    I can honestly live with the choppy parallax, at least they tried. Would have been better to replace the backgrounds with simpler ones that could be handled by sprites, but what can you do.

    There are rumors that the sides are customizable (and hence, removable). Without the ugly white things it's a much more acceptable ugly black box.

    I've always found the "slowly bring in the black border and then hide it again" approach to the problem more noticeable than just having the black bar for the duration of the level where the effect...

    No butt shake, no Monster World 4.

    You know... other than some parts where they go completely overboard with THREE freaking overlapping layers, the game doesn't have that much sprite flicker.

    Awesome video, but the Genpei Toma Den one is more interesting, the foreground is made entirely out of sprites :O

    Indeed, the game is all over the place. Some stages (like 5-2, as Sik mentioned) look really good, while others look super bland. They also have really poor continuity, a jumble of levels with no...

    I'm surprised it wasn't used a lot more than it was. I wouldn't say PCE games exploit it a lot, definitely not for multi-directional scrolling. Many games that use sprites for parallax do so as a...

    It's like if an artist purchased a canvas that survived from the Renaissance, printed out a 3D render, and then stapled it to said canvas. I don't get the point.

    For me the issue with Landstalker is not the lack of shadow per se, but the lack of shadow alongside the brutal jumping puzzles (which later in the game are also incredibly punishing).
