cleaning up my harddisk - well, for the weekly challenge initially,
but got stuck on this pixelation thingy..

originally planned to enter mockup frenzy #2: 'gameboy demakes'
over at pixelation with this one.. didn't succeed. no time.
until xmas.

non-'point'n click' (thus action-)version of monkey island for
nintendo gameboy - lucasfilm did this with indiana jones'
last crusade + the fate of atlantis for amiga and pc back in
the early 90s..

title-screen and insults-swordfight.. 2 more screens (jump'n run catacomb-level and sokoban-like level inside the ship) still in 'real soon now'-status

(also entered the pixel-competition at the tum demoparty
 as 'the blonde girl's name is guybrush'. 3rd place. damn =)

reference: well, guess!

tools: grafx2

I'm really impressed by how such amazing things can be made with 4 colours. I'm going to have to make one of these.

Prolly you are right. At least the sprite is getting lost on the BG.

user
tomic (Level 11 Admiral) @ 1/4/2008 05:20

@gas: yepp, i know about the ghosty look issue.. the low contrast is due to gameboy's 3 color-limit for sprites (replacing the dark grey pixels by black ones wouldn't work on that background)

awesome! Did you totally remake the origional or did you just cropped and traced it?

'Tis good-looking, but I can't tell what those things in the background of the 2nd half are supposed to be.

Donkey Kong Island?

Really nicely done.

Classic Monkey Island like conversation.. :p
Awesome work - this just looks superb!

Looks great. One thing that disturbs is that selfish pirate guy. He looks like ghost comparing to his opponent. If he doesn't suppose to be the ghost some dark pixels for contrast is a must in my opinion.
