This also makes the top piece even more bland in addition to having no BGOs. There's also an immense amount of clash
True, and probably the fact that there is a free ice flower given right in the beginning of the level.
Also that red para-koopa alone is... sick.
There some slopes in that desert tileset so you shall place some just to make the level more... lively, and not an empty "box" ( Metaphor )
Or some upside down sand tiles, just to fill that unused space. ( Or no if the level is a "lakitu level" ).
There is a HUGE lack of BGOs, enemies, coins ( not in the quicksand ) and maybe some pipes ( Those vases are soooo out of place, sorry :/ )
