Tip: Press F2 on the level editor to see sub-screen boundaries. This will help you avoid glitching Dragon Coins by putting them on the sub-screen boundaries.

Congratulations to Lynnes, Aqualakitu and everyone else who ended up quite high.
Someday I should participate in this. It's not fun when you're designing a level and all of a sudden, your mouse is broke. <_>
Congratulations to everyone and the winners! The levels were incredible.

I didn't have time this year, but I'm sure I'll participate in the next one!
Beh.

:(
Oh well thats what I get for being lazy.
But its all about fun and I had fun making it.

There is no inside joke. His graphics were vanilla - they were just very cleverly manipulated.

Different judges, different opinions. It was the kind of difficult which was fun. It took me quite a few tries, but I did manage to do it without save states. I didn't really get the whole "unfairness" vibes from it.

Alright! the results are here!
This is the first level contest I have entered, so I didn't expect first place. I guess I didn't do to bad though.

It has no power ups and no midpoint. Now, this wouldn't be TOO bad if it wasn't for the fact that there are many, many ridiculously precise pixel-perfect jumps. It almost sounds as if we're talking about two completely different levels?
In the grand scheme of things, it really wasn't that long overall.

Christ, I didn't really expect one level to cause that much of a fuss. I mean, you'd think it came in first place or something.

e: that, and these contests can't be perfect. there will always be one or two entries that people will go "what the fuck" over, I guess.

Eh, there's always next time...
hahaha, it was too kaizo, I apologize then. XD

but some of you actually liked the originalily of the level, and a bit of fun too, so I take that as a consolation prize.

bah, I tried, the most important is to participate right?

I'll keep the idea and make it different for next year, I think...

Well, look on the bright side: You scored higher than DragonManGuyDude's entry.

Consider me stumped. I have no idea how it is vanilla and I'm gonna consider it custom graphics until someone tells me the secret
I can't believe I'm actually about to do this, but whatever.

-Going through the first area (grey mountain portion), it is all vanilla. The leaves on the ground come from an original GFX set (forest background).
-Going through the second portion (this is the area I'm going to assume you're talking about). The tiles used to make up the "light" effect is simply blank white squares on layer 2. The ground in the background is made up of the "orange platform that goes on forever".
-There is absolutely nothing which couldn't be vanilla in the third area.
-The final area uses more of the "orange platform" tiles, as well as the "castle complete" cutscene flowers for the ground.

Really, unless I'm missing something horribly obvious here, I really have no idea what you're talking about and I'd love it if you would clarify.

Remind me again why I didn't enter this?

---

Second place deserves no award, they are merely the first loser.
I'm surprised to get the score that i got (36.67), its can be considered good or bad in peoples opinions. But never the less, I'm glad about my entry, and glad to get that score. i found it funny about the comments, because the few things i regreted got mixed reviews. I found it hysterical when i was questioned on the storyline, I didn't quite planned it out, and i faded away from the storyline the further i got into making the level. Other then that, this was my very first contest and first thing uploaded on the website, and i found the comments very useful to keep in mind when making eventual levels/rom-hacks.

Anyways, Congratulations to everyone who entered the contest. It was very competitive and i hope to enter the next one as well.

edit: firepheinix, there is a mistake with my scores- SNN gave me a 44, not a 40. Supertails gave me a 39, not a 36.

I have those scores you say SNN and ST gave you as the scores in the excel spreadsheet so even if I was wrong somewhere, the score you have in the results is the correct score.

As for me giving you a 27, I don't like hard levels. I don't have fun with them. Therefore, these feelings got reflected in your judgment. Look at the other hard levels in the contest, like neosaver and 10204307. You'll see I rated consistently lower on harder levels. Sorry, it's just the way I felt. That's why we have more than one judge to average scores out.
spoiler I was the mystery judge

And for you peeps that have been waiting after my videos, I'll probably be starting only once ASMT is over. All you other people who wanted to do the whole 'play the whole thing' thing, think of it as a head start I suppose!
Wow...I won third place?
I am too surprised for words. I really thought I would get fifth or lower. I am just utterly surprized.

Congrats to everyone who entered. And I hope I can try for a higher ranking next time!
Well done winners! My last part was lazy as SNN said, I was in a rush to finish it though.

Remind me again why I did enter this. I'm really not that great at making vanilla levels. In all fairness, I'm not the best at making chocolate levels either, but at least there, I can utilize some of my other "skills", such as ASM and music. Ah, well...at least I basically had fun designing the level, although it was significantly more stressful than I would have liked. Congratulations to the winners! Lynnes's level was one of the ones I played, and I'm not surprised there.
