Fun little beginner level. I don’t know if I would have started with the camera move for a beginning level, or at least might have made it player enabled or had more of a starting delay because i found it a bit challenging to keep up. For a moment I was worried the whole thing was going to be camera movement, hah.
I think the puzzle of getting all the Jems was fun and quite clear. I love that you integrated all the powerups into the level. I appreciate that you had a checkpoint. The use of arrows was good, but I would probably turn off the old arrows if possible, as the new arrows turn on. It started to get a little bit cluttered after a while.
Overall really fun, neat level and a few tweaks from a perfect beginner level. Keep at it!
Nice use of backdrop and hidden terrain to make a feeling of inside and out. I like that you used spikes as decorations in some places. You definite nailed the desert temple, metroidvania type of vibe.
The armor was a nice way to make it easier for casual players. I’m glad you put a checkpoint in because I died near the end. I think you make good use of backtracking to force players to cover the same space multiple times.
I love the spike droppers in the beginning making the space feel trapped and dangerous without actually killing the player.Great casual, beginner friendly level overall.

I like the escalating difficulty. I’d love to see a sequel with slightly more variety in terrain and some decoration tiles to make it feel more cohesive. You could easily add some dense fog to the top bits to give it a little spice. Great start!
