to start: everything is wrong with nightmare mode. It’s totally not what we expected and what scopely hyped. Nightmare mode, a mode you can’t even select, and you dont even see.
Nightmare mode is not hard at all, it’s the same stuff without items. Who needs items anyways? I didn’t use them since 1989. Nightmare mode should be there to be hard and give a challenge to players who have been at it for the past 3 years.
Making the maps f-ing long doesnt make them hard, just annoying. If you can pass 6 maps, im sure you’ll be able to pass 600 maps too. The length just bores us.
Mode should be something ascesable in a second screen, maybe after beating the initial map. Benefit: more maps, more replay value, and it doesnt hurt weaker players as its an option, not an obligation. Now weaker players can maybe not get to the necklace rewards.
Everyone and their mothers have been complaining here that the game lacks new world maps. I dont know if it is intended to really release more of them, but as for now i think it was intended. Why not make the wait a little bit easier for us with a simple yet good addition: nightmare mode! Yes, the nightmare mode we can see in 999/1000 other games and has proven to work well, you take your existing levels, so all the darn stages 1-23, and you make then harder to beat in a nightmare mode. Put some rewards on them again, everyone is happy. You unlock nightmare mode the same way as unlocking the auto finish with the tokens: beat all stages with 3 stars.
It’s not so hard scopely, to make the game better. Listen to players feedback and spy on what works well in other games. Ofcourse releasing totally new world maps is better, but until then, people at least got something to do if you add a real nightmare mode. Its easier than releasing roadmaps, you dont have to write a story for them…
