Welcome to an uncharted land! In this hack we find our heroes Sarbitz and DG stranded on The Island of Y O S H O by an awful storm. On the island they find Nozomi Tojo, a helpful infobox that will guide our heroes through the island, saving her friends that have been cursed along the way.

Holey Mountain is now a normal tile
Ceiling in Iggy's Fort is now a thing
OwO What's This 1 is now unenterable after the first go
Demo now has an end level
@Eevee Thank you! Alot of people have been telling me the same thing: it's decent. When I work on W2, I'm gonna look into more exciting and engaging level design. As for the bugs you pointed out? I'll fix those in the W2 update since I already released a bugfix.btw thanks for fixing my tags
Nice to see you fixed some of the gripes MrDeePay pointed out. Indeed this is a decent little hack, especially for a first. It could use some polish, but for now it's acceptable I'd say. I have some gripes of my own you may wish to address in future updates.
-Minor but some of the levels still have cutoff, such as in the switch palace, the pipe MDP mentioned and the corners in the swamp level. You needn't fix them, but it would be nice if you could.
-My biggest gripe is the sprite limitations which sometimes crop up, such as here and here. These aren't too major, however in this area although I was not able to replicate it, on my first time here, one of the platforms did not appear, making the ascent quite difficult. My number one suggestion would be this patch. It's very simple to use, and you'll not need to worry about issues such as this!
-Finally it's a bit silly that you can't leave the end of demo level, but at the same time, it's just that, an end of demo level. It would be nice if people could go back to see if they'd missed anything though.
Anyway, not too bad, keep at it.
(also, I fixed your tags, keep an eye on them next time lol)
