Fake Crates

Description:
Pretty unoriginal name, but the cave is alright. Thanks to Isa for editing help.

This cave is strange because it feels like it is a bit of a patchwork. I made quite  bit of this a while ago and some of it especially nearer to the end had many fake crate traps in it so I decided I couldn't really be bothered starting a cave in this theme again from scratch.

Some of the traps do not have fake crates in them as they were part of the original cave and I kept some of them to hold the cave together. Other traps I added fake crates to and some whole sections I covered with terrain and began again with fake crate traps.

Overall the cave is a pretty good difficulty I would say, but due to the way I wanted the cave played there are some unsatifactory traps that while I think the idea is good the execution could be better.

There are some sections that may be a bit puzzling due to the goals of the trap not being obvious enough. Please don't hesitiate to ask and I will try and describe what to do.

Either way I think that it should be possible for most people to beat a few traps and a couple of treasures are in sidetracking sections so by skipping a few treasures to may be able to continue furthur into the cave. Also looking at the map generated may help to deal with the fake crates.

A pretty good difficulty indeed. I haven't gotten too far, but it's very enjoyable so far. In fact, it's the first genuinely enjoyable cave I've played in a long time. Although I can't stand fake crates, so I'll probably start to get a bit more annoyed when more of them start to crop up.

Edit:  Actually, the fake crates are put in fairly predictable and conspicuous places, so I'm not even having to refer to the generator. Nice cave.

...try waiting for two boulders to fall down? Seriously, that trap is very easy, you can't really say it's a 4/5 in difficulty and absolutely not a 5/10 in general just because you can't get past the first trap.

You know, if I were making a level for this comp, I'd have fake crate EVERYWHERE, so as to hide where they'd actually come into play. I'm talking, fake terrain, fake air, fake secret areas... Any time there's multiple copies of the same object next to each other that can't be destroyed, fake crates. NOW use your precious map generator.

You know, something like this, only huge:
Code:

Yes, dammit. I always forget to click the final submit button at the bottom of the page once you have selected a level.


Check out "Forever" on Harumbaitester.

So far I've gotten 4 out of 6 chests, always died at the trap where you grab that fourth chest though. I hope that I'll beat this cave in this week.

9.5/10
Amazing!
3.5/5 — Challenging
Alright, I didn't beat this one in a week's time, but I got to the bottom right corner which I figure is far enough to rate it.

Quality cave indeed.
