Recommendations! Game map as a border for my room?

I want to make my space look a little more interesting by printing a strip of connected level maps and using it as a border on the wall behind my desk.

Initially I thought Flashback would be cool but quickly realised that it's not as horizontal as I remember! http://amiga.lychesis.net/amiga/Unkn...vel01.tft1.png

Then I thought about Robocop but it looks heavily cropped (and I can't find a map anyway. Something like Bansee would be cool though - rotated 90 degrees of course. Suggestions appreciated - especially with sources

Xenon 2 has nice art too, or course.

Paramax is all horizontal and looks rather nice.

R-Type would be good. A quick Google search brings up full maps for Speccy and MSX, but a further dig about may throw up the Amiga version... Although, the Speccy version IS quite nice

Exolon is also a good choice. Again, this is the Speccy one, but it gives an idea:

The HOL has R-Type maps.

I can supply them without the watermarks if required.

Cherno, Akira, LuMan, CodyJarrett; all great suggestions - thank you! At first I was looking at the various images you've linked and was underwhelmed until I realised what was missing; scanlines! I'll add them myself and post back when I've figured this out fully
