Hi guys and girls! I'm Nathan and welcome to my profile!

I have been posting levels since 2016 and I still am!

Things I'm not too sure how to do:


Hard Levels


Hard levels kinda revolve around puzzles, precise timings, and a lot of good challenges. I mostly know how to make medium and easy challenges. However, I guess I'm learning how to make hard levels.


Note: If the level is not as good it's because I'm not good at making hard levels.

Rainy May (Finished)


The Island (Part 7) (Finished)

 The Island

After SMF3's retirement, the series will still be continued. It will just be displayed on YouTube (cause after June 12th, no more SMF levels) with each level code provided (including the story).


Tips For Making Levels:


1. Don't make the level look bland and boring (and also flat). Add scenery to make the level look more detailed and more interesting.

Note: Think about the scenery you're using. If you want to put scenery in the ground, try to see if the tile you are using looks good with the ground. If you are using outside or inside scenery, you can use a semi-solid (a platform or ground that only the top you can walk on. The rest of it you can pass through it, it's really preferred to be used inside platforms). Try to experiment and see what and what doesn't work (by placing scenery and seeing if it fits with the level or not) Also don't put scenery too close or far away from each other (1 - 6 tiles away from each other. 1 being minimum and 6 being maximum) 


2. When you're adding enemies, make sure they are spaced and not too close or far away from each other (2 - 7 tiles away from each other). If you want to put an enemy next to where Mario is make sure the enemy is not too close to him.

Note: If Mario or Luigi has to jump off a bullet bill you don't need to put an enemy there. Don't be repetitive and use the same enemies. Use different enemies and see if they fit the level. Think about where you want to place an enemy. Also, don't put enemies on top of each other. 


3. Challenges are what makes the level fun and/or challenging so try to make good challenges (try to make at least 1 challenge that stands out or makes the level more challenging. Also try to make some creative challenges). 

4. Do not make blind jumps in a level. It will make the player think that they have to take a leap of faith, or it will make them think that if they fall, they will die. To fix blind jumps, put an arrow pointing where to go or coins telling you where to go. Do not spam power-ups (that's putting too much). You can put mushrooms or 1-Ups next to a checkpoint, a power-up at the beginning of the level, or a power-up where you need it. 

Note: Place a checkpoint where it's necessary. If the level is short, don't bother putting one unless the level is too hard. 


5. Play the level to see what works and what doesn't. See if you can beat your own level.

Hey everyone, I'm still planning on updating my profile (banner & background) pretty soon. So yeah, stay tuned for that!

Another thing, thanks so much for 44 plays on Rocky Beach! Didn't think that much people would check it out, but thank you! I genuinely appreciate it :3
