Border of Life

Postby litchh » Fri Aug 05, 2016 4:42 am

Created for Haunted/Scary Level Contest long long ago :D

It's all about life and death, about border between living and dead. Border has been opened and it's not in the heavens right now. This level has 3 stars and 2 midforms in. First one is before checkpoint, second is required to get second star.

I didn't decide to place here this level before, because I found it horribly unbalanced. Right now I only fixed spellcard for the first midform, so playes gets warn about last note attack and have some time to get away from the fire line. Maybe it would be better, if I remove some boos at end, but I didn't decide yet :3

My review from the contest:

Border of Life - 6/10
Now here's an interesting take on the haunted/scary level concept. It's a Touhou level, and while it doesn't look creepy at first, it still maintains the rather creepy atmosphere, yet it doesn't throw it in your face. The main ideas here are about life and death. There are still Boos in the level, but they aren't as common as the Touhou enemies, but the way they are used brought some nice gimmicks such as the diagonal Boos in the final section. I also liked the atmosphere and the presentation of the level, as well as the projectile-dodging Touhou segments, although that's where the level's problems lie. The first Touhou segment is just before the checkpoint, and if the player isn't used to it, it can be really hard, and then they have to retrace all their steps because they died just before the checkpoint. Towards the end it basically turned into "see how far you can get dodging all these enemies" and I'm glad the level has a decent length to stop it being too hard.
