Ok, enough with the negativity here! some people just look at the bad sides with looking at the good ones (I’m not saying names, that would be a personal attack) Anyway, here’s what I think of this set…

Considering this is made in MS Paint (yes, the infamous program which a reputation of having made bright, limited colored sets), the colors are actually nicely done, which scores extra points in my book. Unfortunately, that’s all there is. The tileset itself is pretty basic, as mentioned in earlier reviews, with just ground, blocks, and some signs. No background, eye candy, nothing to increase the appeal of a level, aside from a bone in the ground, but that’s it: nothing. The example level only shows you how you can use the set and some facts about it.

On an interesting note, I’ve read the readme (as always, reviewers should make a habit of that, there is a point to making them. Heck, even the name of the zip file says you should read it) and it was all about how he got inspiration, how he loved 24… And it says he can draw well, he even drew mangas (Japanese comics for the unknowing). I believe that if he had the proper tools, he could become like Agama, but that’s just me :p

Verdict:
Back to the set. Overall, the rating is on a borderline, just because of the good colors in Paint (I’m a sucker for those, I know). The only thing I can do is suggest these things: get a free copy of Paint Shop Pro somewhere, it works much better than Paint. Secondly, take a good look at tilesets of others (I suggest Agama, Disguise and Blade), especially at the eye candy they put in. I can only give it a 5, because I’m nice :)

It’s not good at all. The slopes don’t fix together well, and there is no textured background. Pinball events, snow, water in 8bit, and poles do not work. The masking is not all that special. No eyecandy tiles. No animations. Just rather ugly. The only good thing is that the flat tiles fit together okay. No download reccomendation.

23.9 is mine, too =) My sister’s birthday is today (the 16th).[This review has been edited by labratkid]

Bjarni, it was too low… or atleast it was too low compared to the other reviews. That’s long enough.[This review has been edited by labratkid]

How i have written in the Read-Me:
I`m going to make a 2nd Version from this tileset so it help me very much what you think must put in…
Thats nice from you…
And: JelZe Thanks for viewing the read-me!…

Ok… I`m at present working on the 2nd ver. :
I have allready drawed some Vines, Poles and a bit Eyecandy….
I think, end of summer (23.9.) the second version will be available here.

Did you have some more tips?
I will need them!
Post them here or (If you allready have made a review) You can send me a private message on j2o or on my e-mail adress:
majatombarbara@aol.com

When you send a mail to the last adress please include in the topic that its a message from j2o..

Thats all for this time.
HEY!! Today`s evening 24 (12:00 -> 14:00) comes! I must watch!
Eheheh…

NEW VERSION INFORMATIONS BEFORE UPCOMING HERE!!!+++NEW VERSION INFORMATIONS BEFORE UPCOMING HERE!!!+++

Ver. 1.1
Addet at 16.9.

YEEEHAAA! I Have now drawed my first own animations!
The Animations which glows up looks very nice, i think.

Yeah! You can use the ones wich are totally ``clean´´ for layer 6 and 7. Layer 5 you need for
The Other background blox.
Use the Animated blox which are a bit darker for background (Holes) in layer 4 (Sprite Layer)

This was the version 1.1.

Ver. 1.5:
Yeah! Now the sky looks like a god! There is a face in it!
And: I`fe addet to the glowing block-animation the 45° UPs And DOWNs.
I Also addet green tiles wich looks like grass.
Also ADDED: The Watter what someone writes wich is usefull in a jungle tileset.
I Think it was JelZe wasn`t he it?
To the watter: Uses the big green slimy block, just with blue elements.
(The blue ones aren`t masked) ife forgotten the middle watter. The both others are
ones with grass at the side.

About ver. 1.6.
Addet at 17.9.

I have addet now grass which flickers in the wind. I also addet the middle watter and i`fe also repaired some mask-tiles. The next version will comes out on the 20.9. (Next Weekend) so be prepared for the come-back…..
HEy! ``24´´ comes at friday! And today (17.9) I`m so ill that i mustn`t go to shool… I have many time for working on… so how i have sayed. Mabye there will a 3rd version, too.

Information about ver. 1.8:

I have now find a Mega-Music file for the example level and in the tileset i have also drawed Glowing green layer-4-background-blocks and 1 Kind of tree which glows green.

I THINK I MAKE ANOTHER NAME FOR THE TILESET! What about
A: ``Jungle Disco´´
B: ``Funky Jungly´´
C: ``THE MIGHTY JUNGLE´´
or
D: ``Mysterios Jungle´´

When the 2nd version comes up, you can add your meaning about the name ``fe choosen. So
That was ver.1.8.

Why didn`t work the j2o codes?

I’m so sorry, it’s bad! Five things:

1: To short tileset
2: No animted tilesets
3: Too few colors
4: No stomps
5: I tried my best but I can’t make level out of this tileset without it’s bad!

Sorry, 2.5 from me! Try better next time, and have your tilesets larger!

Trafton: Rating removal.

Edit: Trafton, sorry but I didn’t told you that, FQuist sent me PM about I have permission to rate levels! You deleted my rating because you didn’t know what PM FQuist sent me yesterday! I have permission to rate levels again! Yeah, once a day! FQuist the adminastor, gave me permission to rate levels! Only to telling you that! I do have permission to rate levels! I’m not lieing, believe me, FQuist gave me permission to rate levels again! One rating a day! Now you know that, Trafton!

Trafton: Rating removal. Do not reinitalize offenses. You can rate levels as long as you rate them fairly. The same rules apply to you as to everyone else. You may rate, but if your rating is inappropriate, it will be removed. You receive a warning for this offense.[This review has been edited by Trafton AT]

Edit: Oh, was it too low rating? Or was this to short rating? Maybe shall I have my ratings longer! Was it too short? I think so! I’m still wondering, what was illegal with my rating, Trafton?[This review has been edited by the real one Bjarni]
