map notes
Just a quick tutorial level I threw together spur of the moment. It contains quite a few if not all of the difficult "strats" needed to complete certain levels. I made this to help players practice and maybe even discover these useful techniques for later use. If I left out an important one, please let me know (other than dash-jumping and spike-jumping). Have fun!

Woah, as someone who mainly uses Dustkid, I learned a lot from this!

I also like this map is still SS'able despite the use of deathbox checkpoints (and that it's not really the aim of this map, but neither is Tutorial so yeah).

I was able to cheese the backwards swipes with dash jumping, but other than that I really liked this.  Felt good to be able to get to the end. ^_^

Why would you cheese with a method that's harder to execute than the intended?

I didn't know that dash jumping was harder.  I can't get the timing down for the backward swipe, so I dash jump.  I know how to do a dash jump reliably.

Well this is a practice map you know.

Oh I know.  Suppose I should have said I have trouble doing to the backward swipe, more so than the dash jump.

Though I was practicing the backward swipe and am now able to do it consistently.  Thanks for making this. :D

I'm really bad at backward swipes so I dash jumped instead. xD Guess I'll just use this to practice those backward swipes though.

Very nice map. Always wanted for someone to create this kind of level. Only thing I would change is highlight specific spots where you should perform the dashes/jumps with a different color.

Really helpful! Sad to think I didn't know some of these tricks even after 200 hours of dustforcing haha.
