Later (>= 1992) Amiga games with good pixel art?

Which games you consider to have the best pixel art after 1992?
No image conversion from VGA here, except if it's really well done (not washed out).
No digitised graphics.

I found Waxworks graphics impressive and still charming

Disposable hero, looks like hand drawn (in places) and then transfered to pixels but very well done





Dragon stone, from Mark Jones another great job after Darkmere





Dungeons of Avalon II: The Island of Darkness
, looks like it was on a cover disk!





Elfmania, has ACE pixel art

With all respect, PGA european tour & Universe are digitised graphics, they are not pixel art.

Some more:

Elvira 2 looks like hand drawn, then transfered to pixels, very well done





Exile AGA found the graphics a lot better on AGA than ECS!





Eye of the Beholder 2 , an ok job tranferring from VGA






Fightin' Spirit
this is ECS screens, there is an AGA version too! Very close to what a Neo Geo game would look.

Hell-squad is digitised, and shadow fighter: some parts look like digitised (washed out in places). I don't really think shadow fighter's graphics to be there with the best.

I always thought T-Zero looked very nice, though the title screen is digitized, the in-game stuff seems not to be.

Pixel art also has the characteristic that uses low color count, up to 256, above that is not considered to be pixel art except some cases. Smoothing graphics and raise color count at 1000 is not pixel art.

I love graphics on maps from Cute Cats Magic Adventure (Android) even if they have more than 256 colors. My favourite is american native cat. I can't find any screenshots online but game is on Android Market.

Perihelion is amazing, with graphics by the super-talented Angeldawn (he didn't work in any other game, only demoscene productions)



I always thought Ruff'n'Tumble was pretty good, the good quality graphics helped me forget the game has absolutely no parallax or anything.



Mr. Nutz had a limited color palette but very well used


I always liked the style of Traps'n'Treasures, i like the detail put in tiny graphics.


Roadkill was pretty excellent too


There's more but I can't think of any.

The graphics quality that the OCS Amiga can produce in the right hands is shocking. In some cases they are close to 1990 coin op quality
