Tuesday’s update needed a bit of fixing, so I did that and added a few things. The newness includes a new Kunio-Kun sprite pose, 3 new sets of Mego WGSH head bubbles (Technos, Konami and Sega), mini-logos for Bebop, Rocksteady and Rolento and better palettes for the Lee Brothers. Again, be sure to check out the earlier, 1989-filled update if you missed it, because there’s a ton of stuff in there.

If this was the first gameplay screen you saw in a game called something like Boxxle or Stockroom Attendant Man, you probably wouldn’t be surprised.
However, if the game in question had an exciting name full of throwback pulp hero and promised interplanetary insanity, like for example Dash Galaxy in the Alien Asylum, this screen would be the first of many letdowns.

Some of my favorite Atari 2600 games!
Atlantis - Cosmic Ark - Frogger - Q*Bert - Space Invaders
The Samurai Kirby game from Kirby Super Star, SNES.
Bomb Man from the Bandai toy line based on the 90’s Mega Man animated series.The second series figures are tougher than the first series figures. The figure known as Bombman had a short distribution because of the Oklahoma bombing, and he was pulled from shelves and production.
I was lucky to have found this fella at the local hobby shop today. Even luckier to have paid a lot less than they go for online (sealed figures go as high as 60 bucks!).

BlackBoxPixels: This is something I’m working on. We just launched it on Kickstarter and need your help! If you’re interested in the project or my work, you can help us out by sharing/reblogging or making a pledge.
What is it? - We are creating an original homebrew NES game on an actual cartridge, accompanied by a documentary surrounding the development of the game as well as other game developers who use the 8-bit aesthetic, including the makers of Shovel Knight, Retro City Rampage, and others.
Back this project on Kickstarter.
