Shantae on DSi

Never thought i could find something i dont like about Henk's work but i think i find in this one.
I think there's more AA than it needs in the rocks on the ground tiles.It looks blurry in my opinion.

What you guys think?
(sorry if i shouldn't make criticism in this topic)

I'm sure that image has been downscaled with filtering.
You can see colour blending between elements of different layers.

That image is downscaled, so it looks softer than it is. Full-size from his website.
In any case, I'm not sure that image belongs here - as far as I can tell, that area exists only as a mock-up and isn't in any of the games.

Game: Batman: Return of the Joker (action platformer)
Release Year: 1991
Platform: Nintendo Entertainment System (NES)
Developer: Sunsoft












Beautiful backgrounds throughout the whole game, using every trick in the book from animated backgrounds to pseudo parallax with skillfully crafted tiles in a tightly restricted console.

Although it looks more like a Contra-like or Shatterhand high-tech action setting with a Batman theme slapped onto it.

A tileset I did for a shoot'em-up back in 2001 called "Rombobombo" (java based in-browser game). I don't got any fancy screenshots to provide I am afraid since I don't have the final version of the game : - )
This stage inspired by the Amiga game "Hybris" :

I do wanna post a few retro titles in the future but my first choice would be Moonlighter. The game itself is amazing and the style is, imo, fantastic <3

Game: Moonlighter
Art looks decent, but it's hard to tell through the upscaling (looks like about 125% upscale, with Lanczos probably since there are sharpening artefacts). Are there any unscaled screenshots available?
If you insist on being pessimistic about your own abilities, consider also being pessimistic about the accuracy of that pessimistic judgement.
