SideStep is a Demon level by ChaSe97. Though rated as an Easy Demon, it is considered to be misrated by many, being described as a Hard Demon. It is the first level in the Demon Gauntlet.
The level starts with a simple mini-cube. After completing a few basic jumps, the player transitions into a rather tricky mini-ship, which constantly changes gravity (reminiscent of Cycles) and size. A mini-ball is next, attempting to confuse you by putting spikes in places you seemingly must dodge, but in fact are harmless.
The music drops, and the player begins to rapidly change form from wave, ufo, cube, ship, ball, wave, cube, wave, and finally ball, with each form lasting no more than a couple of seconds. After the last ball, the player transitions into a transitory cube, and then jumps into another deluge of form transitions- although the transitions are a bit slower this time. Here, the ships and the ufos need quite a bit of straight-fly skill and dexterity to pass. The level then enters dual cube mode in an already confusing segment, with moving blocks and constant size change. After a while, the player enters dual ball mode, changing to same-gravity a couple of times. A fast ship is next, requiring some sense of straight fly to pass; a fast and tricky cube follows, which soon changes into a fast wave, then a fast ufo, then a fast wave, then a fast cube, and then, finally, a slow ship. After a couple of tricky spike-dodging, the level ends, with pixel art of the level's name and the creator's name mashed together.
