Hope the C64 gang dont throttle me here. Using a mixture of wide and single pixels. The backgrounds and cars are Iso wide pixels, while the smaller characters are 16 x 16 single pixel sprites, with the bigger sprite at 32 x 32. All special effects (shadows, smoke, sparkles etc:) are single pixels.

Edit: I've been assured by knowledgable C64 users that this mix is possible on a real C64.

If you are combining a multicolour background with hi-res sprites (overlaid) then there is no problem with this, damn it's good...

By seeing this image I am dreaming of stepping inside this world as if it's a videogame. The idea of combining wide and single pixels is also inspiring. I really like this piece.

 I know it is and I know that was intentional. I just fell like that's cheating. I seriously think that it is against the law to make something so good! 


user

very snmoth animation this is awesome 


user
Stickman (Level 6 SWAT) @ 10/28/2010 14:49

@antymattar: I don't really understand your comment about what I failed at if you already know it was intentional. As for the secondary challenge - that wasn't my concern. If it was, then I would of gone for all wide pixels. Also drawing everything normally wouldn't make any sense as the purpose was to have wide pixel backgrounds and cars, with single pixel characters and effects. The challenge states clearly that it is about using the C64 colours and not a challenge about C64 restrictions.

Also, according to members such as Helm, ptoing and carrion who have knowledge on C64 colours and restrictions, this mix of pixels is possible on a real C64. You can see their comments below.


user
antymattar (Level 2 Kukyu) @ 10/28/2010 10:49

I know that is on purpose but I must say FAIL. because you used regular pixel as well as elongated pixels. You might as well draw everything normally and ad a wide-pixel somewhere to prove that you didn't completely neglect the secondary challenge but still wanted to enter it. Overall This is still an amazing piece of work.
