Hey,

Can anyone vouch for http://www.cimawebdesign.com/app/platform-game-starter-pack/

It's around 2.50.. looks good but you know, I'd just want to be sure it's decent before I pay.

Thanks

I can't vouch for them, but they seem legit enough to me, I mean you could only try, it is after all only a few quid :P

@Patriick muhahaha, .. as a college student I earn no money I had to sell my xbox, phone and games to afford this computer (which, miraculously, I got for such a great price) and now selling my bike to buy the personal edition so hopefully one day I can get some form of revenue

Trust me, I know how that goes mate...

In that case, why not just attempt making your own platformer assets =]

@Patriick well I've made simple blocks (rectangles) to jump across etc and then replaced those sprites with some picture of the internet (http://tinyurl.com/p62s7ry) for instance.

How would you suggest (beginner over here btw) me to go about making my own assets?

Thanks

Well, if you want to use tiles in the form of pixel art instead of vector, I can pitch in and sort you some out...

I think I might even have some old tiles that look pretty good lying around in my cloud storage. *Goes to look*

Nope, I cannot seem to find them, but I don't mind helping out a little...

@Patriick I get the rough idea of pixel art etc. I suppose its just on a mass scale I probably get a bit nervous :P

What is the difference between Vector and Pixel? Why use one or the other?

Other than.. 'Pixels are pixels' and 'Vectors and vectors' Is one easier?

not really, I guess it depends on the person creating them, I just like the pixel look.

I can animate a lot better with pixel art than vector right now due to not having the tools I would need but other than that I would say, neither is easier, it probably takes about the same effort, vector animation would be easier than animating your sprites but the process of preparing the vector art to be animated and such is tedious at times. It most definitely pays off if you get things setup right though.

As for environment tiles, it's pretty much the same in my eyes, the vector art will look a lot smoother and such though

Honestly I haven't worked with vector art for a while now either =\ lol
