Looks good, but may I make some suggestions. For the first picture I think you need to redraw the ship bigger, instead of just enlarging it. Because now it looks very pixelated. I think you should also add some differant wall tiles, it is very hard on the eyes to see the same pattern over and over. Add things like pipes and containers in the background.

I agree with these chaps ^

I would say make the background lighter so the character can be seen, you don't want him to blend into the background. Also the levels look a little bare. But otherwise its pretty good.

Oh and the storm trooper looking character is cool.

It looks too "tilerific". The backgrounds as mentioned really need to be lightened, they really hurt the eyes. The latest screenshot isn't bad, but I feel that circular clouds are quite lazy

Im not going to spend too much time on clouds. I'm not even sure if there are that many clouds on Tatooine. I've got enemies to make and stuff.

What kind of geek are you? Of course there's no clouds on tatooine.

[quote="Digital Dreams 2"]assault andy is totally right, the background is too complicated.[/quote]

ok the problem is that digital dreams took assault andy's advice the wrong way, and started everyone tlaking about making the bg lighter and darker, etc, but that won't work either

[quote="Assault Andy"]I think you should also add some differant wall tiles, it is very hard on the eyes to see the same pattern over and over. Add things like pipes and containers in the background.[/quote]

assault andy never said taht the background was complicated, rather he was advising to make it MORE complicated, because the tiled background is a strain on the eyes, lighter/darker/or the same, it's waaay to repetitive, so to take away from the repetitiveness, he advised to add more dynamic background objects, such as pipes, and ocntainers, and my advice is to possibly layer them somewhat, that way giving the game more depth, rather than looking so flat

Actually what i wrote was my opinion, i think the backgrounds would look better if they werent the same colour as the character.

But adding more to it is good too.

sensation your just confusing things. Keep it simple. The defiantone05- i persoanlly think your background is too complicated, i would take away the use of black as youve already outlined your main characters in black. Or you could do as sensation suggests and add depth. But then it could end up looking like a typical mario fan game or sonic game. Try and be unique with your backgrounds and think 'would there really be pipelines and hills with smiley faces in tatooine?
