Level Contest 8: DarkMatt Plays Your Levels and Insults You.

Postby DarkMatt » Sat Jul 26, 2014 6:35 pm

VVV*READ THIS BEFORE YOU SET ONE FOOT INTO THIS THREAD.*VVV


-This is half minute criticism written down with no care, sympathy, nor consideration for your feelings, skills, nor sensibilities. What you are getting is a first impression and no in-depth analysis of your strengths and weaknesses save for a couple seconds of thinking about it. You are not meant to take this seriously and any snarkiness or flat out insults are not meant to deter you from improving your skills at designing levels.

tl;dr TAKE EVERYTHING YOU'RE ABOUT TO READ WITH A GRAIN OF SALT YOU BIG BABY.

Oh and to clarify, this applies to every post in this thread. Go hog wild.

^^^*IF YOU DON'T READ THIS AND YOU WHINE ABOUT THIS THREAD I WILL FIND YOU*^^^

Spoiler: show
[center]NOW LET'S GET IT ON.
Image
WE DON'T GIVE A WHAT WHAT WE DON'T GIVE A WHAT WHAT[/center]


Hi. I either submitted a joke level or I actually placed good. What the hell are you doing DarkMatt?:
Image-I'm gonna review your levels. All of them. ALL OF THEM. NONE SHALL BE SPARED. YOU'RE ALL GONNA FIND OUT JUST HOW AWFUL YOU DID AND I WILL BE THERE TO SWING THE AXE ON YOUR LEVEL.


Fuck this I'm out. I have jimmies to protect.
Image-Did I mention I would be giving PRIZES TO THE PERSON WHO WINS THIS? The post is dead though, so :(. But basically, first place is getting a 10bux game off Steam, on me, no probs. That means I at least get to do this, so SUCK IT UP.

Image-There may also be prizes for 2nd, 3rd, and 4th place. We'll see how it goes.


That's cool. How're you doin' this?:
Image-You got 3 categories:

Gameplay
Aesthetics
Wildcard

Image-The first two are self-explanatory. Wildcard is whatever I think is the most relevant point (in a design aspect) of your level. This can either be something good or bad and, because I am a spiteful asshole, bad is gonna take precedence over good. Deal with it.

Image-Oh and due to trade agreements I'll add an extra category: Difficulty. A 0 is something I can do in my sleep, 3 is challenging, 5 is hard to the point of frustration, and anything above is broken difficulty. This has no bearing on your final score. This is just so people can thread the needle properly.

-Each category will get any whole number between a 5 and a 0.
A 5 is something that legit impresses me. This is very hard to do.
A 4 would be good and actually somewhat fun.
A 3 would be average. Enjoyable, but nothing more mundane than a 3.
A 2 would have glaring problems but would otherwise be okay as a level.
A 1 would be trash, but have something interesting, no matter how miniscular.
A 0 is worthless and I'll be telling the designer that he is bad at marios.

Image-The categories are averaged out and that is your score. So you can get 0.66 and treat it like a near 1 or get 4.33 and feel like it was almost perfection.

Image-I'll be going through your levels in the order of how they placed from worst to best in the contest. This involves playing through your level with small mario and keeping on until I either complete it or turn on donthurtme/ahippinandahoppin. I'm under no obligation to playtest your own levels. You were suppose to do that.

-The reason why you should read this is because I'm gonna give you a screenshot with every level.

wha howd u get da lvls alredy i want dem 2
Image-A: read above. B: I asked nicely for the purposes of this thread right here. THIS DOES NOT MEAN YOU GET TO HAVE THEM. SO DO NOT ASK.

Will it just be you?:
Image-Chances are yes, it'll just be me. If you're lucky though, I'll find some friends of mine to laugh at you as well.
That is it. Go to the next post to get the first batch of levels.

Difficulty: If I clap my hands and do a dance I can find friends that will like me and what I like.

Gameplay: 0/5
Aesthetics: 0/5
Not a Flying Toy Bonus: 0/5

FINAL SCORE: 0

DarkMatt sez: Congratulations, you banged on the editor and made funny things happen. Did you know that this was a level contest where you make levels instead of fucking with events to try to entertain people? Did you also know that a well made level can easily out-entertain you and be more worthwhile than whatever you can do in this editor?

tl;dr oh hi SMBXxer. You still suck.

FINAL SCORE: 0.66

DarkMatt sez: That's great kid, you managed to make a ghost house. Now if you did any sort of real level design it would not be just slightly better than the joke levels. Really, that's pathetic.

DarkMatt sez: Had you actually tested jumps and looked over your level for any graphical glitches this would not one of the last place losers. Shame really, because this was a pretty good mediocre level.

Imagine Mario Swimming in Space Water, Forever Bonus: 0/5

FINAL SCORE: 1.33

DarkMatt sez: This would be a good level, if it did not take creative liberties on WHERE THE FUCK I GO IN THIS PLACE. There's going in wacky directions and then there's just assuming the player knows where to go. Shame really, because this wasn't half bad.

DarkMatt sez: That screenshot right there? That's what you're playing the whole level. Don't be fooled by the few changes in graphics and platforms. This level does a really bad job in trying to be special.

Gameplay: 1/5

WAY TO PLAYTEST NERD Bonus: 0/5

FINAL SCORE: 0.66

DarkMatt sez: It's okay. The level was randumb and pretty uninteresting. You can just have the really fucking stupid boss that likes to destroy the one way to beat its first phase. That's A+ material, right?

I CAN'T HEAR YOU OVER THIS TERRIBLE TECHNO REMIX: 0/5

FINAL SCORE: 1.33

DarkMatt sez: So let's see, your level is the same old boring shit, there's lava just at the end because sure why not, and you don't do anything to wow the player except, well, lava at the end of the grassiest fucking level around. Also, if you made that track, you're also bad at music.

FINAL SCORE: 0.66

DarkMatt sez: Your enemy selection is a fucking mess and so is your level. Repeating it twice does not make it better. In fact, it explains why you're in first tier. Also way to playtest.

This is one of the best things to happen since the time SMBXxer had his freakout a week or two back.
Living explosives, prone to destroying themselves along with their enemies with their powerful "Self-Destruct." Bombs take the rage built up by being attacked and transform it into energy. This, in turn, makes them grow, sometimes to incredible sizes.

Stop.

Anyways, this is funny.
Yeah, I tried to make a bad level, so, that's what that piece of shit is.
Hahaha, 10/10.
Would up-rep if I could.

EDIT: Also, I think saying that I can't do anything good at all with the editor is a bit harsh.
Might be working on an episode maybe.

So... Why the hell did they NOT choose you to be one of the level reviewers for the contest? Surely they had to have asked. Did you rebuff them?

Anyway if you don't hurry up and post Tier 2 reviews in the next 5 seconds i will fucking rape you

Edit: You leave me no choice...

I voted only Ermal on the poll because he said something about my level that made me get that rad feeling. Does the graphics REALLY have to matter? Everyone else seemed decent/good judges.

Message of the Day:
Image-Here's the crap that didn't get last place loser status. Out of the like, 15 or so I played, like, 2 of them actually get scores higher than 2. Also, this is when you start to seriously question what the hell the judges were on.

Koopa Troopa Beach Brawl
Person to Blame: JangoFred
Difficulty: 1/5

Gameplay: 1/5
Aesthetics: 1/5 (GUESS WHO ALSO FORGOT MUSIC? IT'S LIKE PACKAGING THINGS AND TYPING THINGS IN ACCURATELY IS SO HARD.)
Where's The Koopas Bonus: 1/5

FINAL SCORE: 1

DarkMatt sez:There's a theme and some set pieces and not a whole lot else. This else is also really boring. Also, how hard is it for you clowns to PLACE YOUR STARS IN SUCH A WAY THAT THE PLAYER CANNOT KILL HIMSELF AFTER GETTING IT

Gray-Rock Pass
Person to Blame: 8bitmushroom
Difficulty: 0/zzzzz

Gameplay: 1/5
Aesthetics: 2/5
Backtracking Bonus: 0/5

Kampfschiff 1K
Person to Blame: MECHDRAGON777
Difficulty: You got a Map?/I lost mine.

Gameplay: 1/5
Aesthetics: 2/5
Cancerous Lump of Paths Bonus: 0/5

FINAL SCORE: 1

DarkMatt sez:Everything in this god damn level only serves to make it more longer and confusing, not like, say, give the player an idea of where to go, or, provide any hint towards progress, or even close off paths you've already been to because there's nothing there. And another thing, this level does everything it can to be that 1st place winner and you can see it uses tricks both neat and stupid. Fuck's sake this isn't Metroid. You can make a big level without having it be a fucking slog to go through.

DarkMatt sez:Do you just loathe the idea of people testing the copious amounts of bricks and blocks you've put in this level and you want to punish them every step of the way? Do you passively hate the player that much? Custom boss was also dumb.

Volcanic Valley
Person to Blame: andregemeo23
Difficulty: 3/UR2SLOW

Gameplay: 3/5
Aesthetics: 3/5
Lava IS Slow, Actually Bonus: 2/5

FINAL SCORE: 2.66

DarkMatt sez:This level starts off neat, then undergoes a style change, (im iffy on sudden changes in atmosphere) then does a very slow section, and then gives the player no warning at the end that MAYBE HE SHOULD GOFAST. (compared to the rest of the level) There's plenty of things done right with this level and plenty of things that needed to have a second look, like how the warning signs don't actually help all that much.

DarkMatt sez:Okay here's a gimmick, here's minimal graphics, and here's things to do. Sounds like a winner right? Until you play it and realize the level can't decide on what to use and it is actually very strict on not slowing down because you don't know what the shit is happening. It's like the designer never put himself in the player's shoes.

DarkMatt sez:Terrible gimmicks. If the really bad looking rotary platforms that will slide you off because you didn't land on it squarely wasn't enough, try some timed cloud platforms that are there to....be there. WHY ARE THEY THERE? HOW DO THEY CONTRIBUTE TO YOUR SHITTY LEVEL?
