Re: Return to the Shadowlands

Also something else I had planned to make (and partly why I thought about doing the tileset organizing) was a levelpack for Keen 6 where Keen has to rescue Spot because the Bloogs kidnapped him for revenge. :O I've already begun my tileset for this episode and while it's a bit messy because of addi...

Re: Return to the Shadowlands

Thank you for the full review, Soul Monster! I'm actually surprised Whispering Woods has been a popular level; it underwent several revisions and in the end I still felt the design would be boring. I'm glad I was wrong about it! I must have been really lucky when I tested the Bounder, I didn't seem ...

Re: The Alphamatic (Version 2 + Marooned Over Mars Expansion)

This is the next mod I've been catching up on and I just made it past the first elevator. To my understanding this mod is pretty big so I thought I'd give commentary incrementally. Also I'm playing on easy because I'm a mental wimp :mortlol I like the concept of the Alphamatic, both as a mod and the...

Re: Return to the Shadowlands

And it wasn't ludicrously, unfairly more difficult than the rest of the game, which secret levels sometimes can be. I'm glad to hear this since, in general and despite the larger levels, one of my goals was to keep the difficulty level true to the original games (with maybe the exception being gett...

Re: Return to the Shadowlands

I found it. I really liked what you did in order to reach the path to the inchworms. It is was rather clever, challenging and tricky. It took me awhile to figure it out. Even when you know what to do it is still not too easy to execute. Sweet, hopefully the effort was worth it! Version 1.04 is up, ...

Re: Return to the Shadowlands

I actually assumed players would enjoy herding all of them wherever without getting any stuck somewhere, but if corralling them all in a pit is more fun I'll change it back.

Re: Return to the Shadowlands

Minor quibbles: a couple of the larger levels were particularly easy to get lost in, and when I did finish them, I sometimes didn't feel like I knew how I'd done it. The "optional area hand signs" helped a lot, though. That's a great way to describe the feeling of wandering big levels, no...

Re: Return to the Shadowlands

Version 1.03 is up now with fixes thanks to Szemi. Some misplaced tiles but nothing game breaking.

This is what happens when I add things after testing has been done :o

Re: Return to the Shadowlands

So you're correct that the score mechanics were revised to make the score more meaningful, however, because of the nature of the treasure stealer and the way I chose to utilize it in levels, a perfect score isn't quite achievable, and the highest score possible will be luck dependent on how the trea...

Re: Return to the Shadowlands

Thanks, DarkAle! I amanged to get past Isle of Caves on v1.0, but maybe that's why I got to the end with a green keygem and a blue door. (Though I suspect I was just missing a secret something…) Yep, some bonus chambers in that level, but not the big secret :disguised Version 1.02 is up, superficial...

Re: Return to the Shadowlands

Glad you guys are enjoying it so far! The Badoing does have shock power, put if you look carefully there is 'worm-sign' that one is present and waiting. Roobar has pointed out I overlooked an level-breaking bug in the Isle of Caves, so I've just put out version 1.01 with a fix for this. Your saves s...

Re: Return to the Shadowlands

If I knew anything about video editing I would create a trailer showcasing some action, but honestly I'd rather everyone get to experience the levels themselves for the first time rather than through any demo footage.

Maybe some extra screenshots when I'm off work tonight :p

Re: Return to the Shadowlands

:D I do plan on doing a Keen 5 and Keen 6 continuation of the story, and both will be enhanced levelpacks of their source material. This is kind of a fuzzy definition of levelpack, to explain further: I try to utilize every in-level tile the original games came with at least once, with a few excepti...
