    CaveStory.zip

    let's see though

    e: no, i'm not even playing this. the start point looks like shit, you can fall out of the map in at least two places, the door isn't working properly, and it hurts my eyes. not to mention the main menu... and... ugh.

    I tried to play this. There is such a clear lack of modding knowledge that I don't even want to address the problems with it.
    The map design is poor. Typically you don't want to spell out things with map tiles, it looks sloppy. So does most of the other tiling anyway.

    The character is half transparent because you didn't use the right color selection.

    Once you "FALL" there's nothing that can happen. That's just it.

    -2 hours... oh god no.
    -Manual.html... oh god this is a noob mod, isn't it?
    -It's CaveStory.zip even though the mod is supposed to be called "Hotondo 2!!!"
    -Everything's in .pbm format, I just KNOW this mod is gonna be the real shit. (As in: really shit.)
    -It's even fullscreen! The deal is complete!
    -Studio Pixel presents! Might I assume that during these 2 hours you did nothing but stare at the editor GUI?
    -Oh, sorry. It's not called "Hotondo 2!!!," it's called "Hotondo 2 - Press load." Might I ask why I am requested to press load? Or, why there's a save file already in the game? And why I CAN select the new option if I want?
    [​IMG]
    -whaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaat?

    -OK so the white isn't solid, the red and green are exactly the same, it's really fucking easy to go off the map, the life capsule does nothing because you don't know what a TSC is, and the door is buggy as fuck.
    -What the fuck is wrong with my legs? And, for that matter, my entire sprite. You seem to have broken the colour palette, and now my shirt and hair are transparent.
    -What is that thing surrounding the door?
    [​IMG]
    -More like fail. Stop telling me what to do, and instead use the level design to guide me.

    [​IMG]
    -And now I'm fucking stuck. Thanks.

    -Where do I even go?
    [​IMG]
    -Here?! But... you said to fall? Why lie to the player like that?

    [​IMG]
    -Oh... seems that this is the end of the mod.
    I sincerely regret wasting my time with this review.
    Please; go and put sometime into the mod, and come back when you have a version that isn't boring, short, and forgettable.
    TL;DR It's another noob mod. We get them all the time, some better than others. This one probably isn't very high on the list.
    WRONG!

    I am disappointed with the lack of content. The first Hotondo barely had any at all, but this sequel has even less, somehow.

    I am going to spend the next 2 4 hours (or less) to show you a good mod.

    No. A mod dedicated to proving that you put fuck-all effort into your mod could have made a much better mod in a similar amount of time.

    Look, I honestly can't tell if you're trolling or not.

    To call this mod complete is utter bullshit. It is far from complete.


    I'm not gonna say much more, just in case you're a troll.

    You guys are being pretty rude, yeah. From what I can see from the screenshots Oreo has a lot to improve upon but you don't have to be assholes about it.

    No. I can't even try. Not after Aar's AMAZING video of the first one. This is... No.

    Well, I kept my promise. Here it is:

    "Four Hours" Download

    (Yeah, I titled it Four Hours based on how long I spent making it.)
