This is my work for the Weekly Challenge. It is a High Score of a spaceship game.

3~4 hours of work. I hope you like it.


After follow Wootai's tips, I added more things to this. I think it is much better now.

I hope you like it.

Gostei desse fundo, e o estilo da letra.

Mistiqueshis (Level 1 Rookie) @ 12/10/2010 07:16

 Luisniel, foi bem simples. Pintei de preto, e usei cores escuras (roxo, por exemplo), depois apliquei o dithering para "misturar" os tons, e dar esse efeito.

É algo demorado, mas não é dificil ^^

 Como você fe. esse fundo? Uau!

 Wootai, English is not my native language, so I don't understand much. I will change the "Lifes" for "Lives". I will get the alignment too. Thanks, your comments helped me a lot.

ZeroSum and Relix, Thanks for comment.

Spherical Ice, No, is just a coincidence. AAA is something I did for my friend who uses this Nickname in games.

Spherical Ice (Level 2 Dealer) @ 12/8/2010 05:37

Nice reference to Neopets with AAA having the highest score. ..or is that a coincedence?

Relix (Level 4 Deputy) @ 12/8/2010 03:12

Where's "ASS"?

I like the background the most.

ZeroSum (Level 5 Killer Klown) @ 12/7/2010 23:37

The text seems a little busy for my taste, that aside I very much like the background.

Wootai (Level 1 Rookie) @ 12/7/2010 21:34

 Gramatically, I think it should be "Lives" in the upper left, and i still think the right column (the score numbers) should be right-justified (aligned to the right).

There are some strange kerning (Space between character) things happening there also with your 9's right before the commas (,) in the 29,000 the space looks closer than either of the 19,000 could be the fault of the font you're using. 

This does look much better, it now looks like the a screenshot  of the  high score screen from an old arcade game while the "Demo mode" Plays in the background.

Thanks Wootai, your comment helped me a lot. I did some things that you mentioned. Now, I think, is better than before. If have anything I can improve, Tell Me.

Bye o/

 Yah sorry it was so long, I'm a designer by trade, (not an artist) so i tend to be more critical of design than of art. While a high score screen might be "pixel art", displaying information in a logical, functional and creative way is design.

Mistiqueshis (Level 1 Rookie) @ 12/7/2010 17:26

 A.B Lazer Thanks for the comment, I will change this.

Wootai, Wow, its a Very Big Comment. XD

I will try to add some more stuff, maybe the ships in the game, and a HUD in the corner. Thanks for giving me these tips, you are right about it.

Wootai (Level 1 Rookie) @ 12/7/2010 17:01

 I like it. Its nice, but its also very early in the week to be finished. There are plenty of things that you could do to improve this I think. There is a bit of design to this challenge this week, its not just about making a pretty picture. Think about how what a it means to be the High score, shouldn't they be bigger than the rest of the "Also-Rans" on the screen? what about including some elements of "the game" into the screen?  What about including some of the in game icons that stay on screen when the high scores are displayed.

Slapping a few numbers on a screen might be a high score screen but its a little basic right now. While this is better than a White background with black letters, its not doing much more than what that would do. 

Some changes i would encourage: Right Justifying Scores, especially when not using a mono-spaced font this can look strange. Like how 8,000 taking up almost the same space as 15,000?

I don't mean to be over critical but it seems like this was rushed out, I would have liked to see it in the WIP forums before it was posted to the gallery.

Looks quite like snow/ice. Nice clouds underneath.

I, C and O could lose some of additional scratches (or maybe scratces could be darker than letters themselves)  - they make them look like E and Q respectively.
