The Drowned Dungeon
created by Bonner123

The Drowned Dungeon by Bonner123 is a level built around the PotC pack. I did take a brief hiatus from LBP, so perhaps this is just from my inactivity during the time of water level spam on Cool Levels, but I have yet to see a level built around the PotC pack that actually brings new concepts to the table. That is, until now. The Drowned Dungeon is a fun level with solid platforming that, while not being mind-blowingly innovative, utilizes water in some interesting ways.

The Drowned Dungeon looks very much like a level straight from the PotC pack. It's no Interstellar Infiltration, but there's not much to complain about visually. Some players might be slightly turned off because Bonner123 didn't created original enemies, which he even acknowledges as a joke, but it's not that big of a deal. However, some original enemies would be preferable. Some of the underwater sections could have used better lighting, but none of these are big complaints.

Bonner123 manages to inject a sense of humor into this level, which might catch some players off guard. At first, I thought it was going to be a somewhat serious epic adventure. That was until I ran into the first speech bubbles. While I don't think the dialogue is as funny as in a Lordmagicpants level, there are a couple parts that will, at the very least, make you smile.

Like I said earlier, this level has some great platforming action going on. I think the reason the humor threw me off was because of how smart the level design was. The puzzles were pretty easy but they were very clever and complemented the level well. Relying largely on raising and lowering the level of the water, The Drowned Dungeon utilizes water in some very creative ways and is definitely one of the better water-based levels I've played.

The Drowned Dungeon is a good level. You will have a lot of fun with this one if you're looking for a good water level. If you currently have creator's block, The Drowned Dungeon might be able to get you out of it.

Thanks for the review and i'm glad you liked it! The level isn't my best looking level because I focused on gameplay and didn't want to waste thermo on detail or any other nonsense like that. Oh, and I suck at creating enemies :p I'll address the lighting problem when I can. Thanks again.
