Exploding a cake is a level made for Knytt Swapsies.

ixMarcel made the first 20 screens, and i made all the screens that aren't the ones ixMarcel made.

Well done! I gotta say, "scary and tense" are good adjectives to describe this level! It was never frustrating or overly difficult.

The ending was a little abrupt, but it was really compelling throughout. There were some incredibly memorable and well designed screens across both parts, and the use of the shadow overlays made them seem extra fresh. Good work!

Great job StraightFlame! The aesthetics are very nice, you didn't let me down (I loved the dark transition before the cutscene). You perfectly captured the creepy, ununsettling atmosphere I wanted this level to have. The challenges in your screens were pretty good too.

That's exactly what I wanted  :^^:.

This was a really nice level. Definitely felt like I was exploring a cave. Had a tense atmosphere without things being difficult. I really like the different amounts of darkness throughout the different rooms. It was just the right length too. If it went on too long it would have been stale because of how similar everything was.

This was a pretty neat dark cave level :D  You guys made good use of the different overlays to make the scenario feel mysterious and claustrophobic at times. I also liked the choice of gradients and tilesets, both based on cool colors (blue/green). My only gripe would be the enemy placement on some screens (e.g. the jump on x1005y1011, which relied a bit too much on luck for my tastes), but overall I quite enjoyed it :)
