You're absolutely right, no one's entitled to demand anything. Having said that, yes, we justifiedly expect Easter bunnies from Easter levels and Christmas trees from Christmas levels. I think anybody can understand...

They had a lot of time to make an Easter custom, even an year. And sorry, I won't thank to organizers of Aspidetr, because I don't have for what...

You don't need to apologize, because you don't have to be grateful if the content provided doesn't match your requirements. Just don't despise of its value. Meanwhile I will just snatch the resources because I find them useful :)

Does that mean we'll get some Easter levels from you next year? :wink:

So, it's Monday 2pm for me and usually the next day is available at 1pm my time but it's still not..... :dunno:

I'm currently trying to beat that game. I don't know what to think, it's really ambitious where it should be simple, and vice versa. For instance I would throw out half of the dialogue but so far I only solved one puzzle without the Valar intervention... It's like if you were required to learn Chinese in order to play BtB Asia, but the background of these riddles is brilliant. I'm finishing the Vault, closing to the end...

While we are on the subject of Easter levels, I wonder if Raidermatty and Ranpyon will be blessing us with their contributions this year... :thinking:

Ranpyon said two years ago she was going to do an Easter level next year.....still waiting! :wink:

Right, it's raining today for the first time in a while so the day will be dark enough to see the screen to play so going to make a start on this super-sized Easter level (we're in Summer heading into Autumn). :2thumbsup:

Just started this, I'm sure it's a great game but it's not an Easter level and I feel I've been duped that it's been added to the Easter advent calendar when it's not in the theme at all.
I want Easter levels at Easter time, Xmas levels at Xmas time etc. I've noticed that some non-holiday themed levels have been added to the advent calendars lately and that's disappointing as I look forward to the holiday themed levels.

^ one might also consider these criticisms as a way to disenfranchise those builders who have been willing to commit their time and efforts to bring you any Advent calendar games at all. I'm stunned by such complaints. Do you have any idea how hard it is to come up with new "theme" adventures year after year? Maybe some slack could be shown to the builder who slips in a regular game now and then.

I don't think it's too much to ask to expect an Easter themed level in an Easter themed advent calendar at Easter time.

It's not too much to expect Easter levels for Easter, I also did that. But if something else is provided instead, it doesn't have to mean the author wanted to trick you. I wouldn't assume that. I'm glad the author has used the Easter opportunity to release a project which, possibly, wouldn't be released at all otherwise.

If I feel tricked it's just because of copied locations, nothing more :D :D :D
