A forest

You're supposed to be on the top of the trees, walking on branches and tree trunks.. a lot of 8-bit and 16-bit platform games had levels like that..

This is a pretty decent puzzle.  It can be simplified a little bit without losing a great deal



There was a blip in the difficulty just after the 6th checkpoint, otherwise it was really smooth.  Good work.

Atmosphere 1 starting with your level, trying to make it feel like a mountain-cliff-thingy-ish landscape... >w<

Atmosphere 2 and then made one from scratch, this time it's supposed to be a space level, complete with alien caverns to explore xD

I really liked the 'rope bridges' in the first of these, they give a really good sense of airyness without actually increasing how treacherous it is.

The first half of the second level felt very sparse, which I guess does fit the space theme, but the small scattered platforms don't fit in so well to me.  For the heck of it I tried converting it to a castle interior.

Statically linked version works: doing the same for the past challenges too would be useful.

Okay, will do.

Ah, that's excellent.  It felt really very foresty Smiley

I thought I'd give this one a try.  Theme is caverns.

I really liked this one -- I could see how you'd be able to flesh it out with actual tiles. One caveat: on screen #4, the one tile above the last jump on the right side makes it really difficult to complete. At least, it took me a while and it was kind of frustrating.

Here's my try: Escape from Cavern Mountain!

New level for people to make into...levels.

I tried to make the design of the level as interesting as possible, so go crazy giving it a feel.

I know I know! I'm a terrible person.  I've been really listless and useless the past couple of weeks for some reason, please forgive my rubbishness Beg

No worries, listless and useless sums up my past month up quite well. Thanks immensely for this workshop, I  Kiss you.

Onto level design! brb

Adventure at sea!

Dear Diary:
Day 1, I bought a new ship. Day 2, it was attacked by pirates. So, Day 3, I went home.

And, with only cosmetic modifications:
The Day The Bomb Went Off!

Also: a maze level.

Alright, I just found this thread, and decided to simultaneously take a stab at both the 1st and 3rd workshop. Hope that's okay.

6 Sokobans:
One
Two
Three
Four
Five
Six

For #3, Caves and Cliffs. I tried focusing on making the environment feel natural.

I liked the blockiness of the beggining areas. That definitely cemented the mine feel.

Oh wow I had no idea there was more than one screen in this editor. Coffee

Another go.

I've gone for an about-to-collapse ruins theme. Basically lots of arches and columns, and I alternate between enclosed and open air to try and keep it interesting. Also features a couple of backtracking bits to make it a little more explorey.

For #3, Caves and Cliffs. I tried focusing on making the environment feel natural.

That was nice, when I saw the final screen though I was expecting another screen past the exit. I like the idea of an unnecessary screen at the end that you can look at optionally. That would help the natural feeling as it's not directly A to B then.

Interesting that using checkpoints as spikes turns them into permadeath because it spawns you above the gap. I thought they were spikes initially though didn't really think to use them after realising they're checkpoints.

I linked to this thread via PlayThisThing so I could spread the love.

I tried making some levels last night but nothing worked out. My redesign of the 2nd exercise went for a cavernous pyramid vibe and I think I pulled it off pretty well; unless I can figure something out with the recursive nature of the screens I don't know what to do for this exercise.

I enjoyed this one, it started out open and expansive but morphed into that cavern. Having the door in the starting screen made it seem like I traversed a miniature planet.  Smiley

This was pretty cool, very evocative of Donkey Kong Country's first handful of levels.
