The Nasty Drop
« on: July 29, 2011, 04:19:16 AM »


A short level with a thing for gravity. Shouldn't be too hard really.

You can download it over at https://sites.google.com/site/gnomefiles/the-last-drop

Enjoyment: 7/10
Aesthetics: 6/10
Novelty: 7/10
Difficulty: 6/10
Room names: 7/10

I liked the whole one-direction concept of this level, and some of the room names were pretty funny.  The difficulty was pleasant too.  I don't have much more to say about this one.  A short and sweet little level; bite-site VVVVVV, if you will. :vitellary:

@ PJBottomz: But, wouldn't the teeth feel a bit hairy then?

@ TheoX: Enlightening feedback indeed. Thanks a ton!

Not a bad level at all. There's a part in the room after themouth where you can get stuck if you hug the right wall. Other than that, nice work.

Thanks Stampy, but could you please be a bit more specific? I've failed to find the bug you mentioned and it does sound irritating.

Sure, no problem, it's these ledges here:



If you land on one of those you flicker between that screen and the one above.  Just lowering them by one would fix it.

That was pretty nifty, I liked how you decided to choose a concept and build around it. Nice job, hope to see more. 10/10 :viridian: It was a bit hard, but not annoying.

Thank you very much for the kind -and most encouraging- words Vex69. They are deeply appreciated.

And you really got the level's central idea too! That's sounds even nicer.

Hope to both expand the Nasty Drop and finish that Manic Miner VVVVVV remake.

Cheers!
