Pixel-Based Table Hockey Players

Blades Of Steel NES Ice Hockey Sprites Pixel EA NHL Table Hockey Stiga

Seeing as video games killed the table hockey star*, why not incorporate video game imagery into table hockey? Player sprites from NES Ice Hockey or Blades of Steel or EA’s venerable NHL series could be turned into table hockey players (the flat 2D variety), creating a retro look for the ol’ table top.

The player sprites from NHL 94 (or any EA game from the 16-bit era) would probably be the most ideal for superimposing onto existing table hockey players. The sprites for NES Ice Hockey would probably need their own custom player shapes (as seen above).

I might have to tackle this fun idea one day. I just wish there was a proficient way of making DIY stickers, y’know?

*I don’t mean to brag, but I am of course referring to myself.
