map notes
Here's every map backwards!

These maps are meant to be carbon copies of the originals; with a few exceptions, only beginnings and ends are swapped. The purpose of every map is not playability, but rather to sate the curiosity of how an exact replica of a map is played backwards. Therefore, some will be boring, some turn into a puzzling challenge, some may be impossible, and some just turn out to be very fun!

To play: copy the dustforce:// link into your browser

Are all the links hidden properly? They're broken for me, with the exception of the ones that were on the front page.

whoops, let me fix that

But they don't appear on your profile and have their pages like the other published maps?
I understood that they just don't appear in the "Most recent" category. (because they are named "backward").

lifeformed didn't seem to have gotten to making that change, so I just hid them manually (via 'delete' button). But turns out other people can't see the hidden maps, so I have to link to the dustforce links (which I now have to figure out a way to hotlink, manual copy-pasting the links for now :)

Oh ok, I prefered that all levels were visible but it's a good solution to avoid to congesting Atlas. Good job!
For the hotlink you can use this http://www.reddit.com/r/dustforce/comments/1psnes/_/ and change the final number. But it doesn't download automatically the map in the correct folder.

I'm trying to find a way to hotlink a dustforce:// link, but it appears markdown on atlas only hotlinks http links; the [text](url) doesn't work, as it doesn't recognize dustforce:// as a url. (I also tried to workaround with [text](http://dustforce://link), but markdown stripped the colon from dustforce://)

hopefully the downloads won't have to be manual :(

I actually had a lot of fun with this backwards level.

I got the first crash I've ever seen in dustforce on the backwards tutorial.
That said this idea is pretty cool.

Also, why are you missing so many maps? Fields, Shaded Grove, Tunnels, Alcoves, Mezzanine, Secret Passage, Abandoned Carpark, Landfill, Vacant Lot, Development, Control, Ferrofluid, Satellite Debris, and Titan are all missing! I'm really enjoying these, just wish there were more. :)

I made these before Dustforce DX, so the maps from the expansion are missing. I've mainly stopped playing Dustforce, so I have no plans of adding in any of the new maps backwards. Glad you're enjoying them though!
