The major thing which is sticking out is that you're mixing pixel resolutions, and it looks atrocious. For instance the zombies sprites are 2x and the backgrounds are 1x, not to mention the main character who uses both 1x and 2x pixel sizes.

I'm not so good with critique or communication but I'll try and say what I think doesn't look so good.

The shades of grey you're using don't look so nice, try adding a bit of colour to it (bengoshia has shown this in an edit too). Especially in the white spots of the mushroom.

You could also benefit from some more interesting colours or hue shifting, the mushroom purples and the red enemy stand out for me there. There's also a lot of ugly banding like around the mushroom mouth and soldier guy's head.

For your sword animation, it looks a little strange and clumsy, almost like he's swinging a fish instead of a deadly sword. I got some good advice on animation in a topic of mine who explain it better than me:

Most of those images don't seem to hotlink very well (i.e., they're not showing for me).

Why do you only have a black outline on the top half?

Right click in the preview window and you can change the speed of the preview to "actual speed".

Seriously, you guys need to read this:
There is also a forum topic attached to the essay if you need more to read. Get that word out of your vocabulary.

Commercial Critique / Re: Commercial Critique - Shatterhand

Thought I'd flex my nerd muscles by mentioning that "Shatterhand" is a westernized port of a Japanese game called "Tokkyuu Shirei Solbrain", which in turn is based on a TV Show about robot cops or something.


Quote from: JoshF
I used the site Game Kommander for that information, which is far more reliable that Wikipedia.

From what I can tell it calls Shatterhand the original, and says Bandai made them update it to include one of their licenses for the Japanese release.

The abstractionist should not make their resolution that fine so that in the single pixel no longer feels like it belongs.

I don't understand what you're saying, is someone able to rephrase this for me. By "their resolution that fine" do you mean small resolution? "single pixel no longer feels like it belongs", what does that mean? Maybe I'm just out of touch with feelings.

Laziness with animation is horrible.
