posting old stuff...

Background for a jump´n´run style game, with very saturated colors.
technical nothing fancy, 16x16 tiles, two tilelayers ect.
Probably too many colours, but this way it was easier for me to edit the colorramps afterwarth.

edit: fixed the black pixels. No idea how they got in there.

I'm glad this periodically shows back up on the frontpage HoF queue so I can re-analyze all the reasons it works, both as art and as information for the player.

 I would really like to play this game if it had artwork like this

LumpyTouch (Level 4 Deputy) @ 11/20/2012 18:36

straight up eye candy. love it.

Voldimars (Level 6 SWAT) @ 9/6/2012 22:17

 Great work!

 Amaaaazing man. Looks just how I'd picture a good side-scrolling jungle to look like in a game. I'm gonna have to agree with |||| and say that I'm quite inspired by this to start working soon on the jungle tileset for my game. I also love how seamless the tiles are, I can't really tell where one starts or also looks so much bigger than 16x16. X.X

Like some of the most beautiful games of the 16-bit era. If only more games had art of this quality.

I'm super inspired by this. One great background design.

avo (Level 8 Cannibal) @ 7/25/2010 08:42

beautiful background! 

slym (Level 8 Rear Admiral) @ 3/8/2010 18:23

You need to do this type of thing more often! 

Dino502Run (Level 6 Serial Killer) @ 1/10/2010 18:54

I love the way the trees leaves are!  This is great

Soala (Level 1 Rookie) @ 1/30/2009 09:57
Awesome piece of pixel art ! I totally love those platforms !

iLKke (Level 9 Nidan) @ 1/20/2009 06:42

You've got two black pixels at the center of the image?

Anyway, very nice tileset. Only crit is clouds+the tiling on the rocks is kinda obvious.

Cloveck (Level 2 Hired Gun) @ 12/26/2008 22:20
Nice, I especially like the trees and the bark.

Slemsvamp (Level 6 Serial Killer) @ 12/16/2008 08:42
Oh my! How the hell could I miss this? Pure awesomeness

jamon (Level 10 Operative) @ 12/15/2008 05:45
PRO stuff!

rabidbaboy (Level 4 Shichikyu) @ 11/18/2008 01:00
I remember this.

The title is apt. :P

DJD (Level 4 Button Man) @ 11/17/2008 23:45
not a big deal, but just noticed a couple stray black pixels on top of the purple plant in the center. Also the cloud thing people mentioned irks still. Great pixel once again.

Gil (Level 6 Major) @ 11/17/2008 14:31
Some priorities issues going on, but very very solid pixeling going on here. Lovely!

I Am Uh (Level 4 Button Man) @ 11/17/2008 04:13
I've always loved you're work. Platform Pixels are some of my favorite to do, and this truly is amazing.

JoshF (Level 4 Deputy) @ 11/15/2008 23:24
I want to swing on this Top Secret/Bionic Commando style.  Nice bark, different from the twisty/gnarled look you usually see.

Nessiah (Level 4 Gas Giant) @ 11/15/2008 22:07
damn that's beautiful

chanfan (Level 7 Underboss) @ 11/14/2008 04:57
WOW! This is orgasmic!

Tre Le Coco (Level 1 Thug) @ 11/14/2008 02:45
Wow, i love this ^^ its truly a stunning piece, old or not :)

ElectroNico (Level 6 Serial Killer) @ 11/13/2008 09:27

Everything's great: the rocks, the vegetation, the trees .... I'm not a big fan of the palette, but who cares ;) Great work anyway ! Now bring on some characters into the set ;)

Darth Mandarb (Level 10 Operative) @ 11/13/2008 09:08
wow ...

this is ...

just beautiful

TomF (Level 2 Flatfoot) @ 11/13/2008 04:56
Now that's what I'm talkin about. For some reason this appeals to me so much, some of my fav tiles ever bar henks work. I love the saturation and this whole tileset just screams "lush".

ManningKrull (Level 9 Executioner) @ 11/13/2008 01:17
Wow! This is one of most gorgeous platform sets I've ever seen. Faved.

elend (Level 3 Corporate Drone) @ 11/13/2008 00:14
Yay, would love to play this one asap. Very great work.

DJD (Level 4 Button Man) @ 11/12/2008 20:43
Daamn, that's a really smooth set. Great work!

r1k (Level 1 Rookie) @ 11/12/2008 20:39
ya the shadows shouldnt be on the top of the clouds since the sun is above them.  Other than that, that tile set is awesome.

yuji (Level 1 Gangster) @ 11/12/2008 19:09
very good job! added to favorites!

The comment on the clouds is true.. they seem upside down...

AdamF (Level 11 CEO) @ 11/12/2008 19:08
One of my favorite tilesets, ever..

7Soul (Level 6 Garbage) @ 11/12/2008 18:38
Really nice, but clouds seems upside down

jalonso (Level 11 Godfather) @ 11/12/2008 17:09
A most attractive tileset. Saturation is nice to me on this.
