    posted a message on [1.8] Cramped: A Claustrophobic Puzzle Map (Created for ModJam 4)

    Cramped is a puzzle map in which all of the rooms are 3x3 or more.
    WELL... I may have cheated on two of them, but still, pretty small.
    It was made for ModJam 4, a mod and map making contest in which you have to create it within four days.
    The map is shorter than I wanted it to be, and is unpolished in places due to the ModJam thingy. Compared to other maps, it probably sucks. Bad.
    Still, I'm sure you'll find plenty of enjoyment in this baby!
    Features:
    • 15-30 minutes of gameplay!
    • Quality puzzles! Hopefully.
    • 1.8 features from the latest snapshot, like um.... titles! And fancy particle effects! Yeah, those. I'm not really a genius, you know. :P
    • No boring and unoriginal parkour or mazes! Who likes unoriginal parkour or mazes, anyway?
    • Easy to medium gameplay that probably requires you to have brain surgery! Yai. Brain surgery.
    • Wait, did I say that no one like unoriginal parkour or mazes? Take that. Everyone likes unoriginal parkour and mazes. But they are unoriginal, so let's not put that in there.
    • Exposed redstone in the Drowning puzzle because I was a Cleectiderp but couldn't fix it due to time constraints, it's pretty large scale -_- I may fix it if I have time, sorry!
    • A random quote at the end of the map, because I just so happen to have read that poem.
    Trust me, being surrounded in notes is fun.You'll hate love it! More pictures:
    YOU MUST USE THE LATEST SNAPSHOT AND BE ON SINGLE-PLAYER! Otherwise, things might geta little... er, cramped.

    This looks like a hidden gem. As being a map reviewer for several months, it fits my fancy.

    I will try this, and give feedback ;)

    Hey, Farenheit! Really enjoying your map, it completely took me by surprise :)

    Question:

    Where is the 4/5 bacteria? Could you at least give me a hint onto where it is? Thanks!

    DEFINITELY reviewing Ender tomorrow or the next day, and it is definitely going to be more detailed than usual due to the wait you had to go through... :(

    *absence?*

    Le sigh. *sarcasm* It's another miraculous comeback by Collectics yai. I'm so excited! *sarcasm*

    Since I don't want to write 3 paragraphs about this, here's a simple math equation:
    School + Hypixel server testing/playing/helping people + IRL events = hiatus from here. And I am very sorry that I have delayed so many of your reviews.
    There. Done.

    I still want to keep this business going no matter what happens to me, so I decided to do a little schedule: each section lasts a week.
    • 1st Week: Submit your applications! I'll review the maps ASAP.
    • 2nd Week: Apps are closed! I'll take the time to review the remaining applications as well as play the maps that I want to play.
    • 3rd Week: Apps are still closed, I will take a break from reviewing to work on It Keeps Happening :D and do other things.
    • Cycle begins again.
    This will ensure that all applications will be reviewed as well as give me some free time to do stuff. Sounds good? Great! Let's accept some review requests. Applications close November 26. Submit now!

    *reviewrequest!*

    Heh. Since it seems like more than 2 players I might not be able to review it. I'll see if I can round up some players. I may accept it.

    *THEDUEDATEISNOVEMBER23OHNO*

    May look at it before November 23, if I can't beta test it in time, I'll certainly try to review it for you.
    I would suggest getting some pictures up though to give me some first impressions. ;)

    *demosnipMarkdemo*

    Hmm.... If I were you, I would probably (now that I think about it) wait until the map is completely finished before it is released to the public. Of course you can alpha test with testers of your choice via PM and use that as a disguise for your demos, but demos can simply be a way to show that you rushed the map to release it early.
    Regardless of that, I'll test and give feedback on the thread, but won't review until you give me a proper release.

    Looks great! I'll consider. I hope I get enough free time even in March. :D

    Looking forward to it!
    Seems like it is going to be a head-to-head battle: Ender by Chronos vs Slenderman by CIA. Let's see who gets the better score! :D

    Update on Ragecraft II: Insomnia: Brimstone River was insane. Half of my total death count (53 already) has been from skeletons shooting me into the lava. That was before I learned what blocks do.

    Oh, did I mention Gunter01 completed the map on Hard difficulty with 0 deaths?
    And all of the emerald blocks?
    Avoiding all of the traps?
    Scratch me saying that The Sketch is a no-life. He is a no-life.

    posted a message on [Horror] [Puzzle] [1.7] Trapped In Innsmouth (with Resource Pack!) (1,700+ Downloads!)
    Finally :D

    Trapped in Innsmouth by CthulhuToo
    Played in v1.7.2.

    Creativity: 2.5. ​This is a room escape puzzle with a horror theme. Although the creativity is increased by the special effects and overall theme of the map, it falls slim due to the repetitive Minecraft mechanics (crafting and smelting) that are the main feature of the puzzle. I feel like Cthulhu could have added more puzzles to the map using other mechanics to balance these out.

    Difficulty: 3. The map is a perfect difficulty for what is being offered. As long as you know basic crafting/smelting recipes, you will have a delightful time trying to figure out what to do next. The mapmaker gives only a subtle hint on what to do next at each step, encouraging you to think.

    Detail: 2. The special effects and jump-scares go very well with the tone of the map, and the beginning story really sets the mood for what will come. However, the story is inconsistent during the rest of the map, lowering the atmosphere of the map. Also, the cell could need some more work: I would recommend adding some more furniture to make the cell detailed, and maybe add some block variation to the walls.

    Gameplay and Experience: 2.5. The gameplay fits well with the atmosphere, and the difficulty is perfect for what you will be experiencing. But, the lack of detail and the need for more mechanics severely limited my enjoyment of this map. Nonetheless, this is still a fantastic map that any puzzle fan should try if they have 15 minutes to spare.

    + Great difficulty.
    + Gameplay superb; it encourages you to think.
    - Could need more work on detail and atmosphere.
    - Creativity is decreased due to repetitive Minecraft mechanics coming into play.

    Overall Score: 2.5 + 3 + 2 + 2.5 = 10/12. Fantastic.
    Keep it up, Cthulhu! Diamonds to you. :)

    The Collectics Seal of Approval has dawned on you, levitated you up into the air, and did other happy things etc.
    If It Keeps Happening ever gets finished, I'll be sure to send it to you!

    (I hope that the setblock command won't crash your computer, I'm currently learning how to use it right now)

    Okay. No making assumptions about time, that last week was crazy with all the events.
    From now on, I will only announce a review when it is ready. Of course there is the Reviews In Progress button, and I'll update that when I am playing a map. But I know you guys are furious because you didn't get your review on time....
    I'll try to post a review here when it is ready.
