The weakest of the Agama tilesets. The drawing quality is lower than that of other Agama sets (although it is still pretty good), and the theme is not too justified. On the bright side of things, this tileset contains of a lot of originality and is ideal for creating an abstract level.

Wow! This tileset is great. This sure does look like jazz1, but it is completely origninal instead. Don’t worry about that though, because it is just as high quality as a jazz1 set, if not better. The tileset has all of the essencials, plus a couple of cool features such as an elevator. Almost any type of level can be created with this set, although I think it would be easier to make a multiplayer level with it. As soon as I finish my current level, I am going to try and use this tileset and see if I come up with anything good. Most of the time I don’t even consider using most tilesets, and only download them so I can play levels made with them. This is one exception though, and I congratulate the authour for making a tileset this good. Although I still think the tileset “Heaven” is a bit better, I am awarding this an 8.7, which is a pretty high score for me to give out.

Please continue making tilesets, Agama, because the quality of your work rivals all of todays current expert tileset makers.

Oh wow…the guys are right: another awesome(!!!) tileset creation from my neighbour country Czechia!

“Sirius” (actual name in JCS is “Dimensions”) consists of nearly 700(!) best looking tiles and has all kinds of fancy stuff like animations, vines, poles, a swinging f1 racing finish flag, large golden tubes and so on (too much to list it here). It comes in three different versions using three different shades/palettes…gold, silver and bronze if i’m not completely wrong. The masking is also very good (and it is NOT automasked, JelZe ;-).
Not to forget the stunning single player example level Agama put in the pack: eyecandy fever! Looks real beautiful, if you ask me. For the background, the author chose “Rocket Life”, a classic Fasttracker MOD by Laxity of MoN, a danish elite tracker. The tune fits great.

As you probably noticed, i really REALLY like this tileset pack. It is quite impressing and without any doubt, i RECOMMEND iT AS A MUST DOWNLOAD FOR ALL OF YOU!
But now…go ahead and make some good (battle :-) levels, Jazzers!
And Agama, a gold medal is reserved for you.

I believe the official name of “Czechia” is The Czech Republic, Aiko :p

Yet again, another amazing tileset from Agama. He already surprised with the Heaven tileset, but this one’s the same quality. Like the author said, it looks like mixed tiles from JJ1. Here’s what i discovered (they only LOOK like JJ1 tiles, mind you): – glowing walls from Tubelectric – pipes from Orbitus – fans from Fanolint
The example level (i wish Agama had shown off each of the three sets ;) ) has great eye candy and music (rocket.xm, see Aiko the music expert’s review), but thats all there is too it. O well, can’t win’em all :)

This is a MUST-download, just like the Heaven tileset :)

Excellent tileset. Easy to use, nice eyecandy (i love the golden pipe effect when you make the pipes translucent.. :) There aren’t too many tiles to make a person confused, and almost everything is well grouped together…

Well done Agama.. Keep up the good work!

The perfect description for this would be ‘jazz 1 tileset remake.’

The tileset has big parts and presumably the idea of the tubelectric 1, the orbitus and the crisilis tilesets in jazz 1, but way better looking and adjusted to jazz 2 play, as most of the others actually really arent.

The tileset is big enough and has loads of animations and layer potential so it leaves me with only one rating to give.

Yes you’ve guessed it.

I know there are already losts of reviews about this extremely good tileset but I just want to rate this kinda “piece of perfect” :-) I think this is a very wild, Cool tileset that will make u fight. Thats why I think this tileset is great for battles. Very nice funky colours and things…yes, this is how a tileset should be. :)

Overall this is really my style and I think almost everybody should like it..yes if I check the other reviews ;)

Keep up the GREAT tileset making agama.

Very nice set. It’s quite orriginal compared to most of the sets that borrow tiles from JJ1, and it’s very orriginal.

Unfortunately, very few of the tiles are actually orriginal. The set includes tiles from or that closely mimic (JJ1):

~The glowing walls in tubelectric
~The tubes / pipes and waterfalls from Dreampipes,
~Most of the Crystal ground from Either that one level with the rocket rats, or Chrysallis
~A lot of metal stuff from Orbitus.
~Fans from Fanolith
~Other varies tiles somehow related to Jazz 1….

Don’t get me wrong here, I’m not saying the set is just another jazz 1 set. It’s a set that’s not easy to tell that it has any holds in JJ1 unless you’ve pplayed JJ1 alot and are familiar with the levels.

Very nice setup and tile editation allows for high detail abilities, and the set is not too dificult to make levels with (the crystal ground can be quite tricky)

Nice example level. It shows what can really be done with the set.

I think labrat music would work a lot better than the music included with the set (rocket.xm) which I found quite boring.

Overall, I give it a 8.
Why? IT has all the essential aspects needed for a quality Jazz 2 level, very nice looking. Nice aspects from JJ1.

However, It’s to much of a copy from JJ1 to get a higher rating than 8 (imo)

Good Job Agama! I look forward to seeing more from you.

Top-notch work by Agama here! This set may look like mixed tiles from Jazz1, but if you look closely, you`ll see that agama drew them him/her/itself:-D.
The level included is also very nicely designed. The tileset has all things necesary to make a nifty level, like tubes, vines, hooks(or somthing), and (ofcourse!)eyecandy. It also has nifty litle elevator thingy. Download this now.[This review has been edited by >CelL<]

I won’t say that Agama could post a pic of a rock and get a 10, because Agama has real talent. This tileset continues the long string of great tilesets from this legend. In my little blog (for those of you who don’t know what blogs are-be glad you don’t and your life is worth living) I believe Agama’s tilesets are the best of all time.

It is clear that Agama puts a lot of work into his tilesets, and Sirius is no exception. Sirius is composed of three tilesets, Dimensions1-3, each with a different colour scheme. They come in blue-gold, pink-light blue, and green-blue flavour my personal favourite is the blue-gold one, the others seem to hurt my eyes). There is also an example level, which illustrates the tileset’s many uses to the full.

Graphics: 9.5/10
In Sirius, you walk along a series of pipes (gold, pink or green) with stars as more solid scenery. The pipes can slope up and down, with tiles for each. These pipes have variations, with kinks and scratches in them. There are also T and + junctions for the pipes, but with the stars as denser scenery there are a lot of junctions and it can be difficult to find what you want. There is an 8×8 parallax background, and some layer 6 and 7 tiles if you put your mind to what you want. There are also pipes to walk through, diamond ‘backgrounds’ (light and dark versions), and more. The one problem is that the stars have gaps in and you can see through them, making it hard to conceal secrets in the walls. However, there are a lot of tiles (about 700!) and they all look beautiful, so graphics get a high mark.

Ease of use: 6/10
I actually found this tileset quite hard to use. Maybe it was because of the number of tiles (there are a lot) but most of the time I couldn’t find the tile I wanted. In most cases it was hidden among a group of similar-looking tiles, in other cases it wasn’t in the tileset at all. For example, there’s a pipe sloping at about 30 degrees to the left, and a similar one with stars underneath it. There isn’t any sloping to the right, and if you flip it the stars are also flipped which looks weird if you’re using non-flipped stars around it. Also, the user is forced to use some layer 5 to achieve some tiles, such as pipes ending in stars. Finally, there are tiles for layers 6 and 7, but they’re hard to find and could just as easily be part of the sprite layer. I use the diamond backgrounds for layer 6 and the blue linking boxes for layer 7. Make the backgrounds semitransparent for some cooler eye-candy (and so they aren’t confused with backgrounds from the sprite layers) On a lighter note, the animations were easy to find and follow and looked great.

Example level: 9/10
Sirius comes with an example level and music, as an example to what it can achieve. The music suits the level, with a space-y theme. The level itself is a single player level, with enemies and some secrets. It is well designed – it uses all the tiles in the tileset to the max. There are some instances where the stars have been flipped, but as there’s no other way around this I’ll let it off. The only other niggle I had with the tileset was near the end there was a big flashing blue thing. This really slowed down Jazz 2, and stars could’ve been better for the job. Also it was quite short, but it’s an example level, who cares?

Overall: 8.5/10
This is a beautiful level – the pipes and stuff are very well done, and the stars are a nice idea. This had great potential, but I found it quite hard to use with some tiles hidden or not there. Download recommendation? Yes. It’s a good tileset, but use it if you fancy a challenge![This review has been edited by Shen]

Another master work of Agama.
Now I’ll say something about the titleset wat is realy cool. It uses a palet, with the example level you see all sorts of electronica! The forgroundlayer is also used very well. But now I want to say one thing: The titleset is very difficult to use, in fact all of your titlesets are difficult to use, expample: Swamps of the sleeping jaguar. But when you practice, the level woud be realy nice.

GOOD WORK AGAMA!

I don’t know what people are talking about when they say that this is one of Agama’s lesser tilesets. None of her tilesets are anything short of spectacular.

Art Style:

Ticks all the right boxes for me. The shininess of many of the tiles and the crazy palette modifications have won me over many times. Seems loosely based on Orbitus as well. I am pleased to award this a strong 8.9.

Diversity of Tiles:

Such a wide range of scenery to place in a level, with the elaborate pipes already offering a swarm of possibilities just by themselves. Let your imagination run wild, JCS’ers, this one takes a solid 9.4.

Layer Management:

Hm, this might be the weak point of this monster, but that being said, it still smashes weaker tilesets to dust. Many could get away with just layers 3 and 4 forming the main body of the level. I give this a 7.8.

Environment:

What a crazy environment we have here, lavish with detail and eyecandy, although it’s not a good choice for novices. My advice, get some practice first, then make a beeline for it when you’re good enough. Solid 9.5

Result:
