When we first found out about Sega and WayForward's Thor movie tie-in videogame, our expectations were mutated by a weird nostalgia for a simpler era of pixelated action. We love current-gen console tech as much as the next non-luddite, but 1UP's gallery of Nintendo DS sprites from WayForward speaks to our undying love of pixel art with the power of Mjolnir itself. Just look at Thor, Odin, Loki, Heimdal, Sif, Volstagg, Hogun, Fandrall and Balder -- they're nine worlds of wonderful! Check out a sampling after the cut.If you're feeling extra ambitious, you can celebrate the awe-inspiring set of Thor sprites by creating an animated .gif. It shouldn't be too difficult to top my ultra hasty example here:

No really, please do up an awesome one. If Thor say mine, he'd be all, "I say thee nay, mortal."
