Fun with PowerUp, the 8-bit & 16-bit Retro Camera App

I’m a sucker for cool camera apps, especially the kind that will pixel-fy everything you shoot so that it looks like it belongs in an 8-bit (or 16-bit) video game. That’s what this new iOS app called PowerUp does.

Featuring the latest in Blast Processing Technology, PowerUp filters your camera in real-time so that you can take photos using the same resolution and color palette as your favorite retro video game systems!

The app costs $1.99 and comes with four different camera filters that emulate classic retro video game systems–NES, Sega Genesis, Sega Master System, and Turbo Graphx 16. Here’s what they look like:

Turbo Graphx 16

I KNOW, I’m much more attractive as an unintelligible blur of pixels. Can you tell what I’m doing in this one?
