What if... The Chaos Engine (Bitmap Brothers, 1993) was released on the Spectrum? This is my fan art style loading screen.

I would be very interested in feedback on this screen. It's a new project I am trying. Elsewhere, the reception to my Chaos Engine pic has been very well recieved. :)

Andy, it has some nice details but also a large room for improvements. I can try to make a detailed review with technical suggestion, would you like it?

Andy, sorry but I don't like the image that much.
I guess it's the dithering that doesn't work.
Perhaps for this conversion you should go for solid shapes with minimal dithering?
Since each character is monochrome, it might work well.

I think it looks great. It really looks like the loading screen the game would have had had it appeared on the Spectrum back in the day. I totally disagree about the dithering not working - it all adds to the 'shady atmosphere'. Keep doing them as you do them Andy - far too many Spectrum pics on this site look like the result of dodgy scanning with no thought for the Speccy's attribute limitations.
