I've played the updated version, and although it was still nice, there are two things you should change:
- The midpoint doesn't work properly, as the player gets stuck in the ceiling. I'm also against the invisible midpoint that you're forced to get. I think it would be better if you made a visible midpoint that players could avoid, in case they want to collect all the Ace coins.
- The slide, while better than last time, still kills Mario if he tries to do it in one go. You should also change
or something similar to this. This way, the player doesn't randomly stop on the horizontal part. You might also want to extend the landing area of the first slide (indicated with the red circle below), so that the player can land there and then take the second slide.
This way, Mario doesn't get killed (because he can take both slides individually, but if he doesn't stop after the first one, he will only make a small hop from the second slide and fall in the munchers).
I also have a few suggestions for things that aren't necessarily bad, but may improve the level:
- Put the Ace coin message for the secret star in the first message block after the water text. It might get annoying if people have to read the text every time they grab the first Ace coin.
- We could just put a filter on the hub to make this Mario and Luigi only. Although I like your attempts to make this level playable with all characters, it's a shame that you have to skip some part of the level. This is just a suggestion, if you want to keep this the way it is, it is fine too.
