Nice Kunpel! :)
You did forgot the "double wide pixel" rule though. So you competing with Grok in the single pixel wide competition. (laugh)

Lovely purple tentacle! Both in sizing to a character and in it's attack animation. And of course it's doublewide!

@Cassiebsg: Amélie is right, I did. The only thing not double wide is the speech font ;)

Man, this is hard...

Alas, that's what I came up with:



Hope it's recognizable.

If I find some more time, I'll try and animate him...

Awsome work.
You're telling me :shocked: Mine is taking a bit longer to put together than expected, if it gets done at all, and it looks like crap right now compared to what the others have posted so far.

Well, given the time allotted I figure this is as good as it's gonna get. Might've picked too tricky a subject to attempt for this but whatevs.

JUDGING
DISCLAIMER: All the entries were amazing. This was horrible and I did not want to do it.


THIRD PLACE For sticking beautifully to the restrictions and giving us a chaacter we can instantly rcognise: MAD


SECOND PLACE For sticking beautifully to the restrictions, for using the available colours in an innovative way and recreating two perfect OC babus we can all recognise: SCAVENGER


FIRST PLACE For the added chutzpah of taking on a character actually FROM Maniac Mansion, sticking beautifully to the restrictions  and ending up with something that, in my opinion, improves on the original: TABATA!!!

So take it away, Tabata. This decision was rough on me and I'm going to go and cry now

With such a lot of really good entries I didn't even think to be placed near the stairs
and now this (no wonder you went to cry after posting)  :wink:
But nonetheless: Thank you veeery much :-*

Now I'll try to find a new theme for the next round :grin:

Aw man, I wasn't expecting to be in the running for winning! Everyone's entries were SO GOOD! You all did really well! I will wear my trophy with pride.

Tabata's entry really was stellar, they should have definitely done the art for the original Maniac Mansion. It looks too good to be using such a restrictive form!

Somehow failed to notice the lovely entries from Tabata and Jim Reed. Probably was too busy posting my own crap...
Great stuff all around.

Congrats to the very diserving winner!

Thanks for this great jam, Eggie.
