Well, I played this flash game called The Unfair Platformer (http://www.kongregate.com/games/Eggy/the-unfair-platformer) a while ago and the first thing that came to my mind was that I could create a similar LBP map based on the same ideas of making funny traps and lying to the player.

What would you think? Would it be too annoying? Would everyone hate it or would people have a sense of humor?

Make it! I love those types of games that are intentionally frustrating. :p

Ahh really? Can you tell me the exact name of the map? I really love stuff like that.

Sorry, I can't remember and I don't have access to the PS3 right now :( It was nowhere near as punishing as The Unfair Platformer though :\

Play 'I Wanna Be The Guy' , it's just like the unfair platformer but better. Might give you a few ideas.
Actually, me and by brother were dooing something like this. We did have a set of spong swings you have to swing across, and on the second one, it goes to a cutscene camera just before you grab it, saying "Don't fall!".
You then proceed to fall and die as the cutscene camera stops you from controlling.

Actually, it doesn't.

They fixed that with 1.07 :cool:

Also, IWBTG ftw! ^_^

Yeah, we noticed that, so we're having the paintinator fall down in front of you instead and have you let go.

Feel free to use these ideas though, since I doubt mine'll ever get made.

I love I wanna be the guy, i got up to Dracula who i think was like my 2nd or 3rd last boss before my old laptop had to be formatted. :( Never tried to do it again, it took me a week to get past the moving spikes, there is literally 1 frame and 1 pixel of leeway there by the way, sooooooo difficult. Gotta love that game, has to be the most difficult platformer ever, it was a homage/parody to the platformers of old, it even used ideas and bosses from some of the hardest ones ever. Don't really knwo why the Mario bosses were there though, the only difficult Mario games were the Japanese versions really.

I've wanted to do a level like this since before the game came out, but meh, it wouldn't be as cool as IWBTG anyway, so...I'll pass. ... Maybe someday.

:p
