Hey folks! My latest tileset. Basicly just some sort of castle. Note that, as all my tilesets, this one uses paint. By the way, I found a way to use the jazz2palette with paint, and it seems to have an influence on paint’s palette. Check out my article about making tilesets(you can find it in the ärticles” link) for more info. Have fun!

Seeing that the level has been reuploaded, you can forget what I said and just re-download the zip file if the example level you have only works for TSF.[This review has been edited by BlurredD]

This is TSF, not 1.23. (I do not have TSF installed.)

hits self on head

Of course! I edited the level! Sorry, guys. I always thought a level made with a 1.23 tileset could work in 1.23 even if it’s made with 1.24.

Labratkid: This IS 1.23. BlurredD compiled it in 1.23. Everyone can have it, normally.

Pretty good.

Good Stuff:
- blue bricks
- background layers
- kept well with color theme

Bad Stuff:
- most of the ideas are ripped from Medivo
- sprite layer objects look flat
- lacking some elements of gameplay (warps, lights, float up scenery, etc.)

This would be a lot better if it were expanded. In that case, I might give it an 8.5 or so.

Never make tilesets 1.24 as it can easilly be avoided. Now only 1/4 of the people who could review and use this can.

Waz made a non TSF tileset, now I can review it.

TILES: There are some stone blocks which are meant to be used for ground, bunch of columns for decorations and walls, soem stone crystals which I think are meant for eyecandy, some cool looking gargoyles. There are also backround bricks, poles and destruct blocks, rainbow colored shields, some well made curtains, exit signs, rain, a sweet backround, and some other small stuff. There are the basic tiles (destruct and trigger blocks, hooks and vines, poles, etc), though there arent any sucker tube tiles (or maybe those wooden things are suppose to be sucker tubes), but the tileset basically has everything needed to make a decent level. Did I mention the backround is amazing?
Pros: Has everything needed, amazing backround, cool looking gargoyles etc.
Cons: Could have more tiles.
Rating: 8.2

COLOR: The color here doesn’t have a large variety, but hey, its a castle tileset! There are some nice shades of red mixed with some other colors for the mountains and the bg, and there are a lot of multi-colored shields. The destruct blocks are colored well, and what I think is suppose to be used for the sucker tube (those wooden stuff) look good as well. There is a nice dark purple color used to decorate the curtains, and every other thing is either a brownish color, or grey or black(with some red for gargoyle eyes). Some of you may want more color in this tileset, but how it is right now is good enough for me.
Pros: Coloring is great and makes sense.
Cons: Not as colorful as some other tilesets;to much grey and brown.

ANIMATIONS AND STUFF: The only downfall in this tileset that bothers me the most is the lacking of animations. There are some red eyes that animate in those little gargoyle heads, and of course the destruct blocks are made to animate, and thats all, unless you make your shields animate, which would look strange. Castle tilesets usually don’t have many things you can animate, but Waz could of used his imagination and added some other animations (like blinking gargoyles, or moving bricks or something)
Pros: Has animations
Cons: Could of had a lot more
Rating: 7.5

MASKING: At first you would think you would spot some masking bugs because its hard to mask gargoyles good and stuff, but the masking is actually good. The gargoyles are masked well and you cant get stuck in them or anything. The ground tiles and wall tiles are masked well. The only thing is that I don’t think those gargoyle heads should of been masked (when they arent in the wall).
Pros: Good masking of stuff
Cons: Nothing really special in the masking.

USERFRIENDLY: User friendly enough for me. The tiles are well placed in the tileset (i.e ground tiles are placed with ground tiles, columns placed with other columns etc). Nothing really makes you say “Gee, I wonder where the tile that goes with this tile is”. The destruct blocks could of been placed more closer to each other, but its ok/
Pros: People making levels with this would be able to understand how to use it.
Cons: Nothing really major.

OVERALL (not an average): The tileset is solid good and basic. It has all the basic stuff, good coloring and masking etc. It’s not one of those groundbreaking tilesets like Agama’s or some of Disguise’s and Blade’s (sorry if I missed you) but its a solid good tileset. I may consider making a level with this, since it has all the requirements and looks like it will produce a good level. Therefore, I like it.
Pros: Good tileset that is just waiting to be used to make a good level.
Cons: Not one of those “OMG WOW AMAZING” things.

OVERALL RATING: 8. A tileset which should be added to any jj2 folder, and gets a download reccomendation from me. Good Job!
