Title: SMB X VVVVVV: A Retro Crossover V1.1
Post by: xtravisage on June 24, 2014, 05:30:05 pm
Hello all, this is my first custom level.  It started out with me trying to put level 1-1 of Super Mario Bros. into the creator for fun.  But it kinda just morphed out of control from there.  It's got two Mario-like levels, two VVVVVV-like levels, and a final level.  I also started it way before I knew you could expand the grid, so it's only 5x5, but I crammed as much as I possibly could into that grid.  In any case, it turned out pretty good, quite difficult (at least, by my standards) and with a bit of humor here and there.  I won't spoil the plot or anything (the most gripping plot in all of existence! ::)), but you do rescue  :verdigris: :violet: :vitellary: :victoria: :vermillion: these guys.  Anyway, play it, have fun, and tell me what you think! :-*

EDIT: I have replayed the level and fixed a few things.  I also got rid of a gravity line near the end that unintentionally did make the game impossible.  Very few changes to level design, but one typo fixed and a warning added at the point of no return to avoid an entirely possible unwinnable situation I didn't foresee.  Sorry if anyone was affected by that  :'(.

Where?  I tested it several times and I didn't see anything.  What do you mean by "terrain errors"?

At some points, spikes completely block your progress. You can't pass them. Please fix  :viridian:

There shouldn't be anywhere you can't get past.  Which screen(s) are you talking about?

Oh no, trust me, those are very possible.  I tested them out myself.  They're difficult, but quite possible.  Assuming the download didn't corrupt or something.

Anyway, please, if anyone else has played it, tell me your thoughts!

What I mean is, you're too big to fit through.

No, you're not.  Like I said, I've played through these screens.  They're not impossible.

I've played through the level, including the first version which you claimed was impossible, and beat it just fine. Just saying :P

Huh.  Good to know.  I guess you can pass that gravity line.

You are playing on invincibility!
if play with it off, you can fit through.
this happens whenever I use invincibility as well.
