wait, that link animation isn't a whole edit of the boktai sprite, is it? Fangame is a minus but perhaps bearable, but once you enter into the realm of edited sprites, especially considering your ability, it's just unacceptable.

fan games is what got me into pixeling in the first place, I started this game a long time ago and have made a lot of the overworld, dungeons and sprites, so I know its a tad pathetic but I still want to complete it

and Im not sure what you mean "a whole edit of the boktai sprite" ???

I mean are you basically editing the boktai sprite instead of making your own?

well, i guess so, i started this project a long time ago and it wasnt really meant to show off my graphic abilities, most of the game uses lttp graphics with a few enhancements anyways... not that impressive, I just wanted to make a zelda game with a good story and nice gameplay.

edit-
glad I didnt make a topic about this XD

picked up the new EDGE magazine today and found the url to this site http://www.nesreproductions.com/
how cool is this :D

not in the sense that you can copy commercial roms onto the cartridges, but in the sense that you can make homebrew stuff and actually play it on the console.
i've always wanted to make a NES platformer, i think i need to find me a coder, who wants to do a small project.

TakaM :
cool mockup btw ;)

Interesting layering you got going on in that pic, takaM. You should check out the boktai pics Camus(conceit) posted in one of the pixel art threads in this section. They do interesting stuff with fog.

Anyone feel like recommending some good but unusal games for the NES? I almost only play NES (and some SNES) games on my computer but im tired of all the usual games and i desperetly need a new one! :)

I can go ahead and recommend Bionic Commando, awsome platform game! You can't jump so instead you need to use a grappling hook (bionic arm) to get around the levels. The only downside is that the bosses sucks and the game is a bit too easy once you get alot of hitpoints and the rocket launcher. I also think they could have done a better job with balancing the weapons and items since the rocket launcher and medicine is by far the best combination.

Im thinking of doing a remake with alot more levels with some better level design so you really need to get skilled with the bionic arm, some rpg-elements, larger variety of items and weapons. Now that would be the best game ever  ;D

Turned 16 yesterday. Yay. I'm older than I've ever been.

And now I'm even older.
