Whatup guys. I did some bit of update. Added a new character and added some more power moves. New bg. Here's the update.

 

 Hehe I turned Wiggles into a powerhead in this battle.

 

 Bboy Red does his footwork after the toprock.

 

 Bboy Red finishes off with a Head Hollow, but only got him a bit better than Wiggles. Time ran out and Wiggle won.

like the concept, but you seem to just be adding more stuff not listening to peoples critiques and repeating mistakes they have pointed out. the last 3 screens especially, inconsistency in bboy red's legs as in the top they are not outlined, doing footwork theres a black outline and the legs seem like twice as fat and arms twice as long. Same with wiggles' head spin, his legs seem nearly twice as long.

from a bboying point of view id say make the head hollow leaning over more, cause right now just looks like a headstand.

My suggestion would be to revise the original sprites using people in this threads critiques, before continuing on new characters etc.

Thanks everyone. My crew kinda cancelled the project awhile ago. Bboy.org had a lot of artists there who do stuff in computer related. CGing, programming, Graffiti CG, etc. Probably because we didn't have enough programmers. This stuff was more of a WIP stuff or just a sketch work. I'm thinking of making the game in iso view in the future so the player can see what the character is doing easier. Like doing a six step, toprock, airflare, mills, etc.

 

 This guy's just bustin a toprock before he does his routines. It's what all bboys do before they get into their dirty stuff. I had reupdated the sprites bigger that time so it fits more of a fighting game feel.

Pretty sure that you'd know, but Sony just laid down two B-boy games (one for the PS2, one for the PSP). It's a tough concept to make work, because it's so rhythm-based (and yet, supposedly "freestyle"). That said, I much prefer your old-school look to what Sony did with its game. This last edit is a marked improvement in style to your earlier posts. Keep going. Even if you don't make the game, creating the sprites and characters could be a lot of fun.

Hi, so what happens in the game, I have to admit I haven't played a dancing game yet, (mind you some fighting games have good coreography!). So when you're up, do you press buttons on beat to do a whole move or what. I mean some moves might take a few beats to do?
As for the images, in my opinion, I prefer the original look closer to 8bit, but the newer one could end up like Final Fight or something, that'd be cool
