Nostalgia time! Well, for a very few of you. This tileset was started back in 1999, when it sucked, and completed yesterday, when it still sucked. Aaaanyway, it isn’t that bad for a first tileset I think and it has an example level. For more info, read the readme (paintedparadise.htm in the “readme” folder in your unzip directory)
Hehe, my turn to review :p
First, I’d like to mention something about the contents of the Zip-file: not only does it contain the tileset and example, but also the original’s BMP-files (good for previews, people should make a habit of that), a logo, and something I can’t identify :p It’s a .css file in any case (Anyone?)
Ok, now the tileset itself. Somehow, it reminds of Diamondus in JJ1. Yes, the grass/forest (?) theme returns once more :p The graphics are basic imo, no gradients except on the edges. The animations (color animation again, I love those :p) are really nicely done, especially on the waterfalls. Eye candy is there: trees, the mentioned waterfall, signs… That alone can give you a moderate rating. What brings the rating up a notch is that sucker tubes are included, and vines, hooks (there’s a seperate hook event, remember that, Flash ;)), poles… What’s really surprising is that the colors don’t screw up in 8-bit mode when you use the water level event. Kudos for that, Flash :) And of course he didn’t forget hidden massages in the mask :p
While the graphics look simple at best, this set actually has a lot to offer. and content is more important than graphics alone. The graphics are worth a 7 at best, but because of the set’s content (hooks, vines, etc.) the rating raises to an 8 I know, I’m cheap XD. One more thing: the example level shows everything you need to know, but has a faulty next level setting. It’s still an example level, so I won’t withdraw points for that. Good work Flash, keep it up!

You forgot me in the mask message D:
Interesting, Trafton’s name backwards – which is “Notfart”, as most of you know – is also :No TF Art.” WATCH HIM RATE THIS LOW =(((
Or something.[This review has been edited by labratkid]
Litenante, this is a tileset, not a level.[This review has been edited by labratkid]
JelZe: The .css file is a file that contains info about the font and font color and stuff for the HTML readme. Thanks for the review, btw ;)
Labratkid: Sorry :D and OMG ILL WATCH IT.
Biohazard: It is must unlikely I will create another tileset. I just found the bmps of this one on my HD a few weeks ago, and optimized everything to release it, but it will probably be my first and last tileset :P.
Litenante_91: Rate the tileset, not the (sux) level.[This review has been edited by Fl@$h aka BlewMeUp]
GOOSU TILESET AND COOL MASKS AND LEVEL :D
I won’t rate however, since if I’d rate seriously, it would pull down the average and I don’t want that :P
Well, considering that it was your first tileset, I guess it’s pretty good.
Good Stuff: – includes all essential tile types and several extra tile types – good use of multiple layers – waterfalls looks nice! – bmp files and info included
Bad Stuff: – eye candy needs serious help; using your PSP could help a lot with textures and shading
-unoriginal; I think I’ve seen everything in this tileset other places before. – too plain; I can understand that you may have wanted it to look “painty”, but I don’t think you really accomplished that
Don’t be afraid to take lots of time working on each part of the tileset. Even though you’ve had the set in production for a number of years, it doesn’t look like you spent much time on it. Considering that it’s your first tileset, this is understandable. You have some potential, but it looks like you could use some practice first :) .
Edit: I honestly think I was too harsh on the rating the first time, sorry![This review has been edited by Biohazard UOI]

Very nice tileset.
A small review for a good level!
-Long time to find what you want
-Good to use
Wow! I thought this was bad till I saw the example.
It has pretty much every thing vines poles (a hook for the key not for jazz or spaz :P)
It has waterfalls and three or four types of land, Grass, cave, mountain(maybe), and beach.
All in all:8.5
Well well, well, let me rate this!
Eye candy; good
Texture backround; none I can’t see any
Poles; Lol, they’re some in this level
Animated tiles; Alot of them
Stomps; Alot but not all types!
Signature; Alot of them!
Overall rating: 8.5 wow I won’t believe this, it’s so good tileset, nice job!
