Custom JJ1 levels rarely come along, usually made only by a few select fans of the game. This episode is groundbreaking as it contains the very first JJ1 levels to be released using custom tilesets. They all happen to be conversions of JJ2 tilesets, but they do not clash graphically, and they give JJ1 a slightly more “modern” feel. Along with Newspaz’ JJ1 Level Editor, this should promote the creation of more custom JJ1 levels. It offers a new challenge in comparsion to JCSing for JJ2, and is definitely reccomended for those level designers eager to try something different. The levels themselves are of high quality, and carry on the tradition of being more difficult than most JJ2 levels due to the technical limitations during play. Whether you’re into level design or just want something to occupy your time on a boring day, this is highly recommended!
For the most part you’re just treated to pretty graphics, new and very memorable level designs, and a sense of inspiration as you realize how many things JJ1 can do if you give it a chance.

While having a definite JJ2 atmosphere, the tiles used and their manipulation definitely gives a unique feel to the levels that is not quite here nor there.
