Another Jumpman Forever WIP Screenshot

Posted by Davis Ray Sickmon, Jr (Creator)

OK, after the last screenshot, I couldn't leave the whole backgrounds issue alone.  So, after some tweaking:

Jumpman Forever "workbench" level based on "Easy Does It" from the original Jumpman: this is a test level only, not a real Jumpman Forever level.

 OK, much better.  Some of the elements are a little too subtle now (the signs and the lights), but over all I think it's a win - the game elements still "pop", while providing a bit more diversity in the background.  Plus, it still keeps that "chunky" feel I wanted. :-)

Now, to test it on a set of real levels.  Right now there are only three sets of background elements: black panels, dark grey panels, a set of space window tiles for the "Hull Breach" level that Red plays in, and one more set of light grey tiles.  I'll need to create more of 'em for the levels - I can place the elements in any order (or mix them), they aren't a large graphic file that covers the background, you can paint with 'em.  I need more diversity, though, plus I need to finish a new set of background tiles for one of Jumpman's levels, "Whiteout", which is going to be a really evil level :-)
