2nd Annual Kaizo Level Design Contest - Completed

Link Thread Closed
Well I've come to a decision. Seeing as I am the host and have created the userbars, those will be the official ones. For example, if a hack creator makes userbars, those are the official ones, even if others make better ones. Of course, the unofficial ones are free to be used.

Userbar on the first page.

    yes, they are, and the OW will be edited, i just did that for play-testing purposes, if you go to the left it will go to the first stage so you can play through them all at once. also, there will be several levels for help, such as the tutorial, and more.

    sure, i can test it! u can email it to me at [email protected] but i wont be able to get to it tonight, cuz i got to finish some home work... :( but i will test it this week! xD

    also, my next update for my hack will be the final demo! it will have every level, every edit to the OW and what not, the only difference from it and the final version will be changes making it easier... because as of now, the feed back i have received was that it is too difficult... im gonna send it to patgangster and see what he thinks...

    also, its a good idea if you use invisible blocks to give them an outline, or else its just stupid, especially if you need them to get somewhere! if they are just for hellish traps and death, then keep them totally invisible! xD

    oh, btw, my hack uses barley any invisible blocks, i think that one screen you see in my last spoiler is the only room in the game that uses them except in th room with the water on the ground, which are to make the water death! xD

    Or if you downloaded it from SMWC. And if it says give credit, give credit.

    I think I'll join this contest, altough I don't have that much experience with kaizo hacks.

    I got 2 questions tough, how long may a level be?
    Also, will deathtraps subtract points from your total (for example, a pipe that leads to your death or the old moon + invis coinblocks trap)?

    Woah, that looks like it's gonna be VERY HARD. Can't wait to see that get TAS'd.

    BTW, are those dotted boxes invisible Coin Blocks?
    @BlackEagle766:Read the rules+guidelines+previously posted questions.

    Levels can be as long as you wish, but you're at risk of turning the level into something dreaded and boring.

    Deathtraps will not automatically reduce the amount of points as long as they are fun (deathtraps can be fun, I swear). Perhaps you will get points deducted for creativity, but I'm not a judge so I wouldn't know.

    @MarioFan22: They are.
    Of course you should fight fire with fire, you should fight everything with fire.

    Oooh look at my userbar!
