Daily Deviation

Given 2009-09-04
Dire Straits by =StamatisGR. Quoting the suggester: A very nice composition with some wonderfull textures. StamatisGR has a great street eye and ofcourse he couldn't miss this wonderful scene of builders at work. ( Suggested by aR-Ka and Featured by bQw )

Ok here goes another critique but this time very but very different. I do not want to say anything more about Stamatis Photographic genius so this is going to be a rather alternate critique to what I see.

The image is like taken clearly form a platform computer game back form the 90s probably in an Amiga or Atari computer. Its nice to see such games going out in the market even now in 2009.

Graphics: Although in b&w the lines are clear the characters also clear and visible with the only con being the lack of different characters in the game. Even there though, the designers if the game put some effort to bring you the same type of characters in different sizes and skin tones. Finally the background looks nice and is interactive with the game according to each level.

Sound: Well the Dire straits soundtrack although not quite suitable for the game, is a nice and clever idea to bring forth. Do not forget we are a looking at a Retro title which couldn't be heard but with Retro music.

The Game: The goal of the game is obviously to finish painting the wall as quickly as you can avoiding falling equipment, by your coworkers, falling down, by the flashes the neighbor over the street uses to take photographs and much more surprises.

Hope you enjoy the game...
Well done once more....

Jesus Stam, sometimes you make me feel like hanging the camera up, grab a whiskey and just watch the show. Just gets better with every shot.

This is great. I was drawn in by the title (dire straits are the best thing to ever come out of my hometown :D) but I love the shot too. You did a really good job of capturing the separate body language of each of the workers :)

I know this looks like a video game, but why is the critique writer writing as though ist *is* a video game?

Also, is the bottom guy missing his right leg, or is he just crossing his legs, or what?
