[Challenge] [Normal] [Small] Late to the party
« on: October 31, 2019, 19:42:32 »



[ Download the level ] (file size: ~3.28MB)

Just a very short Halloween-themed adventure. Juni's taking a bit too long trying out her Halloween costume and she's late to the big party in town. Will she be able to find her way back before she misses the event...?

Features a bunch of custom content (including a remixed version of the tileset I made for The Bluebird of Happiness) and a secret bonus ending. KS+ is not required, but there are a couple graphical effects that will only be visible if you use it. Alternatively, you can play the level in vanilla KS if you prefer a cleaner, unfiltered look. Your choice.

Had to rush this one quite a bit because it was something I suddenly decided to make just a few days ago. Hopefully it works as intended :P2 Happy Halloween!

Spent a couple minutes trying - and repeatedly failing - to triangle-jump on the screen in the screenshot, only to figure out on the very next screen that the pumpkins are bouncy. 10/10, would misinterpret again.

Also, i'm gonna assume

because honestly that makes the entire level, like, a dozen times better.

That was indeed my intention (and I'm not saying that just to get that sweet 12x multiplier :P2 ).

I played this yesterday and then forgot to leave a comment!  :oops:

The level was pretty much great from start to end, although...

@canteven: Glad you enjoyed it!

@Talps: As long as you are fashionably late (instead of plain regular late), all is ok 8)

A little late to the party, but I enjoyed this one a lot. Smirked at the reference to Saving Thalanill X)

The twist ending was wonderful!
