The wide pixels were part of the optional challenge.
The required resolution was made very clear.

I was a casual user around this site, few visits per week... now this challenge made me sign in...hard to pick only 3...if it keeps up like this I will be drawing pixels before new year.
Voting was a bit tough, but because some strong contenders "cheated" by having hires pixels in parts (or the whole picture) i ended up with four, so i only had to eliminate one....
I really loved the isometric street-scene with the cars, but unfortunately it does use hires for the sprites....
Shame on Ptoing for not pointing it out more clearly that c64 4-color/Multicolor mode actually has double-wide pixels and is 160x200, not 320x200!
Oh, whatever happened to the LBpixels pic? That looked really promising (Although at least the WIP still had some Hires!)
Wow, i don't know what i need to vote. Everything is nice!
That's what defines a great challenge; that people gets inspired to try something new.
Yes, really fun that so many went hardcore C64 and tried those nice wide pixels! :)
Good stuff this week.
I like that so many entries used wide pixels, even though it wasnt required. I never sprited on those old systems and didnt see wide pixels until I came here, but I gotta say wide pixels have a certain charm to them. Was a good challenge.
I cannot believe how many beautiful pieces i saw in this challenge!
