Level Pit Maps


I've written some code to generate maps of Blackshift levels. For your entertainment, here are the top ten level pit levels, mapped:



The blue dot is the start, pink are enemies, and yellow to red is the danger rating (proportion of players who died at each location).

I was thinking it might be nice to put the maps in the level pit interface so you can see the layout of the level before you play it.

    1. Actually, I beat that level in the before-time as well as Wunk's "Safe Me". However, back in the day, sometimes the wins didn't count especially if you had a save tile. Where the hell is Wunk anyways?

    2. I fixed 666 because I didn't like your win Monsieur Mills. Too bad I can't get this Lenovo to load the program but, my Acer part has been shipped and I will be back. I try not to hide anything so you can see what you are up against."Blood in the Cut", gonna be tough, but I see some flaws in my level - ha ha ha, I am the master builder because I make you work. I screwed up and named a level twice the same name. It is on the board and methinks I am going Rob and push out multiple outcomes. Let's have fun but jesus, someone else post a level. At this rate, I cannot be level queen because, you guys are beating all my 27 pages of levels and my score doesn't count. Damn bad luck and Rob, the levelelater posts don't help in figuring out the level. You gotta put real time stuff on that thread so, we can find out what is hidden.

  3. Rob, check out Counter Failure. If you kill the last two enemies at the same time, the counter reads 0 0 but, you cannot go thru it. I thought this might only be with lasers but it fails if you blow up the last two enemies at the same time.

  4. You must have found another flaw in the game Mills!

    Rob, tried to load the program in an identical Lenovo, same operating system (Win8.1), and it locked up ("not responding"). I have no idea of the problem - will try it again and see if I get a crash dump file in windows where ever that is located in Win8.1!

    3. Okay Mills, the Microsoft Win10 virus hit this computer a while back and loaded Win10 without my permission but I cancelled the install but lost everything in the process when I went back to Win8.1. That may be the problema if it re-flashed something. The Acer is Win7 and works but it is in the shop right now. Thanks, yes, that helps!!

  5. oh Tatascan!!! i'm so happy you built some new great levels!
    Two levels in 2 days!!!
    and they are fucking good; i gave a star to both!!!

    "Easy Level" was not easy, and "impossible level" was not impossible!!! ;)

    i hope you are going to build again and again... One level a day would be crazy! :)

    PS: i dunno why, your impossible level appears twice... i tried the second one to see if it was different, but it's not...
