#1
And we're live again with another Roughly 15 Fresh!






This week we're looking at:

Just another platformer - masseyf
SASUKE Ninja Platformer - simora2873
Forgotten - DrJones20
LBP PLATFORMERS II: RETRO - taytoez
Twisted Cave Of Water - TurboToilet

There's an interesting mix of levels here, and hopefully you'll find something that looks fun to you. Thanks as always for the support and feedback, and have a great day!

Behind the Curtains Stuff

The story in the intro is only slightly different from what actually happened in reality. i'm not nearly so bitter about it, especially not 20 years later. Still, it is amusing how these things work out.
i'm a little bit salty about SASUKE getting picked up as LotD, mainly because i didn't see it coming i guess (i'm expecting one of the levels for next week's show getting picked, to be honest). i do wonder about picking something so inaccessible to present to the community as the best of the day, but, well, i'm not the person making these decisions.
i've got the apartment to myself for the next week, i could use the time to get a lot of stuff done, or to finish up some games that've been languishing, or travel or something. Probably i'll just make an improbably and unnecessarily large Isaac backlog. i've just been in that kind of mood.

Here we are again for a Tuesday Takeaway!

Just another platformer - masseyf
Well, it's not what it says on the tin. i mean, it is a platformer, and some of the platforming is a bit tricky; but it's really more of a puzzler. Puzzler? Maybe. There's a lot of "how do i get this bit to move there so i can progress," so i think we can go with puzzler. My feelings didn't really change much from the video, the backtracking gets old quick, and the end, i was wondering if the juice was really worth the squeeze. i would say no, personally.

SASUKE Ninja Platformer
Again, this one was in the same spot as i felt when i was recording. Visually, it's really quite keen; and it's certainly a hard level, which can be nice. But the gap between death and getting to take another stab at the run really starts to add up after awhile. Apparently there's an American Ninja Challenge show or something? Someone in the reviews mentioned that. i guess they just took the old American Gladiator sets and reused them, which i suppose goes to show that networks are pretty lazy.

Forgotten - DrJones20
Meh...there's just not much going on with this one. It starts off promisingly enough, but then we hit the invisible floor section, and then it's done. As a vehicle for listening to a nice music track, it's fine.

LBP PLATFORMER II: RETRO - taytoez
Nice little platformer, short, but visually packed enough to make it fun to go through. i appreciate that they had an option to change music, though i wonder why they didn't have a default song playing. You can do the whole level without any if you skip that bit at the beginning. i've been thinking a little bit more about music in levels, 'cause i play around with it for the show. i like the interactive music boxes more, i think, because you can squeeze a lot more out of a single song.

Twisted Cave of Water - TurboToilet
It's...well...it's a pretty straight-forward cave environment. Doesn't do much wrong, but...once you've seen a dozen, you've seen them all. i don't know what TT was meaning when they said they were trying more unorthodox gameplay, it was all pretty orthodox to me. Maybe i've been playing too many levels. Interesting point, but i got a comment on YouTube directing me to another of TT's levels; but also mentioned they'd needed to signpost the level because people couldn't figure out how to finish the level without it. i...i...i've probably definitely been playing too many levels.

So...that's the that. It was a little on the meh side of things this go around, unfortunately. Nothing not worth giving at least a go at, but nothing that just screamed "play me" i suppose. Thanks as always for all the support, and i hope y'all have a fine day!

Behind the Curtains Stuffs
Got a weird glitch last night, putting together the hub, where all the timers and counters just appeared as the frame, so you couldn't see if they were really triggering or not. Seems to have disappeared this morning, though, so that's a good thing.
i am listening to Bill Hicks, and that is also a good thing.

The reviews sound fair to me. Good job! I'm looking forward to the next episode!

By the way, I know you already looked at Too Late Chapter 1 in R15F and I'm very grateful for it. Though I published a demo of Too Late (Which includes similiar content from the chapter 1 level) and the visual design is a little different. I'd be glad if you included my demo level in a future R15F episode. If you don't want to feature it again I'm definitely okay with it.


Well, whatever, thanks for the great work!

Thanks, mdkd! i wouldn't mind taking a look at Too Late on LBsP, though it may be a bit. i've got a few episodes i've got on the list i need to get to first.
