(Cancelled) Vague Gimmick Contest!

Link Thread Closed
So, is this basically a level design contest?
Count me in.
I've got a level in the making already.
Sooo... How and when are we going to get assigned a gimmick?
I will become alive again sometime soon.

The gimmick is "switch".
It's on the first post.
Ohhh... OK thanks for clearing that up for me.

Pretty much, but there's a twist this time in that you must build your levels around a central gimmick, which you decide based on the vague description given. In this case, that description is "Switch". So, as I state in the first post, you take this description, interpret it however you want as long as it still fits anything that could define "Switch", and then make that your gimmick.

I think I'll try this out. I have a pretty good idea already, now I just need to figure out how to pull it off...
I remember you talking about this in the IRC.

I'm in.
I guess I will join, I have a idea for a vanilla gimmick.
This will be interesting. I just hope no one has the same idea as mine.

Heh, I remember when you mentioned this on the IRC. I might actually participate in this, but hopefully I'll get working on it before the last day. ._.
I hope I can come up with an interesting gimmick, or rather an interesting interpretation of the gimmick.

Yeah thanks for making my entry look like teh suckz :(

also yay i can get access to the rest of your hack

Also, can we post updates and they will be counted?
I have a question: What's with the No Sprite Limit patch? I mean, it only enables us to use a few more sprites, so how does it effect the "ASMless" bonus?
so yeah, hoho

On that subject, would it be OK to use the Time up fix and not lose the ASMless bonus? I have no time limit in my level.

This is not to say you can't have portions of your level fit in another interpretation, though. Going back to the "climbing" example, if your interpretation was "Mario Climbs a Mountain", you can still have Mario climb up some vines to get up the mountain and not be breaking any rules, but it can't explicitly take up a good bit of the level to where it turned into another gimmick. Hope that clears some things up.


So, a level with a specific interpretation of "switch" would be okay if it also had a few other, very minor interpretations?

Hmm....

Well, I'll be releasing a 1 world demo soon anyways, and there's only one level in there that people couldn't see normally anyways. It would be pretty uncool of you to try and steal something from my hack, but whatever.

Unless it's absolutely central to your gimmick (i.e., it's a required part of what makes your gimmick what it is), it shouldn't affect it. Here's my thinking: Things like teleport blocks when pipes or doors could also work would get you a lower ASMless bonus, while big ASM hacks that make the entire thing work would get none at all. It's actually kinda hard for me to definitively define what will and will not get you a good ASMless bonus, considering my definition of what gets it and the fact that if it's central to the gimmick, it won't get you any points at all...but I don't want it to be all-or-nothing. Because then what of the people who use a little ASM where they need to, but otherwise have a vanilla gimmick? Hmm... Well, in the meantime, let's settle for this: If you use ASM to get around a bug, glitch, what have you, for example, but the ASM isn't part of your main gimmick, it will not affect your ASMless bonus. Agreed? I see no point in punishing for such a thing, considering I had to do it for EVERY LEVEL MORTON!.
