New course uploaded yesterday and updated to OP. I'm not sure what got the idea into my head. I guess I was thinking about how many minigames I could possibly cram into the same level, and it made me want to do a version of Action 52 where some of the games would be glitched, unplayable, or have softlocks. Due to the limitation on transporting Pipes and Doors, I was able to create 16 games accessed from the start screen and a sub start screen laid out the same as the start screen. By using a P-Switch to the right of the main start screen, I was able to add a 17th game. And then doing the same with the sub start screen, but moving this start screen over one screen, I was able to create P-Switch accessible minigames to the left and right for a total of 19 games. The last game is behind a locked door and can only be accessed by creating a Key from 9 Key Coins distributed throughout the other minigames. Once you know which 9 minigames contain the Key Coins, you can avoid the other minigames (some of which are purposely broken anyway, but only one of which kills you instantly).
This is my first ever course to successfully feature a Recyclable Checkpoint. Meaning, you can save your progress after every successful Key Coin collection. (I had originally attempted this in my Mega Man Returns course, but I didn't understand how it worked at the time.) I also added a Powerup Mushroom to the Checkpoint, which means you can power up every time you save your progress. Not all of the minigames are designed to be traversed while powered up, so you will have to take intentional damage upon entering some of the minigames in order to progress. Because of the Recyclable Checkpoint, I had to beat the course from start to finish without dying 3 times to upload the course.
