Figuring out where to place the UI elements. (This is the size of the iTouch/iPhone screen)

Hmm, it seems a bit odd that the farmost trees are more faded than the wall behind them.

Color edit. Also got closer to the GUI placement that I was thinking of.

Trying to make monsters?

Trying to make a skunk?

Something feels wrong with the trees :/
Main character is an archer?

the guy in brown is very different from other characters, I think it would be better that way

SDJHSDJHS This looks so amazingly beautiful! All of the pallets look lovely and soft and just go together amazingly, I wish I had this ability of yours that you have. One thing I noticed is the jump state. It seems a bit weird to me based on other platformers. When jumping on platformers I can think of you have that generic mario pose, I don't feel like it's bad to sort of incorporate that into this project a bit more. Not too strong but a little bit more than what we see now might be good? That's my opinion though, it probably looks good in action.

Thanks XLR8ED, I couldn't agree with you more.

Project update: I just found my composer and programmer! Looks like this thing is really going to happen!




Working on the "red forest" biome. I wanted to make things interesting.

Since you aim at a iPhone game now, you may want to get a look at the frogatto story on controls placement on the iPhone screen.

I like how you introduce small details in the dark area in the bottom of the screen, on monster.gif  and mock2.png. Imho, one more that would be located just below the grass line, and you're good to go.

Something feels wrong with the trees :/

I spot 2 things:
1) you've got a very vertical pattern that goes down to the roots, but of course, near the roots, your tree gets wider. The pattern should follow that.
2) the roots at the bottom feature a set of blobs (sorry, can't find a better term) that suggest there should be root there, but you don't have the shadows that are typical from in-between-roots . You don't either have a tree-to-ground transition, making the ground near the tree unusually regular and geometric. Small pebbles would have been digged out, some different kind of grass would benefit of roots protection ... and that'd be the place in the woods where dead leaves stagnate the most, too.

That can fits him well. Make sure you've read Kirby Kid's post on functional blind spots then: your gameplay and power-ups is likely to be linked to their mastering.

Thanks PypeBros! Much better in my opinion.
