The first XBLA N+ level pack, featuring 150 “easier” Singleplayer levels and 50 “regular difficulty” Co-op Multiplayer levels, is coming very very soon — by the end of July!
To celebrate, it’s time for another contest-like-event, or to use our newly coined term, a “cont-esque”!
We decided to run the contesque from the blog because it’s pretty simple, so here goes. This event is open to everyone, worldwide, who wishes to enter. The rules are straightforward: below is a list containing 32 level names. 24 of these are from the first N+ Level Pack PDLC, and 8 are level names which do not appear in N+ PDLC0 — level names we would never actually use for various reasons (style, cliche, etc). We’ll reveal these reasons with the winners, next week.
All you have to do is email PDLC0 [at] metanetsoftware [dot] com subject line: “Contesque 1 Submission” with the numbers of the 8 level names you think are fabrications. You can email the names of the levels as well, but please be sure to email the corresponding numbers.
The contest will be open for one week only, so get those submissions in fast! Only one per person, so make sure it’s your best guess. The top three will each receive a copy of N+ for XBLA, and the person with the most correct guesses will also receive a copy of the Official Xbox360 Magazine UK (Issue 35, July 2008) containing exclusive N+ gamerpics and themes, and an official N+ Moleskine notebook. You can see an image of the notebook and magazine here.
And now for the list, in no particular order:
01. west enderson
02. tread on my dreams
03. the hammer of not bickering
04. blue mineys
05. the grayzor mountains
06. out of the blue 3
07. your ninja is in another castle
08. ranks a rot
09. I am comin’ to kill ya
10. sudden valley
12. the hills are, uh, live
13. 88 gates
16. ninja’s first suicidal lust for gold
17. superliminal monument
18. what are we doing to pigs?
19. subliminal 2
20. little lost robot
21. level in the shape of male reproductive organs
22. ninja: impossible
23. Droids ‘B’ Us
24. the new star wars trilogy is AWESOME
26. ”going next door”
27. his name is N
28. gauss darn it
29. Level 5, Detention Block AA-23
30. the grass is always grayer on the other side
31. life support, for real this time
32. electric jellyfish
