The clowns are still in the woods, but why and how did they get there? No time to answer those questions now, just run!

Final Fight: Philippe (Final Fight 2)
Technos: K.Clown and G.Terror (Combatribes)

All of the new sprites and that new background were added to the the fighter-scale image generator, where you can make graphics like the one at the top of this post!The sale on line art and pixel art prints is still going on, too!

Tomorrow’s the last day of the HorrorThon for this year and there is no theme. Anything is possible. Come back to see who shows up!

Five days of horror begin here!

The DangerTerrorHorrorThon 2017 begins with sprites from a game that’s been requested for a long, long time. Finally, IT’S TIME TO HUNT.

All-new fighter-scale sprites of Lynn Kurosawa, Dutch Schaefer, Predator Warrior, Predator Hunter and Alien Warrior have been added to the new Aliens vs. Predator gallery. Mini-logos for Alien, Predator, and Alien vs. Predator have been added to the movie mini-logo gallery. The Alien Stalker’s standing anim and a sprite of an Alien Defender were added to the AvP game sprites gallery.

All custom sprites and mini-logos have been added to the fighter-scale image generator, along with a new AvP background based on stage 2. The “Group 384×224 w/ writing” now has the 16 x 16 AvP arcade font, too.

Finally, a new print has been added to the shop:


From now until October 31st, all horror-related prints are on sale! 8×10 and 8 1/2 x 11 prints are $5.00 each and 17 x 11/14 x 11 prints $8.00 each!

The horror continues this Saturday with an update themed around the living dead!


Friends gettin’ Spooky:

Arcade Quartermaster just dropped an update with four new coin-op shrines: Schmeiser Robo, Superior Soldiers, Dragon Master and (perfect for the season) the Real Ghostbusters!

Prince of the Iron Fist will be playing Data East’s cult-classic beat ’em up “Night Slashers” this Friday night, so tune in there if you want to see zombies get pummeled to pieces!

I was just going to drop this preview for this year’s DangerTerrorHorrorThon, but felt the need to make some slight improvements to the Friday the 13th NES hero sprites:


They’re in the Movie-related custom sprite gallery and the main GFX Generator. I added a few more colors to their palettes, leading to a better 1958 Crystal Lake uniforms.

And now, Coming Attractions.

You have two weeks to make your arrangements. Spend them wisely.

This update could be done only at night, for it is filled with Vampires!

Custom Sprites
Castlevania: Dracula (original CV and SotN)
Alpha Denshi (NEW!): Kyros
Movies: Blacula/Mamuwalde and Selene (Underworld)
VanillawareVampire (Dragon’s Crown)

Mini-logos
Movies: Kyros
Movies: Blacula and Underworld

All of these bloodsuckers (and their mini-logos) have been added to the GFX Generator, where you can make your own screens and graphics, including one with that new Dracula’s lair background based on the original Castlevania.

You know, that’s a lot of vampires and tomorrow’s the last day for the DangerTerrorHorrorThon. I really hope someone shows up to make sure these nosferatu MF’ers don’t get out of control…

The original Castlevania turned 30 years old earlier this year, when I promised that you’d see more new tributes to that series during the DangerTerrorHorrorThon. Yesterday’s update featured a new sprite of Richter Belmont, but it’s time to pay homage to the original game.

The new sprites and a new background based on CastleVania Stage 5 have been added to the new GFX Generator, which you can use to make pics like the one near the top of this post.

If you think the DangerTerrorHorrorThon is done with you today, you better think again. There will be yet another installment tonight to satisfy your ghoulish appetites.

edit: mislabeled the Phantom Bat as Darkwing Bat (I was using the SotN sprites as extra reference), now fixed.

Here’s today’s batch of newness:

I was a bit cryptic in Friday’s update on whether the theme was over. Well, I had one more sprite to make. Ladies, gentlemen and screwheads, meet Ash Williams.


Be sure to check out VGJunk’s Halloween Spooktacular reviews, including today’s review of Capcom’s Vampire Savior! You’ll find a lot of far more obscure games lurking in his Halloween tag, so roll through it to find new picks for your own Halloween game list.

JustinGameDesign made a fun group of 8-bit sprites for the spooky season, with characters from a wide array of sources. He even put them into a nice deviantART gallery so you can see them all in the same spot!
