Have you ever think where Bilsy lives? In this level pack you’ll find the way that goes to Bilsy’s Kingdom. Have fun. (This is the 9. upload)Note:Because of the errors of this upload, i couldn’t upload the musics and tilesets. You can find them in the single player part that named “The Kingdom Of Bilsy(tilesets and music)”
The tilesets and music WERE uploaded to J2O, but the .zip file was too big, and it got deleted. I am going to assume I have all the tilesets used, though, as I usually do. Yep. FYI, they’re Jazzed Realm, Slimy Land and Winter Wonderland (in Wisety’s Wonders).
This is all very strange. I could have sworn this file was uploaded to J2O before, as I already have it. Looks helplessly at Chandie for explanation
Later edit: Well, there seem to be no explanation coming, so I’ll just review this normally.
STORY: The story is that Bilsy did… something, and you must find him and defeat him. Who says to be good a level pack needs a good story? Still, a little more in the way of plot would have been nice. Moving on, it is followed fairly well throughout the levels, with a brief excursion to defeat some queens which ends up tieing in anyway.
Pros: Handled fairly well.
Cons: Does it really matter what Bilsy did? The plot’s just very standard.
TILESETS/TILESET USE: Once again, Chandie here uses Slimy Land (ET), Winterland Wonder (Disguise) and Jazzed Realm (Everlasting?), and if you don’t have these tilesets I don’t know what the world is coming to. Slimy Land is used completely as the author intended, with nothing paticularly strange. Winterland Wonder is mostly normal, with a few interesing transparency effects which end up looking good in 8-bit (and I could care less how they look in 16-bit). Jazzed Realm is hard to say, as I don’t know if it does have an intended way of use. Anyway, tileset use is good, some interesting things, nothing ends up looking bad.
Pros: Pretty much all works.
Cons: A few tile bugs in the Winterland Wonder walls, some masking problems here and there.
WEAPON/ITEM/ENEMY PLACEMENT: This pack did quite well here. Everything was placed well, and while there may have been a few too many 1ups, everything else is balanced. Weapons, Items and Enemies are placed with the same care and precision you see in the official JJ2 levels. Bravo.
Cons: Maybe a few unbalances.
ORIGINALITY: Chandie is very good at balancing originality and non-originality. Chandie’s packs seem to start out with ordinary Jj2 play, then slowly grow more and more different as you progress. The three ice kingdoms were really quite interesting (though I can’t say I care for the foreigner text), and it must have taken some work to get not one of the Queen bosses to conflict with the others. Still, there was not quite so much originality as there could have been, and I felt it was a bit lacking at times.
Pros: Some interesting things.
Cons: This factor was a bit missing sometimes.
DIFFICULTY: This pack is… well… easy. It’s not just that there are actually a decent amount of weapons – I used only blaster and plowed through the enemies with no problem at all. It just does not present enough of a challenge. No spike balls, spike platforms, paticularly dangerous weapons, or anything. The queens are fairly simple to dispose of (no spikes or anything), and Bilsy’s not too bad either. If there’s one thing this pack fails in, it’s giving the player a challenge.
Pros: Not beserk fifty enemies per tile stuff, or no enemies at all.
Cons: Too easy.
REPLAY VALUE/FUN FACTOR: This lack pack is fun, and I may end up playing it for a third time, and possibly a fourth. Again, the replay value might be a little higher if it was a little harder, but it is fun nonetheless. Enjoyable.
OVERALL: This is a good single player pack (probably better then NiP), but nothing too amazing. The eyecandy is good but not spectacular, and while it’s solid, it seems to be missing a certain something now and then. Regardless, it would have gotten My vote for LoTW if it had actually been held Saturday Evening, and not Early Afternoon.
Pros: Quite good.
Cons: A few problems here and there.
Rating: 8.7[This review has been edited by Violet CLM]
Wha-what? What tilesets? What music? The only file with Bilsy in it on J2O is this one… this is 5 levels.
just like mi first levels always include the tileset if it is custom bud i am not mad i just want to say that so please re-upload bud then with tileset
Now I have just uploaded the tilesets for you to a level pack called: The Kingdom Of Bilsy(tilesets) which can be found in the single player section!
I can’t find the music and tilesets for this level pack anywhere.
EDIT: It’s working now. Thanks for the tilesets Violet! :-)
Eat your lima beans, Johnny.
