Description

Basically, this is my submission to the Domination contest held by Rag.
Because of the immense amount of CPs (6!!!!) A max score of 100 or higher should be decent; 175 is recommended.
… I might have over used the ammo a bit, but hey! Nobody’s perfect! ;P

Something happened to me today while I was playing Jimbob’s Highland Glaciers, something that has (thankfully) RARELY ever happened to me when playing Jazz Jackrabbit 2.

When I played the level, I was confused…impressed…disappointed…incredulous…all at the same exact time.

And fellers, that’s hard to accomplish.

Highland Glaciers is a study in consternation and unexpected surprises. There’s HUGE clumps of ammo littered all over the place. Powerups in plain sight. A boatload of capture points. A seeker powerup with a carrot and a capture point, all of which can be camped upon ‘til the cows come home.

Huh?

The level also made some eyebrow-raising eyecandy choices, with clusters of twinkling sparks in various places, an off-color Layer 8 background, and some water that’s apparently supposed to make the point that this is a glacier, or the very least, a fjord.

It was a tough sell.

Music worked decently well for the level, once it got far enough into the song. I won’t quibble too much here.

Gameplay, on the other hand, was brilliant. The level flowed quite smoothly, and I liked the shape, size and overall structure of HG. That was well executed.

Hence the consternation.

Did I like Highland Glaciers? I guess so…but that’s a VERY tentative “guess so”. There was nothing visually offensive or hard to ignore in terms of eyecandy, and once I got over the initial shock of the amount of weapons, it was reasonably fun to play.

If this qualifies a download rec, then I guess I’ll give it my blessing.
