Vengeance 40 [ 1 decade ago ]

with all the retro boxes lately, I thought I should try my hand at one. So I present to you Metroid 1. I was going for a similar look to the official box, and due to the only materials i could get hold of being a few sprites, i had to improvise. Credit to Koopa for template. Time spent: 40 minutes approx.

If you say "wow this is plain" then I will murder you and your family.

it's not really a back temp... i just got a big box, same colour as the front, and copy/pasted some of the icons onto it. easy as 1-2-3.

Looks real!
BTW: I know my first two boxes sucked, and now I'll focus on satire boxes. The first one will be Command & Conquer 3: Tiberium Fart.

this is one of my fav metroid boxes on the site. It's very plain and simple; dont murder me, i like this one plain. With good render choices, good screenshots, this should easily be a HoF; hopefully.

Perhaps try putting screenborders, and possibly a font that stands out more; it's a little boring. But these are relativley small problems, nothing big. Big time fav, i really enjoyed this box.
