Who made the toughest levels in CCLP3

Who made the toughest levels in CCLP3, on average?  

14 members have voted

  1. 1. Which of these designers has the highest average taken over the level numbers of the levels they designed in CCLP3? Basically, on average how far are their levels in the set?

  2. 2. How about for these other designers? (This one is much closer, so just answer by what you feel and I'll post the exact results later.)

After playing a few hours and raging on Old Frog New Tricks, I think 144 and 149 should have switched level positions. My friend and I agree it would have worked better as a bonus level.

I dunno...Mr. McCallahan Presents just seems like the perfect way to finish a levelset...it would just be too gauche to end the pack with Old Frog.

That's why I think Mr. McCallahan Presents works better at 144 than 149. Casual players would have far more trouble with Old Frog in my opinion.

I think casual players would have had more than their share of trouble by the time they got to level 144, regardless of which level was placed in that slot. ;)

Others did the math so I didn't get around to announcing the actual results. All I can add is JB's average is 91.9 and Joshua's 63.5. I didn't calculate for designers with only a few levels.

 

Interesting about the Spirals different versions. I had assumed WEP4 had the corrupt version and it was fixed for BoWEP.

I agree. :)

Besides, Mr. McCallahan Presents perfectly finishes off the story as well.

Right, and having the cypher password allows them to "legally" skip over 144.

 

- Madhav.

I was kind of hoping Recurring Dream would be the last level for a while with all of its references (which I found more clever than my own in Mr. McCallahan Presents). But I like the way it turned out.

Eh, maybe Recurring Dream would have been better as level 144.

 

By the way Madhav, you and JB have my favourite CCLP3 levels I've played so far: Reoccuring Dream and Mr. McCallahan Presents. (Y) (Y)

Perhaps the storyline for CCLP4 should be about an entire clubhouse created by Chip -- after which he gets amnesia and must rediscover his own path.

I think it should expand on the "relationship" between Chip and Melinda, sitcom-like. By the time of CCLP19, it could be a bona fide soap opera.

If amnesia is involved, it's already going down the soap opera path. :P

Melinda should take advantage of his amnesia and do a mindf--- with him.

 

"Ok, Chip, go back into the clubhouse. No, you aren't a member of the Bit Busters yet. No, you haven't yet earned the right to take me to the E-prom. No, I'm not giving you any hints regarding 'You Can't Teach An Old Frog New Tricks.' Yes, you must complete 'Bloblake' and 'the end of all time.'"

This is actually pretty great! I can totally see this happening as the CCLP4 storyline :)

If Chip has to solve "the end of all time," the quest should be to scavenge the clubhouse for resources that can be used to build a cryogenic storage unit. :P

Or to figure out how to leap forward a billion or so years (apparently such a thing is theoretically possible).

 

 

Then he gets to the future and finds that his computer had been unplugged by his next-of-kin nearly a billion years previously, when he had gone mysteriously missing and was eventually presumed dead...

I love how Chip can become stumped by mundane things like that (such as having to check all of the boxes on the control computer when the clubhouse was burning down). :)

He's a likeable enough guy, but he's not the most central chip in the processor*, if you get my drift.

 

 

 

 

*I have no idea if this actually makes sense. You try writing a variation of "not the sharpest knife in the drawer" about a subject you know nothing about.
