maybe a little too cluttered
engie and sniper are unoriginal art, not sure if I can enter with this.  but still, even if I cant, its not a bad menu screen (in my opinion at least)

I don't see anything wrong with taking sprites that are in the game, considering the work you've done yourself, but honestly, I preferred the idea of scout and demo. At least there was something interesting, mildly amusing going on, something to catch my attention.
And this, not only is it too cluttered, it's just boring. Doesn't mean it's bad, I just think the previous one was slightly better.
Also, check if the white stripe on the intel wouldn't interfere with the text.

Oh, and previous one had the action neatly going around the text area, whereas this one is all over. Maybe if you took out the sentry and intel it'd be a bit clearer at least.

Yeah, I liked the runner and deto one too, but I just cant seem to get the stickies to look right.  No matter what I do, they look really awkward.  Really not sure which one I like better at this point, I'm leaning toward this one but thats prob only bc I just made it.

However, I cant say this new one is completely boring though.  It's more similar to the two current in-game menu screens and has a kind of traditional feel.  Basically one main subject (the infiltraitor in this case) doing some action (shooting/stabbing) with other characters in the background doing a pose or minor action.  Thats how I viewed the other two and what inspired me for this one.  Just my opionion, I understand where you are coming from.

Yeah, taking the intel and sentry out is probably a good idea, conisdering I added them last minute and they dont really contribute too much.  Didnt really think about the menu text when I made it...

Also, I'm probably gonna make several menu screens, because I have a ton of old art I have just laying around that have never been used.  I'll choose the best one to submit later.

aka Andrea.

did you know that spinning stars work like this???

I've seen things you people wouldn't believe. execute_strings on fire off the shoulder of Overmars. I watched object-beams glitter in the dark near the room_goto_fix. All those moments will be lost in time, like tears...in...rain. Time to die.
