A survival challenge.

Bounce and swing your way through a constant moving environment. An ode to the lbp2 level Hedge Hopping by Mm.

OMG! Queued!! : D
Edit: Well, I have to say ... is so far my favorite survival challenge! Already played it about 20 times, boing boing!, I love it! <3
Good work! yes sir. :D

Oh, by the way, I found a small bug, where instead of dying from touching the fire, I fell out of level.

Oops, sorry i wrote u a visitor message on this one, i thought u didnt even showcase it...

Well, its a supercool survival level, something like this was really missing on the vita... it really got some replayability, i played it 4 times just to get some good score lol... anyways got to rank 8 but i guess it wont last for very long..

The Point Combo Chaining is really neat, and the touch abilities are implented in a way that it doesnt get too anyoing lol ^^

looks good, plays good, could be longer tho lol ^^ i could have played it forever....

Got a chance to play this last night! Awesome job! I liked all the colors and background stuff you have on this. I guess something to make you smile before you get drilled by spikes!! lol

Quite an assortment of stuff to keep you on your toes too! Wow! I played it several times and was amazed how much I scored even though I didn't think I lasted that long. Definitely will try this one again soon!

I wonder if it should go a bit slower at first and ramp up, but after a few tries I got the hang of it a bit better.

Nice work!! :)

Reminds me of the one you made on the PSP, except the visuals on this are 100x better and the touch screen play makes things even more hectic! Absolutely brilliant level Velcro, loved every minute (although I only survive one minute at a time haha). Downloaded it because I'll be wanting to play again :)

:D and a <3 for ya

First thing's first, it's awesome as always Velcro. :)
Second thing: I hearted you as a creator. You're awesome. Thank you for being awesome.

Third thing: The only real compliant that I have about this level is that you call it a survival challenge.
My personal belief is that you cannot call it a 'survival challenge' if there is anyway for the level to end without you... well dying.
The mere fact that there is an end to your level to me makes it just a score challenge, and not a survival because the point isn't to survival the longest (and thus most likely get the highest score) but simply, and only, to get the highest scores thru superb bubble chains.

Does that make sense?
Maybe I shouldn't try and argue semantics on LBPC though. hah

Thanks for your comments, and thanks for pointing out that bug. I will fix that ASAP.

Thanks Tea! Glad you enjoyed the touch mechanics. I know you are like me and don't really care to much for that. But if you liked it, I must have did something right.

Jumping Jack flash its a gas gas gas!! Gotta love the Stones!

Thanks for the review JWW! When I played you beta level last week, I was kind of in awe of it. When you explained the logic behind it, I got a headache. lol. I told you I was working on a level similar to yours but totally different, and this was it. I cant' wait for the public to play yours. Mine is so simple compared to what you are working on. Thanks again buddy!

Thanks for the review Luke, and the heart. What you said makes a lot of since actually. I guess I called it a survival challenge because you only have one life. But after hearing your point, I think I will go and take that off the title now, because you are correct! :D

Most welcome! I remember you saying you had one and really enjoyed what you came up with. Quite a variety of challenges!

Mine should be done in the next few days. Putting the finishing touches on it now. Glad you enjoyed! :)

I replayed this in mp... but i discovered a major flaw... if one player dies, it sends u right away to the exit... im not sure if this is intended, i guess not since its a survival challenge and it should be last player standing... might wanna look into that... i guess it allways hard to multiplayer test levels, especially on the vita... i see mp flaws all the time there lol...

But despite that its even more fun in mp...

Oops, lol.

Well, I can honestly say I did not test this in MP.

That is weird. I will have to check into that. Thanks Tea! :)

Bloody useless at timmed jumps, so though I played it more than several times, I did t get far:( but nice slick simple game play, and very quick and easy to restart, cooleo :)

Sorry you did not make it too far. I think the more I create the more sinister I get with my level designs. :gasmask:

I have your new level queued up, and will give it a go ASAP.

Made a couple updates over the last couple days. I dropped the survival challenge tag, added a new badge, and cleaned up a few things visually.

Nothing was added as far as scoring goes, so I wouldn't alter the high scores. ;)

Thanks to everyone playing this.
