I think the dome background needs to be more darker.

I think you mean 'more dark'

Wiivn raises a good point, as does Levellass (x2).

I think darker (not more darker) would be a better choice.

Looks neat.

You could use the the conveyor belt property to make slippery blocks.


I'll put this on the netkeen site once it's done.

Wouldn't that make you slide the way the conveyor is going?

Lemm, half a dozen people want to talk to you!


In theory it would be possible to put a slippery tile property into Keen 6, using the conveyor code modified slightly to just accelerate Keen forward instead of making him always face a certain direction. It may be worth looking into.

Lately been working out some unexpected problems with tileing and revising some of the platforms to function a bit better. Keen 1 is nearly complete!

That's awesome.


edit: Netkeen levels are usually symmetric though. These are not so much... so hopefully it will be fair to both players when they start.

I realize many of the graphics have been made in the cheapest way possible, but a) that's how I work too, and b) yeah it looks perfect.

Those ice hills are sweet.

Those snowy hillls are done by fantomx11 and I agree, they look great; very simple and fitting for Keen 1.

@Scarlet: This just isn't true. Netkeen levels are divided pretty evenly between symmetric tournement style levels, and large free-for-all arenas. I know; I designed 75% of them.
