The thumbnail is... very dark, and impossible to distinguish foreground from background.  I opened the map and prayed, but the map is just as dark.  At least the parallax makes it a little easier to tell, but the problem is still there.  My advice is that you always try to make a large brightness shift between the collision and background... preferably making the BG the darker of the two.  A color shift helps as well, like maybe the BG is darker but also bluer.  There are other problems I think some testing would've ironed out... like the turkey between the two ceiling runs.  That placement makes the player want to up-heavy it, but you didn't put any spikes on the terrain up there so it spreads dust and is very bad.  Most reasonable options don't work, so I have to airjump and then backward down-heavy it to avoid spreading dust... pretty awkward but it works.  I am just curious if that was your intent?

You can just up light it three times no problem. Still pretty quick.

um i agree, it was quite a rush job, I was just having fun with it and wanted to show my friends, still a bit clunky with all the settings in the level editor sorry but I think you are 110% right about it being dark. I tested the map a whole bunch of times but I wasn't aware it made it difficult for players, it felt norm to mean but I never did try ( or thought to) use that technique described. I'm sorry you didn't enjoy it as much as I hoped but maybe next time! Thanks for the advice fella and thanks for at least giving it a go =]

I dunno. Shin pretty much hit everything. Just the darkness and that turkey, but even that turkey isn't that big of a deal.

Enjoyed the map a ton :P, was a pain in the ass to learn because of being dark, but still gave it a 4

Something else i want to point out (because i used to do the exact same thing, you can ask EklipZ) is when you're downdashing, you spam dashes, this actually will get you worse boosts and ruin your boosts because the timing is important of when you dash, dash as you hit the ground only, all the excess dashes do nothing :P

I'm glad you enjoyed the map fella, and thanks for the rating. Also thanks for the advice, seems like I have a lot to learn ^^

I'll mention that large enemies like bears, if you don't give them movement, won't turn to hit you if you don't hit them.

so they stay completely passive if they don't move, unless you aggro them? I did not know, im sorry mate

no they aggro you automatically if you move into their "field of vision" aka "the half of their body that has eyes"

they won't turn to face you if they aren't already moving, though.

It's not bad. Certain parts could be made more "flowy".

Abit too dark. Take note that brightness depends on screen settings too. So If your monitor is especially bright, ask someone with a dim one to test it for you, or tune your settings.

Take note of the area surrounding a turkey. For example, the first turkey can sometimes splash onto the ledge with a forward straight heavy making it annoying.

Yeah I agree 100%, there are a million and one things to make it better. Thanks for the advice and thanks for giving it a go =]
