Description Please please please RCE! I really feel this is one of my best. I know, I have said that before. =P

This map was featured on 2009-02-05

Very often when a concept map is submitted, you play it and think, “Okay, the concept is cool, but it could’ve been done a lot better.” Then, usually, someone does do it better, and it progresses from there. Riobe has skipped all those stages with Second Time Around. You actually need to avoid the doors to get all the gold that you can, which creates some really unorthodox and enjoyable gameplay.
And if you’re faint at heart? Well, there’s the door.

never seen a map like this before. I quite enjoyed it too

Demo Data

hey riobe

can I use this in a map? will cred if you want.


I'm the one who just moved this up to 'rated 5 by 25 people' from 'rated 4 by 24 people'. Thank you for your atttention.
But if you really did come up with the concept, 5/5.

That is the best idea ever. Awesome concept. Needs refining, but awesome concept.

First try AGD.

The concept still can be improved, like for example I would have put more of the switches in the ninja's way.

I feel like if anyone's missing the point here, it's you, Kiaora (I'm not looking for a fight either, so please don't take this offensively; I'm just trying to make a point.) Just because someone pointed out this map to maxson doesn't necessarily mean that everyone has seen it - it might just mean that someone found a gem no reviewer has noticed and made a recommendation but doesn't necessarily want the commitment of the position of reviewer himself. Secondly, and less relatedly, this is a fantastic review. There isn't any flowery or superfluous garbage - it's just well written and direct. As for the map itself, I didn't enjoy it much, but it is a neat concept.
This is the first map I've featured off a recommendation. It's not like I'm on here all the time; I may miss a really good map because I wasn't around.
Why have the job of pointing out great maps to the mostly ignorant populace, when you need the maps to be pointed out to you first?

(By ignorant, I mean ignorant with regards to older/overlooked maps; I'm not looking for a fight.)
You just recommended it. I looked at this map, and I thought it was indeed feature-worthy. This is why I'm open to recommendations; if I wasn't, I never would've seen this map.
i told him to :)

Demo Data
I was going to do it, but I never got around to it.


fun map. 4.5

also, cool concept

Alternative Route.

Hmm, a speed AGD. And a different route, I think this may need some refining, Riobe.
Demo Data
It had some potential.

Wish I like it more then I do.


Called it! Major bogus! I beat it! Nope, I did!
Demo Data

Demo Data

Demo Data
Thats amazing! :) OMG! OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 5 and faved!

A pointless speedrun which is fastest demo possible:(for me...98 frames...)
Demo Data


Tears of joy.


How unexpected. Thanks!

Nice review

Made the map seem better than it was. Although the gameplay was nice, I'm not sure whether having to complete a map twice is a clever concept or an unnecessary hinderance. Oh, and here's a pointless speedrun.
Demo Data

This is cool

I love how you can choose when to bail out of the highscoring ^_^ 5aved

i totally agree

this is the best level ive ever seen in ages!!!!! 9999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999/5
And I meant the *first and last clusters

Ooh, krusch

Thanks. ^_^

Very nice map.

But I sorta broke it. This demo scores 8 seconds higher in userlevels and comes in at just over half the frames of yours. The idea being that if you can get more than half the gold on one time around (which you do because you get the last two clusters), your frames will be roughly half of what it would take to go around twice, and thus your score will be higher.

So, it's a good concept, but there needs to be a higher gold reward for it to work properly. That said, I had loads of fun playing it, and it'll stick in my userlevels for a while.

as someone said, sendy used this, youve done a damn fine job of it. have some five, i love it.

Great map.

The exit system looks a lot like sendy's mined games. And that's a good thing ^^. 5aved. Great.
tell me every reason why these maps should not be featured:

I mean, is origami_alligator will feature "#4", by ultCult, one of these should definitely be featured.

And of course, this is a marvelous map. 5/5

P.S. Todays my birthday *hint*


Would all reviewers please read this [] BEFORE posting any more reviews, thanks.


On a side note, the thumb looks much smoother than I had expected.
