[The Electric Shocktopus-"Hop the fence, down the wall"-eNqr1qEIGBvp6IyaMGoCPU0wNgMRJoRNMaMAUqS7ulqpREknOhaIqpXSQKxaAKRxm+8=]

My first level! :D

Constructive criticism welcome.
tips, trivia, and comments
SPOILER_SHOW
When going over a wave of rockets, remember where you left the screen so you don't fall into a dangerous situation.

So far as I know, hovering isn't a viable strategy. I could be wrong, though, so feel free to try.

It's possible to finish without using electricity, but it's very, very difficult.

When descending the wall of guns, be careful not to latch onto the shooty sides. It's very easy and very fatal.
Good luck!

Code: Select all

This level is all about precision, speed, and creative thinking. It has been tested and proven possible; however, I am hoping to set a new FBF record for most deaths on a level before a success. 180 is a pretty high goal...and honestly, I'm not entirely certain that this level is that hard. But one can hope, right? :)
It took me like 30 whole seconds to find where I was spawning in.

Also, how do I find my death count? Is there like a button?

Haha, so happy to revisit that level just now, wow.

If you press '=' (the equals button) it'll toggle to the number-of-deaths count.

Hey, this isn't that hard at all. I just wanted to hold this spot before the Megathread gets too long.

I worked on this level for 24 hours (discontinuous, of course). After finishing it, beating it with three stars took me two hours of continuous play...so have fun.
Dear. Christ. No. What even. The first challenge looks simple enough, but Shocktopus slips about just enough to make it hell. The next hurdle looks like it requires pinpoint timing of a charge, and then some stuff that I can't even recognize. Help me.
