Ah, that was a nice bit of fun. Nice little mini-mod here. Expect I had to cheat. I needed a Blue Gem to advance in the next area, a Gem I could not reach.

Or maybe I'm just stupid and didn't see how to get on the ledge above and grab the Blue Gem by falling down on it, instead of pogoing up for it.

This was pretty good.
As for that blue gem; the help section says medium and hard are the exact same to easy, so play on easy, and the pogo'll reach.

Nifty!


Hmmmnnn.. I need to update the Zoltan's revenge entry. But how do I upload files like that to the wiki?

Good job!

I had the same problem reaching the blue keygem. Another anoying thing is that it is possible that a treasure eater can get the keygem making it impossible to finish the level.

What is keen actually doing when he waits on the hand symbol?

He stands and shows his left hand(it's like the hand on the pyramid entrance or the green flashing hand symbol inside of the level)

Not bad, a little bit straight-forward, but I guess that's the point.

Have you been working on this at the same time as your other Galaxy mod? Hopefully you get that one done before you start on anything else haha.

Yeah, it was a little too simple for me to find all that interesting. The thing that disappointed me most, though, is that it's unbeatable in anything but easy.

Indeed, he could have at least put in some invisible tiles.

Sorry, but I must contradict. Actually it's my levelpack or not?

Take advice/criticism when it's offered - it'll often help things become better.

I think that the complaint of being unable to finish on medium and hard is a legit concern. Would you consider putting a version with a playabl hard version out?

Actually they should read the INFO menu besides the Help Menu.
I concretely wrote there are no plus enemies in normal and hard mode, so the normal and hard mode are the same as easy mode, because there are no plus enemies. Get it?
