Dragonite got my vote rather quickly. While it might not be the best screen to ever come into being, it captures the personality of the Gameboy games quite well. icon_thumbsup.gif Snaps for you.

Geoffrey - Is that... VVVVVV? icon_odd.gif It's what it's reminding me of anyway. Pretty interesting stuff you got going on there...

Dragonite - You're doing very good with the GB tileset. Keep up the good work.

Cukeman - I voted here. I found it unique, in a way. The colors of the waterfall seem off, but I like the shot. Nice idea.

Dawnlight - The shot has a really nice palette. No really, it's incredible. The design is good too. It feels... foresty. Not much else I can say, it's a good shot. icon_smile.gif

It's Bubble Bobble, I think. icon_razz.gif

I voted for Dawnlight. I totally love that palette and the overall mood of the shot. The shots this week were pretty good overall, though.

It's always Tiny_Shane's fault, but at least Tiny_Dawnlight is locked in the waterfall just in case there's double trouble. icon_lol.gif

Also may I ask is "Midnight Falls" a reference to my old username?

Also BTW, Geoffrey, is it playable or is it just a mock up?

Voted for Dragonite. His shot captures the feel of the Gameboy games perfectly.

Dawnlight was a close second (although I see that sadly the screen appears to be a mock-up).

Geoffrey gets third. Looks like some creative gameplay you got there. Not the prettyest screen, but that's fine with me.

Last is Cukem-OH GOD WHAT!?

I believe it's probably a gameplay testing area. So essentially a playable mock-up.

I said beforehand that it was a concept of one of the areas in GM's Hyrule Field. I could possibly keep the name Midnight Falls. I never said I would abandon cameo's in GM. icon_wink.gif

Geoffrey: That room looks very hard.
Dragonite: I like the gameboy feel.
Cukeman: Sorry i really get a headache looking at this. I guess it confuses my head. (yes i know this is not a serious attempt aka joke screen)
Dawnlight: This screen i guess is good designwise and all (keeping to the norms established in the forum at what should make a good screen according to self proclaimed authorities). I just dont like it and i dont know why - sorry.

Pokemonmaster64 is right; it's entirely playable, yet simply a test-area.

Dawnlight, is that a WW inspired shot? with Makar behind the falls?

As for my shot I wanted to pull off a classic screen with a large sense of scale to it.
So we have multiple waterfalls pouring over a large cliffside into a lake, Link has to
shoot arrows into the eye of Gohma from the docks/piers/jetties that stretch across
the lake forming a land bridge. You seldom see boss battles outdoors in Zelda, so this
is really cool. Plus it makes for a very interesting battle having to dodge Gohma's fireballs
while traveling the limited paths and still having to line up your arrow shots.
Lastly, I added some flavor by having two colors of wooden boards to show how some
of them have really been bleached in the sun. Wear and tear is a cool detail.

If you understand the caption without having to look it up you are cool.

And no, it wasn't a joke shot you silly, silly people icon_lol.gif

Not everyone is fond of the classic tileset, I guess. Whatever

I'm cool with the classic tileset, I simply don't know where to look at on your screen. It's pretty chaotic and looks like random stuff thrown on a lake. For example those two cave entrances: do they do anything besides distracting the viewer? I actually like the clarity classic shots usually have but your's is a little too much on the confusing side for my tastes.

It's cool, but it's all perspective, if everything is simply there for functionality, it has no embellishments.
For instance, the trees, headstones(?) and mountain border in Dragonite's shot all do the same thing
(they keep Link from walking there) as far as functionality is concerned there IS no difference between
the mountains and the trees, but having them all be different keeps it from becoming boring. Not every
visual needs to be a part of the gameplay.
