WIP for Peculiar Penguins.

Need a few more tiles for variation and a few extra sprites to liven up then finish making the conversation. Also the shark needs to be swimming around.

Wow, a metasprite made of 8x8 regular 8x8 sprites.
This isn't the whole image, obviously. I want to make an animated mock up, and I've decided to do it piece by piece.
The raster rules feel a bit confusing though (in other words, I dunno how they work exactly) and a bit restrictive for my idea too, so I'm going with some of the other rules instead.

Some tiles for Little Hiawatha. Current issue is getting him to read well even on top of the sand tiles, but I can't fit it into the 8x16 sprite size :(

Just being a nerd here...
 DMM, yours would follow the specs if it had the MMC5 chip built into the cartridge.. otherwise it would have to be one palette set for every 16x16 pixels to follow the base NES specs. That looks great though and you caould easily claim the cartridge has that chip in it to free up the palette sets for every 8x8 tile (see here: [Kasumi's posts] http://wayofthepixel.net/index.php?topic=10784.0 ) Since it's early on in the tiling process it would be easy to keep in mind and change the couple segments that share two palette sets if you wanted.
 
 And Ultimaodin same; at least in the portraits... but really, no need; just ref that expansion chip I guess. Or maybe replace the dark charcoal grey with that purple... ah anyway no need really (I'd have to thoroughly look over it with the grid to make sure and I have to head out for work now). And really no need!

Looking good either way, and I like that animation Eggy.

Heh, thanks |||| :D
After a bit of thinking and using Google... I think I'll go with the raster rules after all. Make that all of the NES restrictions, actually. And the sprite I've made is made of 64 8x8 sprites so...

Note: There is HUD, but for spoiler reasons it's not displayed. ;)

Looks okay, but also looks somewhat broken, like it's not meant to look like that. Are they finished?

@|||| - Oh no T_T

I totally forgot the max number of sprite pallets I was just so focused on 3 colours and one base/background colour.

Three Little Wolves

Here is my unfinished "Silly Symphony" mock-up. My timing could not have been worse. I discovered the contest late Thursday evening, worked a bit on it Friday and was left with some family/friend issues over the weekend, so no work done and deadline missed. It's a shame because I love restriction challenges and NES has some of the most interesting restrictions.

My inspiration for this piece was taken from some early model sheets and then modified slightly to give a late life NES feel. So it features, sprite overlays and some more spirited tiling rather than something more uniform. The game would be a in the same vein as the Disney-Capcom games from the NES library but with a Lost Viking feel to the  individual attributes of the Three Wolves. The bone flute works like a homeward bone from Dark Souls and sends you back to the start of the level but Health and Items are then replenished. Each pig that is killed is then harvested and and added to the cuts that will be fed to the gangs leader Big Bad. When switching between Wolves the other idle wolves seek refuge behind trees to dodge bullets and the Pig's elaborate 'Wolf Pacifier'.

Wolf 1 Launches apples from his sling shot (stun)

Wolf 2 Uses a butcher to collect prime cuts (Kill)

Wolf 3 Collects various items and apples to be served with pig or to be launched from cannons or Wolf 1 slingshot.

The background is all but missing, including some trees and nice filler pieces from this mock-up. Due to that...I feels pretty uneven. Didn't even finish a piggy sprite :( So wrote it off. Anyone is welcome to any of the tile assets in this mock-up.
