I hate you Darion. I spend all afternoon working on my entry off and on, and only come up with 4 tiles that I haven't scrapped. Yet. One of which is just a flipped version of another tile. Then you go and make something so simplistic that stills looks more interesting than mine.

Mine so far =\

Tiled... not much to see.

I kinda like this one better, less cluttered. Will do more this evening.

There are no ugly colours, only ugly combinations of colours.

This is my first real tile-based mock-up and I have run into a problem.


I made the area (not including the black outline) 160x144 just like Pep said and my tiles are all 16x16. I'm pretty sure I didn't mess up but it comes up as though I did since there's that one spot that seems to be wrong. Any help appreciated.

Oh opps, Gba retro.... I started working on 4 color nes tiles... (I think it was nes...might be snes) Dunno, took the colors from a screen shot from some black and white game i think was from nes.  I only read the title and saw retro... then again I still play supernintendo with yoshi safari and N64s lego racers and star fox so retro is an opinion i guese.  Anyway ill post my retro stuff tonight...

(JIC FYI NES = Nintendo; Snes = Super nintendo) EDIT: Sigh... JIC = Just in case...

No actually, I firstly made the canvas the right size then increased it by 1 on right and bottom and made the black outlines. I think I messed up when copy/pasting the tiles. I'll just start over.  :) Thanks for noticing that.
EDIT:
Okay, I redid the tiles and now everything fits perfectly, thus my first mock-up!  ;D

Ok heres a quick shot of mine, its not a standard RPG, its a Robot thingi... yeah...  It takes place in the 1950's.  Kinda like mech assault lone wolf, except its in iso, black and white, and only has 4 colors.... Yeah... Its not finished I still gotta add some kind of enimies and a text box at the bottom, and a life bar at the top. 
4 tiles...
