Susie Derkins is Calvin's foil in the comic strip Calvin and Hobbes. To say that they have a love-hate relationship is putting it mildly. Of course, Hobbes is more than happy to return her affections.

My Review

While there are many steep mountains to be had in this seed, I was shocked to find that moving around between them was not a problem. They're all fairly easy to scale -- even the tallest one that takes you all the way up to Y=120. Given how many shadowy places there are, I wouldn't recommend this for beginners. However, plenty of challenges for even the most advanced players make this seed well worth checking out.

Can't Miss

The seed Gargamel is known for a massive above-ground cavern full of bad guys. This level contains a similar Gargamel-style cavern. It's not as big, but still formidable.


It's basically one large hunk of land with a small smattering of water and islands to the extreme east side of the map.

There are actually a lot of things to see and do on this level. I probably have another three photos that just missed the cut.

First up, the cave (topmost photo) here is a Gargamel-style mega cave full of bad guys and death. I assure you getting through here on any level other than "no bad guys" is gonna be tough. The other image at top is a large, shadowy overhang located in another part of the seed. I like that the waterfall pours out onto the ice here -- unrealistic, but neat.

Finally, the three photos at right are c) a double land bridge setup, d) a misty mountain in early morning, and e) a relatively steep valley amidst some tall mountains (mountain at far right is tallest).
