Battle
- Rabbit City by KillerCarrot : 5.69KB : high **
I hope you don't expect me to come up with a comment for every level.. :)
- Ambush Island by raptor JPL : 27.2KB : high **
I like the design, but you may notice that most of the platforms have a rectangular shape. I always encourage variations in the shape of the platforms.
Race
- Electric Speedway by KillerCarrot : 6.69KB : high **
Focuses a lot around springs, which is obviously not a new concept, but is still a challenge in Race levels. Be sure to get a lot of ice.
Tilesets
- Smash Bros by Jazz : 51.2KB : **
There's some nice eye candy, but most of the floor/wall/ceiling tiles are just different colored blocks.

-Sorry, Madcat
On the 20th I posted a level called "Madcat's Hot Hothotobsel Battle" that was submitted by "Madcat". I just learned that the level was not created by the real Madcat. Somebody was using Madcat's e-mail address without his knowledge to send me the level.

Keep in mind that I do not tolerate people who submit levels under somebody elses name or who call somebody elses level their own. If I learn that somebody is doing this, I will never post level submissions from that person again.

The eye candy is eratic, but it's still fun. Too easy though.

The design is great. There's really nothing to complain about.
- Lost World Battle Pack by Ninja Dodo : Pack (2 Levels) : 98KB : high **

CTF
- Medieval Frenzy by Disguise GPW : 15.1KB : ***
It's an awesome level, but it doesn't use the Diamondus tileset. It's a miracle! ;-)

Treasure Hunt
- Treasure Lab by Ninja Dodo : 4.19KB : **
This is his first multiplayer level. I actually think there are too many gems. At least it looks nice.
- Jazz in Marioland?! by Ninja Dodo : 24KB : **
There are plenty of gems, but the eye candy needs improvement and it looks like only layers 4 and 8 were utilized. However, this is an "old level".

-Been a LONG Time...
Wow, it's been like forever since I last updated. I'm very sorry; I've been extremely busy since I started school on September 2.

Well, we've got a new feature for the Downloads section. If this doesn't help you to make good levels, I don't know what will. stripe has started something called the "Butt Ugly Level of the Week". Each week, stripe will pick out one level that is really bad and it will be put on the Hall of Shame, as such. My best instincts said not to do this, but I asked around and everybody seemed to find the idea to be interesting and funny. So, you better start making good levels, or else... :-) For future reference, you can find a link to the Butt Ugly Level of the Week at the top of this page.

btw, I've still got another 1000 submissions to post, so don't worry about your stuff not being here. =)

It is original, and yet it needs *more*... I'm sure that the final version will be worthy of ***. I have no idea how this pack compares to the real Final Fantasy games.

Very cool. Most of the levels aren't ***, but I graded it a little higher cause there's so many good levels.
- Speedy's Junglebattle by Speedy : 6.07KB : low ***
The trigger zone event is showed off and both the design and eye candy are pretty good.
- Tube Paradise by Iron Eagle : 65.2KB : high **
The eye candy on layer 4 is good. There isn't much on the other layers though.
- Paradise World by Son of Jazz : Pack (4 Levels) : 418KB : **
Needs more eye candy on all layers. Overall design is ok.
- 3D Blast by JJ Tublear : Pack (3 Levels) : 588KB : low **
The levels look great, but it's extremely easy to make levels using the 3D Battle tilesets. Thus the low **.

-LN Release Date
iCeD JPL has estimated that it will take another 12 months to finish Lord Nux. (You've gotta wonder how many of his beta testers will still be around a year from now. ;)

Speaking of beta testers... iCeD would like to apologize to Arazi for forgetting to metion him in his final beta tester list.

While Lord Nux is under production, iCeD will also be working on a CTF level called "Volcano".

-Unofficial Jazz 3 Update
JJ Tublear still needs help with his upcoming pack named "Jazz Jackrabbit 3". You can volunteer for any of the following parts, except for the Holiday Hare levels. JJ Tublear is doing those. You can also ask for a beta testing job.

- Holiday Hare Part: Uses HH98, 95 & 94 tilesets
- Jazz 2 Part:
* Episode 1: Uses Castle, Castle Night, Carrotus, Carrotus Night, Science1, Science2 & Science3 tilesets
* Episode 2: Uses Colony, Colony Night, Wonderland, Wonderland Night, Beach & Beach2 tilesets
* Episode 3: Uses Diamondus, Diamondus Night, Tubelectric, Tubelectric Night, Medivo & Medivo Night tilesets
* Episode 4: Uses Jungle, Jungle Night, Hell, Hell 2, Inferno & Inferno 2 tilesets
- TSF Part: You obviously need the full version of the game to help out in this area.

I personally wouldn't structure "Jazz 3" so much like Jazz 2 since that's pretty unoriginal, but...

- Disco by cc Orango : Hotel/Clan level : 98.8KB : high *
It's a little more original than most hotel levels, but it still needs a ton of work. The eye candy can be improved, none of the events respawn, etc.
- The New Pipe Maze by Spaznukemujp : 2.73KB : high *
It's not actually a maze level, but it's about as good as a typical maze level.

Very large and great looking; plenty of eye candy and a great background. Good job!

-The Law
Level quality, as always, isn't as great as I would like it to be. If everybody would follow these simple rules, we would have much better levels:

- ALL levels MUST use ALL 8 LAYERS. I promise there is not a single tileset that doesn't allow you to use all of the layers.
- ALL levels MUST be worked on for at least 1 week. That means at least 7 days of work. A good level should be worked on for AT LEAST 15 hours. Yes, 15 HOURS.
- ALL levels MUST be tested by AT LEAST 2 other people who are competent in finding problems. ALL levels MUST also be tested by yourself. In fact, you should spend more time beta testing than creating the level. I am NOT kidding.
- ALL levels MUST have something new and creative in them.
- I do NOT want ANY kind of level updates. I've rarely had a *** level that had an update. Do NOT rush your level just so people can download it. No offense, but that makes NO sense at all. Rushing your level and getting * gets you only a few downloads. Spending time on your level and getting *** will result in perhaps hundreds of downloads. Which do you want? (Note: I do not consider full versions of demos to be level updates, but I do expect both the demo and full version to be flawless)

A final, important FACT:

Wakeman dose NOT give levels bad ratings. YOU give levels bad ratings when YOU decide not to spend time on it, when YOU decide not to use all 8 layers, when YOU decide not to have people beta test it, and when YOU aren't creative!

I hope I didn't discourage anybody... I'm just giving you a few tips on level creating. :-)

-Rating Change
After further evaluation of Nutken's Crazy Clan Level, I have decided to change the rating from a high * to a low **. I think my frustration with all of those hotel levels affected my grading.

btw, you're dead meat if you send me another one of those hotel levels. :-)

-Episode Music
Ripsaw recently told me that his upcoming level pack will have music from the following bands:

- Marialyn Manson
- Korn
- Fear Factory
- Black Sabbath
- Coal Chamber
- Mettalica
- and more

I can't say that I like that selection, but... :)

- Let's Rock by Dewo : 253KB : ***
Looks great, is difficult, and it has some interesting aspects. I swear that I've seen this level before though. hmm...
- Underwater Rabbit by Dewo : 8.66KB : low ***
Difficult and very nice looking.
- UZIkonijnen by Mark Marijnissen : 74.4KB : low ***
Plenty of stuff to shoot and collect, which keeps things interesting. I think he went overboard on the weapons though. At one point there were so many animations on the screen that I couldn't fire my gun. They eye candy is perfect.
- Jazz on Mobius by Knux : Episode (10 Levels) : 614KB : **
I really enjoyed playing this, but the eye candy and design could use a lot more work, especially in the Battle level.
Battle
- The CrazyClan Level by Nutkens : Hotel/Clan levels : 398KB : low **
I guess you don't really need this if you're not in the CrazyClan.

btw, these hotel levels are really getting on my nerves. Every single one uses the same tileset and every single one looks exactly the same. Can't *somebody* create an *original* hotel level?!?!

Miscellaneous
- Fight to the Finish by Elias FF : RPG : 3.82MB (23MB when extracted) : Instructions
Created using RPG Maker 95, just like Dino Trigger. It is very fun. My only complaint it that I think there are too many enemies. The battles become sorta long and mundane after awhile. That set aside, this is great!

The full version of The Return of Evil should be released soon. EvilMike has admitted that it probably won't get ***. I'm surprised; most people wouldn't want to admit something like that. :)

Next EvilMike will be creating a level pack called SoY: Spam of Yak. It is designed to make you laugh and give you a good challange but will not make you scream and want to grab an a-bomb and blast your computer like SXR did. (I didn't come up with that; Evil did :)

Want to help? One or two music guys are needed to make music. If you are into art, you can make a new tileset for use in a QoB-like menu. Or, you can do something else if you can think of something... EvilMike just needs proof that you're good.

- Golf World by The ? : Pack (3 Levels) : 43.8KB : **
I find the main level to be hard to navigate, but it does look sorta cool. This was based off of a battle level so it doesn't fit the Single Player category so well in some areas.

- Townhouse Battle by Allan : 6.64KB : high **
There are no events, which can make a level become quite dull. High ** cause it looks great.
- Razz Pack 1 by Razz : 5 Levels : 13.6KB : **
I couldn't play two of the levels because I didn't have the tilesets in my TSF folder. (Remember to always send me custom tilesets and music with your levels!!!) The levels I could play didn't have the greatest design.
- ShanD Pack 2 by ShanD : 80.3KB : 4 Levels : high **
Two of the levels have too many small platforms and not enough big ones. I always encourage having variations in platform size in Battle levels. Other than that, this is very nice.
- Billy's WarParty by Billy Boom : 3.75KB : high **
What he has is nice, but it's sorta small and there is some redundancy in the design.
- The Dragon is on Fire by Rat Killer : 2.47KB : **
The design could be better. As with most Battle levels, it's fiine but there's nothing that sets it apart from all other Battle levels.
- Battle Out! by Mr. Magoo FK : Version 2 : 2.67KB : **
It could still use some work in the eye candy and event departments. Also, is there any purpose in having gems and 1-ups in multiplayer, besides the fact that they could be nice decorations? :)

Now that we have a cow tileset we just need a chicken tileseset and I'll be happy. :-)

This level is different from other puzzle levels I've played. It didn't get me frustrated when I played it. However, lack of frustration also means lack of difficulty, although I still found it to be challenging.
- Cold Spikes of Ouch 2 by Rastus : 149KB : low **
To tell you the truth, this would almost work better as a race level. :)

-Unofficial Jazz Jackrabbit 3
JJ Tublear GPW TA RS MB Pokemon (hehe, that's a long name :) is making a large level pack called Jazz Jackrabbit 3. I wouldn't call it that, but...

It's been broken into 3 parts:

1. Jazz Jackrabbit 3: Evas capture
2. Jazz Jackrabbit 3: Evas rescue
3. Jazz Jackrabbit 3: Devan steals the Clockmand Diamond

Part 1 will be using Jazz 1 tilesets, Part 2 will be using Jazz 2 and Holiday Hare tileset and Part 3 will be using TSF tilesets.

JJ Tublear needs help in the following areas:

1. Level Making
2. Tileset Fixing
3. Beta Testing

If you would like to help, email JJ Tublear at sean4@catsrule.garfield.com.

-Solo Island Pack
Outlaw UOI is working on a battle pack that will consist of a jungle island level, a futuristic island level and another typical battle on an island. What is an "island"? Well, a real island would be surrounded by water. These levels are surrounded by warps. Of course, since it's a 2D environment only the bottom of the level has warps. Anyway, these Solo Island levels should be released relatively soon because Outlaw would like to have them ready before the Dreamcast is released. I think you can figure out why... :)

- Christmas in Chaos: Devan's Toys by Son of Jazz : Episode (3 Levels) : 390KB : low ***
Long, fun levels.
- Black Chasm by SpazRocks : Version 2 : 48.9KB : **
It probably would have been high ** if I would have had the tileset for the first level. :)
- Frostbitten by Seth Heyer : 2.4KB : low **
The eye candy isn't especially good; difficulty is good.
Battle
- Relm of Rabid Rabbits by Shw RR : 9.16KB : ***
The trigger zone event was used nicely and the scenery is great.
- Cool Battle Arena by Son of Jazz : Pack (3 Levels) : 631KB : high **
Small, but very nice levels.
- HazardDAWG's Ship by HazardDAWG : 6.7KB : **
Interesting in some ways, but I think it could have been organized better.
- Select and Fight! by Ronin : 4.51KB : high *
Before entering the Battle arena you get to choose what weapons you want. Unfortunately, the eye candy isn't too great.
- Battle Pack 1 by Brandon : 6 Levels : 628KB : *
Too many shields; most of the eye candy doesn't fit together correctly...
- Another Maze by Mr. Magoo FK : 2.63KB : *
You guys should already know what I think of mazes...
Treasure Hunt
- Garden Gemz by Son of Jazz : 4.76KB : ***
Good placement of gems; great eye candy.
Race
- Gold Rush '99 by Son of Jazz : 29.1KB : high **

-Top 100
The top ten was getting boring because it barely ever changed. So, I made it into a Top 100. :)

Click here to see if your level has been one of the top hundred levels on J2C.

Note: Please keep in mind that this is the Top 100 since March 6 of this year, not the Top 100 of all time.

- Puzzles n Lizards by The ? : 75.9KB : high ***
Creative, nice looking and very fun. This is the kind of level that I like to see. :)
- Blox World by PrOtOmAn X : 137KB : high **
I always love playing levels that use Jazz 1 tilesets, especially when they're as good as this one.
- Pikachu Land by ??? : 65.3KB : **
An unfinished level. So, you can edit it if you want...
- The Quest for the Diamond by Atmcdragon : Pack (4 Levels) : 13.8KB : low **
The first few levels are ok, even if they do have too many carrots, but you get stuck in a wall when you enter the last level. I can't figure it out. The two beta testers that were mentioned in the readme must have been asleep when they tested this cause I don't see how they could have missed such an obvious problem. =)
- Hath Warp by ??? : 75KB : low **
Small and simple.
- Gadget Zone (Demo) by ??? : 78.2KB : low **
I don't think this one was even beta tested.
Battle
- Castle of Darkness by Nemesis AD : 3.67KB : **
Very good, but nothing I haven't seen before.
- Killer Carrots by KillerCarrot : 3.87KB : high **
Good design and placement of events, except there's too many powerups in the coin warp.
- SPRINGS! by WhiteOut : 5.66KB : **
Its design is like a layout of a hotel level, but it's not a hotel level..
CTF
- The Lost Flag by The NEW spaz : 96.5KB : low **
Can be difficult to navigate; the tileset could have been used better.
- Flag Rabbit by Haze Hackrabbit : Pack (5 Levels) : 343KB : ***
Includes 4 versions of Flag Rabbit and one "hockey" level. Very good.
- No More Mr. Nice Rabbit... by Haze Hackrabbit : 140KB : ***
The Jazz 1: Deckstar tileset was used very well.
- Torture Castle by iCeD JPL : Version 2 : 5.33KB : low ***
A couple minor changes bumped this to a low ***, but I'm still a little skeptical...
- CTF Pack by Talec LP : 4 Levels : 236KB : **
Locating the CTF bases is a little more difficult than I would wish and one of the levels is an obvious copy of Under Siegeness. That set aside, this is a good pack that could just use a little more work.
Tilesets
- Fantasy World by The Killer : 166KB : ***
*WoW*
- Cats by Supercat : 29KB : **
It has cats. And it is super. hmm... :)

-Apologies
I'm sorry for the infrequent download updates. I've been very busy with many other things. I'll try to keep these maintained better in the future.

Obviously, I've added the news from June and July into the Archives. The links to the archives from October 1998 to now are at the bottom of this page.

Also, I've still got 12 level submissions and a bunch of level news to post, so don't freak out if you don't see your levels listed above. :)

-Tilesets Wanted
Slash is looking for tilesets that are inside of a UFO for use in his upcoming ID4 level pack. So far he has finished the abduction part. He is also looking for somebody to help him with his Hotel Orion level. You can contact Slash at nicolai@naspa.net.
