by the moment, i've added a soft-fx that 'reflects' the background to make a water-reflection effect. do you think it works?
This way waters and mountains seem to lie on the same plane (which would make reflections impossible), whereas they lie on perpendicular planes. To fix this, during the rendering of waters, just skip a line every other so that the waters occupy 1/3rd of the screen and the mountains 2/3rds - by the way, this also fixes the unusual effect that waters - a horizontal surface - occupy more space than the frontal background.
The progressively disappering sinusoidal waves effect looks  fine :) - edit: on second thought: now that I look closer at the picture, it does not seem that progressive, but rather a 2-step process... is it so? mmm... it looks weird... I'd go for a continuously decreasing amplitude.

what do you think?
The blue one for me, because of the better contrast with the foreground.

The green one is the one where you did the best job at picking the good color ramp, but i admit the blue one will read better (green one still "jumps" at my eyes, and green is the color we see the best, iirc).

Maybe try to re-work the color ramp for the blue one, e.g. going from blue to de-saturated dark blue (rather than your current purple-blue-green ramp that doesn't correctly change the luminosity.

tnx a lot 4 all :)
i was busy fixing bugs on the engine, but i'll follow your advices to make this go well.
by the way i'm short of time cause i'm doing more than one project (one of them with US people in the well known BYOND'd DBO2. ^^ so i'm a bit stressed right now.

little edit of the brick tiles (i dont know if it went better but i like that 'dead' style for such a game like this one:
1 . do they look over-contrasted or they give the right effect that they are ruins? what do you think?
2. which laser beam is better at first zoom? im going to rotate that colors to give the doors a cool effect.

Your bricks aren't even close to tile.
Half bricks and duplicated bricks that are stacked on each other kills the look.
Also the darker bricks that you put in there makes symmetrical patterns.
Try making them look more random .

looks like you've come a bit... rocket physics seem very strange. like you shoot into the ground (without actually pointing the rocket launcher into the ground) and then 1 second after you can jump 4 times the height you could before.
Also the climbing animation seems out of place. The ladder is blended into the background so you can't actually see anything.
I'm guessing you didn't make everything since you don't even know the commands the console can handle.

but yeah, you're palette seems to need some work in order to make sure everything is visible.
