WOT?!?!?!? I, Turtwig, am actually REVIEWING a LEVEL?!?!?!? What is this madness?!?!?!?
Yep, since I have more time on my hands I thought I'd get back into reviewing stuff. So here goes...
UNOFFICIAL REVIEW of BOWSER'S LAST STAND by WHALES HEY
Honestly...this is probably one of the most unreasonable levels I've ever played. You get very few power-ups, first of all, and there are THREE boss fights to worry about. The first boss is a big Bowser reskin of Ludwig Von Koopa. That doesn't sound so bad, but 1) you're in an enclosed space 2) you can't spin jump on the Bowser sprite 3) falling boulder spam and 4) you have to hit Bowser with an SMB2 bomb...which spawns EVERY 12 SECONDS.
So this is really an endurance battle, and a VERY unfair one at that. Also, the transition to the second boss is only possible with Luigi (if you're on the left side of the room).
The second boss is a Wart reskin, and unfortunately it's the worst of the three. Bowser is standing all the way on the left of a big room, and the SMB2 bomb generator is all the way to the right. So it's extremely difficult to hit Bowser with a bomb before it explodes. In addition, there are Rinkas everywhere, and they don't stop, even AFTER you kill Bowser.
The last boss is a standard SMB3 Bowser fight. It's the easiest of the three, but also the longest. You have to have Bowser destroy some blocks above a pipe, which SMB2 bombs come out of, and it takes FOREVER to kill him with those. And once again, there are Rinkas everywhere that don't EVER stop.
I recognize a lot of the graphics you used, as they are in the same GFX pack that I used to use
This level looks pretty much the same throughout, so I can't really say that much here. However, I DO have some complaints:
1. Item Room is not a fitting song for the first section. The background is also VERY out of place for a Mario game.
2. The Red Hammer Bros have the wrong death effect.
3. The section leading to the first boss fight just looks...bad. The door is AWESOME, though.
4. This is probably my own taste, but that Bowser reskin is really ugly :/
5. The "earthquake" effect is really cheesy since you can see the POW blocks falling.
Other Comments: idk
Overall 2.5/10 (The Trash Can)
Sorry man, but this level is just SO unfairly difficult. Everything really needs to be toned down a bit.
