All of the screenshots I have taken of my game can be seen here:

I would appreciate any feedback.

These are wonderful! You have not just one, but two unique art styles (for an OHR game anyway).

On the map with the side perspective, where you are walking on platforms around a column, I notice that the characters feet are several pixels over the bottom of the platform. You can fix that easily by setting a footoffset in the settings for that map.

Maybe add some details to the water?

If you want to make the diagonal stripes which have a spacing of 3 pixels line up between neighbouring tiles, I would probably use map layers to achieve it, rather than having to make lots of variations of the tiles with the stripes offset by 3 different amounts. Create 3 versions of the stripes which cover the whole tile, so that they can line up at their edges, and place these on a bottom layer. On a higher layer, place triangular half-transparent tiles over the stripe times as needed.

Thanks for the tips. I also do have the foot offset changed, I guess I took these screenshots before I made that adjustment.

Can't really give any particular feedback, but I like it that you have your own unique style and the style's quality is good enough for me to play such a game.

It makes me think of the older Game boy games. Brings back some good memories.

I look forward to seeing more from you. Happy

Great, I'll be sure to share more once I get farther along.
