Floating Island (WIP Title)
« on: May 21, 2010, 16:55:51 »
I'm making a FiNCK level/game, It's called Floating Island for the moment. I hope to be at least half the size of Nifflas' original game. It's going to have coins, it's going to have hard puzzles, and it's going to at least feature custom tilesets/gradients. (not sure about music yet, sorry)

Anyway, since this wouldn't be a preview without a slight spoiler, here you go:



This is one of the harder rooms! But don't worry, I like having a mix of easy and hard rooms, so hopefully it'll be enjoyable for most.

Questions, comments are welcome!

It looks difficult :P

But nice to see you're working on this!

I'm sure I'll be staring at that room for quite a while before figuring it out. The tileset has a nice simplistic design to it too. Shame you can't use inside corner rounders.
Lurk more.

Thanks! I may actually change that room a bit, even though it has a unintended shortcut that makes it much easier.

Since I feel this would be much of a post without some extra information:

- Most of the puzzles will be smaller (as in room size) condensed puzzles.
- There will be a Training ground before the first level, since players need to know how to do some tricky stuff. (lots of box-jumping) It will be option to complete the training; no coins will be missed.
- I'm not going to have a boss; likely just a hard series of puzzles.

After some thought, it seems like my rooms are very difficult even near the beginning, so it's likely I'll change a lot.

Lemme guess. You started off with the level, then halfway through you went, "hmm. Maybe I should make some easier puzzles." :P

It's so great to see all these custom levels coming out right along with the game.

I haven't messed around with the editor at all yet since I'm not done with the main game yet, but I'm already seeing in the way the game itself plays that it seems to have been designed with making it easy to customize in mind. Quite impressive.
