[1.4.5] Super Mario: Quest for the Gem Shards

Before I say anything about this project, I suppose it goes without saying that my previous project, Super Mario Redemption, is cancelled. The levels were too long and boring and it was just trying too hard, in more ways than one.
Anyway, Super Mario: Quest for the Gem Shards is an episode I've been working on for about a year and a half, and now the first two worlds are done, I thought it was time to release a demo. Those of you who know me through YouTube have probably been waiting for this, and it's here now (well, a demo at least). I've tried to put as much effort as possible into this episode, and I hope you enjoy it.

Quest for the Gem Shards is a much more "standard" episode than my last one. No stars, no Star Coins, no long and non-linear levels, just bite-sized, side-scrolling linear platforming levels, and plenty of them. I've tried to keep all the levels fair in the difficulty department, varied and of a decent length, though I suspect some of them are still on the long side. I've also tried not to stick to cliche level and world ideas (e.g. grass, snow, beach, etc.) and tried to be more imaginative.
There should be about 90 levels once the game is complete, but that won't be for quite some time.
This game doesn't make much use of Teascript; I don't know how to program in it at all, and all scripts are either "default" scripts (i.e. Yoshi's flutter jump) or made by other users. Scripts made by other users are credited in the file "Graphic Credits.txt" in the folder of the level that uses them.
It probably goes without saying that this is a 1.4.5 episode, and it won't work on 1.4.4 or lower or on 2.0.
P.S. If you haven't downloaded 1.4.5 yet and when you do your antivirus thinks it's a Trojan, don't be alarmed. It's safe.

Story
Spoiler: show

Millennia in the past, a mysterious glowing stone was dug up deep beneath the Mushroom Kingdom.

Little did the people know, the stone contained the soul of a powerful evil spirit.

The spirit wrought havoc across the land, bringing chaos and misery wherever it went.

But the spirit was not just on a mindless rampage. It was looking for something...

The Star of Vitality.

This ancient star controls all life in the Mushroom Kingdom.

After using all of its energy to bring life to the land, the star split itself into eight pieces.

If one with a pure heart were to gather all the pieces, an age of prosperity would begin.

But if they fell into the hands of evil, untold suffering would befall the Kingdom.

Before the spirit could gather the shards, the people used them to seal it away.

After banishing the spirit to whence it came, they scattered the shards across the ocean.

The Kingdom was safe.

Until now...

For level-by-level updates on the episode, you can find every level on my YouTube channel here: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=P ... JgLY9Gn0zE
I will upload each level as soon as I finish it.
I've also created a Discord server where you can chat with me about the episode: https://discord.gg/ZU4qRUzPaJ
I'll probably also be posting updates here.

Download
Demo 1 (Worlds 1 and 2): https://www.dropbox.com/s/zjgsd275qrlyl ... 1.rar?dl=0
(This is an old demo; when I released it, the episode was called Super Mario Rainbow. I changed the name to avoid confusion with another episode.)
(To download, click the "..." on the very right side of the screen and click "Download")
Demo 2 (Worlds 1-4) is currently in progress and is relatively close to being ready to release. I can't promise anything, but it should be out by the middle of the year (June-ish sort of time). I know it looks like everything in Worlds 1-4 is done, but I'm currently in the process of redesigning some of my weaker levels from Worlds 1 and 2, which might take a while.

Progress (approximately):
Image
World 1: 9/9 levels complete
World 2: 9/9 levels complete
World 3: 11/11 levels complete
World 4: 11/11 levels complete
World 5: 0/12 levels complete
World 6: 0/10 levels complete
World 7: 0/10 levels complete
World 8: 0/9 levels complete
World 9: 4/9 levels complete

I recommend play the episode. It brings an mix of the classic 2D Mario platforming with an Paper Mario-like plot.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1NaRGfMQpMA&t=95s Could you give us the level so we can download it? If not, then at least the moving train tracks! And the moving blocks! I just want the train tracks and the moving blocks! And Can you reanimate the canyon backgrounds as they move forward?! https://www.mediafire.com/file/5w2vdx7i ... s.zip/file

I'm not the server owner, Lungi is. I went back onto their server and apparently they removed your messages and banned you. I don't understand why you're asking for gfx from the level, but you'll need to be patient as this project has been in development for over a year now.

Let's get back on topic, please. Chimchar800 has been banned, so there's no point in dragging this out any further.

If you guys didn't like the first demo -- You NEED to try the second demo when it comes out. It improves on all major faults that the first demo had from what I've seen so far.
