♪ ♫ Ruins in the Peaceful Skies ♪ ♫ (Vinesauce Entry)

Postby zlaker » Mon Jun 01, 2015 2:27 pm

So since everyone is posting their Vinesauce levels I decided to why not post mine.

This level is basically a simple sky/cloud level and there's honestly nothing much to say about it other than it's a remake of my CC7 entry; Cloudtop Castlewalls.

The one thing I noticed about this level that I really like is the the fact that the time of day changes as you progress through the level itself as does some of the environment seemingly. It's quite a cool concept to introduce since SMBX cannot change the time of day automatically like other games, Terraria for example. I haven't played it yet, but it would be cool if the enemy populous or type changes with the time of day, eg Koopas get replaced by Spinies when day turns to night etc. It certainly seems like a good sequel to Cloudtop Castlewalls. Good luck in the Vinesauce contest.

Thanks for the comment Squishy! I hope you enjoy the level when you play it.

Also I uploaded a video of the level.

Ruins in the peaceful skies unofficial review:
Let’s start with the most important: the level was very enjoyable and it has some replay value. The difficulty was fair too. It had some really cool concepts, like the no gravity blocks, the daytime change, (that I'll explain more later) etc. Graphically it didn’t have any problem. The amount and placement of coins was really good in my opinion, so I didn't feel the level empty. The NPC variety was good, true it could have 1 or 2 other enemies too. The placement for them couldn't be any better I guess. I’d say the musical choice was okay but not good. The 3 different daytimes give some life to the level, especially if the player plays slowly.
Here are 2 flaws: 1) in the section 2, after the venus fire trap there was a BGO instead of a block (it counts as a bug, because it doesn’t change the gameplay too much) 2) in the night section, if the player has a leaf, he/she can take a shortcut.
Pros:
+ Big fun factor
+ Some replay value
+ Cool concepts
+ Fair difficulty
+ Decent graphics
+ Good NPC variety
+ Perfect NPC placement
+ The daytime change gives life to the level if the player plays slowly

Nons:
| Musical choice was okay

Cons:
- A small bug in section 2
- An unwanted shortcut

Score: 9/10

Review of Ruins in the Peaceful Skies by ẓĿᾄќἝȒвὄὛ357 (nice glitchy name)

First off, the placement, atmosphere and design were perfect and I liked it so far. Music choice was good. The recolored graphics are pretty well made and it was very fun to play it. It also has some good replay value. Purple crystal blocks are very useful for killing emenies. The daytime (from day to night) was very cool concept. I found that there aren't any errors in this level. The 4th section was a bit tricky, especially here, when after killing parakoopa and taking crystal mushroom, you suppose to go back and take this tricky jump (this doesn't affect the score, however). In total, this level was masterpiece and I totally enjoy it a lot.

Good:
- Music choice.
- Perfect atmosphere.
- Perfect design.
- Perfect placement.
- Cool concepts.
-- No errors.
- It's fun to replay it.

Bad:
- None.

10/10

I like the cloud CGFX. May I use them?
the design is great, especially the Afternoon section. But the floating pillars looks awkward in my opinion.
also congratulations, for your 3rd place in Vinesauce contest 2015!

It's a standalone level which you play in the level editor. Would be a waste of time just to make a wld file for 1 level.
