Classic NES Game Posters
“I was inspired like many kids of the 80’s by the visual art and entertainment that Nintendo brought to me as a kid. I sent many hours trying to shoot down ducks and warp to new levels all thanks to my NES. These posters are inspired by some of my favorite games, missing are Tecmo Super Bowl, Donkey Kong, Metroid, Contra and Kung Fu. “
Mega Man Retron Box Art by Harry Waters
Harry takes the “we didn’t actually play this game at all” vibe of the fat Mega Man era and adds some digital rendering to make it look like it’s been buried in the bottom of a box in your closet for the past 20 years. Smells like moth balls and misconception!
Ode to the High Score
By Ian Brooks
O Top Scorers, O High Scorers!
You brave space, time, and dimly lit bar
To space-spar with czars in ships near bizarre
Harken to you, Scorers of Up High!
The lights you illuminate as the numbers they correlate
The enemies you topple, their masters you throttle
O Master of the Score,
You do battle with the machine to free unknown damsels
The commands you demand with no intention of cancel
O High Scorer, our Pixel Explorer,
The mazes you navigate while hidden secrets you activate
String combos you calculate to rain on targets you assassinate
O Courageous Scorers, the buttons your mast, the winds your controller!
You fear no time limit, pitfall, nor border
The walls you ignore as your course bores you forward
O Top Scorers, with numbers that soar
There is no floating head too large, nor galaxy too far
The High Score you unlocked in my heart, the moment you first pressed Start.
A Little Bit On The Retro Video Game Poster Side: Creative studio Robotandspark made these Super Mario Land, Legend of Zelda, and Street Fighter 2: Championship Edition posters for the first ever Middle East Comic convention.
We sold quite a few of the prints, but the M. Bison Street Fighter 2 was probably the most popular and we had many requests for other characters from the series, so definitely watch out for the complete line-up featuring messieurs Zangief, Ken, Ryu, Dhalsim, Blanka, E. Honda, Guile, Chun Li, Balrog, Vega and Sagat.
There is a still a small amount of these limited edition prints available, so drop us an email or head to our online store to see if you can pick up a piece of retro inspired video game folklore!
Those Super Mario Land and SF2:CE jumpoffs need to be mine NOW.
Check out Robotandspark to peep the prints in higher resolution.
