- 5 Environmentally based levels
- City, Jungle, Underwater, Dessert, and Underground
- Pages of a book are collected throughout
- There is a charge station (Sharpener for Pencil power up) at the beginning of every level.
So with this brainstorm I wanted to be able to develop concepts based around these elements.
In terms of this design, I don’t think it is dense enough to resemble a forest. The top section of the level could do with more complexity aside from doing a big Tarzan swing to finish. I also want to put more hidden paths. But that can only be done with a revision to the overall layout to the level first.
My concept is loosely taken from how the Amazon Rainforest is structured into 4 tiers and the way that most Sonic the Hedgehog games are designed this way. In particular Mystic Cave.(Sonic the Hedgehog: 2, SEGA Genesis, 1992).
