It was pretty great for a first level and glad that you did some things that weren't possible in 1.3.0.1. I especially love the visuals and those goombas that behave like nipper plants that you can jump on (though you can't kill them with a spin jump). Only real criticisms are that their seem to be no power-ups in the level, some of the thwomp placement could be better especially with the one after the mid-point where you feel like you have to take a hit because not only do you have to trigger it to fall by jumping towards it but hope you manage to spin jump off of it after it falls so that you don't land on the spikes, and finally the second half felt kind of short.

TheTrueMarioMaster: Glad to hear your opinion. Actually theres reason why there was no powerups:
As you can see, i disabled the rendering of hud. But that doesn't mean that itembox won't work. So if there was an mushroom for example, and you were in super state, then it could get buggy, since you could get an item from itembox.
About thwomp placement i could agree with you. And im sorry that the second half felt short, since this level is suppose to be released in August, so i had to make the level as fast as i can.

This was an amazing level in atmosphere and feel. The level was fun to play, the only thing I didn't like was quicksand but it was a short and fun level

In smbx 2.0 you can disable the use of the HUD by using the local_inputs API and disable the select key. Just a little tip there though.

You must have played Braid recently. Almost everything in this level screams it.
Look at all this empty space.

Interesting concept for a level by being able to gain the abilities of the enemies you jump on. Only problems I had with the level were how the sound effect for jumping on the enemies seemed really loud compared to everything else and how it's each to get stuck if you mess up a ninji jump to a higher platform.

So you plan to make your own episode sometime in the future. Will it be your first episode?

I feel like Spacedust Valley misses the point of why the gimmick worked and was fun in Super Mario Galaxy.

When you played galaxy, you had a nunchuck and a wiimote.
With the nunchuck, you had a hand you could do directional movement.
With the wiimote you could both do motion control gimmicks such as pulling to stars and different sorts of jumps. The thing is with this you could do it right after each other in quick succession.

In SMBX, I have my right hand using the arrow keys and my left hand using jump/techs.
Each time I have to pull a star I have to move my right hand to the mouse/mousepad and back after I pull it, which is not fun. It doesn't flow naturally.
Or I have to use my left hand for directional movement and my right hand for the mouse only, which is not fun. I don't have access to my jump or run key for the majority of the time.
Or I have to use my left hand for all my movement and jump/techs and use my right hand for the mouse only, which is not fun. I have to learn an entirely new control scheme that is not intuitive.
Or you have to constantly try to switch between a controller and mouse, which is not fun. It still doesn't flow naturally.

This gimmick is a decent gimmick, but the level is not fun at all due to how it is executed.

For the 3rd point, my controls are currently
Up: Q
Left: A
Right: D
Down: Not Set
Alt Jump: Space
Jump: E
Run: W
Alt Run: Not Set

This control scheme is literally awful to play with but one of the only ways that the level can flow naturally.

A possible solution to help fix it is: Doing something such as using alt run to do the pull effect and use drop item/pause or arrow keys to select which one you can pull to would probably work mechanically better than what you have the level require currently.
