From the second screenshot, it looks like you didn't use any proper ending tiles for the ground, it kinda just cuts off. Also, I would try using consistent textures (if you are going to use smb3 goombas use only smb3 goombas, the smb1 goombas don't really fit alongside them.) The same thing applies with the koopas but mostly for a different reason which is that SMW koopas and SMB1 koopas function differently, they aren't just skins of the same enemy. If you can use that as some gimmick for a level that would be cool but from what I can tell everything is mix-matched because you just wanted to add a bunch of different enemies for the sake of having a bunch of different looking enemies. I used to do the same thing as did a lot of people so I don't really blame you but consider sticking to a theme for each level.

I don't think I added SMW koopas in this level, and I'm sorry about the mixing styles, I just don't wanna overuse the SMB3 sprites like everyone else does. As for the ending tiles, I don't know how to make it look "proper". I just put what I could.

Oh. Never mind about the Koopa thing.

Well, I didn't put those because I kinda rushed the level and I wanted to get it over quick.

That doesn't sound like a very promising statement when looking at an entire episode. Are all other levels also going to get rushed? What about the episode as a whole? If you already got bored by the first level, how many do you think you will finish before abandoning the project? It might be better to focus on standalone levels, so that every level even when rushed will truly be part of a complete package once finished.

By the way, what was the driving factor behind choosing 1-1 to remake instead of any other level, or making a level from your own ideas? It strikes me as somewhat odd to proclaim to be making an episode, only having a remake of a level remade an infinite amount of times in the past, and then getting bored of it halfway through development. I'm not meaning to ridicule the choice, I'm mainly thinking that perhaps the reason for rushing may have been that the concept of remaking levels isn't all too appealing to you? If that's the case I totally understand, since there isn't much creative drive within a slightly altered remake so it feels like just needless self-limitation. Try to be inspired by what you find in the engine, even if the result ends up disjointed. For example, one thing I used to do a lot a long time ago was fit entire episode plots into a single level. With multiple checkpoints that can be a really neat way to quickly tell a story you want to tell without committing to monthlong projects.
Ideas are useless if you can't make them real.

"Patience you must have, my young padawan."

-Obviously yoda who else talks like that


If you want to make a good level then you need to put time in it, even the easiest level in a game should take patience to build.

So you posted three screens of the First rushed Level you did, and after people commented on it you don’t even give them any response but suddenly say you don’t work on this anymore?

Please tell us, that there is a different reason for the end of this besides my message.
