blaZeon: the bio-cyborg challenge font


recreation of the pixel font from atlus' port of blaZeon: the bio-cyborg challenge (1992) on the SNES.

compared to the arcade version, the port has a complete lowercase and additional punctuation and special characters, though neither are used in the game itself (and the port does not have any end credits, where the arcade version used the lowercase). note that the lowercase characters with descenders (g, j, p, q, y) are inexplicably moved down by 1px, and the l is one pixel taller than in the arcade version.

only the characters present in the game's tile set have been included.
