If you're going to use multicolour it should probably be anti-aliased.

looks a bit like sprite characters. some chars (already mentioned by others here) doesn't work for me, but all in all it's an awesome set.

Is the screenshot zoomed or is this multicolour? Why so blocky?

Most of us probably looked into the code for scrolltexts anyway...

Hmh, sorry, but imho readybility DOES matter.* I like the shapes, and all in all, it is good, but not very good, maybe it needs to be extended on the y-axis for improvement.

Besides what Didi, Kristian and others already mentioned, not only do g/p (<-- would be fun for a GxP logo lol) and q /a and u/v/w look pretty much the same but also the digits must really be meant as a joke showing "g" once again as 9 and b as 6 and you will definitely need one line more than a quadrangle to display an 8 if you want that SOMEbody takes it for an 8.

So what CreamD said, overhaul it, maybe with resolution on y axis +1.

*(old "from 80s till today nonstop sceners" will tell you quite the opposite: If the charset is unreadable, just speed it up and totally mess up the colors, scrolltexts are not supposed to be read, especially not by lamers whining about the charset, anyway...) ;)

I like this one. Need some work, but it fits my taste. I have created font with similar idea here http://csdb.dk/gfx/releases/58000/58058.gif

I would have worked more on some of the letters like b/6, g/q/9, s/5, z/2, y/4, 8, k & m. K and M because they are capitals while the others are small letters, 8 because it doesn't look like an 8 at all and the rest of the letters mentioned because they look too much like eachother.

A genereal comment not only for this font but also for a few of the other fonts is the choice to use a few big letters while the others are small (and opposite). Kinda ruins the experience for me.

I think this font got potential, but needs more work.

Hm... Z/2 and Y/4 look very similar to each other and I would have problems to read the 8.
