Can I attach a go kart to a cat bell?

Now that the Round 2 levels are out there for your all to rank, here is something to start thinking about!

Round 3 Guidelines
Image

As he looked up into the face of his enemy only one thought was going through his mind - "not this time". Too much destruction had been caused by this point to even contemplate turning back, too many Toads lost to their onslaught, too many Yoshi's sacrificed to keep one step ahead of their unstoppable chase. He saw the muzzle flash and steeled himself for one final push, allowing himself a wry smile as his mind focused once more on victory. They say that somewhere out there is a bullet with everyone's name on it "well," he thought "it's not going to be this one..."

Excuse the interruption from my Mario fan-fic there... Round 3 is all about Bullet Bill Levels! A long time menace of Mario and his pals I want to see your levels making extensive use of these pesky projectiles. Whether it's having Mario partake in a bout of bullet bouncing, running the gauntlet through waves of bullet obstacles, facing down the threat of the giant or heatseeking variants or otherwise exploring how these enemies can be used to enable exploration or interact with their environment, I want to see those bullets fly!

There are no specific item or theme restrictions (yes you can even use the Koopa Car if you really want to!) but the key is that your levels must make clear use of one or more varieties of bullet bill enemies - they should make up the main challenge of the level and it shouldn't be possible to get through it without encountering them in some way.


Submission deadline is 8pm Sunday 7th of March - send your level name and code to me via PM.
- Do not post the level in the thread or otherwise share it with anyone beforehand.

Ah excellent, I'm really curious about skips in my level! I'm aware of some (probs not all!) skips and I'm hoping some of them might be interesting options for shaving off a few fractions of a second!

Hmm... Bullet Bill... I'll have to see what I can do. I've got an idea or two I can try out.

Scores submitted. Was a lot tighter than last time. I just wanted to say to everyone that it was very close and I enjoyed all your levels.

I would say onto speed runs now however, I think these levels have proved my weakness is wall jumping

I find you just have to be true to the inner fan within yourself, it's nice to have an outlet for these things! :slol:

Had a quick bash at some of the levels again tonight and claimed a few records. Lots of scope for improvement in them still though!

Already made headway on my round 3 level. Going for something brave but not sure if i can pull it off yet.

I've just been playing with bullet bills mechanically but not actually figured out what I want to do yet. Other than Return to Banzai Pass but I don't think Jen would appreciate it!

See now the guidelines clearly state that Bill should be your enemy, not a power up.

Although in many ways the bullet mask was the enemy in Banzai Pass! :lol:



But yeah in all seriousness there's nothing stopping you using the Bullet Mask, just as long as you make use of enemy Bullet Bill's as well!

I got my votes in already this week. Really, really good set of levels. I enjoyed all of them even if I did get frustrated with one or two.
