I just logged back in to Diablo 3 for the first time in about a week; the Germany VS Italy game was so pants that I thought I’d log in and see how many times I could be killed by a ‘molten’ boss before I gave up!
It took me a bit to get into a game for some reason, perhaps everyone else is watching the football? Anyway, I eventually found a full game with three other level 52 players, clicked a team mates banner and was immediately transported to……..WHIMSYSHIRE – LAND OF THE KILLER UNICORNS!
Whimsyshire is Diablo 3’s secret cow level, the developers must have been on LSD AND magic mushrooms when they put it together.
The secret level is absolutely hilarious and the level design reminds me of Toe Jam and Earl because it is so incredibly bright, vibrant and cartoony. There are smiley faced clouds, rainbows and lush looking presents scattered around the place (another reason it reminds me of TJ&E), all of which lull you into a false sense of security!
Whimsyshire is fucking evil!
Chubby unicorns speed towards you at the same sort of pace that the Cow King used to on D2 Hell setting with ‘Super Fast’ abilities. One hit, dead. My Little Pony sucks ass!
The unicorns are absolutely hardcore but they are not the only inhabitants of the level. They are also joined by big cuddle teddy bears (Care Bears anyone?) and twinkleroot flowers, both of which chase you around the map whilst you do your best to ‘hit and run’ them.
My character did bugger all damage to anything on the level and it made me want to go onto the marketplace and buy up a legendary wand to nuke the little bastards with!
Kudos to the developers though, what a fantastic level to hide in the game!
Whimsyshire, I shall return!
