8-bit Assembler Artwork

Ξ November 16th, 2008 | → | ∇ code, Art |

I happened upon this project called dismap last week that generated fantastic artwork from 8-bit game carts.  The person behind the project, Ben Fry, disassembled the roms using a tool called NESrev, and then formatted the 6502 assembler instructions into readable columns.  To touch up the visuals, he then drew lines between all of the jmp source and destinations.  He also lead a companion project called Mario Soup, featuring tiles ripped from Super Mario Bros., and another project called distellamap, which featured assembly code from Atari 2600 games.  Prints are available for both dismap, and distellamap.
