First of all, Im not going to give you a extra high rating because your my friend, but this is definately worth a 8.

Ok, i think most of the people who downloaded this might know why it is called ‘Shaped’ Wonders, well take a good look at the lvl. If you really look good around im sure you will see this level is pretty different then all other levels on j2o. You see strange shaped tiles or ground. Well personally I dont like that so much ;P But since this is totally something els then as usuall It gets a ok rating from me. Anyway I wont mess much around with the rating because its one of your first levels, so, eat the 8! Download Recommendation and Well done.

I think most reviewers here has written completely messed up reviews and they also give way too high ratings if you compare it with what they say but since I’m in no position to stop that I’ll just have to shut up and write my own UN-BIASED :-P review…

Right. Shaped Wonders is, as Umba mentioned, his first J2o release. It’s in no way a smash hit although it has some very impressive points. First of all, the music choice fits the lvl perfectly and it adds to the…how should I say this…“spirit” of the lvl. ;-D

The ambient lighting is also cool and it makes the lvl look nicer. Also, Shaped Wonder boosts some pretty eyecandy without making it too confusing although I would prefer a little less blue and a little more red. I also prefer this lvl to have at least some foreground layer eyecandy (with the exception of those large moving tubes). Btw, there is way too little of the eyecandy, Umba.

Weapons placement is fairly good. Nothing special here. The ammo is placed sensibly although there are too little in some places and too much in others. Your future lvls should be more balanced, Umba.

Now, most of the previously mentioned things are good points of Shaped Wonders. The gameplay is good too, of course, but it has some pretty bad and weak places too. First of all, there are two dead ends in the lvl. Umbaman didn’t want to change those cause they’re so small but if you look carefully, you can’t see the dead ends while running so when you do see them, it’s too late and some berserking rookie jazzer blasts you into a couple zillion pieces. The springs and one ways are well placed though and there are a couple nice secrets.

Shaped Wonders is a really good lvl by Umbaman and every decent jazzer should take a good look at it. The major problem here is the deadends and the lack of eyecandy.

I’ll give this lvl a 7.5 and a download recommendation.

Cheers,

White Rabbit.

EDIT: Hah! I got the longest review. :-P[This review has been edited by White Rabbit]

This level ruxors.

It’s a nice level using the Sirius tileset by Agama. The music and gameplay are very well. The eyecandy can better, there are bugs. It’s a but cinfusing too. But overall a very nice level made by Moo-man Umbaman.

Download this.

Shaped wonders is a level I stumbled upon while playing TSF, hosted by Umbaman himself. Now let’s get started with another very long review by MaGoo…

Eyecandy- For a tileset that isn’t used much, I can’t say that much about the eyecandy. Although some parts are definitely not used properly which makes the level look a bit… trashy. There are many ups and downs, curves and such. I don’t think there are many places where you can get stuck, well I never found any. There are some animations in the level, although they seemed to be misplaced.

Gameplay- I found a few gameplay flaws in this level, first of which was deadends. I found some deadends, with no ammo or anything to make the empty space useful. I suggest you always make some way out of a deadend, it can be anything from a spring to a sucker tube. Use of springs was okay, I can’t say much about that. The floating event was well used throughout the level, although I don’t think those pinball things at the top of the level were nessessary.

Weapons/Placement- The amount of weapons used was pretty good. Not too much, and not too little. Also, well scattered throughout the level, in many varietys. The amount and placement of the ammo wasn’t disappointing at all.

I find that Shaped Wonders is an average level for the average Jazzer. It can be a fun level, depending on what you like. Download recommendation, sure, not bad for an average level.
