The music is to slow and quite boring with that sort of instruments in it, sorry.
Good remixes, I may use them for my levels. The only con is Boss.sm3, it has some bugs in it, maybe you should look at it. (Or my Sound Blasters are broken ;))
No, you have to have a special music system of JCS, don’t remember it’s name, tough.
Good gameplay, I liked the jump parts etc. Good weapon placement (Just when you need a weapon, it’s there ;))
To bad it isn’t real fun as said before, a 7 from me.
Did you make it with the TSF JCS? If so, than it’s 1.24.
No eyecandy whatso ever. Horrible enemy placement, horrible item placement. I don’t see why the autor has named the level “tutorial level for beginers”. Sorry, a 1 from me.

labratkid, if you are stuck, you can move to the left or to the right and you’ll get out of it, I changed that part, I don’t know if you saw that.
The first thing I noticed that the level name was “Wortel1”. Are their more levels coming or only 1? The gameplay is quite good. The name has been used will with “Small easter level” couse the level is quite small.
The eyecandy is basic. Too basic. Some tiles are bad worked of, but some of the details like carrots or eggs, are quite good worked out. In line 24 are some hurt spikes. The autor did’nt make them very well, their flying actually. Their also some flying eggs with 4 coins in it, also a small detail. In eyecandy overall is it too basic, so and 5. Also misses background. But because your Dutch, +0.2. ;) Just kidding.
Gameplay is not bad, good actualy. To bad the level is so small, the autor can get higher points if he maked his level bigger I think. You can jump good in this level, hop around freely, and their even some secrets here and their. Good use of warps, everything works good and not so much action, that pitty. No realy bugs in the gameplay, but to short so a 6.5.
Item placement is below-normal. Their are lighing some coins but their isn’t a bonus warp. That’s a small detail that some people forget and that lowers points, that’s here also the case. Some food stuff, for eyecandy I guess because you can’t get a Sugar-rush from it, but I like some cherry’s here and there, good spreaded. Also some jummy donuts. :) What I realy miss are gems and ammo. Their are I thought 12 gems in the whole level, that’s far to less. A basic level has at least 70 gems in it. Okay, and now the ammo. Particually nothing, 2 boxes of Seeker (gun 4) ammo. That’s all. For the rest you have to use your blaster. In overall food, can do better but okay. Gems and ammo, to less. A 4 for this. Practice with it.
The fun factor is not bad. You can have some fun with it but not to much because of the size of it. Not to much 1 line stuff, so this deserves an 5.7 for the fun.
Enemy placement is bad. In one part to much enemies and in the other part you can run freely around. In the end you face 3 Tuf bosses, a bit to much if you have only low weapon 4 ammo and a blaster left if you ask me. A 4 for this.
The result of this level is below-normal. It has some good points, but to much bad points. I enjoyd it the 3 minutes I have played it. Here are the ratings, I will give an average rating:
Item Placement: 4
Fun Factor: 5.7
Enemy placement: 4
Total: 25,2 points : 5 is an 5,04 so an 5.
Hmmm… this can be good. Well, I’ll review it later. I’m looking forward to it!
In overall I’ll give this pack an 4.5 because, the same as Trafton, brings back memories. Oh yeah, why do you call them old levels that suck? If you think you’r levels suck, don’t put it on the site.
Huh? Twise an upload, don’t upload same levels!
Hm, “A Shot For A Diamond”, an interesting name. The weapon placement was okay, you can hop around freely, lot’s of springs for the gameplay. A good, big level. The eyecandy is a bit overused in my opinion. The autor have used layer 5, wich is a background layer, for eyecandy on sprite layers. I think the autor have used almost every layer, much eyecandy on the foreground. An when you use to much eyecandy, the level get’s ugly and not very attracive.
GAMEPLAY: Good! 8.5
EYECANDY: Bad to medium: 6.5
PICKUPS: Pickups are hard to place, good spreaded. Good to very good: 9.0
FUN FACTOR: Good, but I won’t play it again I think… 7.5
A good old Diamondus level, lot’s of eyecandy and pickups. Doesn’t get boring and your hop around because there are many springs and poles. To bad you have used some layers bad. That cave stuff on layer 3 doesn’t look very good. But I think it’s your best level so far, keep up the good work and practise on eyecandy!
This is almost exactly the same as the original Tubelectric music. But you hear “are you ready?” in a quite stupid voice. And then you hear a(burb?) “Yes, I am”. Who said that? :)
It’s to small. There’s no real action in it. But there is a nice idea of gameplay: You have to collect 100 or 50 coins(don’t know what it exactly was) and then you get a bonus. But a good thing about the gameplay is that you can “hop” around. No strait paths. And when you get all 100 coins, you’r reward is 10 bleu gems and you have won.
The eyecandy is medium to good. The background layers, what I find difficult, is used well in the level. You have experience with layer 3, don’t you? I thought I fell and I don’t get out of that hole at pos 34,41. But you fall in a room with green springs and you’ll get out. Good eyecandy stuff on the ground: a canon and some vases, also some windows. Only in the main eyecandy are some bugs: The wall. Some stones don’t with in eachother. A cain at the foregound is floating, edit it or something.
The ammo placement is bad. Only 6 things of the Freezer ammo and 6 things of TNT. The silver coins are coming back to quick in my opinion. I don’t have much to tell about placement, because there almost none.
So in overall this is a quit basic, small level.
PROS: Nice idea, good eyecandy with a difficult to use tileset.
CONS: To small and a bit to easy to complete it.
Oh yeah, why the level save name is Koth?
Could’nt find tileset Battleships JJ1 or someting. Re-upload and include the tileset.
Hmmm… that’s strange, I did’nt found the level in my Home Cooked list. Try to re-upload again.(Or maybe I’m blind? ;) )
A very good Diamondus level. Diamondus is my favorit tileset. Many, some hard and some easy to find, secrets. Too bad that the most levels of the Diamdus tileset have the same music file. But it’s okay.
So, in overall: Good level, medium size, lots of diamonds.(I love diamonds!)
P.S.: Good for your first level, my first level was bad… ;( Oh yeah, did you like my Diamondus level, Trafton? :)
Well, it has a gameplay, not so good, but it has a gameplay. Work on your event stuff, as chandie said. Good weapon placement, but the levels are to small. You have to work on your eyecandy. There are vines obove carrots and the vines doesn’t even have the event “vine”. The eyecandy is flat, it looks if no attention payd on eyecandy but only on gameplay and pickups.
In overall shows this level a lot of promise, and that’s good. The only thing left to do for you is practising!
P.S.: If you don’t know how triggers work go to JCSref. That’s a site with info about it. :)

I thought that donwloads on J2O were supposed to be rated. I know for a fact that they are. And I figure that this isn’t different from any other battle/ctf/level pack.
I quote, from Fquist “levels should be rated for their quality and not for their goal, as it would mess up the site forever.” And I believed that you could just put levels up for N/A purpose before. But I also found out that I was wrong when people started to rate a level that I posted, even though I asked them not too.
I’m sorry if I didn’t understand the rules or something, but as far as I know, you are supposed to rate items posted on the J2O.[This review has been edited by URJazzCC]
Good work EvilMike, this level is just a collection of CTF levels, if you did’nt notist.
Yes, I like carrots. :)
The level wasn’t good. When you jump into a secret, nothing is lying there! Not a very good gameplay, I came from base to base easly.
Normaliy I would given a 4, but it is a nice name of the level so it will be a 4.2. :)
Eat your lima beans, Johnny.
