72 hour entry :: "Retro Racers"

on: July 17, 2006, 06:22:46 pm
alright the compo is over and i can get back to work on my KOS sprite.  -but i thought i should post about my compo entry here since there is a bunch of pixel art in it and i think you guys would enjoy it.  C+C is nice if you want, but keep in mind that i wont be updating this and your critique will be used only as future reference.

Let me know what you think

EDIT:  Just so you guys know, hand-pixeling a 16 directional isometric craft is a PAIN! dont EVER do it!

It doesn't work for me. Do I need some kind of special software?

For me works perfectly.

Jajajaj is very Funny  ;D and the gfx are good.

Is a little complicated, but i think with more practice, th control will be better.

Good work.

no need for special software - but it could be that your graphics card can't open a fullscreen 400 by 300 res

I think i have the same problem as Ro83rt, which is a shame. But it looks pretty neat from the screenshots and lil animation.

so yeah - if you go ahead and download this game on a computer with a slightly older graphics card - it should run fine.  I'll see if i can make a version that runs on 800 by 600 for you guys (with everything zoomed x2 so it looks like 400 by 300).  Untill then, try downloading on another computer

Worked fine for me, I am using Radeon X800. Nice game by the way, probably the best isometric racing game I have played. :P

 Impressive! Looks like a good game. I'll bookmark it until it comes out. The straight lines of the cars are kinda jaggy. You might wanna work on those. Anyways, good shading and detailing. Keep it up.
