Not bad, but as I discovered with my big level, it's generally not a good idea to put checkpoints on crumbling platforms.  This is because if you respawn on such a platform too many times, the game crashes.

also, i think the 9th trinket is glitched. the checkpoint at the end being a trap is intentional?
also, the third trinket challenge should be redesigned. the floating spikes cause you to pass trough while you die, making you break some platforms during the death, and those ones will not reappear until you die again, also, the wall of this same room is misaligned at the end of the challenge. excluding this, a cool level

Can I put the checkpoint one space above/below the platform?

Describe how it's glitched. Did you get stuck in a wall? And is it the checkpoint on the disappearing platform that's the trap?
also, the third trinket challenge should be redesigned. the floating spikes cause you to pass trough while you die, making you break some platforms during the death, and those ones will not reappear until you die again, also, the wall of this same room is misaligned at the end of the challenge.
You mean the fourth challenge? ..... .... ...........  ...... .. . . ..  . . .  . . ..  :victoria:

I think that would technically solve the problem, although nobody likes the sight of floating checkpoints.  It's also worth mentioning that the number of times you can safely respawn on a crumbling platform depends on the room's colour (it's complicated).

I found another flaw in challenge 9.  By mashing the "action" button, it is possible to glitch through the gravity line and thus get the trinket really easily.  (This is the same glitch that allows you to take some shortcuts in the final level of VVVVVV proper.)  You could fix this by increasing the distance between the gravity line and the floor.

Okay. I used backing to make the checkpoints look like they aren't floating.
...But the platforms turn into conveyors after a while. Does this have anything to do with the game crashing?
For 09... well, I'll leave it in. It's very hard to do, harder than doing it legit, so....

Yes. It keeps cycling through sprites until it runs out and crashes.

Why are there no edge pieces to the walls?

The walls are all cut off and there doesn't seem to be a reason making it necessary to move them around in direct mode. Do you just have it like that because you like it better?

I used tiles 132, 135, and 129 because I needed to use Tiles 2 and I wanted it to look like the Space Stations. I figured the Tower could replace the SS look. The tiles mentioned look most like the Tower and SS.
If that makes any sense... well, in other words,
Do you just have it like that because you like it better?
Yes.

Yet another update... This is like VVVVVV Super Adventure - the updates keep coming.
1.1 changes the graphics in 03 and 04, and 09 is back to pre-1.0.
