Default Video demo of my untitled platform homebrew game

In case anyone is interested, I'm doing another project, but this time it's a platformer. Much harder to code than simple puzzles.

That looks like it's going to be good.

Thanks for the comments. Not much work has been done, though I've made it so the rom can have a potential 32000 rooms to go into.

I seem to suck at drawing trees. I need some trees for the BG in one area.

What would the tile dimensions be? I could give it a shot.

Well, the upper part would probably need around 9 or so 16x16 tiles. It can use black and 2 greens, but the last color must be left blue for the sky.

The central tile of the 3x3 block should also be made so it could be side-by-side with itself in case I ever wanted to make the tree 5x5 or something.

If you want to go at it, I'll certainly look at the results. Thanks.

Question So, just to make sure I understand correctly...

So, just to make sure I understand correctly, it would be something like

Code:

[Bl][Bl][Bl][Bl][UL][UC][UC][UC][UC][UC][UR]
[UL][UC][UR][Bl][ML][MC][MC][MC][MC][MC][MR]
[ML][MC][MR][Bl][ML][MC][MC][MC][MC][MC][MR]
[DL][DC][DR][Bl][DL][DC][DC][DC][DC][DC][DR]
[Bl][Tr][Bl][Bl][Bl][Bl][Bl][Tr][Bl][Bl][Bl]
(UL=upper left folliage, MC=middle center folliage, etc., Bl=blank blue bg, Tr= Trunk tile)

and each tile is limited to a four color palette? (So for the trunk, two browns, black, and sky blue?)

You have the right idea.

http://img134.imageshack.us/img134/5381/28df0.png - This was my basic attempt, although the leaves are stolen from Wood Man. I only have that as a temporary.

The trunk is a full 16 pixels wide so it uses 3 browns. Hope that helps.

Question Ok, I fiddled around a bit in GIMP...

Did you have something like this in mind, or were you looking for something more realistic looking?

Actually, that's not bad in the least. I might alter it to have black around the edges, but I'll play with that design. Very nice stuff.
