My scan showed no new Custom Level Questz ... perhaps some of the Battlez are new to us ... you would know that. If there is anything new (to us!) it would help if we could locate the source and add some to our collection.
The videos of Battlez are all Standard ones... The only Custom Levelz not published on our forum that I found are on Teo's playlist. They are his own designs, though they'd require updates to bring them to modern standards. So no official releases for now.
Thanks for the shoutout, swietymiki. I just made a recording of Rocky Pyramidz and added it to the playlist as I realized that I hadn't covered that one yet (though I couldn't get a PERFECT score - it's been way too long). I managed to get Gruntz running on Windows 10 via the same method I used before and so far it seems to be working fine.
The other two levels (Icy Quest and Strong Defense) do not have their own pages here. I never submitted them since they were more or less just mapping practice, certainly not really worth anyone's time.

I recorded a couple of short videos showcasing some of the less known features of Gruntz. These are of lower quality than my walkthroughs so I set them as "unlisted". You'll only be able to view them from links below:
Testing Giant Rocks and other stuff. Helpbox says: "Whatever you do, please don't break that giant volcano. Our artists put a lot of effort into making it and they would probably be pretty mad if you broke it. Thanks again for your cooperation. Sincerely, the Gruntz level design team."
That's what you can do by modifying the game's ATTRIBUTEZ.TXT file. Anyone who played Battlez will tell you that's not how a normal game looks like.
Messing around with a level's tile properties. No TileSecretTriggers were used in the creation of this video.

It appears that the 100+ videos long Custom Levels playlist (recorded by an unknown player from Russia) has been removed. When I asked him what happened, he said that he'd like to re-record them with higher quality (on a new computer I guess). Unfortunately, he abandoned his efforts after recording a couple of Standard Levels.
One of the more notable videos lost was several parts long Zone 1 playthrough.
