Painting of elements from The Legend of Zelda: Triforce of the Gods / A Link to the Past (1993) and Panel de Pon (1995) using a 3mmx3mm hand-drawn grid.
In this piece, Link, the player character is alone on a platform surrounded by spikes with a locked chest. He faces across the spikes towards the opposite platform where there sits a key which the
composition emphasises as both a goal and a solution but there is apparently no way to reach it. Ironically enough the display text to the bottom left quite cheerfully states that this is supposed to be an easy level - yet it appears to be anything but.
