[Challenge, normal] Pointless
« on: December 28, 2012, 03:02:27 »
This is one of first levels I've ever made and it was never planned to be released. My brother accidentally found it on his computer (which used to be mine), replayed it and told me it is not so bad. So I've made several changes (there was no ending and it was full of green chompers and grey spiky earth beings - but I left there some). It is in the level archive now.
To make it more atractive, here are some screenshots:

For those of you who don't want to search through the entire archive, assuming that you read this in 2014 and this isn't on top of the list anymore, and Ctrl + F doesn't exist anymore: Here it is.

Aaaaanyways, here is a list of things i liked:

  • The fact that you just didn't give a sh... erm, that you didn't care about the story. The thing we got instead is not really original, but somehow still funny.
  • The level design was pretty good for something made entirely out of boredom. I'd like to see one where you actually tried.
  • You used a cloud tileset as a marble ceiling. Rather creative and saves a bit of time and effort, and just goes to show how much you can actually do with the tilesets that you get with the game.
  • And last but not least...

...erm, actually, that's it.

It can very well be considered a bit above average. It lacks length, original tilesets and a story, but aside from the fact that those are all overrated, the game makes up for it. By having MARBLE CEILINGS. I hope you get bored a lot more often.

I like it. It looks good, and the difficulty is just right for the casual feel.

Thanks everyone, especially to Straight flame for making url to archive (I would do it myself, but my browser did not show me exact address of my level in archive).

I knew I'd typed out a guide to doing that somewhere around here...

Edited for your level, then;
Download Pointless
Code: [Select]
[url=http://knyttlevels.com/levels/Polana%20-%20Pointless.knytt.bin]Download Pointless[/url]
For future reference, you right-click on the Download link and choose 'Copy Shortcut' (in I.E.) or 'Copy Link Location' (in Firefox). That will copy the URL of the file to your clipboard from where you can Paste it into your post. You can use the syntax I gave you above to make it neat and tidy, though the forum will automatically display a full URL as a hyperlink.
i.e. http://knyttlevels.com/levels/Polana%20-%20Pointless.knytt.bin

Looks good, I'll add it to my things to play list.  A toddler, new born, and too many other projects have prevented me from playing games lately.  DX

This was pretty good! A little hard for Normal, I think, but the difficulty was still manageable.

Yes, keys are hidden (and not very well, I thought - probably you did not go everywhere you can).
Spoiler: Where are the keys: (click to show/hide)

This was a nice little level! It was fun to sit down and play for a few minutes. It also has some replay value because of the secrets, which were very nice. I really enjoyed the secret ending too!

I don't really get the complaints about it being too challenging either. It had just enough enemies and things so one couldn't just rush through without appreciating the scenery. The only time I died was from one of the little spikey creatures but it made me laugh. It made the level more fun in a way.

Thanks
Originally there were lots of them, but I decided to put them away, because they turned m level to something annoying.

Haven't finished this yet, but I have to say I really love the area at the beginning - so green and positively teeming with life! Lovely use of layering, too.
