This is my very first level.It is a short,but i think it’s good but i am a female.
I liked the level.
It bothers me how many levels you can beat by just running through before the enemies can get past you. You can get to the boss in, say, 15 seconds and beat the boss in about 30 more seconds. Way too easy. Try making a level that is not completely straight. Make it longer. And make it harder.
As far as weapon placement goes, you can’t really tell how good it is. There isn’t much level design to work with. The shields are useless because they are placed in places where there are no use for them. There are a few secrets, but they aren’t hidden enough. Use the other layers to hide it.
Which brings me to eyecandy. Not exactly a pretty level. There are probably one or two pieces of eyecandy. The lights are just there. They don’t really make it better.
By the way, being a girl doesn’t make the level worse, or make your level-making ability worse.
EDIT: Whoops. I meant 4.2/10, not 5.2. My bad.[This review has been edited by KRSplat]

Alas! I was going to give this the rating it deserved, but then I saw the beautiful entreaty of “I am a female” and my heart was lost. Now I must give this a 10 so that she will go out with me! Because that’s what females do on J2O!
..er. Sorry. Please don’t incite sexism. I’m sexist enough already, and I’m sure other people don’t need the provocation either.
GRAPHIC QUALITY: This is one of those levels which tries to completely sail through the eyecandy category on the strength of a nice looking tileset. Sadly, you have to actually be able to use the tileset, and that factor is not readily apparent. There is very little deviation in the walls or background (layer 8 isn’t textured – this tileset supports textured mode, right? Mirrow, have you been making bad tilesets again?), and there’s not much else to speak of. No ground – the whole thing takes place in what I assume is supposed to be a castle. No background eyecandy. Essentially no layer 4 eyecandy except for Disguise’s head. Disguise is a great guy, but his head is not proper eyecandy for a level.
Pros: No glaring tile bugs.
Cons: Nothing beyond the basics, too much Disguise, a few layer 3 problems.
LEVEL DESIGN: “Run to the right” is a good description of the design fo this level. It is not as bad as that Diamondus race level where you never have to press any keys besides run and right, but it’s pretty bad. I timed myself and beat the entire level (including the boss – been a while since I saw someone make Bilsy difficult… come on, people!) in less than thirty seconds, and I count too fast. This would automatically get a low mark, but it’s somewhat saved by the fact that the main time spent playing this level is spent finding the secrets. Admittedly the secrets are mostly layer 3 hidden holes in the floor, but there are still secrets, which is kind of interesting. I didn’t have nearly enough coins, for example, though I’m not positive there are actually so many coins in the level.
Pros: The secrets are a nice touch – keep that in mind for your next levels and they should become quite enjoyable.
Cons: Still too much of a straight line. Add some curves, corners, whatever strikes your fancy. Fun tricks like moving platforms. Spikes (the one place where there were spikes was cool, I’ll grant).
GAMEPLAY/FUN FACTOR/REPLAY VALUE: It occurs to me a great deal of “Level Design” was actually spent describing the gameplay. Oh well. As I sort of said, the gameplay of this level in itself is not very enjoyable, it’s the many detours that make up the prime interest value. Obviously this is not done so well as it is in levels such as Tomb Rabbit – Central Cave, but that’s a very high standard in the first place. Sadly, despite the secrets, this level doesn’t really become a level you’d have any particular desire to play more than once, unless you’re an insane overrating J2O reviewer (naming NO names).
Pros: Did I mention the secrets? Yes, I did. Oops.
Cons: Just not very interesting.
ORIGINALITY: I liked the part with the spikes. It’s not quite original, but it does look fairly professional (aside from the graphics, but that’s another story). Besides that, this level is pretty much dullsville. The only bit that interested me was the float ups – a few more spikes and a little more room and that could become somewhat interesting.
EVENT PLACEMENT: There are way too many goodies. Coins, shields, ammo – you name it. There’s a secret at the start of the level containing some ammo which never shows up again in the level and you have no reason to use. There aren’t enough enemies to deserve the ammo, but I suppose that’s a good thing. Too many enemies can be a crippling point for a level. I saw no real event bugs – no destruct scenery on un-animated tiles or stuff like that.
Pros: Decent enemy placement.
Cons: Way too many goodies. Advice: study other levels, particularly the Formerly a Prince episode and anything by Chandie. Avoid anything by Blade or Willie in this regard.
OVERALL (not an average): This is not a bad level, but it is below average. There appears to have been some sort of story to this level, in combination with another level(s?) that was not included in the .zip. Huh. Warn us next time.
Pros: Eyecandy’s not BAD, nor is most anything else.
Cons: Somewhat dull, over too soon.
On a side note, I completely forgot you were a female while reviewing this. ANGST!

HAH! Row odin thinks Tiger lily is a new Evilmike… How dumb can u get, comparing Evilmike The Great to tiger lily the FEMALE! lol! 7.7 is also an overrate! Oh well here is my review:
Like violet said no glaring bugs…. but not too much of a good eyecandy, disguise’s head makes the lvl’s eyecandy better! No textured background… no layers 7,6,5,2,1, oh well at least u used layer3. The tiles are all the same type, which is bad though this is ur first lvl, i cant make my review all kind for that. so the eyecandy is below average but it can be better in a few ways…
The lvl is quite short and it can be fun, and actually its better timing urself but this lvl is good in ways, interesting secrets but the coins are in the secret… so u must find the secret to get Seeker PU which coins get u, not many ppl put coins and rabbits that warp u but this lvl did, this is another good thing, this lvl is far tooo short even though u r female, i still think it is short.
Pickups: The placement wasnt great but wasnt bad here it is above average… that ups my rating. but still it can be a lot better, try lvls with good eyecandy and placement for examples to hlp u…
Other stuff: the music doesnt really suit the lvl, and the good part of the music comes a bit near the end even if u collect everthing. Also this is a really wierd lvl name… “Goody Two Shoes”. Also there is no nxt lvl setting, which is kinda annoyin. one good point is that there is lighting effects and average event placement.
overall: not too good, not too bad… try and shape ur lvls nxt time and make it bigger! Odin’s review shouldnt really count, as he is just wierd and he likes crap lvls not that any good lvls are bad, it is just that Odin thinks it deserves 7.7, and voilet thinks 4.2 which is more reasonable. If voilet thinks my orbitus lvl deserves a 7.2, then this deserves a 3.0…

Welcome to the JJ2 community. Please leave your ego, soul, and sanity at the front desk.
Here at J2O we are not racist, nor are we gender-oriented. We have a good amount of men and women in here.
One sec, let me review the level…
[Please hold, your upload is important…]
Not bad, for your first try. 8 of 10.
You used lighting! Good for you. Though the background isn’t textured. Oh,well. 7 of 10.
Music is there, but the next level setting doesn’t work, because I don’t have the level. Oh, well. 7.5 of 10.
Hype is the rating before I rated. There is no rating, so this is void.
Great level, for a newcomer. Try making battle levels. I think we see a new EvilMike here! 9 of 10.
8 + 7 + 7.5 + 9 = 31.5 / 4 = 7.875 = 7.7
Keep making levels! You can only get better!

this lvl SUX. the lvl way too short and the lvl is a straight one. There is a lot of ammo at the beginning and there is barely any later on. it takes ariund……………………… 50 seconds to finish the whole lvl, and who cares that u r a girl. As far as we know you could be a leprachaun.. no offence. BTW The Odin do you always give bad lvl’s high rating or is it because you like TIGER LILY?
