12 pixel hero game
« on: June 18, 2010, 05:04:42 PM »
inspired by this thread and this little flash quiz, 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 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:

1)

2)

3)

 

Marvel:

1)

2)

3)

 
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

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.

Fr Universe
1)
2)
3)
4)
5)
6)
7)
8)
9)
10)
11)
12)

And a few Marvels

1)
2)


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.

1: Tomato

2: Afghan Ant

3: Is that me (or rather my, uh, alter ego)?

6: Mike B7

8: Unko Man

10 is correct, 9 isn't.

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

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.
