Well, that was overly extreme. It's hard to complain about the difficulty in a level that's a) entirely optional, and b) the last one in the entire game. I didn't even get close to 100% (I think it was around 15 red coins and 3 flowers), but I had a few complaints based on what I got through anyway.
I noticed the Shy Guy would sometimes fail to spawn from the Goonie, making this jump extremely brutal without that extra boost. Not sure what would be causing this.
Getting past this guy is extremely annoying, and with such a tight space + the darkness, it feels too hard even for 6-E.
I kind of assumed you could drop down this pit and it would warp you somewhere. Might be worth covering it up.
...was there supposed to be a flower down this hole? The "marking" earlier showed an ice block with a flower in it, but it wasn't present here.
The ending puked.
