In my opinion. i think that the level design of his levels is horrible. the wide open area the fact that the level lacks some details. the only thing i credit him for doing are those pixel art but those are lagging the game. also his marbles are just copy and paste job and most of it comes from google pictures. i feel that mbu has lost some quality control over those levels. i played those levels and i also don't like how the gem spawn is made. i had issue with the crystal world because it was too large and too confusing to navigate trough. some gems are inaccessible without blast. his levels have good idea, i give it that. but the way they are designed and executed is just wrong. if someone would recreate those levels then it would be really nice, since those levels are just badly designed :/

These will be removed if we have enough people who agree.

If nobody shouts nice and loud that they want these back (with the exception of Electro himself) , they will be removed starting 1.9 Dev Build 1.

I like the levels just wish that they worked. they crash in multi and lag in single play practice.

Really? I like all of his levels (except for the hard-to-navigate Princess Peach Castle one, but that still has an awesome idea)...

The problem with these levels is that they do not follow Marble Blast Ultra's design aesthetic, and they are difficult to maintain because of how many textures and parts they use, and how big and grand they are, not to mention how long they take to load. Some people, such as Kurt, Erik (who is no longer active in the community) and DeathPony seem to like them for their creativity. Others, for all the reasons I have listed above, want them cut. I'd normally say we keep them and if you don't like them, don't play them, but they're too glitchy, they don't work, and david184 has a rather solid argument here, so I'm definitely leaning towards getting rid of them.

I've played one of his stages before, called Highway...
Took me 20 minutes to complete, someone else would've probably have given up by the 5KM mark, while I was determined to get to the end...
Too long for my liking, and the Par time is 45 seconds... like, wth?

I can complete that level in a minute and and half - you need to make use of the super speeds!
The general consensus here is that they should be removed so far... except for you, BlockyShinx?
