So the idea of my level gimmick is that there's 4 platforms that rotate in a circle, sort of like the flat platforms in Star Light Zone as seen in the topmost picture of the page, only instead of rotating in a vertical circle, they rotate in a horizontal circle. Now, in a 2-D plain (Sonic 1-3 and Knuckles), this is nearly impossible to simulate, but in a 3-D plain like this game has, 4 platforms spinning in a horizontal circle is doable since you have an x, y and z axis, whereas in the 16-Bit games, you only have x and y.

Here's the link to the drawing (it's the bottom most picture on the page) to give you an idea on what it would look like during gameplay (drawing a fish eye lens view isn't easy!) There's also a top view of the platform, as well as a rough drawing of its movement. If you look at it at a certain angle, it looks like a fan without the middle part connecting the blades together. There's also some jot notes on the page too, but probably not all of them are easy to read. By the way, the post you made about a month ago about Death Egg Zone with you describing the fork-lift like platforms in the level heavily inspired my idea for these "fan-platforms", with the main difference being that the ones in the actual game move vertical and mine move horizontal!
Appreciate your feedback! I have good ideas, I just can't make games! lol
