View Full Version : Muddy Ruins (platformer)

These ruins sink in the muddy swamp and are very dangerous. And this swamp does not have a bottom. If you fall to a swamp, you will sink slowly. Be careful. (1~4player)

I have to say this is possibly your best yet. It had length, detail, and a fluid platforming adventure with no stalling points in the game except at well placed safety spots.

Flawless Design.

I concur. Amazing level design and great visuals that no one ever thought of! Mud + Ruins = Epic level experience! Great job Yu. Keep those platformers coming!!

Hello Sackies!

(I know it's been a while, but I'm going through exams the next couple of weeks, and I will highly unlikely be able to post within that time.)

Recently I've played a very awesome level by a very well known and inspiring creator: Yu-Kamone (http://lbp.me/u/yu-kamone) It's a platforming experience that really has it own unique style to it. And of course it features Mud! I really like mud! Anyway...
The level was published only 5 days ago, and it already has 5,000 plays! You can't expect less from such a well known creator, not to mention the 6 MM Picks featured on Kamone's earth.

The Gameplay
...really inspired me. It contains great gameplay and lots of fun when messing around with the mud and the creatinator. Many awesome contraptions and as always: some fluffy-bouncy-recolored-bouncepads! It has great replay-value when you're challenged to find 8 hidden gems throughout! They're all well hidden, so make sure you check every corner of the Muddy Ruins.

The Visuals
...are beautiful as always, amazingly detailed background which makes the title obvious. The overgrown ruins are sinking into the mud, and sometimes you have to move fast! Great use of 3D layer and awesome sinking effect if you fall into mud. Great mix of mud and ruins. It all comes nicely together with fitting gameplay and music.

My thoughts

The gameplay was filled with lots of platforming elements including some awesome contraptions. The theme was perfectly executed, and I wonder why no one have haven't pulled this off some time before - This is why I really enjoy Yu-Kamone's levels: #Fun #1-4 Players #Unique

The level is not a simple-built-level but it's so simple to play! No 1-hour-long intro with flickering lights that can cause cataracts, or a "3D FPS - 1 Player Vol. 5.7" level. Just a nice and snappy platformer with some awesome elements.

Here's a video of the level:


Huge thanks to PingPong91100 (http://www.youtube.com/user/PingPong91100?feature=watch) for recording this level!

Get out there and queue this level up (http://lbp.me/v/k9yb8k), it's definitely worth a play!
