1 download1%20download11 comments1%20comments181 glyphs81%20glyphs81Recreation of the pixel font from Taito's "Crazy Balloon" (1980).

Fundamentally very similar to "Space Invaders" (1978), but with notable differences in the "K" and "0" (same as Exidy's "Rip Cord"), as well as "A", "G", "7" and some of the punctuation marks.

This font was reused in Taito's "Space Seeker" (1981) with only a minor variation in the copyright symbol.

Only the characters present in the game's tile set have been included.Recreation%20of%20the%20pixel%20font%20from%20Taito%27s%20%22Crazy%20Balloon%22%20%281980%29.%0D%0A%0D%0AFundamentally%20very%20similar%20to%20%22Space%20Invaders%22%20%281978%29%2C%20but%20with%20notable%20differences%20in%20the%20%22K%22%20and%20%220%22%20%28same%20as%20Exidy%27s%20%22Rip%20Cord%22%29%2C%20as%20well%20as%20%22A%22%2C%20%22G%22%2C%20%227%22%20and%20some%20of%20the%20punctuation%20marks.%0D%0A%0D%0AThis%20font%20was%20reused%20in%20Taito%27s%20%22Space%20Seeker%22%20%281981%29%20with%20only%20a%20minor%20variation%20in%20the%20copyright%20symbol.%0D%0A%0D%0AOnly%20the%20characters%20present%20in%20the%20game%27s%20tile%20set%20have%20been%20included.

The outcome of my first Graphic Design project at the University of the West of England. This typeface is based on the designated theme of 'Evil'. As the project developed I began to move away from the rather stereotypical 'dark' imagery commonly associated with evil and approached the topic in a different, light-hearted manner. This led me onto the theme of villainy in popular culture, from film to video games. The classic ghosts of the arcade game Pac-Man are designed with such consideration - they are required to communicate both character and threat to the player, whilst still falling within the limitations of the 1980s hardware. As a result, these creatures personify the concept of 'evil stripped down to its essential forms.'UPDATE%3A%20I%20have%20altered%20the%20letters%20%27U%27%2C%20%27H%27%20and%20%27X%27%20in%20order%20to%20increase%20legibility.%20-%2014%2F11%2F11%0D%0A%0D%0AThe%20outcome%20of%20my%20first%20Graphic%20Design%20project%20at%20the%20University%20of%20the%20West%20of%20England.%20This%20typeface%20is%20based%20on%20the%20designated%20theme%20of%20%27Evil%27.%20As%20the%20project%20developed%20I%20began%20to%20move%20away%20from%20the%20rather%20stereotypical%20%27dark%27%20imagery%20commonly%20associated%20with%20evil%20and%20approached%20the%20topic%20in%20a%20different%2C%20light-hearted%20manner.%20This%20led%20me%20onto%20the%20theme%20of%20villainy%20in%20popular%20culture%2C%20from%20film%20to%20video%20games.%20The%20classic%20ghosts%20of%20the%20arcade%20game%20Pac-Man%20are%20designed%20with%20such%20consideration%20-%20they%20are%20required%20to%20communicate%20both%20character%20and%20threat%20to%20the%20player%2C%20whilst%20still%20falling%20within%20the%20limitations%20of%20the%201980s%20hardware.%20As%20a%20result%2C%20these%20creatures%20personify%20the%20concept%20of%20%27evil%20stripped%20down%20to%20its%20essential%20forms.%27
