Level Review.

Atmosphere/theme:
The atmosphere of the level was pretty great. And felt like you where traveling through a massive bee hive. However even through I liked the music choice it felt kinda out of place for some reason,Like it sounds too final levelish. Mostly because the music was a remix of Krook's march. Other than that the atmosphere was captured decently.
8/10

Gameplay:
My favorite part of this level was the addition of the bee mushroom which cleverly replaced one of link's powerups. However I wished this powerup had more involvement and interaction in the level instead of being in one section. Some other criticism I have is some enemy placement on the boss. The fire generator at the top of the screen when you go against the circling wasp can sometimes be blocked from view if you have a powerup in your inventory and some players will never know that it was there if they still have a powerup in the slot. Another reason why its badly placed is because the circling wasp are moving too fast and makes it more difficult to avoid the flames. Another thing is when you hit the giant wasp when he's throwing bombs, The generator doesn't disappear after you kill him which should be fixed. For anything the level was more easier than the boss. Positives of the level is the rest of the level design. Good dragon coin placement and some redeeming npc placement. The boss was very creative and entertaining as well. The positives out weighs all the negatives in this level imo.
score: 7.9/10

Total score
8.5/10

A very great level in my opinion. The boss can be improved though.

Did you kill King Zinc during the projected bomb segment? I don't think you are supposed to kill him, I even make him high enough so that you can't stomp him.

You can kill him, which also causes the Bombs to Generator to stop moving. Also the Last Phase with Mother Brain is pretty
confusing for a not SMBX Veteran. The whole time it was the rule to spin on King Zinc and suddently spinning on him hurts
you.

It wasnt high enough. I still managed to kill him some how. maybe you should set him as a friendly npc when he is launching the bombs.

Still using the legacy editor? Get SMBX2 and PGE, it will improve your experience significantly. Here's why. And remember, Yoshis are tools to be used and discarded.

you can't expect 2.0 stuff to be playable in 1.4. The engines are fundamentally different.

well, assuming you have the latest version, which ones exactly?

Also Cato, it would be good if there were one or two backtrack pipes in the fairy section. The boss phase which spawns two large hornets should kinda announce where they spawn so players don't get hit at first time.

I got this on the mole boss.

Perhaps a missing music or misspelled file name. Or maybe it's just my end. Otherwise a good level to have played.

Also, careful about using nogravity NPC's as this can unfortunately happen.

Yeah, that was careless of me. Looks like I misplace the wrong music file. Also, I disabled what the GIF shows by putting an invisible player block. Should be updated in the download.

I liked the honey level quite a lot, I think the boss was creative, though it was never telegraphed what would happen next which got annoying, and the sections where you were a bee was also fun.

Just a quick suggestion, you honestly should be a checkpoint right before the boss fights
If you mean two checkpoints every level, I may have to consider my level style, especially some level has optional boss fight, making the level checkpoint inconsistent.
If you mean relocating the checkpoint, just no. My level style is basically like: Before the checkpoint, showcasing the gimmick of the level. After the checkpoint, extensively use the gimmick on more difficult stuff. The boss shouldn't be that hard, you have 2 powerups.

I mean add a checkpoint right before the final boss, not an optional boss. It's not hard but it is annoying having to traverse the entire half of the level if you do die to a boss at the end, especially since some of the bosses are 3-6 minutes. 2.0 supports multiple checkpoints
