So we're having a contest. That's cool, right?
Basically, as the title states, the point of this contest is just to make a good level (i.e. a fun level). There's nothing more to it; you're free to make whatever your heart desires and utilize any tool that could optimize your level. So, let's get into the meat and potatoes of the contest.
There really isn't a lot to say here. Your tools and resources are not limited at all. The rather few rules you must follow are:
- No ROMs; submit an IPS
- Your level has to be beatable
- You are only making one level
- A two-person partnership is applicable
Here is the rubric for judging:
- Fun: 20
- Difficulty: 5
- Focus: 5
- Visuals: 5
- Music: 5
- Functionality: 10
Fun: This is where most of your score will be so make sure your level is fun. That's really what's important here. Remember to watch your level's length because if you drag it out, you'll lose points.
Difficulty: Make sure your level has consistent difficulty throughout or a gradual difficulty curve. It doesn't necessarily have to be challenging, but avoid making it too easy or too hard.
Focus: Your level has one theme, okay? Don't randomly switch or cycle through themes.
Things like overworld, title screen, or other elements of smw that aren't part of your level won't really affect your score.
Who are the judges? As of now, me and Argumentable.
You have around a month to make your level. The deadline will be Monday, April 30th when I wake up AM. Now, the first place winner will receive a nice new color of their choice for their name. If you have any personal questions, feel free to PM me or Argumentable. Thank you!
