This is the version to be rated. It includes the music and tileset.
Impressive; the level is well designed. Hope it’s not considered “too big” :)
Blade’s simple metal tileset is all it takes.
I should have known there’s a secret warp to the carrot room. You will, too, once you explore the level and find there’s no enterance/passage to the carrot room ;)
That beginning part in the music… I knew I heard that tone before!
Jazz2’s Song10.s3m (“Chrysilis”); ush (remix of Maxi).
Allen remixed the music.
I believe Haze did the remix of the music “nwcryst.it” (“Ush Overdrive”).
So now Haze remixed Allen’s music. _ Interesting.
But the only problem with the music is the epic’s ‘driver’ to playback the music in Jazz2 (“Galaxy Audio System”). That one sample wasn’t suppose to slide down.
Ammo location seems balanced enough, but TNTs causes problems between server and clients.[This review has been edited by Cesar]
Yeah! Finaly some quality. This is the best level Magoo made yet(at least, it is to me). It vey nicely uses Hazes remix of the pld JJ1 crysilis tune, one of mjy favorite songs. The weapen placement is very good. The level design is also very good, no dead ends or such. I`ve got no real complaints about this level. Do yourself a favor, and download this fresh new battle level by Mr Magoo now.

wakes up from his boring schoolday
Hmmm?? Whoa! Some quality! At the first, the music fits PERFECTLY! This si THA BOMB (for a music file) :). Eyecandy is… mwa. Could be better. The level is a bit small, but the ammo is good. I like it when there isn’t placed a load of ammo (as in my levs, ;). I got stuck, but (good work!) there’s placed a warp inside the wall, so if you get stuck you’ll be warped back to the start. At all. 7.0. This level is good. It is that I don’t like Magoos style of leveldesign too much, or it would be an 8.0
I hate you Cell!! ;-P
Oh well, nm. Let’s get on to the review:
Whoa! Two 9?! This lvl is a bit…over rated. (Sry MR MAGOO! :
P) It’s quite small but has got very good weapons placement, good gameplay without any dead ends and other irritating stuff you can find other lvls. (Like mine! ;-P) The lvl hs got VERY good music and it fits in perfectly. I think I’ve heard it somewhere…or something like it…oh yeah! A similar music was in the intro of Rabbit Honour Guard! (Wow! I’m smart! :-P) Unfortunately for MR MAGOO, his lvl hasn’t got very good eyecandy, the background isn’t moving (I like moving stuff), there’s just a couple of bridges, spikes and other boring stuff. Come on! It’s a Blade tileset! Surely one can do better than that?! Work a little bit more on the eyecandy and this lvl is gonna be a hit. :) My second complain is that the lvl tend to be a little bit..ehr…“spacy” and there’s so much room everywhere. Maybe you could fill the gaps with ammo or more eyecandy MR MAGOO?
Well, this is my review ppl and this lvl…ehr…this lvl is a…no I mean even though this only get a 7.5 (which is still pretty good) I still recommend downloading this lvl! That’s it! :-D
awakes and put his PC on
why can’t Jazz2 find the file Metal Detector.j2l at me?
I wanna play the level but this sux:
“Can’t find level or tileset for Metal Detector.j2l”
Anyone know how to solve the problem?
I hope so.
Well, I have a theory, Myst. He didn’t include the tileset. It’s already been said it used a Blade tileset, but the included tileset was certainly NOT made by Blade. In my opinion, he uploaded the wrong tileset. Metal Mania, instead of Beton or whatever the level actually used. Basically, I can not review the level without the tileset, which I do not have.
Edit: Ok, I downloaded Blade’s thing. Now I can review:
Rather nice. The tileset and the design don’t quite go together, but that’s a rare occurance. As someone said, there are warps for places you get stuck. There is also some interesting use of Layer 3. :-) Unfortunately, the tileset is not used to its full advantage. The name gets a plus though. ;)
Overall, a 7.5 seems about right. The author seems to have placed quite a bit of time in this level, after all. (Correct me if I’m wrong)[This review has been edited by Violet CLM]
yeah, I can’t play it either, Magoo uploaded it wrong the 2nd time :p
The solution is to download the tileset from Blades Battle Pack ( I hope its in there) because other people seem to have the tileset ( they must have got it from somewhere)
REVIEW: Good but not perfect
Eyecandy: This tileset could have more eyecandy. The tileset definatly allows that.
Leveldesign: Good. No real complaints, except for that the design is a little “solid” for my likes. I personally am a fan of levels where you can go throught the walls and floor. :P
Anyway, it’s good.
Weapons: Contray to popular belief, with the easily accesible power-ups, I think that the ammo is almost JUST right. Just a smidge more would be fine.
Use of Tileset: As said before, you used the land tiles good, but MUCH more eyecandy is possible with the set.
Fluency: It’s round, alright.
Playing with others: This level can host some heated and close battles. I’ve yet to see it hosted, I tested in splitscreen.
Music: Fits. Perfectly. Couldn’t have picked a better choice.
Overall: Good level MAGOO. Just work on your eyecandy.
OVERALL RATING (not an average) 8.2[This review has been edited by ShanD]
Ah, time for my unscheduled long review
First, you’ve got the tilesets mixed Magoo :P But im not taking marks off for that because it has nothing ot do with the level.Some people say music is part of the rating, some dont, im in beetween. Music is not a big part, but if you dont have any music at all……. The music is excellent here so +3.0 here
The weapon placement is ok, nothing special, hidden warp to seeker powerup, and a few other powerups. Its ok, +1.0
Gameplay, well this level is roomy, and medium sized. It barely has any narrow passages, i dont think it has any actually, and thats good for battle levels. Its easy to move around in, and non-confusing, good job here +2.5
Eyecandy: This one of the few flaws, the eyecandy is poor, and there is barely any. There is some at least, but it could do with some improvement. +.5
The rest, overall, this level has good vine/spring placement etc. but that is part of gameplay, so most of the mark goes there, the rest equals up to +.5 more so……….
It all adds up to a generous 7.5 and an overall donwload reccomendation.
Luv the music
Eat your lima beans, Johnny.
