    Hard to tell with a video x_x (but then the implication is that a lot of the columns are 8px wide…)

    Mind, it'd have been mocked to hell back then anyway because it's not "real 3D like mode 7"...

    Back then being able to see any piece of hardware doing any form of 3D graphics was impressive, especially at decent speed — resolution be damned. Also I watched the video several tiles, the blocks...

    They're meant for use in actual arcade cabinets and priced accordingly :​P (you're supposed to be making money out of these to cover the cost, not keeping them at home like a console)

    Enemies don't add that much, so mostly #2 (especially walls). In that Contra 3 boss the sprites are only the road markings, yeah.
