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.
Should've mentioned Yuzo Koshiro in the artist tag btw, just to make people more interested in this port
jokes aside, I'm not even mad to lose to this port in 72HoSPC haha, this is so freaking good; I already gushed about this port enough though, so I'll just leave it at that, you did a amazing job here!!!
