Colored 1-bit Nature
A downloadable asset pack
This asset pack contains approximately 40 nature sprites in a "colored 1-bit" style, perfect for creating lush scenery in a retro platformer. All of the sprites fit nicely on an 8x8 grid. It consists of:
- Giant tree (104 x 112px)
- 3 different monstera plants
- Palm tree
- Carrots and parsnips
- 5 different hanging vines
- Soil and grass ground tiles
- Various rocks and different sizes
- Columns, some broken, and some with vines
- Rope with vines growing round it
What the heck is colored 1-bit?
It's my way of describing this art style. It's an attempt to capture some of the feeling of the ZX Spectrum games I played as a child, but without the graphical limitations of it. So it's kind of like 1-bit in a way, in how the shapes are formed, but there's not restriction in the palette. There's only one rule: that no two colors are allowed to touch. So black is used as a buffer, although this rule is occasionally relaxed for shadows, as you'll see on the columns, for example.
Here are some other asset packs that are designed to work well with the Colored 1-bit Nature pack:
