This is literally the only issue I had with the level: where the fuck am I? Am I in ruins, in space, on some asteroid and why is it full of sand? While pretty damn cool...I was constantly curious as to how all of this can co-exist together in such a weird place.
Level Design [4/5]
Pretty spot on, although I could do without the artificial extensions: such as that red switch block. Your level played a lot on level extensions but it also made it immersive and funny to watch. All in all, this if one of the levels that can take the concept of artificial extensions and use it wisely. The usage of various elements, such as the propeller block, managed to keep such a simplistic design style original up to the very end of the level. Like I honestly didn't except a small little muncher run with a kuribo shoe at the end of the level, very cute.
Check you pipe usage btw. In section 5 you can get stuck trying to exit if you don't do a running jump. Also, I won't dock points for it, but I am hearing multiple complaints on the lava lotuses used in this section.
In section 1, right before the pipe with Warp 6, you can glitch right through the wall and get stuck. I won't dock points off, but change this before someone other than me gives a crap.
Graphical Continuity [4/5]
While this level doesn't make much sense, at least it was consistent. I also like the usage of sand in a few side sections was a lovely touch, as I noticed you were meticulous as to what was fore-ground and background in each section it was used.
Section 5's BG doesnt exactly fit with the desert theme you chose here. For a cave BG recolored to be brown isnt exactly the most fitting graphic you could've chosen.
BGO Placement [5/5]
No issues. Any comments were displayed in "Graphical Continuity."
NPC Placement [5/5]
While I would've like the rolling bombs to have been used in a cool fashion, I can say I can dock any points off in this field whatsoever. Kudos.
Difficulty / Replayability [5/5]
I can easily say that if I wasn't a lazy bastard I would certainly play this level again. Curious though, was this expected to appear in a contest or episode, or is it simply just because you got bored?
Overall Score: 27/30
