I've been catching up with some of the courses you guys have uploaded recently - there's some top stuff there, but I just wanted to say how much I enjoyed some of Squinty's, especially the Spikers and ! block courses. :wub:

Also, SMW is the best style. SMW is ugly :lol:

Just grabbed this. The fact Nintendo have managed to stuff a fool game design course into a game aimed at everyone from kids to adults is amazing.

So then... What's the best GR course so far? :shifty:

Cheers! I had an idea last night where I was thinking I could add rhythm blocks into a stage with Spiker blocks, creating all sorts of wall jumpy things. I might give that a go.

I took the time to explore as many interesting ideas using the night mode effect here, also while keeping the core theme of progression (albeit using different elements) a constant throughout. Pink coins are entirely optional, but recommended for anyone who will appreciate the extra challenge.


Can’t believe im still the only one to finish it in 30 mins :slol: I know I can do quicker with all coins but its that last bit

That's the section I tweaked the most, having to cancel the clear-check numerous times. There was only so far I was willing to compromise in terms of difficulty, however.

I'm afraid speedruns aren't up my street but I'll certainly keep an eye out for the others!

I've started on a winter themed level myself, although I'm unsure where exactly I wish to take it; slopes are a must and overall I want it to be rather basic, but I am at a bit of a loss in regards to progression right now.

strawberry float me building levels is hard. Tried some GR levels and was amazed at the quality. I'm trying to make a super simple jumping/on button course and it's killing me.

Played a bunch more of the GR levels last night, some real gems in there!

Had my first go at making a course with the Switch docked... yeah I won't be doing that again! :lol: It's so much clunkier compared to using the touchscreen.

Started work on a couple of courses - a Ghost house and a sand one, actually feeling more positive about the prospects of these compared to the last bunch which I've got so far with and then abandoned!

I’ve taken a break from user created levels as had all 4 of my wisdom teeth on Saturday and didn’t want to put my jaw through the grimacing that inevitably occurs.

I’m feeling a bit better today though and have a huge queue of levels so will get through some of these tonight

On and Off switches are a game changer. You can do some much with them, but they are really hard to right.

So how you guys go about designing a level? Is it something you get an idea of beforehand, or do you jump in with a rough concept of what you want to make and go from there? I think it's always interesting to hear how different people approach level design. A big problem I seem to face is deviating from the original idea and ending up making something completely different. Sometimes it's too late to start over since you've gone so far into creating the level ">,>

The most common piece of advice I've seen around is choose a mechanic and build a level around it. On/Off block, grabber, snake block etc

Choosing a mechanic and implementing it one way isn't even half the battle; iterating upon and escalating them to a satisfying climax is the most difficult part.

And it's for that reason Iv'e went back to the drawing board with my latest creation. strawberry floating hard indeed.
