Hi there! This is my entry for VLDCX (My first for any VLDC, to be exact).

I've been working on this level for a week or two, but I've only gotten a bit of it done so far. Here, have a few screenshots.







As you can see, the gimmick of the level is swimming through bubbles floating in the air. Some bubbles are blue and pink, while others are green, meaning that they're poisonous. You will have to avoid these green bubbles throughout the level. There are also pipes that have bubbles emerging from them.

That's all I have for now. Feedback is appreciated! #smw{:peace:}

Thanks for the feedback, everyone! Here are some screenshots that show a bit more of the bubble gimmick (and the enemies).









I changed the purple shading to something more green, and darkened the sky. I think it looks much better than what I was originally going for.

And for those wondering what the music is, click here.

I know. I kinda made the level that way. When I got the idea of the whole bubble thing, I wanted to make the level feel Kirby-like, but with a bit of a challenge (I added poisonous green bubbles to balance the difficulty). The premise of swimming in bubbles isn't very threatening, is it? #smw{^_^}

I'd only worry with two things:

1. While your background is okay, I'd reduce the amount of red on it. It's too much hot.

2. Since the bubbles are completely transparent, if you make a large bubble, the level may get a bit confusing because you won't know if you're in a middle of a bubble or in air. Not sure what to do on this case. But it should not be a big issue, I guess.

Good luck!


Now, I did change the red to a blue in the background, but I actually added something to the bubbles. I added air bubbles inside the bubbles, as seen here:



This will probably fix the large bubble issue you pointed out, but I don't think I'll have a bubble of that size in the level anyways.

Oh, and thanks for the good luck!

Quick update:
Here's what the current background looks like.

The background looks great! It reminds me of the cyberspace. (That's probably where you got the level name from.)

The gimmick sounds interesting, and I can't wait to see what you come up with. #smw{:TUP:}

Quick Update #2:

I renamed the level to Bubbly Heights because it has a more athletic-esque theme now.

I also edited the background a bit more.



I also have a couple more screenshots.





--------------------

I was thinking of something like "Crazy Climb" or "Hectic Highlands" since you aren't going for a name that alludes to the Fuzzies.

--------------------

Music suggestions? Hmm... How about this for the lava cave or the mountain/volcano part, and maybe this for the grey, haunted cave part?

BIG UPDATE:

Bubbly Heights is almost complete! I just need to make and touch up on a few more things, and it'll be done.

Here are the final screenshots: (I think)




BEFORE:



AFTER:



Expect the level to be complete around the following/next week. March 27 may still be a few weeks ahead, but I want to get this entry done soon so I can work on something that has yet to be revealed.

MISCELLANEOUS STUFF: (in technicolour)

- This level's theme is Athletic/Mountain/Abstract (maybe)

- This level will have a moon and Dragon Coins. There's no secret exit.

- The gimmick involves swimming through bubbles floating in the air.
You'll have to avoid fish, spinies, and poisonous green bubbles, while jumping from bubble to bubble, platform to platform in order to get to the end of the level.

- There will be Blue Switch Blocks.

- The HDMA gradient is fake. I haven't figured out how make a real one yet.

- There's no Layer 3. Haven't figured out how to make that either. :/


Oh, and one more thing:

- Feedback would be appreciated! #smw{;)}

Oh boy, an update.

This just a small update, with a few different enemy placements here and there, some given advice put into play, and a new name.

(so it's technically Bubbly Heights v.1.1.)

I was thinking of making a haunted saloon level, focusing around boo blocks (maybe) and layer 2, perhaps.

I also want to make a more unique tileset. I know could if I really wanted to. #tb{:>}
