Next Commercial Critique (July) Suggestions

on: July 07, 2006, 07:17:28 pm
This ain't my gig but since goat has gone missing, this be the place to post your choices.

If it were up to me we'd talk about Captain Blood or something else with absurd 16 color overall palettes, or maybe Creatures for the c64 or Exile for the bbc macro, but let's again go with what the people want. So place your suggestions!

Mayhem in Monsterland (c64)
Reason: Because it looks almost like an Amiga platformer! The graphics are just incredible considering the restrictions of the platform. And it's a great game too ;D

I'd like to suggest that instead of a vote, either Helm, Ptoing, Conceit, Pep, Kon, St0ven, Supergoat or another talented pixeller pick the game. The last CCs were good, but I think we'd have a much better one with an informed choice rather than mob rule. My suggestion for the CC is the first game suggested by one of these guys that is seconded[by another talented pixeller].

Earthworm Jim, both actually (well, 1&2, i don't really know if it had any further sequels), mostly, because i didn't play them very far and want some more eye-candy. From what i remember, the styles (of the respective first level, i said that i didn't get very far :)) are quite different, we could have some sort of oppostion

Commander Keen, the last one. So much style, high saturation and crazy monsters

Metal slug or The Immortal.
Modern artists are told that they must create something totally original-or risk being called "derivative".They've been indoctrinated with the concept that bad=good.The effect is always the same: Meaningless primitivism
