I love this map: everything was far enough that you had to optimize your route, it gave me a reason to figure out the mapler slide(even though it is not mandatory for this map).
Thanks!

About the art: last screen is really beautiful.

I like the turkey slapping gameplay. In terms of graphics, I don't like platforms that appear to be floating in front of a parallax background (neither do the Hitbox designers). The end scene looks cool; nice use of the elliptical background light thing.

For gameplay, I really like the mix of enemy placement and the brevity of the level, feels like some of the better floating platform / air control maps not unlike a Towelie map.

   As for the art, I can't help but agree with videohead about floating platforms.  There's nothing connecting anything on layers 12-17 so it looks really off.  The final room gets a lot of praise but it has more stuff than necessary IMO... but hey, maybe I'm just a hater.  I think using fewer props in creative ways that focus attention is way better than just throwing all the props at the problem:  http://atlas.dustforce.com/4692/treasure-island

That is an absolute clusterfuck of props, but they are all used purposefully and effectively so it still looks amazing.

Yeah like in the final room here in Axolotl a lot of the props aren't rotated or mirrored at all, so they all look identical to eachother (like the bushes in the bottom left) which makes it look like prop spam.
