So, anyone played my level?

Also, so far I've only played raekuul, TaviTurnip and a guy's levels. The first one is definitely something and the second has a trippy palette and cool concept, but as she said is unfinished, but still playable. As for a guy's level, well, I never thought I would get mooned by a level, if you know what I mean. ;)

Zyglrox Odyssey's level took me 2 savestates this time around. One right before the flying platform, and one right before the shell kicker part. EDIT: Oh wow I almost did it! I just failed the final shell jump to the key twice. Argh!
EDIT: And I just beat it! Actually some things that looked super precise aren't now that I have some practice. pretty good level once you get the hang of it :)

Sasquatch: I'm really, really hard to impress, so please don't take my words too harshly. The level is bland and has nothing special to offer. It's just a level that exists.

How did you get his level to work? I never got Zyglrox's level to get patched. Anyway, What about my level?

Eh, it's an old level I had lying around, and I submitted it just to have something in the contest. I spent about two hours drawing the graphics, added music, and that's it. Maybe I should finish the Mario gfx (by removing his hat and editing the two frames I missed) and submit them as Mario Beach GFX to SMW Central. I'm sure someone will be interested in them.

Oh! This is one I have played! I don't have too much to say, though, especially in specifics.

That’s a super nice, charmful level! It’s got a good theme, an onslaught of good custom assets, more-challenging-than-average, continuous level design, and a simple secret exit. I don’t know what else I could ask of from this. Also, I’m a big fan of that overworld tune.
call me reecer6, not reecer7, please! gotta maintain that same internet brand.
I do a lot more things at my tumblr here than I do here! So, check it out, if you think I'm cool!

I also wonder what others thought of my level.
And I would review what other peeps made but I kinda want it to be like MaGLX2 where I get to see whatever surprises raocow shows in the ascending ranks, so this is quite an impasse...

I wonder if people will do their own "reviews" of the levels like in MAGLX2 (And I'm not saying that like it's a bad thing, it's really cool actually!)

I was kidding :P Somehow, I liked your level more than idol's. (in this contest. Maybe not in the other contest.)

I recovered the files from my old external hard drive and I got a new one so I will try to play some of the entries later if that is okay. There are a lot though so I don't know if I'll be able to do all of them.

The music choice gives the level an empty, tired feeling, almost as if you were arriving to the convention hours after the cats left. Even for a cat level, the lack of variety made it boring. I know SMW has sprite limitations, but you could have put a few more cat variations in there. The giant cat sprite was surprising, but its placement was strange. It should have been placed somewhere that had meaning instead of randomly in the second segment. There are just so many things your level could have been that it was not, which is a shame.

Hmm. Thanks.

I remember I was mostly going for contrast with the music choice. Still interested to see how it goes. I also think most of the decisions were pretty random too.

do you know how close they are to being done judging? if raocow put a halt on star road after this bowser fight to focus on magl that would be perfect

ath the very least can they just give you the bottom 10 placs so raocow can start and they can finish whil he plays lol

I think I'm burnt out on ASM for now. I had multiple ideas for this contest that I could use for that one, but they were mostly just ways to utilize HDMA, nothing fancy with custom sprites or blocks or anything. I really like HDMA.

I had some more effects planned for the level I did make, but they didn't really work as intended, and I had a lot of debugging in other areas to really worry about that. I did learn a few tricks I could use in the future, though.
