Update of old 8 bit game 'Werewolves of London' (CPC version pics at http://www.cpczone.net/index.php?game=1123 ).  Obviously not using the old widepixel look, and also now using the full width of the screen res rather than the cropped window of the old game.  Also using height of 240 to add 'widescreen' borders for more cinematic look.  Old version was like that sorta on monitors anyways.  No more time left to refine bits but I'm happy with it as it is.  Tried some stuff I hadn't really done before and found me a different way of drawing characters I hadn't done before either, so yeah.  Oh yeah the werewolf is the main player character, so yup, much killing fun to be had.

I quickly fell in love with this piece. you captured the early 90's arcade style perfectly. seems like that wolverine looking character got ripped to shreds. as sputnik noted, the blood bag is brilliant. as for the wolf's next meal, seems more like a business guy shielding himself with his briefcase.

user
jamienos (Level 2 Flatfoot) @ 10/8/2007 11:44
I love the poor guy taking the photo! Haha. faved

sputnik (Level 3 Sergeant) @ 10/3/2007 05:59
This is a great pixel. Hehe I noticed the little blood level thing at the top. Love your arcade style, Wolverine =]

I don't know the original game but your mockup looks really good, the characters are detailed and expressive, and their pose is very dynamic.

I thought I had faved that lil EGA action scene you did but turns out I hadn't.  Have done so now.  Thanks for comments.

hahahaha exelent! very nice details and colors. i love the blood scale at top left its awesome.

user
Adarias (Level 11 Special Agent) @ 9/26/2007 19:30
might benefit from use of another near-black for smoothing, but very nice nonetheless and the harsh dirty look of the value gap is not undesireable in this case

Woah, some awesome work here, man.
Characters look superb, and the background is solid.

user

Really great piece man. I dig the way you designed your sprites. My only question is...where was the thunder?

user
Carnivac (Level 8 Shodan) @ 9/25/2007 12:25
I know the feeling.  Was just browsing through the top rated pixel art of this sites history and darn, theres some amazing stuff that are way above my current skills.


Thanks to everyone for the nice comments.

Sometimes I look at some of the stuff on PixelJoint, and it just depresses me, and for a couple different reasons:

1. I wish I could have the knownledge to be that good

2. I wish I had the time to be that good

and 3. Because I wish these images and mockups could be actual screenshots of available games.

Great job on this! I love the Werewolf. The other characters are funny and it makes for a great scene!

Make a game, I command you

lovely gamescene - the background has maybe a bit too much contrast - but still a fav

I've been fawning over your site recently and I gotta say this and everything else is just ace. I'm a big fan of the way you use black prominently in characters.

user
ooshmaster (Level 5 Soldier) @ 9/23/2007 18:06
What I hate about great mock-ups such as this is it makes me really want to play the game, but the game doesn't actually exist. So then I'm all pissed off. Thanks a lot!
Oh, and I was going to add something about the blood bag being a superb and original Idea, but I see that it was in the original as well... Better luck next time! (You still get my vote)
