Hope you’ve been enjoying the last set of levels from the roundup the other day! Continuing through my list, here are another five levels from my list of fifteen. Once again, these ones are a little rough compared to other levels I’ve featured, but they’re all awesome in their own way, and worth checking out.
“DSS Ideal X” by CHz
I almost featured this one on it’s own; it’s an extremely strong level – probably the best from this list of 15, if I’m honest. It’s bloody hard in places, but if that doesn’t put you off then I recommend it highly. It’s inventive, well designed, and has a pretty good story too.
“There and Back Again” by QualityJeverage
A level split in two paths, one easy, one hard. Both paths are good fun!
“The Sacred Grounds” by Requiem
This is a level inspired by the infamous secret hell level from Cave Story – but thankfully, not nearly as hard at the reference might lead you to believe! While it follows the structure of the Cave Story level pretty closely, it’s worth playing for its own spin on the level design. I particularly liked the interpretation of the Heavy Press miniboss!
“Jail Break” by YouKnow
A very short one next – Jail Break is a very neatly designed level with some cool ideas – including one section (in the screenshot above) that must have been a nightmare to script. This one’s not too hard either.
“Devious Dimentions” by Ferrety
This one’s set in a tiny, densely packed 5×3 world – there are a lot of little things I like about this one, but my favourite part is how it uses trinkets to encourage you to poke around in it’s various corners rather than as extra challenges.
You can get these five levels from the download below. I’ll post the final five soon!
