Good:

-Not to easy.
-Two bosses(one is protected and can’t be killed, but he throws his spike thingy at you. It’s the tuff boss.)
-Originality

Bad:

-Not much eyecandy.
-Boring layout.
-Bad event placement.

Overall: Nice try, but practice a bit.

Y’all should be a bit nicer to the authors…

At least making 8×8 levels is original…

Kinda cool.

I’m too lazy to mention all the good things that have been mentioned above, so I’ll just say which things lowered the rating in my review.

The tileset use: some tiles weren’t used as Blade intended, I think. Especially in the background. -0.5

The layout: the bad part about the layout is that it makes the level way to easy. The path from the red base to the blue one is almost just straight. And I don’t think anyone will go to all the stuff in the upper part of the level when it’s hosted online. -1

That’s all. Apart from that, great level.

10-1-0.5=8.5

I hate it when the author says “give this a good rating”. You can’t just get good ratings by asking it. You must deserve them. And in this case, you don’t.

“Don’t give my levels bad ratings” you said. It’s not up to you to say others not to give bad ratings, reviewers may give whatever rating they want.

They don’t work? Did you compile the sets with the imges? If you didn’t, I suggest you do it, and otherwise I don’t think I can really help you…

Labratkid: “Never in my life will I give a tileset made with MS Paint over a 5.0. I refuse to, because they just come out looking bad.”
So, you never rate paint tilesets above 5? All my tilesets use paint, and none of them ever got lower than an average rating of 6(I even think my WORST tileset got 6.6). It’s not that hard to get things right with paint. Just check out my sets, they all use Paint, as I said. And I want you to take back what you said about paint sets, cuz you were wrong.
And using the “made with Paint” and “this is TSF” arguments as cons is just childish and unfair. Not evryone can aford something better than paint. And not evryone knows you can send a set to someone to let him compile it.

Ok, I might rate this stuff later, I didn’t even download it yet. I just saw Labratkids review, and I really wanted to say the things I wrote above.

Now for the tileset:

I’m sorry to say this, but this is probably the worst Paint tileset I’ve seen. Keep trying though, you will get it some day. I’m not gonna give a rating. It would seriously damage you’re average rating. But I know how people often struggle with Paint, but it’s possible to get good things out of it. Check out my article about making tilesets. There’s a hint for a better palette. My sets use paint to. And they’re almost all above average, and that might encourage you.[This review has been edited by Waz]

hits self on head

Of course! I edited the level! Sorry, guys. I always thought a level made with a 1.23 tileset could work in 1.23 even if it’s made with 1.24.

Labratkid: This IS 1.23. BlurredD compiled it in 1.23. Everyone can have it, normally.

De description moet in het engels, niet iedereen is nederlands hier.

That was dutch, in case you wouldn’t know. I didn’t even download this actually… I just said to the author things should be written in english.

Good for a first try.

Cool tileset! :P

Tileset use: very good. A few bugs with flipped tiles, but mainly good.

Eyecandy: not much of that, but it’s a race, so we’re not there for sight seeing…

Events: ice gun, a few warps, springs. The warps were kind of interresting. They made the game a bit like a “game of chance”, you know… Not always sure where you’ll end up with these warp. They have several targets.

Layout: this level was made “on one side”, and then flipped to “the other side”. Rather basic. But not bad.

Overall: an average level, worth a download.

I give 7.2.

Exellent? Give a better reason for that kind of rating, Flash.

This level was at least above average, and rather big. There were a tiny bit to much ennemies, and there was a bad weapon placement. Eyecandy was also bad. But the layout was great! And there was a good gameplay. To bad there’s no background scenery on layers 5-7.

Anyway, a good level, worth a download, just to see it.

I give 8.2.

Don’t put passwords on your levels. No one will try to edit them. Anyway, I can’t rate this. It doesn’t appear in my homecooked level list. And I can’t look at it in JCS.

—Try launching it using the command line

Violet:
“Ok, correct me if I’m wrong, but is this much different from saying “This level has horrible gameplay, so don’t rate the gameplay.”? “
Er… you’re kinda right there Violet.
Though I believe this is a bit different…

“The tilesets are small, so you can not rate the eyecandy of the levels (but you CAN rate the tileset use…. hmmm).”
You mean tileset use goes with eyecandy?

“No hook in the smaller one, only one type of block.”
Actually, the vine can be used as a hook. But I understand that you don’t consider it as a hook… Maybe I had to show it in the levels. I’m not asking you to change what you said, since you’re more or less right.

I’m not annoyed with reviewers. Are you saying that because of my article? I wrote that article more for the others than for me, I already said that. I made these cuz I like small tilesets. And I suddenly felt like making some.

Ok, so much for the comments on your review for now.

Say, you’re not going to actually give the rating, are you? You rated the theme of the tilesets. And, as I asked in the text file, ONLY rate by following what I said. In case you wouldn’t, I asked you not to rate. That’s my right, isn’t it?

Well ,there’s kind of an idea in it… but this gets boring real fast. Maybe, the same type of game would be more fun in a bigger level, why not with obstacles. But, in a bigger level, the goalkeeper might have a problem… Another problem is the fact that the shell can get buttstompt, and broken. That way it would be to easy in a bigger level to prevent the shell from going into a goal. In a small level, the other player might not act quikly enough to do that. But this gametype sucks in a small level, so were kinda getting in a vicious cercle(I don’t know if the word “vicious cercle” exists in english :P).

I won’t give this a rating, since I consider it as some sort of demo level to show a gametype. And the soccer gametype already existed before today, which leaves me with nothing to rate.

A very basic tileset, but not a bad one…

Graphics: most of the graphics were just fine. Nothing special.

Eyecandy: lots of that. This tileset almost CONSISTS of eyecandy…

Animations: many animations. And good ones. The skeleton is kinda weird, though…

Competition: I don’t think there are many tilesets with the same theme. Actually, the theme is hard to describe.

Masks: very good. Nothing to say.

Overall: average tileset worth a download.

Trafton, instead of writing such a long and irritating review, you could have just said something about the thing the author actually changed, which is a spring and a copter… it’s totally useless to write all taht stuff about the tileset use, the eyecandy… we all know it, ok?

Ok, now for the real review…

So, you changed the copter with springs. That was a good idea. I actually never had any problems with that copter, and this level has been edited so many times, but it’s still nice to think about fixing problems… I’m glad you changed the shield with a fastfire. Nothing is more irritating than a polish or dutch rookie who doesn’t know a word of english and who always uses that shield…(I’ve got nothing against dutch or polish folks, mind you. I’m dutch myself. But these two nationnalities are very often seen online and not all of them speak english.)

Overall: good you though about it, but it’s not nececarry to download. Evrybody could do it.

I won’t give a rating for this, since all you did was adding a few events.

Not too bad for a small set, but it can be done better…MUCH better.

There’s some eyecandy in the set, some basic stuff, and that’s about it… I don’t think people will ever be able to make something godd with this, since it’s actually to hard to see where you’re going, and there aren’t enough ground tiles.

To some guys above: you think it’s hard to make small sets? Well, you’re kinda wrong. I don’t want to brag, but I made a small one, that would probably have won the contest if I took part of it. It was actually very basic, but better than all the 40 tiled-tilesets I’ve seen so far, and it has got more xtra stuff, I believe… again, I really don’t want to brag, that ain’t me. But small sets aren’t that hard to make.

Edit: I gave the wrong rating. I gave a 3, but I wanted to give 6.

Violet: what’s so boring about using my own sets? It’s far more original than always seeing those official sets.
And about the masking of the used tilesets: that masking is perfect, exactly the way I wanted it to be. I don’t get what you meant with the problems on the pillars(which has nothing to do with the level, but with the tilesets, and shouldn’t influence the rating).

Edit: ah, ok.

Dx Dc: I’m very happy to get a 10. But, most people here would apreciate an english review instead of a dutch one. And if you give such a high rating, it would mostly be nececary to give a few arguments. [This review has been edited by Waz][This review has been edited by Waz]
