PrinceMSC wins my vote icon_smile.gif

Marco is in a close second place. Very beautiful palette and all around screen design!

Everyone else is good, but nothing cough my attention.

What's the "secret," where Link is hiding?...

Nice, basic outdoor screen, but without any subscreen, player character, enemies, or other details, it's too generic to think much else.

That's a nice Classic-style screen you've got going there. Simple, but good. Could be a little cramped, though, depending.

The subscreen needs work. The "Hit Points" label is closer to the tech bar than the hearts. Heck, you might just want to do away with both labels. I would put the tech bar below the hearts either way, though. That's how almost all games do it. And spread out the icons on the right half of the subscreen to look less cramped.

Hey, does this use a side-view ladder script? Very nice. icon_smile.gif This is a screen I'd love to see in action, because if it does what it looks like it does, that'd be tough to pull off in ZC. I hope you succeeded.

Nice graphics, too. The bats are very hard to see, but I'm going to assume that was intentional.

Hmm, interesting pale palette there; it's a little purplish. This is a nice Classic screen, to be sure, but there's not much to distinguish it.

A village in the middle of a sewer...? They'd better have a darn good reason to be living there, because that's pretty nasty, and extremely unhealthy. Even for a video game.

The design isn't bad, but it's a little too "busy."

Ahh, I see you've made some changes to a few commonly used Pure graphics. That's nice. Some DoR graphics in there, too. This is a good-looking screen, though the walk flags are not very obvious, so I suppose its functionality depends on whether the flippers are a part of your quest.

Wow, very impressive. icon_smile.gif Your tile-drawing skills continue to show through. This is a simple transition screen, but still... Link is there, and it has a presence of sorts.

I'd still prefer to see some enemies or a subscreen or something, but everything else is so well-done that it wins my vote anyway. So there ya go.

I voted for Ventus it's the only one that really appealed to me.
The fancier screens felt like, been there done that to me.

I voted for the Half-Blood PrinceMSC. Neither of the other shots look that great IMO. icon_shrug.gif

Wow. It comes down to Marco and PrinceMSC for me. Prince's is quite appealing due to the tileset, but also very contrasty... I thought I was looking at mountains suspended in space at first. Marco also has some nice colors, though the water seems strangely busy... it's like it doesn't meld well with the rest of the screen. Still, I think I will side with Marco here. Good work, everyone. icon_smile.gif

Shane's is the most refreshing of the bunch to me, with that palette on those GBC graphics. The layout is nothing fancy, but that is a good thing in this case. The placement of the objects is well done. As soon as the image loaded I wanted to vote for it.

Hergiswi: I'm interested in seeing this one in action! It has better tile placement than the previous shot I'd seen from you. Also, captures the Gameboy feel fairly well. Well done.

Prince's got this one by the balls yet again.

Marco, you've got a very close second, though.

Shane :
Design and palette area great, and it looks like it's from somewhere in the beginning, with bushes blocking the path. Do the rocks have any purpose?

Ventus :
Standard PZC Classic screen. :)
The ground detail may be too crowded.

Look's interesting, what is the blue thing?



I wanted to do something simple, making a classic screen with classic design, I combined my favorite design elements from the game and made a custom palette on top of that. Didn't intend to win. :P

Looks like houses inside a dungeon :p. The orange is a bit repetitive but the green looks okay.

Looks like most of your screens, feels a bit too open in some places. Otherwise good design.

I like those bridges a lot, and the design is good as usual. The purple water blends in good with these tiles too, compared to the light blue water used last time.

I wish there was a good female character for the classic set, because I am in need of one. Is that a tar pit in your shot, PrinceMSC? I have had dreams about there being a tar dungeon in Ocarina Of Time. Maybe you plan to make a tar dungeon?

This. Just made my day.

Shane: You already posted this screen, so I'm not fond of seeing it again here. 6/10

Ventus: The design is pleasant, but the palette is below par. I feel more contrast would be better. 2/10

Hergiswi: I see what you aimed for but, I don't know I don't like the design or screen. It feels empty without order. 2/10

Gonken: Simple, open and flowing. Exquisite palette and harmony. 5/10

Nolornbon: Your screens often clash in perspective and the palettes are horrible. The design is crammed and the color is loud. 1/10

: Damn. 10/10

Shane - B
Pretty nice what you have here. Would be even cooler in the player.

Ventus - B-
It's not bad, although something about the flower arrangements bother me. Perhaps it doesn't feel right colorwise when combined with that plain ground color. I dunno.

Hergiswi - A-
That looks like a lot of fun. The hint of bricks near the torches is a very nicely added touch as well.

Gonken - C+
Nothing wrong with using classic, but this screen is nothing special. It works, but I can't really go with anything beyond that.

Norlonbon - A-
Very nice! I can see you getting mixed responses on the coloring, although I really like it.

Marco - A-
Fantastic usage of an autumn setting, and thus where most of my rating goes. Might be one too many tree colors though, thus slightly overdone in that aspect. I find it distracting once one screen uses more than three colors for tree leaves, but again, not a huge deal.

PrinceMSC - A
Now this just reaches for perfection, thus my highest possible rating. (Colleges don't do A+, kids icon_razz.gif) When you know you really like something to the point that you barely have to say anything, it's among the very best.

Prince easily gets my vote. The rest is a competition for second, although there were still many other great screens this week.

I went with Prince, too. It has the special something.
