Description

Blade’s and Wille’s brand new production introduces you six high quality single player levels with high quality tilesets (Agama’s Heaven, Egypt and Swamps & Dethman’s 7th Lava Fall). Pack includes also 3 custom music tracks. My personal opinion: they ROCK!

Please note: Because reduced .zip file size, the pack doesn’t include the tilesets, and Egypt level’s music piece(midnight.s3m). The tilesets are so popular, that everyone has to have them.

Enjoy the pack.

(Note: the download now contains all necessary files – no need to download anything else! – Stijn)

I actually played through this last night right before bed, and really enjoyed it. This is a short and sweet level pack, all the levels are very fun and high quality. They’re very straightforward, which is something I liked a lot. There were no obnoxious puzzles. Only complaint is some Spaz biasing with getting goodies. I highly reccomend this.

This is interesting, because Blade wanted Cell to re-upload his CTF pack, and now Cell wants Blade to re-upload his SP pack.

Do me a favor and re-upload your stuff because I still can’t download Cell’s Evil CTF pack beta 2 v0.87 and now I’m missing music from Blade’s SP pack!

Very high rating, for some of the best single player levels that I have ever seen! These levels indeed use some of the best tilesets ever, including three of Agama’s four tilesets and Dethman’s 7th lava fall set. The levels themselves are well-tiled and full of eyecandy. The layouts are excellent! The difficulty starts pretty low, but the levels get harder. (But not impossible). They are full of secrets, and areas to explore. These levels have an overall great feeling to them, and are very fun to play. Good job, guys!

Might I recommend naming the episode? Great episodes go down in Jazz 2 history, such as ‘Another Story’, and ‘Tomb Rabbit’, and many others. They all have names. Is this to be remembered only as ‘The Episode’? I would also have liked some kind of storyline, but it is not needed. Overall, this is a definite must download!!! These are some truly great single player levels.

These are ok, but they’re not superb. They need more trigger crates, for example. And there are far too many goodies – I got a sugar rush on almost every level, and two sugar rushes on two of the levels.

The design’s pretty good, very unusual.[This review has been edited by Violet CLM]

Atlas: it means you have the wrong set. There’s also an updated version 1.1 of the Heaven set here on J2O.

You really have to include the sets needed for the pack. Sure Agama’s are possibly the best custom sets out there but that doesn’t mean everyone has them installed. I had actually but I reinstalled Jazz recently. Having to search for the sets before I can start is HIGHLY annoying.
I downloaded Agama’s sets though and tried the pack anyway. To my suprise I got another missing tileset error in the third lvl…

Anyway, my impression from the first two levels is that they were very well-made but lacked direction and purpose. I think it would have been more interesting with some sort of story.

This pack really really rules, I love the way Blade detailed the eyecandy, and the levels contains loads of secrets and coins to collect.

Good lvl pack with intersting levels. The tileset choosage, the enemys the ammo, the other goodies.. everything is super! It’s good that you had chosen good tilesets with good graphics.

It would be better if you would build 6 levels and use three tilesets, it would be like a real jj2 episode!! [This review has been edited by SD]

To sum it all up, this pack is horribly overrated. “The Episode” does feature six levels, all of them are decent. The problem is though, that they are “only” decent. In every level, you have to collect stuff, kill enemies, find the exit, then in the next one collect stuff, kill enemies, find the exit. Come to think of it, the other levels aren’t different either. The levels are not bad, but they’re just boring. To quote Ninja Dodo, “Why would anybody want to play what they played over and over again in numerous other episodes?” What “The Episode” fails in is creativity. There is nothing, really nothing which is different from the standard episodes. The standard episodes have a story though, aswell as some puzzle elements, and other stuff, like the Cats in the Psych levels. This one is just straight forward exit-finding, and come to think of it – in the last level you have to defeat Bubba in another lame arena. To make it even worse, that is totally easy. Neither the bad guys feature a challenge, nor Bubba does. I started playing with three lifes, and ended up having six, which means there must be something wrong. The only difficult thing is to find all the coins for the coin warp as there are thousands of hidden ways, but that doesn’t make up for the fact that it is still very easy to beat the Episode.

The best thing about The Episode is the eyecandy, which is very well. I especially liked the last last level, which looked amazing, and there weren’t any tilebugs either. That’s were the 7.7 comes from, otherwise it would’ve been even lower.

Still, the levels get boring very fast, and there isn’t even a storyline.

If you like uncomplicated, easy single player levels, then this is for you. For me, it’s just too easy and standard.

Still, I give it a download recommendation, as I maybe have been a bit rude.

For some reason I like these levels very much! They are just great! The Tilesets are used very good. Top class high quality levels. I think these level are the best SP levels which use those Tilesets of Agama etc. Now the music is included you can enjoy even more the greatness of this pack! Well I think this is really a DOWNLOAD RECOMMENDATION WORTH! Catch the 9!Well Done!
