well it was something really close to it, I must be going nuts.
count me in the next one though, I'll really make some people angry.
For sure. Although I said that the next Kaizo Level Contest would likely be in August, that may no longer be the case since I received a summer job offer that would involve 8 weeks with no Internet connection

I could run one in the summer, but most likely only in July.

You can if you'd like to, but I plan to host another one sometime after I get back

I sent my "Shortened Reviews" and if anything is concerning to you, I went pack to the "Difficulty Score is equal to my deathcount/100 because PixelPest said to remove Deathcount from the reviews, but I only had to review PixlePest's level and Mivixion's level... so I guess I would only tell Mivixion I died X times in his level when the time comes. My highest Death count was 691 and my lowest was 96. Since PixelPest has my reviews, he knows which one is which, but Mivixion will have to guess as well as anyone else.

Edit: I wonder how Glitch4's reviews are going considering we have not heard from him. I also congratulate any one who can proof they can beat my level.

Then why aren't they in my Inbox? Glad to hear that you got them done on time.

That means that all judges had their reviews in on time, which is fantastic, and results will be coming soon!

Results will be delayed, but hopefully not too long. I had to have one judge redo 5 of their reviews since they were total crap

Disqualified Levels + Places 8-4:

DQ. diamantico21 - A level that doesn’t look like a kaizo, hard or simple level
  • Disqualified for reason: Not completable; exit is not reachable.


DQ. RoundPiplup - Colorless Forest with Boiling Oil
  • Disqualified for reason: Not a Kaizo level.


8. Spider - Friends ‘til a Certain Part
Spoiler: show
  • Overall Score: 4/10
  • Overall Difficulty Score: 4/20
    • PixelPest wrote:Score: 2/10

      Well then. Although this level had some okay ideas, it was just a mess and too short. It pulled some stupid tricks on the player such as what appears to be a secret way that kills you when you enter through the door. It wasn’t very challenging and didn’t look very appealing nor was it overly fun to play.
      Mivixion wrote:Score: 5/10
      Difficulty Score: 9/20

      This level had some really fun parts and some really awkward parts. The bullet bill and flying part seemed really weird but I figured out a way to complete it. The rest of the level was pretty fun. There were some random sections that weren't part of the level but for what it was I liked it. My favorite part was the very end. Atmosphere wasn't the best, and some parts of it were really random, but overall I liked it.
      glitch4 wrote:Score: 5/10
      Difficulty Score: 2/20

      A casual kaizo level, which isn't that hard. Not really a fan of floating munchers, the design is sort of meh, and the trap where you enter by destroying the blocks was pointless.
7. Mivixion - Sky Switches FINAL
Spoiler: show
  • Overall Score: 4.53/10
  • Overall Difficulty Score: 4.33/20
PixelPest wrote:Score: 5.6/10
Difficulty Score: 4/20

Although well made and almost completely lacking errors, there really wasn’t much to this level. It was pretty well designed and interesting, but just too short. The SMW elements didn’t really fit which wasn’t a big issue in this case though. It had some tough features, such as spitting a springboard out of Yoshi’s mouth and jumping off of Yoshi’s back and onto the springboard, but all of these features were abandoned after they were used once. The level did have pretty good variety for its short length though and wasn’t bad overall.

A simple short P-Switch run level in one linear section, nothing special.
MECHDRAGON777 wrote:Score: 4/10
Difficulty Score: 1/20

This easy level has not much going for it besides a P-Switch run, and a Lava Spring jump. You do not need to know much to be able to beat this level as well. It looks like a generic grassy plateau that has metal spikes set on top of it (which causes cutoff with the ground) and a lava fountain randomly just being held up by what? There is a lack of coins, where the only NPCs are the enemies and items needed to progress through the level. (Except for a random unneeded Springboard. On the bright side, it is fun and the "SMW Yoshi Athletic" theme is quite good, too bad this is an SMB3 style level.
6. RhysOwens - Spiky Rinka World
Spoiler: show
  • Overall Score: 5.33/10
  • Overall Difficulty Score: 5.67/20
PixelPest wrote:Score: 3/10
Difficulty Score: 2/20

This was not a great Kaizo level. Although it had some interesting ideas there was very little challenge, most of which came from enemy spam, often in the form of Rinkas. This level wasn’t aesthetically pleasing either, with cutoff, blandness, and unfitting block choices (such as wood pillars in the castle). There was also music missing from the boss battle. I did however enjoy playing this level to an extent which is why I gave it such a generous score.
Mivixion wrote:Score: 6/10
Difficulty Score: 10/20

It had its moments. Boss fight was a little sketchy in terms of enemy spam with fireballs and such, and there were definitely some areas with potential Rinka overload. There was also a part you could skip by going over the top. Overall it wasn't bad, but it wasn't great either.
glitch4 wrote:Score: 7/10

Easy level if you know what you're doing. There's lots of gimminicks, which most of them are creative here. There's a boss battle with spikes coming out from the ceiling, which is not bad.
5. Akyuu - Pink Castle of Despair
Spoiler: show
  • Overall Score: 5.37/10
  • Overall Difficulty Score: 9/20
  • Lost one (1) point for reason: Didn’t end in SMB3 star.
PixelPest wrote:Score: 7.1/10
Difficulty Score: 6/20

This was quite a good level. It had some very clever ideas and challenges and was really enjoyable to play. There were some spots, such has with the Koopa spam, that really took away from my enjoyment of the level. Some areas were also a bit bland, but overall this level was quite well designed.
Mivixion wrote:Score: 8/10

I loved the gameplay here. Lots of traditional platforming with fun twists. A few parts were frustrating. Sadly it didn't end in an SMB3 star. Challenges were fun, especially the autoscroll room.
glitch4 wrote:Score: 4/10
Difficulty Score: 16/20

Meh level. Jumping over everything method in most parts, especally over the munchers isn't the best idea to do, since it can be annoying. The only thing I liked here is jumping on the platform then on npc pipe to move the progress.
4. MECHDRAGON777 - 破壊と混沌の放射線虐殺 (Radiation Massacre of Destruction and Chaos)

  • Overall Score: 7.57/10

PixelPest wrote:Score: 7.2/10
Difficulty Score: 17/20

This was a good level. Although it seemed a little bit too busy and cluttered at times, it had a good atmosphere and used some neat concepts. A bunch of glitches were used in this level and other things as well made it intriguing and fun. The boss battle at the end was very innovative, but overall the level was pretty short and a bit disappointing because a lot more could have been done with each of the gimmicks and characters explored throughout the level
Mivixion wrote:Score: 7.5/10
Difficulty Score: 18/20 (20/20 would have been requiring the spingrab chain during the boss fight)

Oh boy, where do I start? This level was fun for what I actually got to play of it. I had to mess around with my settings and stuff (since I played it on my laptop on a day trip) and it lagged out my computer multiple times. I played it with frameskip disabled so it was in super slow motion. With that in mind, this was probably (even without the lag) the hardest level. I wasn't the biggest fan of the execution for some of the tricks. What I really liked (and this is the only part of the level that ran at a somewhat normal speed) was the boss. Very fun concept and it worked well too. I actually tested it out and you can do a really funky spin-grab chain and avoid using the clock for a decent period of time but that's pointless and just me being a kaizo nerd.
glitch4 wrote:Score: 8/10

A pretty good level. The radiation api isn't necessary, since you have to drain your time until it's empty again. The stopwatch gimmick and boss battle was pretty neat tho.
There you have it! Top three will be coming tomorrow, which are, in no particular order: SnoruntPyro, Nerx, and myself
