Originally intended to be my judge level for ASLC, but then I quit so here it is. Fully compatible with SMBX2.0 Beta 3! The level can be completed in a number of ways to receive different rewards at the end! There's also a "bonus" B-side section to test your mastery of the level's mechanics.

The spectacular finale to the Betterified pentalogy, in which Mario Or Toad must finish off the Dimension Master once and for all, lest he does whatever evil he has up his metaphorical sleeves. Playable in Beta 3 or higher,

Image

Image

Image

YOU NEED THE LATEST VERSION OF LUA FOR THIS AND ALSO THE LATEST MULTIPOINTS.LUA THAT'S SUPER IMPORTANT.

Image

Image

Image

THIS LEVEL IS KIND OF HARD AND BORDERLINE KAIZO BUT STILL FUN I PROMISE! REQUIRES LUA AND 2.0 ALSO.

Image

Image

Image

IT'S THREE LEVELS. FOR THE PRICE OF ONE! IT'S INSANE. ABSOLUTELY CRAZY. THE LEVELS AREN'T VERY 'OTHER DIMENSION' AND THEY MIGHT NOT HAVE AS MUCH GRAPHICS ALTERATION, BUT I PROMISE THEY WILL BE FUN. THE LEVELS IN NO PARTICULAR ORDER ARE: DROPLET DELL, SYSTEM ERROR AND ABOVE A BLINDING STAR!

Image

Image

Image

THIS LEVEL ALSO REQUIRES LUA, NO SURPRISE THERE. MARIO ASCENDS INTO THE HEAVENS BUT UNFORTUNATELY HIS CURRENT LANDSCAPE DOES NOT ALLOW FOR SUCH VERTICAL MOVEMENT, WHICH DOES CAUSE QUITE A FEW PROBLEMS FOR OUR PLUMBER. WILL MARIO BE ABLE TO ASCEND TO HEAVENS AND FINALLY HAVE FUN AGAIN?

Image

ANYWAY, HAVE FUN Y'ALL
WADDLE DERP OUT

Nice level. Here is a review.

Design
This level has some really nice design aspects. The background and the level designs were great. The enemies were custom albeit strange and I like the outside design. The cave design was very detailed as most of the default cave designs are quite bland. This was a great level that had the some really cool design aspects. Outside has some few blocks of debris that you needed to climb over and that made it a bit harder to traverse. There were small little camp-fires around that added a little touch that I really liked. Overall the design for this level was great. The music added a lot to the level and it made it so much better. Okamiden is where the music is from and both the tracks add a sort of mysterious theme to the level.

Difficulty
The level is actually quite short, it's not that difficult as the level is only about 1 minute long so if you die you only have to restart a bit. However I'm guessing this is a series of level's so that's why it's short. There are some really annoying enemies however that I found quite frustrating. The small enemies that thrown "grassy bones ??" they blend into the grass a little too well and are very hard to see. You also can't jump on them either and swiping them with the tail is also quite difficult without taking damage. You can avoid them quite easily though and thus are not that much of the problem. Earlier in the level though before you head into the cave they can be annoying when the play the level first time and when I did I didn't even see them and died. The walking flowers were a funny replacement to a standard Goomba and they made me laugh. The level was pretty easy apart from that though.

Enjoyability
This level was fun! It simple as has some really nice touches. As Sanct said above the bouncy blue things are great trampolines! They are really cool and I loved their addition to the level. The level was fun to play even if it was short and I really can't wait to play more is the series. Using the bouncy blue things to get around the cave was fun and it really added to the enjoyability. I hope you use these more in future levels.

Overall
Even though the level is short and has some annoying aspects that in my opinion, frustrated me a bit. I enjoyed it. The aspects included were fun to mess around with and play. I really wan't to play more.

7.5/10

Hm. Although I'm very glad with the feedback you provided, I disagree with some of your points.
First off, the leaf NPCs are supposed to camouflage and hide in the grass, and they even make indicational sounds; I hope your LunaLua was correctly installed, since I personally didn't find the leaf NPCs much of a problem. The last jump in the cave is just a matter of control; if you don't hold the jump button for that long you don't bounce the full distance and make the jump easily. Thanks for the review though!

EDIT: this was an older version of the level! I've already fixed the final jump! Updating the link ASAP.

EDIT 2: Fixed it! The final jump is now much more doable.

Right, I see. Tried the jump again. Fix is much better now. Will update my review. I have my sound on low and I probably didn't hear them very well. I don't know. Say, it's not that big of a problem anyway and I loved the level! :D

I guess once you know they are there, it's not too bad and I may have overdone it in the review. It just the first time, it could be a problem.

The Forgotten Passage

Wow this is an absolutely beautiful level. The visuals presented are great with excellent music choice, The background in particular is stunning. The downside was the bgos and tileset for the outside work, but should be recolored to match the background more. Like have the trees and grass be a slightly brighter color than the trees in the background with the dirt possibly being slightly. Nonetheless what you have shown looks good still, but still has room for a little improvement. The bouncy fruits are a nice touch to the level with all the other NPCs being a good match. I particularly like the leaf NPCs; even though they camouflage really well, you're fair with the sound indication and good placement. The passageway was a nice section, with the only annoying thing being a poorly placed swooper near two blocks to the left of a spring fruit. Otherwise power up spacing and coin placement was well done. The biggest issue I had with this level is it's so short! You have everything set up nice, but there wasn't enough for me to feel satisfied completing this level because everything goes by so quickly. The passageway in particular needs more to it for sure considering you can sprint and fly through half of the section with the leaf, cutting the time spent in there immensely. Otherwise what you have here is amazing, but I hope you add more because I love the ideas behind this level.

6.5/10

Edit: Also magibowser gave me a remade version of the DKC snakes if you want me to send them to you.

I personally wouldn't score a level down for length as it's one of the most subjective aspects in level design; I can see where you're coming from in terms of graphics, I'll see what I can do about that.

It's not really the length itself that bothers me, but what you did with the length.

Like if it was just the outside section, or the passageway section, then the length is perfectly fine. By dividing it up the way you did you have two short sections where it feels kinda like a tease to player exploring such a pleasant environment and atmosphere. I might not be explaining it correctly, which I apologize for sounding subjective.

Otherwise sounds good with the graphics. Is this a part of your episode?

You don't need the wooden platform to hit the first bomb block, all you need is to be very determined to do a pixel perfect jump, but hey it makes it so I don't have to restart so I probably shouldn't have told you this since now you'll fix it
