Tip: Remaking levels from other Mario games is strongly discouraged, especially popular ones (World 1-1 from SMB or SMB3, for example), as their over-presence in Mario games, official or not, often makes them uninteresting to play.

I wasn't sure whether I would make a thread or not, but it's 2am and I've gone 36 hours without sleep and my decisions are beyond my control at this point

Not really sure what exactly to do or say here, so let me just throw some screenshots at this thing and that'll probably do



The good news: it's a literal cakewalk
The bad news: it is not a figurative cakewalk

It's not that hard, though, I'm not here to make people suffer



Oh boy, a pipe
why did I take this screenshot, it doesn't even show off anything much

ah well



Mysterious moon
trust me, it's not worth your time, I'm probably gonna be docked points just for having it there because getting it is kind of dumb

Why did I leave it in, then? because yeah



HARTO

okay, that's all, I'll submit the level and all the files now, go have fun or maybe not, this is definitely not my best work from a gameplay perspective, I just liked how it looked and don't have any more time to change things much

oh well

~follow for more soft mario~
Interesting theme. Your palettes and aesthetics really show that the player is in a cake-like world. Also, I don't think the moon is badly hidden. I guess you have to jump on the bouncing balls to get there. If it seems too easy, you can still replace it with a 1-UP.

Anyway, good job.
This is a really nice looking level. It's definitely an aesthetic I haven't seen in quite some time in a hack.
Oooh, this looks yummy! And I do mean that quite literally...#ab{:P}

Never seen someone pull this off before, either. Perhaps you could also make the theme a bit icy? I think it would fit the theme well.
I have nothing else to say now. Huh...

I think that's technically possible, but you would need to bait the ball out from the other side and then hope it bounces just right, and with their random nature, that's probably not gonna happen

The real answer involves
throwing a springboard up instead of using it to get up to this area, then instead jumping on a buzzy beetle in mid-air as it falls


To be honest, I didn't really even "design" that, I just saw that it was possible and was like, "okay, if anyone bothers to do this, I'll put a moon up here, why not"

Do you mean to make the level icy, or by "theme" do you mean music? The level's already done, so I'm not gonna make it look or feel icy now, and as for the music... well, I like the music I chose for the outside area, but to be honest, I had a really hard time finding something to suit the actual cave part, which is most of the level

I think what I went with is okay, but anyway, I guess this isn't the "choose good level music" contest in the first place

In any case, thanks for the early feedback, everyone!! I'm glad it at least looks nice
Oh, that's how it's done. Then yeah, it may be a bit tough to pull off, especially because of the ceiling. You can still try to change this platform a little and allow the player to bounce on the ball to reach it. Just a suggestion.
I am very impressed with your level's aesthetics. The ground actually looks like a frosted cake (on the topic of cake, today is my birthday#tb{:DD} but I'm having cheesecake.) I thought about using the grassland tileset in my level, but I decided the cave graphics better resemble a pie crust.

I swear I made my level before looking at anyone else's and it's just a weird coincidence that we have at least two levels involving mario inside of baked goods this year

oh yeah, it has two exits (I had it written in one of the files in that download, but I figure I should say so here)


Eh, I don't really mind even if your level was inspired my mine. It may actually a shame more people didn't design dessert-based levels. There could be an entire world based on that theme.

It would be a pretty unique and fun theme, yeah, I'd be all for that

And happy birthday!! I hope it's good to ya (don't eat my submission, please)
