I was too lazy to d/l it and see what it was called.
This wasn’t made by me.

Well, I’ve been behind on my Rate of the Week lately so I thought I’d give one out early. Oh, I also rated how easy it was to install/download/the help file, now, too (called the install rating). It doesn’t go towards the level rating, tho. It is basically an out of three thing, with the highest rating +, then =, then -. If it is just so bad it doesn’t even deserve a rating it gets a _. Not too hard. Here goes:
First off, the new catagory. Well, the levelmaker convienently added the music file in the .zip… the one that came with JJ2. I had to sit through an extra few minutes of downloading (notice my slow modem) because of a file I already had. Marked off heavily just for that. The installation itself went smoothly, though, thankfully. On the other hand, though, the .txt file was brief, had no information about the level and was more of a plea to me on how to do “hollow stuff” than to help me or give me any information even remotely useful.
INSTALL RATING: -
Ick. Just eminates the feel of rushing. At least the background was original, and at least he tried to put out eyecandy, but it didn’t really put together smoothly. Not alot to say here, except “NEEDS WORK”.
Ooh, it hurts here. Bad design for a battle level with crates… just to get to useless TNT?!?!? Powerups were littered everywhere, and it looked like a mess. The layout itself wasn’t too bad except the carrot placement sucked and it needed to be smoothed out in a few places to be adequate for a Battle level.
TOTAL LAYOUT: 1.2/6
Eminated cruddiness, as said before, but surprisingly it didn’t feel that bad. Probably because the effort was there. Effort is what really counts here(to some extent, heheh), so that’s why it’s fairly graded high here.
OVERALL “FEEL”: .7/1
Closing Remarks: I’m sorry, but this is definitely not worth your download. A bit of the trouble was lack of experience with JCS (“how do you do hollow stuff?”), but that doesn’t make it any better. Heck, this is worse than my first level, and that thing SUCKED. Ironically, it’s not as boring, but at least mine was PLAYABLE. Nice try, but really, I think you should have kept this as a test level and put your resources into a project the public would actually want to play.
TOTAL SCORE: 2.4/10
ROUNDED SCORE: 2.5/10
INSTALL RATING: -
I like this level a tad more then SteelTalon i guess. I didn’t find the design too bad and there was even some eyecandy in the background (i have the feeling that it’s copied from some other level, though).
Sure, the tile placement is not really perfect in most places and the weapon selection isn’t very wise as well, but in my opinion the level still is playable. Unfortunately it uses the superoverused Carrottus tileset which makes me rate it lower :-)
Overall, not as bad as SteelTalon rated it (my opinion :-) but not really worth a download as well. Just needs a bit more work.
Please do NEVER include the original .j2b files from the game in your homecooked zip files. Makes no sense and is a waste of rare webspace. My suggestion: RE-UPLOAD without the music, PLEASE.
The next level setting is wrong/doesn’t work.
Well, the gameplay is good and stuff,
but the graphics (eyecandy like you call it) are not euhh very well finished. A little more attention to the tiles would be nice, but like Aiko i do like the background, but i don’t think there are any layers used
( is that what he asked in the .txt file maybe) well, overall if the tiles and stuff were placed nice it would be a good lvl i think
First and foremost of all, you should NEVER include standard music files. Everyone already as them (as ST mentioned.) and they just tend to waste disk space.
Second of all, I like this level’s background. And it has a nice backgound. Did I mention the background was good? At any rate, there isn’t much extremely pretty besides the background… the events in this level were pretty weirdly placed together. This also has a tacky layout and below the average eye candy. The readme has a request for information about how to make “hollow places” (if you have questions like this, direct them to the JCS forum of the JMMB, please.). Also, this level has some strange ideas…
Wooteedoo, not much of a reason to download this, unless you obsess over good backgrounds.
This was my brothers First level & I let him use my Name :-( .
He is making a new level pack & I think It is much much better (Because I did the eyecandy)
Is there any way to delete this ???
I want to delete it its junk!!
Plz tell me.
Ask Bobby aka DizZy or Fquist to delete it
Why in the heck do u want to delete this?
B/C its not mine & my brother (the rightful owner) has a updated one
Eat your lima beans, Johnny.
