Doom has always been one of my all-time favorite games, and a large part of that is thanks to the distinct art style. Imagine my surprise, then, when I stumbled across the latest series on Caleb Hystad's 8x8 Pixel blog.

I'm seriously contemplating purchasing a print of the Space Marine one. Darn you, Internet.

All characters should be redone in the style of Bubble Bobble for maximum cuteness

Hamza and I are huge fans of Paul Robertson's pixel art and animation, though the same could be said of everyone here at Destructoid, I suspect. He's one of the best. Trips to Robertson's blog are always a treat, albeit for d...more
