10 Days Remain
Still plenty of time to enter!
Try not to over think or overdo your levels. This is called the “Short and Sweet” contest after all!
Also please test your patches
I’m unlikely to check and see if they work until the contest is over and then It’ll be too late for you to update!

I do have one question, however: While you're imposing a screen limit (00-09), would using 0A as a completely flat screen beyond the goal be acceptable to prevent Mario from walking against the edge of the screen?
It really doesn’t matter to me, but I’d suggest using level enders that don’t involve Mario walking to work around that problem.

One question, though: Would split paths count towards the screen count? By which I mean; say at the first two screens there is a split path and no way to cross between the two, and then they meet at the 10th screen. So there are 2 screens at the beginning, then you choose one of two paths, each of which are 7 screens long, then meet up at the 10th screen at the end. Would that be acceptable?
count toward the screen count. What you described would be seen to me as 17 screens.

Doesn't layer 3 require you to load another GFX file tough?
Well, you’re allowed 4 GFX files for tiles so it’d still be fine (BG/layer2 + FG/layer1 + layer 3 = 3 gfx files), unless I’m missing something about layer 3.
(I don’t use it that much)
Edit: Some trophies I drew up real quick (I may improve them some).
Strawberries are surprisingly hard to draw. Keep in mind that since this is an unofficial contest these will not be real badges or anything. They will, however, be a cool reminder of how you did in this contest.
