That's alright. Maybe the whole episode will be uploaded to Youtube.

So yeah as pointed out the YouTube playlist is a collection of highlights (42 minutes isn't a bad amount of time though) of the episode.

Overall I liked what I saw, it's basically Takeshi's Castle Thailand with a smaller budget

Re: Takeshi's Castle Indonesia: Episode 1 (21st March)


It seems like they uploaded the whole episode up until Wipe Out, then they couldn't be bothered anymore and just uploaded a couple of minutes of each game.

Hopefully someone else will upload it all somewhere. We'll have to get searching.

It really is a mix of the original and TCT. They've copied the Thai graphics - down to the map, scroll animations before the games and ever the illustrated intro with the cast in.

Every game worked as it should emoticon
Honeycomb Maze is slow, but that's because they've gone for this version where everyone is waiting for directions. Not sure why they went for that, but maybe they'll change it.

Skipping Stones looks much better with extra water in the pond covering the stones up more. And everyone's properly going for it! No slow stepping like in Thailand.
The guy who for some reason leapt onto the first stone with two feet, but missed it emoticon

It still baffles me why no one can make Mushroom Trip work like the original, but there were still some good falls.

I don't like they music they've used. It sounds like a circus. Definitely not the right atmosphere. It makes it feel more like the Brazilian version, which is a bit naff.

Re: Takeshi's Castle Indonesia: Episode 1 (21st March)


Well hopefully this review doesn't sound too tough. I'll get the negatives out of the way and then get into the highpoints.

Not uploading it to Youtube in full (especially after telling me they would) was really disappointing. I mean lots of people interested are from other countries and timezones so it'd be nice to let them enjoy it in full. Yeah it seems like they got lazy, but howcome they couldn't have uploaded it all in one piece? With it already edited, that would take far fewer clicks. It's also a bit hard to concentrate on it at all when you're constantly checking to see when you have to switch emoticon Fix this and the main problem would be solved.

The music is really bad. I mean, the original soundtrack: Yes. Ikwanman's: Sure. TCIndonesia's: NOOOOO. It didn't fit at all and was just a hot mess.

The castle is definitely the worst bit of design. It does seem really small and like nothing, I'll give you that Dan.

Most of the games were a huge plus-point. I mean really, you have Skipping Stones, Skittles, Wipe Out, Slippery Wall working perfectly. It may not be the same but I also like their Mushroom Trip's style and the Animal-like guard that hosts it! Skipping Stones was fast and fun. Some of the stones I'd say could be placed more randomly than three per row but that's being picky now! Slippery Wall is good for what it is emoticon I might suggest adding a small ledge at the bottom of the other side of the wall for contestants to attempt to land on and miss the mud. Most would fail well like in the original emoticon From the little I saw of Wipe Out, it looked really good and like a replica. Wish I could have seen more... The Skittles pins seemed thicker than the ones in Thailand with is good. I still think they could be made a bit heavier to knock each other over more, especially pins near the back but still worked well. And I'm not quite sure if that pin in #1 position was eliminated or not emoticon

Honeycomb Maze just wasn't great (even moreso when you only get to see one person attempt it!). I don't know why they chose this version of the game but it went way too slowly and the guards didn't seem vicious enough yet. If I went I could have had a big turn in speed when I saw one and sprinted out of it safely every time emoticon Like that it connects to land though.

Back to the good, I really liked the cast! Suprisingly I saw the least of the General, but he seemed good. I really like our Fern-replacement, she seems to have studied her part very well emoticon The Battlefield Reporter guy letting someone around the wall in Slippery Wall and then getting sprayed was a nice touch. I liked the pirate guy and the people in the castle were good enough, but would like to see sketches.

I found the speech translation bubbles in Mushroom Trip amusing and when it was in English the first time emoticon

I'm undecided on the Show Down. Could be worse, but it seemed pretty slow and also like the contestants could win it about half the time. We'll see though! Same with Final Fall, however the rock popping up and chasing them was really creative emoticon

Now we only have Bridge Ball, Extinction and Blueberry Hill left to see. As much as I hope to see more games being produced, I have a bad feeling that they are not adding. We certainly need an alternate starting game for now, rather than Slippery Wall every week.

So only a couple real problems, there are some other small errors such as "Steping Stones", but those are easily fixable and won't drag my opinion on the show down really. I would give this a 6/10. Not too bad a start, but could use some improvement!

I hope so! It would definitely be better than the carnival music emoticon

There's no point bothering with Challenge anymore as they don't take suggestions or seem to want to spend any money on new things.

I t seems like no one else is going to be uploading the episodes emoticon
