weekly map discussion or it can be better described as review. Every week I will be picking random map from PQ's map pool (excluding bonus and tutorial categories for now, custom levels may happen depending on how this goes), here you can share any opinions, share positive things you liked about the map or just point out pros and cons and express all the anger you have to the person who made the map :side:


5th map of the week is out here: Downhill and Out of Here!!

Category: begginer
Level: 18
Desc:"It can be an uphill battle to stay on the course."
There where 3 versions of this level made. The first an absolute disaster, the second was this level just with a 90-degree rotated start, and this being the third. It converted without problems thanks to map2dif_plus from Seizure22.


Do you have any ideas what I should do for the 10th WMD? Should I post some custom for everyone to review, check some bonus level, maybe something else? Post below!

No complaints from me. It's fun, it's fast, and it's a great beginner level. 9/10
(Nice powerup box in the top right, RDs. :P)

First player ever to get all of the Awesome Times.

Downhill and Out of Here!! : 5/10

I largely prefer Black Diamond or Ski Slopes than this level. At least, the Time Travels were easier to catch, whereas, in DOH, you have to perform small pyramid hits to get those Time Travels, and that can be annoying at times, as hitting a pyramid with a quite big amount of speed to get a Time Travel that is lower than the marble's jump height is really innacurate and painful to pull (and even more to fail, due to the Ultimate Time and the Awesome Time).

So I'd say DOH is not good but not bad. Just the average.

You forget a thousand things everyday. Make sure Marble Blast isn't one of 'em.

After playing this level for a bit, I absolutely love it! My favorite part of the level is being able to go F-Zero fast (unlike Ski Slopes) while collecting a decent amount of TT's. It's nice, easy, and most importantly, FUN. The struggle for the AT is worth it.

Solid 5/5 from me!

Levels that anyone will enjoy without:
Dragged Up, Daedal Helix, Fighting Slopes, Ring Stunts, the last 5 levels of Advanced

Amazing Level, it looks as if it was inspired by black diamond. When I first saw this level in the trailer, I expected it to be in Advanced difficulty but it's easier than it looks like. The nest egg is horribly painful to get as when you try to get close to it, you just win the level without even being on the finish pad. TTs are ok to get, it got me a decent time.
4/5 because it seems short.

Really good level, less annoying than skee slopes in MBG and way more enjoyable, the pits are really well placed so you don't fall OOB so easly yet it is still a bit challenging to plan your route to avoid them and gain as much speed as possible.
+ also less flight time unlike MBU version of similar idea

Solid 10/10 idgaf about speed running and TT placement didn't felt random eater.

Really great level to go fast on although I'm not that great in going down super fast on levels that have slopes with bumps (take Glacier from MBU custom levels). The Ultimate Time is appropriately difficult to achieve because of its level design, but just beating the level is quite simple enough for a beginner level. Lastly, the Nest Egg is very easy to see, but very hard to collect. 10/10

Awesome Hint:

Since the Awesome Time/Score is secret, you will have to beat it in order to find out what it is. Just practice every day, and be ready to keep pressing the 'Restart' button...A LOT!
