Hey guys. GREAT
job on this game. Seriously. It's amazing and way hilarious. When I watched that first trailer you put up awhile ago with the fixed camera and the old timey music, I laughed...the entire time. This is definitely among my top picks.
If you're going to keep working on the game I have a few suggestions. Take 'em or leave 'em. I'm really nit-picky with this kind of thing, so don't take me too seriously
- Inconsistent pixel size. Overall it's got a large retro pixel resolution, which is sweet (the green play field for example). But then there are things that use smaller pixels (the players, the hand cursor when you choose your team, the corner black spots of the soccer ball are really
small, etc.) It just stood out to me because it broke the low-retro-resolution illusion. I understand though because it would be tough to get the detail you wanted in the players at that large pixel resolution. So maybe you guys already addressed this, but personally I think that a consistent standard in pixel size would improve it.
- The icons in the thought bubbles when they sleep are kind of unclear, especially the soccer ball one because of the white bg of the bubble. Unless the different icons do different things, but it doesn't seem like they do. I think just some Zzzz's might be better/more clear.
- The old timey ragtime music from the trailer was hilarious. Even though soccer games never have in-game music I think you should put that back in the game. It was great.
I love everything else, and hope these suggestions don't come across as negative. Your in-game ads are great. Tiny Platypus Pimps on the Discovery Channel, yep, awesome.
