8-bit video game wallpapers for iPhone and iPad

8 bit wallpaper splash

The oldies are the goodies, so they say. With nostalgia for the original games, 8-bit has become a niche genre that is still holding true for some retro style games and gamers. While the early days of Atari and Nintendo required 8-bit gaming, modern technology is very much past its blocky forebears. Yet, some modern classics stick to 8-bit roots.

Today’s Wallpapers of the Week selection features a mix of old and new. Where Mario is the classic 8-bit side scroller, modern games┬álike Minecraft keep the spirit alive, although as a stylistic choice, not a technological requirement.
