    Let me be the first to say that this is one of the few mods that I've actually enjoyed playing. And not just because I'm in it, but that probably plays a role. The action is fast and visceral, and overall the length feels just about right.
    It starts off a bit slow with how much health the first set of enemies has, but from then on the pace picks up. The spambot's lair was the highlight of this for me, and due to an oversight (or brilliant planning?!?) the camera speed seems to have been at INSTANT, which gave the game an incredibly fast responsive feel that I didn't even know was possible with cave story. Combined with the colors, I felt like I was under the effects of some kind of fantastic mind altering drug. The only downside is this goes away if you die and have to respawn partway through, which is disappointing.
    My biggest complaint has to be with the final boss. Armed with only a banhammer and 15 health, it is near impossible to defeat without some kind of mad skillz and patience, which kind of contradicts the lightning fast, powerful feel of previous levels. Perhaps this is symbolic.

    Also secret cat room

    I certainly thought it was a fun and quirky concept. I wondered if it was inspired by "The Nameless Mod" mod for Deus Ex in any way? That mod had you exploring a game forum, and you were a moderator...

    I'd give the mod a 7.5/10. I say this somewhat cautiously, because I personally dislike combat heavy mods. However, if I did find combat entertaining, I would give it a solid 8/10.

    Anyway, do you intend to develop the mod further, make a sequel, anything like that?

    Cool thanks!

    I could probably lower the health of the beginning enemies a *tiny* bit. Mostly because they have a bit more health than the next set of enemies I think. So yeah I guess that can be fixed easily.
    Glad you enjoyed the Spambots' Lair! I never knew that neon colors could have a drastic effect on the human mind though!

    Another balance thing that I probably need to fix. Might have a solution for that though...

    I just ignored my save and started over the mod, just to be in the Kitty Room again. It's the hardest level, too cute to pass :)

    The mod combined the combat-heaviness with powers pretty well.
    I don't if it's intentional or not but many aspects of the mod mirrored the nature of the forum.
    For instance, how exploitable the bosses are goes to tell that trolls usually end up getting trolled themselves.
    And I think the meaning of the mod is pretty deep, intentional or not.

    9/10 only because of the last boss being too hard.
    Also I felt very sad that I was not found in the Herb Village D: (not really)

    There are a couple spelling errors that I would be glad to point out once I actually look.
    The Slingshot item still reads the "Gum base" text.
    The ItemImage.pbm or whatever is in monochrome or something. Everything is grey and black except for the Gumshot.
    When N0xid's talking to Hayden, when the Polar Star is supposed to show, the Fireball shows instead.

    OH ALSO ALSO I really enjoyed this.

    Spaling errors:
    "If only the bed wasn't so flat and unsuppotive" --> "If only the bed wasn't so flat and non-supportive."

    I agree with AM, it was rather combat heavy, but it pretty much symbolized how much shit Noxid had to go through.

    Complantes: I agree with lunarshinedoors, I kinda wish that he was in there since he is the leader of Herb Village. Other cameos would be nice too, such as renaming Monater X and Balfrog. And as Magicmoonman also pointed out, there are quite a few spelling errors (the non-intentional ones). Such as Sattelite Lounge and Katawa Shaojo

    Also yeah, the final boss was pretty damn hard.

    My final complaint is that it ended ;_; But it was still a masterpiece. The spambot lair nearly made me die of laughter. .Seriously though. It got to the point of abdominal pain laughter.

    But whatever, just the fact that this mod exists makes me happy. I kinda wish you planned to put more in it or make another though :c

    Although that one goblin seemed a lot like me, with all the "Agreed"s.

    .I only managed to defeat Windo now.
    I'd say the mod is awesome, and since I've already rated it....

    Well I didn't expect that. Could you actually take that out? I'd rather not have my pic shown outside of the "post your picture" thread. I'm a little self-conscious that way. You could use one of my avatars if you still wanna keep something in there.

    Fine then. I'll see if I can draw art of you tomorrow. Avatars are not gonna happen, believe me. Although, I could make a bunch of facepics inspired by your style/way of avatars though.

    But if you were really conscious about your picture then why did you post it in the first place >.>

    Well if it's confined to a thread maybe it retains a tiny bit of privacy, compared to being broadcast everywhere.
    Eenh...I might take that pic down anyway.

    Too many spikes in a room at the beginning. Cannot pass that tunnel without dying many times. Maybe I haven't got the skills. Trying I guess...

    Don't worry, the prize that you get in the end is pretty useful sometimes (because you will need as much life as you can get in the upcoming levels).

    Also a quick hint: Try to conserve as much Booster as you can in the first tunnel by twitch-spamming the jump button. It may seem difficult but it is very possible ;D
    Also if you continue to have trouble take this
