Gameplay Video

"Kung Fu Killforce is an arcade beat-em-up with super tight controls and fast, unrelenting action. Achieve the highest scores by chaining dozens, even hundreds of kills together into ridiculous combos! Your kung fu will be tested, though, once enemies, powerups, body parts, and tons of blood start flying at you from all angles!"

 It seems weird to me that the roofs shingles are the same size as the recede into the distance.

 I believe theres a staircase in the middle but it could still use 1px fade line.

 @TheInquisitor: Yeah the characters were done by another artist for the old version of the game. The developer may or may not let me completely revamp them. We'll just have to see. Thanks for the critique! =]

TheInquisitor (Level 4 Shichikyu) @ 3/5/2013 15:44

I firmly agree with the sentiments about the characters compared to the backgrounds. I can only assume that either another artist did the characters or if it's not finished then you've not got around to polish them?

The backgrounds are excellent, but on this one is there some reason why there's such a hard edge transition from road to sky? It looks a little jarring, especially as it starts to go shady just at the point where it connects with the blue.

 @slym: haha I was kind of assuming that : ) Just making sure though. I really like everything about your background pieces, I'll be sure to study them to improve my own art : )

reis (Level 6 Serial Killer) @ 3/4/2013 17:33

You're the best.

 @DragonMarx: The game uses parallax and so only the clouds in the middle will be seen by the player. No point in wasting my client's money making cloud variations! =]

DragonMarx (Level 3 Corporate Drone) @ 3/4/2013 13:31

 try editing the clouds a little bit instead of just using copy/paste. It's not much mork if you just tweak them in small ways.

 among all I've seen '' but its still awesome, the road in the middle could get a little blue in the horizon, it just got cutt off.

 Philippe: This would be the first time you've seen it... =P

philippejugnet (Level 6 Hitman) @ 3/3/2013 17:08

 this is the one I disliked the most :S

Nyno (Level 3 Hatchet Man) @ 3/3/2013 14:49

This is amazing! The multiple layers of buildings and trees really bring this together as a holistic background. One of the best I've seen.

good job.

Motrox (Level 3 Private Eye) @ 3/3/2013 11:39

 Nice job slym

BlazingBlyde (Level 3 Hatchet Man) @ 3/3/2013 11:19

I do agree - there seems to be a huge disparity between background art and character art. Congratulations on the work though, it's amazing.

Benjiro (Level 8 Shodan) @ 3/3/2013 11:18

wtf? o_o the backgrounds are awesome but the character in the game are... .____.


CraftyPixel (Level 1 Rookie) @ 3/3/2013 10:42
