Description

I made 8 levels wich contain only a boss. Not just a easy simply jj2 boss. Every level has it own tactic to defeat the boss.

Well have fun..

REUPLOAD: Oeps, missed level 1.

Like, wtf? Why did you make this?! This is just 8 similar bosses all in really frustrating arenas that take all the fun out of fighting the bosses. More effort next time, please.

wow, they’re really hard. the only one i’ve managed to make through is the one with bolly, and that’s because I’ve first destroyed all spikes. this pack is really, really too hard. I don’t mind the lack of eyecandy though (it’s a practice level, they don’t need eyecandy)

This pack was predictable like no other. In half of the total 8 boss combats, Tuf Bosses are put out of player’s reach to back up the otherwise weak boss. That way of making a boss harder is older than I remember, probably dating back to Violet’s TTJJ2 pack (precisely, its final level). Old or not, it’s okay if done right, but six Tuf Bosses at once in the first level definitely isn’t right.

Tuf Bosses aside, these levels are filled with other hazards, mostly spikes and respawning enemies (more annoying cliches), spike balls and smoke rings to a lesser extent. None of those are affected by difficulty settings for some reason or another, which is unacceptable.

Some (unfortunately, not all) of the levels seem to have the general idea behind, which is hindered by the lacking execution. The penultimate level (which I like the most because it doesn’t have Tuf Bosses) becomes the easiest once you figure it out – which is a shame.

There’s not much else that can be said about this. I did not mention the visual aspects because this pack is apparently devoid of those. These levels are repetitive, frustrating, and don’t seem to have taken more than 5 minutes to make, each. If you say that 5 minutes is too less, then ask yourself if these levels were at all tested.

Rating Bosses

To start:
I thought it was a Boss fight training, but when I encountered the first Boss, I think everyone who uses this pack as a Boss fight training is ill.

Eyecandy: (20 pts)
The Eyecandy is fair, however all of the levels are set in the castle. I think it was better if you have chosen eight different tilesets for all levels. I think if you have chosen eight different tilesets, I would give you more of the twenty possible points. But in the fifth level you used a pretty good Castle Eyecandy with those moving platforms. And in the second Boss level there are flying springs. I don’t see this very often. So I think it’s a bad fair gameplay, but you can do better!
Result: 7 pts

Gameplay: (20 pts)
BAAAAAAAD. There are eight ‘Boss-fights’, but I think it are eight ‘Boss Tortures’, because it is almost impossible to kill one of the eight Bosses. In each level Tuf Bosses are hidden behind the wall (so they are out of player’s reach). Maybe it was better if you have used one or two Tuf Bosses, and NO MORE than three! You have used at least SIX Tuf Bosses and that’s the reason why the Bosses are almost impossible to kill.
Result: 0 pts

Story: (10 pts)
There is no story. So this factor does not count for your final rating.
Result: N/A

Obstacle placement: (20 pts)
Very-very bad. There are too many Tuf Bosses, but apart from them, there are also respawning enemies, smoke rings, Spike Balls and loads of spikes. And you can guess it: MUCH-MUCH-MUCH TOO MANY OF THEM!
Result: 0 pts

Bonus placement: (10 pts)
No bonuses, but you really needs them, because without carrots it is impossible to kill the Bosses! So once again no points.
Result: 0 pts

Conclusion
You do not need arenas with Tuf Bosses in it to make a Boss harder. For example, download this level.
http://www.jazz2online.com/J2Ov2/downloads/info.php?levelID=1908
And if you want to create a… well… nontraditional Boss, download these examples. http://www.jazz2online.com/J2Ov2/downloads/info.php?levelID=4930
And also my friend Gus uses nontraditional Bosses, so please download those packs.

Check them out and then try again.

Bah, don’t rate something which was considered as fun training.
It is fun to beat the bosses the ways Dx thought up to beat them. It wasn’t for eyecandy or something. Seriously, if you bash this so much, I’d say this is as boring as the JJ2 SP challenges Valco thought up. I am not gonna bash those either, so get rid of these levels if you’re gonna rate them for eyecandy or sth. They’re fun ;\. OR rather, they’re as frustrating as the SP challenges however these are shorter than the challenges :).
Sorry if it sounds like a Personal Attack, wasn’t mean like that. I just make my point clear>: [

My god. If you want to have fun with hard bosses, this is it. This is harder then trying to beat Jazz 2 without getting hit, on hard, with only blaster, and only 20 enemies defeated!

Eyecandey
Wow. did you even try? No this is bad. just a couple of castle blocks put together to make the most boring thing I’ve ever seen. I can’t stand the eyecandey.
1/10
Gameplay
You may think that this may be fun but no. the bosses are impossible. You got dragons, vines, spikes, and tuff bosses in one little arena making it look like a room of torture. The bosses are impossible to defeat without JJGOD enabled. Even if this for a joke, tit’s not funny.
1/10
Ammo
AH! No enough. You WILL be using your blaster the most and with all those enemies, you might as well write out your will right now.
1/10
Enemies
EVIL! The room is trying to kill you. You won’t live!

Ran out of ideas, Ðx? I remember making the exact same without Tuff Bosses four years ago, if not more.

Edit: Okay, it was three years ago.
