical-, flow- and other fixes/tweaks.
EDIT 2: One more graphical fix.
EDIT 3: Replaced the EXIT-signs with arrow-ones.
A very good level with a nice flow, good gameplay, interesting ammo placement, a great theme, good music and overall a great atmosphere. It also comes in two versions, which is a very good thing in my opinion (I prefer the non-lethal one though, just so you know :P). Oh and it has OVER 9000 tiles; the level might be too big for duels, but it’s a great level anyway! You get a nice 8.6 and a DL rec from me, have fun!
Eat your lima beans, Johnny.
