Side-Scroller Template Add-On1

Back to my Shop-page

About this Assetpack:

This is a massive add-on for the side-scroller character template. It enhances every aspect of the original and  you can prototype even more animations with it!

The really tedious setup-work for animations is done and it’s usable for prototyping right out of the box.

This Add-on comes with an enhanced moveset and crouch animations for all combat animations of the original template. On top of that there are interaction animations, for pulling levers, pushing blocks and much more.

The character itself comes as gray scale version or in a 3-color NES-style.

If you got basic art skills, due to it’s simple design and multitude of frames this template can get easily enhanced for specific needs, frames can be rearranged and slightly edited to create completely new moves.

If you have more artistic skills, or want to bring an artist in your project later on, the gray scale image can serve as solid base for adding details or your own character-design on top of it, while saving production time and iteration time, because you'll know exactly what frames your project needs.

This Set Includes:

Additional Note:

While the sprites use NES aesthetics, this asset pack is not optimized for the NES as console. In case of real NES development sprites have to be cut and/or optimized to fit in the hardware limitations.
