This one was a tough one to choose, but I went with Entry 2 due to liking the representation of the dark and light elements. To me, it was a beautiful and creative representation of the light element piercing through an area that's dominated by the dark element; this type of creativity is a good demonstration of the power and capability of the RPG Maker program. Having said that, Entry 1 wasn't bad, either, and that Entry may arguably be the best representation of the fire/lava element that I have seen on this round as Entry 1 looked very organized and felt very old-school.

Entry 2 had the strongest visual in the simplest presentation which is why i went with that one.
Entry 1 tho a good map felt a bit overcomplicated in what it was trying to 'tell' me.

I like pixel art style in 1 farrrr better (I do agree it gets overly complicated in some areas), but the composition, perspective, and theme of 2 is aesthetic af so I went with it. I mean look at how the blurred elements and fog draw your eye right to the focal points. Almost like being in a painting/a dream?

It was a pity that this match up was of two such utterly contrasting styles. Number two is an absolutely breathtaking piece of art and it immediately draws the eye (and lots of ahhs and oohs). The old school look of number one is sort of "primitive" compared to what you more commonly see nowadays but very nostalgic in its simplicity.

I thought about this match a lot though and eventually went with number one as I felt that this was more clearly a "dungeon" I know it was a very broad definition but I felt that the second one was more a "final destination" to be reached after you've fought your way through all the boggies and raided all the loot. In my mind, this is where you find the fabulous Glowing Mystical Dragon Repelling Great Sword of your esteemed ancestor.

So number one got my vote but, wow, number two is beautiful.
