all time favourite levels - only-the-very-best-list
« on: January 26, 2011, 12:49:03 »
As a Knytt Stories player for several years, I want to express my thanks for this greatest platform-explorer to Nifflas and to all those great levelmakers - I had many, many hours of playing fun - thank you so much! Since I can't pay anything, and since the other p(l)ayable games from Nifflas for me are not as good as KS (sorry about that), I want to do some service to the community instead: A list of levels - only the very best levels - wich stayed installed over the time and will stay as my all-time-favourites in my Knytt Stories copy. This could also be a good advice for novices, as this levels also show the qualities and possibilities of KS often better than some short or experimental levels - the problem is, you have to find the good ones, so here you are! Please excuse that I do not have the time to list direct download links, but if you go to the http://www.knyttlevels.com/ archive you should find the most with Ctrl+F. And surely I want you to add some of your absolute favourites, that I haven't discovered yet!!! So here is my list (as they appear in KS program list):

I'm always grateful for these lists as I never have the time to sift through all the levels to find the good ones myself.  Thanks!

Yes, thanks for the list, it's pretty impressive. Here are other threads of favorite levels:

There may be even more :P2 It would be very good if they were combined into a single sticky thread.

That's not a bad idea though it might be a bit overwhelming. It would help if people offered a comment on each recommendation; just a paragraph maybe, or even a sentence.

I guess this would be a good starting point for me if I ever decide to start playing knytt stories. :)

If? I can't recommend enough that you do, and soon. Quite seriously, it's one of the most beautifully elegant pieces of game design I've ever seen, let alone played. Consider it a favour to yourself  ;)

I am going through all of these one by one. Was there only one Sohe and the Rrokked episode made?

I compared the list to Knyttlevels.com. Then, I went and found links to as many of the missing levels as I could:
Afar (Chironex) It's part of the Third Party Pack.
Frozen Mountain 2 (Drakkan)
A Knytt in Time (egomassive)
Shipwrecked (egomassive)
Ascension (Farik)
Chamber of Trails (Fredulom) It's part of the Third Party Pack.
Insurance (James Vaughan)
Luminous City (Jeppo)
Jerom (Marine)
Plotless (Joshua Green) It's part of the Third Party Pack.
An Underwater Adventure (Nifflas) It's in the A Strange Dream expansion.
This Level is Unfinished (Nifflas) It's in the A Strange Dream expansion.
Above and below... the waterfall (RH)
My Super Secret Basement (Sergio Cornaga)
Blockland (TheoX) It's part of the Third Party Pack.
The Little Gothic Doll (Velvet)

These are still missing. If someone could, we have taken up the practice of loading missing levels on the archive before they are lost. I would, but I don't have any of them:
Xeia (Chironex)
Grand Challenge (Introversity)
To Travel so Far (Kalm Traveller)
Tower of Babylon (Mateus Dalmedico Gessoni)
Swept away (Mitch Fletcher)
Shoot For The Moon (Pesty)
Skyfalls (Pip)
Lost in the Labyrinth (Stebbins)
Don't eat Mushrooms (UncleSporky) Is this Don't Eat the Mushroom? If so it's on Knyttlevels.com
Panacea (vdweller)

Thankyou for all that work, ego  :D
Unfortunately, I don't have any of the ones that're still missing. We might just have to wait, for some of them, until Goog's able to pass on his collection.

Unless the person who had them on the original list still has the levels. (I mean solenman, of course.)

Thank you egomassive - you rock! Did upload the missing ones. What do you think, should I upload your entire list to knyttlevels.com?

Thanks for loading the missing ones. As for loading the others, I guess it really depends on weather they're in jeopardy of being lost. The thing is, once the new archive arrives, I think all the levels will need to be reposted. There's no sense in doing unnecessary work.

Let's see, Jerome (Marine) is just a link on Minmay's personal webspace (Thanks Minmay). It looks like Above and below... the waterfall (RH) is on a site that hasn't been updated since 2007 is very stable and has been recently updated. The rest seem to have stable links.

Did load up these both, now all are safe - more or less. When will new archive start?
