Description

This is another episode from me. Yep, Ultimate command is the serie not the name of the episode. That ultimate command in a serie, means that I might make more episodes, which are same style as this one. The colony problems is the name of the episode. Remember to read the readme and also that you wouldn\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\‘t get confused about the storyline, keep on the readme during the game. There is all the prologies for missions, that each time when you face a mission, look out for current mission\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\‘s prology. Yes, we are talking about missions, not levels. The same rule of the uc-serie levels is that they are all mission-style. For an example you have to collect an amount of coins, or kill someone, etc. It\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\‘s like compliting some kind of strategy-game campaigns. Hard to explain, but hope that you understood. Some missions have to reload sometimes, cause the design. Well, I released this as a xmas-present. Of course I did it a bit earlier than the xmas-eve, that many would get it to xmas-eve. Well, the main idea of this episode isn\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\‘t xmas, but I put a special mission to the end:\\\\\\\\

Wow!

First impressions:
Well, this pack is a must download. Really. Counting 9 missions, ( 25 j2l files ) This is one of the best epsiodes here yet.Download or not? Well, my review should tell everything, so lets get started:

EYECANDY: Wow! Every level has lots of eyecandy in it. Every level uses background layers right, and there is no major tilebugs.Myself, i love these levels, or missions. ;p
PROS: Amazing, stunning eyecandy.
CONS: none.
RATING: 10/10

TILESET USE:
Excellent. Stunning. Levels use their tiesets rightly, with amazing result. There are lots of eyecandy, like i mentioned already. No cons. ;p
PROS: stunning.
CONS:none.
RATING: 10/10

GAMEPLAY:
Well. i think that gameplay should be bit smoother. and i think this pack is bit too hard. Gameplay is good, ofterwise. No more comments.
PROS: good..
CONS:bit too un-smooth. ;p
RATING 8/10

PLACEMENT:
Hmm. Lets see. Episode has foods, which are goodly placed, ( you can get them easily, etc ). But, i think that there should be more ammo. Episode would be little bit easier then. ;p
Enemies are placed finely, no complaiments & comments.
PROS:Fine placement.
CONS:more ammo is needed.
RATING: 9/10

ORIGINALITY:Oh well. Episode uses mostly custom sets. ( expect first three levels, i think ;p )
But i still think that these levels are quite original.. ;p
PROS:Quite original…
CONS:Could use more epic sets.
RATING: 8/10

DIFFICULTY LEVEL:
Hmm like i mentioned already, too hard + there is ammo, but not enough.
I still think there should be more ammo. Sometimes, it is hard to beat enemy-packs. ;p
PROS:well,well. Good difficulty level for player who has lots of experience.
CONS: little bit too hard, for me. ;p
RATING:9/10

FUN FACTOR:
These levels are fun to play, and i would play this again, since this is one of the best episodes on j2o. :)
PROS:FUN!111
CONS:None.
RATING 10/10

OVERALL:
Well, lets see my final rating is 9.
Why? becuz this pack rules. Really. by the way, why you are wasting your time by reading my review? go to download this pack! now!
DOWNLOAD RECOMMEDATION:Yup.
RATING:9

EDIT1: Okay, SJ.

One thing which I forgot about the description: The episode is meant to experienced players. Even you would take Easy-mode, it would still be hard. Yes, there is difficulty settings and when you choose Hard, the amount of enemies is about double. There’s a bit more carrots and pickups, etc in easy. You have to be also that good player than the person in the story is. If you are an elite-SK, then you have to deal with it, or how is it explained. So I put some flocks of enemies into some places and I have given enough guns to beat em, though. It’s not only meant to use other guns, you also have to use Blaster a lot. I also recommend you to save some of the guns to access some secrets.

Yeah, and here are answers for all raters. If I don’t have any answers or comments about ratings, then I just put “Thanks for reviewing!”:

Snooz: Good, you fixed it. Thanks for reviewing!

dx dc: I think that sp-levels aren’t hosted very often. Eh? Co-op? Well, I don’t think that it would be very nice idea, and remember also that agreeing almost everything with another reviewer isn’t making a review or a rating properly.

Wadledee: Thanks for notice! I found out the problem. I just had forgotten to put also Castle2 Eclipse-tileset to the pack. Now I recommend you to re-download this, so you will get that tileset also with the episode.

NOKA: Thanks for reviewing!

Blackraptor: No. I wasn’t shocked very much of your rating and I don’t say that it’s unfair review, and that you even would have originally given me 6.2. Maybe the taste or style of my level-pack wasn’t interesting you. And you said that many things were evil. Doh, some people just don’t like evil and darkness. Well, my point isn’t making evil-levels but this was just because the storyline, you know. Hmmm, then I wondered about the eyecandy-thing. I really think that your eyecandy standards have gone some high. Did you really check out all the levels properly? …I really forced on the last levels more as I was more interested to finish it and put some special eyecandy. I know that it might suck in the first levels. Especially in “Attacking the fortress”, but I did so much work on the last levels, that the eyecandy on first ones shouldn’t decrease it so much. Well, everyone has his/her own opinions. Whatever, thanks for reviewing anyways, dude.

partybunny: I think you are overrating my level. I don’t like that my levels are overrated, it’s a shame. Especially when you have so less reasons to tell, why do you give me a 10. Just saying that it’s not too hard not too easy. I think you even didn’t play it at all further than the level 1, or the “final test”, to be said better. Because at least some others said that it was even a bit too hard and I think you wouldn’t be an elite then. Well, do not rate the level just by the first level, k thx.

BloodRabbit: Thanks for the note. I put the credits-tileset to the pack also and re-uploaded it, but I can’t put there that Christmas-tileset, because the file would be too big and the site couldn’t find it. You have to get that Xmas1-tileset separately from somewhere else. I think that tileset would be the most less important, which quite many should have.

chandie: Hey! C’mon, platform-jump games have this kind of “One-hit K.Os.” Have you ever played mario? Do you remember that when he falls to lava, he dies instantly. Erm, he dies otherwise too. :P
But what is a platform-jumping game without these kind of things? Well, seems that you never liked mario also then. Thanks for reviewing also.

sabaspaz: Thanks for reviewing. I anyways would have wished for more details but, that’s just ok anyways. :/

Alicia: Uh, so you are a finn also? Nice. If you want, you can freely rate this any time.

MazeMan: You’re my friend, so I thought that you wouldn’t rate my level because of that, like I don’t rate yours, but I allow you to do that in some case then. But if you made one, then you should have put a lot of more details and comments. I think that some admin will soon remove the rating-number from your review with that amount of details. And seems that you’ve just started to review some levels again, after a long pause from being using j2o.

Alexander BG: I wish you would have put your review in other style, but that’s just ok also. Hmm, so you think my episode is perfect? I think it’s a bit overrated, but as you gave at least enough details, I would like to thank you also for dueling. I really want to know the reason why does my level get 1, 3, 5, 7, 9, 10, etc. Always.. ;)

Once more, thanks for everyone who reviewed. :][This review has been edited by Superjazz]

WOW!!!!!!!
This episode is really good, well it’s one of the best, there are 25 lvls but some of theme are really short.
EYECANDY: Wow! Every level has lots of eyecandy in it.(like said Snooz)Very nice putted stuff, I liked some levels where eyecandy were confusing me all the time – it makes level much more interesting.
I didn’t really like the Underground tileset , but now where I saw this really interesting level which were using this tileset I was amazed that this is really this tileset, after a while I started to like this tileset -(thanks to this nice level)

TILESET USE:
One word : GREAT

great use of tilesets -well maybe I didn’t like the backgrounds of some levels for example the one which uses Medivo tileset, the background there is kind of odd.

GAMEPLAY:Yes, I think this is the best think about this episode pack. I really enjoyed playing this (Iwasn’t bored – and usually I am when I am playing other levels)

Placement:Good, lot’s of enemies not too much carrots -at least in medium version.

Total it will be 8.8 (I don’t show my calculations and the rating for each point but for TILESET USE would be 9.5)

Total is 8.8 so it will be 8.7 :)

Do more episode packs!
And I liked very much that this pack is using lots of custom tilesets so I will add .2 points so it gives 9.
Yes I like when people are using NOT overused tilesets!!!

Yay, an SP pack. Time to review:

Level 1: the final test: Argh, another carrotus level. It doesn’t seem to extraordinary or anything, and its basically an average level. I didn’t like some things here, and I found some eyecandy like around 32,11 confusing; eyecandy like this is hard to tell if its solid or not (there is more eyecandy like this through the level). The blackbound cave is evil. Anyways, i didn’t find this level to be spectacular or anything, and it kinda downgraded my thoughts for the entire pack because of its averageness. It could of been better, since it looks really dull.

Level 2: The final test (a continuation of the first level)
Again the evil cave, there could of been some flicker lights or steady lights placed there since its hard to see, but it’s alright and I can’t really take any marks off for it since it doesn’t quite reach the point where it would get that dark that I’d have to turn ambient lighting off or stuff. The rest of the level seems average, nothing spectacular.

Level 3: Attacking the fortress

A medivo level. There is more eyecandy here than the two previous levels, but that doesnt mean I like it more. Layer 4 stuff are used in layer 5 and again it gets hard to tell whats solid and whats not. The BG sucks (no offence). The level isn’t too long, and its fairly easy. I don’t like this level any better than the last two.

Level 4: Castle of Unlimitness

Argh, more darkness. Starts off as a maze, then you fight a schwartzenguard boss. Too short, too dark, and I hate the music. So far, I like this level least.

Level 5: Castle of unlimitness (continuation)
At first it looked extrememly spaz biased because jazz couldnt jump to the roof to get the airboard, but then I found the sucker tube. Anyways, you fly to the next tower, go down and to the exit through the maze. Fun? Not really. Same evil music.

Level 6: Evening rescue
This level looks more promising then the last few. Eyecandy is a bit better. Bridges look ugly, still a bit short and confusing, and Im not too fond of the clumps of enemies. Plus there’s that same darkness again, but even darker.

Level 7: Finding Eva.
Using a mez tileset, there are loads of eyecandy bugs here, and solid tiles used in layer 5 again. The BG isn’t any better than the one in medivo. There is a puzzle here, but it’s very simple.

Level 8: Escape.
Easy. All you have to do is run through the level and you can beat it in under 15 seconds.

Level 9: The underground tunnel
I have no idea what the heck I was suppose to do in the level so I skipped it.

Anyways, I don’t feel like writing a descriptive review on the rest of the levels, but they’re either average or below. To summarize my review:

Pros: There is a storyline, and there are a lot of levels

Cons: Eyecandy is bad, some levels are confusing, and it wasn’t really fun for me to play (I got bored at around the 10th or 11th level and just used jjnext to view the rest of the levels briefly).

Gameplay: Perhaps, it was alright except the large enemy clumps.
7/10

Eyecandy: There was eyecandy, but I just didn’t like it, too confusing, too few. Maybe I just played levels like The Episode or NIP too much that my eyecandy standards have gone too high. But it improved a bit in the last few levels, so 7/10 instead of 6/10
7/10

Placement of stuff: It wasn’t as bad as it could of been, but it wasnt shocking either
7/10.

Fun Factor: I didn’t find this really fun to play, and sadly to say I got too bored around the 11th level that I just used jjnext every time I got bored from that point on.
4/10

Originality: There were some new things, but there werent many. since its hard to come up with lots of original things in a 25-level pack I’ll leave this out.

OVERALL: It would of been 6.2, but Im being nice and giving this a 7.2. My opinion differs from the rest of yours so don’t start yelling at me that I rated this unfairly or anything. Some of the levels here (like the ones at the end) were above average, but they just dont make up for the large amount of levels that were below average. Maybe later I’ll up my rating of this a bit, but for now, 7.2.

Wow!! This is an excellent episode. The missions were really good. I like the amount of missons(9 missions and 1 extra mission.) Two of the tilesets were missing though. It was the credits tileset and the HH’98 tileset(Xmas1.j2t.)

The level design was good and there were original ideas in the game. But I have to tell you that 1 hit K.O.‘s were not good. When you fall, you die and start from the nearest save point. Use the 1 hit K.O. for mistaken moves like dropping the boxes or creates to the wrong places.

I downloaded this level earlier but my computer went crazzzyyy so I will download it again and rate. But I remember I thought it was very good and nice to play. Especially the story was nice. One of my faves.

Yeah! Superjazz strikes back :P Well..
You have done great episode and eyecandy is very good. Go on same way
;P
(Unsupported rating removal edit. Please provide more detail in your reviews – what makes this level great? Describe the eyecandy. Describe the gameplay. Describe anything. What are the upload’s flaws – why didn’t you just give it a 10? What could have been improved? What are your personal thoughts? There are ever so many things you can add to a review that make it more supported. ~Violet)[This review has been edited by Violet CLM]
