[Challenge][Hard] Advanced
« on: July 06, 2011, 07:07:49 »
After about 4 hours in a row of working on this, it's done! It's a very short level, and all the graphics and music are done by myself. The screenshots practically give away the gimmick.

It's amazing how effective these simple graphics are. Excellent programming, it felt completely natural on the little screen. It was a little disappointing that you didn't really only have three lives, but I never would have finished this if I had to restart every 3 deaths.

reminds me a lot of Jerom's gameboy level. Oh man gotta try this out *downloading*

edit: very nice level. good custom objects and nice challenge. Only a bit short and no proper ending but still excellent level.

Yeah, I had to churn it out really quickly so I didn't have time to make it too much longer, but at least I got the concept down. I might make an expansion off of it sometime in the future.

Very pretty, but screens 994 and 995 were way too difficult without a save point between them, easily putting this at least 'Super Hard' difficulty in my opinion.

It's a shame, because the programming was great and I loved the style and graphics. Those two screens frustrated me too much.

IMO this level is not at all as complex or as challenging as any Very Hard level. Some jumps may be tricky, but I honestly had no trouble with this level. Then again, I've underestimated difficulty before..

Absolutely wonderful! Like the others, I wish it were a bit longer; and it would be incredible if you could add an enemy or two. But the level is a stunning achievement anyway.

Agree. I played your other levels and those are very hard and this is not even near that hard. Don't forget the safety levels (But those are not very hard, they are very lunatic  X-P)

I'm going to start a longer level of this style, but I gotta finish Dark Sea 2 first before I do any other projects.

I think an extension would be nice. I liked the concept but it was a bit too short.
Notice how the screen said "Level 1" somewhere. You might want to make a certain amount of levels that
people can enjoy.

Very nice level, though I have to agree with Talps on this level being very hard.
