Edit:

Let's see, we've got 16x16 placeholders, and 12x12 placeholders.  So, that means we need...

6x6? Tongue

Yeah, I think we need all kinds of weird resolutions. 7x13, maybe? What kind of prejudice people have against odd resolutions?

Also, Ben made me LOL...

Thingy inspired by this thread (not 12x12 because evil npot):

Dev thread.

Cool! I love the wizards and warriors.  Seems there are more tile artists just arting for the sake of art than I had originally thought...

Actually odd number pixel width/height are nice for sprites (not so much for tiles, makes checkerboard dither hard) -- Sometimes it's nice to have a pixel row or column that's exactly in the center.

I went with 6x6 for the example tileset because it'll be included in a tool, and I wanted it to be clearly not copyright-able (6x6 was the smallest I could make stuff and still be identifiable). 6x6 = 36pixels @ 16 colors = 18 bytes.  One could trademark such a thing (like the Space Invaders' Aliens), but clearly it's fair use / fair dealings for 18 bytes of data...

Sure, here you go! Tongue



Back in the 80's computers came with a language to code in installed (usually BASIC, sometimes Lisp),
but in Windows 2000 Microsoft stopped including QBASIC. Many hobbyists were PO'd that they'd have to buy a compiler. To prove that you could make games with only the default software installed in Win2K (sound recorder, IE, notepad, paint) I made Snack-Man.

I didn't realize the walls were 11x11 until it was too late, so the ghosts and the snacker are 33px...  Everything's way over saturated primary colors because MSPaint, 1-off project, and me being new to pixel art. The dots are cookies and power pellet is a pill -- How else could you "eat ghosts" unless you were heavily medicated?

Why would anyone want to create a Pac-Man clone nowadays?  Well, it's a great project for learning A* path finding, esp. since you already know how the game rules are supposed to work.  Anyway, I had the image laying around for when I ever remake that old game in HTML5 as part of a 'Learn to code via Games' tutorial.

I may add stuff that's not as essential (like animation frames)

I'm a huge fan of this style of low res, prototyping sprite sheet, but people rarely do even simple 2-4 frame basic animations for any of the characters monsters.  This is generally ok for turn based games, but it can be hard to make a decent feeling platformer without some basic animation.

TLDR, please include animation frames if you're going to make some!

I extended some of the 12x12 placeholder tiles to create a placeholder tileset that's compatible with my HTML5 implementation of Marching-Squares.





The template pattern is included so folks can extend the tile gradient.  There's a transparent border to help with placement; Sometimes the similar tiles blend into one another.

I'm writing a blog post that explains the tile layout / tile selection logic.

I posted a link to it in the Tutorials sub-forum, as Marching Squares.  I'm glad to answer any questions there if the explanation doesn't cover it.
