Santa’s elves have gone mad and are stealing all the easter eggs! You get to stop them. :D
An earlier version of this upload was submitted to Jazz2City; download it here.
But if i wouldn’t notice here is the review.
Eyecandy has lots of bugs, you can get stuck very easy.
Gameplay is poor, you have a few crates and enemies get out of a wall after you stomp a crate.
Tileset use is good only that there are bugs(LOTS)
Music: The standard Easter music: Frolick Lane
Enemy placement: good/bad. Only respawning enemies will not do it.
Picups: Few picups but there are some in the boss arena.
Rate: I will rate a 4.5/10 because of bugs, gameplay
and lack of originality.
no! I can’t recommend something that’s stollen!
Oh well then i’m sorry! but my rating is the same!but DR is changed to N/A
Where’d you come up with elves? :P
You misused the tileset in a few places, but over all.. 6.2
"Easter elves" is another nice level using the TSF-Carrotus/Easter tileset.
The design is okay (despite the Xmas enemies don’t fit that good :
) and the eyecandy is pretty strange in some places. But that gives it an original touch, somehow :)
The main downfall of "Easter elves" is that it’s too short and easy (finished in less than 5 minutes max.).
If you are one of those bored single player fans, you may want to DOWNLOAD THiS.
P.S. Wrong version number 1.23 in the info (try the "edit info" function).
I used the Xmas enemies hence the name ‘elves’ (santa has elves, right?).
woops sorry about that, I’ll change teh version number to 1.24 now.
Weird I get a “Query problem” when I try to edit the info. Oh well, I’ll just say it here, then:
THIS LEVEL NEEDS TSF
A slightly above average single player level using the easter set. I liked the layout and enemy placement (I wasn’t too bothered by the christmas enemies) you could have improved the eye candy though. I felt some tiles were misused and repetitive at times.
Hmm, this level sure could use some music. ;-)
Overall BARELY a download recommendation.
Well, this level is pretty average. First, you used eye candy all wrong. You used the same eye candy, side by side on tiles. Not a great idea.
Only, Christmas enemies with Easter? Not smart. Remember, use enemies that fit well with the tileset.
Anyway, the good sides are event placement was pretty good. Not bad design. And the boss is pretty challenging.
To download or not is up to you.
Xmas enemies in Easter is the whole idea of the level. Haven’t you read the (short) story?
Santa’s elves are stealing easter eggs.
YES!!! WOOHOO! I HAVE TSF! BOW BEFORE YOUR KING*
I’ll rate this soon.
*You only bow if you do not have TSF.
There are too many eggs in the lvl. This makes the lvl bad. But I’m so glad that you didn’t use the Carrotus stuff.
Interestingly, this is one of the few levels that you see using Easter, which is an edit of Carrotus which instead of the Carrotus plants includes yep, you guessed it – eggs.
The level started off well, but it started becoming average quickly. All in all, this is a barely above average level, which I can’t recommend for download.
Hm… an interseting level…
It’s good. No long partsand stuff. A bit difficult at some pionts, expesseliy with the end boss, I’v got to less carrots :( . Only 1 spring combination, too bad, I like spring combinations… And you aren’t “pushed” together, so you can jump freely. Enough save points, and a nice idea of triggers. Too bad you copied that idea of that Turtles and that Trigger Crate…
PROS: Nice trigger stuff. Good ideas, some new some bad.
CONS: Only 1 spring combination. At some points you have to jump very long and thats makes me crazy! :)
Good, well atleast at some points. Some stuff is just “flat” and it isn’t looking very nice. And layer 5,6,7 and 8 are used for background eyecandy. I don’t like it when you use that layers for layer 4 eyecandy. Good cave part, it’s difficult to make eyecandy in that. At some points there just too much eyecandy. There are just too many eggs liying on the ground! And with that Trigger Crate, I only see a part of the platform… Some platforms are ugly and some nice…
PROS: Good eyecandy, nice layer 3 work for secrets and stuff. Nice work, with that grass on the ground.
CONS: Bad layer 5,6,7 and 8 work. You just used it for layer 4 eyecandy, next time make it better. Too many eggs and flowers at one place. And some platforms are flat.
Huh? Christmas enemies in a Easter level? Oh, wait I’v read your review. Okay, nice idea. But if you set in on hard there just too many enemies! Don’t put so much enemies in a level, okay? And when I destroyd that Trigger Crate, “millions” of enemies coming out of the floor. In this level you can find this enemies: I will count them :P
Oh, wait there just to many enemies! Xmas Turtles, Xmas Floating and normal Lizards. And the End Boss: Bilsy(You know that fire demon.)
CONS: Too many enemies at one place.
Almost no ammo and almost no carrots and only one Bouncer Power-up. More I have not to say…
CONS: Too less.
EASY, MEDIUM OR HARD?
Easy-medium. Between there
This is a kind of good level. Sometimes to much enemies, and strange enemies also! To bad some platforms are flat…
But the save points are okay, as you realy need them! Try to make some more action in your levels, make a story, make a good episode or something. And, instead of making that Bilsy Boss, I should have used the Tuff Boss. That Bisly boss is far too strong, because you only have 1 Power-up, a bit of ammo and low health.
Spent more time in your levels and practise, practise and practise. Maybe then your level will be realy good! And woud you please use layer 5,6,7 and 8 good? Mabye a download reccomend, it’s up to you. But if you realy want to play good eyecandy levels, don’t download this.
EDIT: Hey I got the longest review!
Forgot the rating. :P

@Mortalspaz: No, this level was made by Ninja Dodo. Shortly after the time of TSFs release, Epic held a competition on creating easter levels. The entries to this contest were all bundled together in CC’s release, which are the easter themed levels that come with the game. Basically, they are not by Epic; they were built by JJ2 fans.
Eat your lima beans, Johnny.
