Level name suggestion thread

Postby Waddle » Thu Jan 08, 2015 10:15 am

Hi guys,
The name of this topic kinda speaks for itself, but ill Just explain it here. A problem I have very often when making a level is choosing a fitting name for it. Kinda like the Music recommendation thread, except it will mostly be people helping out other people with their suggestions. One more thing, although this might be considered as backseat moderating; please be creative! If someone asks for a level name of an ice cave, saying "Icy cave" doesn't help them in any way.
Ill start this off, I need names for:
• A mechanic beach level
• A mysterious water cave
Also please be kind :3

In response to all the vague requests
Enjl wrote:My major issue with this topic right now is that the suggestions which pop up and are given to people who desperately need them are often generic because of a lack of information. If you say "I need a castle level name", there's no basis on which to make good names which are unique and sound interesting.

If people instead said "I need a castle level name. The level features roto discs and lava as main hazards, coupled with multiple fence climbing challenges; the boss is Roy Koopa", there is a lot more information to jump off of. Instead of "Creepy Castle"-like suggestions, there would be "Roy's Hot-Climb Castle"-like suggestions. WAAAAY more precise and good-sounding.

Here was just a good example:
Zant wrote:Sunshine Skies
Cloudy Cliffs
Heavenly Heights
All three of these names can potentially be used for the same sky level, as Sky assets are often mixed with grass assets. If it's daytime and the grass assets are present, those three names would just do that, describe one level.

It's true that finding alliterating level names becomes much harder once more information is given, though it's not impossible.

An example for a random alliterating sky level with See-Saw gimmick would be:
See-Saw Skyline Stroll

An example for an alliterating level for a castle level with skull raft tracks and bowser boss would be:
Bowser's Boiling Balance Base

If we took alliteration off there we'd get "Hot Ride through Bowser's Burning Base". And this one is still partially alliterating! And doesn't it sound epic?

So if you guys want more interesting level names, put some more information into your posts! I can say for myself that it's also way more fun coming up with these more specific names rather than looking into a dictionary and scrolling through all the words that start with "C" and are not commonly used.

Cloudy canyon if it's more rock than cloud, but I'm not sure about that one. Fluffy peaks?

I need a name for a volcanic level with a lot of bullet bills.

So far, I've been thinking "Flaming Bullets" or "Missile Lavaland", but I don't think they seem good.

Blazing Bullet Badlands sounds nice. But I think the Bullet Bills should be red or on fire.
Also: Catastrophic Cannon Chaos

Meltdown Madness could work.
Another could be Frigid Flame Fields
Alex48 wrote:Uhm.. a mansion-castle level with heart projectiles. And a water-forest level.
The Mansion Castle: Lovely Labyrinth Loft, also if you have Heart projectiles, you should make the level have pink tiles, unless it more like a Haunted Mansion.

Water Forest: Flowing Waters Forest or Flooded Forest



I tend to have alliteration with my Level names similar to DKC games.
I need a few names:
*Snow level names.
*Autumn level names
*A name for a Dessert level at night. I had Sweet Dreams but I want to see if I can have something better for it.
