104th : Faint Flying Factory

Make a Good 48 Hour Mega Man Level

Probably the most exciting thing you'll see in this level.

Faint Flying Factory is the 104th place entry in Make a Good 48 Hour Mega Man Level. It is a short level with weak enemies that mostly go offscreen, up to and including its own boss.


Aside from a kamikaze Penpen at the start, practically nothing happens in this level. A short Cloud Platform ride with ineffectual Smaplars leads to a series of Kamapots over bottomless pit, which can be safely crossed by jumping when Mega Man's current Kamapot is higher than the next one. Right before the end is a surprise attack by three Penpens and a Crazy Razy, which can be neutralized with the Flame Mixer. The boss, Iron Ball, requires no effort; slide out of the way and watch as it bounces offscreen and commits suicide, bequeathing to Mega Man a freebie Energy Element.

This level doesn't have much going on. The gimmicks aren't really used creatively, and neither are the enemies. The Pen-pen is used once and immediately dies; that's edging on disqulifaction[sic] since you don't really use the asset. A single tile repeating background doesn't do much for the level. This feels like a doodle and not really a full level. It really needs a full concept or something to tie it together.

Ah, uh...what even to say? It's not like you provided me with much in the first place. Good music choice, I suppose?

Every enemy throws itself to the left before plummeting into oblivion - including the boss(!!). Every platforming "challenge" is a tedious waiting game with no embellishments or difficulty curve. And the level is over in twenty seconds. This level really could have used some custom spawners, so the enemies could provide some more constant pressure. Maybe even some ceiling spikes in the Kamapot Spawner sections. And it definitely could have used some playtesting.

...Alright? That sure happened? There really isn't a whole lot to comment on here, the level ends before it begins. I feel like half of the things didn't work correctly and at least twice I've had the boss just leave the room, die, and if you're not ready for it you can't get the energy element. I mean, I guess the boss was just trying to make the level end even faster? How weird.
