Just wondering what your opinions are on the original 8 dreams and all. xD I recently (about 10 minutes ago) got a rank A on everything, so YAY!

Anyway, if you guys want to talk about different worlds, or find hidden stuff, well, this is it.


Personally, my favorite, AND the one Im best at is Soft Museum. xD I don't know about you guys, but to me, thats the easiest level for me. Plus, I seem to know all the hidden goodies in there. o3o Secret orbs and such!

My worst one is definatly Stick Canyon. O_O Anyone have any tips about that 4th mare? I always crash and BURN, but I managed a many-years-worked-on A so.. >> But really, you know that long rail you go on, it shoots up up and BAM! Another one. I always seem to run out of the halfway through the second rail, crash, and end up with a C or less on that mare. Tips would be nice. xD

My favorites are Spring Valley (it's classic NiGHTS goodness) and Soft Museum (it's awesome and it has Jackle as a boss ^^)
As for the fourth mare of Stick Canyon, I say just run like a madman/woman. Don't worry too much about your score, and DO worry about avoiding getting hit and going REALLY fast. Basically, as long as you get through the mare, you're going to get an A-C depending on how much junk you picked up on the way.

Anyway, I found it odd that in Frozen Bell, it only snows whenever you have the "No Stars" cheat on. (I think...I may just not be paying attention) What's up with that?

Hum, I think my favorite is Twin Seeds. I like the night time sceane and how festive and pretty everything looks with the ballons. And I find it's actually the easiest out of the levels for me. I dunno, perhaps its because everything gets sucked towards the kids XD
My Least FAvorite is Stick Canyon >>; I keep screwing up and having to play as Elliot about halfway through the second rail.

Stick Canyon is troubling, but if you can make A's in all the other Mares, it isn't as horrible. The best I could make for quite a while was a C.. One day I woke up and decided I would try and do the best I could and finally made an A on the level.

I like 'em all, mostly because they're different and challenging and the more you play them, the more you find you like about the levels. I was dreadful of Mystic Forest, but then finally got the hang of the place and just fell in love with it. Same with Twin Seeds, mostly because I just loooove the music. Seems difficult once you get focused on a level to move from that one to the next, unless you play it over and over.

I think for me Soft Museum is the best, it seems to have something extra to the other ones and I really love the music. Spring Valley and Splash Garden are good for racking up high scores though. In fact, thinking about it, I love every level of the game. I'm normally sat on the level select trying to decide which one I'd most like to play.

Stick Canyon is not too much of a problem I don't think. Do well on the first three mares and then go as fast as you can on the fourth. If I remember rightly you can get 2 very fast laps in and that should ensure an easy A-Grade.

I really can't wait to see what variety the new game has.

In the beginning I really hated Mystic Forest because of the semi-labyrinth part. I kept getting lost and turning back to Claris before I could find the Ideya XD Nowadays my least favourite is the 4th mare of Stick Canyon. Not so much because of the "turning back to Elliot"-part as that tower being annoying. I always get the timing wrong and end up getting hit by the boulders.

Favourite levels? Lesse, Splash Garden (mermaid!NiGHTS), Soft Museum (bouncybouncy...) and Twin Seeds (the kids gets to fly + the music).

I'm training to be a pro wrestler and am a huge fan. I like my music too, guitar bands of all shapes and sizes. As long as it's a good tune you can sing to I'm happy.
The level I remember most fondly is Soft Museum thanks to the madness of the soft rubbery bits and the massive amount of chips to collect throughout.

I love them all. Really. They're so great *_*

I suppooooose my favourite is... Splash Garden. I love the water that floats around and it feels much fresher and a bit freer than the other dreams. I adore Soft Museum as well though...

My least favourite is probably Spring Valley- not that I actually dislike it but compared to the others it always comes off as kinda... bland? Ehh. Also, it takes me FOREVER on that Mystic Forest part that's overhead- sooo annoyinnng ;_;

I've never tried it, but I saw this on this forum a few days ago- On SC mare 4 you deliberately run out of time at the base of the tower, take a lift up and do it as the kid- it'll attract ALL the items and get you a better mark apparantly!

Twin Seeds is my all time favorite level in NiD. Free flight (as always, but I feel even more free playing this level), no evil Kirkles to drag you down or random not important Shleep to bug you XD All you gotta do is zip through the level, collect all the Ideya and rescue NiGHTS all before the time hits 0. Its the only level I've been able to get an A rank in, and the music is beautiful, almost hypnotic to me but in a good way :lol:

Stick. Canyon. Sucks. I can not tell you how many times I've had to beat that thing and narrowly escape beating the entire level with a C rank. The only perk about it is the extra bonus points when you get all magnified and everything and a bag of chips sticks to you. That's funny to watch actually. And the mesh screen roller coaster of mucho doom lol.

Though I must say, they're all pretty awesome and have their own beauty.

My least favorite is Stick Canyon. >.< I never do good on that level. lol I almost always end up turning back into Elliot at the end.

I hated Stick Canyon until I figured out how to get through the stage without losing NiGHTS. Now it's just another stage to me. As far as design, actually, I kind of like it. But it'd be hard for me to pick a favorite, since I like all of them so much.

I never thought of Twin Seeds as being one of the dream worlds, because even if it is, it imitates the "real" city of Twin Seeds. But that one's a fun stage, too.

I use to dislike Mystical Forest for some reason. I don't know why. Now, it's one of my favorite levels :lol:!

Anyway, my favorite level's gotta be either Splash Garden, or Soft Museum. It's kinda hard to choose for me, I like 'em all :D! I horribly stink at the last mare in Stick Canyon. NiGHTS always turns into Elliot for me while I'm on the rail that leads to the Ideya Palace >___<!

*sighs* All of the dream levels are pretty, so I can't pick one based on that. As far as difficulty, my favorite dream would have to be Spring Valley... it was one of the first levels that I was able to beat while staying as NiGHTS!

I can't really say that I hate them, but I despise playing Mystic Forest and Soft Museum. Mystic Forest has that terrible maze at the end and I always wind up with a headache just from trying to control NiGHTS in the museum.

Jackle: Whaddya mean Soft Museum gives you a headache?!?!
Me: *gulp* I didn't say anything...

I've always liked to play Twin Seeds best. This is partly because it took me, like, a week to *finally* get used to the controls enough to get all C's and so tasted so much sweeter when I first played it. But mostly, it's because there are no real hazards to beat except the clock, and best of all -- no stinking AlarmEgg!

As for Stick Canyon Mare 4, I'd have to just recommend that either you A) just spend all of your time picking up as much stuff, especially blue/gold chips, and try to time it so that you hit the second rail just before your time runs out (the reason for this is that the kids attract items, thus making you a point magnet for the duration of the second rail) and then picking up as much of the dropped stuff again when you land, or B) try to avoid the rails altogether. I can't remember if this is possible in Mare 4, but I know you can just not use the other one if you dodge around it just right.

What I did in Stick Canyon 4 was practice it to see how much time I need to get through the whole thing, and instead of obsessing over grabbing items, just figure out a way to get as many as possible within that time. It's definitely possible...

Spring Valley is my favourite. Visuals, and the level design, is perfect.

With Stick Canyon, you have to go through the rollarcoaster as far as I know, and you need atleast 60 seconds when you reach the top of the tower, else your in trouble. But if you can do your best with the first 3 mares, then getting a C or less on mare 4 doesnt necessaryly mean your not get an A anyway.

It is the most difficult dream to get used to, but then it is the penultimate level, with Reala as the boss, so it should be ;)

I'd have to go Soft Museum as well (and the music is something I can listen to anyday). Although in terms of visuals, I do like Stick Canyon.

I still suck horribly at it though ;)

Hmmm, my favorite levels happen to be Twin Seeds because after you beat Wizeman you get this super cutscene (which gets even better once you play both Claris and Elliot), Soft Museum (bouncing through, on and into everything is fun, though Jackle is a bit of a pain to beat) and Splash Garden (I mean who doesn't like it when NiGHTS turns into a mer-Nightmaren, it's so cool). My least favorite is definately Stick Canyon (I keep ending up turning into Elliot part of the way through because it's such a long course or I bump into too many of the shocking Nightmaren creatures along the way).

Spring Valley is easily my favorite, so much so that I've probably memorized the map. Stick Canyon is of course hated, but I get my highest score on that by turning back into Elliot on purpose right after the fourth mare starts. I (sadly) lose NiGHTS, grab as many blue chips as possible, and ride the elevator on the tower (NiGHTS can't reach it), then I just finish the level by running like hell back to NiGHTS and dodging the stupid clock. I don't really play Stick Canyon that often though...

For those of you having trouble with SC4, another tip: All the blue chips you need can be picked up while going up the tower. At the beginning of the mare, just make a beeline for the tower and ignore everything else.

Myself, favorite dream is Spring Valley, least is Mystic Forest.

Thanks! I'm glad to have stumbled on it. I think when I first started playing Spring Valley was my favorite, but over time I grew quite attached to the Soft Museum. Twin Seeds is pretty cool too.

True. Spring Valley stuck on me because I had only the sampler to play with for a couple months before I got the full version, and the only two levels on there were Spring Valley and Frozen Bell. So I guess it grew on me.

Oooh, tough question! I like almost every level design, except for Stick Canyon (frustrates me every time!) and Frozen Bell (Canucks are sick of winter as it is, LOL). Out of all the music though, I have to choose Twin Seeds. I feel so free and victorious hearing that! :3
