2nd Annual Kaizo Level Design Contest - Completed

Link Thread Closed
@JeRRy86: I just tested that area, and Yoshi still appears.

Either way, I will be making another update, as a shell ended up disappearing on me while I was testing.

REMOVED
ok, i have a question that is probably stupid, but im just being very lazy, and want to use some puzzles i have already made for my creativity entry instead of making new ones. so, does kaizo mean the level has to be trying to kill you, or can it be an insanely hard puzzle like spw3 1-1 where you had pretty much nothing trying to kill you.

yes, im making a puzzle level, because they are just sooooo much fun! xD

EDIT: lol green koopa!

Question two, You mentioned something along the lines of 'using regular SMW items and doing unique things with them'/ Does Map16 stuff count as points in the creativity section?

The "Difficult" category's objective is to create the hardest level that you can, as in the level is out to kill you. If the level is lacking in difficulty, then yes, you won't be getting as many points. It's not exactly strict nor lenient, as it's quite a subjective category.

As for MAP16, yes, that can be used for some nifty creativity, as long as it's executed well, and not abused so that it's "haha, the ground kills you here for no reason, oh and there's munchers that you can swim in".

Yes, I forgot, because I cannot think about any creative Kaizo Trap. Anyway you can use my demo of difficulty in Creativity Category.

To verify, I am entering "MISSION IMPOSSIBLE" (http://bin.smwcentral.net/15038/firstversion.ips) into the "Creative" category?

That is what the "Difficult" level is for, a level which is out to kill you. Clearly, such a difficult puzzle as mentioned would be best suited for the "Creative" category.

Since Ulti said it's better for creativity, you could make a puzzle level by taking all of the current puzzles in your hack and putting them into one level, and enter both categories.

Why not go to my Youtube channel?

The contest will be open for 1 month, in which submissions must be posted and linked to in this thread. You are free to privately PM an entry, though this is not recommended. All entries must be posted in the File Bin, a.k.a. "My Files" in the sidebar. If you are unable to use the File Bin for any reason, then you must privately PM me with your reason, and you may use an alternative file hosting website such as MediaFire or MegaUpload, which will be re-hosted by me for the duration of the contest and judging.

Problem: You cannot enter both categories with one level.

I understand that, I meant for him to finish his difficulty level and enter that, then make a different level out of his puzzle hack and put it in the creativity contest.

Why not go to my Youtube channel?

@ OGS93 - i know, but no glitches allowed, so im not entering

@ Ulti - thanks

@ Ownagethugz - that is why i made the request 3 days ago for a goal point sprite that does... nvm, just check requests to know wat it does... the reason is because all the puzzles are kaizo traps... mostly all of them...

Two more questions, YAY! (Not -_-')

After hearing it has to be uber hard for it to be in the difficult section, I had to go for creative. However, most of my hack is complete for the most part and being uber hard is not an exception as this is meant to be played by a human player. (a masochistic one at that) Can 'Creative' count as making unique jumps of just the general use of something to do another thing it was not meant to do. (Flying Blocks used as a platform for instance)

Or does creativity come from the look and feel of a level, using custom music that suits the mood of the palette with custom sprites and custom everything. I am just voicing my concern over the fact my computer hates any form of custom blocks and sprites, so I plan on making it a Vanilla Kaizo hack (besides custom music)

Can you please clarify?


I think the creative category is for original ideas, things that aren't just like, "You've got to jump over the spikes to grab the mushroom, then you've got to duck jump back and do the turn block elevator thing, then you've got to do some mushroom running over a line of munchers, then etc.". I assume the creative category is for levels that are different, kind of like Bowser's Ruins.

But that would probably be in the difficulty category, do to it's uber difficulty. But it would probably score high points in the creativity category as well.

Bowser's Ruins. *evil cackle*

Let me rewrite that.

Are you scoring the creativity based on the creativity in music selection, block selection, et cetera? Or are you judging based of the use of the items and the variety of puzzles?

And is length a factor?

EDIT: Right now I am in a tough part. The deadline is approaching and I have the level 1/2 way done, but right now under my level, I see it neither falling under creative (Basic Map16 tricks and creative jumps, only a few cool things here and there), nor difficult (meant to be played w/o slowdown, but with a lot of save states). I'm at ends. -_-'

EDIT 2.0: LAST question, by 'two exits only' do you mean only two 'levels codes' it is on (105, 103 for instance), or do you mean, two exits for the level, (i.e: Regular path, secret path, switch room, et cetera)


I can answer your questions, I think (correct me if I'm wrong, Ulti):

1. Creativity most likely does not require those, but they will allow for more original ideas. The Creativity category is for using what you have in interesting and original ways. Like for the Vanilla Level Design contest, the winner used a Rip Van Fish to make it look like a Chuck was sleeping.

2. By "two exits", he's talking about the actual end of the level. I believe this was to prevent people sticking four switches into the level, so that the player had to go through the level 5 times to actually get to the end.

Also, for your level, it would most likely fall under Difficulty. Levels in the Difficulty category do not have to require slowdown (and probably shouldn't, because that usually makes the level less fun).

Following up on this, here is hopefully the final, fixed version.
