ya, the platform stuff seems to be a frustration point for many.
I swear I didn't put anything in to deliberately be a dick.
I actually really like platform/jumping games and maps, and I totally love fighting on high, dangerous structures or rocks, where the penalty for a mistake is a 30 story fall. I never finished Tannim's Tower of Pain, but I was reasonably proud of how far I managed to get.
Looking at the platform maps now, I feel like I could have been more attentive to ramping up the difficulty, rather than just dropping the player into a stunningly hard map right at the start. I think I may go back into the first one and make an easier alternative route. I'll see if the Old PC Mac can add any more structure without killing my frame rate. Maybe I'll post a couple of alternatives as a mini map pack...
EDIT: ...and ask for some feedback. Plans are a-forming in my mind. Let's see if I an just remember how to use the map editor.
