Survival at the sea! (new version)moonwire
I first created this level when I was at my grandma's house, and this is my first level ever published on the PSP... It's basically a survival level which I have made all by myself. There's not a lot of survival challenges here at LBP for PSP (at least I have not noticed any), so I thought I would make one. (note that was then, there's a considerable amount of new ones I have seen and played now)
. Survival at the sea is basically a survival level where you must dodge the fiery cannonballs that are being shot at you.
When you play the level, I can tell you that I made the cannonballs sometime miss to hit you on deck purposely, as if everyone had hit, the level would have been all to hard for everyone, and me too.
:p

Edit:
Ok, as suggested I have now added 4 cannons, with increasing difficulty (climax at 4 cannons). I also changed the end place, no more up in the skies, now the exact opposite (no not hell), the bottom of the sea. I had to delete all the previous logic and renew it, and it worked pretty well I think.
If you want to know, I achieved the logic by using consecutive delay switches. Each switch would activate a certain function along with the next delay switch. Works pretty well. If I would want to add anything I can just re-place some wires and/or add a new delay switch.

Sorry for the long time before the update, I took a big break, but now I am probably back. like 99% sure. :D

I enjoyed your cartoonish style to it.
The reason I never make challenges is because they do not last very much, but I liked it and gave you a five star! congrats. :p

Hey moonwire! Nice to see in PSP land. :)

Cool little survival challenge you've put together here - I had a lot of fun playing it. The look and feel is fantastic, and somehow familiar..... I was expecting the Kraken to show up at any moment. ;) The rocking of the boat and the timing of the cannonballs and point bubbles was spot on - you definitely have it tuned right. I thought the way you have the level entrance set up is brilliant. I don't think I've seen it done that way before... I like it though. Oh, and I like spaghetti too. Mmmm.

I played a bunch of times and finally managed to get the top score. Yay! One thing I didn't notice though was the difficulty increasing. That's not 100% necessary of course, but it is theoretically possible to play forever... but I guess that's part of the challenge. ;)

I gave it 4.5/5 stars, which of course ends up as 5 stars in-game, as well as a heart. Good stuff here!

Ahhh, thanks for all the warm comments!

I have been thinking about increasing the difficulty further out, since it keeps the same tempo all the time, but sooner or later you will make, maybe, a mistake. I will upgrade it though, somewhere in the future, after finishing a project or two I am making now...

Set up an off-screen cart that rolls along slowly (or a piston, but I think a cart would be less temperamental) and triggers dissolve key/switch setups connected to each cannon's emitter. The level would start off with one cannon firing, then 20 seconds in #2 starts, then #3, then #4.

It's a thought anyway and shouldn't take all that long to implement. Regardless, it's still a fun level! :)
