JUDGING FACTORS

FUNCTIONALITY

Create a level that utilises in-game mechanics and elements to their best potential and put it on display.

EXAMPLES

Using one-way walls for koopa shell mazes
Using one-way walls in another creative, functional form
Repetitive and unnecessary placements of one-way walls
Doors leading to immediate death (with the exception of quiz levels!)

CREATIVITY

Create a level that showcases your creative ability to its fullest.

EXAMPLES

Showcasing your unique creativity and ideas
Abiding by the Spring theme (no winter levels)
Not doing the above!

PLAYER FRIENDLINESS

Create a level with a basic interface playable and accessible for the average player.

EXAMPLES

Easy to navigate levels or timely puzzles
Locked doors with keys on the other side of the level
Levels that may average over 30 minutes in attempt time to defeat. In other words, the difficulty is capped at expert – no kaizo levels please.

Experienced and passionate level testers will play through the levels and handpick the levels that meet the criteria above. On 14th May at 8pm UK time, our Mario Maker-loving staff will be present as judges on stream to play through levels selected by testers. The judges will rate the levels out of 10 on each factor. The level with the highest average rating on each factor will score their creator the choice of Discord Nitro or a £10 eShop gift card.
