After playing Chet208’s “froger or bider” level, I decided to have a shot at making one like it but with better Eyecandy, more tiles used and puzzles thrown in and some secrets too. At the end of one of your chosen paths you will face Devan.
Some things will be different in each difficulty:
Easy = More Carrots & 1UPs.
Medium = Slightly less Carrots and less 1UPs.
HARD = Even less Carrots. Just one 1UP on hidden each path. Extra Bilsy boss to make Devan battle much harder.
Tileset & Music included.
Stupid IE wouldn’t let me submit this before.
EDIT: Sorry for making it TSF but the 1.23 version of my JCS has vanished.
EDIT 2: WARNING I have also included an Alternate boss2.j2b file. BACKUP your original file first!!
EDIT 3: I have added more masking to the passages now. I hope it’s better.
EDIT 4: I have decided to make another one of these levels but it may take longer because it’s gonna be bigger. I’m gonna make it 1000 × 550. This one was just 256 × 64.
EDIT 5: If no one likes the custom boss music then I won’t use it in the sequel or any other levels.
Rating Froggy or Birdie
This level are absolutely not particular and fairly small and with that no recommendation.
Eyecandy: (20 pts)
There is no forefront. There is a context, but that is absolute not well, only layer 8 was used to my idea. The paths are also not real particular.
Result: 6 pts
Gameplay: (20 pts)
Firstly you must choose or you play the level as a frog or as bird. Afterwards you must fly or jump a zone, between lasers and over pools. To end descend there are lots of Tuf Turtles. In that area you must find TNT to start the fight with Devan. Original considered, however there are already levels with a rabbit as frog or bird.
Result: 13 pts
Story: (10 pts)
There is no story. So this factor does not count your rating.
Obstacle placement: (20 pts)
The level is short, but here and there very difficult, for example at the Tuf Turtles, where you must search TNT.
Result: 14 pts
Bonus placement: (10 pts)
The bonusses are placed badly. For example if you play on Easy. there are much too much carrots and 1UPs then.
Result: 3 pts
Total points: 36
Maximum number of points: 80-10(story)= 70
Final Rating: 5,6
Download recommendation: N/A
Without having anything else to say, let me just comment on the custom boss music.
It hurts ears.
How do I mask the Foreground Tiles?
Also, why hasn’t anyone rated my Super Jazz Brothers 3 pack?
EDIT: Oh, ok thanks. So don’t just mask the passage but also the tiles AROUND the passage.
@Donda97: Here’s how to make j2b files.
1. Download Mod2j2b from here: http://www.dutchfurs.com/~haze/blog/files.php?cat=files&dir=files/pc/utils
2. Put it in the folder where you installed Jazz 2 (Probably C:/Games/Jazz2.) TSF or 1.23 will work.
3. In the Start Menu click “Run,” browse to where mod2j2b is and open it.
4. Type in the filename of the music you want to convert. Type like this: “C:/Games/Jazz2/modj2b.exe” insertfilenamehere.it
5. It will work on XM, S3M, IT and 669 formats. Won’t work on MP3, WAV, WMA or anything else.
6. The file should be converted to j2b now. It will be the same filename but with a .j2b extension.
This is a good level.
It was ok, but when you used layer 3 to make paths I could see Jazz from the top and bottom.
The gameplay was very good, as there are two paths so that increases replay value.
The level is good generally, but it was a bit short, lacked eyecandy, and the bird flew away often, but I expect that “Froggy or Birdy 2” will be much better.
Bad. Just bad. I first played as froggie, which seemed to do fine. I died, and then I played birdie. I lost my bird, and since I don’t like it when it is neccesary to cheat, I commited suicide by the bat. Then, I respawned as birdie, and I wanted to play froggie again. But when I entered the way to the frog, I became stuck. Bad!
[Rating (3.5) clearance. Aside from one bug, this review said nothing about the level. ~Cooba]
Well, hmm. I can’t rate that easily because that is no fun or that:)
you asked to use cheats in that:)
The frog doesn’t jump high and if I don’t jump to the other ledge i’ll fall to a pond of fish and restart and this is not fair beacause I am not used to frogs and this can be too hard!
U put a cage and a transform into a bird thing.+ I am not the thing!
The bird flies and it was the real time
to need. you needed to put another bird cage with the one with the tnt and I used jjbird to complete that.
No sense only layers 8, 4, 3 and (5,6 or 7) but i am not sure that those are used. but liked it.
triggers and pickups:
U inserted fake crates and fake TNT and that was not good but I adore tricks so a five is yours with that.
But the worse is u put the original in hidden places which is slightly tricky.
but I dont like.
Rating:5 you are lucky because the fakes which I like.
Improve your level by making more things
I think the switchenguards You putted were enough with devan so this will cause reducing because of your put to bilsy in hard which I hate bilsy.
Download:I can’t decide beacuse that was medium and so I’ll give yes.
How do you make J2b? THanks.
Not that great.
Eyecandy 2/5: It was okay for the tileset used, but it could have been better. You need to properly mask the foreground tiles when you make a secret passage. There were parts where I could see my sprite through the wall.
Gameplay 1/5: It was mostly hurt events and areas crowded with baddies. You didn’t really make anything challenging or creative. The level was far too short.
Item placement: Since this was a custom level, it didn’t really need a whole lot of ammo or powerups. However, if the level had been longer, you could have added more food.
Fun factor: Yeah, it was a good concept, but it could have been done better.
EDIT: Go into layer 3 and put extra tiles around the other passage tiles to hide the character’s sprite.
Eat your lima beans, Johnny.
