Description

This is not a new version of my old (cartoony) amazon set. This is a more realistic set, with less wacky stuff. The only similarity is the setting…

hm, let’s see…

The set itself looks great but when you see what you can do with it in the example level it’s downright amazing.
The environment looks great and the animals are really cool. Most of them are animated too!

The user-friendlyness is also very good (a rare thing with tilesets) because everything is placed in a logical place, right where you need it.[This review has been edited by Ninja Dodo]

Argh! Incredible! (new) Amazon forest is a realy INCREDIBLE new tileset simulating a rainforest in Africa, or some other far away place. It has very nifty stuff for eyecandy, like fish jumping up and down in the water, birds flying across the screen, panters, tigers, chameleons, scorpions, and more exotic animels. Its also has some stone-like stuff, so that you can build a ancient Aztec/Maya/Inca(or any other lost civilisation) temple in the midle of a jungle. It has stuff like venus fly traps(meat-eating plants), cactuses(or something), litle monkeys, lizards, Parrots and much, MUCH more. You can kake things like a jungle with trees in the background, big leaves in the water, parrots sitting in trees, snakes, ancient temples, anything! Unlike the origenal Amazon forest, that looked cinda freaky(still pretty nice though), this PERFECTLY simulates a amazon forest. I also recomend to play the example level, because when you only view the tileset in JCS, it may already look great, but when you lay the level, you REALY see the amazing things posible with this top notch set. So, i am going to break my rules once again, and give this a very high 8.7(!) points. If you do not download this right away, you must be some sorta nutcase who escaped from the mental asylum. Oh, and wow, we had 2 great tilesets uploaded in one day.
EDIT: Oh, and i`ve discovered that the example level was made in 1.24(TSF). So if you cant open it, you`re probably trying to play it in 1.23.[This review has been edited by >CelL<][This review has been edited by >CelL<]

Not bad, though i’m not impressed with the tilesets graphics (yes i’m very strict on tileset graphics) i really liked it i thought the “Venus Flytraps” and the “Pitcher Plants” were cool.
I think it looks just like the Amazon. Good job!

Coolness! At last some tileset with really, realistic animals. I was waiting for that :). The graphics are worth an 7.0, they have some 3D-ish look but they are not that special stuff. The inca god-thingy (that gold human sculpture) is very well done, and so the animals are. The example level is boring, but it shows really how you can use this cowy set. I’m really getting the feeling I’m walking in the amazon forest. Also a plus are the plants. They are so cool! They are absolutely not realistic drawn, but they are “feeling” realistic. I don’t really know how to say it. I have some weird feeling I’m gonna make a level with this :).

Well. I threw my firs rating (7.0) in the trash can and luckily I found some better rating (8.0) in my livingroom. Here, it’s yours!

PS: Download this :)

New Amazon Forest is just like Flash said very cool. It’s got many realistic jungle animals like parrots, other birds, piranhas, poisonus frogs, sloths, lizards, snakes and much, much more. Most of them are also nicely animated and can be used for various stuff. (Of course, that doesn’t mean that they can’t be used for eyecandy. ;) There are also many kinds of trees, platforms, bushes, leafes, vines, tree stumps and many more “woody” stuff. ;) Of course, everything in a rainforest isn’t natural. It’s obvious that the Spaztects (no, I mean Aztects ;-) once reigned the land ere and left some building blocks behind them when their civilization was destroyed by the Spanish. (Ok, ok, I promise, no more history stuff in the rest of the review ;-P)

However, there are some bad things in this tileset. Unlike all the other reviewers opinion, I do not think this tileset resembles an Amazon rain forest at all. There aren’t enough flowers, trees, vines, rocks and other jungle stuff and the few flowers and trees this tileset has got is pretty plain and boring. Come on! This isn’t somebody’s backgarden! It’s an giant jungle!!!!! The tileset is so…so garden like and it doesn’t fit an jungle at all. But, if you add loads of trees and vines and green stuff in the foreground layer of a lvl and make everything VERY confusing, then maybe the lvl will look a little bit like a real jungle. ;-) So, instead of having the name New Amazon Forest, I recommend to rename it to:
Very Badly Designed Back Garden with Loads of wild Animals in It.
(Just kidding! ;-D)

Because the tileset doesn’t look like a jungle at all, I’ve decided to lower the average point and give it an 7.2.
And an download recommendation of course.
Oh! And btw, the other reviewers of this tileset are HEAVILY overrating this tileset. :-P

Cheers,

White Rabbit.[This review has been edited by White Rabbit]

man this tileset is overrated! The trees and actually all the stuff except the animals are drawn not good. So the only thing I like are the animals.
Compare it to other tilesets like Agamas or Disguises and you see this aint that good.[This review has been edited by Piccolo aka SoulFirE]
