Last week, we wound back the clocks to the era of Pac-Man, when having enough quarters for the arcade was considered the ultimate after-school bliss and digital displays were in their nascent years.

Indeed, we wrapped up our 8-bit Graphic Design Contest, which challenged users to create images with the retro hyper-pixelated quality of 1980s arcade games. Users answered the bell with 1,499 awesome entries. Our community voted vigorously for a week to elect the 10 winning entries, so without further ado, we present to you the highest scoring submissions.

With 131 votes, the ultimate high score goes to Veena (@veena_ch) for this Nintendo-style summer holiday.

Our Jury’s Pick of the best entry outside of the Top 10 was this image by Greg Sparks (@gregsparks). This mix of an 8-bit bikini with a classical statue was as creative as it was hilarious.
