Destructoid/Blast Works level design contest UPDATE: Zycyzyx Returns

Only one entry in the contest this week, but it doesn’t matter because it would have beaten any other competitors anyway. Zxcyzyx, previously only available in preview form, is now complete, and it’s fantastic. Two bosses, multiple power ups, hidden “Score bags”, amazing art direction, and three Legendary Wings inspired ships made specifically for this level make the total package equal to or greater than anything found in the Blast Works main game. BudCat, I think you just found a new employee. 

Please don’t let the greatness on Zxcyzyx intimidate the rest of you from entering the contest. You still have a chance to win it all, little guy! I’m still waiting to see a level with a playable SpaceCat ship and a Mr. Destructoid boss fight.
