This episode is brilliant, definitely an example of thinking out of the box if compared to other levels from the same time. What’s kinda creepy is that these were made at the same time I’d made my very first levels. Cool huh? Download now.

This review has been long overdue. But since I’m turning 30 in a couple of hours, my childhood, teenage and college memories were flashing before my eyes.

The joyful memories of playing these amazing, handcrafted and stunning levels for the first time oh so many years ago was amongst them. After installing Jazz2 again (and a few shots) I decided to replay these majestic levels.

The layout is simply amazing and a joy to play. It plays fluid and has an excellent difficulty level; Something I find to be horribly overlooked in most people’s attempts. SPLASH establishes himself as a solid designer with an eye for the creative, slightly offbeat designs. Placements are excellent, sound and thematically fitting. I love the use of the masts in the beach level.

Hero4Hire is one of my favorite levelpacks and one of SPLASH’s best from the day. It deserves this 9 through and through.These highly prolific levels are the epitome of creativity and turning the meta of using these tilesets upside down. The Beatles made Sergeant Pepper. SPLASH made Hero4Hire.

Well, ill summarize my review

Placement of stuff: Enemy placement was generally good. The author managed to find the right difficulty and the placement was generally ok. There were errors, but it was good. Food placement was sparce, took me quite a while to get a sugar rush. Also, the springs were placed well, some good combinations used etc. I found some trigger block errors (when you stomp the crate in crab coral, all blocks except one go away). True, that wasnt a nuisance, but i just felt like mentioning it. Also, the placement made the level fun, i like how the water slowly dropped and rose, when it rose i pretended i was on a ship that was slowly sinking. =P Anyways, fun and creative placement.
Layout/Tile Placement: Not much errors, great placement, the author sure seemed to know what he was doing. Soem tiles didnt go with others, but it was obvoius that the author had a good imagination and stuff.
Music: Fits the level, not my favorite music though. Sometimes got annoying, but nothing really specail.
Eyecandy: Ok, your basic eyecandy here, nothing here that really makes me say OMG COOL, but its better than average. Some levels had way cool eyecandy like the muskeeto mania (i think he spelled musquito on purpose :)) But most levels are average or a bit above average.
Creativity: Some levels are very creative, like the beach one, i liked that mast idea etc. That lava thing in the first level was good as well, lots of creativity.

Good things: TONS of creativity, just the right amount of difficulty as well.

Bad things: A few errors in enemy placement, levels not too long, i got stuck in some places.

Comments: Well, the levels are all great, but the placement of goodies is sparce, and the levels are to short. Some interesting MCE’s used in some levels (in crates) and some cool stuff as well. Enemy placement was good enough for me. So was the eyecandy.

OVERALL: Creativity 9/10, Placement 7/10, Music 8/10, Eyecandy 7/10, other 9/10. Overall about 8.2 or something but ill be nice and give it an 8.5. The levels are very fun and detailed, but lack lenght and some other stuff. A nice pack, download reccomendation. I hope i didnt miss anything out, this review was kinda “rushed” because of lack of patience. =(
