VVVVVV Levels / 4-Way Pandemonium ~ The Return of Co-op VVVVVV
« on: December 30, 2018, 04:30:52 PM »
From the guy who brought you the 2-player VVVVVV level, I now present to you the 4-player VVVVVV level !!!1!!1!!1! (god help my soul)

Plot: the crew is broke, so Viridian (Player 1), Vitellary (Player 2), Vermillion (Player 3), and Verdigris (Player 4) have signed up to partake in an experiment in exchange for money.




Playtime is estimated to be around 30mins ~ an hour Upon further analysis, playtime is probably around 2-3 hours at the LEAST.


1. for starters, find 3 other people who are willing to play (this is un-ironically the hardest part of the whole setup)
2. Use some sort of communication software (Discord, Skype, it doesn't really matter) so you can all speak with each other. Don't screenshare, it'd ruin the experience.
3. Download the zip file. In the zip file, you will see files titled 4waypandemonium_p[NUMBER HERE].vvvvvv. One person for each file. That's your version of the level. Replace tiles2 with the one in the zip.
4. The MASTER file, 4 player guide.txt, and 4 player maze paths.txt are just tools you can use if you guys get stuck.
5. Everyone boots up VVVVVV and plays.

Simple, right???????????

NOTE: This level is experimental, so there's a good chance I messed up somewhere whilst making this. Please report any bugs/glitches you come across while playing the level.

and that's it, go have some fun.

also happy 2019

the precision platforming in Scaffold and Circumstance was way harder than anything else in the level and just not fun
I had to use the editor to fix it so I could continue
I personally found them pretty easy, and Balneor doesn't seem to have any problems either, so I'll just let those stay. get better at flipping noob

in Beanstalk, you can repeatedly press action to go through the gravity line
it'd be smart to use warp tokens instead or put the line much farther down so the glitch doesn't work

there are spikes on the bottom row in The Sound of Running Water but none on the bottom in Circumstance

the terminal in Turning Point does nothing
That's intentional. Nott every terminal has to do something, they can also act as set pieces to INCREASE MOOD

if you re-trigger the terminal in progressing toward uncertainty, it plays the whole cutscene (it should probably just play the last part where it destroys the lines)
Now it says a funne thing

in progressing toward uncertainty you can use the aforementioned gravity line glitch to get stuck
I'm lazy so I'll keep it like that. For starters, you have to put in EFFORT to get stuck there. Also, one can just press r to get out. Just don't be stupid?

that being said, this level is kind of a masterwork when it comes to difficulty. it's extremely good at pushing the player just a bit out of their comfort zone.
I found myself thinking that if I designed it, it'd be a lot less challenging, but the way you designed it constantly caught me off guard!

honestly, for players better at the game than me it's a must play for sure
keep up the fantastic work!
thanks man

(Pic 1 & 2, left to right / top to bottom) : It's possible to collect the trinket and intentionally die using R, skipping the forced backtrack. Should definitely be fixed.
Thanks, fixed that

(Pic 3 & 4) : Going from the checkpoint to the left side visually seems impossible, the same thing can be felt when trying to get to the top in the 4th pic. They're definitely both possible, but some players might be stuck because of it, so perhaps making these location look less hostile as a whole will solve it ?
left these unchanged, as long as you don't scrape against the blocks when flipping, it's not that hard of a maneuver. Players will figure it out eventually (I hope)

(Pic 5) : Just a wonder, is it actually possible to get inside this 3-tiles wide corridor ?  The overall room layout gives this impression, but the actual way is at the top, near the checkpoint... Maybe I haven't tried enough, but it'd be cool if it really was accessible.
changed so that it's possible now

(Pic 6 & 7) : Going to the right grav° line, we have to move at the right time from the middle.. except there is no gap between the bottom line and spikes, making for some uncontrollable deaths sometimes... although I get why it would make for some difficulty. Here's a tweaked version of the same section in the 7th pic, maybe easier but better that way.. ?
Left unchanged, I played through the room 5 times and didn't experience any problems.

this level is actually super clever holy

especially the part with the lasers, that was really interesting. i'd really like to see you do more stuff with this laser mechanic later

some things:

- in the very first room, perhaps you should get rid of the playtesting unlock script lol
- making the solution for a puzzle require knowledge of other games is kinda mean (i havent played zelda sooo)
- there are a lot of holes everywhere, whats up with these
- deactivating the purple lasers after getting the cyan lasers deactivated is impossible??? (unless im missing something) had to cheat my way through it
- the super fast boxes are cool and all, but they get annoying quick
- maze of summons is a super cool room

the level could use some polish, but the concepts presented are actually really interesting.

hope to see more cool stuff from you!

Room Layout (4.5 points):

The rooms are nice, the mix of area tiles is nice-looking. The custom graphics are also nice (although the orange death things in the Vandara section are kind of weird)

I took half a point off because you re-used quite a number of rooms from the game/the prototype, I know it's for the whole time travel concept, but it just feels a bit lazy to me.

Gameplay (4 points):

Those coins you used in the prototype section were cool, I didn't know you could use those.

Verdigris' section is amazing. The concept is great (and also reminds me of a certain flash game). Like WSM mentioned, the rest of the level doesn't live to how awesome the gimmick was. Turning into a square was pretty cool too, great use of I.S. Also was a fan of the "enlarged" section.

Trinkets (1 points):

The trinkets are ok, but some of them are a lot harder than others.

8.5/10 + 1 (for trinkets)

Solid level with cool concepts, good stuff :)

found this old unfinished level whilst digging through my levels folder, so i finished it up and here it is. (no screenshots because i am lazy)

11x7 (all rooms filled)

I wonder if it's possible to tell when I picked this level back up just from the room design...
