By the way, if/when we're doing Keen 3, I'm suggesting the obvious: danger tile + ankh. That's something I really want to see utilized.
Thumbs up for that.

It's a unique mechanic. So solid tile, hazard tile, ankh?

I sent a level in. Did it get through all right?
It got sent to my spam folder for some reason, but I got it.

Not to sound annoying or anything similar, but that's what I tried to suggest after the first contest. (Although it's entirely possible I explained it in a way that nobody could understand. I do that sometimes. :dopekeen)
It seems this is a sensible course of action. This will have to be kept in mind.

That's 11 levels, are we all done here? No more takers?

Yeah. Implying one background tile too, of course. But now when I'm thinking about it - what it there's just solid tiles, barbed wire fence (killing), and ankhs? :eek No background tiles at all (except from collected ankhs). That would certainly change the nature of this thing into even crazier dimensions. But why not, why not? :mortlol

11 levels is pretty good! I think that's one more than last time.

I would love to partake but alas, I've been awfully busy :( I might be able to finish a level tonight, but I can't make any promises. But no need to hold back the thing because of me. I'll just release it afterwards as an unofficial expansionary single-level level pack :crazy

Alright, so in the same way I badgered 'lord to do something (While she avoids working on our ACTUAL project for two months I might add!) I got my oldest to make a level.

It took just under two minutes.

I said it was a level, that's all.


I have a strange sense of humor.

They did, but have moved out of the habit.

We have agreed that his moniker shall be Levellad. (The husband is Leveldad of course. He wants nothing to do with this.)
