Tip: A power-up is most useful to a player shortly after the midway point.

After recently playing some hacks, I just thought of a few more Killjoys.

No Mid Points in Fortress Levels

Honestly I see no reason to just not include a midpoint to these levels, yet a lot of hacks seem to do it. The only time I don't mind is if the custom bosses are easy enough considering most hackers seem to use custom bosses now in days but when you have a hard custom boss at the end of a difficult fortress, why not include a midpoint? It really just makes me not look forward to fortress levels admittedly. (What's even worse is when you combine my first killjoy being no powers ups before the boss with this killjoy and create the ultimate killjoy...)

Blargg Boss Battles

Don't get me wrong. I actually like this custom boss a lot and thought it was pretty creative. I'd be lying though if I didn't think the boss battles created with this boss aren't harsh. You're required to spin jump on him as he's coming out of the lava...which maybe wouldn't be so bad if he didn't also shoot two fire balls which often like to block you from spin jumping on him. The main problem is that it's really easy to miss him which results in falling in the lava and dying. Whenever I encounter this boss I usually die quite a few times just because how the arena is setup. (Ironically encountered this boss twice in two different hacks these past days.) There's only been one time where I didn't find fighting this guy that frustrating and that's in Super Mario World: The Secret of the 7 Golden Statues and that was because the lava only hurt you instead of out right kill you.

Uncommon Powers Ups

I don't know, it just really bothers me when power ups aren't so common in the hack to where they aren't even included in some levels. Usually hacks that are like this are the ones that actually need more power ups and it just kind of seems like a cheap way to make the levels more difficult. True you can always try to get better at playing the hack but what a lot of people don't realize is it's really easy to get hit and once is all you need in cases like this.
