14th : Truffle Man

Make a Good Mega Man Level 2

Here we see a mushroom committing friendly fire.
"As far as good Mega Man levels go, this counts, and in my opinion ticks every box."
ACESpark, excerpt from judge comment.

Truffle Man is the 14th place entry in Make a Good Mega Man Level 2. It is based heavily around mushrooms, with moving bouncy mushroom platforms and reskinned mushroom enemies. It features a mid-boss fight with a heavily-armed mushroom enemy, and a boss fight with the titular Truffle Man.

Pretty neat level! The custom enemies are actually suuuper neat and adorable, and they're used and combined in interesting ways. I really like the enemy that shoots the wave of explosions, it's used in some pretty neat rooms and it's interesting to work around. I'm not sure if I like how the Noble Nickels were hidden, though - 2 out of 3 are behind breakable walls that took me a couple playthroughs to even realize they were there. Both the miniboss and boss were impressive and a lot of fun to fight, and the level's just fun in general. I don't like the final stretch before the boss, though, with the moving mushroom platform - it's a HUGE pain to try and kill the mushroom Mets while trying to stay caught up with the platform. I feel like better enemy choice would have made the section more fluid and fun. I still really like most of the level, though, it's just super fun and creative.

That level really felt like something out of a fangame. The custom enemies were great, and the bouncing mushroom gimmick was executed very well! The small bouncing mushrooms were placed in ways that were fun without being too hard for the level. The big ones went fast enough to keep you on your toes, but slow enough that you could catch up to it if you fell behind. The stage was a LITTLE bit too short, though. Truffle Man himself looks really cool, and the fight is fun, but that laser attack takes up a bit too much space. Overall though, fantastic level!Awesome job!

Pretty nice level! I like the mushroom-themed enemies and how they behave, though I'm kinda sad the level forgot about two of its enemies after the first room :c. Aside from that it's pretty consistent and has a nice flow to it. I like the midboss, but I have some problems with Truffle Man himself. Aside from his buster dealing a lot of damage and often chasing me down after I thought I had already dodged it (since every bullet homes individually, rather than it being a streak of 3 in the same direction), he limits off the arena, often causing the player to be right next to him (which is not where you wanna be when a robot mushroom is tossing peas at you). I think he could've been more interesting if he utilised the pollen bombs from some of the enemies in the level instead of cutting off parts of the arena. The level itself is mostly fine, though I'm not a fan of the last section before the boss. The truffle mets on those platforms have to be taken out quickly or else the player will miss their ride. Placing a non-shielded enemy on the ride would've made getting back on the platform more reliable to accomplish. Overall this stage doesn't do much, but it has a nice theme and is fun to play.

It's a pretty good level. The stage layout is actually very solid, however there are some issues, such as with certain enemies being too difficult to avoid, or Noble Nickels that are too hard to find. I liked the mushroom enemies too. Other than that, there's not much else that's considerably interesting in this stage, but it's still one I enjoy.

So here comes this level, feeling like it is straight out of one of the official games, more or less. Good stuff. The minor negatives to the stage? I think the colour palette is a bit drab and boring, the Spring Mushrooms and Enemy Mushrooms should've at least been different colours to help lessen confusion between what is an enemy and a gimmick, and I felt like it was very bizarre that the Mid-Boss has a greater range of attacks than the Robot Master. The weirdest bit of the stage? The single, solitary Katonbyon from Mega Man 6 that shows up. Randomly. And isn't used again. I do not get it.

Bare in mind, this is all minor, very nitpicky stuff. I guess the only real issue here - is it is not the most creative stage out there. This stage gets enemy and gimmick conveyance spot on, the themeing is completely consistent and well joined, strange dragonflies aside, and finally - it makes full use of every gimmick to its full effect. Maybe not every enemy, but certainly the gimmicks.

I have a slight issue with the master - the fact that lasers are suddenly introduced to the stage is a bit off-putting and confusing, but this is yet again, a nitpick. He seems pretty difficult, but feels pretty fair once you get used to him.

As far as good Mega Man levels go, this counts, and in my opinion ticks every box. Great work.
