Kolibri — Sega 32X — Novotrade (1995)
Exactly how I feel when I play shmups:3
I decided to check out Super Mario Land for research purposes while working on my Marne Bros project. It’s one of the early Gameboy games, and it sort of shows. There’s a certain appeal to the simple readable graphics though.
Anyways, after having played the game for a bit I suddenly got the urge to see if I could do something with the sprites in Photoshop. Then I realized I could actually put the sprites in the game since the 2 bitplane tiles are pretty easy to read and write. Then I decided to redo the graphics for the entire game, so I spent a few days doing that.
