Thanks for de crits, Kon.

I made another, this time starring Terror Raven.



Played like Zelda.

I dunno what's wrong, but somewhere along the line, I must've screwed up with the vertical tilery because there's an extra 1px. line at the bottom.

Are the sprites more visible this time around?

I may start on a second one later.


I'll post the tiles once I extract each and every one.

Current WIP, though it's looking done now...


Tiles!


Nice wave work G Dragon.. the tile edge cutting into the bow isn't even a problem, looks nice. A bit busy, I'll review these all later! :)

Excellent entry, pep. I like how you used 8x8 tiles to break up grids and 16x16 to fake the 'japanese rpg' theme. Probably my favourite entry so far.

That is ace indeed, Pep. Crits would be:

- The mushroom tiles have a greyish background, why not green.
- The treetops look a bit strange, i think they are to small and to obviously mirrored. Maybe also to equally lit all over.
There are no ugly colours, only ugly combinations of colours.

Kind of busy lately but managed a small new one before my vacation was up.

Its a new area where the hero is stuck walking in place. Looks kind of Game Freak-ish (makers of Pokemon and Screw Breaker). The green lights on the ground were supposed to glow but I guess the animation was eaten.

Great looking work from everyone :)

excellent! Probably one of the best turnouts for a challenge ever in pixelationland. Hope part II of the excercise whatever it is, works just as well.
