This is the fuel refinery for Devan’s destroyers! The entire planet is covered with purple goo and Jazz must swim through it in order to destroy Devan’s handiwork. Touch the switches to raise and lower the water level!
Anyway, it’s another JJ1 planet conversion. In order to have the water/fuel look like it does in JJ1, turn Low Detail on and 16-bit Color (if you’re one of those people who play with it) off.
Speaking of the water, JJ2’s water look and some of the tiles in Dreempipes really conflict. If you plan to use some of these tiles and they will be underwater at least once, use that tile’s Underwater Alternative instead. (Lower quality, but they work underwater that way)
Hmmm….joy, I knew this would come out sooner or later. Sadly, I cant download this or rate this yet, but i will as soon as my computer was fixed. Expect a long review from me.Well, like I promised, here is the long review.
Firstly let me say that the example level was good and showed a lot, and the button idea was really good, since the buttom tiles come into use.
Now lets begin the review:
Water: Since a good percentage of this level is based on the look of the water, I have to include this in my review. The water actually looks quite great. Though it looks purple, that is good since the water isnt “pure” on this planet. The water is one of the best I have ever seen. It looks good AND fits into the theme of the tileset. Plus the water goes into a combination with the switches to make it go up and down. Not many levels that are themed around water turn out good, but one with this tileset can be great! There are also “underwater alternatives” as it says in the set, which if you dont feel comfortable using water you can make something that resembles water, which is great.
Hmm…I havent played Dreempipes in a while, but based on what I see and remember all the tiles are included. Heck, there are even those buttons and eggs of that giant bird included! I have nothing wrong with the included tiles. Also, there are extra tiles which violet himself made, such as the hooks destruct blocks etc. And the textured backround looks beautiful! There are also belts, suckers, destruct blocks, hooks, poles, vines and many more. What more can you ask for! There is a variety of tiles so you can make numerous different settings and use you imagination and creativity to the full power! This definately gets high marks!
Cons: None that I can see of.
The color here is also great. Like I mentioned before, the water actually looks good in this set O.o And the textured backround is amazing. I also fell in love with the belts, that color is awesome! The sucker tubes and tunnels look quite good too! The green ground and backround look great! The water looks a bit strange but its still good. The color shocks me here at how well its done.
Pros: Basically everything.
Cons: None that I can see of or that are worth mentioning.
The first thing Ive noticed is some text in the mask ;p Lol, though its funny to read and I have no problem with it, I wont give extra marks because violet is a “cowfish”. The thing I found that sort of bugged me is the tunnel mask is to thin. While playing the xample level, when i jumped in the tunnel I was slowed down by the mask because I almost went through it (yes, it is that thin). Though this only decreased the rating by a bit, it can become a nuisance, especially in race games where people are new to this set. Generally, I found the masking to be ok, except there are to many thin masks in this set, and im not exactly a fan of that.
Pros: Masking is good.
Cons: Sometimes its to thin and gets annoying.
Wow. Thats what describes this the most. There are many animations in this tileset. Arrows, waterfalls, water rivers, arrows on suckers, small barely seen flashing dots on the yellow triangles, waterfalls in what looks like a glass tube, blue and green buttons, water control buttons, water on ground, small waterfalls(variety), belts and destruct blocks, to name them. Though some animations you can barely see, others are quite good. I find no problem with the animations, they are quite well done.
Pros: Lots of animations, nicely done
Cons: Some arent that usefull.
Ease to use:
This is the part that lowers the mark of many tilesets down. No matter how much people try, there is still some difficulty using the tileset. This tileset fits that description. Although ive seen many harder to use sets, this one isnt what I would call simple. The large variety in the tiles make the levelmaker think “Gee, I wonder where this goes”. Though the example level helped me understand how to use the set more, I still have some difficulty with it. Though when i look at it from the positive, I see really awesome levels made with this. Though it would take some work and getting used to the set.
Pros: Ive seen more harder to use sets.
Cons: Large vareity confuses you in where to place tiles, not that easy.
FINAL RATING: 9.1, which is rounded closest to 9.2, which id what I would give this.
FINAL COMMENTS: Unlike many of you, Dreempipes wasnt my favorite tileset. The conversiono of the tileset was magnificent though, I dont think you would find a better dreempipes conversion out there. Violet proves again he is number one when it comes to conversions. The tileset is great, and im sure many of us where waiting for it. This is one the greatest conversions, and you MUST download this (unless you want to be like spoy ;p j/k)
Like i said, I’d give this a solid 9.2 and a big download reccomendation. [This review has been edited by Blackraptor]
Ok, let’s go
TILE AMOUNT: Just great!
TILE LINKING: Ok, because this is from JJ1 The paths and walls are otherwise well linked. I can give it only 8, because you just convert the right tiles.
ANIM TILES, SPIKES ETC.:Good? Yes!
REALIZATION: Looks very much JJ1 tileset. Well done.
EXAMPLE LEVEL: It was fun. Fun those water level buttons. Anyway there’s few places to get stuck, and few tile bugs.
Overall: 8.8 Level rank: good level.
Always an 8 for conversions.
A nice conversion. Pity it’s soo annoying to get the water to look right.
Also, I for some reason like the idea of using a jazz-savepoint sign thinge for a text sign, but I’m just weird.
Once again, a great conversion of yours, Violet. I see you are first to make Dreempipes conversion, so I increase my rating by 0.2. Good work and keep on converting!
Woot wack wacka. Another JJ1 conversion by Violet. Always they are nice, so, why don’t this one?
This is only one of the best of Violet conversions. You get really the feeling that you are in a factory and wow there is a textured background.
There is many eyecandy, and you can use the buttons very nice, what Violet letyou see very cool in the Example level.
The tileset overal is just nice purple, with pipes ahem, fuel barrel and more of toxic anti-prolotifitiojilotion things. Nice work.
Why didnt this come out sooner. This tileset is the best.
Download RECOMMENDED DEFINETLY
If this had come out sooner, it would have had less tiles and far more bugs. :)
Violet you are the king. I’ve been waiting for Dreempipes for bleeming ages! :D
Doesn’t seem to lack any tiles that I can see. Has the red buttons, the green background alternative versions of all the tiles, heck even the boss eggs. :) Very well done.
IMHO you shoulda used Haze’s Dreamy Pipes remix, it might not be as authentic but it’s even cooler music. :p[This review has been edited by defalcon]
This was always my least faverouite tileset in JJ1 but the conversion is great.
I don’t like how you have to get the water working its just silly. Anyway it has most of the tiles needded good job!
Very nice tileset…
… do you know Sirius???
Sirius is very. very good remake of tileset Dreempipes. Orignal, GOD!!!
But this is easier to use.
Normal Conversion Of Good Tileset.One good think is here: Jazz 1 lives!!![This review has been edited by Danyjel]
D/L for >fan< of JJ1 recommended[This review has been edited by Danyjel]
This is a great remake. I realized long ago that a Jazz 2 Dreempipes would have to “touch” the buttons. It’s great. I think it looks better than the original. And it brings a nostalgic tear to my eye. :’-)
Dreempipes is one of my favorite planets in jj1 – and this ocnversion is perfect. rating is :9.5, and download recommedation!
Yaaaaaaaaayyyy!!!! A JJ1 tileset!!!
I can put my boring shareware version of JJ1 aside.
EYECANDY SEARCH: More than enough. There are a few backround tiles.
PROS: Enough eyecandy.
CONS: Not many foreground tiles. Whoever made a level out of this tileset would have a bit of trouble what to put of Layer 1 and 2.
FEATURES: The pipes (of course) hide stuff in them, set triggers for them, secretly hide enemies in them. All sorts of things!!!
CONS:Be careful how and where you put them.
COLOURS: A few bright colours in there but aparty from that, GREAT COLOURS
PROS: GREAT COLOURS!!!
CONS: A few too bright.
FINAL COMMENT: Put a few more forground tiles in, i would of given you the last 0.8. Who cares, the tileset was good.
Well, here’s my 2 cents:
Very, very,very very good conversion! Dreempipes is my absolute *FAVORITE** tileset in Jazz1, and this conversion is no exception. The colors are very well done, the masking good in most places [except in the pipe, which I DID go through, unlike what Blacky said], music good, I like everything here. You included all [I think…] the tiles from the orig game, and this makes me happy. Readers, go DL right now! This conversion is a masterpiece perfectly and brilliantly showing off Violet CLM’s skills as a Jazz1 tileset convertor.
