map notes
This map was originally made for the Custom Map Race but wasn't approved.
You'll probably get the best results with Dustman/Dustgirl. Have fun!

Since this is the first disapproved CMR map to be uploaded, I'd also like to know how people think about this. The reason for disapproval is due to the (in my opinion) high difficulty which I do not think would fit in Custom Map Races. Since the whole approval process is kinda new, we're still kinda trying to get a good feel of what people accept difficulty wise.

Aside from that, I still do like this map, even when played as Dustkid.

It definitely would've made the race longer at least.

"medium difficulty"???!
Superkid
said Dec 9, 2013
After uploading it took me about 2-3 minutes to SS it so I felt bad about the medium-hard tag :x

It looks harder than it really is, once you figure out what strats actually work it's not that bad.

Actually the beginning isn't too bad once you figure out a good method for it.

Even for me the map is very difficult. Probably too much for a CMR.
Anyway nice map, I enjoyed the challenge (except the first drop).

Medium to hard difficulty??!!!
:P

When I first played this, I wasn't even coming close to finishing the first part. Suddenly, for some reason, I got it about 3 or 4 times in a row.. and began to fail it repeatedly once more. Is there a specific trick to it? Right now, it just feels like a bit of a gamble to me.

Two -full- jumps before the first prism then just swift back and forth movements while light attacking the prisms.  Not sure how else I can describe it to make it easier to understand sadly. As long as you're high enough you should be able to avoid the spikes fairly easily this way.

I had the same problem, but I found a good method.  Watch my replay.  Basically: get the first one, then hit the next two in quick succession, while holding left after hitting the next one, in order to put close to the middle.  Then fall down a bit, then repeat.  It should be like:
Bam.  BamBam!  BamBam! BamBam!

After the initial back and forth climbing section, I found the back-and-forth ceilings to be frustratingly inconsistent. Otherwise, hard but good map.

EDIT: And I just realized what the easier way to do it was. Blegh. Should've just watched replays before getting my SS.

That beginning part is just absolute hell, my run is the only time I've ever gotten past it.

Yeah, after like 100 restarts I hate this level. You should have only made it like 4 tiers rather than 8. Really takes the fun out of a level if you can't get past the first part.

wait really? i actually didn't find it that bad. (the same can't be said for the rest of the level.) and you're infinity times better than me.

said Dec 14, 2013
to be perfectly honest that is the only part that gave me trouble, everything else was super easy and could be done in two tries or less.
