I've been on a 2x kick.  Really argued with myself over it for this challenge.

First challenge; wanted to animate the whole thing but what I had in mind was out of view for time

P.S. So my interpretation of the deadline was wrong and I got all flustered last night for no reason.  What's done is done, though.  ;0  Happy Easter everyone!

Update:  Reduced colors to from 27 to 20

Oh my, that is one nice background!

No, sorry, it doesn't help at all. I still think there are perspective issues. I realize the platforms are round edged, but we're seeing both the surface and the sides of the platforms, which means it's not strictly a side perspective. We're also seeing where the vertical girders connect with the platforms at the top and the bottom in a way that suggests either a side perspective or a vertical construction where no platforms are actually on top of each other, but on the other hand the platforms are clearly casting a shadow on each other.

If you just hid the tiny T-parts where the vertical girders hit the bottom of each platform, then the perspective would make a lot more sense. And it's an easy fix.

@CELS  If this helps your perspective at all, the platforms are round edged; the shadows are sinking around the curvature.

I like this, but the perspective of the platforms are confusing to me. From the way the verticallegs / girders touch the top and bottom of the horizontal platforms, this looks like a straight side view. But the way that the horizontal platforms cast shadows on each other makes it look like we're seeing them from above.

I agree some colors could have been dropped without destroying the uniformity too much (specifically between the mix of character and UI elements).  That is also something I didn't get to play with before I ran out of time!

Realized the challenge would be due first thing in the AM of today -- not the PM.  Ultimately procrascinated finishing different action sprites of the characters and minor tweaks til I was pushing right up to the deadline and then had to rush out my export and upload.

Still, I am happy with it's outcome and am glad you enjoy it the way it is in addition to the frivolity of my uncreative names.  =)

Agree, player names are great. Everything is.

This could MAYBE be done with less colors, although I like it the way it is :)

Also, good names :)
