PXLPNT.comYou had to be an 80s kids to really understand what early computer games really meant, and how their graphic style (which was obviously dictated by the available technology) would become imprinted in the mind of every single one of us who played them all through our childhood. Sabrewulf, Three Weeks In Paradise, Starquake, Manic Miner, Jet Set Willy, Saboteur… I could go for hours and hours, but there is actually a better way to illustrate how such titles touched our lives. And it comes in the shape of this new mobile app.

It is named PXLPNT, and it can be termed a graphic editor for the creation of pixel art. Yes, the kind of art all that any classic 8-bit game consisted of. This editor can be used right on your iPhone, and by choosing the colored blocks that apply then you will be able to design graphics akin to the ones featured in such games. And the fun is not stopping there, as you can proceed to have such design emblazoned on real life objects, and order them. If there is a better way to show others how fond you are of such a variety of art, please name it and I will eat my hat.

TheManInBlue.com/experiment/CubescapePixel art may not be everyone’s idea of fun, but for some, it’s awesome. Cubescape lets you (yes, you) create your very own isometric pixel art.

Never thought you could do that did you? So what exactly is pixel art, and why on earth would you want to make some of your own? Think of Space Invaders or Super Mario, but gone mad. Pixel art is certainly old school but what’s old school is officially cool again. Getting started is easy, just click the ‘Start Dropping Cubes’ icon, and you’re good to go. Choose from an array of colors, and if you don’t like what you’ve created, go ahead and blow them up. Then replay the action for fun. Save your creation for later. It can be a time consuming feat to create a true work of pixel art.
