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.
VP, or vanilla puzzles, is a puzzle hack I put together that has a nice vanilla feel.
P.S. you need some knowledge of glitches to beat levels later on in the hack.

This hack isn't really bad. The main problem is Start+Select exit doesn't works, so you always have to die when you missed. It makes game really annoying to play. Especially in levels with bigger time limits (example: X-3) If you don't have fast forward feature, it's get boring. Just put some reset doors next time, K? As for the puzzles themselfs, weeeeeeeeeeeell, I like some puzzles, espicially first ones. Buuuut not everything is perfect. Some are tedious to do, especially when you have to game over and do previous puzzles, not cool. (example: BRAIN MELTDOWN. Seriously, you need to hit note blocks blocks when koopa rais up, then fall down, it's just frusturating.) But some of the puzzles aren't really puzzles. "X-2" is just "Guide coin snake throught tight corridors". "MORE WATER?!" Is just "collect all DC coins, die, and reenter again". Y'know, the puzzles always should make you think... for the most part. But there are a few nice puzzles, so +.
Aesthetically, there's not much to say. It's vanilla, as name suggests, with cement blocks spam.
And lastly, some issues:
Wow, calm down! It was pretty rude! Some sensetive guys can get really upset about this.
Note block's glitched.
I can skip "get throw block" part by clipping throught ?-block, and activating it that way.
Overall, it was a decent hack, but it gets frustrating without reset doors. Some of the puzzles could be replaced with something better (actual puzzles), but as is, it isn't bad. It makes me want to make a puzzle hack. (Also why you use counter break patch, it isn't really vanilla). 4/10
Edit: Also I don't understand why it have low rating... I mean yeah, it have bad parts, but at least author tried!
