    Hi folks,

    Just wanted to let you know that work on Grubby Games' first title "Professor Fizzwizzle" is nearing completion. We've got a few screenshots posted on our site if you're interested in having a looksee.

    Screens: 1 2 3 4 (the fourth is a shot of the level editor)

    The object of the game is to make your way to the "exit tube" (indicated by the red arrow in the first screenshot) on each level, and help the Professor get back to his laboratory. There are various game objects (crates, barrels, magnets, pulleys, trampolines, powerups, RageBots, and more) that the player must interact with to achieve this goal.

    Feedback on the look of the game is of course welcomed, though I think I'm really posting this just to "share", and because I'm excited that things are nearing completion :) I'll certainly be posting again in a few weeks when the beta is ready to be torn apart!

    Ryan, the screenshots look great! I love the clean cartoony look. I'll look forward to the beta.

    Like the other posters, I like the graphics. It looked initially like a lode runner clone, but upon closer inspection it seems to have some additional interesting elements. I look forward to the beta.

    Cheers,
    Aaron

    Really nice cartoony style... 2 issues though... the realistic backgrounds do not really fit the look and feel of the game... and the main player sprite should stand out a tad more - atm the level blocks are a lot brighter and more "in your face" than the professor - might try a brigther and more natural skintone...

    Can't wait to see the beta... :)

    I love the look of screenshots 1 + 3. The background graphics in screenshot 2 don't seem to go with the foreground very well though.
