Description

This is a pack containing all 6 levels which I created in 1998 and 1999.

And now a piece of history:
25th October 1998: Back to Carrottus – This was my first level created in JCS. The setting is of course Carrottus.

31st October 1998: Medival Night – Not more than a week later I’ve released the second level. It was planned to be even better than my first one but somehow, somewhere in the process of creating this lev things went wrong and I ended with a close-to-low average level… I’m very dissapointed by it.

28th December 1998: Morph Machine – Almost two months later The Morph Machine is born. A tough level with the most ammount of carrots you’ll ever see… but even then the level is very hard to beat. I managed to beat it after 10th try I think. It’s actually an experimental level.

31st December 1998: Diamond Rabbit – It took me only 3 days to create this level and so far it’s the best one I’ve ever made! Try to find all the secrets ;) Believe me you won’t manage teehee.

30th January 1999: Coldest Winter is realesed as the demo level of an episode I started working on – Project: IceAge. The episode itself wasn’t released…
The Coldest Winter is another great level – my second favourite.

7th April 1999: Burning Cave – the test of this level was only given to few of my friends. I don’t think it was ever realesed to public. The level itself is not so good as I’d like it to be but it’s still fun.

And that’s all folks. Have fun and expect some new levels very soon :)

These levels are pretty good, my favourite one is “Diamond Rabbit”, which I got from level pack of The Secret Files version, also i used some AngelScript codes like palette changing and Schwartzenguard as a shell after he is defeated. Also I can use not-buttstomp Bolly and Bilsy which ignores bullets.

Back to carrotus:
Tileset use: the tileset was used rather good, but I noticed mistakes. 7.5
Layout: layout was a bit boring at many parts of the level. 6
Weapon placement: the weapon placement was fairly good. Maybe a bit less weaponnery would have been better. 7
Ennemi placement: bad. Way too much ennemies. 3
Goodies: good enough. A little too much carrots. 5
Eyecandy: backgrounds are OK. On layer 4, most of the eyecandy was only some dancing flowers. 6.5

Average for 1st lvl: 5.8

Medival Night:

Tileset use: perfect. No mistakes(at least I didn’t notice any). 10
Layout: boring. Everything was a bit empty. 4
Weapon placement: Bad. There weren’t enough weapons. 3
Ennemi placement: Bad. Here again a bit too much. 3.5
Goodies: not much of that. Infact, I believe there were only a few carrots and a bout 10 food thingies throughout the whole level. 3.5
Eyecandy: really not enough. I didn’t spot any eyecandy on layer 4, exept for a few flags, and there was rain on layer 1, which moved to slowly. 2

Ennemi placement: too much badguys. 3

Well the levels were not intented to be connected with each other, because they do not officially create an episode. Each level is a standalone level and not part of an episode. :) So it’s IMHO better if each one can be accessed from the HC list.

Reply to Sun Fun Dude: I just returned :)
And I\‘ve started working on a Project of mine… actually two projects :)

Project Alpha and Project Beta. More about Project Alpha you can read on the discussion board in the JCS section.
And as for Project Beta… you\‘ll just have to wait and see :)
Expect something new in April.

Heh, I’ve downloaded this just for… Let’s say: to view what things can make other Polish Jazzers. First of all, I want to say that I hate writing.

I’ve played all levels, expect the Diamond Rabbit, because Polish Jazzers have it on TSF CD :).

The eyecandy is good. No bugs like flying trees. I must agree with other reviewers and say that there are too much enemies. I like the Morph Machine on Tubelectric. Fun get-safe-to-exit level (it reminds me a map called Jailbreak when I played loong ago StarCraft).

Overall, a 7.5. It isn’t a perfect pack, but isn’t d00f like Bjarni-style levels.[This review has been edited by ScionFighter]
