Ancient Museum’s main theme is about an ancient relic museum that also contains (mostly) ancient relics. Also, the surrounding environment “supports” the museum like a pillar.

TNT can blow the c up into a potentially easier-to-control spot. As far as I know, if you want the c to stay up there, you can only blow it up to the left, but that’s not a huge bias. If you don’t want the c up there, then shoot it down.

I added an “Apocalypse” version of this level for fun. Only the music, a text string, the tile-set, and, of course, the level names are different from the other.

This isn’t meant to take great advantage of jj2+‘s features. So, “Ancient” Museum indeed.

The “weird lifeforms” are a type of fictional and aggressive mangrove trees.

I hope you have fun! (When will I ever stop making levels for this game?)

EDIT: So much for consistency, but a couple of warps at the left sides of the levels had the wrong ids, which is an important problem. This is more of a fix than an “update” really.

Another map by FireSworD huh? Quite a good map tho! One of the better maps, if not the best map, FireSworD made. Tileset usage here is really good. Since I haven’t seen many Haunted House maps around here is the eyecandy also really good. You can easily learn the map and the layout is balanced aswell. Download recommendation!

RecommendedPurpleJazz rated 8.7

This level manages to execute the theme well with careful attention to the architectural details of the level. It has the kind of functional and creative layout that CTF levels by FS are generally known for. The base areas are perhaps a little too open for my liking, but others may like them for how being RTS is challenging here.

RecommendedSuperjazz rated 8.5

Judging this level from a competitive point of view, it is a solid level that offers a fresh new layout.

Update: The latest version fixes the major gameplay flaws so I’m updating my rating appropriately as well. Good job FireSworD!
