A little level I made with four colour zones and an unfinished polar dimension.

Nice level! Some good ideas, although there are a few things that I feel slightly strange.

This one can result in situation like this. I like the design of the room though.

The surprise unfortunately comes to the fact that whether you drop to the warp token at right direction. You can get insta-killed.

The spikes at side are strange because it seems weird to have such gap in this design.
The idea is good but I think the transition to the next room can be better.
The first time enterting the next room, I got killed by spikes underneath the inversion planes.

Just asking a question, are you supposed to use the inversion planes? It looks good there, but I was wondering its purpose.

The impossible thing is to go back =.=
I can work my way near the beginning, but then I can't go anymore.
Finally, is the trinket zone not supposed to work now? It does not seem to be right now.

I love the level very much overall though. The difficulty is 'just right' - not so hard that you can barely pass rooms or so easy that you complete it too quickly.
The design and look of rooms are great.
I hope you can create more levels :D

Ok, as for the first pic, there is a trick script behind the line ( :D) so you have to go back a room.
The second pic, that room I made hard on purpose to make the difficulty rise and the hard mode is
HELL  :vermillion:.
The red|yellow split-up is to test timing and I put the spikes underneath for decoration but I
didn't know it could be such a hazard.
No you are not supposed to use the inversion planes but in the level beta (before this level came
into public) they were used.
Oh, sorry! I forgot to put the crew in!
Anyway, thanks for the feedback!

And the hard mode (inept2).

Maybe it's a good idea to attach them to the first post, so people don't think the old version is the newest version?

The screenshots look OK but you don't crop so great. Also we use the same windows aero color scheme, what a coincidence!

...........the screenshots are not made by the OP. I used the cropping tool in Windows 7, so they weren't made that great....

I just noticed that. I use crop tool in MS Paint and my screens are fine. Why do you have chinese letters or whatever?

I also noticed that, but I think that's Chinese handwriting recognition which is always on top.

This level is pretty fun!

One thing I noticed, when exiting this room:

I float into endless outerspace.



Edit: Ah, I just noticed you mentioned that part of the map is unfinished.

I am a Chinese.....more accurately a HongKonger. That is a Chinese inputting application - literally translated as "nine squares"...
It's possible to mke it disappear temporary - I just forgot about it  :-[
Ah, thanks for clearing that up.
