With over 200 unique sprites (no palette swaps counted) designed for scrolling shooters and platformers, make your games look stunning, as seen in the preview images!

-- UPDATES --
12 November 2017: This variety update contains assorted graphic assets. A new, green spaceship joins the red and blue ones; it comes with its own powerup and 8x8 ship icon. The new ship is Commodore 64 compliant, as well. Also included are red and blue potion bottles in both 8-bit and shaded 16-bit versions. Finally, a sampling of assets from The Retro Puzzle Pack, including fruits, dice, and additional tiles, rounds out this update. All of the sprites from this new pack are available as both 1-bit variants and full-color sprites; additionally, all sprites come in 8x8 and 16x16 sizes.
This update brings the total amount of unique sprites in this pack over 200! Thank you very much for your continued support; I look forward to seeing what you make with these assets.
29 July 2017: Sound Expansion I includes three new music pieces, all utilizing Famicom expansion chips. N E S Y X and Zero Respect both use the Famicom Disk System chip; Sunstrider features the MMC5. These pieces are all included in the existing packs which contain audio, and are also available as a standalone download. Take a listen to these new tracks here.
2 July 2017: This update comes with a scrolling shooter boss (one sprite) and a version of the Scrolling Shooter spritesheet formatted for use on the Commodore 64. Once again, these sprites will be incorporated into the existing packs and are also available as standalone downloads.
31 May 2017: Added the Modern Platformer Character spritesheet, which comes with one character (20 unique sprites) in both light and dark-outlined variants. If you already have the previous graphic pack, feel free to get the standalone update in the file "Modern Platformer Character.zip". Otherwise, it's been included in "The Game Creator's Pack" and "Graphic Pack" downloads.

I'm glad to hear that you want to use my music in an NES game! Since your team is building to authentic hardware, I can send you the NSF and FTM files if you need them; just give me an email address to send them. My music uses all five channels of the soundchip, so you might need to make changes to make room for your game's sound effects.
Thank you very much,
- Jonathan So
Sure thing! This is nape games email firstname.lastname@example.org and my personal email email@example.com you can use voy y for the files. Thank you very much!
I've successfully sent the NSF files through email to firstname.lastname@example.org, but I wasn't able to deliver it to your personal email. If you were not able to receive the messages successfully, please let me know.
