―Mick Galbani, judge comment

Sunset Siege is the 14th place entry in Make a Good Mega Man Level (and the 15th place entry in Make a Good Mega Man Level Remastered).

Strategy[edit]

This stage can be divided into five parts: a ground section, a rooftop section, an indoor section before the barriers, the barrier section, and everything past that. This level is pretty simple, aside from one disguised room exit.

I liked the setting and the music of the level, and some of the things presented were nice (like the usage of all the barriers), but the whole level just felt kinda....there. Like it kinda lacked an identity? It felt like just some rooms with enemies and then the end goal. Also you can get shunted in a wall via a screen transition at one point :V

Rather sparse, wasn't it? The overall idea was nice, but it would have been better served by having some more varied terrain, and maybe some mobile enemies to give it that action-y vibe that it lacks.

I can't see what's so sunset or siege about this level. It's kind of a nothing level.

This was definitely a level, no doubt about that. I actually quite liked the music choice here, and you did a fairly decent job of using the resources that you were given. Some folks may be annoyed by the barrier abuse, but I actually found it rather fitting, considering its supposed to be a siege.

This level doesn't exactly seem to know what it wants to be - only in the interior section does it get some sort of coherent theme, and even then it's somewhat questionable as to what you're setting out to achieve. Every screen it seems like something new is being thrown at me. The screen transitions seem a bit broke, too - because the upper path on the junction simply doesn't join up right, I cannot take it without death, so I'm only rating based on the bottom path - which has forced usage of every weapon - ideally, I think weapons should only have forced usage for secret or alternate paths, and it should only be 1 or 2 weapons.



Trivia[edit]

  • In Make a Good Mega Man Level, an miscalculation with MrKyurem's score resulted in it earning a higher place than it was supposed to. This error is fixed in Make a Good Mega Man Level Remastered, where MrKyurem's score is now given as 37 (for a total score of 37.8) and the stage has swapped places with Midnight Snow.
