AAA Battery by Alpaca Raider

Fun little beginner level. I don’t know if I would have started with the camera move for a beginning level, or at least might have made it player enabled or had more of a starting delay because i found it a bit challenging to keep up. For a moment I was worried the whole thing was going to be camera movement, hah.

I think the puzzle of getting all the Jems was fun and quite clear. I love that you integrated all the powerups into the level. I appreciate that you had a checkpoint. The use of arrows was good, but I would probably turn off the old arrows if possible, as the new arrows turn on. It started to get a little bit cluttered after a while.

Overall really fun, neat level and a few tweaks from a perfect beginner level. Keep at it!

Nice use of backdrop and hidden terrain to make a feeling of inside and out. I like that you used spikes as decorations in some places. You definite nailed the desert temple, metroidvania type of vibe.

The armor was a nice way to make it easier for casual players. I’m glad you put a checkpoint in because I died near the end. I think you make good use of backtracking to force players to cover the same space multiple times.

I love the spike droppers in the beginning making the space feel trapped and dangerous without actually killing the player.Great casual, beginner friendly level overall.
