Rather cute theme even if the tileset is rather lacking in terms of versatility, especially when in comparison with Mystic Isle 2. The art style is decent overall but a bit inconsistent.

Und wieder mal…yet another tileset from german tileset king mirrow. Its theme is the intact landscape of the world famous “Easter Islands”, which you’ve probably seen somewhere (remember: those large stone heads staring at you etc.). But that’s not the only thing the tileset shows on its about 350 tiles: there are lots of platform structures, vines, spikes, palms, rain and a ship and a sun for the horizon (plus some useful tiles like signs or shooting blocks, but they are simply copied from Epic tilesets). The mask seems to be well-made, too.

The author also included a very short example single player level in his pack: nothing spectacular, but it gives a nice demonstration of what you can do with “Easter Islands”.
Despite the fact i have some tileset where the nice little tracked Monkey Island theme by Stefan Uhlemann fits even better (namely my unreleased and therefore very infamous Monkey Island 2 tileset :-), it’s an okay choice. “Beautiful music”, as mirrow put it above, is a tad overdone here, though.

As a conclusion, i’d like to keep it short: “Easter Islands” is a very good looking tileset and definitely a MUST DOWNLOAD for all your Jazz2 fans and esspecially level builders out there (a low 7.5)!

It’s been a while since i have done any reviewing, been busy and stuff…(yeah right).

But enough of that. The tileset is excellently drawn, easter island hasn’t been thematized as far as I know. There are lots of useful tiles and the whole general purpose is shown well enough.

I particulary liked the ship on the background and the “The curse of monkey island” music (that’s why you get 0.2 extra mir :))

The example level was a bit on the small side though, but hey, there will be new levels soon by the looks of the set ;)

This is a very nice looking tileset, the ground tiles are well draw, so are the huge stone faces :) The ground looks good, the trees look good, could do with some more tiles, maybe some sandy tiles or something. But what needs to be alot better is the background, the warped background is only 6 colours, and it looks too, drawn. The who tileset looks fantastic, and the background just ruins it!

Also, you should add some shading to the sun, its only 1 colour! maybe shade it so it fades to a blue colour or something :) and when the sun goes down, there is always the reflection of it in the water, that would make it look better to, cause the ships look great :)

PS: That music is from Monkey Island 1 or 2 isn’t it :)

I was wowed by this set since the moment I saw the first beta test. It’s amazing. Ok, for a proper review. The tileset looks like a tropical island (hence the name) and has all the tiles you need to make one (including cool looking heads, heheh). Textures are very well drawn, as well as shading, you can see that it’s done professionally. The background looks beautiful! I love the ship, the water and the sun, it’s perfect. Also, as a trick for level makers, you can change the textured background colour (the colour it fades to) to 255 red and 96 green. You’ll have a beautiful reddish sunset :D

The music was a perfect choice. Well, okay, it was my choice, but when I saw the set I knew Monkey Island was gonna fit perfectly with it. Besides, it’ll be a shame to waste it on a beach level, so I hope you like it ;)
—-===Edited===—-
I did NOT rate the music. I just made a comment on it. Lemme clear that up.

For those of you that complain that there aren’t enough nature sets, this is definitley for you! And stop complaining (you know who you are).[This review has been edited by Disguise][This review has been edited by Disguise]

I like this tileset. When I fisrt saw the name I thought ‘eggs and chocolate’ but upon opening the tileset I realised it was a tileset of the actual ISLAND easter island. The graphics are not spectacular, but fits the theme well and gives it a nice stonehendgetypething feel. It’d be good if it had another one of those head statues without a mask, so we can use it for shameless decoation, along with some more trees and rocks and stuff. Also missing is a lack of tiles to put in the foreground and background layers. Perhaps some whitish smoke-type tiles, cause I think they get a bit of fog around there. Perhaps some rain tiles, or a broken/fallen statue. There are no H-poles or V-poles, however, nor is there enough eyecandy in the cave bit. Perhaps adding some plants or holes in the cave wall ala carrotus. Good tileset though, maybe an update can get it an even higher score.

UPDATE: Okay, with the update Mirrow has rectified just about all of the aforementioned problems. The 2nd background has a very nice blue islandy type feel, and can be used for a textured background. The sun tiles look nice and with the correct maniplation of layers can make levels look, as Disguise said, like a sunset.
Mirrow as also added in extra eyecandy tiles, which is good and brings up the rating. ;)The rain and the fog can be used for background and foreground layers now, so levels don’t look bare.

Oh by the way mirrow, I love the water stuff (that is water right?)That is too cool. I’m gonna try an effect like that. ;)

Boring, old, keep it in line review….

BASIC BLOCKS/MASKING:
They’re almost all there. A few missing, but mostly there. The masking is good, except in a few places where it suffers.
1.7/2
LOW DETAIL LAYERS:
Originality rules here, but there could be a little more.
1.5/2
EYECANDY:
Everything looks great, except the shrubbery stuff, which could have used more work.
1.9(2)/2
ANIMATIONS/VARIETY TILES:
Great work here. And kind of original. But the spike animation in the cave doesn’t work.
1.5/2
STANDARD TILES:
No H-poles, Hooks, Arrows (except the ones in the cave which only point up), Sucker Tubes (though I guess they wouldn’t fit in, so this doesn’t matter) and the only spikes are on the floor.
1/2

OVERALL:
Great tileset here, though it could use a little work.

EXTRA STUFF:
Nice rank, Aiko. I want one. :P
Disguise, never rate a tileset by the music used in the example level!
Taz, don’t lower your rating because of the Example Level’s length.
Person below this rating that I forgot the name of, don’t rate the Example Level.[This review has been edited by Violet CLM]

Well…A very nice Tileset from Mirrow. It looks kinda “Simple”…more like Microsoft Paint colours, but who cares.
The stuff you’ve made in the Tileset are very Cool. Those Ooga-Booga statues look like the enemies in Mario Land :-) Uhm…I think the Tileset is very good, alltough It’s kinda small, but it has good masking. O yeah I’ve forget the example level…the level is very good. It uses all the tiles of the tileset. So you could rate it a 10.
But anyway a Download Recommendation.
And a 7.7 for the Tileset.

Great choice of muzik! Monkey Island rulez!! This tileset is very original, and i love the bg layers! The boat that sails in the background is VERY good, and the sea works buetifly! This tileset deservs a 10, which it will get. The rain is sorta strange, but the extra points from the bg layers make up for it.
