 Great !

Great mockup and old-school feel. The player characters look great, and the background is old-school simple but works nicely as well. However, the enemy character, his weapons and the bullet look uninteresting and out of place... Playing with the color scheme, pose, and all around character design would help.

Damn you!!! That rocks!!! All by!!! Wow!!!

Thanks all. Gas - i think i might redo the locust weapon and a bit of his platform, but i don't know if I can edit after submission.

Great fighters on the low stage, love the BG shading. Moody scene, I like it very much.

The character on the higher stage is what disturbs me here. It looks weird, it shoots with some huge bullets. I'm not sure if this could be improved but 2 parallel guns looks strange either.

I was in love with this since I saw it in forums, but that grey guy ruined it for me :|

Whoa! Nice use of colors! I thought of making Gears of War too, but the insane details and many colors made me change the game. But you managed to make it look really really detailed and with only 30 colors for a mockup!

But there's something that bugs me... The locust (is that its name?) pose. It's not dynamic, see? Also, I think you could make their armor a bit bigger. They were like astrounauts suits for Fenix and Don XD

I don't think blood on them would be possibly practic to make in a gameplay, but it's still interesting :)

hmm nicely done, but I would have added a touch more contrast to the sky, I can hardly see a difference between the darker and lighter tones. Definitely one of the top entries so far, though.

I love everything about this... the colors, sprites, details in the background. Very cool. Good luck in the challenge.

I think this is absolutely great. Amazing job although the sky is a bit bland.

one of the top contenters in this challenge, though there are 2 things that bother me a bit (or i just don't get it right, whatever.. i just don't wanna wait for ilkke to start the flaming =)

first one is the wall on the right, whichs perspective totally confused me: is that guys ellbow a) extending into the wall or is it b) above its upper edge? - if b) then i don't quite get where the guy with the sickly skintone is standing on and then the width of the upper edge wouldn't fit the width of the pavement.. aaah!

second thing is that the pavement is quite narrow (the border between fore- and background feels like 1m behind my screen).. playing this would probably feel a bit claustophobic 

Amorphous (Level 3 Sergeant) @ 1/13/2008 14:33

Looks great!

The bald guy all the way to the right, however, looks like he's shooting a rock, and the trail of the bullet looks strange to me.

At least, that's what I see. I don't know if everybody looks at it the same way.

Flarfy (Level 5 Detective) @ 1/13/2008 13:51
Looks really great. This will definitly be among the top 3

gpix13 (Level 1 Private) @ 1/13/2008 12:56
Wow, this is really good. I like the look of the people the most
