I am trying to figure out what is a good resolution for my 2D platform game. My images are 16x16 and my frame is 640x480 but I will allow it to be fullscreen also. I need a compatible resolution for both options. Should it be 800x600 to fit all resolutions and not be too detailed? Does anyone have any answers to my problem?

Many good questions generate some degree of opinion based on expert experience, but answers to this question will tend to be almost entirely based on opinions, rather than facts, references, or specific expertise.If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.

Welcome to the site! Please see the faq for information about what sort of questions are on-topic here; I've put this question on hold because you're primarily asking for a list of suggestions, which doesn't let itself to a single objective answer. Please consider editing your question to be more specific about your requirements. – Josh Petrie Aug 6 '13 at 21:10
