Good job on the shades. I would want to see how you handled animations, there is nothing from the game that can be used?

Nothing really, it was very static in it's makeup and I think forcing something in there would look wierd...

For example... at the minute the slider knob is simply a round bubble, as they fetured heavily in the game, I toyed with the idea of having a trail of bubbles rise behind the knob as you move the slider upwards, but that's then going to leave a static line of bubbles behind as you go, which personally, I think looks craptacular myself.

As the background to the stack is also fairly solid not a lot I can do with that either...

Let me see if I can post a screengrab, seeing as I haven't bothered so far....

Ok, first up a segment of the game map, just a random snip from the overall map and secondly a snap of the 3 main windows, this dates back a few days, so things may have changed since then, only slightly mind...

I see what you mean, it's pretty solid looking though. Nice job With the map I noticed a bow, and the pos bar is an arrow... Looks like you might not have room for the though... What game is this? I feel like playing it all of a sudden.

The game is Underwurlde, a 1984 platformer, it's the sequel to Sabre Wulf, a game which I made a skin for about 6 years ago...

Sabre Wulf Skin

It's also a prequel for Knight Lore, a game that I have also skinned for, it's the 3d thing that has a forum thread elsewhere in here.

You'll need a decent ZX Spectrum emulator to play it, you can probably find one here ...ZX Spectrum Emulators, and a snapshot of the game to play it, that might be difficult as distribution of their games was always 'denied', however if you draw a blank I have a full set of their ROM's at home that I can dig out, point of fact I probably also still have an original set of cassettes as well for that matter!.

I should get Knight Lore finished and released and then the whole trilogy can be out...........

There is also a 4th game in the series..Pentagram, but that doesn't really fit in for me and never has, it's basically a remake of KnightLore, I have all the sprites dumped out of that and have toyed with the idea of doing a quick dirty Pentragram Remix of the KnightLore skin.....

Phew, enougth links for you?
