Yet another retro tileset (probably my last retro-style set for a while). This one is a port/remake/whatchamacallit of the graphics used in an old 16-color shareware DOS game called "Secret Agent", but all the tiles were redrawn from scratch by me in order to fit KS' 24x24 format.



Some KS levels by me:

Now that you mention it, this set also resembles the look of the first Commander Keen games to some degree. Good times  8)

Here's the actual game screen I used as a reference for my demo pic:



I think it'd be possible to port some of the levels from the original game to KS, especially by using KS+ OCOs to customize the enemies and traps.

Oh, and I forgot to mention this: feel free to edit the set and/or copy any of the tiles onto your own tilesets. The reason it doesn't say "KS Use/Edit OK" in the credits bar is simply because I ran out of space there :P2

Not to mention Duke Nukem 1 and 2, the games that came before Secret Agent. :) Or after... or whatever. :P

Heya folks! It's been quite a while since I last posted anything here. Time for some new and exciting stuff.



A random tileset I made with absolutely no prior planning nor any art direction whatsoever, surprising no one. The clouds are made of white squares for some reason. I added the pears at the last minute. Pears are good for you. Maybe I should add them to the list of possible sequels to Tomatoes, right after lemons and celery...


Yet another CGA 4-color retro set I started some time ago but never used for anything. I went with the yellow-red-green palette this time. The background in the demo pic is a gradient I used previously in some of my retro-themed levels such as The Dithered Temple.

You'll find the actual tilesets below in the "attached files" area. As usual, feel free to use/remix them in your levels.
