Starting Comments
I downloaded the level. Before I played it, I already saw this for a minute or two in a battle server I joined yesterday. I think it’s time to review it.

Gameplay
The gameplay of this level is nothing more than plain brilliant. You can just hold your shift-button and one direction and you will get about everywhere easily. The flow is great. The speed is great! I only had to jump one or two times before I could see the whole level!
_Gameplay = Magnificent! _

Placement
The ammo placement was also very good. Nicely spread around, no useless weapons, some fastfires were placed a bit close to eachother, but the rest was okay. What I didn’t like was the PU placement. The Seeker PU was too easy to get. The ElectroBlaster PU is quite useless, exept for the fact that it gives you ammo. The RF PU was nice, though. Placed under a spring, you stomp it automaticly when you just run up some staircases. That was cool.
_Placement = Good _

Eyecandy
First of all, your use of the background wasn’t quite what I expected. I just though: “What? Only smoke and a black background?” When I looked at the tileset, I saw that you didn’t had much of a chance. You did a good job with it. The layer 3 eyecandy was also good, I like the curvy edges in front of the wall.
_Eyecandy = Quite good _

Music
Music choice wasn’t the best. It fitted in with the level perfectly. It has the agression that your level shows, but still, I would go with another music file, but that’s personal preferrance. It was a bit too agressive, in my opinion ofcourse. Strangely enough, I knew the music, while it wasn’t even in my folder… Strange. Did you rename it or something? =D
_Music = So-so… _

Originality
What can I say? It’s a battle level, I’ve seen this kind of structure before. Still, the springs+wind are quite original, just like the ‘run into your PU’ idea. I quite enjoyed playing this.
_Originality = Good _

Score
If it was an eyecandy contest, I’d give you a 10. Simply because it’s not, I’ll give you an 8.5 on basic score.
_Score = 8.5 _

Bonusses/substractions
I just can’t seem to forget the ‘run into your PU’ thing… That really made my day. =D
_Added Score = +0.5 _

Download Recommendation
Sure, it’s fun to host with about 5 people. Then again, I wouldn’t wanna host this on friday evening or something.

Further comment
I see that you have made time for this within your busy schedule for Jazz X. Still, you got talent. Use it wisely. =D

We should be seeing a lot more of this level; it’s fun, smooth, even a little strategy is involved. However, there are a few quriks you should consider for it to become popular:

I suggest making a v2. Get rid of the carrot barrel by the bouncer powerup, it’s critical you do this. Take that extra green spreen out at the top left, you know which one, it disrupts the flow. There are some tiles you can get caught on at around the pos 26,31, they are annoying. The +1 and ANOTHER Bouncer powerup at the right side should definitely be taken care of: rid of or move the +1 and replace the bouncer power with some other powerup.

[Just using a lot of line breaks isn’t going to make this a good review. Badly reviewed and overrated.]
