Metal Slug Pixel Art
Post Apocalyptic Background Pixel Art from SNK’s original 1996 Neo-Geo title Metal Slug, the run-and-gun classic. Apologies if you’re having to scroll your browser to the right (I am too), the thing about Pixel Art is it can’t really be scaled, it’s drawn for one size and one size only, and it’d be severely blasphemous to rescale this superb example!
So here’s a lush part of Metal Slug level one in all it’s limited palette glory, but hang on a minute where’s all the rest of the game art? well, that’s the other reason for the post, this image comes via The Video Game Atlas http://www.vgmaps.com/ a truly amazing resource if you are into the art of old school games. Loads of wicked stuff there, and worth visit for so many reason’s – Game Title Screens for example http://ow.ly/tHqJ great Typography.
Thanks Dan for the lead on this…
