Description

I pulled a Wisety.

I figure if Disguise can do it, why can’t I? Here’s my first tileset release on my birthday, so happy birthday from me to you. This is basically the remake of my entry for Disguise’s tileset contest, except ten times better. The zip contains three versions of the set, four example levels, and a battle level. Only rate the three tilesets.And in case you were wondering, this tileset was made primarily for multiplayer, not single player.

Happy birthday to you…Blur

But now onto review.

———————————————

TILE AMOUNT / USEFULNESS
Yes, there is quite big choice of tiles which to use, and they are quite handful and look fine. Nothing else to add…Maybe something very little lacks or some things could have been done better that I would give 10, but 9 is fine also. Maybe some destruct scenery, etc.
9/10

GRAPHICS / EYECANDY
It’s fine but I would have wished for more background-eyecandy stuff, like mountains or desert.
9/10

TILE LINKING
This is perfect! This doesn’t seem to lack any kind of a tile like a bottom of a floor for an example.
10/10

ORIGINALITY
Some tiles look some about the disguise-tileset type and the turret idea also. It’s fine but not really original idea. I give this 8 in this case.
8/10

EVENT STUFF
I saw hook, vine and something else like this. But I waited for some more of animating tiles and lack of hurt-events I also noticed. I know as the blur said that this is basically meant for multiplayer-levels, like ctf, battle but there could be some kind of them anyways.
8/10

REALIZATION
It looks quite nice and it really involves me into the tileset like I would really be there, it doesn’t look so silly that I would be so confused. But how about this wind then?
9/10

+ OR – EXTRA POINTS

-1 No readme or another kind of information
+1 Example levels
+1 Three types of tilesets

OVERALL: 52:6=8.67~8.7
TILESET RANK: Good tileset
DOWNLOAD RECOMMENDATION: Probably yes, this can be useful.

ENDING COMMENTS: Nice tileset! I think that I’m gonna use this tileset some time and others also. Once more, happy birthday for you and your tileset. Unfortunately I don’t have a present for you. ;P
It looks like I would be able to build some kind of modern castle as this is a fortress, and windy one.
PS. YAY!!! Doom-sound effects in the music you included in this pack for the battle level. r0x!

I may be late, but Happy Birthday anyway. My review is coming up.
Introduction: This is a tileset created by BlurredD, and I heard him talking about this tileset somewhere.
Eye candy/animations: this tileset is full of eye candy. There is alot of stuff in it. There are alot of that brown tiles or however it is called. The tileset has alot of animations in it. I saw that in the example level. This tileset has more than one sort of platform to run on. This is a good thing, because it will be boring if there is one. That’s why the tileset is quite big.
Easy to use: This tileset is not like Blade’s first tilesets, but also not like Agama’s. I think this tileset is not too easy to use, but also not too hard. I think it’s quite hard to make no bugs in your levels with this tileset, but I think you don’t have too many problems with that if you are good in level creating.
Size: This tileset has 940 tiles, and that’s quite big. This means it’s not too easy to use it very good, but you can use some parts of it and if you are planning to make more levels with it, use other parts of it.
Build with this: Yes, you should build with this if you are bored and can’t find a tileset to make a level with. If you are not good in creating levels, you should try an easy tileset first. But you will probably become better and after some time, you can use this tileset too.
Do I build with this: Maybe, if I am bored from some tilesets.
Others: I recommend you to build Multiplayer levels with this tileset, like BlurredD already said in the description of this tileset.
Conclusion: This is a nice tileset created by BlurredD. Download recommendation: if you are good in JCS and just want to use new tilesets for your levels. No download recommendation: If you hate tilesets or creating levels.
My final rating: 9.0. – DarkSonic of XSÐ, CC and XLM was here.

First off, happy birthday.

The tileset is very pleasing to look at. There are some cool tiles you casn use to make effects like lightning, which can add a lot to the feel of a level using the set. But best of all, the set is farily easy to use. It’s pretty easy to find the tiles you’re looking for, and so far I haven’t found any tiles that seem to clash or mismatch at all.

THE GOOD:
Looks nice, great animations.

THE BAD:
Inexperienced level makers may have trouble using it properly.

THE UGLY:
I can’t really find anything “UGLY” about this set, except that I strongly feel it needs to have Fooruman in it.

One of my favourite tilesets.
Much better than Mega metropolis!
Very cool foreground tiles.
Background is excelent.
And that turret is very cool too.

BlurredD holds nothing back as he unleashes the fury of the storms, jolly good thing Jazz has the ability to hide in the fortress, hm?

Art Style:

Subtle, it doesn’t scream “EYECANDY!” at you on first sight. It creeps up, but is just as good looking. I for one could never make a tileset anywhere near as good as that. This one claims a 7.5

Diversity of Tiles:

Hm, there is much to be desired here, but that’s not a problem to a skilled JCS’er. As for the clouds, though, I’ve never seen any other tileset that even comes close to doing that, and with WSF you get the double whammy of the advanced lightning effects. I just WISH that the rain was better done. Even after a slashing from the weak rain, it still gets a 6.8

Layer Management:

BlurredD never seems to have trouble with this. WSF can make levels look good regardless of layer configuration. Having chewed up the lesser tilesets, WSF takes a good 7.6 here.

Environment:

One of the few times I’d do a castle level, I’d choose this without any hesitiation. Most of the other castle tilesets can’t even hold a candle to this. This gets a solid 8.0

Result:

Art Style – 7.5
Diversity of Tiles – 6.8
Layer Management – 7.6
Environment – 8.0

Total —> 7.475

Final Rating: 7.5
