Where can I find pixel art explosions

Discussion of tools and resources for game developers

Post » Wed Aug 24, 2016 11:42 am

Hey guys,

need a couple of explosion assets for a game I'm working on but can't seem to find a place to purchase pixel art focused FX. I'm looking particularly for explosions, ballistics, spacey explosions with plasma and the like.

Can anyone spare a moment to point me at a good site for buying pixel art FX or point me to a good pixel art explosion bundle please?

Thanks! Adam :D

Have you tried the particle object yet?
If its a pixel art game, using a single pixel can give a nice effect.

Thanks for the response, I've tried it but not to great effect, it always looks like I just created a bunch of balls and they flew away.... Can you point me at any tuts or bundles for that kinda thing?

Check the store:

You should find some example you want to replicate first.

You can tweak it in many different ways.
