Another swamp level?
Let’s review :-)

Gameplay/Design:
Gameplay is ok. It’s nothing special but ok. It has some ice guns (only ice? PUT IN TNT GUY) and uses springs and some other things. It isn’t very long, but for a race the size is good.
You should make coin based exit, so we can host over internet.

Eyecandy/Tileset Use:
Eyecandy was good. It looks like a jungle and there are some animations.
I also like the blinking arrow :-)
There are no tilebugs, and most tiles are used I think.

Enemy/Item/Ammo Placement:
Bad! There is only some freezer.
TNT or 3way can be very fun in races. but there’s only ice.

Other:
->music is bad >_<

Overall:
Overall it’s an ok race level using a good tileset and bad music.
Host: doesn’t use coin based exit so no hosting
Download: If you wanna see good eyecandy, yes
If you wanna see a REALLY good race level not
It’s ok
FINAL RATING: 6.5

-PHT

PS: congrats for your entry into that level maker team thingy. :-)

Mmm… Let’s check out this new level of Dx, which will be my first race review… I have to change some points in my usual review I guess.

EYECANDY:
Standard Dx quality. For your convenience, this means GOOD. Dx knows how to use the Swamps tileset, and he can make really good levels wiht it (look at his survivors) In the beginning of the level, the eyecandy is really superb, but later I think he didnt have the spirit anymore to make more eyecandy, so he kept it simpler in the later parts of the level. The background is a little bit dull, just the brown tress. The tileset offers better, I guess.

FLOW:
The important thing in a Race level, how good is the flow? You can’t make it racelevel without a good flow, it slows down the gameplay and makes it boring. For race, a really good flow is needed to keep the game funny. The flow here is decent, There is enough open space to move and there are no big slowdowns which kill the flow (except the annoying blue spring maybe, but this is part of the game I guess) Overall, the flow is good enough, not the best.

GAMEPLAY:
And how does the game feel, really? Not that good. I’ve seen better race levels, but I’m not really a lover of the genre, so I accept it. The blue spring really kills a lot of the speed, but it makes the game more fun to play, especially in multiplayer (which player will get through the corrdidor first?) The gampelay is not bad, not really good. Maybe the dull eyecandy in later parts of the level help, and the music simply doens’t fit a race level (it’s far too slow and boring)

————
RATINGS
————
Not a bad attempt to create a race game, however, if the eyecandy in the later parts of the level was more interesting and the flow was a little bit better, this level could get rated way higher. Now, it’s somewhere in the middle-class.

Score: a 7.0.
Download: Yes, if you like race.
Host: You can’t really host this one online, because it doens’t have online capacities.

i don`t want to review but Ðx was crying for it so i needed to review. Well here it is.

EYECANDY:
Good!!! The eyecandy rocks here. I can see that Ðx did his best to make good eyecandy and he also did that. Let me tell you what good is about the eyecandy. There are multiple layers used for the background. There is a normal background and there are trees in layer 7 and layer 6 and 5 are used for eyecandy stuff that is going as fast as layer 4. I can see in layer 5 and 6 a lot of leaves bushes trees and good animations. Although i see some weird things that not really look well the eyecandy would be better without that. I also see parts with double ground and that`s looking nice. Although the eyecandy is mostly good in some places it`s still looking dull and empty there could be more. Also a detail is the cool arrow. Well that`s not all, there is also a lot of eyecandy in layer 1,2 and 3. I see rain and in the other foreground layers there are leaves plant`s bushes and much more good. I think that there could be more eyecandy in layer 4 but the level still looks great. I don`t see any tilesbugs that`s good. That was about it.

Placement:
Fine!!! There is not much to tell about the ammo placement. The ammo is well placed but there is only ice i think that there also could be TNT and maybe some bouncers. I think that the rest is fine placed. The springs take you where you need to go except one. hmmmm….. that was about it.

GAMEPLAY:
Fine!!! This level is quite fun to race against someone but i think only once. The level is not really specail but there are some good things. In this race level there are multiple obstacles and things you have to do like jumping from tree to tree and if you fall you have to do a part over again that`s good. Then you fall down and then there is a obstacle that would take time to do. There is a pole and a bleu spring you have to freeze the bleu spring before you hit the spring and get bounced back again quite good but nothing new. Then there is a obstacle when you have to clime up with vines BUT that`s really Spazz baised because Spazz can jump higher and skip some vines and Jazz can`t so you can`t really win the race if you play with Jazz against Spazz that`s not really good. The start positions are unfair placed because one start pos can Run but the other first needs to fall down and then you are losing speed. Could be way better but till oke.

OTHERS:
Good!!! the level is not really big but big enough and i disagree with ChippieBw and PHT about the music i think it fits in the level. There is a next level settings and the music is included so this part is good.

Conclusion: A fine level and fun but it can be so much better a ¤7.2¤.

Eh?

eyecandy,
In a lvl whith that colors and that space you should remove the rain.

Gameplay,
Its a little strange for a race lvl like the plants you have to jump on
and its also too long for a race lvl.

Ammo,
quit ok

Rates
eyecandy: 3.5
gameplay: 4,5
Ammo: 5.5

Final rate: 4.5
