this is the new version of my Jaws tileset. this one isn’t yellow, it has lots of animations, lots of animals, and lots of eyecandy, and now it has palmtree’s,a swimming turtle, a dophin, a tiny squid, a sea gull, a surfboard bitten in half, and lots more!
Having never seen the original, I have no idea if this is an improvement over the old.
Anyway, the tileset gives you one basic type of ground (featureless brown stuff)), which require lots of flipped tiles to work, so don’t expect having destruct scenery secrets in any great quality. You can put several things in it, like toxic waste, bones, and censored.
As seems to be Jaws’ habit, there is a great deal of little animal animations in this tileset, from a puffer fish, to a sea gull, to a big shark whose mouth you can go inside. (It seems unable to chomp closed on you, though) There are trees, umbrellas, a lifeguard station, a blue flag (but no red one), rocks, rain, and other stuff.
It also contains stuff for stomp and destruct blocks, in several forms. Also vines, and one of those vertical poles you can climb up (I guess).
Now more bad stuff.
The textured background included in the tileset doesn’t work. Also, which isn’t good for a beach tileset, the water doesn’t look all that good. Have some nice blue gradient for 176-208, I advise. The graphics on some of the stuff are kind of bad, and as I said, the ground requires flipped tiles. The layer 4 background has to be put in layer 5 and there isn’t any background eyecandy other then rain and lightning (which is all very well, but where are the rolling sand dunes? The city of unsuspecting minor characters?).
Overall, while Jaws (new version) has some nice features, it also has quite a few problems. An 8, because the swimming turtle is really rather cool. Fix those bugs.
you can see the old version on Jazz2online to.
Piccolo aka SoulFire said: There aren\‘t v- or h-poles…
But there are v- and h-poles in the tileset, and it\‘s true that you can get stuck in a few thing.
But maybe I\‘m going to make a beter version (again), with some randomness in the sand maybe a little bit more shadow and a RED flag, and ofcourse lots more![This review has been edited by _Jaws]
WOOOOOOOOPPEEEEEEHH! The old “Jaws tileset” was lol, but this one rules more.
First the bad things:
It’s a tileset you MUST play in 16bit, or the water and the textured background look very ugly. Some minpoints for that.
Some animatiosn like the sea-hedgedog aren’t bad, but they are only two tiles. Perhaps you can makein the new new version them first without spikes and then with or something.
The nice things: The textured background is nice in 16bit. The coral & co. rule. I love the swimming turtle and you drawed the animals all very nice.There is some toxic, a dinosaur, a seagul, a seahorse, a octopus, a sandcastle, a seastar, some fishies, a palmtree, a toy sailboat with a sail that looks like a shark, a really shark that you can swim the mouth, and some layer 7/1/2/6 eyecandy. Is taht enough? Okay. A 8.
ITS MATCH BETTER THAN THE OLD JAWS TILESET NOT YELLOW ANYMORE MORE ANIMATIONS AND YOU CANT GET STUCK IN THAT SHARK ANYMORE

I remember the old set and this is definitely a huge improvement.
The sand color is much nicer now. It was originally lime yellow now it’s a much more eye-pleasing orange. Jaws has added loads more stuff to bury under the sand – very nice – and also added quite a few excellent animal animations. I also really like the half-eaten surfboard and the blue flag. It would be great if you could add a red flag as well though. That way you could use those flags for CTF levels.
One thing that bugs me a bit is that the lines on the ground are too straight. This would be normal for a building, but not for a beach. If you’re ever going to update the set, add some randomness there please.
I don’t think tilesets should have all tiles mirrored as it’s a waste of space. The flip tile button is there for a reason and it only creates an error if you use it with a trigger animation. Some things can benefit from mirroring but certainly not ground…
An 8.2 from me.[This review has been edited by Ninja Dodo]
First off: this OVERRATED IMHO.
This will be a short review:
The animals are nice, sometimes very nice.
But the rest of the tileset is lacking much…
Not enough shading…
The textured background doesnt work in 8-bit…
Everything except the animals is very, very simple…
There aren’t v- or h-poles…
There IS pretty much eyecandy.
erm… here’s the conclusion:
The tileset has nice to cool eyecandy, but lacks texture, beauty and all the needed things.
(btw, I know this review suxors, but IT’S just what I think of it. I didn’t feel like typing a whole 500 word story, I’ll save that for trafton.)[This review has been edited by Piccolo aka SoulFire]
