Here is my original re-review re-reviewed or something like that. I will give this a level rating of 3. I am tired of seeing you post new versions. Please reupload them instead. Better yet, just give up on this project – it does not really show much promise to speak of.
====================================
This was my original review. The sparce fixes have prompted me to upgrade my rating from 2.2 to 2.7. Next time just reupload, please.
====================================
Well, Nickadot, I have to say I am disappointed. Almost all of your uploads have either been 5 minute levels, rips of other levels, or just blalant theft of another’s work. And this Battle2 edit is not exactly reassuring. First of all, this .ZIP file unzips to /jj1diam/ or something like that, which is really annoying. Make your ZIP files unzip to the default directory, PLEASE. And now for the review.

EYECANDY
Tileset Use: If you are going to make a completely ripped edit, you should at least put some effort in it. And this obivously lacks effort. There is nothing but the basic ground tiles in this level. Not only does it look way too simplistic, it is downright ugly. The only redeeming quality to the eyecandy is that the author at least did not use the same ground tile over and over, but the level still looks ugly. The eyecandy in this level just is not good at all.
Tile Errors: Tile errors abound in this level. There are plenty of questionable uses for tiles (such as using the same tile for destruct scenery as the wall.) but then there are just plenty of downright errors. Blocks placed incorrectly, gem patterns only half completed, missing tiles – you name it, this level messed it up. There were plenty of oppertunities for interesting tile use in JJ1: Diamondus, none of which the author elected to use.
Creativity: Creativity is in the eye of the beholder. Sure, edits may have some creative spark to them, but this edit is not creative by any definition. This level is about as creative as a bar of soap, and about as enjoyable as well. There is no background where there should be one, and the default layer eight background is about as interesting as dirt. The level in general shows no creativity eyecandy-wise, nor gameplay-wise. Oh, yes, and the springs are floating in mid-air in some cases.

PLACEMENT OF STUFF
Carrots: One carrot. Yes, one carrot. And in the same place it always is in – the room with the springs. There is not much to say about this, since nothing was changed about it. So I will leave it with that.
Powerups: This level completely lacks powerups, just as the original Battle2 did. Not much to say there.

Basic Weapons: Well, there has not been anything changed since the original Battle2. Basically the weapon placement is the same as in Battle2 – nothing more, nothing less.

GAMEPLAY AND FLOW
Flow/Navigation: This version really messes up several crucial parts of the level flow. All instances of One Ways have been completely removed, and the springs that occupy the upper right of the level are just floating in mid-air. Not only does this look strange, but they are quite easy to get stuck in. It does not completely ruin the original flow and navigation of this level, but it definitely hurts it. This just is not a good edit.
Layout: Layout is, again, the same as Battle2. Not much to say here either. Everything is where it used to be, though there are problems caused by the conversion that hurt the layout. Nothing much to say here other than just look at Battle2 if you want an idea of what the layout of this level is.

BATTLE SPECIFICS
Compatibility: The level did not crash my computer, nor did it cause any problems. Yay. I guess.

SUMMARY
I’ve never been particurally fond of edits of Battle levels. I have really never been fond of conversions into different tilesets. And I’m not fond at all of this level. Not only is it a conversion of a level that really did not need conversion, it hurts the level. I do not mind conversions as much if they improve eyecandy and even maybe level flow, but this one worsens both of the forementioned areas. Unless you are really and truly desperate for a JJ1: Diamondus version of Battle2, I suggest you stick to the original. Then again, if you are desperate for a JJ1: Diamondus version of Battle2, personally, I would wait for a better one to come along.

+ PROS: This level has a next level setting, so you will not have to play it in a loop.

- CONS: Ooh…Where to start. There are many tile errors, flow problems, and problems that could have easily been avoided if any time was put into this level. It probably just took about ten minutes, and that was it. No effort whatsoever. Shame.

VERDICT: Again, I despise edits of levels and I also despise conversions. This level does not do anything to lessen my hate of this genre. In fact, if anything, it just strengthens it. This level really messes up the original and makes it more tedious than it originally was. With an uninspired background and equally as uninteresting idea behind it, this level is definitely one to avoid. You can find much better conversions than this one, which is saying a whole heck of a lot. For this, I give a 2.2 rating and no download recommendation. Put more effort into your levels or you will likely see more ratings along this line.

HOLY DRAT! I did say you to don’t do this. The firs time i maked a N/A of it. But I don’t give you a warning twice so I’ll rate it. And not very high.
There are only a few tiles edited, so read my other review on version 1 or the real review.
Tips for Nickadot:
1. Don’t make levels again. It suck. If you do, don’t upload them.
2. Spend time on your levels. Don’t be quick-quick-ready.
3. Use things where they needed for. Don’t use ground as destruct blocks.

No download reccomadati.. recommadation?

Edit: Sure i get it. But one day isn’t so much you know.[This review has been edited by Taz]

I can’t rate this anymore. Dizz suxx. He doesn’t even listen to me I think. Not much has been fixed, and the problems are still here. Nickadot, tell me your e-mail, and I’ll show how good could this be made.
