I voted for Avataro. It's a simple screen in some ways, but looked so convincingly like LttP that I thought it deserved my vote.


coolgamer: I love the color choice and the pattern of the dungeon walls, but the screen itself is a little bit plain.


EpY: A nice screen that looks like something straight out of a GB Zelda. I like it ... but maybe you could have done more with the different ground colors?


Octorokoncrack: A nice screen with nice atmosphere. I love how you integrated the clouds and the mountain. Personally, the multicolored stars looked more like debris in the air, and the cloud style seems to clash with the classic tileset.


Demonlink: Nice screen, showcasing a nifty new tileset. I'm not a fan of those transparent blue clouds, myself.

I absolutely LOVE the atmosphere that Octorokoncrack has created with his screen, but Demonlink's is amazingly designed...


I'm gonna go with Octorok, because it reminds me of an idea I had...

To me, it was a tough one between Demonlink and OctorockOnCrack.


I was originally for OOC, until I felt his image was rather bland and depended on atmosphere alone. 


I voted for Demonlink.

Ohhh...for me, it's not even a contest here. Great job, Demonlink! You got a lot of mileage out of those little cliff tiles. :D

Coolgamer wins.


I don't see the appeal in OoC's. It's a mishmash of styles that doesn't work well for me. Avataro's and EpY's are a bit bland. Demonlink's is the only one with any real problems. It seems really busy. What am I looking at?

I voted for EpY. I like the graphics and it looks like it could have been a part of the official Gameboy Zelda games.

Avataro - Looks like a pretty good water dungeon screen, on par with similar screens I have seen from high quality quests.

coolgamer012345 - Its main flaw is that it is a very safe screen.  Nothing is misused, but at that same time, not much is being used in the first place.  It lacks that extra pizazz and enthusiasm.  It's certainly something to continue from, though.

EpY - A decently structured screen from a holistic standpoint.  However, you could use a more interesting approach with the tree and grass placements.  Nextdoor trees could do more than be placed perfectly adjacent to each other, and the grass could use some more detail.  Even very subtle differences (which I especially like) in grass tiles can spice things up greatly.

Octorockoncrack - My second favorite of the bunch.  Easily the most unique of the screens for this week.  Good detail with the clouds, as subtle as those details are.

Demonlink - My game ball goes here.  While it doesn't have the best looking palette of the bunch, I really do like the graphics, and I find the screen design and details to be the most superior for this week.  Considering the terrain type, I think a different color for those transparent clouds might work better.  Perhaps something more brownish?  You'd have to experiment of course.

Octorokoncrack wins this one for me. All the others were pretty close, save for Coolgamer; sorry btw, but it just needed a bit more oomph and more things on the screen, but hey, it's a good starting point!


But Octorokoncrack's shot is definitely really the most appealing this week, and I love the use of the clouds on that screen, great job!

for me it was between Avataro's Standard Dungeon Fare and Coolio's Link Pees Into Pool.  I went with Avataro's.  the rest were decent.

I voted for the octorock because that looks so good :D. The clouds work really well in the tileset and the background is nice.


Coolgamer could've used more details. (just as mine) ;)


EpY's screen is is almost perfect! I just don't like the colors/palette, but that's not your fault. I would've voted here if octorock's screen wouldn't be in the contest.


Demonlink has a really good screen too and I don't even mind the color of the clouds. :D Well, it looks a bit like water at the bottom of the screen.
