Life was simpler when everything was just pixels. 8-bit is a tribute to some classic video games from the Nintendo era. The artist behind this wonderfully nostalgic collection is John Stewart from New Jersey.

There are tons more of these so check them out at John’s deviantART page. If you like what you see give him a shout on Twitter @cyantre


  • I love 8-bit art. Always cool to see what can be created with a limited amount of detail. Might also be why Code Monkeys http://g4tv.com/codemonkeys/index.html is one of my favorite cartoons as of late. Great find!

    • I think I might have to download some of the classics onto the Wii.

      • For sure. I've downloaded Super Mario Bros., Super Mario Bros. Lost Levels and Super Mario World, plus others. They are more than worth it!
