The 7800 was supposed to deliver that resolution, but in color! 37 minutes ago, Defender_2600 said: 2 hours ago, zzip said: The pixels are too wide, it's difficult to add a lot of detail. Okay, zzip. That's a stylistic choice. Comparing Apples t0 Apples: 7800 left, NES right: 7800 looks way too stretched and harsh due to the 160-pixel width. The NES version is closer to the arcade look and more pleasing on the eyes. Everything in the 7800 version looks rather blocky, the ghost eyes are square. The NES version on the right has rounded eyes, more detail, dots that look like dots, not dashes. Again the higher res in the NES version is more pleasant looking. I know there is a 7800 Pac Man homebrew that does the game in 320, and it looks spectacular! but that didn't help the system during its commercial life, did it? 160 pixel modes were old-hat by the time the 7800 finally released and made 7800 games look dated compared to the competition. 1 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
