A photo of my tractor packed into a small battle level (best for instagib)
To make download smaller, build the tileset by yourself.
Shame that the level sucks. :/
The tileset idea is pretty awesome
Having to build the tileset myself was a bit annoying as I have never used the Build feature in JCS before but I then managed to figure out how to use it. But enough about that, here’s the review.
The eyecandy here is very original and something I have never seen before. The whole level is in the form of a Polish Tractor engine called the Ursus C-360 I guess. Never heard of it.
Everything looks really good and nothing looks repetitive. Though it was hard to see what you can walk on.
However, while this level does have excellent eyecandy, the size is far too small, it is only 40 × 30.
The whole level is far too easy to navigate, you can find all the Power-Ups and ammo easily.
WEAPONS & ITEM PLACEMENT
There are 5 PUs here, which is a bit much for a level of this size. The ammo grouping is far too big. You could easily get 50 ammo of all 5 weapons here. Aside from loads of ammo, there are 18 pieces of food which can start a Sugar Rush as these can be collected too easily.
There are 2 Carrots here, one “+1 Carrot” and one “Full NRG Carrot” which is too much for this level meaning that you could gain full health too quickly and easily.
TOTAL = 13/30
OVERALL MARK = 13 / 3 = 4.33 (RECURRING)
ROUNDED TO 4.3
While the level is not that great, I do think it would be worth checking out the tileset. So, I say YES for checking out the tileset, but unfortunately, NO for the level itself.
.bmp files are about as big as images can possibly get. There is no possible way it would not be simpler to build the tileset yourself and upload it with the .zip, rather than forcing people to download .bmp’s.
Eat your lima beans, Johnny.
