map notes
My 9th map. Something special that I've been working on for a few days. I don't often use the virtual look, as I feel maps like that unnecessarily riff off the X-Difficult levels. (For me, Initialisation and Finalisation were made because I didn't know much about how to use the proper tilesets to create something nice.) However, this has been made purposefully as both a really difficult level and as a little bit of Dustforce fanon, if one could call it that. You won't understand what I'm saying until you complete the map, though... Have fun.

(Note: The death zones should be fixed now. Forgive me if there are any future obvious mistakes.
Oh, and Tropicallo, thanks for destroying my map again. :P)

Blocks that punish you for heavying a certain direction should not exist.

its a cool and very challenging level, but also almost impossible to SS it with dustkid just because of the small down-heavy range to get the big prism without spreading right before the first destroyable blocks.

Working on it! I actually got a clean run and accidentally supered too soon at the very end. Many tears were shed.

most everything in this level is actually pretty fairly difficult; not too annoying and gimmicky. with a fair bit of practice, i think most of the regulars here (me included) could SS it. so that's good.

the only things i'd remove are the parts where you have to downheavy the prisms to avoid spreading stray dust; just change those to light-attack prisms and everything will be golden.

one more (very minor) thing; i tend to avoid white backgrounds cause they sort of burn on the eyes after a while AND you can't see the clock; maybe try a light grey or a gradient next time? the tile details are very pretty, though. good job on those.

it feels like these walls where your heavys spread dust are put there intentionally... i dont understand man.

This is kind of a blanket reply:

All those walls were put there intentionally. It was to let the player still feel free, but they still had to be highly techinical with how they dealt with the heavies - if they couldn't do that, they always have the option to go for a non-SS run.

Sick run. That 2nd half was nuts haha.

I feel kinda dumb not recognizing there is a lot of freedom in the grey area to do a lot of fancier stuff.

Love it. Only thing that annoyed me has already been commented on a bunch but not only is there a bunch of places you can miss dust but the level actually encourages it which makes for (imo at least) a lot of really unfair SA scores.

SS. Thanks to Marksel (saw it on his replay first, someone else may have discovered it before him though) for showing how to make the blue section easy. I spent far too long trying to figure out how to move so that I could get everything in there, completely forgetting I had a super.
