When I started building this level, it was supposed to be much smaller. The maze part was supposed to be simple underwater tunnel with some challenges and the final cave was not planned at all so if this level feels to you like three levels hastily stitched into one, you're right. It's a bit messed up and with lots of backtracking. I started playing with the tileset in the editor without any idea for the finished level so the "story" only came later, mostly to justify why it looks so unpleasant. I apologise in advance for any damage done to your screens and retinas.

Yes, my eyes may have died a bit, but I love those OCOs, music, and overall mood. I'd say it's on the Large part of the spectrum though, that's a huge maze. Difficulty tag is right.
Good job. :hiddenstar:

I'm glad you liked the level, especially the brutally unfair cave. I was afraid people would find it too unfair. There might be another level set on the island because whenever Juni gets on nice tropical island, some weird stuff happens.

Thank you so much for the advice on how to fix the COs. I was quite fed up with all of the COs that I just took the frames from Knytt DS (which has many errors) and called it a day. I'll eventually make fixed version.

That's because the hologram reduces its unfairness :P

Oh, I would love a "Shipwrecked, But It's Format=4"

I completely agree that sprite sheets in KSDS are awful and shouldn't be used as templates.
However, that wasn't the only issue.

Nice level!
Top-left corner of x1009y1007 doesn't have walls. Also, middle of x1027y1011.

Oh wow, I didn't notice that.
Eagle-eyed as always, GrayFace!
