Thanks to anyone who downloads this, more thanks to anyone who reviews it, and the most thanks to anyone who uses it (and well).
I had been wanting to do a Xargon conversion for quite a long time. Then I discovered Labratkid made one, but that it was rather incomplete and wasn’t very organized. So I made my own. Included are day (diurnal) and night (gloaming) versions. There are multiple themes, plenty of eyecandy, and everything you’d expect from Xargon. I basically cleaned out most of the entire first episode (except the stone level which had horrible tiles). The entire set is 850 tiles.
Much credit to Labratkid for giving me lots of useful advice and ruthlessly betatesting. Thanks to Disguise for insulting the leaves. Thanks to Mike for saying he’d make a level but never becoming inspired, but still commenting on the set. Thanks for DarkShadow for looking over it as well.
Included is an absolutely beautiful CTF level called “Surreal Landscapes” by OLC member FireSword. He flawlessly shows how to use the tileset at its best. I have to thank him a lot for that too, especially on such short notice. Be sure to take a look at that level, and even better, host it.
My next set will either be another conversion of something or perhaps I’ll finally give in to Disguise and make an original set. We’ll see. Enjoy the set, everyone. I had a great time making it.

Looking at this makes me think if I’m playing jj2 or Xargon. Most tiles are there, can’t really tell if all of them are since I havent played Xargon for a while. Plus they are placed in a way which makes the tileset fairly easy to use. Plenty of animations, and it even includes the food and the crystals (but not the creatures =P). You even took the time to put in sucker tubes, destruct blocks, invisible tiles etc, so that a decent level can be made with this (as demonstrated by FireSworD). The palette is nicely done, I have a few small complaints about the masking of a few things, but whatever. This definately makes me want to make a level with it. Great work, and a definite download reccomendation. An 8.7, for all the reasons mentioned above. Rating might be upgraded/downgraded after further use of the tileset.
I saw all tiles… The rain is nice and the UNDERWATER tiles to… I luv that ctf that you made… Its a nice tileset. The other dark one is also good. texture background is nice and the walking tiles to. The ani-tiles ar also good. the door with the key and the others. You can make some nice levels with it also some good ctf. Ther up walk tiles and they work perfect. This is one of the best tilesets i guess form you spaztic. Anyway the mask is also nice… Some cave tile’s and Great waterfall tiles.. I hope you will make some ctf levels with it anyway.For layer 7 and mayby 6 nice mountains. Anf the mushrooms ar also good. The tree(s) Look also good… So…
here a nice good rating:
.:. 9.5 .:.

heh, this conversion is perfect IMO. i think i used to play Xargon like 6-7 years ago, so i can’t tell if all tiles are included, but i still think so. i don’t think this conversion misses any tiles, which is very good thing. there’s some nice extra stuff too, like the aweosme textured background, nice looking rain tiles, and some other stuff im too lazy to list. masking is very smooth too, and i like it. nothing wrong with the masking here. tile placement is good enough, and i think this tileset isn’t too hard to use. some animations can be hard to understand though. overall, this is very nice conversion by Spaztic. download is recommeded. im going to rate this as 8.5 for the reasons i’ve mentioned.
Eat your lima beans, Johnny.
