Pixel art mus be cartoonish? :-) Absurd.
Wolfenstein 3d pixel game 1992 year, cartoonish? Childisch?
No. It was NWC cartoon style.
Vampire is not crude but poisoned all poisoned hero looks similiar. Vampires of Jadame are crude yes, but its dark side.

OK no MM if you want but its NWC very good style.
And here are all HI cuties especially dragon. AND NON PRIMITIVE PIXEL ART! 480 x 640px is the same like MMVI-VIII.
