map notes
Inspired by Doughnation's map "Polar" ( http://atlas.dustforce.com/1645/polar ).

I done this map many months ago but it never convinced me at all. It was to be intended more long but today I decided to publish it since I was tired to see it ahah.
I made little changes...it kinda feels unfinished to me but I think it plays quite well.

Hope you enjoy!

Short and fun, doesn't seem unfinished to me.  Short maps are fine and people try harder to optimize them.  I think it feels a little lonely and empty though.  I think I just can't properly grasp minimalism.  All my minimalism is too complex, oxymorontastic.

I find it incredible how you can turn even a compliment into a bad thing.

I think the empty/minimalistic look goes very nicely with this map.

Really cool. I thought the spacing was a bit awkward at some points but that's probably just me.

Same. I know there's some sort of trick to it, but I personally couldn't make it work.

The awkward spacing at the end was intended, the map was too easy to approach.
For the ceiling part in the middle of the map, after the zetta slope, the sequenze of input tom maintain the speed is:
- dash when you left the ceiling of the zetta slope;
- light attack;
- dash before the other ceiling;

Let me know if there are other parts, they were not intended to be awkward.

I didn't have any issues with that part (although doing it fast is challenging). I just would have shifted a few platforms/slopes by a tile or so to make it more comfortable. I'm just nitpicking though, it's great overall.
