map notes
So I experimented a bit more with that wall climb oddity.

Maybe I took it a bit too far.

(edit, morning of May 5)
FUNFAX about "zippers" (which I guess I'm calling them now, thanks to Axon)

- Dashing inside a zipper will warp you through the wall (as Matt mentioned below, you're going inside a solid tile and there's no collision inside them)
- Zippers 17 blocks or higher will warp the character through walls when they end
- Zippers only work for up to 25 blocks. After that - yeah, warp.
- Chains of 16 block zippers with 1 block gaps between them can go on as long as you like.

I'm not entirely sure why but I had more fun than I should have while attempting to speed run this level. I can't stop playing it.

For anyone curious about why this works:
There's a heap of different tile types to cover different shapes: solid tiles, 45 degrees, -45, half the slope of 45 etc. The ones that are half of 45 take up two blocks and if you remove half of it it actualy has no edge in between them.
So you jump up and don't hit your head because there's no bottom edge on that half of the tile, and the edges are all directional, so when you get high enough it registers a hit on the ground and pulls you out of the ground, which makes you high enough to register touching the ground on the next one up, and so on...
There shouldn't be any limit on it, but if you have horizontal momentum you will go through the wall to the right because once you're inside the solid area there's no solid edge between solid tiles, only outer edges.

Man, these are a grand pain to make, wish there was a copy+paste function. Awesome find!

Sweet.  There's other cool combinations of illegal tiles that do interesting things.  One way doors, horizontal boosters, etc.  Try to find them all!  We only know of a few.
