 this is inspiring to me


James McCarter (Level 5 Lieutenant) @ 6/21/2010 02:11

 this is great.  The stylisation is nice, the choice of palette is nice, the character design is nice and the tiles are nice.  very, cool work.

Brod (Level 1 Jukyu) @ 7/5/2009 18:07

I... I... I can't begin to tell you how much I love this. I had to change my pants.. I hope that can sum it up.

RPG_Boy (Level 5 Captain) @ 6/5/2009 07:44

background on the top screen is awesome.

grats on the award, you deserve it

Flarfy (Level 5 Detective) @ 3/25/2009 05:45

I like this a lot. Great colors. Cool/cute style. Saw this at work... Can't wait to get home and try the demo :-)

Talon IceHawk (Level 1 Seaman) @ 3/17/2009 16:54

This is cute. I like the style.

sapphira83 (Level 4 Button Man) @ 3/17/2009 11:06

i can definitely see this on my sister's ds or my mobile phone. i love it

Vertigo-Zero (Level 9 Necrophiliac) @ 3/16/2009 06:39

up the contrast on the big demon please :P

schrumpfkopf (Level 4 Team Leader) @ 3/16/2009 05:52

strange mixture of ace and average.

TomF (Level 1 Rookie) @ 3/15/2009 10:25

Thanks for the feedback, I think a full character re-design will be in order soon. It'll pain me to have to do all his animations again but it'll be for the best, since I have plans for a full game I'd rather get him right sooner than later.

DJD (Level 4 Button Man) @ 3/15/2009 09:41

agree with preceding statements about main character, he doesn't have "character" in the same sense that bubbly video game characters should. Compare him to the most similar association, Gex. Gex had a personality that we normally wouldn't expect of an animal (suave and articulate) and looked unique in the sense that the normal Gecko design contrasted the idea of the tuxedo, creating something exciting and unexpected. In the main character you have a relatively static and uninspired design, which is lessened moreso by other regular baddies that are of equal or greater originality. Try adding more unique elements to the character to give him some pizazz. Also, you really should change the angle of him, all the other characters in both mockups are tilted somewhat, and the fact that you can see his back foot from a side on view just makes him seem like he's got a short leg. Honestly I would really consider a full redesign or another idea for the character to give it some strength, but since this is clearly already in the development stage that sort of rewrite would be inappropriate. Good luck though! You prove to possess originality and talent with all the other components of the piece.

TMH (Level 2 Dealer) @ 3/15/2009 08:37

i love everythin but the main character, i think the should be on more of an angle faceing us

Exquisious (Level 4 Lieutenant) @ 3/14/2009 15:17

This is waaaaaaaaaay cool.

jamon (Level 10 Operative) @ 3/14/2009 11:44

I just love your mockups - but for main character i agree with Wolverine

faved. ;)

Dex (Level 11 CEO) @ 3/14/2009 10:31

 I think the main character suffers from being less detailed than the other monsters. If you spruced him up a bit, it'd be even better! 

I really like the tiles though, but you already know you're good at them  =)

TomF (Level 1 Rookie) @ 3/14/2009 06:03

Darn seems people aren't liking the character too much, do you not like the character design? Or just the way he is pixeled. I'll have another go at him sometime.

shivudhamu - I made the game using Multimedia Fusion 2. I'd like to learn a proper language sometime but it'll take too long right now, MMF 2 allows for a speedy creation process.

.Anubis. (Level 3 Hatchet Man) @ 3/13/2009 21:05

 Amazing, character doesn't look as fun as everything else, but I'll check out the demo soon to see if he's much cooler than just his looks.

shivudhamu (Level 3 Hatchet Man) @ 3/13/2009 20:24

Aawesome............ I have some questions for you you designed the game graphics right?

OR did you design the game and did you worked on programming part as well........... Please do let me know. 

gumol (Level 1 Depressed) @ 3/13/2009 14:49

super frog meets jazz jackrabbit 2! :D
there's only one thing I can say: awesome! :]

asukicco (Level 9 Necrophiliac) @ 3/13/2009 13:36

Really amazing! Especially the second screen. Tiles are very smooth, not to mention that palette is brilliant! And everything is put togheter well by precise linearts and forms.

Kaiseto (Level 6 Made) @ 3/13/2009 10:39

Haha. I figured this was you when i saw it on the front page. Simply awesome. I just love your color choices.

vierbit (Level 1 Rookie) @ 3/13/2009 10:31

I love mockups!

But yeah, the main character is a bit bland compared to the rest.

AsimosVagan (Level 1 Depressed) @ 3/13/2009 09:58

 Amazing and cute graphics. Congratulations.

Dr D (Level 4 Shichikyu) @ 3/13/2009 03:29

Oh and please do finish the game, I will definitely play it. All the way to the end.

Carnivac (Level 8 Shodan) @ 3/13/2009 03:13

Most of it looks excellent and very professional but I find the player character to be quite mediocre and bland.  He just seems outdone by the quality of everything else.

PanicBomber (Level 6 Manager) @ 3/13/2009 02:48

very nice very nice!

TomF (Level 1 Rookie) @ 3/13/2009 01:35

Thanks for the comments guys. Dr D thank you for the kind words, I'm really glad you found the game fun. :)

Hapiel (Level 11 Admiral) @ 3/13/2009 01:26

Wonderful stuff, especially that demon!

Dr D (Level 4 Shichikyu) @ 3/13/2009 01:10

Well I can't just play this awesome game and not leave any comments.

It was a massive pile of FUN. I enjoyed finding all the secret areas while having my eye pleased with terrific pixel art candy. The colors are so great and subtle and pleasing to the eye, and the overall design of everything was pretty amazing.

A+ work!

SaiL-ing (Level 1 Rookie) @ 3/12/2009 20:51

very cute game XD

the graphic r beautiful :3

DJD (Level 4 Button Man) @ 3/12/2009 16:34

The excellent composition, especially in the bottom screen, is comparable to the best of kirby platform levels, and they've been working that formula for some time. Congratulations on incredibly effective pixeling!

HoofFoot (Level 8 Regional Boss) @ 3/12/2009 14:09

It's so lively and beautiful! I think I'm in love.

EyeGem (Level 3 Hatchikyu) @ 3/12/2009 13:20

Excellent! =)

Desprite it is 2D game art, there are still places to show more volume!

Badassbill (Level 10 Maniac) @ 3/12/2009 11:47

Bottom screen is utterly fantastic.

banane4joy (Level 5 Detective) @ 3/12/2009 10:58

Amazing work!

philipptr (Level 4 Team Leader) @ 3/12/2009 09:51

I'm not sure about the blues in the background of the upper screen, but the lower scene looks awesome. great work

Shiru (Level 6 SWAT) @ 3/12/2009 09:13

Looks very professional.

4tochkin (Level 1 Intern) @ 3/12/2009 08:57
