Description ~Mind is a razorblade~

You'll need poise when dealing with bounceblocks on this. If you don't, well, it'll probably be good training for you. Bounceblocks are my favourite part of N, and this is a race level that makes the most of them. If you're stuck, see my demo for the flow. Enjoy.

sweep is one of my favorite authors ever. This is a classic sweep map. Heartbeats is very smooth and intuitive, without losing a sense of challenge.

Before this, I had not seen bounce-blocks used to this degree in race or action. Gold is there for directional purposes only, a helping hand for you to find your way more easily. — rocket_thumped

I like it

apart from theshav's object races this is the first race ive ever seen that uses bounceblocks. 4.5/5


I'm with Lucidium. It feels so good and fun to play. Very creative as well.

In my opinion, this beats the crazy miner three times over. 5/5 faved. Even though I messed up at the end, the rest of the demo was perfect,so oh well.

One of the best race maps I've ever seen. I love how open the track is, race maps are usually too restrictive; Makes it feel less linear than it atually is.

However, IMO, if you could make this completely non-linear, you'd be onto something *really* special.

This is the *best*

use of bounce blocks I've ever seen! Motherlode actually had very ingeniously positioned bounce blocks too. Faved

Same time...

Really great map, very thoughtful and creative. Faved.

I actually found that very last jump to the exit more difficult as you needed to move quickly. Fun map.
Demo Data

Really innovative

The bounce blocks were really cool.


The feel of this map is just great. It's *really* fun when you get it right.
Nice one.


the demo. Not perfect, but still pretty good. I think there's only one really tough jump in here, the huge wall-jump off the bounceblock near the end...
