Any chance of having items for this tile?

There are games made with this asset?

this was long time one of the best selling pixrlart assets, so I guess so. I do not make games with this assets myself. 

i am currently working on a small private project with this great tileset

oh wow that looks amazing? 

How you made that background glow, is it a picture or postfix?

and because of you it looks amazing :)

the background is just a picture

Pleas create "Metroidvania Characters Tileset"!

Gorgeous assets! I just bought the bundle that includes this. So excited to make a game with them! 

I had a few questions though if that was okay. Forgive me for being such an amateur! I've been messing with the tiles in Game Maker Studio 2 and I just can't seem to get it to look like your examples. 

What is the background black that you're using that makes it look so amazingly retro?

What size room/viewport would you recommend for the best look?

Thanks so much! 


thanks for your message :)
the background color code is: #0B0E10, you can find it in the color-palette file.

the viewport really depends on your game, I usually do a multiple of 160x144 and then port it to 16:9 like. 320x288/ 640x etc.

hope that helps,



Thanks so much for your reply! I should have guessed it would be in the palette lol

I'm still having some trouble with the viewport and camera size.

I recreated one of your example rooms and added the character (your character recolored). 

The Room Size = 208x192

What size would you make the camera for this room? And in turn, the viewport?

that would be 320x180 :) (16:9 aspect ratio)

You're the best! Thanks so much for helping this amateur! 

no worries. just keep in mind that everyone was an amateur once :)

Hi Sam. I made a purchase. I love your awesome work! :)
I have a question about license.
I'm studying about game programming and I use github for hosting my product.
Can I store your product on my github public repository with my sourcecode ?
English is not my mother tongue, I hope that my English gets through to you.

Hey keytruck,

first: thank you! And don't worry your English is fine. It's also not my first language. 

As I understand the licenses none of them allowes redistribution of the work under your own name / github account. it is the same as putting music for a download that you don't own the creative rights for. 

this is not a legal consultation, I. no lawyer. 

you can however package assets in you game and distribute that as a full executable. 

I am not eager to sue people or take any actions in that direction. I would like that you can easily use my assets. but I would also not like it if my work is downloadable for free since I worked for it. I hope you understand. 

your github project is public to share it with others? they add a private option some time ago even for unpaid accounts. 

best regards


Hi Sam, Thank you for your kind answer! I understand. My github repository is private now, and I will continue to use it as private.

I hope someday I can publish my product as a full executable package :)

thanks you. 

sure you will keep up the work and believe in your dreams. they come true. 

I was wondering if you could do some EGA 16 color tilesets as I’m building a Tandy 1000 DOS game in 320x200 16 color format. I converted this to 16 colors on my own but I think you would be able to do a way better job color reducing it. 

hey ryanyoder. I would like to do that. but I got no time for that atm. sorry :(

No prob. I can do it myself. Awesome work man.


thanks a lot. 

you already did a great job! looking forward to see your game. 

Wow, that's epic. I made the purchase and i'm happy.

thanks a lot :) glad you like it!

do you have any pack with enemies? basic animations.

Hey, have a Look at the HUGE Pack

It includes enemy Animations since the newest Update. At this Moment there is No Single enemy Pack available. 

- Sam

Good night, I made the purchase. Congratulations for the good work!

thanks a Lot :)

Hello !

Sincerely beautiful work :-)
I really want to take this tileset but where are you in the creation of characters?


Hello and thanks. 

Right now there are no characters planned for this tileset. I may release characters as a single pack some time but there is also nothing to confirm yet. 

If you are looking for a size / style have a look at my HUGE set screenshots, the character size should match this set too (filling around a 24x24 square)  - just for size comparison  

I hope that helps!


Awesome work. =) Wish you the best, we are building a tiny mobile game with these great assets. Will send you the link, when finished.

thanks! looking forward to it! :)

Sam, Your Metroidvania tileset is great !

Wich enemy and main player asset would you recommend to use with this set ?

It would be great to have a full asset like the "super platformer asset", including main character and  3-4 enemy animation" 

Thanks, stephane


Hey swiart, glad you like it. right now there exist no characters for it. die to the lack of time (I am traveling right now) I couldn’t finish an asset set with characters. the plan is to finish it asap. but I can’t tell you when this will be. since I like them to match the asset set. so zement of characters should be around the same as my “Huge” asset pack. you can have a look for the dimensions. 

also the style for the characters would be different from the “huge” set once they are finished. but still combinable I hope. so there’s still a lot work to be done. but I can’t promise any release date for that yet. 

hope that answers your question :)

Sam, I have a question: Do you earn money if someone buys this or only BTW i really like this work!

hey, I earn a tiny bit. 1$ = 10%, 30cents + 6% paypal, 30% tax. what’s left from 1$ = 39 cents left. (USD), transfer to EUR, ~ 35 cents left. sad but true. So only gets 10% which is fine. But they also added a new payout fee, which I think was 3$ per payout. so I have to sell a lot to get at least a bit money out of it. 

oof, that isn't much! I hope you do more work in the future because it's really nice!

thanks :) yeah it's hard. Right now I take some time off (holidays). But will be back after that.

Really like this asset, are there any plans to expand it beyond 1.3?

thanks :)

right now it is completed as it is. But I am willing to make another update by time ~ just have none right now. 

Beautiful artwork, Sam, I like it very much!

Thanks a lot! Appreciate it ;)

Update 1.3 The Overworld is now live! 87 new Overworld Tiles :)


Update 1.2 Haunted Halloween is now live! 25 new Graveyard Tiles :)

Awesome indeed!

Your stuff is awesome!

Thank you so much! :) I try to keep on and publish more.

I love it! Thanks.

Glad you like it :)
This keeps me going. I really want to bring a few updates to this set, so that there will be even more in the future ;)
