Second floor (maybe - I still work on this) and ladder


Two teams - Black and Red (wip).


Swordsman: shield and sword


Spearman: just spear, without shield and this head (because this head for Minotaur, guy with bull mask, no other armor).


Ladderman: spear guy only his spear is also a ladder

These are looking really cool.
I didn't know what second floor was without the label so you probably need to change the lighting on the wall and increase the highlight where the wall meets the floor.
A few structural details would also help to tell what is going on.

I don't know if you care about the nes restrictions but I think its something like 4 colors per 8x8 tile(including transparent color), otherwise looks cool though, I really like the hud, it reminds me of old ultima games for some reason.

Thanx for advice, I'll try it!

Didn't adhere to the NES canons because 3-4 colors on sprite is not enough for me, but I tried it:



It's 14x14 px, so I'm not sure about the nes restrictions :c



Update with Musashi (master swordman guy with katana) and some new tiles:



still wip  :D

Progress of work:



I can't be defined with this green because don't like it. Which green you like more?

And here is the current probleme, the horse:



It's not look like horse now and I have no idea how to change it. Tried to make legs a bit longer, but it didn't help:

I'm undecided on the green, both look pretty good but not perfect to me. As for the horse, there is only so much you can do with the space given. I think it looks nice right now, especially zoomed up a bit. I think this is a time where you have to see the sprite in motion, and the player seeing the same sprite in profile will allow them to better read the horse when they see it from the front.

A couple of horse anatomy notes:

A horse's eyes are positioned to their sides and their brow ridge is hardly there. (common mistake that results in a lot of dog-like horses)

They have a ton of mass in their core, so I repositioned the legs to be closer together to better convey this.

Removed a couple of pixels on their hooves to make the legs appear less stiff



Though, there is another problem of the size of the head. Making it shorter would make it look less out of place at this scale, but it starts being harder to read as a horse.
