I'll collect lossless screenshots as the games are decided on; at the moment it'd be pointless.  Unless you meant the availability of crisp shots for games like Princess Crown, in which case yeah I was thinking about that.

I just threw the idea out there because I'd assumed that there'd be decent shots of it. Guess not. In which case, nevermind.
Pity, as the sprites are truly beautiful.

If you only want to do a CC about once a month, why don't we have multiple CC challenges for it?  One for tiles, animation, etc... or whatever.  That'd be sure to keep us occupied for the whole month.

I'm pretty sure that, like, 2 or 3 years ago we did Flashback and OOTW and it was one of the ones that started the whole commercial critique thing. I think I was the one who pushed Flashback, or maybe it was Helm. Anyway, I loved that game to death.

Nope. We did Flashback, but not Out of This World. I remember the critique on Flasbhack; nothing on Out of This World. I'm pretty sure.

I never beat that game.

Yoshi's Island
Blaster Master

backgrounds of YI, and some of the effects in blaster master would be quite interesting to analyze.

I am more interested in what I've posted in the "favorite pixelart thread"

Earth Worm Jim 1-2 -both background tiling and animation are superb

Boktai 1-2-the simple stroke aproach fits the perspective's intrinsical mood perfectly, while still allowing for a great level of aesthetic beauty, hueshifts are also handled beautifully-I already have some screenshot suitable for analysis.

Comix Zone- very well thought out aesthetic proposition used in gameplay's favor, beautifully achieved strong saturation hueshifts, also some very concise and frame effective animation.

Batman1-excellent use of primitive console resources.

I can provide fairly decent screenshots of the Saturn version of Earthworm Jim 2 (and possibly Princess Crown as well, if I ever decide to purchase it). They're a bit hard to obtain as Saturn emulation is basically shite.

Example:
