Description:
Although I doubt most of you decide not to skip the lengthy wall of text i always provide with my levels, heres another awesome description.  Wahaha. uploaded on lol_cave6, btw.
this cave was actually named after an orchestra piece, not a poem.  although now i cant find that piece anymore.  it sounded cool, and it sort-of fit, because no one would really want to wander into a random cave filled with dynamite, unstable rocks, strange crates that defy gravity until the lowest of the stack is destroyed, and crates of arrows containing a mysterious source of potential energy.
LOL_CAVE6
semi-speaking of which, HATPC is a really weird game.  Hannah can supposedly break a wooden crate by just touching it, jump about five times her height, and fall 100 times her height and still survive, but if she just BARELY touches a stalagmite/stalactite, she dies?  and she can only hold her breath for 12 seconds...?
did i mention this is on lol_cave6?
anyhoo, about the cave itself...
this is a hard level, despite the 3-4 hours i spent adding extra arrows to make the entire thing easier.  and the tutorial arrows.  Look, shos! now you will OBVIOUSLY know where to go!  even if there are multiple arrows pointing at different directions at the same spot.  theyre so helpful, right?
i'd just like to mention that this is uploaded on lol_cave6.
apparently this was supposed to be designed so that you could do either side first, but i was being stupid from day one and added the chest to the left side, and if you did the right side first, the boulders would get all screwed up because the first trap on the left side severely limits your space.  So if youre actually planning to beat the whole thing in one go, do the left side first.  or you could just beat each side individually, but if your doing the right side, make sure to do the first trap on the left before doing anything else. in general, just do the first trap on the left side first.
comment, rate, enjoy (or not), this is uploaded on lol_cave6.
dam, is this sudden feeling of delirium reaching anyone else?
i dont think i mentioned that this is uploaded on lol_cave6.

Well, that's because Hannah is not a human, she's a USUL. So it's completely different from a human

This cave deserves more attention, but caves like these have a problem: They're filled with too much things, and there's almost no space not used.

The following is entirely my opinion:

Orcasaur, when making levels, try to make them less cramped. When looking at this level, I noticed how everything was almost squeezed in, and thought at once that "this will be a hard level". Despite proving not to be of immense difficulty, the looks of the cave made me play the cave with a bad mindset, making me play slightly worse and I gave up quite quickly.

Less is more. Give the player some free space to move around in and explore the level. This makes the player feel like he is in control. Also, try to remove a few of the tutorial arrows - some of them aren't really needed, and only distract the player. If you try to get past a speed trap, it's easy to look at tutorial arrows for guidance. If you cut down on them, while keeping the essential ones, your cave will be easier to play but also easier on the eye.

Finally, and this is even more based on my opinion, try to make your cave look more "natural", so to speak. If you were to remove everything but the terrain, this cave would look quite odd - I prefer caves that could look pretty decent even if you were to keep only the terrain.

I just started playing this, and I like it a lot so far, even if it is crammed.

I'm confused about this level. Is it multi-pathed or am I supposed to know which way to go? (rhyming ftw)

I think you're supposed to go to the left first.

Orca's crazy huge description said:
