To get into retro gaming these days, you don’t need a system or cartridges. Emulators and ROMs, which are both free and simple to use, will suffice.

A visual example of a paletted tile In the case of our 4bpp 8×8 tile bitmaps, we’ll treat the colour palette memory as 32 palettes of 16 colours. This way, we can use our four bits for each pixel to specify the colour index for this pixel. When using tile-based video modes, tiles are sectioned in VRAM into ‚tile blocks‘ or ‚charblocks‘.
