HaydenStudios: Storyline: 1/10 Abysmal. This mod has basically no storyline whatsoever. Just... falling out of nowhere and instantly dying if you let the cutscene go. And I don't understand what everything else is about.
hate9: it's basecaly curly's side of cave story from before it starts to after the the second ending.
and also, sorry about the cutseen death.
Well, sorry to break it to you, but I'm not too impressed so far.
HaydenStudios:Level Design: 2/10 Pathetic. Lots of room for improvment. Every addition to every map either looks like you're totally deforming it, or that you're making it unplayable. It might make a little more sense if you were just experimenting around, but otherwise, all of your additions should be a bit more thought out.
hate9: oops, sorry.
I don't understand. The poor level design was an accident? Whatever.
HaydenStudios:Gameplay: 4/10 Bad. You basically don't tell the player what he's supposed to be doing, but since some of the maps are left over from Cave Story, it has a few redeeming properties. But this has no explanation whatsoever.
hate9: rephrase this please, I don't understand it.
Basically, the player has no idea what he's supposed to be doing, and lots of people seem to think Curly's asking about someone named Sue. That, along with poor level design, and having no idea what to do, makes bad gameplay.
HaydenStudios: A message box displays at the biginning, but you can still move.
hate9: that was on purpose.
Well, it's kinda an unprofessional thing to let the player move around when a message box is going. Just saying.
HaydenStudios: Near your start position, there's a door up above, but there's no platform on the tile below it, so i can't get through it.
hate9: That was on purpose too.
HaydenStudios: Apparently, it's possible to proceed through the Sand Zone, but that pit at the entrance is deceiving.
hate9: What do you mean?
I mean, this pit is really out of place:
It looks like something you're supposed to got to, but you fall to your death. It's the reason I rated this mod 2/10 for level design instead of 3/10.
HaydenStudios: Improve the level design.
hate9: yeah, I will.
I hope so.
HaydenStudios: Make it a bit more obvious what the player is supposed to do.
hate9: rephrase that, please.
What I mean is, with the screwed up levels, failure to even properly load one of them, and 80% of the scrips being obviously left over from the original Cave Story, this makes me not know what on earth I'm supposed to be diong, and what the whole storyline and point of this mod is.
