How many times have ALL six bosses reappeared in one game? Rondo of Blood, Symphony of the Night, Portrait of Ruin....

And the X68000 one? I dunno. I still can't get too far into that one. :P

This is impressive.

The imagination of the perspective shows, even down to the stairs (who knew they were *that* narrow) and the blocks. I always figured Simon more well armed and armored, but only having the Axe really gives this a 1 vs the World feeling, especially when you consider how many critters Simon busted before getting to your pictured scene.

Each of the bosses look great...the Mummies look a little thin in the skin, but more realistic that way...GREAT Igor! Queen Medusa and the Vampire Bat look more sinister then I ever thought.

Great beat on the original game, and excellent coloring and shading overall. :clap:

The perspective on this is breathtaking. You really get a sense of scale looking at the hero and then going from the Frankenstein monster up. Beautiful work!

Glad you like the floating blocks - I wanted them to feel kinda surreal, like a literal interpretation of the old graphics. Thanks for the comment!

electronicron Featured By Owner Oct 25, 2012
The grim reaper alone is enough to give me nightmares. Maybe if they were set up in boss rush style, it would be more manageable. Wait, no...it would still be ridiculously hard.
