My Short Review
It looked good by the screenshots but I was disappointed to figure it was Kaizo.
Parts of the title screen gets cut-off because of the slots, move some of the objects away.
As soon as the intro screen loads, I fall right into a pit of munchers, this is not good the player shouldn't be able to die in the intro.
There are munchers right above Mario, since the screen didn't scroll up and there was no signal I died without seeing how, take out the munchers.
I can die here too.
You need to capitalize some of these words. Also you have to jump off to activate the message, though you don't die don't do that, just add some land or at least make the message appear in the 1st screen. Also take out the munchers in the intro.
There are a few errors here. 1st in the bottom right, part of the hill is wrong, I can't get out and I have to kill myself using the nearby muncher, it's floating, (hard to see but it is) and...
...the mailbox is a 3-up. So fix the BG, take out the cement blocks, and take out the 3-up box.
I don't consider a removal reason, but you should fix the "S" it's a simple hex edit.
Though this was rather easy it can still be annoying.
The time limit is short and this is only the beginning of the level, increase the time more.
Because these munchers are shorter I can die about a frame if I'm correct.
This jump was really annoying since it was impossible, unless...
...you get the mushroom. There was no clue or anything about the mushroom there, put some coins or something to make it more easier.
When I get this goal, I die. But in order to complete this level...
...I had to go under the goal post. Also that ledge below the goal post is using the bottom row of Lunar Magic, don't use the bottom row as it will not appear in LM. (Though I'm pretty sure that's what you meant to do.)
I know the overworld isn't finished but you should delete the rest of it since there is cut-off.
This looks strange, why not use a regular pipe?
Also when I come out of that pipe, I can get hit if I don't move fast, not good.
I'm not sure if you changed the palette or not but when I press the silver P-switch...
...it acts like a blue P-switch. Change the palette.
If I don't make it to the pipe when this falls down...
...I'm pretty much stuck unless you do that one glitch where you enter the pipe in midair which is not good. Put the pipe all the way down or something.
Uhh... what is this? Use text instead of hyphens.
On the left of that rope there's some random tile there that is cut-off. Also the palette is bad for the rope and tile.
If I don't run up the triangle and try to go jump from under it, an invisible block appears causing me to get trapped. Take out the invisible block.
This is still considered floating munchers since the lines is just so you know where the chainsaw goes.
To get here you either had to spin jump off the chainsaw or do a blindjump, both of those are bad.
What's the point in the P-switch? It didn't do anything.
To get to the actual goal was really annoying since you had to avoid touching the fake goals and do some special things, and if you touch the wrong one, then oh well. :/ Which is not good.
When you get to the right one and you don't have the yellow switch, then you die. Warn the player in the beginning of the level that you need to activate the yellow switch. Also take out the fake goals, they're annoying. Also the water is cut-off.
After I beat that level I can go to the other levels, might wanna fix that.
Like the intro screen as soon as I enter this level I have to think fast or I die.
Uhh... what magic? Are you talking about the fireworks?
Floating munchers. D:<
Blind-jump. Put coins to lead the way.
Now here's the fireworks, 1st of all there is glitched graphics, 2ndly...
It makes Mario disappear, what's the point of the fireworks? Remove it.
You cannot even get there, or at least I don't no how.
The seaweed seems to kill me for some reason.
Not really a removal reason but it seems weird that I can go through that bullet bill end, I would change it.
If I hit the P-switch around here, I can get caught in the blocks and die.
Too many banzai bills, either take 3 of them out or apply the no sprite limits patch. Though the max would be 2 without making Mario disappear I believe.
The mole is pretty far ahead, if you don't have a mushroom you will have to die since you have to take the hit.
It's pretty hard to make it inside of here.
If you fall in here your trapped.
This looks weird, also I can fall down there.
I can swim in this lava, it's called lava not water.
I know exactly what you mean. You might have forgot to add some text, same goes for the other one.
You should use that message box to tell the player that there's invisible blocks above it, though it wasn't too hard to find, it can help.
It looks kinda weird that I can stand in midair here.
Bottom row of LM is used here.
I can't swim in this lava? But if I go below it...
...I can swim in it. Use water instead of lava.
Also it's weird that this acts like a vine, why not use the regular vine graphics?
To get pass that thwomp I had to hit the turning thing which pretty much was invisible. Try to make it visible.
In this area, there is something invisible that killed me.
I can go in here.
What's up with the outside ghost house ledge?
Also the fast scroll was used here, don't use it just don't as there is some problems with it.
When I come out of the pipe the BG is messed up, you have the wrong Initial settings.
I can die when I hit the goal post.
As soon as I enter the level I can get killed if I move to right.
Maybe giving a tip or something explaining that you can swim in this lava would be nice. Also the corners have the wrong tiles in the top of the screen.
Then when I enter it's just the 2nd part of Iggy's castle, the only thing new was the thwomp and the fast scroll.
It was ok but the fact that I don't like Kaizo and this was Kaizo... yea. You have a lot to fix, also Kaizo's aren't allowed.
