CTF-SS My first CTF level ever. Made with the swamp tileset of Agama.
Newbie, you gave this a 9.7 cause you hate CTF?! Shouldn’t it be the other way around?!
Oh well, nm. Let’s get on with the review.
Southern Swamp bu BunnyElmer is a CTF lvl of medium size using the amazing tileset Swamp’s of the Sleeping Jaguar by Agama. Because Elmer chose this tileset, I was expecting lots of great eyecandy and some nice ideas.
However, I was vrey dissapointed when I found out that the “nice ideas” were just a whole truckload of platforms placed in a otherwise empty space. Also, the “great eyecandy” was non-existent.
Yes, Southern Swamp has good weapons placement with ammo placed sensibly around the lvl and there are some nice carrot positions too. But the trouble is, that’s all. The eyecandy is very, very bad. There are a couple jaguars, bushes, water pools and tree trunks but that’s all. The foreground layers consist of only boring rain and the whole lvl has too much emptiness in it. That makes the lvl look rather boring and dull.
The gameplay is also bad although it’s all right in some places. The best part of the gameplay is the placement of springs, I think although the rest falls below the average standard I expect of lvl’s. First of all, there are three dead ends in the lvl. One at the blue base, one at the red base and one at the bottom-left corner of the lvl. They are unbelievable annoying…
Secondly, Southern Swamp is too Jazz-unfriendly. Spaz can double-jump up with platforms while Jazz has to use springs which is slower. The seeker powerup can only be reached by double-jumping too so Jazz has to shoot the powerup with bouncers and only get 20 bullets out if it. Not good, not good…
I opened the lvl with hopes of a high quality lvl and closed it with a bad rating in mind. Sry, Elmer, but this only get an 5.5 from me. Try harder nxt time and make yours lvls more Jazz friendly, with less dead ends and more eyecandy. No download recommendation.
Eat your lima beans, Johnny.
