CCCCCCCCCC Retoldby WhirligigDownload: http://dl.dropbox.com/u/20781742/cre.vvvvvv"Whirligig is the creator of the other ASCII demake of VVVVVV, titled CCCCCCCCCC. Itís a really clever and well put together game, that, like Robsonís YYYYYY, brings lots of itís [sic] own ideas to expand the basic concept of the game."
When I finished and released CCCCCCCCCC, it was quite a moment. But for a long time, I was slightly dissatisfied. Sure, it was a great console game, but first of all, it was Windows-only (and kind of sucked when run under WINE). Also, the "graphics" weren't that great, etc. What I wanted was to be able to play CCCCCCCCCC with the full VVVVVV experience -- something I couldn't do until now.
Now I've decided to remake CCCCCCCCCC, to retell the story. So I give you my latest level, CCCCCCCCCC Retold
-196 rooms, all of which are filled (three are inaccessible, technically, but they're there)
-10 areas and a bonus area
-10 trinkets (one per area)
The difficulty level is higher than that of VVVVVV (I would say), and there are some very hard rooms as well as rooms that require a lot of figuring out how to get through them. So if you're having trouble on a room, I'm introducing a new feature, which will henceforth be available on all of my level topics: Room Service
Basically, tell me you're having trouble on a room, and I'll add three hints to this post, in order of how much they give away and how "spoiler-ish" they are.
Also, there's a bug I recently found in playtesting. It seems to have been introduced recently (through processes that should not have introduced a bug), so it may be a problem with VVVVVV itself; I'm not sure. (I haven't gone back to check if it happens again because it's in the last 20% of a very long level.) If upon entering the room for area 9 the cutscene bars appear but no text is said, leave and re-enter the room and it'll be there. Again, I have no idea what could have caused this.
There's only one more thing I have to say, and that is:Have fun!Original Post:
I don't want to go into too many details about my latest VVVVVV level, but here are a few facts about it:
-It's 14 X 14, for a total of 196 rooms. Every room is used.
-It is, of course, divided into smaller areas and a hub.
-It uses pretty much every available music track except for Presenting VVVVVV.
-It has ten trinkets and a bonus area.
I'm currently looking for level testers, so if you're interested, PM me and I'll send you the level once I've fully tested it (to make sure there aren't any e.g. obvious game-breaking bugs, because I haven't played it all the way through).
