So it's probably predictable because it'a October, but this was also a requested idea for a contest. I hope many will be interested
Standard Level Contest Rules
Don't put your name in any of the files
Don't post any screenshots of the level nor a download link in the comments
You must submit your level before the deadline.
You may only submit one level, if you send two levels the second will be disqualified.
No joke levels, joke levels will not be judged.
Give your level a unique name. Nothing random or funky though.
Any level theme accepted (forest, ice, mountain, lava, etc)
Level can end in any fashion.
Custom Graphics are allowed
Custom Music is optional
Adding a boss is optional
LUNADLL/LUNALUA Not Allowed (If this causes option 2 to be impossible, then I may change this rule)
Additional Rules For This Theme
One Option or Both Must Be Used:
1. (Easy Option) A haunted theme that's found all throughout various Mario games.
Any other ideas you think of that aren't on here? PM me so I can add it to the list.
2. (Hard Option) Create a level that is actually scary, brings on suspense, really keeps people on their toes and paranoid, etc. I understand this is a mario game, so this clearly easier said than done. This is obviously going to be graded more critically in regards to whether it works as scary, and if done well will give creators a slight edge as compared to those who went with just option 1. I don't expect any of the levels to cause people to wet their pants or start screaming, but anything that brings some kind of freaky vibe to it will do justice to me. Of course those doing this option can do option 1 as well.

Contestants (COMPLETED ARE BOLDED AND UNDERLINED):
You'll find a lot of graphics in the traditional smbx graphics packs, but I also know TheKingOfBoos also has a nice graphics pack that could work with this.
Like always, PM levels to me and the levels will be distributed to the judges once the deadline strikes.
Feel free to post below or PM with your interests in this contest. I expect there will be questions too because I sometimes can't explain things correctly.
Best of luck to all!
