Lava confirmed!  I will say that while I am biased and a fan of lava, your choice of darkness on layer 19 and spike and dust choices make it basically impossible to see.  The red virtual spikes and green slime dust would both show up better, even if they clash.  The dark purple cave spikes and grey mansion dust are just both too bad on the rocks, and I was basically playing blind.  I often prioritize art too, but I try not to do so at the cost of playability.  This map is going to be hell for people who haven't played these stock maps before and don't have dust/spikes memorized.  It's just so hard to read.

(It did not lag for me nor drop my inputs)

I can't play the level without fitting music:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HkLHwDooikI

I don't know why, but there seem to be players who "Can't see shit" on certain maps.
I had no problems with the visibility at all (except what karelian mentioned), we may have different screen settings ?

This reminds me of the another problem, the first 2 specs of dust are easy to miss if you're using dustkid because you can easily go high enough that the camera never puts them into view.

Yeah, the second patch of dust is particularly hard to see, but the map lacks some visibility overall as well, if I hadn't played these maps before I would have some trouble finding some of the dust and spikes, you should probably make the dust layer a little bit darker next time and try to not cover dust with too much gloom.

Kilo + clocktower? I dislike the combo in particular, but still recognize it as a good map.

Could be a very fun map. Unfortunately my ancient piece of junk computer can't handle it so it's unplayable for me :((

One slight criticism: the second piece of dust at the start is very hard to see. Wouldn't have notice it if I didn't know Kilo.

I see, kind of agree with that

I missed it 2 times, despite grinding kilo for like half an hour 2 days ago.

I don't know if it's Kilo itself, or it is just you that can make every map great in a vulcano-look. Very well done!

Beautiful, this should go to top 10 rated maps or something lovely!

Such kind words ^^.
But I think 5/5 are a little too much, since it's not really my own map.
I'm absolutely fine with 4/5

Very nice visuals, probably the best attempt at lava I've seen so far.

Using Kilo and Clocktower for the level design itself feels a bit cheap to be honest, but at least you didn't completely copy it (mirrored Kilo and slight changes overall). Still very fun map to play.

Yeah, I'm also not 100% comfortable with the whole remake-thing.

There is a piece of missing spikes midway through the level that isn't obvious above the line of 4 small prisms.  Also, the checkpoints are slightly in air, and the ones where you would head left are still facing right, making restarting from checkpoints a tad of a hassle.

Edit, also my nemesis, the kilo block, has returned.

How do you control the direction of checkpoints ?

Mouse Button 4

You flip entities with mouse button 4 while placing them.  Not a good button mapping at all, but it is what it is.

Ah, I see.
Thanks fireball/Furkie.

This map looks amazing! I love the lava effect.

Also at last a way to practise the clocktower climb.

It was surprisingly easy to mirror my kilo strats... too bad I suck at clocktower.

Clocktower ruined it for me, two seperate maps woulda been awesome as it gets, but back to back i didn't like them that much, however thats a "me" problem so 4/5 anyways

As an aside, maybe this map should have the tag "long".  That is used fairly often and it helps player search for maps like this one.

Must be because I'm bad, but that last drop... I had so much trouble getting around the spikes.

Wow, I love this!  Kilo and clock tower are two of my favorites.  Nice work!
