The grueling task has been completed. As some of you may know, I have been playing the first Hot Air for the past few days as a means of preparing myself for Hot Air Jr. Surprisingly, the first 23 levels, holders of some of Nitrome's hardest levels, were not that bad. Some of the levels that I usually had a hard time with, such as levels 7, 10, 12, 13, 15, and 21 felt pretty easy this time around. Then I hit level 24. Although Hot Air may not be the hardest Nitrome game, I think everyone can agree that 24 is the all time hardest Nitrome level. Seriously, this level haunts me every time I play through the game, and this time is no exception. Anyway, I just completed the game (not level 25 yet) for the 3rd time. I still have to do level 25, …Read more >
I've been gone for around three months, but I am back and willing to help the Nitrome Wiki again. Currently, my Wii has been refusing to read game discs. Therefore, until I get it repaired, I will not get to replay Skyward Sword as I wanted to. So in order to combat my extreme boredom, I've decided to replay Hot Air and Hot Air 2 in order to fully prepare myself for the next installemnt in the Hot Air series.
I have completed Hot Air twice, and Hot Air 2 thrice, and it's time for me to do it again. However, as most of you know, completing Hot Air (1) is no simple task. I'm not looking forward to levels 7, 9, 12, 14, 15, 16, and above all else times 1000, the dreaded level 24. Wish me luck.Read more >
I played through Thin Ice today with the intention of the perfect run. It was going well up until level 18. I simply was not paying attention to my health meter, and it cost me. I ended up dying because of my own stupidity. However, I tried again and bear 18, 19, and 20 with little trouble. The thing is, I know I can do the perfect run for this game without much trouble at all, but I made a vow to only play each Nitrome Winter game once a year (from December 1-24), so I will have to wait until next year to try again. Anyway, I think I'm #62 or something on the high score board.
Oh well, I still have a chance to do the perfect for Frost Bite 2. That would be a dream.Read more >
I just completed it. For me, from level 20 and on, the game became very slow, and therefore tedious and hard to enjoy. However, the first 19 levels were very enjoyable, and made good use of the new tools that were introduced. Unfortunately, it didn't really have that Winter game feel that Nitrome always brings to these games. So therefore, this sits as my least favorite Winter game. Other than that, I liked the surprise Nitrome gave us in the last 10 levels.
So, what did you think of the game?Read more >
Wow! That was fun. Over the course of 58 minutes, I managed to complete Frost Bite while collecting all ice creams, killing all enemies, and getting the BONUS on all 10 levels. I did not die once, and ended up with 3/4 of my health bar. My final score was 52600, #13 on the High Score Board. 52600 is the maximum score, but you will see hacked scores in the top 11. Therefore, I really am tied for #1 on the scoreboard.
One of my favorite moments in Nitrome history.Read more >
