Truly horrifying boss, but the player ship is boring... how come you went with such a simple design with the player ship?


user
Mandrill (Level 8 Partner) @ 3/3/2016 14:52

@ Zarto

Quite a compliment! Thank you very, very much, man!

Cheers, buddy! Means a lot coming from you. :)

This is the most fucking awesome thing i've seen.

@ bobo

Hehe, thank you man! Really appreciate it.

It becomes a pile of ash sooner or later anyway, why bother?

Yeah, that's a pretty good Idea. Some greens here and there would certainly be a good way to make the pick ups stand out more.

I was hoping for a comment from you! Glad you do,  thanks a ton. :)

@ AirStyle

Should be more, it's a shmup after all ;)

Thanks, mate.

@ Mr_Hk_

That means a lot coming from you, buddy. Thanks a lot!

I didn't keep playability in mind, something I should add to my next mockup. :)

@ showtime

Glad you like it. Thank you very much.

What an interesting comparison! The movie was quite fucked up to be honest, however, a pretty interesting story.

@ Pix. Ed.

That's a great comment, thanks a lot. I'm glad to read that it looks different from other stuff and that you might be able to learn something from it.

I always strive to create distinctive looking pixels.:)


user
Mandrill (Level 8 Partner) @ 1/8/2016 09:38

@ Finlal

I would if it wasn't for the time issue. Thanks again.

Some really great ideas here and lovely pixeling.  Love the hud design.


user
king_bobston (Level 10 Capo) @ 12/29/2015 13:53

Very well done! Why do you hate the player ship so much through? It could use a little love, too

My favorite part are the bullets and how well they stand out

After that the enemies of course but I also really like your HUD and typo. The background is also nice for what it is.

I would have added a few of the more vibrant colors to the collectable to make it stand out more from the enemies, through.

Just the player ship..


user
Emperor_Pixel (Level 1 Rookie) @ 12/28/2015 21:06

Gosh I love these shmup mockups son.


user
AirStyle (Level 5 Assistant Manager) @ 12/28/2015 21:04

Whew, there's a lot going on here, but it's all amazing! Very nice work!


user
Mr_Hk_ (Level 5 Sniper) @ 12/28/2015 12:16

Uber cool mood and ultra readable palette !
Awesomeness made squares.

My only complain would be regarding the ship size and shape : It suggests a HUUUGE hitbox and a slow paced gameplay, which I hate as a manic shmup fan =)

 


user
showtime (Level 6 Made) @ 12/28/2015 11:24

This is amazing! Teach me your ways!

Fleshy spaceship reminds me of some stuff from eXistenZ.


user
Fusionnist (Level 9 Federal Agent) @ 12/28/2015 10:14

Awesomely frustrating that's not playable

Masterful use of color and light. Forms are smooth and organic. Pretty unique way of doing lighting effects with particles (at least I havent seen that elsewhere). Many unexpected ways of doing things that work suprisingly well. Pixeling at its finest. A piece to learn much from. Thanks for sharing.


user
Finlal (Level 11 Special Agent) @ 12/27/2015 15:28

I think you can find yourself a good programmer really fast with such graphics.


user

@ Cynips

Always a joy to read you comments, mate! Glad you like it, thanks a ton. :)

@ Mac 'n Cheese

Thank you very much, man! I'd love to see that I bet it would turn out fantastic.

Great, share it with us if you decide on doing it!


user
Mandrill (Level 8 Partner) @ 12/27/2015 12:44

@ Frous

Thanks a lot! It's supposed to be a focal point to help with the symmetry.  I explained my process with this tutorial, take a look.


user

@ Stava

Great you dig it, thanks! :)

@ Finlal

Thanks a ton, buddy! Just a mockup, I have got no idea how to code.


user
Mandrill (Level 8 Partner) @ 12/27/2015 12:37

@ feiss

Great you like it, man. Thank you.

Yeah, I kept the form and look of the ship pretty simple.

Thanks!

Thank you very much. :)

@ SnowOwl

Haha, thanks! I would, but I can't even code one single line.


user

@ hostile

I'm glad to hear that! Feel free to use them if you like :)

Thanks a bunch.

Wow! This is awesome! I love it!!


user
Macaroni and Cheese (Level 1 Private) @ 12/26/2015 23:07

The bullets and their effects are eye candy. I always wanted to make a top down space shooter game, but I got stuck on creating large backgrounds and programing AI. I'm not a great coder. Very cool piece dude. I want to do a large space background now.


user
Frous (Level 2 Flatfoot) @ 12/26/2015 15:25

@Mandrill this is really well done! what I see weird is that banding on top of the middle eye of the hive mother, also, wanted to ask you, how do you make your palletes?


user
Curth (Level 4 Lieutenant) @ 12/26/2015 15:15

This dark alien style would do the top down shooter genre an amazing favour. Amazing work.


user
Stava (Level 8 Rear Admiral) @ 12/26/2015 15:08

Wow amazing!


user
Finlal (Level 11 Special Agent) @ 12/26/2015 15:03

Holy hell, Mandrill!
Is it from a real thing or just a mockup?


user
feiss (Level 5 Detective) @ 12/26/2015 14:47

Amazing! I'm not very fond of the player's ship, but man that is one fabulous big boss.. Gorgeous job


user
sonicspin (Level 1 Intern) @ 12/26/2015 14:07

whoa! very good


user
neva (Level 2 Dealer) @ 12/26/2015 13:31

Amazing!


user
SnowOwl (Level 5 Detective) @ 12/26/2015 13:25

I'm throwing money at the screen for you to make it for real.
