Hello everyone. :D

So this is one part a test of one of my tilesets and another part 3 Square entirely reskinned. I don't think I'll reskin the other ones but I may repost them here as well.

Just played through Dim Square. Pretty neat! The tileset gave it a creepy feel, sorta.

Wish I had some kind of music to back up the new tileset but sadly music is not my area of expertise.

I love the original and its sequels, but I have to disagree with the others. I thought the new tileset made long jumps unnecessarily complicated (black water vs. black tiles), and it wasn't creepy enough due to the cute little circles pattern... I think the tileset from Evangelos's maze level - http://nifflas.lpchip.nl/index.php?topic=1885.0 - would've worked beautifully here (and I don't think anyone has used it since Evangelos...), if you were going for a creepy feeling, but then there's just one color there, whereas you need more.

Just curious, are you planning to make any new levels? The four puzzle levels I know of are absolutely beautiful; I wish you'd make something new.

:D Thanks for the compliments!

I'm not sure how the tileset makes the jumps any more complicated. It's the same distance and the water is actually lower in the dim side. The walls are also unclimbable so there is no saving yourself if you do miss the jump regardless unless you have double jump which makes the jump simple anyway.

The tileset wasn't really going for creepy so much as a fun (to make) / abstract / ~flexible tileset.

I remember that level.

The tileset could work, but I kind of like working with my own to get better at making them and such.

Somewhat? I have some ideas and concept for levels I'd like to try but I've needed tilesets and / or COs for them that has kind of put me off so they've been somewhere on my large and frequently employed back burner. :/

They're both good skins. My only issue with 3 Square is that the "Ghost?" blocks (that appear once you pick up the eyeball power) are somewhat hard to see. Just a minor issue, though.

The same "Ghost" blocks are much see to notice in Dim Square.
