Super Aliens!

Because putting Super in front of everything is the Nintendo way!

Super Aliens is basically a remake of an old Famicom Disk System Aliens game that was never officially released.
Changes include a distinct lack of colour restrictions, parallax backgrounds (eventually), better physics, scrolling to the left and maybe more content.

This is mostly a fun little side project and I'd love to hear everyone's thoughts on it and the idea of reviving old games in general. Big Grin

Sprite shading still looks a bit.... lacking?

Put some more shading, definitely.

Got the engine playing right now, I'll work on that next. Genki ^_^
The backgrounds look really good.

Just the sprites need a touch up, though. They sorta clash with the style.
Along with facehuggers, it is a well known fact that the incredibly poppable eggs of Internecivus Raptus produce old timey game power ups as a metabolic byproduct. Tongue

How's this? I'm also thinking of giving Ripley darker hair... Since she did have darker hair... But something feels off... :/
Maybe I need to rework the whole palette and pull out the Aliens DVD again.

Ok! So I tried something:

Based on the colour scheme of her action figure:

Redid the eggs now as well. Genki ^_^

So satisfying. Tongue

The first stage is pretty much complete, just need to polish up a few things and bug check and then hopefully it'll be ok for a demo! Genki ^_^

Thinking of redoing the Aliens based on their AvP arcade sprites, and the Marine was just for fun. Tongue
