Bird (new game project)

on: July 31, 2007, 12:29:41 am
Okay, so after not really pixeling for a while, I started a new game called "Bird".
Decided that it had to have a nice, clean, simple style... (Else Ill just screw up :S)
SO here are some screens and the most used sprites.















Please give c&c ;)

P.S. demo is playable here
(only 9 stamps to collect)

Comments on the game: Well, the game seems to run smoothly, is simple, and yet challenging at the same time. i just think that sometimes going into the arrows to go to another room could be easier.

Comments on the art: while i like the simplicity, i think a small amount of shading would be good for the game. the animations are smooth, and it does look nice this simple, but it could look a little better with some shading.

fun game ^_^

Reminds me a lot of Kenneth's work. I think there needs to be more contrast in the sprites and some shadows on the rocks and grass. Perhaps try some highlights to the objects and chars you've got.

Update:
I made a shaded version with less contrasting background etc. as well.


It was also requested that you can play the game without installing...
(If you miss a plug-in, just download the installer)

Oh and I just noticed the rocks dont have shadows (on the ground) yet.

P.S. I dont like this version very much, so maybe im still going back to the previous version :(
I mean do you like this version?

It's cute. I'd like to see the shadows coded into the game. You wouldn't need so many repetitive sprites for something like moving the bird a pixel upward, nor repetitive shadows on sprites.

Update:

I went back to the non-shaded version (at least no shading on the characters and objects)
and I made a set of rare cards wich are actually puzzle pieces.



The pink and green characters are for the new levels.
