The hack came out strange

Reviewed By: diablo666 on 03 Jan 2022

A kind and fresh hack based on screenshots. And what is in fact? Let’s sort it out in order and on the shelves.

First of all, I will say that not all levels came out good or interesting. Why is that?

1. Some levels have a palette that scares me. Actually, in some levels there are acidic or indecent palettes for levels. One of the reasons that alerted me

2. Levels in most cases: The level design is very strange. Spring scattered very messy, somewhere there is too much Power Up, and in some cases - I came across these diverse platforms rastavleny or out of place (white clouds almost everywhere, but they are distinguished at the Level of “Luchevykh clouds”, where tuchowie cloud - grey, and the clouds - white”) or not at all adequate to the stage

3. In some levels - enemies are out of place at all. In the forest level, there are enemies from the “desert”. I can still understand scorpions and birds, they are even less suitable, BUT kangaroos and ostriches - I’m sorry - I can’t find a connection.

4. Confusing levels. There are few of them, but they really exist. In one celestial level, where you have to jump on clouds - I was looking for a way to the finish line for 30 minutes. That’s a lot. And there are cave ones, but with water. Because they show us the level at the beginning: “Cave with lava”, and you think to take a red pet, and then you go in and there’s water… Honest deception? no!

5. These are the volcanoes levels. For some reason, they made it so that hot stones do not fly from a volcano - but from (honestly, they are flying from nowhere… either from the platform part of the location, or from the lava) - and this is not only confusing, but also a really strange idea.

However, I will highlight that there are also interesting levels that are invented in this hack.

1. Night Forest (or scary forest) - this palette is perfect. Atmospheric and a little scary

2. The Desert of Ghosts. The music and the situation are interestingly chosen, so it was interesting for me to pass it

3. Broken underwater level. It came out strange, hardcore, but fascinating.

4. Level up for Speed. Amazing timings are invented, but fun and passable

In addition, I encountered bugs along the way. An example is: “The bird has turned into a cloud cloud” or “The graphics of the life received from the stone is broken”

In general, if we talk about the hack, it came out in total - strange and mostly boring and annoying. Although I went with the pets, but - honestly, I don’t want to overdo it.

The phrase about the hack: “Not my cup of coffee!”

Version 1.0 Recommended - No
