[challenge/maze][hard][medium] Gustav's son
« on: February 04, 2013, 19:56:33 »
Ladies and gentlemen,
let me show you my new level, Gustav's son. It features 14 custom tilesets, 7 custom music tracks, naughty boy locked in the cellar and story almost completely copied from one well-known level.
Hope you will like it anyway.
Download it here
fixed version

Oh man this level was fun! It had a very similar feel to Gustav's Daughter but was unique in its own way. I did notice a couple small errors like non-solid walls or solid background objects but nothing severe enough to break the level or distract from the experience.

Everyone should definitely play it!

Thank you.
I will make new version as soon as someone finds even more errors.

Hmm... I can't seem to download this.  It gives me an error, telling me it can't find the file.

That's odd, I swear it was working! The issue is the / at the end of the URL, here is a working link.

Looking forward to playing this! By which I mean, I don't have time right now... but soon!

Thank you Sergio. When iI made that link, it worked for the first time, but then it broken (I don't know why, because I thought I've followed instructions in the help properly) and I had no time to repair, because I had to go for a lunch.
I guess that everyone (including me) is playing cosmic Meltdown now. I should have chosen another day to release this.

Nice level,and a good successor to Gustav's Daughter.I liked the atmoshpere a lot.Nice diffilcuty level,too.
I have some reports:
-Wallswims if you use the umbrella to fly leftwards from the old "GTFO of my cave guy"
-Some grammatical errors,one is in a textbox in Sky City(an "a" was missing) and in the ending(reward was spelled revard)

Everything else in alright,I think.

This is a bit of a problem. The way the screens are designed make you think it's a jumping puzzle and you should go there at some point to get a powerup, so a lot of people WILL go there.

Edit: Also, there is no clear indication that you got the hologram powerup. You're just supposed to know that pressing down did something.

I have made fixed version, get it
here
.
@straightflame: Is it so hard to press Q to find out what happened ? There is also hint you get at Frieda's house, so I don't think this is a problem. I have seen this way of getting power-up in other levels. However, you an MasterF are right about the rock above the hermit's cave. I've fixed the wallswim.

Thanks everyone for feedback

I downloaded yours first!

Though as I don't really have time to play either right now, it might be a small consolation. Either way, I'm excited about this! hopefully get round to it tomorrow, and I'll let you know my feelings.

It's funny because I knew I had the hologram power after the shift because of the hints given by Frieda. I thought it was pretty obvious that is what happened.

I'm not playing it right now either. :P

You are reviewing old version, in the fixed one, you get reward.
While most of the tilesets are quite nice, and I adore the cloud COs, I have to only rate this as 6 because the main area you start out in is so ugly, in my opinion.  I'm not sure what the level creator was going for with that, especially compared to the other areas in this level.
I am not fully satisfied by this area myself, but I would not describe it as ugly. But I am not offended, it is useful to know what to improve. And I am glad that your reviews are back, because it is fun to read them (when you are writing about someone else's really bad level).

Don't worry.  I didn't dock you for any misspellings.  I'd only do that if it was illegible.

It's only natural that my very negative reviews are funnier.  People enjoy seeing bad levels torn apart far more than great levels being praised.
