The Unknown Dimension [Demo 3 released!!!]
« on: October 16, 2012, 02:33:48 pm »


TUD is my very first VVVVVV level I'm actually working on. Nothing else to say, really. (Now with a stupid logo, yay!)

A storyline of some sort
Viridian and the rest of the crew get somehow teleported to an unknown dimension, and now Viridian has to rescue them all. Very original.
I guess there will be a better and more original storyline some day. Who knows.

Screenshots





Ok, so there will be four different areas; The Space Station (which for some reason has warp zone tiles), The Lab, Abandoned Facility and The Polar Dimension.
The third demo is finished. Download it now and explore the third area; The Abandoned Facility.  :viridian:

So, uh. There we go. Criticism is obviously welcome. Also, I'm pretty sure there are some bugs in the demo.

Really? I didn't know. Most of the rooms in W1 are actually pretty easy if you know what you're doing. I'm going to
record the W1 & first rooms of W2 as well probably. But thanks for the feedback! Much appreciated.

I'm probably not gonna play this, but let me say things.

That logo is not stupid. It's pretty good. Also, that 'give me a W'

I think I used it in my level (Dimension WWWWWW) before you, but no worries! I won't sue (because I have better things to do than sue random people on the internet).

The logo remind me of some random RPG or Painterly Pack or Dwarf Fortress combination of those in no particular order.

f-
I thought Give me a W was an unused and creative idea  :victoria:

Haha, thanks. The logo is actually supposed to be kinda RPG-styled.

Actually, It's kinda like 2 'Give me a V's put together.

That's how I got the idea anyway.

The second world is almost done! About 3-5 rooms to go.
Oh and by the way, there's some new fresh screenshots. I love using direct mode :)

Woo! Lovely level, very fun too! A bit difficult but entertaining nonetheless. 9.6/10 for you!  :viridian:

I didn't expect to get 9.6 from a demo. Eh. Well, thanks!

:vermillion:

Anyways, the second world is almost finished! The overworld is nearly done as well (but there's still like 6-7 rooms to go) and I've got to actually add some more scripts and stuff. Expect to see the second demo this week.

Well, I played it.

I LIKE:
The creativity. The rooms in W2 are VERY creative, as well as a few W1 rooms.
The originality. I don't think I've seen a level with similar challenges.
The difficulty (of W1). W1 is a very fair part of the level. The jump in 'EEEEE' was hard, but I managed.

I DON'T LIKE:
Just one thing. The difficulty of the first room in W2. Nothing else. I'm alright with everything else.

RATING #1:
8/10. The levels were creative, original and challenging. This is all the requirements for a featured level. Terry should feature this.

OT: First review like this. I should maybe review more levels like this.
OT EDIT: 400th post. Wow, what a perfect time to start reviewing stuff!

Thanks! This is my first level so I got quite suprised. =P
Gotta agree tho', EEEEEE is pretty annoying. I tweaked it a bit (I removed only one spike but that made the room much easier).

I see. I didn't know it's that hard. I guess I'll make it a bit easier too?
RATING #1:
Terry should feature this.
:vitellary:
I don't think he's going to feature a demo- [shot]

Anyways, only about two rooms and the second world is finished. However, I guess the level will not have any sort of internal scripting because I have no idea how to even make a script that activates only once.
