So, my friend says Stinkoman is 8-bit and I say it is 16-bit, what do you think?

The reason I think it is 16-bit, it has paralax scrolling, generally a 16-bit thing. And the graphics look 16-bit. Now, I'm to play Donkey Kong.

Ummm... 12-bit?

Shouldn't this be a poll?

Well, since it's done in Flash, there are no constraints on number of colors, pixel size, etc, so really it's neither. The graphics are just made to look 8-bit. There are also a few 16-bit elements in the game, too, (such as the aforementioned parallax) but that's only to make the game more visually appealing. Videlectrix was shooting for an 8-bit look, but really it's neither, as Flash has enormous graphics capability. And the graphics do look 8-bit, not 16-bit, as almost nothing in the game is shaded, using mostly solid colors (Sonic the Hedgehog for Sega Genesis is 16-bit, and its graphics are far superior to Stinkoman 20X6's). Your friend is right.

Well NES is 8-bit and SNES is 16-bit. Looking at Super Mario 3 and Super Mario Land , I'd say its closer to 8-bit.

It looks like 16-bit colors on an 8-bit sprite.

So true... (Although that sprite is 8-bit)

definately 16 bit because there is a wider range of colors than an 8-bit, so i would say 16-bit. also the cutscenes have pretty intence animation for an 8-bit game. 16-bit.

Well since Stinkoman is a parody of Platform Hell games, it's pretty obvious it's atleast made to LOOK 8-Bit.

Technically, neither category is appropriate for this game. After all, as TheVideoGameFreak said, it is Flash, which supports full 24-bit color, compared to a limited color palette that older video game consoles had. Not to mention there is no limit to what you can do in Flash than to what you can do on an old video game console. The levels themselves seem to push 8-bit limitations, but the cutscenes appear to get into the 16-bit realm (especially with the shading on Stinkoman on the level title screens', wow!) The music actually could be considered 8-bit.

12-bit doesn't really exist. Though it's possible, technologically it wouldn't make sense to create a 12-bit system (don't want to get into detail).

Yeah, my tiny brain would probably explode if you did.

I think it's 16-Bit. Reasons: The large color palette, opacity, parallax scrolling, and Genesis-like sound. The 8-Bit Famicom game Lagrange Point came closest to these. So mentioning this, it's a bit of both.

I think Stinkoman is a 8-bit sprite with 16-bit colors.

It's kind of like SNK's Neo Geo Pocket Color. It has a 16-Bit processor, but have you seen any of its graphics?

Stinkoman is a pallet swap of mega man, and mega man is 8-bit, so stinkoman HAS to be 8-bit

I'd say 8-bit, or at least in the style of 8-bit.

Except no, because it's really neither one. It's in Flash, which is neither 8-bit nor 16-bit. It's an imitation of these old video games that seems to me to resemble 8-bit more than 16-bit, but we can't be dogmatic about which of those two it is since it's actually neither one.

Parallax Scrolling does exist on the NES actually. The final boss of Kirby's Adventure had Parallax Scrolling, and so did the Ice Cave in Battletoads.
Sorry to revive an "old" topic, but I felt that needed to be pointed out. :P

I think that the sprites might be 8-bit, while the backgrounds are 16-bit.
