My guess is, they use flat color tiles or dithered tiles because they're faster to draw than textured tiles. For flat tiles, pixels are just set to a given color, whereas for textured tiles, we have to copy all the 256 pixels from RAM to video memory, wich takes longer. And this really matters for a scroller. At least, it's how it used to work in DOS. Seems to be same in the C64. Note that the trees may use flat tiles too.

Despite the speed issue, the game's rather slow in my computer (AMD 1.1)! Is it because the XP is emulating the DOS mode ? Other than that, excellent game (behind Gods off course).


I like this one better. He has a "I wanna punch someone" attitute.
While the other (open hands) is more like a wrestler.

I noticed you changed the design for the walk cycle,
it's great but I still prefer the other one.

the "enter" is great but steals attention from the "matriax".

I like the moon and the bubbles, not the grass.

I like the bubbles!

Adam, maybe you could write a quick comment on those sprites which haven't got any votes.
I know my freestyle is unlikely to be in a game, but I thougth my boktai ones were good.
Thanks. Only a contest like that to put my lazy ass to work :D

Congratulations Faceless!

So, you found out that you can make custom socks,
and the first sock you make is one with.. a guitar O_o
instead of, say, your avatar, super-mario or donkey kong ?

I don't believe you!

hey matriax, I'm your fan ;D

I agree that number 6 is the best. However, I'd spin the A's a little.
And I think the bubbles are too shiny.

Good luck in the demoscene!

I made a little Popeye:

Great entries so far :D

Here's mine:

Popeye freestyle (on his best shape lol):
