Platform Escape 2.01s

Submitted by gameslayer001
This bundle is marked as approved. It works and satisfies the submission rules.
Just like any other maze, platform style~!
===========
Use the arrow keys to move your unit through the levels.
Other Controls will be explained in game.
===========
Pretend the game is 2d, which means the camera will face directly down, and the perspective will be of that from a 2d game.
===========
I thought it was a neat concept, try it out for yourselves.
===========
Commands:

+Red Only+
-kill [color] (Kills the unit color)
-kick [color] (Kicks the player color)

+Everyone+
-view xxxx (Sets the camera distance from unit to fit the player's need)
-continues (Shows the amount of continues the players have)
-watch [color] (Locks the camera to that player unit color. Must be dead in order to perform this command)
-unwatch (Unlocks the camera if command -watch was used)
-die (Suicide)

===========
The game starts out with 20 continues. There are secret continues hidden about the levels, and every time everyone dies the level restarts with one less continue.
===========
3 Parts with 3 Bosses
===========
The game also has a few special objects the players have to use in order to beat the level.
The Special Objects consist of...
-Springs
-Reverse Gravity Totem
-Disappearing Springs
-Switches
-Copter (DK Barrel related)

Other objects include...
-Warps
-Disappearing Terrain
===========

Well, was that explaining enough?! TRY IT OUT!!!..

    On a map like this you want to cut lag/delay as much as humanly possible. Not showing part of it may cut it back a bit, but removing units/creating them when units get there would cut it down a lot more. That and removing the doodads.

    Anyways it's been a while. I hope he makes at least some progress.

    I believe it does leak some too, but I am not certain of this. I happend to know the creator pretty well, Ill ask him if he plans for an update.

    If you kick someone without killing them first, the level doesn't restart even though everyone is "dead".

    You should remove all the units in the previous levels to reduce potential lag.

    You should order the units in the next level to move to reduce potential lag for all the units moving at the same time.

    With the snake part leading up to the level 1 boss, you should kill the trigger after everyone has died, for when I have been playing, there had been many continues wasted on that part, so the trigger is running about 5 times and that ended up in delay for the host (me).

    I once encountered a bug with the level 1 boss where it kept automatically getting hit and we weren't hitting it.

    The part near the last boss, where you get Gryphon cannons + dizzy ghosts, you should stop the animation of the "dizzy spell" being cast because the animation makes it hard to see where the gryphon is facing.

    On the last boss, I think, players shouldn't be able to get hit when in the gryphon cannon.

    Oh god the creator of this epic map is ALSO you?! I completed* a cheated version of this map where there were 500 continues. It took us slightly over 2000 deaths to complete it :grin:

    I agree with all of manstie's post except for the last two points. But honestly, you have already spent much time on this, if you only add one thing please let it be the kick someone w/o killing them first bug.


    There's two bugs not mentioned in this thread, one of which can be used to skip levels, so I will not reveal it. The other is kinda humorous. Do this at the winning stage for best effect: Hold right arrow key, press F10, release right arrow key, press F10, repeat as many times as possible xD. Best with a script(I used autohotkey).

    Thanks for making this awesome map!


    *skipped the gryphon-only stage using the bug, wayyy too impossible to complete.

    you may have been alerted that someone was stealing your map preview and I am here to clarify: that is not so.

    I have always uploaded my map under its own image, but for some reason your map preview picture appeared for my last upload. This was not my intentions and I have changed it.

    Yea Delay and lagg destroy the game...maybe optimize coding?
    Anyway there is a bug if some1 leaves who is not dead, and all others die, they dont revive, just nothing happens at all.
    A simple workaround would a command like -restart oder so be,
    with which red could restart the current lvl(all die)
    Nevertheless this rules, 5/5

    Reached final boss. it has 7 lives? How do we even damage it.
    Sometimes we get stuck in middle when respawn from death of all players.
    well damage it by using gryffin shooting player to top fire.
    the scoreboard didn't update the health damaged in my game, so it's kinda buggy until we killed it, it has 7 lives.
    definitely worth 5.0 rating though!

    Gameslayer, are you still working on this map at all? This game is really good but there are some problems, for example the huge level with the randomize gyrphons is kind of unfair. There are also some bugs and some bonuses that are impossible to get currently, so I'd just like to know if there will ever be another ver.

    Rated 5/5 though, really unique game.

    I agree, the gryphons always sucked hard, but they are not randomized.
    Other than that tho, where do you see impossible bonuses?
    We played this through 2-3 times and got all bonuses.
    We played on a version with 100 lives tho.

    Yeah, in the "Extreme" hacked ver or w/e, all are possible. In the legitimate version, there are some bonuses blocked off by solid walls that you can't get to without cheating (pause glitch).

    Speaking of glitches, the pause glitch can allow you to do the game way too easily. I beat it in around 10-15 minutes game-time. (you can move red while paused)

    Some of the gryphons are random; they just patrol back and forth and face random directions on the way.

    +1 for the Chaos Faction bgm
    +1 for the 2D mechanism
    by the way, can't believe none of you post it yet, or maybe its just version 2.5 ultimate..., hold > arrow key, which is when you're moving to the right, don't let it go, tap < arrow key continuous, enjoy the potential momentum glitch. LOOOOL

    This is by far the best esacape I ever played.
    Definitely 5/5.

    The only downside is that it features (like most escape maps) a life system with far too less lives. I personally can't enjoy playing the first levels of the map over and over again, because I lost again my remaining 20 lives at a single difficult edge in a later part of the map.
    Difficult parts are nice, but I don't want to spend another 30 minutes to get there, after I died at it for the 1000th time.

    So, if there is any chance that the author will read this:
    Please enable the option to have more than 25 lives (probably infinite, its difficult enough though), or enable level save codes, or something similiar.

    It would definitely be less frustrating and even more entertaining.

    I would give you a 6/5 then.

    There is a (hacked) version, Platform Escape Extreme 2.5 that has infinite lives and few other level changes if you want. Looks, sadly, like GameSlayer left wc3, so I doubt he'll do any more updates.

    Yes he is gone. The bug only appears in the (inferior) hacked version.

    I attached a vanilla version with the only changes being:
    -50 starting lives
    -10 extra lives per Lightning

    We were able to kill the last boss with those extra lives
