Level description: "Spirits of the departed celebrate the Darkhallow on Halloween night. It is a time of awakening, celebration and home coming. Visit the graveyard, see the sights but be careful or you may join the spirits in their eternal mischief."
I've tried my hand at making a more straightforward platforming level, Halloween themed and full of bubble combo goodness. I've partially met my original goals but I'll let you be the judge of that. I'm happy to do F4F for people who wish, just let me know your requests and I'll get on it presently.

Excellent platformer Trindall. Lots of classic Halloween images entwined with some great platforming ideas. I loved the interweaving path through the warehouse enviroment at the start. This then leads you into the graveyard enviroment with lots of animated ghosts. I got stuck trying to get up and over the first tree and somehow managed to fluke it by jumping onto the ledge at the front layer and missing all the bubbles at the top. Soon after that you encounter my favourite part - the flipping stairs mechanisms. very well done. The length and pace of this level felt just right. Well done mate. Hearted and smiley faced.

What to say?...
I loved it!
It's a really nice platformer with great visuals and awesome use of the stickers.
Some really fun moments and a gameplay with a great pace.

It seems that the flipping stairs is the standout favorite among players. I had originally intended it to be tombstones that flipped but it was too unwieldy an idea for the player to be jumping on the tops of tombstones for no real reason so I changed it to stairs.
Thanks for the feedback on the level. Cheers.
Great work Trindall, this was a real treat to play. Your use of stickers was what really caught my attention, especially at the point where the stair platforms flip over to reveal spikes. It was touches like that that made this so enjoyable. The pace was consistently fun and the interweaving design kept my thumbs nice and busy. Very nice work indeed

If I could have been done a week or two earlier maybe I could have risen with the wave of Halloween focused players to get more exposure but that is just how it turns out sometimes.
Great entry for the competition! Like others, my favorite part of the level was your use of stickers (the fire animation being my favorite). But I'll add to that your great use of layers, especially with the rotating stairs.
My only complaint is the use of R1 when crossing certain areas. I guess I'm a bit bias because I hate that particular gameplay, but I still managed to pass it once I took my time.
Good luck in the competition!
I'll play through your latest level here presently and write up some feedback for you as well. Cheers.
Thanks for checking out the level.

I played this level and i have to say it was really nice. Firs of all is amazing use of stickers - ghosts(great idea to make them in this way), lightning, ivy and fire animation, especially fire animation, i love it. Graphic looks pretty, stickers added really a lot to visuality. Gameplay is good too, i like part with rotating stairs and zombies hands under it looks great. Simply good job
Thanks for the time. Cheers.
