The mountains look like simple lines but the forests are ok.

Hi Tom.

The yellow looks a bit too bright in my opinion. Maybe you could tone it down a bit? Even the army shadows are a bit lost on that background.

I also don't like the background of the title text and edges of the biscuit like thing! Hehe it reminds me of the Plasmon biscuits they give to little kids and babies. :)

Keep up the good work.

About the yellow colour region why not try adding some opacity to it or applying a filter to see how it looks?

Gameplay-wise, the yellow and green continents are very open. Is there any chance of adding some impassables to their left sides? I noticed the use of trees in certain areas, so I suppose there's a game preserve in that area to help you out. ;)

I think both the mountain and jungle impassables need major work.

The compass rose really pops out - I'd make it much less opaque so it blends into the ocean. Also, the N, E, and S letters are not properly rotated or aligned with the actual direction. W seems fine.

I think the ocean could use more work too. It's very flat right now. I'd make it darker and, if possible, create a sense of depth to it.

its not really game reserve, its more of acctaul forest/tree areas - but the same principle lol

mountains yea sure, jungle i didnt think was so bad is it? i can always make another one but i didnt think that the jungle one was that much of a problem???
ZeakCytho wrote:The compass rose really pops out - I'd make it much less opaque so it blends into the ocean.

ok, maybe i could try sort of fading it into the ocean by trying a colour/gradiant overlay at a very low ocpacity? what ya think of that?

mmm - ill get onto that,
the "W" seems fine coz its italic i think :)
ZeakCytho wrote:I think the ocean could use more work too. It's very flat right now. I'd make it darker and, if possible, create a sense of depth to it.

darker yes,
do you think that a pattern would do it? with a lil bit more depth in it? would that help or make it look stupid?

ill try and include all of these in my next update - hopefully soon :)
thanks very much for all of your suggestions :D

I don't like the trees very much. They're just sticks with circles on them and don't seem to convey the spirit of the jungle of Madgascar at all. Also, they're not very pretty to look at.

Just setting the compass to a lower opacity (maybe 50%?) should solve the problem. A color overlay could work too, but it might not be necessary.

If the pattern is at a very low opacity, it could be good. If it's too strong, then it might just look stupid ;)
It's hard to say without actually seeing it, though.
