My first level, not too bad but a bit short I must say, check it out if you have not.

How may I take my revenge without any level to do so? I'm ruined!

Well, I see most of the levels everyone here has made (including my own), this might be a problem because I only see about 16 levels in my archive, could this be a bug of some sort?

Did you upload your vvvvvv level as an attachment when you made your topic post?  If not, you could modify the post to include it..

Yeah, you have to attach your level to a post here. VVVVVV doesn't automatically add a level to EVERYONE's game. There's no WAY I would get used to that.

That could be the fact, thanks! :viridian:

No problem.

Yeah, the levels are neither online nor automatically accessible.  You have to upload them somewhere (in the post or mediafire or dropbox), and let people download them.

Darn, the file size is too big for some reason, it's 150kb, but the total is 192kb, this level may take a while to attach, sorry! :victoria:

You should be able to attach your level to a post if you compress it.

If you're using Windows, I recommend installing 7zip (http://www.7-zip.org/). If that doesn't work for you for whatever reason, lots of people use WinRAR (http://www.rarlab.com/).

Either of these will give you several different compression options. I'd say .zip is a safe bet. Linux people hate it, but they're used to dealing with it by now. It's certainly a better choice than .rar (Linux people hate this even more) or .7z (most Windows users have WinRAR which doesn't do .7z)

Heh that's a pretty short level. Do the terminals deliberately do nothing?  Also you can exit the room "Biome" and get stuck in "Bothersome" you might want to block that off.

Yeah, they need some tweaks, so I'll make sure to do that, the terminals I have trouble with, so I'll remove them.

It's fixed! Try it now!

It would be better if you attached the download to the very first post. Then people won't have to go through the topic looking for. :verdigris:

Enjoyment: 6/10
Aesthetics: 8/10
Novelty: 2/10
Difficulty: 4/10
Room Names: 7/10

Well that was short!  So short I have very little to say about it, but here's my thoughts on improvement:
 - The description is all on one line and is cut off.  You might want to type it in several lines.
 - The Terminals don't say anything.  Not sure if this was intentional or a glitch, but it seemed weird.
 - The level seemed a bit... lifeless.  I'm not sure how else I can describe it.  Might have been the terminals not saying anything.
 - Trinkets were in rather uninspired places, particularly the first.  I would've liked to see at least a little bit more challenge for them.
 - Spikes on the second to last screen were not shown because of the roomname.  Might want to redesign that room.

I did moderately enjoy the level, I just think a little more time could have been put into it.  A few of the things might be glitches that only happen on my computer, but the level is still a bit boring.  I did like your room design for the most part though (particularly the second room)!

Decent level. You should probably aim for quality over quantity.
