Hello I tried to create a new sprite for the ballgun. Do you like it?

It is as twisted as the consequences of its usage. Smile Very fitting!

Few suggestions, if you don't mind:
1) maybe get rid of outline on the balls or make it less opaque;
2) add a bit of shading to the balls;
3) avoid squeezing balls (OMG, please don't take this out of context) - which would require to relax the dispensing tube input;
4) make shadows and lights of the tube layer above the balls.

Interesting. Like that it sort of resembles part of a gumball dispenser.

Very nice to see work on this, because the current ballgun sprite badly needs replacement. This is very appreciated.

While this looks nice, I’m not sure if it’ll actually work out in the game (needs to be tested).

First of all, the ball colors don’t correspond to the real balls in the game. The real balls will also have one of 9 random colors.

Also, the ballgun always throws 51 balls but in the sprite there are much fewer balls. Not sure if it’ll matter for the player tho.

One suggestion I have it to make the ballgun partially opaque at the pipe and only the large ball container transparent to have the illusion of a large capacity.

But I should look how it’ll look ingame before I make further comments.
