I believe this is the first pipe level in this category, so I felt inspired and I needed to contribute to the cause!

NOTE: There's a secret tanooki suit in this level that can be legitimately obtained. Can you figure out how to find it?

That is no way to use the giant empty ? blocks. I suspect you may just be a faker.

I am sorry, I did not remember any other way to interconnect those pipes, I did what I could

I'm sorry if this goes against the etiquette

Custom graphics can make levels more similar to SMB3. However, custom graphics also make a level worse. Sometimes it's worth it to not include any custom graphics to maximize the quality of the level.
As for the level, this looks very interesting, I'm really getting a SMB3 World 7 vibe from this! I'll play this level later.

But your guidelines say they can be used if needed, which I suggest they are here and would make this level better

Yes they can be used as needed, but the guidelines clearly state that custom graphics can only make levels worse, not better.
Sometimes you need to make your levels worse in order to achieve a certain look. Sometimes it's not worth it.

I would use the giant wood blocks to connect pipes, personally.

This was a fun level by the way, one of the best vanilla levels I've played in quite a while really.

short Review of Pipe Climb based on SMB3's standarts

This is a SMB3 level based on World 7 pipe maze one. The level design is nicely done, such as note blocks placed here and I love the NPC placement, as it looks great, too. The graphics aren't terrible and the decoration is done well. The secret tanooki suit idea is nicely done well. Overall, this is a pretty good level that features some smb3 world 7 vibes and I recommend everyone to try this out. 7.5/10

moved to pretty good
