Snorted when I read the part about the official levels being bad. I think that’s mostly a point of view thing; in my opinion those levels provided gameplay fitting a platformer game, perhaps not the best but definitely not bad.
Edits quickreview: Napo has typed the reviews himself in his post. Was going to change my rating to a 7 btw, so good for you ^^
Finally, a good level!
Using this tileset often can be tricky. However, you actually succeeded in making a good looking level! Everything’s there. Ofcourse, there are missing pieces or bugs. Your mistake was either to use layer 5 for something different than backup from layer 4, or you should have changed the animation on some spots. Some layer 3 bugs also.
The typical enemies can be found in this level. Quite logical.. Their placement is good, but sometimes just not enough enemies.. But, this level wasn’t entirely about enemies! ~Check gameplay. Still, it makes the level just a bit too easy..
I was amazed that this whole level didn’t contain a single piece of ammo. I was also amazed that I didn’t care. The level was more about the gameplay. TBH there weren’t any (or <1) pickups except for the 100 coins you had to collect.
I love it! This is from 2004? You should have released it earlier =P
Nice puzzles, not too many holdups, though there might have been a little bit too much from those stomp blocks. Secret routes, suckertubes, springs, more puzzles. This level is very fun to play!
It’s awesome to see you even spend time to convert the level from english to dutch, just for those people who haven’t it yet! However, the things you write on J2o should be english.. Is ‘Missies’ the real name for the pack you planned, because else you should have called it Missions, no ? ;-) But this wont cost you a nice rating, no!
enemies: typical, and just a bit too less of em. Makes it too easy.
pickups: poor, but its not about pickups here.
Can’t help it to give this a download recommendation and a nice rating.
The thing is, the LEVEL (-> JJ2 content) is, in fact, finished.
The utility however isn’t completed, not all quests we planned till now are programmed.
But, via the AUTO-UPDATE function, the utility will keep itself up-to-date, so in a matter of speaking, the download here IS complete.
It would be harsh to say a MMO game isn’t finished, because it is possible for us to KEEP adding quests, items, etc.
I wouldn’t say that this hotel would entertain me… for longer than 5 minutes. Further more, the lighting sux (why is it so dark in the rooms, no one would like to live there, since they cant see their room!), but you managed to get some eyecandy in it. All around the place you can find pieces of grass and such. One question, why didnt you use the giant carrots? I think it will make the eyecandy better.
Oh.. Gameplay sux too, btw. Why is it so empty everywhere? Would have filled lots of empty space with more houses and such.. Entertaining stuff. There isn’t alot entertainment, except for the Luck Tube, which you have added with alot of irritating noise. Further more, I can’t get back up to the layer with the shop, once I’ve gone downstairs.
Way to many coins you placed. Had to put my sound bit lower, cause the only sound that came out was “pling”!
As Labratkid said, don’t upload these type of city/hotels (or put more entertainment in it so it’s more interesting). But I disagree with Lab about the hosting. Don’t host this at all.

I give you one hint JazzBusters: Or you stop doing this stupid thing on the download section and start a Topic on the forums, or I’m gonna give these ‘lvls’ a real rating!!! Be warned >D XD >)
I got another idea for a myth: how long can Jazz hold his breath under water? Or how many tiles does Spaz run per minute? Or:
is JazzBusters complete stupid?
This is going about nothing… Please start a message at JCF, or just STOP with this nonsense. Jamie and Adam do things better =p
It is that I’m nice today, but a level like this, OMG!!
This is a hotel?? It doesn’t have a right start pos, it’s no nice eyecandy (ahum) and the gameplay sux.
Happy reviewing and playing? I don’t think so…

EDIT: Sorry Shaddow Rabbit, I didn’t knew that, but still its not a real/([good]) lvl

My first thought by playing this level:
WOW!! WTH!? This is beautifull!
My second thought by playing this level:
How big is this anyway!? And how long
would it have been to make such lvl as this??
My third thought by playing this level:
OMG where is that dopefish animation? I can’t find it =) And where are the rest of the diamonds? How to get that TNT??
My last thought by playing this level:
Where is that idiot exit!? =P
As you can read, it’s a difficult Diamond Hunt. I was thinking there wouldn’t be an exit, but hey, whats described on that wall there?
You must have put much time in this lvl by eyecandy, cause it rux. There is nothing more to say about it. It’s so beautifull…
Gameplay is great, cause it’s just like a puzzle! Diamonds here, diamonds there, I’m still finding some diamonds!
O, this was the last one =).. I was just shooted pass the exit with these tubes, so you hadn’t enough time to see a sign with ‘exit’ on it. Many corridors and caves everywhere in the lvl. Just like White Rabbit said: sometimes you just swim against the wall, and sometimes you swim trough it. Irritating, but than on the fun way.
Placement is also nice, but I saw there where so much diamonds next to each other, so I got something like 23 allready when I where swimming something like less than a minute.. But then, the line of it just disapeared. Where are the rest of the diamonds!? I still need 77 diamonds! But what are these MCE’s doing here? =)
If you want a REAL Treasure Hunt, host this one. No fighting, but a real SEARCH. Oh and one more thing before I end this review:
.. Nope doesn’t work.
… also doesn’t work…
… OKAY HOW DO I GET THESE AEFPOIJAE TNT AMMO!!?
This level just needs a 8.7, no discuss about it.
How long has it been that I reviewed something?? Well, lets see…
“Island in the saphire sea”… sounds good to me =P, lets download it.
….downloading left…3.2.1.all downloads are finished.
BEEP BEEP! BAP! KAZOW!
Wow! This tileset is really great! everything is in it, even a treashure chest. How long have you working on this?
The tileset contains enough eyecandy, like treashure chests, caves, spikes, cannons and beautifull background stuff.
When you want to make a nice lvl, I suggest you to use this tileset if you want a nice lvl.
But there are some tilebugs… Too bad… I would give it a nine or something! Also under water, the cannons, cannonballs and even jazz/spaz will turn in strange colours…??
But those 2 things wouldn’t get me off to download this stuff, hear me?? AARGH! I’m the captain of the black peril and next island where we will stop… the Island in th Saphire Sea! WHahaha! AARGH!
Review by Carrotpie
I must say it goes here about a great conversion of the old Prince of Persia game! Why nobody did review this, I don’t understand. Anywayz:
Emm, hard to say :-P that’s because the original hadn’t that much eyecandy, too! But what I’ve found are some good things. Skeletons, a sword, poles, spikes, a door… He just looks like the original!! (I cant stop with saying that =D )
I tell you, it’s a great conversion. You must download this. If you play Prince of Persia 5 or something, and never seen how it started, you really have to download.
For this great tileset conversion, I must give an 8. I can’t make it lower…
And a download recommedation!
P.S. Hey Dx! Maybe this is something for your TT3?? =D
My real review comes later, first I have to delete something like 300 levels so I can see the FSP levels in my Home Cooked List. Now you all think that I’m crazy and I’ve to use the Bat, but it doesnt work.
“Jingle Bells, Jingle Bells, Row gots a level for uhhuhuhhhs.”
You’re the first with Christmas levels, and I’m happy the levels from Santa are arriving now =) I hate the old levels cause I’ve played them to much =P.
Review for: “Noel’s Passage”
You can see that Row did his best for this level, cause the lvl gots lots of eyecandy stuff. There are christmas trees, caves, snow on the front layer, and he even put a Santa Clause on the background. With pressents and his reindeers, of course.
TO BAD: At every tree, you’ll have to look at the ground. You’ll see a big bug! Shadows are wrong.
I like the big level. It’s very big and contains many secret passages and warps. Found the carrots allready? MJAM!
TO BAD: WHEEEEEEE! There is no Coin Warp! BOOHOOHOO!
Every battle lvl needs ammo, P-ups and carrots, and this one contains it. Row also put food and drinks in the lvl, and he have chosen the places very good. And it’s good Row, that you didnt put RF-up or SEEKER-up in this level. I hate those ups =P Only love them when I have them =D
TO BAD: There is nothing bad or to bad, just okay.
I think those things I told you would tell everybody enough to download this! Isn’t that a pressent of Santa? =)
Rating a 7.7
When I start the program, I’ll get this message:
Component ‘richtx32.ocx’or one of its dependencies not correctly registered: a file is missing or invalid.
please update the file and put this component into the download.
Well, this is very usefull for people that makes many levels, or download much to review them (like DX :P). Also it’s for me a must, cause I even cant open my own levels to test them :D!
There are enough things what I could tell you, but I will have it short:
This is a must if your HCL is full. You can simpely open levels by searching them with captain cook. All names will apear in a line of the alphabet. Then you choose your character, and press start!
“A new invention for this universe from Jazz Jackrabbit!” – Daily Carrot news
“This is just TOO SIMPLE!! YAY!” – Carrot-Airmail
“everybody, just everybody, needs this! This is a must for yong and old, big and tiny.” – Jazzpress
so how I could say it: DOWNLOAD THIS THIS IS A MUST!!!!
EDIT1: Hey, now they’re not on alphabet line! This makes it very hard to find levels. (-0.2)
Cooba, the backgrounds(kinda caves)where the only eyecandy that was in the tileset! If you think its bad, say to Blade. He made the tileset.
And again, another CTF by Snooz.
African Lowlands CTF
With this nice eyecandy snooz made, turns out to a nice Jungle garden in the game :-P
GOOD: The “Jungle” tileset is a good tip if you want nice eyecandy. Snooz made tree’s, poles, and
Darn! I forgotten the word for it! A yes! and nice caves. And everything is used perfect for this. And the secret areas near tree’s are also handy.
BAD BUGS: Hmm… Most times, all lvls have a bug. Also profs. At some places when you stand on a part of a tree that comes out the ground, you will see a bug. Layer 3 not used well…
GOOD: The importantst thing of it: no(didnt found this time :’( ) “getting stuck” places. Enough shortcuts, and the bases are far enough of each other.
BAD: WHHEEEEEH!!!! NOTHING!! ;-)
GOOD: Everything. Enough carrots I think, and the ammo is placed on the right spots. Bravo!
I think I told enough for now. I’m gotting… ZZ.. SLEEPY… ZZ.. ZZZZZZZ.
A nice cussion for me.. Huh?? You want a rating? shaking yes Hmm okay… You get a 7.7 from me… And now let me sleep okay? =)
Carrotpie’s new message: “A carrot is blue!”
(Content replacement. Please avoid using swear words. -Trafton)
Just as Blurred said. The game needs work. It doesnt seem you really worked on this. Although, placement was not THAT bad! Enough crates and ammo. But try to get better than this.
You would say: “Another test. Bleh…”, but this is not a test like that. You could improve the eyecandy, though… There are some tests witch are easy, very hard, and normal. At the end there is a test u cant play out. If you’re Spaz and you get in, you CANT get out. You have to walk over a racing line witch goes very fast! The problem is that it goes TOO FAST!! Spaz wont be able to get out there, so thats not very nice. But the rest is okay. Nice tube-background. You did work on this test. On some places you can get hurt…(.)And thats stupid: You have a test witch need weapons to get out. TNT bouncers RF… But if you didn’t get enough TNT at the first, and you get in another lvl like this, you cant get out! Your TNT is on another side of the wall where you’re playing on that moment. :-P But however, I will rate it. You get from me a… 6.5! If you work more on eyecandy, could improve your rating.
Eat your lima beans, Johnny.
