Tip: Layer 3 backgrounds and tides disappear when you hit a message box, so plan your level around that. For example, you can add a sublevel without layer 3 at the start/midpoint, and include your message there.
This entire hack was made in 2 hours, 10 minutes, and 41 seconds. The levels are janky and of varying quality. 6 of the 7 levels were inspired by the community's suggestions on what sprites I should use.

This starts really nicely, but towards the end it becomes pretty glaring that this was rushed lol. Level 1 is my favorite, 4 is also okay. The rhino level could use some indication on what you're supposed to do in the P-switch part at least, had to die a lot in that one. You can beat the yoshi level with yoshi if you take the lakitu cloud... I kinda wish that was the real solution to it. The goal stage is very broken and the final two stages just don't go too many places and just end.
You could've taken an extra 30 seconds to make the levels save! I mean, I guess it's an interesting challenge to try to do it all in 5 lives. You still can't save it though.
Regarding difficulty: kaizo-like obstacles, but nothing is really that hard to execute and the levels are very short, so I'll keep this one as just Hard.
