This was my favorite level. Intuitive, interesting challenges and definitely not too easy or too hard. You had to think fast and come up with plans for many of the challenges and it was super fun. I loved this level. Very modern-styled kaizo (more on the SMM side of the spectrum than the SMW hacking side).

A casual kaizo-type level. It's really short, idk why don't you extend it more, the boss battle, hovewer, was p. neat.

Okay, this SMW castle is quite fun, and the entrance with the Rainbow Shell where you have to hold "Run" until you bounce, then half hold Jump and right to land on Yoshi, turn to the left 1 frame later, and hit "Run" again to eat the shell before you and Yoshi get smacked in the head with a Kamikaze Shell or fall in the lava (on or off Yoshi) was quite exhilarating and this is the are (Sektor 1) that used the red spikes (which I can not tell is lua or not) quite nicely. I also question why you did not do this throughout the entire thing? The music is Vanilla and the tileset is a darker variant of the vanilla tileset, but I will say the boss is quite nice—although the cheep kill when you enter the room is not a good way to start a boss, even in Kaizo levels. This level is truly exhilarating and I can say that this is the best level I played in the contest; however, the secret star seems out of place with the level. What is the point of putting it there (since it does not offer that much more of a challenge than the actual level, it is easier than the rest of the level actually).
2. SnoruntPyro - SPINJUMP ON EVERYTHING

Although not overly visually appealing, this level had a really unique gimmick that was twisted and pulled in a variety of ways to make the level intriguing and fun. The last part of the level seemed a little bit rushed though. It was very enjoyable and clever.

This level had some cool funky Lua stuff going on, which made it more interesting. It felt really long and took quite a while to beat. It was definitely one of the more fun levels but it went on maybe just a little too long. The atmosphere was decent and the challenge was definitely there. I also tested it in a non-lua environment and that really shed light on exactly how much Lua this level relies on. Super fun.

Really tricky level, but at least it's fair. The length is short and there's lots of good gimmicks with spinjumping.

This was a great level even though it was relatively short; definitely my favourite. It played like a classic SMW Kaizo level and had a really nice atmosphere even though the music file was missing. It was nice that the concept and graphics were rather simple compared to other levels, so it seemed very enjoyable and not as much of a task as other Kaizo levels were.

Oh man this one was tough. Lots of crazy platform action that reminds me of the original Kaizo Mario World. Atmosphere was good, challenges were fun and insane (I'd put the checkpoint a little later personally), and overall the level was a blast. I will say it was a little repetitive but considering you managed to stick to the theme throughout that's fine by me.

The level looks inspired by smw kaizo hacks, which is not bad. The kaizo methods are neat tho.
Congratulations to Nerx! Came out just on top by 0.14 points. Great job to all and the contest episode should come out soon. For now, that's all folks!

Did any of the other judges have problems with the music? I mean I can convert it to mp3 and it should work better but I tested this with LunaLua and it worked fine.

Mechdragon has the best reviews in this. I want him as lj and as judge for more contests.

I was denied as a level judge for "having to short of reviews" and PixelPest made me shorten my actual reviews.

I seemed that everybody including me sucked at difficulty.
And OOPS! I renamed my boss theme but didn't rename it in the level, that why you guys said it was missing.
And I've just posted my level with the music fixed on the Levels board.

I just tested the zip out and the music works fine for me. I'll go convert it to mp3.

EDIT: Is a wav file ok or do you want an mp3? I can't seem to get conversion to work right now

.wav is perfectly fine. Please make sure that you just send me the music file

That's why I've got a fixed version with the custom music for the contest and for others to play on the Levels board.

That means you need LunaLua to play the level with the ogg music.
