[Challenge / Very Hard] The Late Dr. Eary
« on: June 04, 2009, 06:42:27 »
An extremely small level I made. I don't feel like releasing it on the forum's temporary board, so I'm previewing it here. Basically it's about five trickjumps ranging from normal-hard to very hard-lunatic.

If you're not releasing it on the forum, where do we download it when it's done?

Check out my tilesets!

Yeah, some people are waiting to release their levels with the new archive. I don't see why though. Is it really that big of a deal to upload it here, and then on the new archive? Personally I'm not exited for the new archive at all. All it means to me is that we'll get a few levels, and maybe some tilesets, and people will probably comment unconsructive things like "Great level it was fun!" or "Lame." more often. <_< By the way, what's a trickjump?

Check out my tilesets!

Among the features the new level archive will offer are a rating system and a much easier way to sort and find levels. Or something like that. 9_9

Anyway, a trickjump is a level in which the only challenges are (often quite difficult) jumping puzzles; there is no powerup/key collection at all in the level. THey are always labeled Challenge, and usually on the harder side. They are also very easy to speedrun.

Sorry for offtopic, but this isn't worthwhile starting a new thread for:

What are the EXACT definitions for a Trickjump? I'm wanting to make one myself and I want to make sure it qualifies. Is it okay to have jump powerups as long as you've no choice but to pick them up, etc. And is it okay to have essences of a plot- just along the lines of someone saying cryptic sentences, etc. as long as it has no bearing on the level and can safely be ignored? Just wondering.

In order: no and yes.

I can't remember all the details for trickjumps; it was something LPChip came up with.

no, LPC said powerups are okay as long as you dont have to go out of your way to get them. I checked the old forum shortly after posting.

I copied them to this forum just now. For any further questions about trickjump levels, you may consult this topic.
Hopefully, this will clear up any misconceptions anyone has on the definition of trickjump levels.
