Spriting like that shouldn't be hard..

You can see he used an LF2 character as base. Colorize all the sprites red. Use brushes and the wind effect (I think). But the sprites are original :)

Ok I'll be honest here - I've been a fan of your works and wanted you to finish them as fast as possible (because it reminds me about doom2 so much!). And now you came :)

omg omg omg, I'm excited. I'll post a review now :p

Azazel
Review


Idea: 10/10
Sprites: 10/10
Data: 8/10
Gameplay: 9/10
Overall: 9.25/10
- very neat character, with some great new ideas for moves.


Idea: 10/10
This is an awesome idea. Some time ago I was thinking about something similar, although I didn't have the right motivation do finish it... Awesome!

Sprites: 10/10
Somebody may say 'oh man nothing advanced you sux' but I think that this is unique; and everything which is unique is godlike. And actually, making these blur'd flames appear nice in the game is a very good job, imo.

Data: 8/10
Yes, the ideas were awesome (see gameplay for more). But I noticed some centnerx/y mistakes & stuff like that... Well you know, certainly nothing too important, but somehow I always have an eye for these kind of mistakes :p

Gameplay: 9/10
You rock. I enjoyed every move of Azazel. It seems like you spent very much time thinking about those, which is awesome.
D>A - Somewhat awesome! It's a simple ball, although it has a purpose, not like these cheap balls I see very often...
DvJ - Great, and in my opinion it is quite balanced (because it might look like it is not). It's quite hard to catch your enemy, only works for one potential enemy (and by that I mean that I haven't tested if it hits more than one enemy when it is doing these hitting frames) and takes some mana, too.
D^J - WHOA, great move to just kick-a** your enemies. But, why is that random missile? Were you bored? :D
D>J - Awesome move to hurt good amount of enemies... but this one is not so amazing. Not saying that it sucks, though ;D
D - Yeah you can always spawn a 'shield' to help you, but this new following (or rather just moving) soul which can take one hit is amazing! Although I'd make it fully 'follow-able' (?) because now it doesn't follow you on z-axis or x-axis.
Run + D - Good way to change rowing. Really, stunning enemies is a great idea!

I'm amazed. You certainly needed a lot of time, but you have done a very brilliant job :)

Somebody could possibly shun me for this, but: how can you be sure that those effects will look good in LF2? As I remember, if it gets too messy between shades of black, the sprite looks crappy in-game (I'm not saying they're not cool, I'm just asking if they'll work 100%).

Don't worry, they do look okay, I tested in game ;)

fire power Wrote:The sprites look awesome you gotta teach me to sprite like that...
I'm not a good spriter myself but it is still hard work making all the frames have the burning effect. It has more frames than usual LF2 chars out there even if it only has 4 special moves...

I just maximized the use of Photoshop esp. wind effect and liquefy... ;)

Simoneon Wrote:D^J - WHOA, great move to just kick-a** your enemies. But, why is that random missile? Were you bored? :D
rolleyesI just based it from his fire ball... I might change it to something bigger? Or just removed it? :s

Simoneon Wrote:D - Although I'd make it fully 'follow-able' (?) because now it doesn't follow you on z-axis or x-axis.
Well, it appears only in a very short time. And making it longer would make him unbalanced... And I'm lazy to do it anyways... XD

Simoneon Wrote:Run + D - Good way to change rowing. Really, stunning enemies is a great idea!
And it can destroy some energy balls when running away from them... :D

Simoneon Wrote:D>J - Awesome move to hurt good amount of enemies... but this one is not so amazing. Not saying that it sucks, though ;D
I really have a lot of ideas for this one but I'm not an expert Dcer myself...

Simoneon Wrote:DvJ - ...(and by that I mean that I haven't tested if it hits more than one enemy when it is doing these hitting frames) and takes some mana, too.
It can hit more than one enemy, btw... ;)

I made it with detailed cleaning of black pixels but that's really hard work... XD
(I updated the gif, btw...)

Thanks Simoneon for the detailed feedback. I really appreciate it. Although this is almost the full version already, I might consider a few things to be improved... ;)

Thanks for downloading, people! ;)

much better than the last version
really like that you animated the flames in every action he has - and good job on the outlines
his moves could be polished up a bit tho
like make the transformation more controllable (and a fitting ball object - that little one is a joke)
or edit the graphics of the hammer to better suit the rest of the sprites (make it consist of energy/black metal - is that hammer from hammerfight?)

edit: also why so many data objects?

These was really new sprites,and i think that you have work a lot.
So how did you do them? which program did you use?

Thanks for the new feedbacks! It's really hard work to make him fully animated with flames... Every movement really needs to have a lot of frames... Xd

empirefantasy Wrote:Great images!

Well, edits from LF2 and Hexen, and effects made from photoshop... :D

YinYin Wrote:like make the transformation more controllable
I'm not sure... It might make him overpowered? And it might need longer time for an invulnerable attack... I'll think of it, though... :s

YinYin Wrote:(and a fitting ball object - that little one is a joke)
Yeah, I'm planning to make a bigger one that fits... ;)

YinYin Wrote:or edit the graphics of the hammer to better suit the rest of the sprites (make it consist of energy/black metal)
I'm not sure but I'll try... ;)

YinYin Wrote:is that hammer from hammerfight?
It's from Hexen... Wow, hammerfight looks like a nice game... :O

YinYin Wrote:edit: also why so many data objects?
Ah..., because of the hammer move... I'll try to compress it... ;)

Wow, after these feedbacks, I should stop from being contented with it and work on the new version already... Hmph
