Welcome to Aztec 2, my first release for Jazz Jackrabbit 2 in ten years.
This thing you’re viewing here is my newest tileset made quite intensively in the last five months. My return to JJ2 tileset making has been long overdue, and I am ecstatic that I am able to be here, after all these years, to make this upload.
Aztec 2 is a 2630 tile tileset and it aims to be a successor to my first proper tileset, Aztec, originally released in the spring of 2000. Aztec 2 expands the scope of Aztec in all areas. Original 32×32 stone blocks make a return, but now you will also be able to create outdoors environments with rocky ground tiles and build trees with a size of your choosing and mix and match almost everything you can think of. Water is prominently depicted in the tileset with water pools, waterfalls and water related other animations.
Aztec 2 tileset is accompanied with a single player example level. The other j2l file is a variant of the same level with a different background setting.
In case you are interested to read more about Aztec 2 please view the zip readme file.
Thank you for playing.
Mostly technically proficient, quite versatile, and has a relatively simple, developed art style. While the leaves and water/waterfalls may try to emulate a certain style, I don’t like them. This is a very solid set that falls a bit from perfection in my opinion.
Simply beautiful. Do I even need to write a full-fledged review for this? Just look at it, it’s gorgeous. The best fan-made JJ2 tileset by a mile. Great job!
VERY detailed set with LOTS to choose from. It captures the theme very well! Magnificent!
Absolutely stunning, those are the first words that come in mind playing with this level. The eyecandy blast in your face. Blade proves once again that he knows what he is doing. Even after 10 years of absence he still has the tileset tricks. I’m so happy that this came out. We gonna see a new breed of amazing levels with stunning visuals.
What I also like is that Blade provides a small tutorial on how to use this set and how to work with it. This is not only great for the skilled and experienced level designer but also for the newbie this is good.
And ofcourse as an extra bonus from a good tile builder, he gives us a 2nd variation that I even like more :-)
The level it self is good and hard. You might give up on it a bit to quick, even on easy mode. I didn’t like the claustrophobic mazes, it felt a bit hard to navigate as Jazz Jackrabbit but eventually I got through it.
Eat your lima beans, Johnny.
