View Full Version : The Steamy Jungle

This is a level I've been thinking of. It has three parts, and I'll try to fit them all into one level. If I can't, I'll just make 'em seperate levels in a set.

Part One: The Jungle
You spawn just beneath a tree canopy in a dense jungle. The first section will contain plenty of vine swinging and physics-based puzzles, such as pulling a sponge ball (attached to a string of elastic) very far back, then releasing the analog stick so you'll be slung back. Let go of R1 and jump at the right time, and you'll do a long jump over a pit.

As you progress, invisible triggers will cause boulders made of cardboard to fall from the sky. It's hard to be squished by them, but they can often mess up your vine swings or jumps. Deeper in the jungle, they will be on fire. Finally, grab onto a bell and you'll be pulled high into the air, over the top of a mountain...

Part Two: The Descent
You're very high in the air. Be careful-- on the right is a pit of lava. There's a glass slope with bubbles on it, but be careful- because if you don't, you'll end up sliding right into a pit of fire.

Instead, grab the rocks that are clogging up the mountain's entrance and toss them out of the way. Once inside, you'll find a strange contraption with a styrofoam ball attached to a rope. Once you grab the styrofoam, the contraption will move downward (there is horrible gas attached to the bottom of the machine, so don't let go!). Swing left and right to collect fluff and avoid danger.

Once you're at the bottom of the cave, it will get very dark. Go right, and you'll find a light attached to the ceiling. This light is connected to a rail via a string, so you can grab it and pull on it to move it through the cave with you. It's a good idea, considering you'll be in danger of enemies and lava.

Part Three: The Escape
The cave will light up again, and you'll find a chamber with a single button. Prepare yourself- once you press this, the volcano will erupt! A trapdoor will open, and many rocks will fly upward, knocking you around. Make sure to grab onto one and hold on for the ride! After escaping the volcano, proceed right to find the finish near an ice cream stand- a nice reward for such a hot trip!

I'll probably make it erupt by filling a gap below the button with rocks. Then, upon pressing it, a large block under the rocks will be shoved up very quickly by a rod, propelling the rocks into the sky.

If that doesn't work, I'll replace it by a flat platform that's over a pile of lava rocks. You have to hold onto the platform so you don't fly off it or hit any hot stones.

These ideas are great. I hope that they are just as well executed.

Nice idea! I love the way it was structured.

By the way, try not to bump threads from now on. Thanks. :)

When you say don't bump threads, do you mean we can't revive our threads?

If there's nothing to add, or it's not important, I don't think bumping does much.

Anyway, I do like this level. Very well thought out.
