NEW ART BATTLE:
CARROTUS BATTLE ZONE
Its an interesting (I think) Battle level whichis using the Carottus Night Tileset. Download and Rate, please.
I give this a 7.7. Gameplay is good but some of your eyecandy is messed up and there were some glitches in you platforms. Good work except the things i mentioned!
This level is…well…certainally interesting. It reminds me of what would probably be regarded as a solid battle level in the summer of ’99 when chat rooms and the consequences of abusing their rules were accepted due to the lack of any static IP addresses. By the standards of these days, however, this level is not as good. It does show promise, with some creative use of one way and sucker tubes, but it just feels so strange at some points it’s not very good and so bland at some points it’s not very good. The chat room is quite evil. It has the rule that anyone who is caught sidekicking (!!!) is banned (!!!). There is a 10-point coin warp that requires going out of your way and into the aggrevating pinball rooms in order to collect sufficient loot to enter the prize. The flow of this level is OK for a battle level, and the layout was strange but acceptable. The eyecandy, however, was not so good. The layer 5 objects were used strangely and just didn’t look right. Overall, this is a very slightly above average battle level that would have been great in 1999. But this isn’t 1999.
+ PROS: Acceptable gameplay, some interesting but too-weird things.
- CONS: Strange layer 5 background use, bad use of pinballs, dialup-era banning rules.
VERDICT: A 5.5 and no download recommendation except for nostolgia and battle freaks. It’s an alright level that suffers from what could have been prevented if more time was spent on making this level look right. It does, however, show a lot of effort, and that deserves recognition. Keep working on levels, since this definitely shows some degree of promise. Some day you’ll probably be very good.[This review has been edited by Trafton AT]
Nice titleset, that Carrotus isn’t it?
O, yeah right over the level.
With the gameplay is nothing wrong, it is rather funny. You have too bump with the pinball platform and the paddles too win coins!
Enouf carrots, theres nothing too in tell in this point.
EYECANDY: Realy bad, in the cave almost no grass, the platform are not well, there are things like carrots boards and the foregroundlayer is used well. The background also, only it misses a castle and a this with a waterfall and a tree.
Normal, there are enouf weapon crates and the ammo is good over the level. Only at one point, in a cave, I say a weapon crate, I thaugt I will destroy it. When I sooted it, then is bumping out 15 other crates! A little too much.
And also the bonus stuff is also a little too much, I think, there are 2 bonus places, one with a few power ups and a fire shield. In the other place you have, let me see, oh yeah a blaster power up and 6 fast fire, a weapon 9 power up a weapon 8 power up and a fire shield! I think thats a little too much.
GOOD OR NOT TOO PLAY WITH 4 OR MORE PLAYERS?
When I play it with 4 ore more players, it will be a little difficlut too pinball if all the players in the same room. And also when you won the pinball game, you think, there is my reward! And then another player gets it bevore you. There is enouf ammo for all those players, though. I think the maximum players for this level is 20, not more.
When I played it it’s not get boring and thats a good point. Only a bit too much ammo, but thats a + point when you play it for example with 16 ore more players. As I said before the pinball stuff is funny.
I want too give it an 7 but that eyecandy is realy bad! And that is a very – point. Next time you must have more pations and spent more time on the eyecandy, and I now, thats very hard! In overall only download it, as Trafton AT also said, only download for battle freaks, otherwise the download is not reccomd.
Eat your lima beans, Johnny.
