THE GREAT BIG NOTICE!
The contest deadline's been changed to July 19th, I figured nobody realized the deadline was tonight and it had looked like i couldn't change the title last time for soem reason. oh god i'm so sorry
hokay i know that all yall hate playing hacks like kaizo mario world but what about making hacks like that? and since everyone else is making a contest here we go.
you have one month (Until july 15) to make the hardest level you can make. You can use ExGfx, ASM, custom sprites, custom music, custom blocks, or anything else you want.
You can use levels from your hacks, as long as you yourself think they're hard.
you'll get a score out of forty, thirty if you only use SMW graphics (but you can score 10 bonus points if your level doesn't look like crap (Like kaizo
levels must be uploaded as an .ips (NO ROMS GUYS!) onto a filehosting site.
points are awarded as follows
possibility: if your level is literally impossible you're getting a zero, period. seriously. I know someone's going to do it to be funny and someone else is going to do it because they didn't bother to test their level so...
i'm not gonna blame you if you can't make and test a level that's as hard as kaizo's or the later levels in VIP are, some people are like philosophically opposed to save states and i respect that. Some people just don't like retardedly hard games and I respect that. But i wanna see what the toughest levels you've got are like.
creativity: the big one. does your level have a clever gimmick? examples are like joshua's tidal swamp, the entire VIP series...
you can score a maximum of 10 points for this.
HELPFUL HINT! try to make a difficult boss. there are a million ways to modify lemmy/wendy/Reznor/Big Boo to make the fight more difficult, and a few for the other bosses too.
fun: did I/the other judges if someone else joins in have fun playing your level?
graphics: if you use ExGfx...
you're automatically scored on this and you get a mark out of 10. basically just make your level look like an actual game's level.
If you don't use ExGfx...
you can get 10 bonus marks if you make your level not look like it was in Kaizo world. it shows craftsmanship. I'm making a superhard hack and there aren't any floating munchers in my hack, no sirree!
style: This is miscellaneous. stuff like good grammar in message boxes, humour, choice of ExGfx... if you put Black Plague in your level (i guess you'd have to ask Reading first tho. unless you are Reading, in which case...) you will get at least a 7/10. he's a beautiful beautiful... three-eyed Big Boo.
at the end of the contest (july 5) I'll make a .txt file with my reviews and constructive criticism. if anyone else wants to judge they can do it too. I won't make a level; i'm judging and my hack is temporarily frozen until my computer is fixed.
the prize for the contest is that i'll be your best friend for the day. if SNN wants to make a trophy for this then sure. Kamek's Revenge got pretty hairy at the end after all.
stay frosty! hope to see some people do this at least.
