Heiankyo Alien captured my attention this month, and I was inspired to make some Perler bead sprites of our intrepid digging hero and his ancient alien enemies.
My favorite sprites are those that translate well into bead art, and the original Game Boy has them in spades. Technical limitations forced developers to create characters that were simple in design, yet instantly recognizable, with as much personality as could be crammed into four shades of grey. Heiankyo Alien is an excellent example of Game Boy sprites done right.
Jack likes to mod consoles in their spare time and, while there have been casualties, I have yet to mangle a Game Boy beyond repair. Check Jack out @GameboyCruller
