I'm working on a frogger clone called Highway Toad: http://mip-map.se/hwtoad/
My goal is to finish it by the end of this month and the code is coming together somewhat well (I'm not very good at it). Graphics and sound has to be made... but there is still time.
I have yet to decide on a good visual style for it. I've been experimenting with different ones:
- cartoonish mouse-drawn with shades
- cartoonish vector with shading
- photographs (yes, I started out with a photo of a frog, moving it around)
- Pixel blocks (squares with patterns)
I'm just having a hard time deciding on what to pick. From looking at the game, what do you think could be a suitable style.
