I've been working on the art a little bit. I decided to go with a slightly simple style based on some snes games. Which, can get very detailed yet don't go through a lot of trouble doing so. So, here's some of the newest stuff:
I'm going to try to have flying enemies in this game. The one with the three spikes, called simply Tri Flyer, is going to move around in circles around certain areas of the stage. The blade looking thing, called a Roller, is going to bounce and travel along the platforms. I also have a first boss sketched up already. And last but not least, you may have noticed the "name pending" piece added to the title, let me explain.
I decided to do a google search on it. I came up with only one complete hit that connected it to a certain band. These guys are prolific in gothic dark electronic rock offensive material. Needless to say, this is not something I want my game to be associated with. (The opposite case of dr james Luyyne Diversity. Go buy and play it, or download the ost.) So I'm gonna have to change the name. Plus the particular album subtitle's artwork was banned for offensive material. So yeah, a name change is coming. So much for originality, meh.
I agree. The tree looks out of place. The bush with the little red berries or whatever on it... you should probably reverse the shading on it so that the main part is dark and the outer ridge is light. So it's more of a highlight. That would match your highlighted grass.
