Unofficial Review of "Snowy Wood Labyrinth"
Very nice looking level, it fit well with the ice theme, and the atmosphere and background were all nice to look at. Couldve used a little bit more variation in the BGOs used, but what you did use looked good. There were some instances of minor cutoff, mostly in the Lava Bulbs (or, ice bulbs?) where they could be seen under the first layer of ice, though honestly im not sure why. It seemed as if you were using backgrounds to hide them but you did use blocks. Might have had something to do with the layer events. Whatever the case, it wasnt a huge deal. The music was nice too.
While it was a pretty fun level, but it was almost unbearably easy. Nothing really challenged me or made me stop and think. For a labyrinth it also lacked any substantial maze, besides the pipemaze in section 3 that wasnt hard either (though that may have been by chance). It wasnt from a lack of NPCs or too many powerups, it was simply too short and not 'labyrinth-y" enough. (is that a word?) Some of the switch blocks werent needed, and served only to force me to backtrack and hit it again, either to see if I just missed something (I didnt) or so I could continue. Also a side note, the sign at the start says there are 8 red coins, when I believe you used blue ones, or canned the 8RC thing altogether. either way its misleading.
I think its a neat idea, the layer switching ice/water. But I feel it needed executed better by expanding the level a bit, adding more of a puzzle feel to the level.
My (now finished) Project: The Legend of Peach
Does anyone still make project banners? Mine isn't a large project or anything, but some of them look pretty snazzy. PM me if you make them, and wouldn't mind making one for me.
