Description

This is the 5th hocus pocus tileset. This is the 1st of the 2nd episode.
If people only played the demo they might not be familiar with this tileset. Upon popular demand I added some very cool animations which you can see in the example lev.
Many thanx to testers Violet and Firesword and to Black Ninja for calling me \\\‘foo\\\’ when I needed it the most ;P

It’s the tileset, not the level, Black Ninja..and it’s a great one at that. Next Moo race will likely use this tileset..:D

Another Good conversion from Spoy, it has enough tiles to make a decent level and i’ve noticed a lot of invisable blocks for creating illusions or whatever you have in mind. I wanted to have a long review but theres just not enough material to cover.

So download and enjoy yourself![This review has been edited by Fire Sword!]

Well, after seeing smilar tilesets in action in the Hocus Pocus conversion pack (and earlier “ancestors” of it in the Foo Races series), I must say that I am a fan of this sort of tileset. The 1.44MB file (the exact size of a floppy disk, coincidentally) contains three files. The first is, of course, the tileset. The second is an average demo level. The last file is “Strider” (strider.it), a catchy and somewhat post-techno (if you have any idea what that means, you’ve been listening to too much Cracking Ice) music file that is good but not my favorite. The tileset itself has a red tint, which I did not exactly expect in a Hocus Pocus-themed tileset (most of Hocus Pocus is blue, purple, green, or a combonation of the three.) The standard Hocus Pocus tiles are there, with the wizard, keys, gems, etcetera, etcetera. The tileset comes with everything you would need to make a good platformer-ish puzzle level (to see a great example of one of these, download Violet’s conversion of Hocus Pocus’ first episode, which I gave a 9.5 and a download recommendation.) Also included is the Fooruman (or any wizard for that matter) wizard tiles, the animation that is used when you kill something (you will have to play Violet’s pack to understand what the heck I am talking about.) If for some reason you have the urge to include EvilMike or FireSworD tiles (a hint that this will probably be used for Foo Races) in your level, this tileset provides them. Also, a nice animation of Spotty exploding is the icing on the cake. A very nice tileset that is another great conversion of Hocus Pocus. I am not sure if it is possible to get sick of seeing Hocus Pocus-themed levels and tilesets, but I can not say that I am anywhere close to sick of these great conversions yet. For this very good tileset, I give a score of eight and a download recommendation. Very nice job.

@Black Ninja: you feeling OK? ;P I don’t think this tileset is a 3 tileset.[This review has been edited by Trafton AT]

Interesting, i cant compare the original hocus pocus level 1 and 2 episode 2 because i only have episode 1…..shame

I didnt like it as most of you but didnt hate it as well. Im glad u included the enemies, i never saw them and wascurious about their identity. U also included the main tiles like walls, bricks, gems and cups and things, but some useless animations as well. And some useless tiles, i guess this is ok and a well effort.

Hmm, it’s a conversion (ripped tiles) and it’s not even a good one.. All neccesary stuff missing and stuff. Really odd that tilesets like this sometimes get ratings higher than a 6.

“Hocus Pocus 5” is the fifth (duh) in the Hocus Pocus tileset series. Not as good as its predcessors, it includes Fooruman, an old standby of the series, some reddish block tiles, a strange “new” wizard character, and some miscellaneous stuff. This tileset just seems to be missing something. Still, it’s very good, and I’ll bet dollars to donuts it’s going to be used for Foo Races, so might as well D/L it now rather than when joining a Foo Race server and causing lag to the poor players. =P

This tileset is deemed illegal by the original creators, so I shall not rate it. :D
