View Full Version : Favorite Level Set!

Alright, I thought it would be fun if everybody voted for what their favorite level set was, and then if they could respond in this thread with why the picked that one. I'll go first.
It's very hard to pick a favorite, but I think I'll have to go with Into the Fire. I really like that, even though the levels are compact, they really cause me to get stumped over and over. Oh, and I didn't design any levels in that set, so I'm not biased! ;)
Also, you can have only 10 options in the poll, so if your answer is "other", please explain why too!
I consider the Egyptian Adventure level set to be Core Concepts' magnum opus. Simply brilliant! I could actually mention something fantastic about each level, but here are a few thoughts off the top of my head.
1) The looks of many of the levels are fresh and unique. Just opening 5_Causeway, for example, was fun. 12_Into the pyramid knock my socks off. I had never seen a level like it before. (Little did I know!!!)
2) The levels were named with such care. (e.g.,16_Sentinels) The set really felt cohesive.
3) The designer(s)(?) really had a sense of humor. 22_Rubble Trouble was so much fun to solve. 15_Column was brutal but fun.
4) I was never so relieved to see slivers of ice in a level as I was the day I opened 35_Waking Up in the Deep.
5) My two favorite levels in the set are 43_South House (my favorite and also the level that took me the longest to solve) and 44_Over the Wall (I still don't have a blue gem for this one.)
Sphinx, I mean, Thanks for challenges Core Concepts!
I voted for the original 80 levels. I stumbled upon the game before there were all of the many level sets that are available today. So I played those original levels over and over again. I'm still amazed at how well they were designed. I'm surpsied I even managed to solve them as I look back at them now and I'm not sure I still could. Level 72 was one that had me stumped for awhile. I just couldn't figure out how to make the arrow do what I wanted. On so many of the levels, you had to use a combination of tactics to solve just a small part of the puzzle. Great stuff.
I noticed that someone voted for Labyrinth as their favorite set. This is definitely my favorite set of the moment. I'm taking a break from Trickier Trails. I have about 10 levels left to solve and they're honestly too tough for me right now. After taking a long break from the game, I hate to admit it but I've lost some of my puzzle-solving skills. I did purchase and play the Desert Discoveries set which I enjoyed a great deal. Yes, it's an easy set but I enjoy the easy levels from time to time. Plus, the challenge is as always - finding all those hidden points to get a higher score. I also played some of Richie again as well. Now I'm working on Labyrinth. I think this was one of the last sets I played a long time ago. I only managed to get 50% complete before life got in the way and I was away from the game for awhile. It's a great set though. So much time must have gone into the design of all the levels. Anyone who has ever read my posts over the years knows that I'll take any opportunity to confess that I don't like levels where you have to manipulate a lot of creatures. For me, the Labyrinth levels are the kind I really enjoy. The kind where if you only have a few minutes, you can sit down, solve a few of the smaller "puzzles within the puzzle", save your game, and come back to it. Great stuff.

I, have voted for Labirinth. I like this levelset because i have few time to spend to play. I'm waiting CoLa infact in the Quatryn Yellow, Silver and Blue there are 4.000+4.000+4.000 levels; 12.000 little and fun levels:).
I agree, Micky. I've been playing the Labyrinth set for about a week now and it's great. When you only have a few minutes to play the game, it's the perfect level set. I'm enjoying not only trying to solve the levels but am trying to blue all the levels and go for high scores.
