Title: "Golden Spiral" by Rox

I'm sorry. I really am. I had to make this, for those who can't get enough of a challenge!

This level is actually an homage to a thing, which was inspired by another thing that I, also, was inspired by while making this level. If you know what I'm talking about, hit me up for some free Internets or something! And even if you don't, please tell me what you think of this little piece of insanity!

I don't mind if you hate me for it.  :viridian:

Heh, this one I can't do at all. I was stepping through it room by room in the editor, but after a certain point I wasn't able to get past a single room! It's devious.

I DID IT

First of all, that was BRUTAL. Most of the rooms were very fair though, although a tad annoying to wait for platforms to come back into place before retrying. And while it wasn't the hardest one of the bunch, I found "Step Aside" a bit unfair, the flying things seem a bit random, and it's impossible to time going through the other section being sure to not end up hitting one of them right away, or getting into a position where two were coming at you at once. I left it mostly to luck for that one. As for the hardest rooms, I'd probably have to go with "Urging you to cross the line" and "Infinite possibilities"

Oh yeah, I just noticed, I didn't even attempt the trinket, because I didn't notice how to get there at first, but boy does that look brutal.

Oh my gosh, well done! I know what you mean with Swing on the Spiral and Step Aside. I know Step Aside would be very difficult to speed run consistently because of the random degree, but if you're patient, one thing you can do is hover on the last conveyor belt before the enemies and just wait to line yourself up. I know it's difficult to sit around waiting, but for that room, it's what I would do, myself.

As for Swing on the Spiral, there's actually a bit of a shortcut. If you leave the room to the right and come back in, the platform is in a position where you land on it if you just walk off the edge first thing you do. I originally had that room's checkpoint in the previous room for that reason, but I felt having to switch screens after each respawn was annoying on its own, so I left that little trick in there for the player to figure out.

Yeah, I eventually ended up figuring that out with swing on the spiral, that sped things up a bit. Other than those issues though, it's a very strong level.

But I seriously have to question though, have you done the trinket yourself? That looks impossible  :victoria:
Title: Re: "Golden Spiral" by Rox
Post by: Rox on July 27, 2011, 07:07:47 pm
I'll be honest... I haven't done it in one go. I didn't have time to playtest it as much as I would've liked. But I did inch my way through the whole section with the help of heavy checkpointing, so I know it can be done, in theory!

It's challenging, but you can suspend yourself above the spikes by swinging back and forth.  That gives the platform enough time to cross to the other side.

Post by: bigkahuna on August 05, 2011, 09:48:11 pm
WOAH. Brutally challenging level.

Very well designed, though! The hardest levels for me were "And Beyond" and "Infinite Possibilities". That second one is ill-named -- the only possibilities you have are which set of cubes to die from :P

Here's a pic. I never got the trinket, but I made it in one playthrough.

Nice, well done! Yeah, some room names are more fitting than others... Most of them worked out really well, though! Not to mention the cases where the room name ended up inspiring the room itself, like with Swing on the Spiral. Still waiting for someone to have an "oh, whoa, really?" moment regarding that, though...

Absolutely adored this level. Finally completed it a minute ago with both trinkets. I didn't even start to realise that the map names and the level was based on lateralus until I was stuck on 'feel the rhythm' for a while and then went through some of the other map names in my head and was trying to work out if it was a weird coincidence how the lyrics fitted until I remembered the name of the level. I guess that was my 'oh whoa' moment.

Anyway thanks for a great level probably my favorite extension to the original vvvvvv.

Unless Magnus changed the name of the track, it's actually called "Max Confidence"

Well that sucked 377 deaths and a half an hour of in-game playing time out of my life. Whee-ha!

What made Step Aside suck for me wasn't so much the enemy misalignment, but having to make it through the spike gauntlet before even being able to get up there. It was infuriating getting down to the bottom, waiting for the enemies to get just right, and then flipping into spikes on the way up. :victoria:

Infinite Possibilities and And Beyond were kind of flukey to me too. In Infinite Possibilities, what got me were the small blocks ending the gravity lines on the left and right edges. I'd land on one without realizing it, throwing off the bounce timing, and then I'd ram into an enemy with my face. And Beyond is great, except for how the two enemy pairs with the gap in the middle are right up against the gravity lines, so you can actually be killed from the other side if you bounce while one is directly beneath/above you. It was hard enough making it past the enemies without also having to worry about landing wrong.*

All that said, I'm pretty sure the room I died the most in was none of those, but Feel the Rhythm. Just could not consistently time the very first gravity line crossing at all.

Definitely a lot of tightly-designed challenges here. Love love love Swing on the Spiral in particular.

*: Eventually I figured out a super neato path through And Beyond that negated all that. With the right timing, you can flip into the first track while holding left, fall through the gap into the second track and switch to holding right, and make it past everything without ever having to correct your course!

That was the original name of the track. It was renamed for the game because all songs start with a P.

As for you, CHz, good job getting through! I never liked Infinite Possibilities because of the way grav lines behave with the screen wrap. I had to add the little blocks, because without them you could slip right through the lines if you entered at the right angle at the edge of the screen. I've never managed to be killed by enemies on the other side of the lines in And Beyond, but I definitely knew it was possible. That was intentional. I just never, ever had it happen myself, so thanks for confirming!

I agree about Feel the Rhythm. That took me forever to get through when playtesting.

I beat this a while ago, and I loved it for its difficulty.

The Weep Like A Widow trinket (the hard way) is ridiculous, but I'm determined to get it. With recording lag I made it to the last room and almost got back to the second last room, but I held right too long and went into the right wall.  :( I'm now trying it without recording lag, and I've only gotten to the second last room. I've already died well over 3000 times on this challenge, but I'm slowly getting better. I won't be able to try again for another week, so hopefully I won't get too rusty. But when I do succeed I'll make sure to get it on video.

Also I like what you did with the other trinket. I would have never found it if I didn't draw out the spiral.

Finally beat this! Some parts made me  >:( , so job done I recon ;)

Trinkets: 1 of 2 (guess which one, lol)
Deaths: 735
Time Taken: 45:55

Hardest room for me was Feel the Rhythm, also. It felt like I was being asked to perfectly time about 5 or 6 moves, with 0.1% margin for error. In particular, the spikes at the very right side, and the ones on the right side of the top right cube, really generated some rage  :D What else made it annoying was that I knew I could do it, but it took the lion's share of my 735 deaths to get it just right.

Good stuff!

This one was a bugger. But did it eventually. Loved the Lateralus reference throughout (obligatory +1 internets to you), and spiral theme of course inspired by the fibronacci sequence (any pretentious Tool fan will be aware that the verse of the track lateralus is based on the fibronacci sequence.) Any, kudos for making such a sh*ttingly hard level.  :violet:

Excellent. I made that challenge for you, then. I knew a small number of people out there would just love to do things the hard way all over again. I never expected most people to even bother with that trinket once they figure out what it's all about. It makes me happy to hear that inclusion's working as intended!

Woohoo, Internets! Glad someone finally caught the reference! The song, which I discovered fairly recently, was a massive help when making the level. Half of the rooms wouldn't have existed in their current form if it weren't for the inspiring lyrics. And for those who don't know what we're talking about, I can finally link to this now that it's out of the bag!

The entirity of Golden Spiral, from the layout to the room names to the obstacles and the level name itself, was inspired by this song and what it represents: Lateralus, by Tool (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wS7CZIJVxFY).

Well done on catching that.

This is my favorite level of those bundled.
After completing the level, I tried going for that one trinket, reached the room below the room below the top. I was always sort of assuming that at the top, there'd be a checkpoint on the disappearing platform because otherwise, the trinket would go from 'somewhat tedious' to 'highly tedious'.
Then I looked at the level, saw there's no checkpoint at the top and promptly gave up.
Anyone actually got the trinket?

Enjoyment: 7/10
Aesthetics: 8/10
Novelty: 6/10
Difficulty: 10/10
Room Names: 8/10

A year later and I came back to this one.  I had previously been stuck on "Swing on the Spiral", and it took me another 50 or so deaths to finally clear that screen.  That and the room right before it (I forget the name) were the hardest for me.

It's been so long since I played this that I don't remember at all where the first trinket was, that I was supposed to get.  I got the one on "Weep Like a Widow", but I think I did it the easy way?

This one is fun cause it's so hard, in a masochistic kind of way.  I'm surprised I persevered.  I guess the whole level was just very "tight" and looks nice, which added to the value, and kept me playing.  And now I've probably made the oldest post resurrection on this forum.

I honestly don't think anyone has ever got that trinket the hard way at full speed without cheating. At the very least, a checkpoint is required at the top to make it even possible as far as I can tell. Otherwise, you wouldn't get anywhere near enough attempts at the downwards trip to get good enough to be able to do it.

Post by: SomniRespiratory Flux on December 01, 2012, 11:40:50 pm
Well. This is certainly a bump and a half... But I finally finished this level, a little over a year after getting the game. As it turns out, finally getting the reference of the entire level made me decide to go back and actually complete it. (The wonders of having an internet radio station based off of another band of similar genre to get you to listen to music you knew you'd like but could never be bothered to look up... At first I just enjoyed the music, then the phrase "swing on the spiral" came up, and my jaw hit the floor. :o)
Anyway, about the level, I enjoyed it overall. Some rooms were very challenging, possibly too much so for their own good (the last jump in As Below, So Above comes to mind, as do Urging You to Cross the Line, Swing on the Spiral, and Infinite Possibilities). I got both trinkets, but I "cheated" on Weep Like a Widow. I still tried to go as far up the shaft as I could, but only made it to Or Whatever Will Bewilder before giving up. Looking at the rest of the segment on the level editor, I'm pretty glad I did. I doubt that many people have gotten that one legitimately. However, the level has a nice sense of polish, and the unifying theme of the musical reference is a nice touch. Moreover, the fact that there's already a highly-regarded level based entirely off of a song like this has made me more confident in my similar plans (I've been planning such a level since before I realized that that was what this was, but wasn't sure how it would be taken by the rest of the forum). Now I really have to finish making it... It won't be as difficult as this (or as subtle in its references), but I think that I'll credit you for inspiring me to spiral out, keep going, finish it, and release it. :viridian: I suppose that's the main reason I posted this, as it actually makes my opinion relevant to anyone else who cares.

Yes! I was actually hoping you'd make a level ever since you gave me such meaningful feedback on my first level. I'm excited to play it.

Post by: SomniRespiratory Flux on December 02, 2012, 03:12:40 am
Glad to see some enthusiasm! Unfortunately, it'll be a little bit before it gets ready to release. I only have the basic structure laid out at this point, and a fair amount of the room names. The actual rooms are going to take some time to prepare. Not to mention I have finals next week, so I probably won't have much time to work on it until mid-December. I'll try to make the level fun and somewhat original, but I haven't been too successful with making decent levels in ANY games with level editors. Hopefully I'll figure something out. When I get things close to finished, I'll make a topic to announce it. Be aware, though, that by "less subtle" I really mean that. The only real purpose of making the level will be because I felt like it, so there will likely be very blatant and otherwise pointless references all around. Most centrally to the precise topic, but more generally related references throughout. And one area which, true to the inspiration, will be a string of shout-outs to other influences of mine, or in this case things I feel like referencing. This probably hurts the chances of me making good level design choices though, as the room names being decided ahead of time limits what I can do with the rooms to an extent. I'll see how things work out. :verdigris:

And this is all very off topic. Ah well. :D
Title: Re: "Golden Spiral" by Rox
Post by: Flushex on December 02, 2012, 05:06:49 am
That sounds great. IMO, room names don't necessarily have to represent what that particular room is like. I find the main benefit of having room names is to provide a way of easy referencing on the forums when people point out bugs and such. As long as the challenges are fun, relatively innovative, well-paced, not too easy, and not too hard, it can still be a good map. I'm working on my third and probably my final level now and will probably have to slow down for the same reason you are, but I'm definitely excited to play and give you feedback on yours, since you helped me a lot with fixing the jaunt.

Also, because we hijacked this thread, I will add on a relevant comment. I highly doubt anyone was able to get the Weeping like a Widow trinket the legit way. It's absurdly hard. I did however love the map overall.
Title: Re: "Golden Spiral" by Rox
Post by: SomniRespiratory Flux on December 02, 2012, 06:36:11 am
Thanks for the tips. I'll keep those in mind. I already decided that some room names I'll definitely use are by their nature impossible to directly correlate with the room's challenge, per se. It's just that if I CAN come up with something, I will, as the names really can add to the design if done well. And really, the thread was off topic before we got here, anyway. I had just posted about my own finishing of the level, and how it is inspiring me in some ways to finish mine. It'll probably be back to the second page soon, anyway. I don't have much more to say about my level yet even if I wanted to. It's still mostly vague ideas at this point.

I honestly don't think anyone has ever got that trinket the hard way at full speed without cheating. At the very least, a checkpoint is required at the top to make it even possible as far as I can tell. Otherwise, you wouldn't get anywhere near enough attempts at the downwards trip to get good enough to be able to do it.

You do realize you can add a checkpoint into the level via the level editor to practice the bottom half, right? That's how I gained the necessary level of skill to beat it legitimately.

Honestly, I knew it was *technically* possible, I just never thought anyone would be so crazy dedicated as to actually DO it.

Kudos. :shiny:

I chose oshawott because he has the most badass final evolution ever
I mean, Serperior is just a grass-type Milotic and Emboar is a Magmortar.

I don't own any of those games. Not by choice, anymore, really. They're just so expensive, even used. It's kind of annoying.
I have no clue which I'd choose from Gen V (or from the upcoming Gen VI, either). But from Gen IV, I'd personally choose Piplup. All the way. I mean, who wouldn't want Empoleon? :P Badass + Penguin = Complete Awesomeness.
