    Default The Nectar Sector

    THE NECTAR SECTOR

    Well, after 2 months of work, I can finally bring you a new level, and not only just a new level, but 2 new levels! Finally, another installment in the Honey Factory Fiasco series. So what is all the buzz going on in The Nectar Sector?

    It seems the Queen, in an attempt to avoid danger, has moved her Drone Bee production much deeper into the honey hive. You will have to platform your way through The Nectar Sector just to see what is going on. But bee careful. Despite the absence of the Queen, there might still be some Drone Bees around causing some mayhem.

    “A real buzz to play!”

    “Shookie has crafted a bee-eautiful world full of honey waterfalls or honeyfalls and fantastic gameplay.”

    "The best Honey Hive installment yet!"

    “An exuberant and sweet honey-filled dessert of a level!”

    "The visuals are like food for your eyes!"

    “And yet another solid platforming level that Bee real fun to play”

    “A sticky sweet pot of fun and excitment which features rock solid level design and well thought out gameplay.”

    “I like how attract-o-gel perfectly fits enviroment and doesn't impede clean flow of the game.”

    “The Nector Sector is an enjoyable, colourful platformer with unique visual appeal, and the use of attract-o-gel only improves the game quality!”

    I had the honor of testing the early stages of this level and played the full one last night. Loved it. The visuals are off the charts. You've created a very vibrant atmosphere and it's just so full of life. The platforming is great and of course it wouldn't be a Shookie level without massive amounts of bubble combos. I look forward to playing this again. Outstanding job.

    just a quick heads up on posting images. I see those are linked from LBN. You have to un-check that little box at LBN that says "retrieve and host locally" or else it makes them really small. I'd just Link them directly from LBP.me and you'll get a bigger image, like this:

    Oh shookie, you little bee . You diligently composed this level and managed to make a flowing and flawless game, pleasing to the eye and interesting to play. I like the way how attract-o fits into your level, like it was born there Great job.

    I think these puns will be the end of me! (In a good way)

    Gave it a play and liked what I saw! Although I got 3/4 of the way through the level, I couldn't continue because I had to tend to some real life issues. I'll come back again and edit this post when I haul my butt through the rest. Sorry!

    Well.
    I played at this level last night,I very much appreciated the original design,the graphic details and the environment!
    It was a really good job.
    think of being in a beehive was really great!
    I had some problems at the end taking the block for hit the bees,I was playing with three friends and sometimes we did take us rather than taking the block.
    But it was nice and fun to see us launch out to the bees! Lol!

    Congratulations! Very good job!

    Another great job on a bee level. The attract-o-tweaker use is nicely done, and the creatinator and grabinators are clever. The visuals are polished, too, thanks to material choices, nice decoration use, and cool sackbots. The music choices are great, too, including a nice remake of a classical music, Flight of the Bumblebee, that fitted well in this level. The throwing the combs at the honey pots part are a nice addition to this level because of the attract-o-tweaked materials that made it more fun. This level is bee-tastic.
    VISUALS: 5/5
    SOUND: 5/5
    GAMEPLAY: 5/5
    OVERALL: A yay, heart and positive feedback

  19. Thanks!

    Nooooooo! say it aint so! I can imagine you're probably getting tired of them though. I've been meaning to go back and play the new ending and will probably do that this weekend. Really good level Shook and I'm glad to see it getting some good plays

    Thanks limi, I was either gonna put that mechanic in the nectar sector or as part of the goo refinery which I am working on, but found a much better creatinator for the goo refinery.

    @biorogue, I am not tired of the theme, its just really hard to come up with new ideas for levels in the same theme. Attractogel is the only thing that made me wanna come back to the series. Thanks.
