Pixel Art Sprites

Note: Many of these images are actually animated gifs, containing several frames. I have identified them with the word "Animated", even though they are not all intended as an animation.

Animated health bars: 40 and 100 pixels, 1 frame per pixel + 1 extra "empty" frame

Animated health circle: 24 + 1 frames

The dark UFO does not look good on a black background. The disk mostly disappears, leaving only what appears to be blue beams coming out of a floating blue blob. It might look better with a more interesting top.

Animated ring spaceship with (non-animated) minions
ring spaceship tiny spaceships

This spaceship was intended to carry two rings of smaller spaceships that revolved counterclockwise around it. It can, of course, be used for other purposes; I have just included this because I find if very annoying when I find an image that obviously was designed with something specific in mind but cannot work out what that purpose was. Both rings had room for the same number of minions (8) and revolved at the same speed (45 degrees in 6 frames).

A wormhole. It looks quite good on a black background. There is also an animated flash effect for when something falls in. The flash should be centered on the middle of the wormhole, where its final size covers the circle on the wormhole. Flashes of different solid colours work well with different things falling in.

Animated Explosions

The snowflake explosion has been moved to Procedurally Generated Images.
There is also another explosion under Miscellaneous Images.
