The amount of art in a Platforming Level is heavily dependent on the level itself. Some Platforming Levels have the level design bend around the minigames, while others will have minigames wrapped around art. The choice is up to the creator(s).
The goal of Platforming Levels, like many other types of levels, is to reach the end. Here, this is done by having the player navigate the map. Platforming levels are almost always able to be completed solo. Platforming Levels can be crafted to tell the player a story, either through the use of art or Signs. They can also be focused on providing an enjoyable playing experience through well-crafted minigames.
