Speedtraps and blind drops a good map do NOT make.

I know , I had some camera issues and stuff.. I apologize for the inconvenience but it was my first level ... I'll try to improve future levels !

Once I figured out wtf I was doing it was ok. Only thing I didn't like was that you didn't add the flag at the end to the finish flag, had to rerun it a few times to figure out what I was missing.

Ah yeah it can be kind of finicky. The level itself though is pretty fun, so don't worry about it. :)

I really like the abstract visuals used like skyscrapers in the clouds and other things, but the gameplay was just awful. Blind drops are to be expected when one doesnt know how to use cameras so I wont bag on you for that but at the end you need to put all the entities in the ending flag. Because of the colors its very easy to miss and blends right in. Perhaps try to keep your levels a little tighter than this in the future as it will help a lot with getting the right camera size.

Just send the file in your level_src folder through email or an upload site.

i agree with the other criticisms that have been posted earlier, especially what Towelie said about keeping the level "tighter." don't space everything out so ridiculously.

one thing that hasn't been mentioned is that the background is not a good color. most of the entities do not resolve well against that greenish yellow. couple that with the rapidly zooming camera and it's difficult to keep track of stuff on screen.

Great first level!  Just make sure there's enough contrast with the background and foreground.  My character got lost on those background buildings sometimes.
