thats pretty good for ur first fake. I like how u made the life bars they look pretty cool. One thing i think the idea is to simple, you need to be more creative and u will be better. 2/5

Hmm... well you're right, its not that good, but its not all that bad either. But blood has almost been completely left out of the picture. Blood spewing out of Scorpion's body would be good, along with blood on Baraka's claw. There also should be some amount of blood dripping, or perhaps already on the arena's floor as well.

Also, the Scorpion sprite seems.. too stiff. And I'm not quite sure what that yellow piece is doing sticking up into the air off of Scorpion. Shadows would be good if you can add them, and Win tokens are absent.

But the main problem is that this is too simple, the fatality isn't exactly an original idea, so adding things to other parts of the fake could have been good. You could customize the background some, or do small sprite edits. Just little things that make the fake more 'your own'.

I'm not sure if you should make a remake of this fake or not. Though, if you want to, add some orignality and personality to it, and the other pointers in my post above.

But I suggest you make something new, think of your own, original, fatality idea and try to bring it to life. Nothing is impossible, even if you just have paint.

It isn't bad, But it's not good. You just need to put more time into it...and If your remake isn't good either... just make a reremake...if that even exists.

Well, it's very, very simple, which if ok for a first I guess.

- First off, those lifebars, I personally do not like what you've done with them i.e. making them purple/transparent (I think it's purple though because one of the red clouds doesn't show through grin). It doesn't make the lifebars stand out, which is kind of important, especially in the actual game, because you would find it harder to see how much life you have left.
- There are no win marks, which are kinda important.
- The screen has not gone dark for the fatality.
- There is an extreme lack of blood, I mean, he has been impaled! So he should have at least a few blood drops pouring from the wound to the floor.
- The blood that you did add is very basic, a few more colours would make this look much better.
- A couple of shadows would be nice smile.
- The cloth that should be hanging from Scorpion's belt is not hanging, lol. It's defying the laws of gravity!
- Scorpion is extremely stiff, which he shouldn't be, he should be arching his back, because he wouldn't have enough energy to hold himself rigid, after being impaled.
- The text in the lifebars is extremely boring, and is also quite small. It is text from the Genesis version?
- The blade doesn't quite look like it matches up with his arms.

Good things:

+ I guess it isn't as bad as some other first fakes I've seen.
+ Even though there is a lack of blood, you didn't just slap LOADS of blood drops on, thankfully smile.
+ The timer isn't saying something ridiculous, which is a common mistake with people (i.e. they set the timer in the nineties).
+ The number of wins has actually increased to 01.

Keep at them, looking forward to another.
