map notes
This map is about dashing from walls.

Probably about as hard as Night Temple.

This is just about the most confused I've ever been by a map.  Basically the entirely time I'm just going "wot?"  I don't know if it that was your intention.  Puzzle maps are cool though.

Yeah, 'puzzle map' is probably the right phrase.  I come from a puzzle game background (also making them), so it's inevitably going to leak into my maps.

It's very rare these days for my assumptions about how maps worked to be so challenged. Nice job

The best replays are the ones where you see someone going, 'okay, that looks easy', tries a section, fails horribly, then just stands at the checkpoint for a while thinking.

More, please. Specially the first section, it was great to think a bit differently.
The game has a huge range of actions that changes completely the outcome of the jump. Beware though, since it has too many hidden ways of jumping further, higher, recovering air charge... it can be quite frustrating when you find people aren't playing the intended way. That could be sad, but I always find that maps with narrow paths to avoid it aren't satisfying to play.
Also, please put the end flag on a platform. I don't want to fall forever.

Yeah, I don't really mind your route with the heavies behind the walls and the air dash-jump, because it's much harder and looks great.  There's always going to be a compromise between making it harder and allowing unintended strategies, and I prefer the latter (at least as long as I'm bad at the game - I want to be able to SS my own maps!).

And pfft, obviously you're supposed to end it the way 'goodbye Anand' did.
