comment Alternative ways to construct maps
It depends on the game how large a pixel really is, you really don't want maps with huge resolutions. Another option that is normally used is to use a space partitioning algorithm in combination with general object transformations like @bobenko his answer.

storing it as a graphic file using pixeldata is still tile-based if you ask me, its just a different storing method for the same thing...
