Re: Castlevania

Bloodlines is roughly on par with Rondo of Blood in terms of gameplay. SCIV is the best after those, though it plays a bit different in that you can whip in eight directions as well ass swing it around more freely, plus you can control your jumps in mid-air. This makes some parts, especially early o...

Re: Amiga musicians/C64 musicians

The "lowest common denominator" on Amiga was insanely high, it's almost hard to find bad sounding games compared to other contemporary platforms. Some of my fave composers: Chris Hülsbeck/Huelsbeck​ Rock 'n Roll (AMI), ​R-Type (AMI, different) Turrican II (AMI, 1991), Super Turrican (SNES, 1993), Tu...

Re: Why are there so many Amiga fans on this forum?

Thanks. Well it sounds like you and I are mostly on the same page then? I just think there's a point resolution-wise (and not upscaled low-res) where it's no longer pixel art, even if I can't say exactly when just going by the dimensions as it's also about the techniques used. Higher res art tends t...

Re: Why are there so many Amiga fans on this forum?

^Then you're gonna have to explain further. What you've said is that any graphics made up of pixels is pixel art, which is what the first point addresses. By that definition there is very little "pixel art" on the Amiga, as the vast majority of its games used retouched digitized graphics, gradiant f...

Re: Why are there so many Amiga fans on this forum?

No, you're not. See the first point, that's what you're saying. And I said it's technically right but there's more to it seen as a craft or art form.

Explains it a bit more in-depth. Although I think the last point goes too far.

Re: Why are there so many Amiga fans on this forum?

Well ok, sure. But pixel art to me is when it's easy to make out each individual pixel without even trying and when changing any single one for a sprite can make a noticeable difference.
