This tileset was once used for Impressive Creations’ recreation of Jazz Jackrabbit 1 (Impressive Flashback), and now has been rendered obsolete by a different Medivo remake.
This level was supposed to be put into the IF pack, but the author decided it wasn’t good enough for the pack anymore. Now it’s an example level for the tileset, so do not rate it.

Really good tileset, especially some blocks came from original Jazz Jackrabbit 2 game. I recommend to download this! I will also use them for my future projects.
I haven’t reviewed downloads on J2O for a long while, so I may have to get a little used to it again. But since I’ve downloaded and played the example level included with this tileset, It really reminded me on how cool Jazz2 actually is! And ofcourse the level wasn’t so good without the greatness of this new Medivo tileset conversion!
This download includes one real tileset that was built to 4 different palette conversions. There is also a (really cool) example level included. You could see this tileset as a mix of the original JJ2 Medivo set and the JJ1 one. Like you’ll see the original stony Medivo ground and walls from JJ2, and the metal pipes from JJ1. There is also great rain and lightning effect, and ofcourse the great lava from JJ1.
This tileset has anything the Jazz2 gameplay needs. You know, poles, vines, tubes, etc. Other than that, also Jazz1 signs do have a place in this set to make Jazz1 based levels possible. The mix of JJ2 and JJ1 tiles flows greatly over each other and gives you a great feeling when playing levels created with this.
The use of the ideas for this set are good. You can make the original Jazz2 gameplay possible aswell as some different stuff. After all, Jazz2 has events based on the Medivo set and alot of enemies that fit with it’s style. This all means that much could be created with this set!
This tileset is one of the better tileset conversions on J2O, and I hope that we’ll see much levels using this in the future. Too bad that the great example level didn’t made it to the worthy IF pack.. Download recommended and a big 8.5 for the good work!
It was a good idea to make a different Medivo conversion, even though this is very good. Why? Continue reading the review.
This tileset is an edit of the Medivo set with some added JJ1 elements. Additions include: Lava falls, Sucker Tubes, metal pipes, some JJ1 style signs, poles, and a working Textured Background.
This conversion also makes Medivo have perfect masking, which is a major fix. There are the standard two palettes, plus a bright Red palette that resembles the JJ1 colouring, and dark brown/yellow palette. Unfortuneatly the lava falls look ugly in the 3rd and 4th palette. :(
The animation for them are buggy in all palettes too.
You could of also of found a use for the Bee-hive and made Rain avalible in single drops rather than just in clusters. Those custom destruct blocks and the poles looks awesome though. In general this is a great Medivo conversion as it is, but it doesn’t really resemble JJ1 medivo that much, it’s more of a JJ2 medivo with some of JJ1 medivo’s elements like I said earlier. Even with all those cons I have said in the review it is still a great edit, and I do plan on using it.
@Hitch: They meant the example level, you can still rate the tileset.
Rating Medivo conversions:
They all add signs from JJ1,and those good-looking sucker tubes.the textured backgrounds look awesome,especially in the 2nd tileset.Good levels can be maked with these tilesets,but do not use lava too much,because lava animations are kinda buggy.the poles with those diamond-like things are cool!Like I said before,good levels can be maked with these tilesets.

I was suprised by this upload and downloaded it for looking if i missed something that was fitting my battle game well…
But i am a little bit disapointed about this; Masking is very well done but i didnt have any problems with it.
What i like to see in new conversions are nice new eyecandy, like new statue’s in medivo and things to make the ground look nicer & new animation tiles eyecandy.
The poles are nice, but i didn’t like the gray looking balks and sucker tubes,
it isn’t fitting in a medivo set.
The Lavafalls are nice but that is nothing new..
Well! Very nice set, great eyecandy, several different color variations, not much buggage, lots of perfectly usable tiles, and many possibilities. My favorite color is #4, but #1 is cool too.
It’s too bad this was not deemed good enough, because it has great potential.
Downsides: A few select tiles are missing from the original JJ2 Medivo [like the demon head, but this can be flipped], and I might have liked a bit more variation. But its still good, and takes my DL recommendation.
Eat your lima beans, Johnny.
