8700+ but dont you think the stage is a little difficult for an N contest. This looks more like something in A.

I completely agree with Tomo. I was thinking of an idea for the N contest. What if we had like a quality control thing, since it is kinda difficult to amke a stage challenging yet easy enough att he same time. have someone like look at the stage before its put up. Im not even trying on this one because its to dang hard though, so that score above stands.

I think this level is fun. How can you say its too hard after you already finished it?

it's not fun... it should have many options like first N competition

errm? It can't be too difficult since there are some straightforward sledgehammer approaches to finishing it. An N shouldn't be a problem if it is moderately difficult anyway, since there is a week to solve it, and we aren't competing with the experts. All we would get is a wide range of scores. However, I suspect the complaint is really that it is going to be difficult to WIN it rather than do it. Well, here's to lots of spread scores - I'll be leading from the bottom!

Having said that, I am wary of all levels, especially N, which have complex layouts because they exercise too many bugs in the program. There are a lot of bizarre effects in this one.

ummm there are no bizzare effects in this stage. if there where you would hit play and weird crap would happen. Its just a maze with a bunch of anchor points. Also as for completing the stage and then saying its to hard. I'm not N, i just havent won any comp's. I have been playing AR for a long time, i beat alot of games claiming they were too hard.
