there is a stray red pixel under the outer bottom window frame, I noticed it immediately on zoom, and I agree with Ryumaru and am rather keen on the window breaking the roof

Ya, caught the red pixel the other day, just hadn't fixed it in the version with that window. Thanks :)

I really love those new trees. If you can technically afford that, just !go for it!   :D
and meanwhile;

I thought it would be much better to ensure those mountain-barriers actually look like a barrier and avoid breaking the line with a highlight.

I also have the feeling that going with grass up to the barrier provides a more natural result than the current grass-to-dirt-to-barrier double transition.

(did I mentioned those little grass blades are über-lovely, btw?)

only just noticed how much of a perceptual mind f#@k those cliffs are over on the right, easy solution


love the new additions and tiles, and the more I stare the more I see the trees looks like this to me


I remember the trees were more top down in the original zelda titles, and the rendering looks good but you are definitely moving away from GBC aesthetics with 6 colours per tile on them.

*I think the problem I am finding with the tree is that the higher shading of the foliage implies a different angle than may be intended, but it might just be me, here is a rough edit of what I think looks more natural in the relative perspective to the rest of the tiles:


and the roots a bit

I'm not seeing 6 colors per tile, as far as I know I stuck to the 4 colors per tile restriction?

Tiles are 8x8. I'm simply clustering them in a 2x2 format(16x16) to make it easier to make levels and eventually makes for much simpler tile detection when it comes to coding.

ohhh okay, that makes sense, one thing though is it makes the more 8x8 colour centric tiles like the trees look slightly juxtaposition'd, and that'd afford you this level of subtly


all existing colours bar 1 darker purple tone

*shadow was too subtle

* chest suggestion

with 4 colors per 8x8 pixels, another minor thing you could afford to do if you wanted was have more light hit the top of the treasure chest, something like
