This is my entry for Disguise’s contest, which ends today.
Please remember, that the non-expanded version only could use 16 colors, and only 80 tiles.
The snow, pinball, water, and textured background is fixed in the expanded version.
Anyway, enjoy/hate it.

Please make longer reviews or it isn’t a really review. Anyway, here’s the review:
Dark Marshland (without ex):
This is a really mini tileset of 80 tiles (10 × 8). It haves all needed tiles, destruct blocks, arows, and vines and hooks. Also some 6&7 thingies. The music fits really well with it. The tileset itself is a blue tileset, dark blue, with golden things in it. There are some (Uh, blue) sukckers in it who i like, and some mountains and clouds fit the layers 6 and 7 and perhaps 5. I don’t rate this tileset, you maked a expansion who i rate now.
Dark Marshland EX:
This tileset don’t have the golden things on the paths, but have blue instead of gold. There are the same suckers, background eyecandy and there is now a lot nicer textured background. The music of it dont fit so really well with it. Barf. This tileset isnt so big too, but it’s double so much like the first one. The ground haves worms in it, bones (how orginal) and some plants. The worm is animated. There is a animated puff of smoke, i really dont know what it means, but it’s a puf of smoke so that’s always lol. There’s a warp thingie like in many tileset like Mez, the animated circle. You’ll also see a moon and stars for layer 6 and 7, or just layer 4.. There’s a orginal Thanks to Disguise and Made by Moonblaze sign, wich lol because you cant see the Thanks to Disguise sign in the example level, the Moonblaze sign is standing in front of it. The hook is nice, it’s one like in Agama’s Egypt tileset, a rope with a little woodstock on it. There is also a invisible masked tile. I like the grave-like Exit, text and water (?) sign. The wall is climbable so you dont need many springs iin levels with this tileset. The poles are blue with golden blobs on it. That was all, i think this is a little tileset without bugs, so download reccomedation.[This review has been edited by Taz]
I am very excited about Disguise’s contest. From the various tilesets I have seen come out of it, none of them is anything but excellent. And this tileset by Moonblaze is no exception. “Dark Marshland” is not, despite the name, really a marshland. Rather, it seems like to be a dark, slightly swampy, forest. And boy is it dark. Looking at this tileset in JCS, you would think that it would be impossible to see any of the eyecandy if you made a level with it. That is not true at all. Rather, levels using this tileset do come out looking quite dark, but that is not a bad thing. In fact, the demo level I made did not look extremely dark. The few bright tiles more than make up for the somewhat depressing vibe that the dark tiles give off, and it is very well balanced. Moonblaze does the forest tileset type better than anyone, and it definitely shows here. Included are exit signs and pretty much anything you would ever need in a full tileset. There are two tileset versions included. One is Dark Marshland and the other Dark Marshland EX. Note that Dark Marshland is the entry for Disguise’s contest and Dark Marshland EX (EX possibly being extended?) is the full version of the tileset with all the features. This is an excellent tileset, though I recommend you use the EX version as opposed to the tiny one for Disguise’s contest. Still, this is definitely a good entry to the contest, and I hope to see the results. I give the full version an eight point two and a download recommendation. Great job, Moonblaze. Keep the good work up and make more tilesets.
Lets start with the mini-tileset aka Dark Marshland. It has a nightish theme which i like, and moonblaze tried his best to make the backround layer eyecandy fit into the tileset. The backround, considering a warp backround wouldnt fit, is ok, and fits into the tileset. There are very nice and blue sucker tubes included, and some blue distruct blocks, which look cool but sometimes hurt your eyes. Other than that, there is some strange, but well made ground, although i wouldnt have used that brownish color. As well, there are interesting hooks and poles in the set, and brown arrows (to bad moonblaze couldnt make ones pointing down or up), and ropes used for vines. There is a text sign, and an exit sign, with a color that fits into the set.
Now, for Dark_MarshlandEX
The warp backround is ok, not the best it can be, but still very well done. The stars and moon look a bit cartoonish, and the clouds are carefully done. The black backround eyecandy is good, but could of been better as well. The ground here is donewell, i like the color, and there are strange eyecandy things that can be used to decorate the ground. The set includes the important tiles, and has rain in it. It also has invisible tiles, and some colored text. In this set, the up&down arrows are included as well as the left&right ones, and it has green animated bubbles??? Whenever i look at the blue ground, it reminds me of a well textured waterfall, and its a shame there isnt any waterfalls in both sets, but you cant expect everything in a set… There are green and blue animating circles which can be used for warps, and text blocks.
OVERALL: Both of these tilesets are well done, and both relate with night. Although they have some downfalls, they are still a good addition to any tileset collector’s jj2 folder. Good work moonblaze and keep it up.
Now that’s, what I call a tileset!
I give it a ten (so be happy!)
(Unsupported rating (10) removal. What makes this such a tileset? You’ll notice that other people have had a great deal to say about the tileset – what’s stopping you? Can you describe and generally review the upload? Key word being “review”, as in “review needed for rating”. ~Violet)
I dont have rate it srry it’s realy… its a good tileset, why a review?
Eat your lima beans, Johnny.
