Tip: A common level trope to avoid is "item babysitting". This involves forcing the player to carry P-Switches, springboards, or other items all around the level. Usually, this doesn't end up being very fun or engaging, so use another level gimmick if you can.

Latest News: Spooky Halloween Time Again!
I came by to dust off the cobwebs in the news section, but since it's October I've decided to leave them up! I also hit the switchy on holiday nicknames and colors, so you better change em up so you don't look like the fool named "Christmas Koopa Claws 9000". #smw{-_-2}

And you better keep an eye out on Discord, for I hear there will be some witching going on this month......#smrpg{:P}#smrpg{:P}#smrpg{:P}#smrpg{:P}
