Description by Maniac Mike: Being sick & off work for the last 2 weeks has left me nothing better to do then create round sets, and I hope you have enjoyed the fruits of me having the Flu. Here are 25 more rounds, which will probably be my last for a while. I hope you like them, and thanks for playing.

Absolutely fantastic fun - loved all of it - started listing favorite rounds like Turn Off the Water and Nothing Like a Cold Shower but they were all great so I stopped. Excellent design, gameplay and use of powerups, etc. 5 ++

Wow! This is easily one of the best roundsets I’ve played! Don’t know if the PUs were random or fixed in every round but, if random, this was the luckiest I’ve ever been. :wink: There was a ball catcher in every round, I believe, which turned the round into a game of skill, not just luck. Not only did I get the minimum five rings per round, I actually made the effort to get them all. I’m going to replay this set to try to get all bricks (even indestructibles) in all rounds. I was able to go after the rings carefully, and then use the PUs to clean up the round. Lots of challenge and fun! :D

Now, before anyone starts thinking "perfection", here, there were some areas for even yet more improvement. I don’t believe there were any triggers, and some other roundsets have had very intriguing puzzles made that way. Personally, I also like themes, especially when the bricks are used to design pictures. The designs and movements here were great, but even you, Master Mike, have done some better layouts.

Very enjoyable set to play. Always seemed to be a useful powerup when needed. I liked the round names, the designs, the action & the gameplay for the majority of the rounds.

A few rounds that I think could be improved on are:
R5, R13, R20 & R22 - All "OK," but nothing spectacular
R19 - Took me 3 tries to get all the rings
R21 - Maybe there were random PU's, but I got a useless laser gun

Favorite Rounds:
R6 - WOW! Excellent gameplay
R17 - Fantastic design
R24 - Fantastic design & gameplay

Keep 'em coming! 4/5 on this one. Wish I could vote 4.5!

I'm happy :D this round set has gone over so well, and yes, I know there is still some room for improvement. I have yet to get the hang of using triggers, and my first attempt was a total disaster. I just submitted a 30 round set called "New Level Of Madness", and I'm sure (almost) everyone will enjoy it as much as this one. My 12 year old Nephew is responsible for creating one round all by himself, and he was a big influence in some of my designs and movements. Unlike my throw together experimental set, (Maniac Mike's 6th) I have done away with all that flashy stuff. I look forward to everyones comments on my new set, and thanks (in advance) for playing.

Mike

"Pull Your Hair Out" was a nice easy finish ! :lol:
"Save A Tree" was great. Though I could not identify the tree of the day. Must be a cherry tree ! :D
"Trading Places" was an Ugh brick basher. :roll:
The motion pictures of "Turn Off The Water" and "Nothing Like a Cold Shower" were fun to watch. Especially liked the shower water !

Thanks for the playtime ! 3/5

I didn't really like round 5 until I found out that I should have started in a different place. I liked the water tap and the shower rounds the best and the rest of the rounds were good. I got a few 8 way splits but never looked to see if I was just lucky or if they were intended.

I looked at this set in the editor too and see that you must have spent a while on round 12. Although you can copy/paste the plug-ins of the move between points for each brick, maybe you might have been able to get the same effect by setting the starting point as X-0 Y-0, and point 2 a marker in the center for every brick, it might look slightly different to what you achieved though but would have saved a bit of time.

Now I know the answer to my 8-way-split question although I do remember getting one in round 21.

I think you done a good job in making this set and gave a few good forced power-ups in the right places.

When are you going to get sick again because I enjoyed playing, it is not nice to hear of people in bad health but at least something good came out of it.

I adored this set :!: :!: :!: My only comment is that R20 would have been better with torpedos rather than guns because of the barricades ...

A big fat 5/5 :-)

Excellent fun. Your pu's always seem to come at the right time to get rid of those pesky bricks after all the rings have been collected.
