Tip: Use ledge tiles (Act as: 100) before and after slopes. Using solid tiles (Act as 130) makes Mario lose speed while running on the slope.”

Just started working on this. I'm going with something simpler with this. It's basically a cave with line guides and two sections, the second one being vertical. I'm halfway on the first one currently.

Made some progress on the level. The name of the level is Sizzling Subterrane, by the way.

lol double post
I quite like the level design there, it looks kinda challenging.
Also pretty nice palette choice imo.

Good luck with this hope to see more!
Thanks for the feedback!

Okay, here's a video of the first section #ab{:P}
Looks nice and it's a bit challenging at parts. I noticed small cutoff at 0:25 with the pipe and the corner edge.
Yeah, there's some cutoff, but there's no way to fix it with vanilla graphics so I'm keeping it like this (and I actually don't care much about minor cutoff, to be honest). Anyway, thanks!
A fully square block or a recolored ON/OFF switch acting like stone blocks would fit.

But it's minor, you don't have to do it.
...and it's done.

Grinder Grotto

I ended up removing the lava for some reason, and made some major edits on the second section. Some feedback would be great :D
The original level was never really fiery-themed to begin with outside of palette choice. So I guess that change is an improvement?

Overall, the level seems okay, I couldn't find any real issues in your design. I want to say your level is perfectly fine, but something feels off. I can't quite put my finger on it... maybe I just felt that the the enjoyability dropped any time I wasn't hopping platforms or dodging grinders... who knows. Maybe someone else will figure out what's really missing.
