Pixel Art looks blurry - justking14 - Jan 8, 2015 07:41 PM

I've made several games for the iTunes store using mainly pixel art, but it always seems to look blurry once the app is running. Is there any way to make the pixels look sharper?

There are several different reasons it could look blurry. Expected scaling, unexpected scaling, filtering mode...

Generally, pixel art should be scaled with nearest neighbor filtering, and scaled to an integer-number-of-display-pixels per art-pixel. 1:1, 2:1, 3:1, etc

If you are using unity (your engine wasn't mentioned) make sure to check the advanced import options of your images.

You want to be using a point filter, and in advanced options, make sure your mip-mapping is turned (OFF) as this can mush things together for pixel work
