A downloadable asset pack

Hello! This is a free sample of my pixel explosions pack.

This free pack includes five pixel art explosions. You can view them all below!

Pretty cool, right? All animations are designed to be played at 60 FPS, for maximum smoothness.

(Of course, if you need less FPS to match other assets in your game, you can always skip frames. I don't mind!)

Best of all, these animations are provided as both PNG sequences and spritesheets! That means that no matter what engine you're using, as long as you can play animations, they're compatible with your game!


This is just a free sample... The full pack includes 10 explosion styles with 4 color themes each. That's a whopping 40 explosions in all!


  • PNG files for all included assets
  • Spritesheets for all animations, with metadata files
  • Full list of animations
    • Round explosion (orange style)
    • Round vortex explosion (purple style)
    • Vertical explosion (blue style)
    • Small vertical explosion (green style)
    • X-plosion (orange style)

License: Attribution + no reselling the asset itself. Commercial and non-commercial use OK!



I have some other assets you might enjoy! They go great with platformer games.

Hi there! I recently used this Asset pack in my newest game! I figured I'd let you know and also show ya! This is amazing stuff and I really appreciate the work you put into it! :D

I also included your name in the credits!



This is awesome!


Love your art style dude! I'm using a few of these while I learn the basics, once I get the hang of things I'm going to sign up to the Patreon and get all of the other goodness, thanks for making a couple free :) really cool to work with decent assets as I'm getting my head around all of this coding business

Hey, thanks! Appreciate the kind words!

Thanks for the feedback on a free asset pack, where literally all I ask in return is a mention in the credits of your project.

Tons of audio, libraries, and art ask for attribution and nobody seems to complain. I don't get why there seems to be a pervasive expectation that pixel art is different or lesser than anything else used in games.


https://lafie-safie.itch.io/missile-pong I used these in Missile Pong. It works well!

Very nice! Since it's 2-player, I'll have to try it with a friend after the world calms down a little. ;)


I've just got into game designing and I tried using these as a reference.  It massively improved my animation skills so I must thank you dearly. These explosions are incredibly made and it's so nice of you to give them out to the public for free. Good job and thank you!


Thanks, I'm glad you like them! I've got more particle effect stuff in the works, so stay tuned!


Thanks very much for these five explosions, Well I hope to have more money for the effects of particles!! And I put you in your credits of my game!!!

No problem, I'm glad you like them and I hope they help make your game awesome!
