This is a screenshot of a game I'm currently working on. As the game was initially designed for GBA each layer is only 16 colors, and there is 3 of them.. and a bunch of 16-color sprites... The tileset itself is pretty much a work in progress, and is still in need of all kinds of fluff that makes games unique.

Sidescroller. :D HAHA.

avo (Level 8 Cannibal) @ 7/13/2010 11:04

beautiful background 

skarmachild (Level 1 Thug) @ 7/7/2010 03:47

that is some gorgeous artwork! amazing shading - you have incredible skills

snowk (Level 7 Mass Murderer) @ 2/18/2010 19:56

@varuks you really don't have anything nice to say do you? Iv'e been looking around the comments and you really should try to be more positive in all your comments. you point out all the flaws in everything witch is ok  but you never say antthing good! and frankly, try to improve yourself before critisizing others. no offence to you i would just apperceate it if you tried this. :)

awesome stuff DarkfalzX !!!

varuks (Level 1 Rookie) @ 2/2/2010 03:17

the charecter stands wrong. it gives the efect that she, either wants sex or has bean raped

joe75 (Level 1 Rookie) @ 12/4/2009 07:58

OK graphics and sprite, very rich layering .. blue part, that reminds me .. FF6 forest level ..



d-p (Level 11 Psychopath) @ 9/16/2009 13:15

Ah I love the background ...

Nekto (Level 1 Rookie) @ 6/9/2009 08:47

Character's sprite looks too contrast to background. There should some smoothness at legs, or may by its whole contour.

Ninja Crow (Level 3 Private Eye) @ 6/3/2009 00:49

This screenshot alone is proof of immense talent; and when combined with the jaw-dropping quality of others from this same game, I can only pray to whatever gods you most fear that this will be released very soon!  Great job, and thanks for posting this (the world is in your debt - or at least me).

jiipm (Level 1 Rookie) @ 5/28/2009 06:46

I´d buy it.

ramazing (Level 3 Sergeant) @ 5/28/2009 02:36

lovely  :)

meiji1990 (Level 1 Gangster) @ 7/2/2008 18:30
Your textures are very detailed..@_@

ivancat (Level 2 Quiet One) @ 4/28/2008 20:58
very nice~:)

ice9 (Level 1 Gangster) @ 7/16/2007 08:52
I admire your work -- and since I'm a mockup fan, I can't avoid falling in love with this one from you -- really well done, it reminds me of Lomax maybe.

Corpse On Rails (Level 1 Depressed) @ 6/7/2007 21:46
I'd tap that.  The only piece of criticism I have would be about the highlight on the grass..

elend (Level 3 Corporate Drone) @ 5/21/2007 10:23
I'd play that asap.

pain (Level 9 Nidan) @ 5/4/2007 13:28
reminds me of one amiga game ... beautifull ...

AndyOaks (Level 1 Rookie) @ 4/2/2007 01:11
Totally amazing! I love the fluent curved shapes you're using. The floor is especially good - very original.

Necky (Level 1 Rookie) @ 3/29/2007 09:54
Wow! This is amazing!!! Great job! The detail is breath taking! Just one question, when's the game coming out!

pferguso (Level 2 Kukyu) @ 3/16/2007 15:50
Holy Schmolie!  If this is only a mockup, I'd love to see what it looks like when you put some real effort into it!  5/5 and fav'd!

sausage (Level 5 Sniper) @ 3/15/2007 14:24

Brilliant work,     After reading the Description i was wondering if it is possible to make GBA games yourself,  or Nintendo DS......   any help here?


Oh    and Christopher,     Moaning AGAIN!

9_6 (Level 1 Intern) @ 3/13/2007 18:22
Wow. Absolutely beautiful tiles and background. If only I could bring myself to put that much effort into those. *faved*

Squirrelsquid (Level 4 Rubbish) @ 3/12/2007 16:23
awesome! I realy like the palette!  Though you should be able to use more colors on GBA. If I remember correctly it did have 16 16-color palettes? Faved

JayCain (Level 1 Intern) @ 3/12/2007 13:10
This is truly a beautiful work of art!

Doppleganger (Level 6 Yonkyu) @ 3/12/2007 13:01
You really captured an amount of depth in this. I really like how well the subtle shading works on the grass in the foreground. It makes it look extremely soft.

My only qualm is the bottom half of the platforms. They tile perfectly fine but for some reason it's not lined up in the bottom left area. It's only noticeable at 2x but a qualms a qualm. Haha.

6/6 and fav'd. If I ever have to do some platformer games, I'm going to check back with this to see what exactly needs doing to make it stand out as something spectacular.

schrumpfkopf (Level 4 Team Leader) @ 3/12/2007 06:23

infiziert mit dem nieborgschem fieber :)

fil_razorback (Level 5 Lieutenant) @ 3/11/2007 12:18
Tjis is by far the most beautiful platformer mockup I've ever seen. Too bad I can only fav it once.

raynoa (Level 5 Soldier) @ 3/11/2007 10:57
My God, just can't be silent here - this is great, impressive mockup! Nice mood of dark forest, and overall palette is nice too!

joseph_ch (Level 3 Enforcer) @ 3/10/2007 19:25
I was just about to pass this up until I literally said out loud "holy shit". This piece is fuckin awesome. fantastic work here. its very detailed and gives a great atmosphere.

happip (Level 6 Serial Killer) @ 3/10/2007 03:18
awesome work *__*

Blackbeltdude (Level 7 Ichikyu) @ 3/9/2007 22:22
Jeez, sold me the game.

Since you already said the tile mismatch was due to sloppiness, I guess I don't need to mention it. :P

But, I'm a little confused about the trees; the middle layered ones infront of the blue. Now, I understand that there's a kinda of cool blue light comming from the back. (Which I think is awesome.) But there's these little set of tiles that seem to conflict with that back light source right between the tree branches. It's like a puffy mass of leaves right there, were the light source is comming from the front.

I dunno, I could be wrong about them I suppose, but they feel off or conflicting... maybe they weren't planned as much as the beautiful ground.  Though, doing tree tops are a pain in the butt anyhow. :P

Adarias (Level 11 Bonsai) @ 3/9/2007 20:50
beautiful work, stunning really.  I would consider purchasing this game.

BadMrBox (Level 2 Quiet One) @ 3/9/2007 20:17
Wow, this looks really good

iLKke (Level 9 Nidan) @ 3/9/2007 19:33
Awesome! More, please!

DarkfalzX (Level 7 Assassin) @ 3/9/2007 18:41
Thank you very much guys for all the positive feedback: )
I am aware of several misalignments in the tileset, but it has more to do with me getting sloppy while skinning the level, as the tree has a set of tiles with which it connects perfectly: )
And, yes, some of you who invoked the name of Henk Nieberg have correctly recognized the source of my inspiration... Though hopefully this game will play better than most Henk's games did: )

Setzer (Level 8 Cannibal) @ 3/9/2007 18:40
Almost reminds me of lomax(ps1 platformer, henk neiborg), really nice.

Josiah (Level 2 Flatfoot) @ 3/9/2007 17:16

one thing i see wrong IMO is is that you can see some cut off line, in the tiles under near, where that girl is standing,

It looks amazing though

PaoloVictor (Level 3 Enforcer) @ 3/9/2007 16:36
I need a new pair of pants.

grave (Level 9 Federal Agent) @ 3/9/2007 16:36

Holy cheese!
Im speechless about those bg's.
If i had to complain about one thing it would have to be that when zoomed in the grey highlights on the grass stands out abit to much. But not on 1x so it all depends on how it will be used.

This is henk nieborg quality.

smartmex91 (Level 1 Private) @ 3/9/2007 16:07
Now this is an awesome mock-up.

Mykola (Level 3 Corporate Drone) @ 3/9/2007 15:46
You are my new idol in game pixel art.

Scruffs (Level 7 Assassin) @ 3/9/2007 15:46
holy...this is the best mockup ive seen in a long time.  Reminds me of henk nieborg.

cerealkiller54 (Level 6 Made) @ 3/9/2007 15:36
Nice job. It looks like a cool game.

Farmero (Level 2 Quiet One) @ 3/9/2007 15:33

<eeeeeee> OMFG



Emanu (Level 3 Chief) @ 3/9/2007 15:22
great stuff! asspat!

ZoSo (Level 3 Chief) @ 3/9/2007 13:56
Wow... i love this.

The B.O.B. (Level 11 Master Assassin) @ 3/9/2007 13:36
After having such a hard work tiling, I can appreciate the work put into this, as well as the creativity. Looks great. My only critique would be the tree that the little girl is front of. The dramatic change of light source from left to right, make the tree's bark look a bit skin-like in texture. Could be the darkest color in the tree, but I'm no expert. Looks great anyhow...

Christopher (Level 5 Killer Klown) @ 3/9/2007 13:12

Ah i love this. The pose is a little odd but other then that everything is great.
