Title: (Beta Build 2) The Rainbow Factory
Post by: ToasterApocalypse on December 15, 2012, 11:30:05 pm
This is my 6th level (The others are ABCDEFG, WWWWWW, Switchback, Computer Crisis and Trials of Emerald) And basically, I was planning on adding this to Switchback but never did. ANYWAY, details.

LENGTH
It's a beta. It's not very long at all. I can beat it within 2 minutes.

DIFFICULTY
Bleh, easy.

CREWMATES

Well, that took me a little longer than two minutes. But not more than ten. I forgot to check at the end. Oops. ::)

The difficulty wasn't too bad, but I'd say it was still harder than most of the original game. The conveyor-belt part toward the end took most of the time I was in the level. Kept dying stupid, stupid deaths. :victoria:

The one thing I noticed was that the transition from Don't Starve to Puzzled Pirate seemed a bit jarring. Not hard to figure out, but just out of nowhere. Only a minor issue, really.

Overall not too bad for a beta level. :viridian:

Nice. I can tell I already like the level design graphically. Reminds me a little bit of Unknown Dimension. I'll play this tomorrow.

A nice one, although I think the conveyor belt at the end seems to appear out of place.
Love the graphics  :viridian:

There's a pretty nasty wall glitch when entering pillars of creation. Other than that, it was pretty fun. Took me way longer than two minutes as well, but I really like the look of the level, and I think it could potentially be a great level if you keep it up.

I really wish I could play this!  :victoria:

Anyway, you should make a trinket one.

He meant that he has only the 3DS version. You have both the computer and 3DS versions. You can only play user levels that come from here with the computer version.

Oh, you don't notice anything in the level itself. I tried deleting some of these strange lines (after making a back-up, of course), and enemies and platforms were deleted.

Still seems weird. Haha. I'm just wondering how that got there in the first place.

Direct Mode. If you have 2.1, you can activate it with F10.

I DO have 2.1 but I'm talking about the BACKGROUND, not the tiling. (If you can see the background
it changes colour.)

In a super gravitron? That just happens when you use horizontal warping instead of all-direction warping there.

No no no no no NO.  >:(
The lab background changes like the the room "Purest Unobtainium" in the real game.

Oh, I didn't even know the background changed there! :-[ The only room I knew of where the background color changed was the super gravitron.

I haven't been designing this level for while.

It's because I got bored and made this. (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8Wmsjlof9qc)

Well I beat Beta Build 2. It's definitely fun, despite mild checkpoint starvation here and there (nothing I'm not already used to from Toast). I also really like the concept of the room "Empty". You can't see the walls so you have to figure out where to go on your own, which is fun. The problem with this is the spikes and grav lines appear to be floating and not attached to anything, which makes the room look kind of ugly. I'm wondering if the same effect could be created with a more aesthetically pleasing method, but in any case, the level is fun and I hope you do pick it back up!
