Have always wanted to make a game like this - combining stealth, action, and customizable android ninja. So here is a screenshot in loving homage to the glory days of arcade games, and to their 32-color amiga ports!

very action packed!

Thanks for the critique Jok - your work is inspiring.I need to level up in anatomy for sure, that is still a bit of a struggle for me. Glad you like everything else!

I don't like pose of my character (anatomy issues) - but except of that - it's brilliant.

Everythig looks great, colors, effects, light (explosion!) There is also nice contrast between foreground and background. All small details adding a lot but it's not overloaded.

Love all the action going on! The fire/smoke is especially nice.

Gravista (Level 2 Flatfoot) @ 2/8/2021 00:26

Thanks for the kind comments! @b236 - me too! I would play it til blue in the face! @Theoden - yes that is the era I was inspired by for sure... games like Strider, Turrican, Super Metroid, and also some arcade shooters like Gunforce, Xain and Surprise Attack...

Thanks @CELS - I'm sure it would be possible nowadays! I think the graphics would have to be computed behind the scenes in RGB to achieve those transparency and interactive light effects, and then fit within a 32-color palette in realtime...

Gravista (Level 2 Flatfoot) @ 2/8/2021 00:18

Thanks @Christoballs! Glad you like the background. The palette heavily favors the greyish purple gradient, so I'd have enough gradations to create that rainy/foggy distance...

I love how gritty and detailed this looks, despite the relatively simple designs. I wonder if it would even be possible to make a game like this.

Really cool, I like the rough look and rain effect.

b236 (Level 11 Bonsai) @ 2/7/2021 14:20

10/10 would buy for sure!

Theoden (Level 10 Operative) @ 2/7/2021 14:16

Very cool mockup. Reminds me of Flashback for DOS.

Christoballs (Level 7 Neanderthal) @ 2/7/2021 03:33

Looks really nice, and the mood is well set. Love the background and tileset work. Looks like it could be a screenshot!
