Description

A collaboration.

Started at Christmas Eve 2008, followed by a month or a few of hiatus, it’s done and ready to be torn apart by critics and players and whoever.
Enjoy. We both are insanely proud of how this came out to be, so you’d better like this…

An okay battle level, a bit too holed for my taste. Eyecandy is fine. Could be bigger.

Ragnarok wanted more reviews for this, and I can see why. The level pretty much oozes polish and quality.

The level is notable for taking advantage of JJ2+‘s capability to have very long respawn times, as well as initial spawn delays. It’s also notable for not abusing said capability.

It’s a fairly typical level aside from that. Powerups, carrots, and ammo are all well-placed. Pits are present, but they honestly feel like they were added for flavor rather than gameplay reasons.

One unusual feature is the seeker powerup that can only be obtained by those with a sugar rush. Whether anyone will ever actually get it or not is anyone’s guess.

The level’s primary selling point is definitely its visuals. It is excellently and consistently decorated throughout, with quite a few creative methods of tileset usage.

What really caught me, though, was the level’s general lack of flaws. There are no usable camping spots, no spammable weapons, nothing of the sort.

Overall, this is a rare gem of a level, and should be treated as such.

I got to play an ffa here with some others.

I’m reviewing this through exchange.

What caught my attention first is the eye-candy. It’s quite varied throughout: Some places look solid, others look random and more natural. The eye-candy is well justified by the theme, which is about reveling a rain forest.

While the eye-candy is quite varied, the layout also reflects that. Is that a good thing? – While the level generally flows well with practice, the flow is quirky in some places, and I even got stuck near the seeker pu (you know the pos _ ).

Other game-play related things like carrots, power-ups and even food were placed well. I didn’t have much trouble gaining health; it wasn’t easy to become invincible, but not a struggle to stay alive either. The seeker pu, as far as I know, can only be obtained by using the copter to bypass a ceiling spring while you have a sugar rush. It’s not too hard to accomplish that, and I’m thankful such a power-up weapon takes some effort (and luck) to obtain, as seekers are quite deadly with this layout.

Not much else to say really. I encourage that players should try this level more in JDC events, public servers and ffa.
