Pixel Art Collection: 25 Magnificent 8-Bit Artworks


The history of gaming industry started to become exciting when 8-bit games were introduced – one of the best 8-bit artworks and games is the Super Mario. For many people, 8-bit gaming is a symbol of childhood as they grew up with these titles and it’s easy to come up with a list of their favorites. Contra, Super Mario, Mega Man, Castlevania, Tetris and Pokemon are only some of my personal favorites.

The nostalgic feeling of playing the 8 bit games is somewhat different when playing the modern games. Since modern games are far more advance and incredibly awesome in terms of graphics, the only shot of 8 bit games is the attack of simplicity in game plan. Nintendo Game Boy and NES are only some of the most widely used platforms that time and it’s really feel good to reminisce the old times playing such games, what say you?

The modern age gave us a lot of advancements in our technology. Games can be played now using a computer and internet. Now that there are lots of web games developed using HTML5 canvas, anyone can play these games wherever you are in the world – not to mention that there are a few games which use 8 bit artworks. Speaking of 8 bit artworks, we have gathered below a collection that might get you interested.

Here’s a collection of 8-Bit artworks and illustrations which combine modern life with pixelated characters of 80’s popular video games, movies and more. If you want to create your game whether it is 8 bit or the modern ones, you might want to utilize these game sprite sheets so that you can save a lot of time. If you don’t have ideas for your future game, check out this fantasy game art designs by Henning Ludvigsen.
