I love the usage of the single red color!

DragonDePlatino (Level 5 Detective) @ 10/27/2014 09:02

Whoa, totally sick palette! Everything has such an otherworldly look to it!

JustinGameDesign (Level 8 Marshal) @ 5/17/2014 12:52

Looks amazing as is.

JerryPie (Level 11 Godfather) @ 6/18/2011 12:15

beautiful colors

showtime (Level 6 Made) @ 6/18/2011 08:52

it would be such a treat to play something that looks this good!

thinlikenate (Level 3 Private Eye) @ 3/6/2011 02:11

 this is the best shit ever. love the tiles

NobleValerian (Level 6 Manager) @ 12/31/2010 09:06

that's pretty sweet, I'd play it!

avo (Level 7 Mass Murderer) @ 7/28/2010 11:30

 cool graphics

Jabber (Level 3 Private Eye) @ 7/15/2010 17:30

 That's very pretty. The enemies are like a cross between Kirby and Mega Man.

Heavy Stylus (Level 1 Rookie) @ 7/15/2010 01:39

This really should be a game ;)

Argyle (Level 5 Assistant Manager) @ 4/22/2010 09:18

I always learn from looking at your tilesets.  They flow so well, thanks for sharing!

Robinhood (Level 9 Boss) @ 4/20/2010 14:39

Congrats on first!  That's 9/11 challenges that you've got 1st...

ooshmaster (Level 5 Soldier) @ 4/19/2010 16:25

congrats on first place!

tripnfelt (Level 5 Rokkyu) @ 4/18/2010 10:40

You made the colors suit your style so well.

Shiru (Level 6 SWAT) @ 4/16/2010 07:33

I've finally managed to see this, by 'save object as' on the link, and viewing in graphics editor. Very good.

Slemsvamp (Level 6 Serial Killer) @ 4/16/2010 06:39

I like the BG a lot!

Setzer (Level 8 Cannibal) @ 4/15/2010 05:38

You have a way with angles and edges, and I like it.

Shiru (Level 6 SWAT) @ 4/15/2010 02:10

The link does not work too. That's sad, because there is a lot of positive comments, and I've had to skip it when voted.

Delicious (Level 8 Regional Boss) @ 4/14/2010 23:53

Still getting it, darn. Maybe find a new imagehost? I really want to check this one out. =P

vierbit (Level 1 Rookie) @ 4/14/2010 05:52

Hm, as a few people mentioned they can´t see it, I added a link to the image. Hope that doesn´t violate the challenge rules?

myrkrig (Level 1 Rookie) @ 4/14/2010 04:32

this is shmup looks like awsome gameplay also

heyy13 (Level 3 Private Eye) @ 4/13/2010 23:50

Same as nothing, can't even see it in the challenge screen so it's a shame.

Delicious (Level 8 Regional Boss) @ 4/13/2010 20:52

I'm getting a big "X" on the page which is unfortunite since, atleast from what I'm hearing, this mockup is great.

iLKke (Level 9 Nidan) @ 4/13/2010 04:00

Standard vierbit game gfx, which is to say - excellent!

Only problems I see are products of the palette's limits, so well done.

Robinhood (Level 9 Boss) @ 4/12/2010 16:14

I'm not sure how it would work, but you could try dithering the red in the bg mines.

@ fawful - I get that feeling too.

vierbit (Level 1 Rookie) @ 4/12/2010 16:02

Thanks for the comments,
Yeah, I wasn´t sure about the red mines in the background either. But without them the background looked a bit too "monochrome" to me.
Thats true, but it was already 4:00 AM here. And I wanted to get at least a bit of sleep ;).

Randommonkies (Level 6 Manager) @ 4/12/2010 13:12

Awesome piece! looks almost ready for a PSP or iPhone.

olny crit- and it is minor- is that the pose of the hero could be a little more dynamic. I think that only catches my eye because everything else looks great!

Carnivac (Level 8 Shodan) @ 4/12/2010 11:46

jeebus  How do you do this kinda thing?   I love everything except the main player sprite (a lil too cutesy for me but that's just personal taste).  Truly amazing pixel work and use of the palette.

cure (Level 11 Godfather) @ 4/12/2010 07:53

love the background and the crab enemy.

Stickman (Level 6 SWAT) @ 4/12/2010 05:47

my oh my....O_O

Victor Rojo (Level 8 Cannibal) @ 4/12/2010 04:57

it seems like a real game, fav!

fawful (Level 6 Yonkyu) @ 4/12/2010 04:39

There goes my chances.

Epic work there,the background and enemys are done veeeery well.

Brokencode (Level 1 Rookie) @ 4/12/2010 04:31

i don't like pretty much some colours anyway the result is positive

onek (Level 6 Hitman) @ 4/12/2010 04:20

simply amazing! the palette/ red  is sooo well used! seems like another #1 in ur endless list ;D

kevink (Level 2 Flatfoot) @ 4/12/2010 03:07

I agree with tomF, but this is the best entry by far. 

TomF (Level 1 Rookie) @ 4/12/2010 02:19

good stuff as usual, the rocks are nice. i would totally ditch the red in the background mines though.

Shiru (Level 6 SWAT) @ 4/12/2010 01:19

Can't see the picture, so can't vote.

Satsume (Level 10 Capo) @ 4/12/2010 01:14

great mockup vierbit :3 

antymattar (Level 2 Kukyu) @ 4/11/2010 23:52

i can't see the image!

Zweckform (Level 1 Intern) @ 4/11/2010 23:14

Good one.  I like the environment much.  Nto so sure about the red on the mines though. All in all great mock up.

Dr D (Level 4 Shichikyu) @ 4/11/2010 22:43



Buddy90 (Level 5 Assistant Manager) @ 4/11/2010 22:18

i love it! especially good by using black as a differentiator of foreground and background!

The enemies also remind me of MegaMan X enemies for some reason :P

wenruto (Level 5 Killer Klown) @ 4/11/2010 21:23

 Man That's awesome Love The Rocks btw lol I aM Voting =)

jalonso (Level 11 Godfather) @ 4/11/2010 20:46

While creativity is always important, this week it seems to me its all about making the pallete work. You have certainly made it work here.

Metaru (Level 8 Brigadier General) @ 4/11/2010 20:02

so much yes

greenraven (Level 1 Gangster) @ 4/11/2010 19:58

You still have time. This challenge isn't over for another 5 or 6 hours.
