Hi. Let me share with you my googling around in search of ways to smoothen voxels.
This feature seems possible in Goxel, a 3d voxel editor.

Another editor which seems useful to apply textures onto voxels is VoxelShop
This kind of tutorial may give you ideas to fit animated models into voxels.
I like also the repulsive looks that you may get by intersecting lots of ellipsoids to form the baddies body.

On the other hand using fewer spheres might be funny for the heroes' sprites like the mascot of Michelin tyres

This is bothering me. I'm sure I should know it but I don't!

Forgotten by who? :lol: It was one of the very first games I played on the Spectrum (16K!) and I still enjoy it every now and then. At higher levels life becomes very hard :mrgreen:

The speed compared to other games around that date was remarkable, very frantic when you learn how to navigate the maze.

Hikoki, why in the world would you want to smooth out voxels?!?

You could have something like this, brimming with style and charm

Nice artwork indeed.
I rather thought of something not so much square on everywhere that reminds you of first 3d from the 90's arcade machines or something lowpoly spiky like first PS1 Tekken, Rare works for the N64..
The smoothed out voxel guy I posted above looks a little like the blond baddies from Doom, maybe you could make characters with voxels and other rounded forms and smooth out the whole set in the end.
Another different style would be having characters with micheli-esque muscles in some places which give them a really fierce and nasty look. I took the horse and bunny pics from some academic pdf papers..dunno if such softwares are available to the public.
