i know that. but why do you need to put alot of coins in the levels? i just dont understand that. it didn't really add anything new to the levels. it just a waste of time for a creator to put them.

Coins give the player a reason to explore certain areas. As a designer, you can use coins to manipulate the player's movements. Telling them that it's safe to jump a certain direction. They also provide a reward as 100 of them give the player an extra life.

Of course. i know that. i always put a coins to "give the player a reason to explore certain areas" and to "manipulate the player's movements" but that enough coins for a levels. everyone still says there isn't enough coins in my level. do i need to fill a screen with them or something? and 1up are pointless anyway because people probably play my level in a level editor.and i do hide 1up mushroom in my level.

i have coins in my levels ok? it's just not enough for people taste.
and you can't buy stuff in this game. atleast if you not use lunalua (can you even do that?)

the reason i post this is because i dont understand why do you need alot of them in a levels? not why they exist.

A Mario level without coins is like a GTA game without sexual or adult references.

Without or with too few coins, the level feels bland and empty.
