Screenshot of the Week 221
Posted 27 July 2008 - 08:16 PM
Magical Rod. Magical Book. Makeshift Umbrella.
Link visits the place where the fairies rescued him.
Hmm... I see trees, a cave, and ... WATER.
The room above will decide whether Link saves Horodrum.

Graphics are good all around.
TMS: If you had some enemies and action, it may have taken my eyes away from the bottom half of the screen, which is very repetitive, break up some repetition, if you simply just need a single tree cluster of 4 trees, do it, that would be better, then you'd have room for more details in other parts of the screen. Like, you could put a rock formation, or huge boulder in the bottom right side of the screen.
Zemious: Biggest link isn't the best link, graphically, he is excellent, height and stylistically, no. I suggest making him 4-12 pixels shorter, so he is taller than 16x16, but not huge.

gray0x - All I see is a house. That's pretty much it.
Moonwhisper - This by far, has the best design, but I don't really like the brown clashing with the green. :vote:
Shoelace - Great Shot, but I've seen this before on your YouTube video.
TMS: The ground detail could have been better. Repetitive use of Mini ALTTP Trees.
Zeromus - Link needs to grow down. It's like he's wearing the giant's mask!

Also, Classic is awesome.

Gray0x- Ground detail is a little lacking, and the shadows make the trees underneath look bleh. Not a bad screen, but nothing special.
Moonwhisper- Beautiful, beautiful shot, I almost voted here. Probably the best shot I've ever seen in Classic, no joke. The one thing that really marred the screen is the random brown tiles in the top-right and random green ones in the bottom left. The mixture is good, but it looks a little too random.
Shoelace- Here's where my vote goes, I just cannot wait for Eye of the Moon. I love the graphics and the game promises to be great. I don't like this shot as much as a lot of other shots from EoTM(this one's ground detail looks a little mediocre) but I love the water and the mountains tons. SHOW US LINK'S FACE!!!
TheMasterSwordsman- The ground detail is pretty bad and I don't get the design. It's not bad design, but it's not really special enough to make the screen worthy of a SoTW.
Zemious- I like the graphics and the sprite, but it's really nothing too special as far as design, action or detail goes.

Shoelace's looked too overdone. It's hard for me to explain what I mean by that... It's as if this screenshot was made specifically to trump SotW. Also I don't like Link when he's bigger than 16x16.
gray0x is just... eww, there's something I don't like here. The shade of green he used is just sickly.
TMS's is awesome, except for that there's solid objects too close to the border and not also on the border. Always offer two adjacent squares of non-solidity on all screen exits, never just one. Also there's too much green for me to handle, though not as much as gray0x.
Zem's is almost perfect, and definitely my second favorite. But 16x32 Link is just... no.
So yeah, Moonwhisper wins. And yes I'm a harsh judge. Sue me, I dare you. My lawyer will be Phoenix Wright.

Moonwhisper: I love classic! Almost got my vote.
Shoelace: Impressive. Almost got my vote. Now show us Link's face already!
TMS: Good design, but it needs some tree variety. Although it wins for caption.
Zemious: Nice screen, very good, but not SotW worthy.
I couldn't decide between Moonwhisper and Shoelace, so I nulled.

Moonwhisper- The classic look is greatlooking, is the shade clouds? VOTE
Shoelace- I've seen this before
TMS- DoR dosent catch my eye anymore, I think its been abused to much
Zemious- Great, but isnt the doorway to small?

And I always have a reason for posting a screenshot. This time was to show off one of the most important places in the game. You can't tell by looking at it but a major event takes place and well... I won't say anymore as I want for everything to be a surprise. XD
And yeah that is the question. When will Shoelace show Link's face?
Posted 28 July 2008 - 06:56 AM
...You're hiding his face on purpose?
Awkay, NOW you got me curious. Great, just great. Curious + coffee = Schwa does his Tazmanian Devil act. Come to think of it, I know virtually nothing about Eye of the Moon, even though it's supposedly a huge quest in the works...
How much would we have to flatter you for you to give us a hint, Shoes?
Posted 28 July 2008 - 07:00 AM
And my second vote would go to MoonWhisper.
