A downloadable asset

Buy Now$10.00 USD or more

This asset pack is perfect if you are planning to work on a SHMUP or Space Arcade game. It doesn’t matter if you need assets for a prototype or a commercial project – you are covered with the big amount of available elements (units, effects, terrain, buildings, UI…). If that is not enough, you can easily combine existing sprites & effects to create custom ones and on top of that, thanks to the limited by stylized color scheme you can easily create custom color variations.

============ Content ============

  • 25x spaceships 
    • Different sizes
  • 1x boss
    • Constructed from 3 parts with variations & destroyed state
  • 6x space bodies (planets/asteroids)
  • 2x Ground units (animated & variations)
  • 3x Ground buildings
  • 2x Defense buildings (animations)
  • Dynamic walls with gates
  • Terrain
    • Dynamic tiles & variations
    • Road tiles
  • Character Portraits
    • 9 different portraits + animated “TV noise” variation when a portrait is not available
  • UI Elements
    • Player portrait box
    • Player health bar pieces
    • Boss health bar
    • 3 variations of dialog boxes (full & 9-patch version included)
  • 20x Effects
    • Boosters, destroy FX, projectiles…
  • 7x Pickups
    • powerups & bonuses with variation

You can combine most of the sprites & effects together in-game to make unique animations and sprites. And with a bit more effort, you can even create your very own creations by combining existing pieces inside any graphics software to create new sprites.

NOTE: Font from the previews is not included!

=========== Format ===========

Asset pack includes 2 sprite-sheets with transparent & pink background

===== Customize the colors yourself =====

All assets are using only 4 colors and by changing any of the colors, you will get a new variation of the tileset while keeping the stylized look. Color options are not part of the package but you can do this easily with almost any graphics software or by using shaders in your game.

So I bought this pack a year ago and I've been making a game for the last two months. Publish it on steam soon.

I really enjoy using these assets!

I want to make another game using these assets, would it be possible to have another set of assets like these? A new paid pack ofc.

Some extra ground groups and/or terrain types?

As a pixel artist, I could make them myself, sure... but just I love the way you mix these low amount of colors.


Just pushed the game live : https://almostapixel.itch.io/defendor

Thank you for this pack! I added your name to the credits.

hello. just bought the set and they look great but the download is 2 png flat files. I thought they would be vectors or svgs. What do I with these 2 flat files?

Thank you for your purchase! It says in the description that you only receive 2 sprite-sheets and in what format. You can use them in multiple ways, depending on what you are working with and you can always slice them up and turn them into SVGs yourself if you need that.


Hi! I have published a new project with (only) your Asset pack :D thanks a lot for pubblishing it <3


Thank you for using my assets! I played the game and had a blast, I love how you marked dangerous buildings with red. Thank you for sharing this!

Thank you for the asset. Any advice on how I would split it in unity? 16x16? 32x32?


So below, what I've created using your great assets.
