Victoria's Gift (v1.3)
« on: August 03, 2018, 07:46:42 PM »
This is a level I made for round 2 of the VVVVVV Discord server's 100 member level contest. It got 3rd place.

The version of the level specifically for this forum contains a couple of bugfixes, a few more rooms, a new, short "exit" segment, and more polish in general.

Amazing.

I found the sculpture exhibit portion to be shorter than the others, at least it felt that way during play. Nothing relevant to say aside of small nitpicks, so congrats on getting top 3 place :viridian:

Never expected something like this to come out of VVVVVV.  The visuals in particular stood out to me, especially the ingenious use of transparency for the Modern Exhibit's spikes.  At first I thought it might be gotoroom spam la Overdose.

I must say that I found "Do Not Attempt to Adjust the Picture" (15,4) to be on the difficult side, not helped by having "Think Fast" right after it with no checkpoint.

Also, the music in the Sculpture Exhibit reminded me a bit of "Dangerous Curves" by King Crimson.  That's not at all a bad thing, though!  I'm listening to The Power to Believe as I write this.

thank you! the sculpture zone has a lot of moving fast with platforms so it seems shorter. i actually made it longer to combat for the forum release but its still got the same problem :p

yeah, in hindsight "think fast" is a little cruel considering how oddly difficult "do not attempt to adjust the picture" is if you dont know the trick to it. maybe i'll update it to make it more fair eventually lol
