My birthday gift I made for Skulg, this was started the 31th December, and was finished the first January. Happy Birthday Skulg. :P (You may find a few of the tiles is taken from Dark Marshland because I had to hurry.)
Looks nice to me. Most of the basic stuff are all in it the Tileset. Extra stuff like mountains and textures, all there. The colours only irritated it me a bit, blue, black and similiar colours. But I can understand you have made this for Skulg so I will shutt up. ;P An eight from me and a download recommendation.
A nice and well done tileset by mooblaze
The ground is blue and nice, reminds me of Diamondus though. The slime falls look weird and could of been done better, but they are ok and make the tileset more strange. The backround is grey and dull, doesnt really fit in with the rest of the colorful tiles here. Mountains are good, same with all the basic stuff. Has an exit sign. This is definately one of the stranger tilesets on j20, but that does not take away from the uniqueness and quality this tileset has. Its good for a 2 day tileset and deserves a reccomendation.
Very well put together tileset, Moonblaze. Especially like the spooky background. Ill try making a level with it soon, looks like it could produce good quality levels. Download recommended.
BASIC GROUND TILES: They’re mostly there. The author, however, made three tile wide slopes, and two tile wides, but no one tile slopes at all. He also included tiles for one tile wide structures, but they can’t have bottoms, they must stick out of a larger platform structure.
BASIC EVENT TILES: Vines, h/v poles, text sign, exit sign, cool sucker tubes, arrows, blocks (*, !, Bouncy and Trigger) and hook are there. No spikes, though, or belts (though belts are excusable).
LAYERS 5-8: There’s a working textured backgrounds, and two different mountain ranges. The author obviously either looked at or had in mind the background mountains from JJ1 Diamondus, as these resemble them closely.
LAYER 4 BACKGROUND: In contrast to the green and purple walls, the “tunnel”, as some people call it, is dark blue. It’s obviously a copy of the main wall tile, shrunk and with the color changed, and it’s way too repetitive, but it works fine and you can put everything (I think) on it.
EYECANDY: This is the tileset’s main failing. There’s a not-all-that-well-done slime fall, but that’s really all there is in the way of eyecandy. (Not counting stuff listed in LAYERS 5-8). The whole tileset seems based on Darkened Landscape, by Disguise, which had the same sort of floor as well as tombstones for signs, but also had little eyecandy to speak of. Come to think of it, very few of Disguise’s tilesets do. If you’re going to make a level with this tileset, have a lot of slopes, because otherwise the level will start looking monotous Really quickly.
ORIGINALITY: There’s basically nothing in this tileset you haven’t seen before, assuming you download a lot of tilesets. The name’s interesting, but it seems to have little to do with the tileset itself.
VARIATION: This tileset has very little variation. There is one type of ground, which fortunately you can make platforms with instead of just walls, one type of tunnel, both of which have only one tile for their insides.
MASKING: Masking seems fine. The sucker tubes have their outsides masked, so if you want you can have the player be only able to enter them from the correct end.
OVERALL, I WOULD SAY: While I complain about this tileset a lot, it’s still an interesting tileset I might use if I needed Darkened Landscape with tunnel. Spend more time on this, and it would be better.
The tileset grounds are just blue (..) with a shiny green floor on it. The shiny green is slimy, and can be used without blue.
The pallete is ok, if you play you’ll look a bit shiny too. Golden shine, like the moon. All basic tiles are in this tileset, just ripped, like all. The suckertubes are okay, may have more orginality, but okay. There is a waterfall, wich orginal because it’s slimy goo and no water.
All works, so i give this a 8, it don’t have orginal tiles, but it’s a reccomend tileset. Download this.
Eat your lima beans, Johnny.
