Rushed to finish this (it's 2:47 here, super tired but that's what you get for procrastinating). Press left or right to switch options, (bag, magic, attack, defend, run). Lots of messy stuff here, and the gold stuff on the left and right of the screen is horribly done and almost cheap looking, but at least there is a mech :P. 

(really tired so this may not make sense) 

Note: The pj checker says 30 colours, however it is counting 5 colours that do not appear in the image I've tested it, and for example #ffffff never appears in this piece, so I do not know what is going on with that or if I am doing something wrong or if I'm just failing to realize something stupidly obvious :L

EDIT: The colour problem is gone now :)

Well done, I love mecha bosses! 

The HUD don't seems bad. :D

Pixelart_kid (Level 6 SWAT) @ 6/23/2014 09:37

Nice Work my fav!!! ever

skittle (Level 9 Nidan) @ 6/23/2014 09:28

Thanks man! I'm glad you like the palette, probably one of the better elements in the piece :P

skittle (Level 9 Nidan) @ 6/23/2014 09:27

You totally should! You have a great style, I would love to see some more stuff by you! 

skittle (Level 9 Nidan) @ 6/23/2014 09:26

I actually took a few looks at the Terrignima last boss (which is mind-blowngily awesome), which is where I got the idea to do wings (which I didn't end up doing in the end :P). Thank you! 

skittle (Level 9 Nidan) @ 6/23/2014 09:25

Yeah, I was also really wanting to do wings but not matter what I did they would always look weird or out of place when I got to detail D:

Thanks a lot man! 

skittle (Level 9 Nidan) @ 6/23/2014 09:24

Funny that you mention the right shoulder, another person told me the same thing, I really should have fixed that when I still had time. I see exactly what you mean about the filigree, I would have liked to use different colours (more goldish ones) but I was already reaching my max colour count D:. I was actually thinking about going for a rock ui instead of a gold one but I was thinking that making the colours look rock-ish might have blended too much into the background. Thanks a lot for the insight! 

skittle (Level 9 Nidan) @ 6/23/2014 09:21

That's really weird, I probably made a mistake when trying to look for the other colours. I got told that saving a file as .png24 makes the colour count go higher, so I think that is what caused the problem (so I'm going to be saving it as a gif or png8 from now on). Thanks for taking the time to delete the extra colours! I'll update it right now.

Mandrill (Level 9 T-rex) @ 6/23/2014 08:27

The great layout really helps focusing on the important segments of the design. Colours are cool too! The warm/cold counters work pretty damn well together.

Very stylish piece! Liking it a lot. :)

DatMuffinMan (Level 4 Mercenary) @ 6/23/2014 06:38

Damn you're improving quickly. Makes me want to pixel more! 

Marina (Level 9 Necrophiliac) @ 6/23/2014 02:49

This is absolutely my favorite in this challenge. Make me think a lof on the final boss from my favorite A-RPG games.. Terranigma and Illusion of Gaia.

Very well done.

felchqueen (Level 6 SWAT) @ 6/23/2014 01:37

Wow, snuck that one in at the last minute, nice colours and really captured the 'end of game RPG boss' feel. I preferred the size of the wings that you posted in the forum, but you got my vote!

7heSama (Level 2 Flatfoot) @ 6/23/2014 01:05

It turned out really good, mate, dunno why you were worried ;P I like it a lot. The background kinda merges with his left (our right) shoulder. I also feel like the fantasy UI/hero kinda clashes with the boss, who looks like a robot, but it's been done. The filigree is so bright, it kinda draws too much attention imo.

Not my favorite of the entries, but it got a vote.

tyrant (Level 2 Petty Officer) @ 6/23/2014 01:02

Oh man, I really like this piece, but Photoshop agrees with the PJ Checker.  #ffbe84 and #f49160 show up on the hero's hand and #ffbb29 is on the directional arrows next to the sword icon.  I couldn't really find the #2a0510 or #ffffff, but they could be a single pixel each...

It's a simple oversight, and I'd hate to see your work disqualified on a technicality like that.  I don't know if you have Photoshop, but the custom gif palette tool in the 'save for web' window is really helpful for finding and editing out single pixel anomalies like that.  I've deleted the extra 5 colors using PS here:
