Caedes: Arcade Pinball - The Crypt, Layout

Photobucket

The first of several 'Pinball Dungeons' in Caedes is known as The Crypt, it encompasses the monsters, objectives, bonus rooms and secrets standard to each of the dungeons. Designed as an introductory table the challenges are of an easier difficulty than the later dungeons.

Each dungeon is designed in Illustrator and then sprited and detailed in Photoshop. Each Illustrator blueprint contains five separate layers consisting of boundaries, flat textures, switches/portals/objects, enemies/paths and the currency markers. As you can see the right side is left blank for the HUD, which is completed separately from the table design. The scale value is 640 x 960, a standard television aspect ratio.

It's been a blast designing these tables!
