Hey dude, that's nice to see. I found a couple issues, mostly during the gameplay portion :

(Picture 1, left > right / up > down) The room name hides the ground we walk on. It may not be of a huge inconvenience here, but it definitely can be problematic in others situations.
Unless it is part of the level design, I would suggest trying to avoid it, when realistically possible.

(Pic 2) There is a unfilled hole at the bottom-left corner.

(Pic 3) This script repeats. In 99% of such cases, this wastes the player's time when he retriggers it, while not making a lot of sense either (The other 1% are for intentional design choices).
While this issue can be "dodged" if you make sure the player never crosses them ever again (Like in a one way, linear level or section where the player is not expected to go backwards), this one is guaranteed to be triggered more than once, statistically.
I saw that you used flags, that's very nice to see. There is a way to fix this issue by using them. The technique is called a "load script" :

create a script called "story" containing story elements that you want the player to trigger and see.
Inside "story", write this :

ifflag(x,stop)
iftrinkets(0,loadascript)

It's important to know that there should be absolutely nothing inside the script named "stop". Inside the one named "loadascript", there should be the story, but make sure that the flag x is activated.

By using this technique, you can make cutscenes stop repeating themselves, such as this one.

(Pic 4 - 5 - 6 - 7 - 8 - 9) The rooms labelled "Short run", "...again", and "Entrance With No Maze" (4, 5 and 6) have a lot of collision errors, and missing transitions.
Between 4 and 5, the player is instantly thrown at the action without much warning. He can also get inside the wall in 4, if he ever goes back for one second.
Between 5 and 6, it's the same deal. You are supposed to enter 6 from the bottom, but nothing indicates that it is the actual way to go. And a wall is blocking the transition off to 6, so the player has an even greater chance of getting stuck inside the tiles.
6 has a lot of collision errors.
In 7, 8 and 9, I give a repaired look and overview about what these 3 rooms could shape up to be.





In any cases, I hope these couple points will help you improve your buildings skills. I don't know if this is one of your first levels, but it is more than fine to play. Hoping to see more of you man :viridian:
