Title: What was so bad about the original Cinema design in Chex Quest 2?
Post by: lukefsje on February 03, 2021, 10:29:25 PM
The only thing about the level I found to be bad was the fact that the Red Key isn't actually used, but getting it triggers the area to the Yellow Key. A simple fix would've been to just have the area to the Yellow Key locked behind a Red Key Door. I feel like the other original level designs had more glaring issues, like the ugly gray textures used for the dark part in the Museum or the fact that you don't even need to go down and use the Blue Key Door in the Sewers.

I played it recently and i think it's the lack of feedback, the mandatory secrets, how much back tracking you have to do on a very linear looking level and also it's generally ugly
much like m1 feels a bit lackign due to it's only attraction being the cafeteria at the start, m2's only attraction is the animated screens.

I will give you a little indirect thank you in regard to the theatres in CQ3, since they are based on the theatre in TUCQ, although chuck managed to make a near exact copy based on just my screen shots.

That bring me to something I want you to do for me.

TUCQ release 7 has been stuck for a very long time, because of the theatre level!

It seems that while I am good at making levels look good, I am pretty bad at making good playable levels.

If you can give me suggestions on what kind of layout you think would be good, I might be able to finally finish E2M2, and that would mean the long awaited release 7 of TUCQ.

Can you guys help me on this?
