I grabbed the amazing Humble Bundle deal just to get this and believe me, it was the best $12 I ever spent.Good Points
-Sprites are dead easy to create, and the animated preview window is a godsend.
-I can make decent RPG Maker Ace faces with this programme, unlike the hilariously ugly ones in the default Ace generator.
-Tutorials are easy to follow, although it might take a while to get the hang of Move Pixels and Move Frames.
-Instant hair and clothing recolours in just a few clicks!
-Easy zoom in and out feature, which is essential when you're dealing with tiny sprites.
-Pixel editing feature that allow you to make changes to existing sprites.
-I don't use RPG Maker XP as much, but I've tested the tileset feature and it is serviceable.
-Ability to add your own generator parts and choose the frames needed, although sometimes it doesn't work.
-Developer is constantly upgrading the software and even adding new generator parts (I noticed at least one update since June 2014).
-Runs smooth on my eight-year-old Windows XP laptop.Not So Good Points
-I wish there were more variety of clothing from different periods, such as modern, futuristic, wild west, noir etc.
-I was disappointed there wasn't a tileset creation feature for Ace.
-Every part of a sprite (hair, cloak, body) has its own layer, and it can be a pain to move each around until they have the correct priority. For instance, it took me ages to have a cloak display properly, with the body section between the cloak and the head section (so that the cloak does not overlap the chin). It can be done. Just takes two minutes of dragging and dropping.Verdict
: Get it! I can never be an artist but this tool allows me to create a decent sprite in five minutes. Valuable money and time saver.
