When I joined the Jazz community, that was somewhere at the start of 2003, all of my tilesets sucked. That gave me the idea to try a program like Paint Shop Pro in order to make them better. When I finally got good enough to create a real tileset I decided to start simple by making a bricky tileset. So the name says it, Bricky Planet. It has a theme of four colors and every sort of brick (not the spikes) can be used into one of them. So you could do much variation into your levels. The tileset has only 80 tiles so it’s very small but it’s still big enough to make good levels, especially for a beginner level maker. Before reviewing this set, please finish the example level that shows how you could make a good level with this, and open the tileset in JCS, to see how anything is build. I also included a very simple music file with only a small beat and a few little samples. But remember, only review and rate the tileset, not the music file and the example level. Have fun with this set and have a Jazzy day!
Forgot: Download recommendation! It’s nice and easy to use, you have no excuse for not viewing this!
Long time since I reviewed a tileset… Here goes.
The tileset doesn’t quite look like a ‘planet’, but it can be used for an office or building pretty well. The background in the example level was really neat. It doesn’t look too bad. But still, I’ve seen better tilesets using a block theme. (Mez tilesets)
-Background (although it’s not a textured background, it looks pretty neat)
-No vines, but the poles could be used for vines.
-Also no destruct-blocks
-Even a HareKing logo. :)
Yep, quite complete.
Sadly enough, besides the good looking background, there are no eyecandy tiles. Although you could make complex looking walls and backgrounds with the normal ground tiles, you could have added a few eyecandy tiles, such as life wires, broken blocks, etc.
Not the most original concept I ever saw, but the idea was nice. It seems to miss the form of a ‘planet’, though. The signs look totally l33t though. :)
Good example level, a bit too linear. but it shows the benefits of the level very well.
You added music with the tileset name, so I figure it must be rated, too.
The music really wasn’t that good. It’s a simple beat, only drums, which continues all the time. But, for some reason, it fits. It’d fit a treasure level more than a SP level, though.
Nice looking tileset, ideal to work with if you are a ‘JCS Newbie’. It’s worth a 7, in my opinion.
The music seems a bit… rushed. Spend more time on it next time. =)
Eat your lima beans, Johnny.
