Wow, this is good.

Eyecandy: 4.5/5
Its not like the eyecandy in Jman’s Carrotus:To the max, buts its not confusing and its well-done, no errors. The backround was proper, the ground was proper, so where the vines. The setting of the level was basically both inside and outside, mixed together as if they’re one. Anyways, great eyecandy, although i just felt it was missing something, dunno what thoughh. Wait, i found one eyecandy bug, but its barely noticable and doesnt affect the level much, so ill leave it.
GamePlay:5/5 Great gameplay, springs and pumkins for climbing. Good bridge use. Although you may get a divide by zero when playing this online, because bridges tend to do that. But its not your fault, so.. Didnt stumble on any dead ends, it was also quite easy to travel and navigate through the level, and it was quite fun too.
Tile Placement: Excellent, carrots placed well, pumkins placed well. This is a superior level with great tileset use. Its basic and fun, but not too creative like Violets Magic Carrot land. Anyways, great tileset use, looked like he planned the level out first. 5/5
Other: Well, the music could of been different, there are many musics out there who\ich may be better than the original carrotus music. The ammo placement was good, 4.8/5. I felt that the pepper spray powerup and the taoster powerup were a tad bit too close to each other, but the ammo placement was done in a good fun fashion, though i felt certain sectors of the level needed more ammo. Other than that, my bias is there, that single levels shouldnt get higher than a 9. If this was in a pack with similar based levels, id rate this a 9.7 or maybe even a 10! But its a simgle level, a GREAT and FUN and WELL MADE single battle level. Pretty close to my limit for single levels, but EXCELLENTLY and SUPERIORLY made. Anyways, if any of you still dont get me, just download this.

Wow, great lvl! The eyecandy is very good and you’ve used many layers (if not all of them?). The weapons placement is also pretty good and it’s easy to get them without having to do impossible jumps as in some other not so good lvls. Powerups placements are also good and some are guarded by springs or “natural” barriers ;-) which can make it difficult to get them although finding them is e-z-p-z cause of the excellent structure and gameplay of the lvl. No annoying obstacles whatsoever and springs in the right place with some pumpkin platforms makes it very easy to hop around in this lvl. I would give this lvl an 9.5 really but then there are things that stop me from doing it. Actually it’s only one thing: the ammo is so sparse it looks like the beautiful planet of Carrotus is on rationing!! Also, some of the pumpkin platforms are quite small so newbies might find it difficult to navigate in the lvl. Also, (I didn’t cut any off scores for this) the background with the waterfall, don’t you think the waterfall is going a little bit too fast martin?

Oh well, who cares anyway? Download this incredible lvl NOW.

Yes this is really great. Eyecandy, placement, layer use. Some more weapons would be nice but that doesn’t really matter generally. The size is good (not too small). Some bridges, yes overall a perfect level.

This shows how JCS should be used :-)

W00! AWESOME Level!
I was one of the beta testers from the original version of this, so I’ve known it’s coolness for quite some time.

My only complaint was the fact that it has too few weapons, but oh well. Good job marin. :-)

Very awesome level, martin!
Has great layout and no eyecandy errors.
Only reason why this isn’t a 10 is because it’s not alot of ammo in it.

Great job, keep it up!

I felt Ice and TnT could only get in the way of useful weapons in battle
as for Electro Blaster most of the eye candy was done in the 3rd layer
and it would only show the gap’s in-between layers.

I would like to say that this is the last level I sent to Jazz2city before
it closed a great site so I’d like to dedicate this level to them.

And also to ET who helped me with the Beta, yes it was finished in time. :)

"Carrotus Squash" is another attempt by martin to make the perfect level. And really: you won’t find any bugs in this battle level. martin actually is a level scientist. He spends hours and hours hunting for the smallest design or tile bugs.
The design is awesome and makes it very playable. Eyecandy and weapon placement are very good, too.
Unfortunately, this level has nothing that usually gives me a reason to rate it 9 (which is, as you may know, my highest rating so far) like great selfmade custom tilesets, a large amount of levels in a pack or, very important, exceptional creativity! Oh and by the way, and i still like 5 Alive best. Town definitely beats Carrotus :-)
Nevertheless i respect martin as one of the most dedicated levelmakers ever. He shows what is possible with Epic tilesets.
And of course, i recommend to DOWNLOAD "Carrotus Squash" immediately.

An extremely well made level.

Very good use of the layers and the Carrotus tileset. A good selection of weapons for battle, that are well placed around the level.
Movement upwards can be a little chalanging, but overall this is an excelent level.

This was the first custom level to be hosted on the Battle Server.

My only problem is that there’s not enough ammo, and too many powerups. Also I like vines.
Still, a good level overall.

Hi, I’m back from Zeriaus ( my home planet )

I think this level ( before I edited it ) was one of the best levels I had ever seen. It set a good example on how to use the Carrottus tileset. Sadly I have forgotten the password for it :(.

Btw Magoo, what mistakes did I leave in there, I though I had fixed them all up. Oh dear, what if I lose my part-time job of being a beta tester : -( [This review has been edited by et]

One of the best battle levels I ever seen.
That waterthing on the background(I forgot the right word because I am dutch) thats running at 70 frames per seconde. Man, thats fast.
I havent seen any – points.
It is very cool and you never get bored.
Shoot your oppents at full speed, there are many fastfires. Oh yeah maybe that is the – point, there are 6 fastfires at one place.
But you also can be happy with a 9.2, can you? Download very reccomend!

Carrotus Squash is the best Carrotus level ever and the best single level because it only have one level this download. And about the level: Of course it`s very good thats why i said that it is the best Carrotus level ever. And the tileset Carrotus is one of my favourites too. Eyecandy in this level is very good. Gameplay rocks too and of course the ammo placement must be good if it gets a high rating. And there are some power-ups in here and i think you worked very long at this one. This is no 1 hour level of course. So now finally i give my rating. And the rating is a 9,5

This is a good level, but it is far too overrated, in my opinion. This would have an appropriate rating for the time it was uploaded, but now this would probably get lower, I would have given a 7 or something but this is good for the time uploaded and that is what I am concentrating on. So here is my review: Eyecandy: The eyecnady in the background is normal (as usual) and isn’t different or extremely original, sadly. However on the front layer or the foreground there are thorns nearly everywhere, which is quite cool. And there no Eyecandy bugs, or were there? There were lighting effects and caves which are really cool. Gameplay: The gameplay is kind of good: Good: 1) Lots of springs 2) Easy to run apart from sometimes 3) Big level 4) Some parts are Jazz-based and some are Spaz-based. 5) Good structure Bad: 1) Few dead-ends 2) Annoying jumps 3) Very Platformy 4) Some pointless springs. Well enough of that… Placement: The ammo was placed nicely, apart from some annoying parts. The carrots are placed greatly and some areas have bad placement. Apart from that it is good. Again, i may be an idiotic underrater, or overrater to other levels but i don’t care, it is my opinion that this should get a lower rating that im giving, but oh well.

Okay… it’s a okay level to begin with. It’s nice, has lots of space, and good weapon placement… kinda.

EYECANDY: 7/10
Well… it looks good, but also kinda boring. There aren’t any landmarks or anything to distinguish where you are, and too much looks the same. Even so, there aren’t any real problems with it, so I’d say it’s good.

WEAPON PLACEMENT:7/10
You know, I would love to see way less seekers in the game. They require almost no skill to use, and if you fire enough of them it’s hard to miss. There was a seeker powerup right where I started. Bad idea in my opinion. There are also lots of other powerups. As for normal ammo, it had good placement.

ORIGINALITY: 7/10
I’m not seeing anything that sticks out here. I mean, it looks very bland… the eyecandy I mentioned was okay, but it looks very much like standard carrotus. The level is very platform oriented, which I haven’t actually see that much of.

GAMEPLAY: 7.5/10
I liked how the trees blocked the ammo, which was good because it added a bit more stratagy. The level is very platform oriented, which can become quite a nuisance at times. Anyone who gets the bouncers can sit on a high platform and shoot down at people. People could retaliate with seekers, but I think it would have been been better not to have either weapon there.

OVERALL: 7.2/10
An okay level, but I honestly wouldn’t play it because there’s nothing that really stands out about it.

DOWNLOAD RECCOMENDATION: Iffy.
Sure, if you’re low on battle levels, but there is better out there. Sorry, but I really can’t say either way.
