I didn't really mean it's low effort when I wrote "it's lazy. It's uninspired." It's more like people dismiss this kind of level design for those reasons, whereas imo it's just another form of difficulty and it's fun to play something that challenges your ability to read and react.
I'm not a big kaizo player but like watching other people play them, this looked really interesting. I like the concept of intentionally placing more sprites than normal and the fact you can tell their placements have been thought out.
