Searching for a Castle Platformer Tileset

Last night I was talking with my wife about some really amazing music she was writing, and said “I need to make a game set in castle that is inspired by this music”.

The only trouble is, I know this game would be entirely too ambitious to complete (with the limited time I have available to me).  Even so, I decided to do a little looking around for inspiration and typed in “castle platformer” into Google image search.

I came across some nice tilesets and decided I would like to document them so I can find them again later, when I decide to make this game.

2D Environments by Brullov Studios

I found this geogeous tileset at made bybrullov studios for $29.99

Topdown Dungeon Tileset

I wasn’t planning on including any top-down assets in this post but this dungeon tileset deserved a little attention.
I love the way the hero is thrown back in that exaggerated hurt pose.  This set cost $10.

Seasonal Overworld + Dungeon

As long as we’re exploring top-down tileset, this season Overworld plus Dungeon is a great throwback to games like The Legend of Zelda: Link to the Past.
This tileset costs $14.00 USD, or you can just buy the overworld or dungeon for $8.00 each.
