:cry: Ok, sorry to tell you this, but all my videos were deleted by accident. Now I don't know how to upload since I have completed almost all levels in world 4 and I have 28 stars.
Edit: I will upload short parts about bugs I discovered :)

so, the star requirements of each world have been lifted? (when I betatested they were a thing)

I never noticed this until the featuring

I believe in three 72 mm large, 690 g heavy iron balls as my lords and saviours.

It's not worth to use the legacy editor anymore these days. Get SMBX2 and PGE, it will improve your experience significantly. Here's why.

Oh yeah, I got rid of them a long time ago. Only 2 doors are star locked in the whole game - the one at the very top and another secret room on the left...

Isn't the star room useless? Because you get a star when you beat a level. They are not hidden like in A kingdom at war.

The star room isn't necessarily useless as it allows you to see which levels have not been completed yet in a quicker way rather than entering each world separately. Plus, it's an optional room, so who says you need to be in it anyway? Some people really liked it...

I personally don't think the difficulty level of the episode is that high. Sure, some levels are harder than others but it gives you more satisfaction once you complete them. I hope you enjoyed playing the game though. Which level was your favourite?

Well, on my first play some levels in world 3 were almost impossible and took me hours to beat them. On my recorded gameplay I beat them on my first try :)
I do like the room, I didn't say I don't like it .

Well, world 3 is perhaps one of the hardest out of all of them... But then again, you can complete the worlds in whatever order you want ;)

From hardest to easiest in my opinion:
1. World 3-many hard levels. Including cloud condrum, which me and bossedit broke in our playthroughs, ferocious fleet 2.0 and 3-3.
2. World 2-I don't think this world is that hard but it had that one level called slippery slopes that was hard, had a checkpoint placed way before than the half of the level and it had a secret exit. Real nightmare for me. Also the boss took me half an hour to beat during my first play.
3. World 6- This world has most bosses in the game. Including Raster, birdo, bowser and the boss before Raster.
4. World 4-The puzzle pyramid was a hell of a level. Nothing much to say about that. Grooda was maybe the hardest boss. I can't decide but probably kritto was the hardest boss.
5. World 5- only hard level was the fire and ice and It's one of the most creative ones. The thing that blows the difficulty was the hammer suit, and the secret exit is very easy to find. Same goes with world 4.
6. World 1- more like a tutorial world for new players. The only "hard" level was the temple.
World 6, 5 and 4 would be a tie :P
I think the verdict was made because of couple hard bosses and levels.
Also, is the last boss counted in world 6?

Thanks for the world/boss rating and your feedback! Nope, the last boss is a standalone ;)

I wanted World 6 to feel like a gradual build-up which explains why almost all levels in it had a mini-boss.

Can I ask, are you a fan of the metroid series?
Raster is a boss in metroid fusion.
The statues from the temple level are from metroid zero mission, just like the owls in the time temple.

I do like Metroid but I wouldn't say I'm a massive fan of it... I liked the design of Nightmare and I had him in mind as a boss for a long time. I chose those statues simply because they looked cool :lol:

It's actually from the soundtrack of a Sega game called Vectorman. Do you know it?
