An epic, sprawling level with multiple endings, an in-depth plot and some beautiful environments! I fear any screenies would ruin it though, so here's the link:

DOWNLOAD

Enjoy!

[10:55:52] <Dataflashsabot> meh?
[10:56:03] <Mr_Monkey> The level
[10:56:21] <Dataflashsabot> heh, :P
[10:56:27] <Mr_Monkey> It seems rather pathetic, even for a joke

[10:57:27] <Mr_Monkey> Where's the joke in it? It's like promising someone a cake while snickering to yourself, giving that person a piece of dirt, and laughing your rear end off while that other person just stares blankly at you and raises an eyebrow.
[10:58:10] <Dataflashsabot>   Naaaaah.

Awwww. I'd made this because I was bored, posted it on #niffchat, decided to post it on the forums, decided to make a joke out of it. Yay farik, you gave it away, well done!! Mr_Monkey, you posted the behind-the-scenes to cement it, aren't you clever!

*sigh*

Just wanted to make a joke :(

That was really pointless. I don't get the joke at all.

Check out my tilesets!

Try playing googoogjoob's level and learn from it. This was pretty lame in comparison.

Yeah this level really doesn't try hard enough. First the description,

An epic, sprawling level with multiple endings, an in-depth plot and some beautiful environments! I fear any screenies would ruin it though...

is really pretty suspicious to start with. The vague, generic description of a supposedly great level is a dead giveaway. No one really actually posts levels with stuff like this.

Some misleading screenies (maybe like of screens technically in the level, but not accessible in normal playing) would help. Saying screenies would ruin it is also a giveaway; it really sets up the idea in the mind of the reader that the level is a one-screen joke level.

Then the level itself. Nothing happens. No intro or ending, just several dull, tedious screens. The moment you get past the absent intro and see the first screen, it confirms all the suspicions about the jokeiness of the level. The best joke-y levels work by subverting the player's expectations. This doesn't do that. The only possible expectations that the player could gather are from this forum post- nothing in the level sets the player up. But, of course, anyone with much experience with user-made levels (especially joke levels) is going to see right through the post.

So, try harder next time.
good bye

nice music.....
I think the problem here is that you do lots of levels, but you don't put in much effort into them.
some people do fantastic levels  once a year or so.
but you don't have to listen to me...
