My results for the Halloween level contest:
- 14 - Somewhat scary
- This hack was somewhat scary just because it had a pretty dark theme throughout. Most of the scares came from hidden pitfalls and surprising enemies. Most of it though was a normal jump-and-bump Mario level. Some more suspense would have been good.
- 13 - Level Design meh
- This level was kind of an average level. There were a couple innovative parts, but these were bogged down by some cheap enemy placement and cheap jumps over spikes. I think the difficulty could be toned down or more varied. Also, I would have liked to have seen more problem-solving in a Ghost House. It was still a pretty good level overall though.
UNIQUENESS/CREATIVITY LEVEL: 15.5/20
-Not a bad level. The Redrawn graphics were a nice little touch here. I also
liked the general style of the level, including the transition from inside
to outside. However, there were parts of the level that felt a bit tedious
and boring, along with a few annoying jumps.
SCARE FACTOR: 13.5/20
-Wasn't as scary as it could have been. Again, the Redrawn graphics helped to
up the score a little here, along with the spooky little side story - however,
as a whole, there wasn't really enough to genuinely scare someone.
