Welcome! this is my puzzle contest (SNN approved[?])
---------------------------------------------------------------------
RULES:
-NO KAIZO!
-(almost) No glitch abuse. Simple glitches, like going though floors, double grabbing, are allowed. just make sure they are really known.
allowed glitches:
* >2,3,4,5,6,8,15,18,19,22,30,31,43,51,62,64,70,74,102, 103,108. these numbers correspondent to the SMW glitches thread in the WoI.

-You need reset doors, unless its not needed.
-Has to be almost totally vanilla. if you really want some ASM, explain it in a message box, except for when you made it to make the player puzzle out what it does.
exceptions on this rule are:
* >Screen scrolling pipes
* >On/Off blocks
* >Obvious sprites, like the 64x64 muncher.
* >ExGFX, custom music and fix patches are also allowed
* >Any patch/sprite/block to prevent breaking is also allowed.

-No such things as walk through floors, or other map16 things.
-It should be able to fit all of the hack submission guidelines
-It would be nice not to abuve invisible things.
-No big mazes. small mazes are very acceptable.
-It has to be somewhat(a bit, that is) visible where mario has to get with what item. not clearly, since that would make it too easy.
-The level may only contain THREE exits at most.
-The puzzle must be possible!
-Do not lock your hack.

thanks to Brad172

thanks to SoulJester726

So yeah, thats it. go nuts.
Hmm... I'd probably join this. But I'm not very creative. Maybe I could help judge, unless I get too busy. Sign me up for judging for now if you want.

--------------------
Why not go to my Youtube channel?

I'll join as a contestant, although I don't know how good I am with puzzle levels. I'll probably make the deadline though.

--------------------
I have nothing to put here, so I'm putting these filler words in until I can think of something that I can fit here.


No glitch abuse? No hidden things? No custom things? Clearly visible items? That destroys all that is puzzlish! #w{=(}


All thats really left is item collection, and thats not fun at all... -_-

I would create a level. But, I don't have good puzzle level design. I would rather be a judge (I am almost positive I will will not be busy). Could you sign me up to be a judge please?
I'll be judge. This looks like a good idea, and is well thought out. BTW, you can ask an admin/mod if you can give out official trophies.


Unfortunately, though, I will have to agree with this:

I agree. I could do vanilla, but no glitch abuse, nothing hidden, and clearly visible things and no mazes doesn't seem very puzzleish.
Seems a bit too soon, given the Vanilla contest that just ended, the SMW Video Challenge that's going on, the Kaizo Contest, and the Chess Tournament. Too many contests...

-You need reset doors.
Not all puzzles require a reset door, it just depends on how you set it up.

-Has to be totally vanilla.
Why is this? Can't you get more creative with ASM, and have better puzzles? After all, the only reason why we had previous contests that were vanilla were because that was the main focal point. If vanilla isn't the purpose of the contest, it shouldn't be a restriction.

-It has to be clearly visible where mario has to get with what item.
Well that sure defeats the purpose of many possible ideas. Sure, some "puzzles" that are obscure are just unfair, but used properly, it can be a great puzzle.

-The level may only contain ONE exit.
Well, there goes hidden paths and switch palaces changing the dynamics of the level. β\


I may enter the contest anyways... Ehhh...... Maybe not.

if it is different, people should at least put a message box. i should have been clearer :P

i tought i already changed that rule... changing...

well, if people really want, i can change it.

i'll alter the rules a bit. i made it a bit taken too high as i expected i'd make it...

edit: hope its now as i expected it to. :)

I won't be handing out trophies for unofficial contests though, so just keep that in mind - you'll have to think up a prize of your own.



I might put some sort of signature here once. I guess.
Well, maybe you can make a boss/sprite specifically for them. I know you can, since you made one for Koopinator. So maybe a boss for 1st place, an interesting sprite for 2nd and1st place, and a simple sprite for all three winners (assuming it's a top 3 thing).

Also, I can't be judge? #w{:<}

Seems like a low amount of points for fun, which is essentially the purpose of any level, right?
