    I found this game rather amusing, but then I remember when graphics like this were the "standard". I'm not so sure modern gamers will appreciate it as much, though. I actually wrote a review for this a couple of months ago, so check your PMs for the link, white dev.
     
  4. Hi Eric

    Thank you for your review! I did see it and I love it!

    By some updates, The game got color graphics and online ranking. It has evolved since the 70's.:)

    You sure had me worried there for a minute with this whole color thing. I updated to the latest version, though, and now I get it :) I actually got a kick out of it when I found out what the "color" upgrade was.
     
  8. Thank you!
    The secret color will be also fun for you. ;)

    Sweet, merciless monochrome, how it burns thine eyes.

    Curious, though, how they do the fairly detailed graphics without stuff like Photoshop and Illustrator? Pixel by pixel placement or what?
     
  10. This monochrome graphics is using pre-processed textures.

    Photo-based images did convert to 1-bit texture by Gimp. And, textures place to the screen by cell (8 pixels by 8 pixels).
