Vanilla tiramisu. (Level 1 Gangster) @ 6/26/2011 16:02

Very nice ;D

LuckyF (Level 3 Hatchet Man) @ 7/15/2010 23:39

 And the 1-st in contest is 5-th in month. I don't get it either )

Buddy90 (Level 5 Assistant Manager) @ 7/15/2010 17:31

so wait, you win 2nd place in contest but 3rd for the month, and the 3rd placer in contest wins 2nd for the month?

That makes alot of sense.

Webus (Level 3 Stalker) @ 7/2/2010 12:36

Very nice piece!

PS: The light of the torches isn't very convincing.

 Clever interpretation of the challenge, and nice artwork. Probably the only challenge entry I knew I'd vote for.

mambazo (Level 5 Rokkyu) @ 6/19/2010 18:55

This is instant win for me :) Superb!

jalonso (Level 11 Godfather) @ 6/19/2010 17:42

Great, great piece! I actually find the flames OK as the wall sub-pixelling makes up for everything. 8/10

Adarias (Level 11 Special Agent) @ 6/19/2010 15:26

Ah, finally a piece worth using my 9th star for.  It's been a few weeks since the promotion and I was worried all that work was going to turn out to be useless!

Kidding aside excellently done, it has really fluid animation but keeps some of the "this action...then that" charm of the old games.  Background is a bit monochromatic for my taste but its true to the source I guess.

carnivac - i think the whole point of the game was planning out your moves in advance.  its not everyone's style, but I don't think that the games failed in what they set out to do, nor could I really agree that they left gameplay in the corner.  i think this is an issue of audience taste, not developer efforts.

Carnivac (Level 8 Shodan) @ 6/19/2010 14:42

why what?  why did i hate the games? cos they seemed to be more about showing off at the time impressive animation than having good responsive controls and gameplay. Got sick of having to plan out my moves in advance. Just found it too frustrating and tedious.

zero57 (Level 1 Depressed) @ 6/19/2010 14:15

Smooth animation, I love it!

Skull (Level 11 CEO) @ 6/19/2010 14:07

This is truely superb. Plus, I love the old school flames.

ellie-is (Level 8 Cannibal) @ 6/19/2010 13:54

 We have a winner.

Zolaris (Level 6 Hitman) @ 6/19/2010 13:40

everything with classic prince of persia its ok!

lander (Level 4 Deputy) @ 6/19/2010 13:21

Просто нет слов... 

Vertigo-Zero (Level 9 Necrophiliac) @ 6/19/2010 13:12

Without reading the title, it immediatly reminded me of the very first PoP :D

Manjaman (Level 7 Mass Murderer) @ 6/19/2010 13:07

Gosh that's some brilliant pixel art !

I really dig the bg, but the character design is not that good, although the animation is very smooth.

DeProgrammer (Level 7 Underboss) @ 6/19/2010 12:49

Well done. It's not often I give such a high rating to a piece. Sure, the flames may be a little wanting, but the overall realism with the really smooth animation really makes this piece stand out to me.

skamocore (Level 11 CEO) @ 6/19/2010 12:37

Yes, you can change whatever you want, as long as it is before the challenge ends. So basically you have a day and a half before your sand runs out :P

LuckyF (Level 3 Hatchet Man) @ 6/19/2010 12:32

 Good points there skamocore. But I worked on it for two days now and too tired to change anything. )) And also is it alowed to change the entry once it's posted ? Can I go back and make small tweaks and change the entry before clock runs out? 

 And about different versions. I think I made a mix between original PC version and sega genesis version. That's the ones I played this week )

skamocore (Level 11 CEO) @ 6/19/2010 12:20

I just had a look at the original graphics and I have to say this looks a lot better than any version.

My only gripes are the flatness of the flames - you have some colours in the prince's sprite that you could use on the flames. Also the ditheriness of the bricks in the middle, things just look a bit too grainy there, maybe you could add a few extra pixels around there or change the background colour to something lighter than pure black.

elend (Level 1 Rookie) @ 6/19/2010 12:18

Gorgeous. Well pixeled and great idea as well.

Blueberry_pie (Level 7 General Manager) @ 6/19/2010 12:11

Doesn't look constrained by the canvas at all. Very nicely done.

LuckyF (Level 3 Hatchet Man) @ 6/19/2010 12:10

 2Carnivac: Why?

2All: Thank you )

Peeter (Level 4 Button Man) @ 6/19/2010 12:03

Excellent use of the canavas and awesome graphics. Also I love the game. 

Hiuru (Level 5 Killer Klown) @ 6/19/2010 12:02

 HOLY MOLLY! that is amazing! Now I'm gona have a hard time choosing! 

Stickman (Level 6 SWAT) @ 6/19/2010 11:59

That is really REALLY cool!

Carnivac (Level 8 Shodan) @ 6/19/2010 11:47

Always hated 'playing' the old Prince of Persia games but this is very well done and a creative use of the tetris piece. nice work

wenruto (Level 5 Killer Klown) @ 6/19/2010 11:42
