Treasure Hunt can be exceptionally hard to make a level in. Usually, one should try something like Battle first.

This Treasure Hunt level was not the best. It was relatively small, and, because of the gem count of 50, would only work with 2 players and a required gem count of.. 35.

A layer 3 problem was encountered at 39,42. Fix that by making the other pieces of sucker tube layer 3 too?

I also didn’t like the piece of pipe at 32,40. It didn’t work well as eyecandy.

The backround could have been made a lot better, though Tube Electric doesn’t have much for backround.. I thought things should have been spread around more, instead of having most of the similiar backround tiles clumped together.

There should have been some secrets. Also, all good Treasure Hunt levels need some ammo, as you do need to shoot your opponent.

This level had pure red gems, no super gems, gem rings, green gems, blue gems, even purple gems. That was not very good, pure red gems get boring after a while.

The sucker tube warps were much to my distaste. When I first saw one, I walked over to it. When nothing happened, I tried jumping. Only then did I get warped. I’d say you should put a warp on the tile too, or if you don’t want to, at least make it clearer that there’s a warp there with a different tile.

The Carrotus music actually didn’t do too badly, though the normal Tube Electric music might have been a little better. No points taken off for that.

The level felt too unfinished, as it was too open. A roof might have eased the feeling up.

With the exit, I’d suggest actual sucker tubes – one going in, one going out. It could be sort of annoying to get out of right now.

Eyecandy existed, so I can’t complain.

Down to the scoring..

PICKUP PLACEMENT:

Only pickups were gems, and they didn’t have very interesting placement.

1.5/5

GAMEPLAY:

As I said, too much of that unfinished feeling. Not very much to hold my attention.

2/5

TILESET USE:

Tube Electric can be a hard tileset to use if you’re beginning to make levels, and this didn’t use the tileset very well. You didn’t use a lot of tiles, though the small size of the level forgives that slightly.

2.5/5

EYECANDY:

Not much of this, really. A lot more could be added on. The tileset has, however much you have to reuse them, several eyecandy tiles.

1.5/5

WOULD I HOST THIS?

No. No download recommendation.

Next time..

-Add more secrets
-Add different sorts of gems
-Make a larger level
-Put more gems in
-Add more eyecandy

Ummmm..this is the strangest level ever. I belive that it could be worked on.
Eyecandy: This part of the review taken out. I don’t blame any Cheq levels for not having eyecandy.
Gameplay: Hard to manuver, annoying. Bad warp placement. 3.2
Base placement: Not in good taste. Obviously, the creator doesn’t know how to place them very well. 2.5
Weapon placement: Good. What else to say? 6.0
Design: No comment.
Some random other stuff: No comment.
Overall: 4.2

Just for Gzou…does it appear in your JJ2 folder? After all, there’s a limit for how many levels you can have in Home Cooked.

I’m not very good at it, though I’ve always liked SI. So, here it goes:

Gameplay: Only one powerup. There should be diffrent types. Also, there are too many UFOs in some levels. -1.0

Pictures: UFOs looking very unreal, copied, and downright bad. A picture of Jazz shooting up was stolen from JJ2, and the powerups and shot look very bad. -1.0

Other: 5.5

Bonuses:
High Score list: 1.5
Sound: 2.5

Overall: 7.5 A fair game, download it if you like.

-Level too small, increase the size of the level, and remember not to make it Linear (going in one direction).
-Too much of the same weapons, lower the amount of weapons you have.
-Spread out the weapons throughout the level.
-Eye Candy needs improvement, look at the levels: Castle1, & Battle1. Use your Eye Candy like how they did or be creative!
-Event shortage, add more events! You can use stuff like food, powerups, but don’t use shields!
-No start position, that’s a problem. Place the event ‘MP Start position’, or you’ll get an Access Violation in Multiplayer.
-Filename way too long, just rewrite the filename (not the level name).
-Don’t put an official level as your next level, instead link the level up to itself. Type in (your rewritten filename) in the Next Level box of Level Properties.

Ooh! No layer three so it looks cool out the windows! 1.5 for that!
1st 0.5.
All of the stuff I kept that JJ Tublear said: 0.0

Wow, This tileset is beautiful. It almost makes me want to be there. I think the way you changed the palette is good as well, exept I don’t really like Jazz and Spaz in brown, but I guess they have mud on them :). I also love the bushes with the paws leaping out, and the eyes that apear and look around, and the little head that pokes out of the bushes. It may be decoration, but it just adds to the originality of the tileset. The tiles are beautifully drawn, the pallet is made like epics, but there is only one thing stopping me giving this tileset a 10. Play it in low detail. I think a true tileset, you shouldn’t have to use layer 5 if it can be avoided.

You have no shadow tiles linking to the light tiles so you can’t have tile connections without the use of layer 5. Sorry, but thats the only weakness I can see. The reast of the tileset is FANTASTIC


LOOOOOOOVE the palette! Anyway, to the review.

Jaguars: +5.0
Grass: +3.0

ET reviewed it……. and liked it! +23.0.:P
Hey, I can’t do over 10.0! I want to review it 3 more times to do that!
