I had great fun playing this.

GAMEPLAY:

Inspired by DW? Maybe. Gameplay like DW? Hardly. This level has some flow, but not much at all. It’s mostly platforms (and not pretty ones) between each base. Squared-off platforms don’t exactly scream fun. Base placement isn’t the worst I’ve ever seen. It’s just very boring: one route to each base located on each edge of the level. But that’s not the worst part; it’s everything in between the bases. I’ll explain these balance issues later on in the review. Also, there’s one annoying bug which seems to have been overlooked by the beta-testers: players can get stuck in the tube near 64,27. It might be hidden, but it’s not too hard to go into by accident. Fix it, please.

EYE CANDY:

Well, the tileset isn’t bad. However, it lacks a whole lot of variety. As a result, this level looks awfully bland and dull. I can’t say what should be done to improve the eye candy since the tileset is rather limiting, but I suppose it’s good for the tileset.

CARROT AND AMMO PLACEMENT:

At least it uses a full energy carrot. Too bad it doesn’t help enough to make the level balanced. All of the powerups are on the left side while there is a warp to the carrot on the right. There is a way to make this idea of balancing a level work out—just not in this level. I can almost live with the ammo placement, but it seems to be missing RFs. No RFs? That’s insane. There isn’t even any pepper spray. OK, so it’s not the most important thing, but still… I like my RFs.

HOST THIS OFTEN?

Host it, if you have much lower standards than me. Otherwise, no (sorry). AvK, Spotty, and Black Ninja could have done a better job beta-testing the level. I’m giving this a 5.7 just because.

The Edit: Alright, so maybe a 6.0 (with the bug fix), but that’s as high as I’ll go. Also, I don’t recall those beta-testers making too many CTF levels in any case (no offense).[This review has been edited by BlurredD]

No.
You can see, what missing in your tileset. Small and boring level. Maybe it is original, for it I give points. Diamondus Warzone is much better. OK. now you cannot make CTF levels, but, if it is your first CTF level, then, good…
I love moon, what is in left top… It is cool. And music is good too. I think, this is average level.

Spaz, this was not joke. This is only great foo war. Yes. I am foo.
Or, I don’t understand you. Yes. I think I don’t understand you.

Oh, I said average? Then, 5.5.

And, there are bugs. If you will betatesting, you will have not these problems. (If you will have masked sucker tube, then one and only variant is rejoin.)

LabRat, sorry, but this is not good level. But, not bad… I said. Average.[This review has been edited by Danyjel]

I think this was a joke.

Regardless of it’s intentions, it’s a ctf lvl and I shall review it as such. The layout of this level feels really random, and the weapon placement is only so so. The carrot box is placed very badly, and the one power up is also very badly placed. Sorry lrk, but you get what it deserves.

Pros:
Not a bad level.

Cons:
Overall, not a good level.

Overall: 5, just 5.

Btw: Next time don’t upload 2 hour peices of work.[This review has been edited by Inf. Spaz]

JKSGDH how could I have missed those other 2 power ups. Must have been busy with other things. Rating changed to 5.7. walks away feeling like a foo[This review has been edited by Inf. Spaz]

-its fun
-good music
-funny tileset
