Wip with all the 5 levels avi_0001.avi I'll take a closer look at the entire video a bit later, but here are some preliminary comments: The pacing of the starting jingle is much too fast (as compared to the original arcade). The last "down-scale" of notes sounds a little distorted, as if the tones' frequency is heavily modulated. The instrument sounds less music and more like "bleepy" sound fx. The "auto-shooting" is a lot slower than in the arcade, where it shoots three bullets in rapid succession at a time. I like the "auto-shot" feature, but I still think it should throw three quick bullets on each burst. The player shooting sound effect sounds a little hollow, like from "Pong." It would be ideal if you could replicate the futuristic "laser blast" sound of the arcade. After all, the player is piloting a time machine from the future. The green sky in the 1940 stage is a bit weird, and so is the fuchsia sky of 1982. I do not think it is necessary to change the sky colour on each stage, and worse on the Intellivision, who's colour palette is very limited (and weird). The "clouds" (asteroids?) in the 2001 stage look much too orange. Perhaps they would look better using a different colour? Ignore the previous two: I just checked out a video of the original arcade game and the colours seem to match. The ones on the Intellivision are still too stark and weird, but I guess we could expect that. It would be worth checking out on a CRT to see how the sprites look against the background, in context. That's it for now. Looking (and sounding) good, although still needs some work. Great job so far! 👍 -dZ. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
