Tycoon/Oregon Trail/nostalgia: Crawfishing iOS game

Postby God at play » Fri Feb 17, 2012 3:48 pm

For almost the last 3 years, I've been working on and off doing pixel art on a side project, a nostalgic iOS game designed by a friend who grew up in the Bahamas. It's about to be finished :)

It's part tycoon game where you try to get money catching crawfish:

And it's part Oregon Trail in the sense that random events happen to you:

It's full of interesting and witty events, and some of them don't come up very often, relegating them to Easter egg status. :) The game is also quite fun once you get into it!

Looks good! My initial reaction is it needs a little more contrast though, felt like I was squinting to see the white text on light blue background.

Thanks for the crit! I was considering adding a gradient so the sky got darker up top, I think I'll do that now. Will make the BG a bit less boring as well

Looks good! I think adding a gradient will help as well. :)
