10 emitters trying to kill you, 6 emitters trying to save you. You've never been so close to death as today. But hey, it's your job, so you can handle that. Right? Try to use all available space as efficient as possible; this will certainly help you finishing faster.

Title:
Nice Job 15: The Gravedigger
Difficulty:
Hard
Creeper type:
Land only
Remarks:
10 emitters trying to kill you, 6 emitters trying to save you. You've never been so close to death as today. But hey, it's your job, so you can handle that. Right? Try to use all available space as efficient as possible; this will certainly help you finishing faster.
Description:
Finally, the last grave for today....

Your new job as a gravedigger is pretty tough as it involves a lot of hard work. You've just let the coffin down when you realize how little space you must have in such a small case.

At that moment a powerful gust pushes you forward. You fall down into the grave onto the coffin. When you look up you see nothing, but you hear a frightening dark voice saying:

"HAHAHA! You buried me alive, now you will experience the same thing! Die!"

Hmmm, better start digging again....

I had a long detailed reply for how i beat the level typed up, and then i realized i better not give that away just yet.  It took me two tries just because the first try was a terrible start.  And it takes like 3-4 blasters to really make sure you are safe on the coffin, i'll say that much.

I make a lot of dumb mistakes, i tried to advance up the steps poorly, i tried to use some battery powered blasters, I rushed the moat for the mortar tech, lot of good that did....and the last tech i grabbed was the speed tech because I'm an idiot and started at the top of the map for my climb out of the grave.  and like after i finished capping off the top half i went "oh..." and kicked myself for not starting at the bottom where i could have gotten the speed tech sooner.

My bad moves aside this was a pretty fun map, a bit of a scary start up (and a bit scary trying to get out of the grave) but once you are secure on the coffin you just gotta work at getting out, i can do this faster now that i know what NOT to do.

Nah, let them struggle a bit first. ;)

Yeah, once you know what to build you always have an advantage. As map maker I played a couple of times more which definitely makes it easier. I might say something about that later.

Not very quick for me, and my useless computer isn't great with numerous blasters so it felt a lot longer than my 40 minutes.

Used 3 blasters at the start to be safe, then added a fourth as I built my reactors.  Got mortar, then cleared a path to the outside at the bottom.  Then speed, and this is probably where I lost a lot of time - only fought round the grave on a single front, doing two fronts would have been much faster.

Well done Spiff! :) You didn't exactly pick the easiest of my maps to beat.

And I see your time isn't bad either, especially considering that you went all around on each level if I understood your PM correctly. That could indeed cause some lag in the end....
