Jumping jellyfish! New level from Buboy?!
So after a month of experimenting and trying to bring back my skills in HATPC, I finally finished this one. It serves as a comeback so I became ambitious and automatically set the size into a large one which I rarely do. I also utilized ladders this time! I noted that someone suggested to make a cave with more space so this is my attempt. The design pattern is unusual though.
In making the cave, I somehow became attached to it, playing it over and over again in the process of making it. I made 1 or 2 traps daily. It's called Jailbreak Jumble due to the large (not pure) metal wall in the middle. There's also a background story about that: Hannah was locked in jail but she dug the ground to escape but soon, she found out that the wall is extended up to the bottom.
I also encouraged everyone who wants to review the cave to tell his/her favorite trap (so I can recreate something like that) and the most annoying trap (to avoid it next time). Try to get the heart and the gem if you want to. Trivia: I only used the secret area tile once for a great purpose.
I almost forgot, it's up in playacave (my new account since I can't open my old ones). Open your HATPC window now!

I'm not far enough to rate, but so far I can say it's incredibly frustrating how non-straightforward the traps are. I rarely ever finish a trap on my first try, let alone my 5th try.

lol. i didn't ask if you're british. i asked if you can speak the British language! you know, it's like English, but with a wierd accent!
pronouncing "rare" as re-ah, or 'the hobbit' as lah-ob-eat.
no 'r's alive, you can't hear a british guy says 'there' the-r. it will always be 'the-ah'...

This level is very good. Every trap, while difficult and sometimes non-intuitive, is well-timed, creative, and fun. It was definitely too hard to beat (for me at least) without the use of checkpoints, though I feel like making the level easier would lower the quality of the traps. I also find it hard to complain about the traps being non-intuitive because while I did have to play many traps multiple times before I figured them out, you usually did design them so that you could see the entirety of the trap before activating it. The aesthetic is as good as it gets. The only thing this level is really lacking is a unique layout. Despite its open aesthetic design, the level is very linear.
I found it really hard to come up with a favorite and least favorite trap for this. My least favorite trap was the one in the bottom right (with the five arrows), simply because it's too bland. I couldn't come up with a single trap that I liked the most, though ones that come to mind are the one with the falling crates in the water section, the trap directly after my least favorite trap, and the one directly to the left of the one in the top right corner.

I can see why that trap is bland. I noticed that you can "cheat" by going down directly rather than going up to avoid the arrows. I edited that part out but maybe it's too late.
It's good to be back.
