This cart presents some information about how to make levels through signs in the game (in the first level). The second level illustrates how water works, but it has no signs explaining it cause you can only use so many signs in the game.

Two things to be aware of (about making 8 Bit Panda levels) that are not in the tutorial:

-You cannot use the top 8 map pages (the top row, pages 0-7) for levels. When a level loads, it "unpacks" to the top 8 pages, and then "packs" again after it's finished. Therefore, the top 8 map pages must be left blank.

-You can only use three levels per isle and there can only be six isles. If you try to create a level 1-4 or 7-1, for example, it won't work.

To learn more about 8 Bit Panda, read the original cart's comments and code.

The comments and code on this cart are the same as in the original 8 Bit Panda cart, except for one comment i added at the top of the code, and a couple of changes in the LVL table. The comment is about how to access the debug menu (i didn't create the debug menu; it's in the original game). The changes in the LVL table are:

-the background colors and palettes of levels 1 and 2
-the length of levels 1, 2, and 3

Another good thing to read is an article Oliveira (the creator of the game) wrote, which can be accessed through a link on the 8 Bit Panda github page: https://github.com/btco/panda
