Well, this was all part of an Idea I (Disguise) had ages ago. A huge tileset pack from J2LC. Of course things went kinda crazy, as I finished Spacey Universe at the speed of light, and uploaded it early to make other sets for the pack (that were FiShY and Darkened Landscape). When those were finished Newspaz couldn’t wait any longer, and uploaded Meza into J2O.
Later on Quist made a set and I uploaded the two finished sets I made to make ANOTHER one. Hehe, it was pretty hectic. So, as the tileset pack stands now it has two tilesets. Alien Space Lab by F Quist and Corrupted Sanctuary by Disguise. We wanted the pack to be bigger, but it seems the timing was all wrong. This will be my last ‘contribution’ to the J2O uploads section, as I am leaving the community, it was fun guys, really. Also, I’d like to thank Quist for all the hard work he put into this, he is truly a BTFH! (not to mention a great set maker) ;-)
[Fquist adds: “I would like to thank Disguise for all the inspiration, the tileset tips and the great time”]
The package contains 4 files:
The “Corrupted Sanctuary” Tileset
The “Alien Space Lab” tileset
A CTF level by Disguise
An example level by Fquist
Alien Spacelab is kind of crap but still useful and Corrupted Sanctuary is Awesome! GJ bro.
Bah. How could I not review this? I’ve had it sitting in my folder for such a long time…
I’ve seen it used a hundred times, I’ve made levels with it, I still think its rux. The texturing is just awesome, the tileset is easy to use, and you could make awesome stuff with it. I love the animations (the moving blocks, the chains, the fire, the flags etc), those look so awesome. It has the important tiles as well. My only complaint is there isn’t too much of a color variety and the tileset could’ve had a larger variety in tiles, since most of the set now consists of stone bricks (although they were done very well). Also, the Carrotus Pole, Jungle Pole, Diamondus Pole, Small Tree, and all the pinball objects other then the Carrot Bump sorta look awful. Water looks fine in 8bit and 16bit. Snow doesn’t look too good but doesn’t look too bad either. Same with the psych pole.Although this is a castle style tileset so I don’t know why people would put in poles anyways, so whatever.
Tiles Included: 9
Color: 8.7 (9.2 – 0.5 for palette problems with events such as pinball)
Overall (not an average): 8.5
Final Rating: 8.8428571 ~ 8.7 (just 0.01 away from 9 ;o)
Alien Space Lab:
Its also a rux tileset, but I don’t like it as much as Corrupted Sanctuary. The textureness and stuff is awesome, but most of this set’s colors are of a dark shade and make it harder to distinguish tiles apart. I don’t like the backround too much (although it does look spacey. Animations are alright, but most of them are pretty small. Tileset isn’t too userfriendly. It has the important tiles (suckers, hurt events etc). Masking is good. Water looks normal in 16bit and slimy green (although it doesnt look too much like water it fits in with the theme and looks cool here) in 8bit. Snow has the same color as most other tiles in this set (dark green) so its a bit hard to see. Pinball pads look alright, and the Carrot and 500 bump look awesome. Carrotus Pole looks sorta ugly but is tolerable, same with the Diamondus pole and Jungle Pole. Psych pole and small tree look sorta sux.
Tiles Included: 8.3
Color: 8.7 (8.5 – 0.2 for color problems + 0.4 because pinball objects and water look rux, snow, diam, carrotus, and jungle pole look OK.
Overall (not an average): 8.2
Final Rating: 8.2857142 ~ 8.2
Corrupted Sanctuary: 8.7
Alien Space Lab: 8.2
=8.45 ~ 8.5
This is a rux pack, with sets you can’t miss out on. A great contribution from FQuist and Disguise (and J2LC) and shouldn’t be missed. Good work, and download reccomendation.
Finally he gets around to uploading it! I’ve had it sitting in my JJ2 folder for a while. Onto tha review:
Eyecandy: Okay, not the eyecandy here is darn awesome! Go ahead, you’re allowed to drool. There are some lovely stone-grain textures on the bricks, with little shadows in the corners and all. There are knights similar to the ones from Epic’s castle sets, but there’s also a mini-armoury type that looks cool, fires, arrows, extra chains – it’s all there. Red and blue-base markers such as the shields, the flags, and the big GpW flags, add an extra, polished finish to it. He’s got a tile for rain, a textured background (which I LOVE!) and (I think), clouds. There are chains for vines, and sharp hooks for…well, hooks, all of which fit the theme of the set. Darn, he’s even added in crushing blocks since I last saw the set! So much eyecandy!!! dies
Disguise has added all the required blocks – destructible blocks (custom made – looks nice ;D), poles that look like rusted nails, crushing blocks and spikes for hurt tiles, all of which look censored good! So much eyecandy! dies
He’s also added in a nice, bumpy-3d ‘Disguise’ logo, as customary, along with a J2LC logo (Quisty’s domain!!!) SSF (dunno what that is, but GUMMI!!!) and so on. He also added a tonne of hilarious mask messages. I must remember to do that if I ever make any sets…so much eyecandy!!!
Question for you Disguise, I’m still alive, why do I need a gamevoice? ;)
But I already live under a mushroom and roll around the floor while barking and flapping my arms. Now how am I supposed to be original? ;)
Those who are confused, read all the hidden messages.
SO MUCH EYECANDY!!! DOWNLOAD THIS SET IF YOU HAVE A BRAIN!!! =D DOWNLOAD RECCOMENDATION IS GO!
NOTE: Further review after, rating may change. Still looking at all these goodies. :)
Huge? this is only 2 levels & tilesets..
The tilesets are good no doubt but not so good I think.
The connections between the ramps and corners in the alien tilset aren’t good.
I love the Corrupted one though, good level (6.7 or so) and the animations and looks of that set are exilent.
You supposed to get an avarige of 8.1 but it’s lowered to 8 because of the ‘huge’ meaning only 2 lvls+tilesets.
I am going to get on to a level with Corrupted Sanctuary now though! great work.
And Wisey, pelase stay and make some more tilesets… :(
First the Corrupted Sanctuary tileset is a great castle tileset, sometimes you get a deja vu from epics castle tileset, but this one is so cool! It has a 3d-ish look and.. ehm.. well, just read defalcons review.
The Alien Space Lab by FQuist is also cool, but not as cool as Corrupted Sanctuary. Its a spacey green tileset, but a bit simple I guess if you know the right effects on your drawing prog. It has all kinds of messages in it like: “You will be assimilated!” and “We are the Borg!” etcetera.
A big 9.2 from me!
Excellent tilesetpack! I like Corrupted Sanctuary the most but Alien Spacelab is also very good (it doesn’t look like a lab though).
Both tilesets have lots of eyecandy and look very 3D-ish as Piccolo said. The textures are well-drawn, there are lots of great animations and you can use the tileset’s for all kind of lvls.
I don’t think I’ll need to write anymore. Download NOW.
Ok, a big review this time.
This tileset is based on an old broken down Castle.
Background – The background would look nice if it had some other castles in the background, and maybe some mountains, but rain + fog + textured background is good enough.
Decoration – For decoration, there is some shields up on the brick walls, some dark shaded bricks to use for inside the castle, some nice animating chains, and some swords and stuff. There is also a torch that can be used to lighten up dark places. I think the set could have done with some more decorations, like a skeleton attached to a wall ( like where an old rabbit prisoner use to be ) and spider webs ( thats right Disguise, I haven’t backed down on wanting spider webs :P ). Oh, and how could I forget, 4 nice flags that can be used in CTF levels to identify which castle belongs to which team. Oh, how could I forget, 2 cute fat knights :P
Accessories – The set contains some wicked flames, and somespikes to use to tourchure Jazz and Spaz ( I think the spikes should be larger, and have blood on them ). The set also has hooks, vines, V & H poles, text sign everything you need for a good level…. exept an exit sign ( so much for his respect towards single player levels )
Basic tiles – There are some nice bricks, a range of fantastic slopes ( I beleave that every set should have more then one slop ) and it also has some nice Wood tiles to add a bit more colour to this tileset.
Animation – Ok, lets see, the set has animating flames, animating Flags, animating chains, and even animating bricks. These animating bricks can be used for all sorts of things, I already have some ideas on using them to make traps in single player levels :D.
Overall- A good tileset, especially for CTF levels, but not so much for Single player levels ( no exit sign )
A sort of green tileset, naturally, I like the idea of the set ( its not to do with my name or nothing ;) )
Background – A stary background, that looks like there has some colour for some reason ( reminds me of gif images :P, or when you do the effect called Noise ). A fantastic Planet, that I haven’t conquered yet!!!!!!!!! *ET starts making up a space ship *
Decoration – Lots and lots and lots of text EVERYWHERE, some normal ground tiles that looks like they have been dented or something, lots of gagets and stuff, some nuclear signs, etc. There is also some nice grey tiles to use for semi background.
Accessories – Lets see, there are destruction blocks, there are some signs for arrows, some V and H poles,suckertubes ( ah, thats something that Disguises set didn’t have ), a hook…..oh, no hook, darn. Well, it has almost everything, and once again, NO EXIT SIGN !!!! Don’t people care about single player levels :’(
Animations – Plenty of little animations, like lights flashing, pointing arrow animation,teleporter lights, other things using katherrays, etc.
Basic Tiles – well, there are about 3 different types of group tiles, they are all green, but different texture. My only objection is that the shading on the slope tiles don’t match up on the normal tiles ( as mentioned by New Spaz as well ). I am happy that you have used 2 types of slopes :)
Overall – Ok, a great set, but its those slopes that really bug me, the shading just makes me angry ( I’m strange, thats why I am an alien :P )
Ok, thats it from me :P
Folks I really dont agree with your ratings, Its definately more then a 9 worth. Two Excelent Tilesets are really a 9.2 Most of you guys here rate also the example lvl, you shouldnt do that. Example levels are never ‘real’ levels. Theyre just a map with al the tiles used in the Tileset. Just ‘how to make’
But anyway about the Tilesets…they just rule! They have both high-quality.
A big DOWNLOAD RECOMMENDATION!!!!!!!! Catch the 9.2!
By the way, really too bad for the Commun. in JJ2 around, jj2 will be down without Disguise Tilesets…
Anyway 3 ‘Hoerays’ for Disguise! YAY YAY YAY
The Corrupted Sanctuary tileset rocks! Unbelievable work!
Need I say more?
Disguisey’s final tileset, I don’t believe it. It’s probably the best and most “epic like” one disguisey has ever made.
The Alien Space Lab is pretty cool. I think this one r00lz, a lot :)
=Puts a shrine for the Wisey=
That r pretty kewl tilesets!!!!!! you can make kewl lvl’s with these tilesets I think.
Great tilesets and nice levels to.
i give this an 9.5!
I’m feeling blown away by Corrupted Sanctuary.. which, I’d say, is one of the best tilesets in existance. So I’m not exactly up to writing a real review. But both tilesets are good, Sanctuary is great.

Wowie. Nice work by Fquist and Disguise. I love that planet in the spacelab, and the up and down moving walls in corrupted sanctuary are great. Download recommedation? Hell yeah.
Eat your lima beans, Johnny.
