A little Amiga 500 compatible 16 color palette (12-bit) that I have been playing around with for a while; more or less aimed at (space/tech) Shoot 'Em Up's  and similar stuff.

As well as a study in various sprite/bobs themes (mostly 16x16 pixels).

Paradoxically the quality of this spritesheet has me a little annoyed because all I have to offer in feedback is that it's quintessentially Amiga-esque, or Apogee-esque. "What does it mean when something has an Amiga aesthetic?" "You know it when you see it." The inability to articulate is frustrating in setting up a case study. "It has greys and strongly desaturated colours and lots of anti-aliasing!" "So does Metal Slug."

Ironically one of my favourite Amiga sprites here is the boss ship because the blue and red back-lighting is strongly reminiscent of that of the boss' space pod from Sonic 3, a Mega Drive game.

The player ships escalate in bulk and jet propulsion. Are they selectable from the start of this hypothetical game [weak/fast, medium, strong/slow] or part of an upgrade tree?

Instantly recognised your style. Looks very Amiga-ish. Nice work!

Lovely palette with this distinct Amiga moody taste and RGB crunchy bites !

Good stuff. Love the colours. Getting some Tyrian 2000 vibes from this.
