shackled (large) font


recreation of the large pixel font from data east's shackled (aka breywood, 1986).

this font is used primarily for the highscore screen. while each character uses four 8×8 tiles, in game the width of the characters is tweaked so that they're only 12 pixels wide (except for the three letters used for the highscore name itself, which use the full 16 pixel width), which is what this recreation uses.

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