This is a jungle level…and the level are small and that have much secrets!
You are not gonna know where the secrets are…soo download the map and see if you find all secrets!
Hey! A good level and too short!:) You start from the beginning kill a few of that monkeys and and then finish the level! But the level seems good! There are some tile bugs, but generally the level design was good.
Well, good for a short level. Then a 5.5 from me![This review has been edited by chandie]
Sorry, it’s short really, eye candy’s bad, backround’z bad, just on type of enemy, bad, there is no secret don’t try to lie bad, no powerups bad, no save points bad, the exit point placement bad! 3.5 from me, sorry! It can’t get better rating, have a nice day!

It’s a very short level, and it’s not that good if you’d ask me. There aren’t a lot of secrets, yet there are a lot of trampolines, which isn’t very usefull! At maximum, there are about 2 or 3 secrets in the whole level! But the enemy placemend is good…But the background is bad. Also the eyecandy is bad…
Well, i think a 5.0 is to much(I THINK) and my brother(he have played this level to)and i think a 4.3 or 4.4 is good for you, but that number is not in the rating-numbers. So i have to give you a 4.2
Much to short,
-Not a SP
-Only 4 enemy’s!\
3 is the highest that i can give.
here is my review
Bad!!! It is not bad but could be better by putting more bushes better background and maybe some moths.
basic!!! not bad not good there are some enemy`s
Basic: some toasters and a couple of appels that`s it.
Bad!!! no easy normal and hard mode and really really short.
it`s not really bad it is not good.
let me see:
Eyecandy = bad
tile use = medium
enemys = bad
others= a lttle empty and its too short. and when finshed u risk to fall and ur game will stop.
d\l this? NO
If u could host a sp lvl? NO NO NO
Jungle Party? Well I don’t know if “Party” really fits
Well, here’s my review =p
The gameplay isn’t too much original, you just jump around and shoot some monkeys. There are a few secrets but they are bad designed at all.
PROS: nothing great to mention
CONS: Boring, too short, bad secrets
The tileset the author used was the jungle thingy from epic. I like that tileset but I don’t like the way the author used it. The background is bad and the foreground wasn’t used very good. Look at level ‘Thriller Gorilla’ and look how Mr Bleszinski made the thingy with the trees, Litenante. I also saw some minor tile bugs.
PROS: okay tileset use (+0.3)
CONS: bad eyecandy (-0.3), foreground layers are used wrong, doesn’t look like a jungle
The weapon placement wasn’t bad, item placement was. What about coins or gems? Also there has to be MORE food. Man, you are in a jungle, right? The enemy placement was…hm…..okay. The author only used one enemy, the monkey. That’s bad. Good thing is that the monkeys are okay placed I think. Again a bad thing is that there is no easy/normal/hard setting. Set more food on easy mode and more baddys on hard!
PROS: okay enemy/ammo placement (+0.5)
CONS: no easy/normal/hard settings
(-0.2), too less items (-0.3)
I don’t feel like replaying this, most because it’s too short and easy. There isn’t really fun and we can’t talk about originality. Bad
PROS: Nothing to mention
CONS: no replay value, no fun factor, no originality
OVERALL (not an average):
Overall it’s (sorry) very bad. It has no eyecandy, isn’t original, too easy and don’t makes fun. Sorry, but this was bad. Practise much more before you upload a level. I will give +1.0 for effort.
PROS: okay ammo placement (+0.3)
CONS: Look up (-0.3)

Here I got some tips from Jazz2 Level Designer Cliff Bleszinksi. You can also read them in the JCS faq.
1. Look Out Below!
Never let people fall on enemies they can’t see below them.
2. Make ‘em Work!
Make people jump for items, or shoot crates. A little bit of effort should be required to collect stuff instead of just running through it.
Set up cool situations where you get bounced all around and you can’t control where you’re going. This is both wacky and fun.
4. Let Them Live!
Never teach the player how to play by killing them. Always give the player a chance to figure things out without dying.
5. SHOOT THE BLOCKS!
Destroyable scenery is your friend. People seem to love shooting those exploadable cubes, and you can set
up great puzzles with ammo-based blocks.
6. What Do I Do?!?
Leave clues to most secrets. If you have a butt stomp gem secret put it between two decorative tiles so people just might try stomping there. Otherwise no-one will find you secrets!
7. Keep the Party Going!
For Party Mode levels, make sure and keep the level “circular”. That is, a player can easily zip around anywhere in the level without encountering any dead ends and having to backtrack.
8. USE VARIETY!
Alternate the scenery! Don’t keep the player entirely inside or outside, use a nice variety of all types of scenery in the tileset.
9. I Can’t See!
Dramatic lighting is great, but don’t leave the player in a dark area without a clue as to where to go. This is frustrating!
10. TEST YOUR LEVELS!
Playtest your levels, and have others playtest them! Sit someone down, have them play through your level, and don’t tell them anything. You’ll be surprised by the results.
Also look at the article “Creating singleplayer episodes” from Ninja Dodo.
So there’s nothing more I can do for you.
Edit NR1: Which error Labratkid? I had no problems to run this and the tileset is the standard jungle thingy, why should there be an error?[This review has been edited by PHT]
I seem to get a fatal error when I try to run this. It’s an error in the tileset. Oh, well.
Not enough enemies and the level is just way too short, I mean, it’s okay to have a semi-short level but this one is just ridiculous. However, the tileset use wasn’t bad at all, but that barely pulls the rating any higher.
Eat your lima beans, Johnny.
