Pixel Vs Polygon

In this 2 player game, you and another take control of Pixel the Pixel or Polygon the Parrot. Each player can move in four directions and has a simple attack (sword-based melee for Pixel, canon-based shooting for Polygon). The duality at play was pitched to be having 2D art fight 3D models, but was instead turned into the ability to switch between console art styles. While most of the pixel art was completed before the deadline (Hurt/Loss Animations and Genesis/SNES Backgrounds still incomplete), it was not fully implemented. These are showcased in the Game Stills. Note: The aspect ratio of the play area was also never increased.
