This level mock-up was made for homebrew 8-bit console game project, which was cancelled by some reasons. I'm actually more programmer than artist, and this picture was made to show project's artist how to draw tiled backgrounds (and also my skills).

16 colors, constructed from 315 8x8 tiles. Note that image is 3880 pixels wide, click to see whole image. Also note that it was made with limited number of tiles to fit into console video memory, because of this much of copy-paste was used and whole picture looks repetitive.

Really it is a starting point - you either make full scenery like in mentioned Megaman X, or slowly entering the level with all it's details, like in Tokkyu Shirei Solbrain. Also remember that it all was drawn with all platform's memory constraints in mind. As for me - I was astounded when Shiru sent me this pic some time ago, only things I don't like very much are designs of monorail train's cockpit and dithering on foreground cyllindrical building.

Background on the left looks very empty. Too empty for me.

The lack of balance makes me uneasy

yeah, that first level when zero saves your sorry ass.

this is pretty good, though i wouldn't mind a little more invention with the colors

It reminds me a lot of Megaman X for the SNES.

It was drawn with limited number of tiles to fit into console video memory. I'll add that note into description.

I like it, though you should make the cityscape in the bg a bit more unique, rather than just copy and paste.
