Hello im just uploading Epitome II made by sykeo but i give credits to Merlyn for making such an awesome level which inspired me to make a 2nd one (:. I have included the dark and light tileset versions so all players can enjoy. Best Wishes -sykeo :)
Looks really good at a glance, way better than the original level at least. Some tactical spots, interesting placement and layout, doesn’t seem TOO imbalanced. I quite like it, great job.
Not too keen on some of the seeker placement though, but the rest seems in order.
A nice small and fast level, perfect for duels. In my opinion there is a bit too much ammo, but besides that it has a very good gameplay!
Well well, Epitome II, this creates some expectations.
I actually expected a remake, but since this wasn’t the case and you aren’t Merlyn, why are you calling this Epitome then? Basicly the only thing these levels have in common is the tileset, though you could say the blue base, RF powerup and the carrot are on quite the same position as in Epitome, although the layout is way different, seems like false packaging to me.
When I look to the grades from the quick reviewers I get a bit frustrated, (I am not the only one btw) nowadays many maps get overrated. The original Epitome only got an 8.1 and was way better than this. This is certainly not a bad level, but its nothing special. Many paths are too small to allow a good flow, except for the area above the carrot which is suddenly quite big, but without a real purpose.
In the lower left corner of the level is a text saying: Epitome II: created by Merlyn. I don’t think he created this map, so just put your own name there.
The background is also different to Epitome and I think it is moving a bit too fast, having a negative effect on the playing experience. The foreground and layer 4 are alright, although they have little special to offer. I wouldn’t necessarily recommend this for downloading. Perhaps this level could be used for a duel tournament, although they mostly pick the traditional levels, which are out of this level’s league.
Final Grade: 6.7
So there it is, quite a harsh review compared to what Epitome got. Though, looking at your previous uploads I think this is not a bad delivery from you. Just nothing special really, I would consider changing the name to something original.
Eat your lima beans, Johnny.
