Description

This is my second ever upload to J2O. It is a battle level quickly named “Golden Bricks.”

It’s made with my favorite tileset , Scraparap.

There are lots of hidden things, too. Have fun and stuff.

Please review!

>O Fearofdark officially gets the Overrater of the Month award.

Theming and Eyecandy – 2 out of 5

I’m not sure how to describe the eyecandy here. While the layer 4 looks oderately decent (if tad bit bland), the background is what threw me off while playing the level. Layer 8 is untextured (…), and layers 6 and 7 consist of lots of golden blocks slowly floating over the background! Just like in levels from 1999. Most of the level was also quite squared off and not really looking good. One thing the author did take care of is the lighting effects; they aren’t good enough to improve the eyecandy as a whole, though.

Gameplay – 1 out of 5

At the first sight, this level looked like it could have decent gameplay. However, the first sight popped like a bubble after I actually began walking around it. This level suffers from several crucial problems which no battle level should ever suffer from anymore. Like _*Hurt events*_. Hurt events are something you should NEVER put in a Battle level. The rest of the level is rather mediocre as well. The flow is rather quirky (“challenges”, as Fearofdark puts it, should never be used in a multiplayer level), the level is small, and also somewhat cramped in itself. Fun? Not really.

Eventing – 1 out of 5

The eventing was about as sloppy as the gameplay. There have been a few really bad things here, namely a 40 second Water Shield out in the open. I can only condone a shield if it’s put in an expensive coin warp or if it’s a 15 second shield only. Also, this level has TNT and Frostbiter ammo (always a bad idea to put those two in battle), horizontal springs and pinball objects (ruin the flow), and too many carrots/powerups for this size. Not a very interesting placement.

Summary
  • The eyecandy isn’t what Zappo Egypt is…
  • Basically the rest of the level.

Overall
This level is one of your first levels and it shows. Don’t be discouraged, though – a lot of people’s first levels were like this. Also, if some things in this review weren’t particularly clear, read this article. It should explain most of stuff you didn’t understand. That is all I have to say.

I’ve notice your level hasn’t been getting any rewiews. So I bring you my review.

EYECANDY: 11/20
There is no visable backround eyecandy. The only foreground eyecandy is only included in challenging parts of the level.

GAMEPLAY: 17/20
There are challenges all round the level and a medium amount of normal gameplay (springs, warps ect.)

ITEMS: 16/20
Standard amount of items. A couple of Powerups and a shield.(Rewards for challenges)

SIZE: 17/20
Medium sized basic battle arena. But some areas are hard to move around in.

TILESET CHOICE: 8/10
A good scraparap conversion.

MUSIC: 4/5
Scraparap music But a good remix.

BONUS:
Challenges +3

SCORE: 76/100
RATING: 7.5
RATING RANK: OK (7-7.7)
DOWNLOAD: N/A
