Jazz is stranded on what seems to be a deserted island. Little does he know that this is the island that goes by the name of “Site-B”.
In the 12-level episode that follows Jazz has to fight and think his way off an island where danger lurks everywhere…
(new tileset – 12 levels – 5 cinematics – 7 level-soundtracks)
very cool levels
[Review changed to quick review. – cooba]
These levels are good! and valdr… A 3? let’s see if you could do them better!
MY rating i 9 with DR!
what tool you use to make 3d cutescenes !
The graphical quality of the tilesets is a bit iffy and the level designs are rather simple, but the overall atmosphere achieved in these levels is still amazing. Like Another Story, it’s more a cinematic experience rather than an active one.Very few levels since gave me the same feeling of immersion in the environment as these did here.
I’m not much for full reviews, so just shortly – I really enjoyed playing this, even though it’s so much different from other levels. It’s a testimony to what can be done with jcs. If you’ll play this with open mind and appreciate what it’s trying to accomplish (more realistic story and level design), you’ll enjoy this a lot!
Well, like everyone else said, the cinematics and tileset are drop dead gorgeous! But, ultimately, it’s about the levels. There are loads on innovative ways in which the tileset is used in the levels, but I don’t want to spoil this for you, so I’ll keep quiet ;)
Anyways, that’s the good points, there are soem bad ones as well. Firstly I think the levels are a bit too short. Just as I start to enjoy the level I’m passing the finish. I also feel it was a bit too easy, too few enemies placed to sparsely. It’s more like a story than a challenging pack.
Yes, the first thing that comes into mind is Another Story, and loads fo people loved it, but I didn’t like it that much, but still, it was good and so is this, so it’s definitley worth the download ;)
My apologies to a bit mentioned above, it was fairly easy, but you can change the difficulty level. The difference isn’t too much, but it is harder and more features to the level, so I’ll boost my rating a bit! ;)[This review has been edited by Disguise]
Yes, ladies and gentlemen, it’s the 53rd review for this darned overrated pack. Oh well.
What we have here is a 17.5 MB package including 12 levels, ambient soundtracks, 5 3D cutscenes and lots of other stuff which I’m too lazy to mention.
A huge amount of effort has gone into creating this episode, however, that doesn’t make it perfect for me.
The story tells the quest of young Jazz, stranded on an island inhabited by dinosaurs – yes, the story’s stolen from Jurassic Park. However, that didn’t matter for me at all.
The levels are all pretty well designed, some with very original stuff, however way too short and easy. I played through this in around 20 minutes I believe (can’t remember correctly), which is way too short considering what could have been possible. The levels are mostly outdoor areas with lots of evil enemies and a few puzzles scattered about. Those were pretty easy though, could’ve had some more depth. The dino hunt level was cool, but too short and easy again.
Like I said, the difficulty of this episode isn’t very high. The enemies are mostly not strategically placed, the puzzles aren’t that hard to solve, what else? Boosted difficulty had made this a lot more fun.
A good aspect of the pack is that it’s pretty creative. There are some ideas and tricks I’ve never seen before, and the dino hunt was spectacular. The puzzles could’ve been better, but overall very nice.
Eyecandy is so-so. In the outside areas it looks nice, while in the caves it’s dull. The tileset is not the best, which could be the main reason. It’s not bad, but it needs a lot more detail, especially in walls. Level 8 had exactly 10 different tiles I believe. Some tricks are neat though.
The story is told in a nice way through short dialoges of the character, and it’s easily understandable even for someone who didn’t watch the film. Some things don’t really fit in like the ammo, but that doesn’t matter.
Overall this pack is nice, especially for those caring about lots of extra features like cutscenes and makros (that are those little recorded games showing up if you do nothing in the main menu), but the levels were a little dissapointment due to easieness and shortness.
Those are my two cents, agree with it or not.
It’s a decent pack though, and worth the download.
I’ve played with my friend in Coop mode yesterday. It was fun, so I’ll increase the rating a bit. :)
(7.7 -> 8.0)
Hmmm, can’t seem to log into my old account. Oh well.
So, it’s been about five years now… time, I think, for a retrospective:
Looking at it now I have to say I find the start of the episode a bit underwhelming, the design is rather dull, with little platforming challenge to speak of and the eye candy doesn’t work too well… however, once you reach the cliff face in the second level and start your climb up the mountain and into the caves it starts to get more interesting. The bits with the falling rocks still work quite well I think, especially in the caves and the fact that you can take multiple paths in several places adds a lot to the fun.
“Sorna Falls” also holds up pretty well, though not a terribly complex design it’s a nice natural landscape and a bit more challenging than the earlier levels. After that it’s back to the linear left to right gameplay with “Into the long grass”… which to be honest is a bit boring. It works adequately as a story level but is not much of a challenge.
“A call for help” works better as it’s more contained, focusing more on story and exploration and less on just traversing the area. There’s a few puzzles blocking your way that, while simple, make for an amusing aside from the platforming action. “Down the tubes” is super-linear, but somehow it works and the flood at the end is cool.
Then comes arguably the most spectacular level of the pack, “Goose Chase”. Though the layout of the level itself is essentially very basic, the fact that you’re being chased through it by a giant T-rex makes it all the more interesting. :)
This is followed by an unfortunate return to the familiar left to right traversing with “Climate change”. While the subterranean path of the level is slightly more interesting, as a whole it doesn’t really hold up and could have done with some more platform challenges.
Which brings us to the finale that spans “the storm” and “coastal cliffs”, better than some of the previous levels but not among the best, though I like the way the story plays out with the chopper diverting to a different meeting point and Jazz’ sarcastic comments breaking up the action…
GRAPHICS & SOUND
The limited colour palette definitely hurt the look of the tileset. All I can say is, never do 3D tilesets unless you have more than 256 colours at your disposal. It just doesn’t really work. It’s too detailed to have flat surfaces of colour and dithering is scarcely an improvement in most cases. I think the dinos still look pretty cool and the rock surface and a few other things work well, but the foliage and trees could have looked A LOT better, as could many other things.
I would like to note though that Jaws and I created ALL the graphics ourselves. We did not “steal them off some website” as has been suggested by a certain reviewer who should perhaps think more happy thoughts.
But I digress…
The cutscenes, today, are interesting to look at. With all I’ve learnt in the past five years I could easily pick them apart and go into all the things I could have done so much better but as a support for the story they did the trick at the time and that’s what matters.
I definitely don’t regret the decision to not have any music. It was more than made up for by the various atmospheric sound effects that supported the levels, from the crashing of waterfalls to the roaring of T-rexes.
While I’m glad so many enjoyed the episode enough to give it a 9 or 10 I think I’m gonna have to agree with the more moderate reviewers and give it a 7.7. It has its moments.
(Since we’re not supposed to rate our own packs I’ll refrain from actually submitting that rating, though)
The tile set was alright, but too hard to figuer out if something was thee or just a background. The levels were way too easy, I could just run through them getting hurt and make it to the end. The short films I though were ok, but too short. And you could have done much more with the plot you were using. The reason why I’m not give a 3 is because of the tile setting, the short videos, and one of your levels was one of the best levels, and that would be when you run away from the dinasure. That was the coolest thing, and would be better if made longer, or more diffacult aka more obsicules.
Well, i am too lazy to tell everything
i wanted to tell but uhm nm…
Cool vidz / good use of the Set / the originalst and fitting music ever/ good storyline / the FRRA-Part (From-Rex-Run-Away) / everything for free =)
Too short lvls/ the cutscene ( but that is not too bad cuz i know that it won’t work with anorther way)/
Mwha hm well ,however, Yea i think a 9.5 is good :)EAT THIS !!!
This pack contains 12 single-player levels, a tileset, a few music files and 5 cinematics, but it’s not about the cinematics, but it’s about the levels.
You have been stranded on an island called Site-B. The eyecandy in this level is ok, but the background looks a bit empty. The level disign is in one word: boring. You just need to follow a straigt path from left to right. In games like super mario this would’ve been possible, becouse mario can’t jump very far, but in jazz2 you can just run and jump through this level in 30 seconds, without missing lots of pickups.
This level is not much different than the previous one. The background contains a few trees and rocks and a big hill, making the background again a bit empty. The level design is a bit better than the previous level, more jumping is needed and it’s a bit harder. Near the and of the level you need to climb trees to find the cave leading to the next level.
Under the Mountain
This level was also pretty easy. It’s inside a cave, and you need to avoid a few rocks and jump over a few collapsing platforms. That’s it. Eyecandy was very poor, only the Ground, and a plain rocky background.
On top of the World
This level is on the top of a big mountain or something like that. Eyecandy is still poor but the level design is a bit better. Falling down often results in a deep spiky pit (you can’t get out) and is sometimes unavoidable, being very annoying.
This level is nothing but rocks and waterfalls. Falling down a waterfall results in going back to the beginning. It’s a bit a maze like level, which is pretty fun, but the falling down spoils the fun a bit.
Into the Long Grass
This level is into the long grass (what a surprise). Eyecandy has improved a lot, but the level is very easy because you can just run and jump through the whole level.
A Call for Help
This level is mainly inside a house thingy. Eyecandy is ok and this level is a lot harder than the other levels. Sadly, after you exit the house the level is nearly finished. Another 30 second level…
Down the Tubes
Youre inside a sort of sewer. Eyecandy is a bit poor again, and the level is pretty short and easy. There’s a cool trap in the level with raising water and lots of fish.
In this level you’ll be chased by a T-rex I think. But it’s far to easy and if you shoot and run to the right for 30 seconds, the level is finished. Eyecandy is okay, but the level is just far to easy and short.
Just another boring level with a few dinosaurs. Blah
Nothing much to say about this level. This time it rains at the background. It’s again easy to just helicopter-ear over the whole level in 30 seconds.
This level is very small and easy again, especially for Jazz. You can just fly over the whole level again.
This pack is mostly aimed at realism and at the story, spoiling the fun a bit. The levels are very short and easy, and its often possible to just skip the whole level by just jumping over it. Eyecandy is sometimes a bit poor, but this is often just because of the tileset. Item placement is ok, and so is enemy placement. The cinematics are nice but I dont think it’s worth to download because of the filesize, and because the levels bring not much special.
Event Placement 4/6
Download not recommended
A great episode. The best parts were the escape from the t-rex and the cliff level. The tileset is quite strange: it doesn’t seem like another Jazz2 cartoon-style tileset, it looks like computer graphics. You must see it to understand it. A must download!!!
This was well made. It’s real. It actually feels like an island.
The tileset is well used.
The cinematics are certainly…. new. You just don’t see cinematics included with episodes. However, they are a bit short. Oh well.
The music and ambient sounds are used perfectly. No argument here.
I can’t play it on Hard Mode. My home cooked levels list is already full, so I have to drag the first level onto the JJ2 icon. Normal mode is my only option.[This review has been edited by Violet CLM]
(Unapproved rating removal edit. ~Violet)[This review has been edited by Violet CLM]
Review coming later…does the music not play for anyone else? However, you get lots of points from me for hosting it on a FAST server. The actual episode (not the J2o thingy) took me only 5 seconds!
This *censored*ed crappy ISDN! :) This pack is too big for it. But you can expect my rating when this stupid, slow ISDN finally gets the pack.
Its too easy……but i like the dinoattack scene and lvl the coolest…..the animated tileset of the legs sems cool,and he made it look like the dinosaur was auctually moving in front….when he jux used a accr belt left…………nice music and kool eye candy…..
this is one of the best episodes i have ever seen and the t rex is lovely

the link to download this is not working :(
This was a pretty good pack.
The Lost World Episode by Ninja Dodo was a little hard to get used to at first. I mean, admit it. It had decent, but not overly great eyecandy. Most of the music was animal noises and crashing waves (and stuff like that). The story wasn’t very original (unless you’ve either never seen Jurassic Park, or else never heard of it). The tilesets weren’t the greatest in the world. The levels were pretty simple to beat.
Stopping between levels to watch cutscenes was also rather irritating (Although I applaud the creative and successful use of the technology).
However, for some strange reason, I found myself drawn to playing LWE. Why? I couldn’t tell you. It was just fun.
Nothing was overly spectacular…but then again, it worked well enough to make the pack enjoyable. It wasn’t the most original singleplayer episode out there, but it was decently well executed.
Maybe it was the mood. Despite the aforementioned so-so tilesets and average music, it made up for a lot of shortcomings, since it was actually not bad.
What should this episode be rated? Probably in the 7.5-8 range. I refuse to overrate it just because it has actual video cutscenes (which I actually think detracts from the story, since it slows it down) which tell a story simple enough to be explained in text strings, or at the very least with a “text and/or picture tileset”.
Nonetheless, it’s a solid pack, and it’s worth a download.
wow, you must have a fast connection, spazzboy. It took me like 40 minutes to upload it.
As for music not working, I don’t know, maybe you should check in the jazz options whether music is on at all and at a high enough volume.
btw, if you want a real challenge, go for hard mode. It’s there for a reason. Or the hardest; playing with Spaz in hard.
[edit #1: Bunny Elmer, since you are wondering… No, I did not steal the 3D model of Jazz. I created it from scratch myself.]
[edit #2: Seems I’m able to log in again… The links in the old download were broken so I replaced it with working links and also added some nice screenshots.]
This is a very great level pack! It takes up a bundle, but it’s still fun, and I think it’s worth it! It includes a great tileset (with awesome dinosaur tiles! =]).
Download? If you have lots of space on your computer… YES!
If you don’t… YES!
Ok, i’m not fond of it, but It is very good like level pack!
-medium for the story
-Nice lvl creation (Especially the dinosaur race lvl)
-the movie clips ……….they weren’t very interesting(sorry)
i would have given 9.5 but the last point is the reason i took of one point
man this is cool :D
Great level! Everything seems to “blend in” with the surroundings. It was/is soo good i give it a 9.5 for a great level and great use of the tileset!
W0000tt! This rule.
Prehistoric rules. You have realy done your best, well done!
Oh, I see that I haven’t rated this yet so I rate now.
Stuff, enemy placement 10/10
2 extra points, because cutscenes and those dinosaur groars at for the background, so it makes 9.7 This could have more levels, or bigger, otherwise this is perfect!
The storyline was great, even if stolen. ;-) The gameplay was great. The animations were great. The cutscenes were ingeneous! I especially loved that level where you run from the T-Rex.
A very good idea and a good level design. The backgrounds could be better.
I also give an a 10 becasue this rocks!!!!!!!!!!!
musics are awesome and so are the levels,tileet and idea.
Its really good pack!
I played it some times, and i was really enjoyed this!
Background is good, some mystic elements…
Gameplay, good and adventure…
Sound of nature is really awesome…
I like what this pack without musics, because i like sounds of nature better than music…
Good adventure on lost world of Dinosaurs with mystical elements…
Download Recommendation: Yay…
Sorry please for bad english… XD
Making to few enemies hurts this pack, anything else looks good.
I best like the lv. where the dinosaur hunts you.[This review has been edited by Freezolf]
THIS WAS LARGE FILE!!, but it was worth it. it has cool sounds ROARS!! and GROARS!! and thoes cutscenes! (if they have sounds, i´ll give 9,7!) levels are well made and beautyful as the story!
YES! At least a good, hard episode for us newbies to train on. I especially liked the cave level and that spike trap. How did you make that goose run? I think you used a belt left. VERY GOOD!
It’s here. After a long time of waiting, Ninja Dodo finaly finished teh Lost World episode, a very l33t single player pack, using the famous Lost world tileset. The pack is very cool. It makes terific use of the tileset. It has all the features from Site-B, like the waterfalls, the abandoned ofice building, the caves, the coast. It has some very cool, well drawn dinosaurs, like the T-Rex, and a few others of wich i dont exactly know what they are called:-O. The pac itself is also very l33t. One thing bothered me though: its was a litle too easy, even in hard mode. Some of the levels, like the one taking place in and around the abandoned ofice building, where a bit short. But apart from that, very origenal. I wanna bet Ninja Dodo used every tile in the entire tileset. The levels had very origenal ideas. Like for example “Sorna Falls”, where you have to make your way through a number of cliffs, seperated by giant waterfalls. Almost every level combines both in water and on dry land play. The level “Down the tubes” was pretty origenal, based in the sewers beneath the abandoned foice. The pack follows a pretty sturing story, about a rabbit who gets ship wrecked on his way to Costa Rica, and is stranded on a eiland full of dinosaurs, not to mention all sorta of other pesky animals, like ravens, turtles, fish, lizards, stuff like that. The most origenal level by far was the 9th level, where you need to run from “mr. I am the greatest”, the T.Rex. To ad to this, Ninja Dodo also added a number of totaly awesome looking 3D cutscenes, to be viewed in Realplayer, wich conect some of the levels with each other. To sum it up, this is a must download for all of you. Very high 9.0(!) points.[This review has been edited by >CelL<]

I love the video’s and the levels, cool. I wish I could make videos…….
Yes, yes, we all know how hard it is to make video’s, and ninja dodo had the skill to make them. Although i feel that the video’s could of been more longer and descriptive, they are a great effort.

It is simply the best. Tomb Rabbit has nothing on you.
Rating Lost World Episode:
RATING ENEMIES: Nice choice… lizards, turtles… good. But no bosses! That’s a pity…
RATING MUSIC: No music, but tropical sounds. Verrrrrrrrrry original!
RATING TILESET: Nice tileset with trees, bushes, sewers and dino’s… very, very great!
RATING FUN: It’s a good episode with a lot of levels, but they are a little short…
RATING GAMEPLAY: This rating is always the average of the last four ratings.
RATING UTERUS: There were no bosses, so automatically no Uterus. Great job!
FINAL RATING: 9.1
very great lvl!

Well, I like the interesting approach with the music, with each level using just ambient sounds and a song constructed entirely from ambient sounds, although the .avi files are using an obscure codec that the newer of my computers does not and cannot have.
As for the tileset… there is no quality to speak of. The tileset looks like it was drawn by a total novice.
The installer package (the .exe file) method of packaging JJ2 levels is impractical and unusable in most situations, in addition to the uninstaller file using the common “uninstal” mis-spelling (I’ve seen this too many times before, C&C modders have done this too).
Overall, it nets a maximum of 5.0, only because the horrid tileset handicaps the rating.
[Offensive finger pointing removal. ~cooba]
(Rating (5.0) removal. At no point in the review do you mention the levels. ~Violet)
Yes, it WAS worth it! The Dinocraze is back again, with this extremely awesome kewl Single Player pack!
As Jazz, you have stranded on “Site-B”, which is, as many people will know (or feel-this pack isn’t called “The Lost World” for nuffin, filmfreaks :P), infested with dinosaurs. Some elements from the Jurassic Park movies were put into your fav Jazz game, such as the long grass run, and a meeting with the big guy…well…can’t really tell, that’s a huge spoiler- but I can tell you it is AWESOME! The levels weren’t extremely easy, but they weren’t extremely hard either. Sometimes they were a bit short, but heck with that! The cutscenes are marvellous, I really like what you did with them :)
Dunno what to add more…Move over Tomb Rabbit, push The Other Dimension back into it’s case, ‘cos here is the Lost World!
Nice eye candy.
Episode file for TSF.
And so much more. This is a download everyone should get asap.
Don’t have the time for a huge review but here’s in short where that 9.2 all comes from…– Gameplay – 90 Pretty easy at most places, a little short too all together(basically ‘cause ye just HAVE to keep playing until ye finished the whole game ;) – Originality – 84 General idea is nice, some specific levels are very nice (on top would be level 9 ;) – Level Design – 82 A pretty simple but well worked out level design for most levels – very well use of the tileset, and no annoying things like overload of baddies (or getting stuck in walls ;) – Graphics – 85 Very nice tileset :) – Music – 100 Adds a lot to the athmosphere – splendid! – Sound FX – 100 I’m not sure how many sounds there were used, but the ones i noticed worked well enough for another 100 ;) – Bonus – 100 Those cutscenes are amazing! Pity theres no sound, but they’re definitely a great extra :) – Overall – 91.5 Guess what – this is the average of all the points above ;)
Some thingies i noticed: No music in, i think, level 3 (the first one down in those caves) Caint use the listing thingy (when opening a new game in TSF) – it says i have to “finish the previous episode first” (which is homecooked levels)…[This review has been edited by Kejero]
Surtently best jj2 Single Player pack ever released!!!YOU made cool,giving specify climate,music,i realy love it.Tilests,well chosen.Levels,too short :( but realy cool,you just want more,and more and moooooooore (like a drug :p ) [i realy like that one when dino chase you ] Enemis,well placed(only in sewer level there is too much of these fish stuff and if you dont gona brake through them,without killing,i dont think it is possible to pass them.Thats all,hope there is gona be more packs like these cuz i had wonderfull time playing it!it was better than original jj2 levels!much better!(ow,dont forget about cool cut sceens)
Since my review would just be recaping what everyone’s said, I’ll say this instead: Oh. My. God.
Woweeeee! Goose Chase forever!! (-D
This is best jj2 pack ever!!! The levels are completely original!!! The eyecandy rox! The cinematics add-on gives this thing at least an extra 5 points! I LOVED (!!!!!!!!!!!) the trex chase level. It was ingenius!!! This is the best pack ever!!! A must download! Anyone who rates this below 10 cannot truely apreatiate the contribiution that this pack adds to the jj2 community!! A perfect score from me!! 10!!!
(NOTE: The levels are a wee bit too short, but there is no id ever take down points for that!)
This is a really cool episode.
The dinosaurs are really cool and the story is good too. Nice eyecandy. But the levels are a little bit difficult, but that’s okay. There are enough enemies and action and stuff.
Wow, this is super, here is my review:
1: the tileset is cool becouse
it is 3d liked.
2: it is not too easy,
but the 12 levels are not very long.
3: the levels have nice eyecandy
and good light and dark effects.
4: The rating: a 9.5 extremelyDownload it: yes[This review has been edited by Jazzyman]
1337!! Only one flaw: TOO SHORT.
Nicely done. The dinosuars could be better though. -2.0/2.0
A much different approach, no music, but sound! That’s SOMETHING! -2.0/2.0
It’s actually pretty tough, because you didn’t make one for TSF until LATER. I play as Lor, ya know! -4.0/5.0
Cutscenes-Nice extra, but practice with those 3D models. :p
THERE, lenghtened review. HAPPY?
(Much like this review. Rating removal. -Trafton)[This review has been edited by Trafton AT][This review has been edited by Cazz NP]
Bad, really bad. I mean…DISPLEASUREABLE for the J2O Admin whom I love soooo much…
The tileset was crummy, not really worth looking at! The levels were repedetive and dull. Cinematics? Who cares?! It’s the GAME!
Well, it was cute that he used the Easy Installation Maker from Clickteam that I once tried to use to make a patch for JJ2…anyway, no points there. There isn’t any music, just some loud, yelping noises that were the end result of sacrificing the music of this hapless game he so deliberately brought onto all of our souls.
I don’t make tilesets myself, but I see a LOT better in almost all of them. I am outra- erm…a little UPSET over this level, and what REAllly, reallly, steams m- makes me UNCOMFORTABLE is that it is rated so freak’n high!
I won’t put one myself, since it will be removed from (yours truely) the J2O Admin. So, unless they tell me otherwise, this game is N/A.
And a short note to the ASSOCIATES AND/OR EMPLOYEES OF J2O: Keep it up!

This lvlpack seems to have no music but that doesnt really matter, there placement for pickups made me sick, i hardly found anything! The tileset is really nice and the echo sounds are okay… i guess but the way the lvls are created is fantastic, it is actually possible to do this with dying usually i never die on single player. the lvls r very original, and the dinosaur one was really cool, i wonder how u did that, the eyecandy was reasonably perfect and the episode is actually a challenge for me. i have to say that the lvls are excellent and the storyline was interestin. this is a great episode, minus the way there is no music, it is fantastic! DOWNLOAD THIS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
It is good, I will give a better longer review later.
item placement: because there are no save points i wnted to make that a 95 procent bud it is 100 procent cause the levels are short

two words. DOWNLOAD RECAMENTION!
It is my first download here and first review. I’ve read previous posts started this “episode” and now I’m surprised by what I’ve seen. Do you guys review the same levelpack that is available in downloads above? :O Not that it’s so bad it’s rather horrible and should’ve never seen the light of day :P
First of all – what are all those cinematics for? They aren’t played under JJ2 and the so-called intro should be in readme.txt since its only a single sentence or so… why? Because the whole download is too huge for some players – w/o those worthless cinematics it would only be 3+ MB big :P
OK, let’s get to the rest – LEVELS :(
Tileset is … UGLY – bitmaps taken from some site dithered down (I think) to 8-bit palette doesn’t make tileset yet you know … Jazz and other sprites DOESN’T FIT in amatuer, crappy graphics like this. Leveldesign – I was hoping that it’s gonna improve from level to level but it was rather Mario-like-go-right stuff with some exceptions, and look at the background – repetitive chaotic patterns of this “tileset” remind some 8-bit retro game rather than JJ2 game with ultracool graphics. Look at the grond/dirt in original tilesets – it’s not a black hole like here, right? Overall design was rather boring and I haven’t played through all levels – I couldn’t stand it long. Once again look at the original levels – do you see how the whole levelspace is used? Do you see placement of baddies and how they act? Do you see graphics?????
The only good point of this “episode” are the ambient sounds – but they’re used instead of original music which is crime – it additionally makes the whole stuff less dynamic. Just one point up for that and one another for the idea but none for leveldesign and graphics.
I hope that next time you’ll use some of standard tileset and practice more with leveldesign – release more single levels before you make a whole episode and please DO NOT KILL JAZZ JACKRABBIT anymore.
Eat your lima beans, Johnny.
