Level of the Year 2019 was created by Mike
2019. The end of a year and the end of an epic decade! We, as a community, had many great moments together.

Let us celebrate the close of this decade with another competition. More than 55 custom levels were created this year, but only one can be declared the Level of the Year!


Here's the Google Form with our candidates: forms.gle/g9YD7EaRhz2kpdqH7

Although this competition will function similarly to last year's, there are some differences. Instead of ranking levels from a scale of 0-5, we'll be using a scale of 0-6.

In the form above, you can rank the levels on a 0-6 scale, where 0 is the lowest, 3 is neutral, and 6 is the highest. Ranking every level is not required and you are welcome to change your vote any time before the deadline. Please make sure to indicate who you are. This is to ensure that there are no double votes, troll votes, etc. Please make sure to play the levels before rating them, and try to make your ratings as unbiased as possible.

As of this post, we are voting for our Top 5 Nominees, meaning that after this vote, another vote will take place between the five highest scoring levels from this vote. Remember to check for the second voting round!


Like last year, meme/low-effort levels have been removed because they don't properly reflect our community's ability to build (mainly for simplicity).

Banned users aren't allowed to vote or have their levels in the vote. Sorry, Nockess. :(


If you have any further questions, please don't hesitate to ask me. Have fun, happy voting, and happy new year!

Okay! I’ve finally got the results! Thank you for your patience. I don't have much to say here, so let's dive into the results!


This year, three levels are tied for third place! With one vote each, our third-place levels are Whirling’ on a Prayer, Clotide’s Dusky Galaxy, and Kaboomization. Rotating platforms? Gravity curves? A Michael Bay-amount of explosions? You want it? These levels got it!





In second place, we have none other than Goto 10 by Go'way. This Blender-made beauty received three votes. Not only does this level have enough complex geometry to melt your brain, but it may have introduced an entirely new way of creating custom levels! Exciting!





But only one level can be the Level of the Year, and that level is… DRUMROLL PLEASE!





High Maintenance by Endy!

This level is, without a doubt, Endy’s masterpiece. I have never seen a level that is so attentive to both detail and gameplay. This level dominated the competition, with a total of six votes! This complex construction course is definitely a must-play and I am pleased to announce that this level is the
Level of the Year!




I would like to dedicate this time to thanking all the people that made this happen. Thank you to creators for continuously fuelling this community with wonderful content and thank you to the people who took their time to vote in this event. But most importantly, I’d like to thank the people who always supported me. You are the reason I keep going. You help me look at my success and smile at them, and you comfort me through my failures. You are the people that help keep me inspired and aspired. You support me for who I am rather than who I want to be, and you hold a special place in my heart.
You know who you are and I truly thank you.

See you next year. - Mike
