Pixel Art Map of the United States


Recommended Posts

Probably inspired by Super Mario 3 world maps. In fact, one of the worlds in that game was basically a map of Japan if I'm not mistaken.

I'd argue that the Alaska layout is somewhat misleading though. If it were summer 2019, it would be shrouded in smoke and flames scattered throughout.

Pixeldanc3r has created this great Super Mario World-inspired pixel art overworld map of the United States. I love how Canada and Mexico are obscured by clouds!

Because in games, clouds usually obscure areas of the map you haven't unlocked yet...

The Alaska map is way off, by the way.  It makes the northern slope look more populated than Fairbanks and Anchorage, and for some reason there are skyscrapers on the panhandle, which makes no sense at all.

There’s a skyscraper where I grew up in MA, and there are no skyscrapers there IRL at all. In fact, I think that’s supposed to be Providence, RI and this map is inaccurate. Off with their heads!

It's fun in it's own way but I like more the old medieval maps that make the places look like bad ass fantasy worlds. Like what the hell is even going on in the northern Norway in this map? And there is a devil sweeping with a broom just south of Finnmark? A giant ship eating vortex just off the coast of Norway also? And what is that huge lobster dangling a man in the west? It's like the strange lands of yore the black metal songs tell you about.
