THEME: The theme, I think, is that you’re on some asteroid or space station orbiting a planet called Dark Devil (or you’re orbiting a dark devil.. you never know). This is an interesting theme, but the background eyecandy is not built to support it (some space junk flying by would add to the feeling, as well as a big old planet (or devil?)).
Pros: Interesting theme.
Cons: Not too well carried out, lack of support from background.
Rating: 7.0

GRAPHICS: There are two types of ground, and two types of background (actually they’re just different shades). Also two shades of pipes, which are just gradients. The main ground looks pretty good, like in Toxic Factory only a different color (the fans are even still here). The other ground, for Orbit Mountain, isn’t so good. It looks appropiate, and has a nice platform on top, but it’s just an obvious PSP texture and the author couldn’t get it to tile well. The transparencies for it are also messed up, so all you people who like inventive backgrounds may have some troubles with these tiles. The fans look good, and the pipes are working gradients. For background eyecandy, there are some diagonal pipes, and some ripped tiles from Labrat.
Pros: Everything’s pretty good.
Cons: A few tiles from Labrat, lack of good background, Orbit Mountain doesn’t tile at all well.
Rating: 7.2

INVENTORY: This section can really make or break a tileset. The author has ground, “tunnel”, background eyecandy (ripped), a background (nice), spikes (ripped), poles (standard), float up events, blocks (standard), signs (standard), and two colors of extra layer 4 eyecandy (the OMF bots from Labrat).
Pros: A good deal of stuff is there.
Cons: A lot of it was not made by the author, and there aren’t any vines, hooks, or sucker tubes (though I suppose you could use some of the solid pipe walls).
Rating: 7.0

ORIGINALITY: Some parts of this tileset are original, some aren’t. The main floor is, of course, just another moderately textured isometric floor, but the piping (solid and not solid) is pretty nice. I’m not sure if Orbit Mountain’s original or not.
Pros: Some original things.
Cons: Not enough.
Rating: 6.5

COMPETITION: About the only tileset I can think of similar to this (not counting Toxic Factory) is Orbitus, and no conversion of that has been released (AFAIK). So while this is probably the best available tileset for this theme, you might want to wait for a better one to come along.

EASE OF USE: A few of the tile placements are a bit questionable, but the tileset seems fairly easy to use.
Pros: No big problems here.
Cons: A few things are hard to get at.
Rating: 7.2

MASKING: Masking is pretty good, except for one tube-ground thing (in the example level) where I got stuck accidentally (even worse then on purpose).
Pros: Pretty good.
Cons: A few flaws.
Rating: 7.5

OVERALL (not an average, doggone it): This is a fairly good and interesting tileset, but I’m not sure I really recommend it, at least not in this current state. Get Orbit Mountain working, fix a few of the bugs, change the background eyecandy entirely and replace the ripped tiles with other things, and I might change my mind.
Pros: Everything’s pretty good.
Cons: A few annoying faults/flaws.
