Title: 12 pixel hero game
Post by: Glitch Girl on June 18, 2010, 05:04:42 PM
inspired by this thread (http://freedomreborn.net/forums/index.php?topic=53133.msg719932;) and this little flash quiz (http://stkp.com/FF/ARCHIVE/12P/12pixeltest.swf), I thought it might be fun to try a few of these ourselves and see what happens.

Basic idea: convey a known hero character in 12 pixels and see if people can guess who it is. 

I made a basic template (http://stkp.com/FF/ARCHIVE/12P/12pixelhero_template.gif) and used only the web216 palette.  I reserved #333333 for the grid lines, but the rest were okay to use.  The only hint you get is company, but these first ones should be easy.     

DC:

2) (http://stkp.com/FF/ARCHIVE/12P/dc2.gif)

3) (http://stkp.com/FF/ARCHIVE/12P/dc1.gif)

 

Marvel:

2) (http://stkp.com/FF/ARCHIVE/12P/marvel2.gif)

3) (http://stkp.com/FF/ARCHIVE/12P/marvel3.gif)

 
BTW: everyone is welcome to post their own to see if anyone can guess as well.

kkhohoho, you got the first 4 correct, but I didn't mean Marvel3 to be Deadpool - the red and black would be reversed for him I think.  No, that's someone else from the Marvel U.

Not sure about Marvel 2, but Marvel 3 looks like Giantman to me.

I can't figure out Marvel #2 either, but I think Marvel #3 is Ant-Man.  (Could be Giant-Man, too, Pod...)

Still no clue on #2, but #3 has to be Colossus.  (Or not...)

Marvel #2 = Thor. I agree with Alaric on Marvel #3
Title: Re: 12 pixel hero game
Post by: Glitch Girl on June 18, 2010, 08:20:01 PM
Alaric and Prev got #3, and Prev got #2.  And that's the last of 'em!

Anyone want to try their hand at it?

I was bored for a few minutes, so I made a slew of these for you guys, mainly of FR patrons. I don't REALLY expect you to get all these (I probably wouldn't, and I'm an avatar who... er... fanboy.) but I am curious how many you do get.

I should note, before anyone kills me for putting X over Y, that there's no real logic behind the choices of avatars, other then I happened across them going through my ff collection.

9 =  :kingbe2:

10 = Benton Grey

10 is correct, 9 isn't.

Hint for 10: This hero was designed by a real Casanova

Post by: Glitch Girl on June 25, 2010, 05:54:00 PM
Nice one Tomato, sorry I got here to late to play.  9's got me stumped though (I thought King-Be too) but most of the rest are very recognizable.  Nice job.

Post by: Mr. Hamrick on June 25, 2010, 06:14:12 PM
would 9 be "Black Casanova"?
Title: Re: 12 pixel hero game
Post by: Tomato on June 25, 2010, 10:08:16 PM
no, but he was the Casanova referred to in the last hint:

Hint- Was skinned by a vegetable

Ooh! Ooh! Pick me! Pick me!!

(Jumps up and down waving his hand wildly in the air. Notices everyone staring at him. Stops jumping.)

Uh, right. Would that be... Yellow Lantern?
