In Response To: Re: Eternal review *sploilers* (blake37)

Thanks for the review man. This is the first full review we've gotten :-) I think Forrest was getting a little discouraged by the lack of praise...

And, when I designed level 8, I really didn't take into account that you may begin the level with a small amount of health. In fact, during testing (when I make a map, I test ALOT, like, every time I make a change, or add an area, I test it), there was a 2x health canister, as I had assumed that you'd enter the level with a decent amount of health, but I guess that's just because I've never made a map for a scenario before. In fact, during development, there was a fusion cannon at the beginning with plenty of ammo, as I wasn't aware that you wouldn't HAVE the fusion cannon at all in Chapter 1. So it was alot harder than I had planned. I had to take out alot of baddies. You should've seen the big battles-even with the fusion cannon I had trouble staying alive.

Anyway, we're glad you liked it :-). Chapter 2 coming Soon™.

: ok, Eternal report from me, who have finely played through the whole fist
: chapter.

: level one: loved level one, it felt just like one of the really confusing M1
: levels, i couldent figure out what to do for the longest time. i really
: liked the long paralell hallways, every time i went through them i
: expected to see the big platform room for colonly ship for sale. thare was
: a little bug with some of the fighters whare they would get stuck in a
: little cornor. it was by that tall door that doesn't open in one of the
: big hallways.

: level two: this one kinda reminded me of that evil level, i can't remember
: the name, but the one whare you had to go through the little passage way
: with a really fast current and flip those four switchs. it was the big
: rooms on the sides that reminded me of that. i got the bug that was
: mention before about the secerate room as well. the ending was neat
: "wait, what now??" only thing i didn't really like is the seage
: texture, i looks just like the floor to me, this can be comical to watch,
: but it is kinda bland.

: level three: got the good ole' WTF?? begining, first time i played it, i just
: froze at the sight of the juggie and all his little minions. then i was
: shot repeatedly and killed and had to do again. i liked the graud hallway
: thing or whatever, made it pretty tough for me. little bug, in the areas
: whare you have the multi colored bars like the juggie cages, you see the
: bars, but inbetween them you only see white.

: level four: i liked the hunter ambush, keeps ya from getting yer bearings
: back.
: intersting to see the other side of tycho, what happebed that he wanted to
: kill humanity and took pyschotic pleasure from every death on the marathon
: and colony? anyway, very well done map. some of the hunters looked like
: they were hanging from the celling befor they were activated. liked the
: level, and i couldent find the teleport out place for the longest time, it
: was kinda funny, me cursing at my computer. so i failed the first time i
: went through, so on to

: level five: neat little trap at the begining, it took me awhile to find the
: switch behind the piller. this is a nice big map, with a lot of different
: areas to explor, and i mostly liked, except for all the random polygon
: triggers. that started to piss me off towards the end. but i liked
: durandales terminal, his good ole wit.

: Level six: my favorit of chapter one, it's awesome, i love everything about
: it everything, give the guy that made it a ice cream sandwich or sumin.

: Level seven: very weird, i was almost sick by the end because of the fish eye
: thing. is the dream speaker dude durandale? it sounds like him to me

: level eight: adam, that is the hardest ambush ever, not because of the
: montsers or the small space, but because of the absance of rechagers, and
: then thares another one!!! gahHh!! ok, very cool adam, i really liked it,
: not the ambush of curlty and badness and whatever, but everything eles was
: very cool.

: level nine: like level five on a much smaeller scale. pretty stright forward,
: pretty nifty agin, what happened to make tycho hate humanity? he's so
: loyal, if he had arms, he would give us a hug. anyway, liked the terminals
: the most, espesly the, hay!! i'm not dead!! one

: level ten, or X: creepy man, whats with all the weapons? is it for the next
: chaper? again, i think the dream speaker is durandale

: ok, thats what i have to say about each level. wonderful job you guys, can't
: wait for the next one!
