Actually, Quill's reviews were some of my favorite from this specific contest. From past contests, castlewars and Chad were my favorites. I don't know, I just like certain reviewing styles more than others, I guess.

Exploration in Interior of the Strange Mammal Beached
Person to Blame: Shinbison-Kof
Difficulty: explosive/diarrhea

Gameplay: ?/5
Aesthetics: ?/5
How Did You Crash My Game Bonus: Overkill/5

FINAL SCORE: uhhhhh?

DarkMatt sez:I cannot play this on the account of my SMBX exploding when I try to load it. What the hell kind of SMBX do you guys use, seriously?

BUT, I can load it in PGE, so I'll just give it a quick look. Looks like something I would give a 4 or so to. Next.
Do you can't play my level? T-T

PS: very nice topic!

The screenshot for Shinbison-Kof's level is not a screenshot of Smbx. It is a Gif of Kibby Supah Sta.

Try again.
Now taking graphics requests:

My graphics pack:

Really tempted to just make a general graphics thread for all of my graphics instead of just making individual threads for each of them.

Well, that is supposed to be related to a joke, right? It is better to not ask as of why it is here.

Spoilers that was actually just for the warning.

But still, not reading the OP is no good.

Message of the Day:
Image-Well, here we are. We chopped through 64 or so levels to finally get to the tootsie roll center of the shit pop. The only question that remains is, do these last 8 levels deserve their place? SORRY FOR RUSHING THIS.

#8:
Spoiler: show

Image

Foliage Fissure
Person to Blame: Bomber57
Difficulty: 3/5

Gameplay: 5/5
Aesthetics: 4/5
Dragon Coin Bonus: 4/5

FINAL SCORE: 4.33

DarkMatt sez:Now that I've slashed through all the other bad game designs, can I talk a bit about areas that have NO PURPOSE OTHER THAN DRAGON COINS? Fucking shit I would fucking like it if I didn't have this dragon coin in my hand and go, "GEE. I'M NOT GONNA BE COLLECTING THE OTHER 4." Seriously what the fuck. Other than that this is 4 carrot gold gameplay. No, seriously, the level was actually pretty fun and pretty challenging to go through. I didn't fall asleep and those dragon coins were my only beef with this level.
#7:
Spoiler: show

Image

Windy Woodtop
Person to Blame: Darkonius64
Difficulty: 3/5

Gameplay: 5/5
Aesthetics: 5/5
Never Look Back Bonus: 4/5

FINAL SCORE: 4.66

DarkMatt sez:What was super impressive is that this level had 6 different gimmicks, and all of them worked. The only problem with this level is the same you might find in, say, 6-8 in Yoshi's Island. Once I find your easiest path, I have no incentive to take the others. Not saying you should make every path mandatory, just that if you split them all apart some of your level is going to be untouched in a practical full-fledged episode.
#6:
Spoiler: show

Starlight Spectral Shrub
Person to Blame: FireLink
Difficulty: 2/5

Gameplay: 4/5
Aesthetics: 5/5
Transmogrify Bonus: 4/5

FINAL SCORE: 4.33

DarkMatt sez:Why did this suddenly become new super mario bros after the midway point and not the beginning of the level? Oh well, the aesthetics were nice albeit a bit stitched together. Level direction is also a bit shaky but not too bad. Basically this is a level chock full of miniscular problems I cannot harp on, like that screenshot.
#5:
Spoiler: show

Image

Ashen Acropolis
Person to Blame: sezixor
Difficulty: 4/5

Gameplay: 4/5
Aesthetics: 4/5
Lava is STILL slow Bonus: 4/5

FINAL SCORE: 4

DarkMatt sez:Lava n' stuff. The part at the end was a really fun way to make the most out of your level. To balance that, waiting for slow lava, AGAIN.

also yet again the music for this level is treated like a video except it's not THIS IS FIFTH PLACE AND IT STILL HAS GLARING TECHNICAL PROBLEMS HOW THE FUCK CAN YOU RETARDS NEVER MAKE SURE EVERYTHING WORKS BEFORE SENDING IT OFF HOLY SHIT YOU ARE ALL SHITTY ASS GAME DESIGNERS
Fourth Place and a special reward goes to:
#4:
Spoiler: show

Operation Star Snatcher
Person to Blame: Sednaiur
Difficulty:3/5

Gameplay: 5/5
Aesthetics: 5/5
Length Bonus: 4/5

FINAL SCORE: 4.66

DarkMatt sez:Like some lesser levels, this goes on for a a long time. However, unlike those levels, it finds the ways necessary to keep going on entertaining. I think there was something about a bonus star somewhere I didn't really care.

Anyway, here's that special reward so that you too can see what he got.
ImageThird place and a Steam Game or Community Market Item valued at $3.00 or less goes to:

Wild Western Walk
Person to Blame: SuperMario7
Difficulty: 3/5

Gameplay: 4/5
Aesthetics: 4/5
Oil Bullshit Bonus: 4/5

FINAL SCORE: 4

DarkMatt sez:Man this level goes all over the god damn place with its graphics. I have seen everything it does in levels before it and I generally like those more than this. More varied aesthetics does not equal more better, espcecially when I've seen others use your theme and your level tricks and some of them do it better than you.
ImageFirst loser and a Steam Game/Market Item valued at $5.00 or less goes to:
#2:
Spoiler: show

Image

Steins;Volcano
Person to Blame: Kyo
Difficulty: 5/5

Gameplay: 4/5
Aesthetics: 4/5
Dubstep Bonus: 3/5

FINAL SCORE: 3.66

DarkMatt sez:This shit really wants to be hard without actually knowing what a hard level is. Nothing's more frustrating than lava everyfuckingwhere and thus having a single mistake spell death. That and OOP FORGOT THE FIRST SWITCH TIME TO GO BACK. That and the aesthetics. I've seen these before. I've seen them used in a better way than square lava everywhere and lava falls to add "depth" to the level theme. Why is this 2nd? It has a lot of flair and a couple of good ideas but it has a good amount of terrible ones as well.
ImageThe fucker who won this contest and got a $10 thing off Steam goes to:
#1:
Spoiler: show

Image

Steins;Lab
Person to Blame: Emral
Difficulty: 3/5

Gameplay: 5/5
Aesthetics: 5/5
Chrono Trigger Bonus: 5/5

FINAL SCORE: 5

DarkMatt sez:Now let me talk a bit about the backstory behind this contest. This guy, right here? He was one of the judges. He was also one of the worst judges. Bunch of people myself included gave him shit about how bad his judging was, and we didn't just do it because he shot decent levels way down the ranks, it actually was reaaaaallllly bad. Like seriously, he should not have been a judge.

But he should have won the contest.

This is the sort of level I would recommend to Kyasarin. We have a setting, we have it fleshed out, and we have powerful gimmicks to keep it interesting to go through. There may be backtracking involved but it isn't particularly serious nor is it a problem to continue going through here. The graphics are also used to their fullest as the level theme stays consistent throughout the entire ride. Unlike third place, which shoved a bunch of graphics to be diverse, and second, which cared more about being a hard level than a pretty one, this level strikes a well-sounding note between fun to play and interesting to go through. No matter who the hell says whatever the fuck, Emral won this contest with flair and he is a fantastic level designer.

I just hope he never judges ever again. He's a far better artist than an art critic.

oh and reason why i got a screenshot of a glitch is because honestly I cannot find a single spot to take a shot of. This is best experienced in its whole instead of framed on a wall. (hey bossedit)
