Hi,

after many,well, years I finally manged to clean up my computer room and found some things that really gave me a smile.
When I was 12, I stood in the entrance hall of the pub in our village with pen & paper, trying to get the pixels from the arcades.
When I was 14, I sat in my room in front of my Atari with pen & paper, trying to get the pixels from the TV set.
Now I'm 40 and sit in front my PC scanning that stuff into mega bytes, hehe.

So who can name the games these are taken from? Some are easy, so will be hard I think.
And don't be confused by all the hexadecimal numbers written everywhere, I was and still am a coder as you know :-)

Answer format: Sprite Set Number/Column Number/Row Number/Game.

i am spotting... Pitfall 2, not sure about HERO, Warhawk? but the middle is more harder with the boulder...

And Activision seems to recycle some sprites ;)

The left one looks like Pitfall II, the middle like H.E.R.O. The right one I do not recognize, sorry.

Each sheet contains multiple sources :-)

Correct so far, but not complete by far: 1 - Pitfall II, 2 - Hero, 3 - Warhawk (excellent Heaven), spot the animation arrows!
