Because of the constant gamemode changes it's very hard for me to judge part by part, but I will judge divided into four categories; Design (& Deco), Music sync, Originality and Gameplay (I will still point out specific parts from the level though). I may overrate this a TON, but I REALLY, REALLY, REALLY like this level.
First words/Impressions: Wow! This level is AMAZING. I am speechless!! The music sync is absolutely incredible and the gameplay is so fun, creative and interesting/exciting. Design isn't the best, but it's still very detailed and has a nice electric theme throughout the entirety of the level. I am impressed, Shocksidian!
Gameplay: Fast-paced, very fun, interesting and synced extremely good to the music. Most of the gameplay is amazing, but here are some suggestions (keep in mind that this is SUPER picky because the level is obviously awesome): The mini-cube part at 0:11 is very fun, but maybe hint the player a bit more of which platforms are fake? Orbs at 0:20 comes too unexpectedly. The blue pads at 0:23 should perhaps be visible here, but it's not a big problem. A bit buggy at 0:30 because of all the platforms and tele-portals. The gravity portal at 0:41 is a bit unfair because you have to be really close to the edge of it to not instant crash (hard to explain, but it could've been placed better). Player doesn't know he/she is upside down at 0:49. A lot of things are happening at 0:54 (which in general is good) and it's a bit buggy, maybe hint the player more by placing arrows on which platforms the player should jump on? Transition at 0:56 isn't that good because from wave to triple speed ship is hard to control and comes very unexpectedly. Robot part at 1:03 wasn't that fun to be honest because of the pillar jumps at the robot part where you have to be extremely precise (especially at 1:05). Keep in mind that all of the things I mentioned is nano-small things and parts such as 0:29-0:31, 0:37-0:53 and 1:06 - 1:15 is stupidly fun to play
Originality: To be honest you have a very original style. The level's deco itself isn't original, but the arrangement as a whole is pretty unique and I love the theme. The music sync is also extremely good which results as the level is easy to remember. The level also has extremely good 3D block usage and I often remember your levels because of that. Gameplay is also very creative and unique. All in all, great job here!
Music Sync: The level is amazing at this point, it's unbelievable how good this is at music sync! Sections such as 0:10 - 0:14, the orbs at 0:21, the blue pads at 0:24, THIS PART AT 0:25 - 0:29, 0:31 - 0:33, genius idea of the small blocks at 0:47, 0:51-0:59 (o.O was my reaction), and pretty much all the parts from 1:00 syncs and last but not least the GENIUS ENDING. The text which appears at the end fits perfectly to the song style. MY ONLY complaint at this point is that the ship part at 1:01 - 1:03 didn't sync that much, but now I'm being very picky. Other than that you have BG-flashes and the style fits perfectly to the song. brilliant atmosphere.
Design: Design is very good. My complaint here is that the deco isn't that special, you could probably be more creative. The level still has detailed design and very good block designs which fits very good as a whole. Some color combinations such as the designs at 1:16 could've been worked out better. I am still impressed, especially how well executed and well-worked out this is. I love how you keep the 3D block designs and how well organized all the deco and the design really is, and there are no awkward transitions where you need to fill in with black blocks above or under the ground/roofs. Keep up the awesome work, Shocksidian!
Total Score: 9.7/10 - Awesome level with amazing music sync, fun gameplay and pretty good design as well. I am extremely impressed.
LEGENDARY + Level pick
- I won't move this because for someone this may be extremely overrated + that last time I moved something to legendary everyone freaked out @zielgd TimeLink opinions? Shocksidian

I (almost) 100% agree with what you said. Especially the part about the robot part at 1:03, that part is complete cancer in both gameplay and design but I was too lazy to redo it. I also like that you pointed out that the ending is good, because I really like it aswell
So yeah thanx for the review and I'm glad you liked my level
luizdaniel: What color do I use emerald, turquoise or magenta for my level?
