Glitterglaze Glacier gameplay! (gameplay spoilers within)

Postby Dragonbutts » Tue Feb 28, 2017 4:21 pm



This level is looking beautiful! The water, the glittery ice, and the music are great :)
I noticed those enemies that are just eyeballs (hopping around near the beginning), they leap onto certain objects and can fight you! And the bee hives seem to allow you to stick to the slippery ice (because rolling alone doesn't let you go up the ramps).

What're your thoughts on this level?

I loved the "bioluminescent yooka" from the trailer, that cave looks absolutely gorgeous!

I had a nostalgic moment when I saw the Ice Key.

While not related to the Ice World itself, the new Switch trailer had some footage of one of the bosses:

Beautiful new footage! So excited to see it all. I don't even know where to start lol...I notice some changes from previous trailers/game play vids. One note is how the circular checkpoints fade out now instead of just disappear. I really love how smooth everything seems. Also love Glitterglaze Glacier. I'm scared I'm watching too much, but I can't help myself...this game looks awesome! Cannot wait to play! 6 weeks to go!!

I keep seeing black artifacts in the distance pop up in the distance in Glitterglaze Glacier. I'm not sure why or what's causing it, but it seems to be in every video of the level. Hope the PT guys manage to get rid of them before launch. Overall very excited, love the new footage! Looking forward to release even more.

That ice key thing did amuse. I like what they did there. I honestly thought that it would get stuck in the lock, or just simply not open, with no following explanation as a cheeky joke. Nice.

There are a couple more videos online of previews via WhatCulture Gaming and GamesRadar if you want to check them out. There were a couple of points in the GamesRadar one in particular which annoyed me. If you fancy a little game, can you guess what they were?
