New pixel shooter - please help with the game title

Hi everyone,

I'm finishing up a pixel shooter game. The working title is "Low res shooter". That's because I'm using 8x8 as a basic tile (see screenshots)

What do you think of this name? Low res shooter. Is it ok? Or is it stupid?
I'd appreciate any opinion

    It's not a good name for a game. Here are some suggestions:

    Block Fighter
    Block Buster
    Blocky Attack
    Square Dash

    Yeah... those are not any better. I don't know what I was thinking.

    8-Bit-Blow 'em away / Blastemup / etc
    8-Bit-Bert / Bob / etc? - What's the gist of the game, protagonist's name / background etc?

    8-Bit Blam-A-Thon

    Pixel Punx / Punks

    Chunk Punks / Chunky Punks

    Punks to Chunks

    Pixel Pistol Packers

    Resolution Revolution (aries?)

    Low-res low-lifes / low-balls

    Give me some background info, and I'll have a go at something... :smile:

    @Japster those are really cool names)
    I like Pixel punx, but there are two dudes playing video games who call themselves that way. Perhaps they don't mind if I use their name
    Some background. The game actually has a plot. The main protagonist's space ship is broken and he aims for the closes planet in a hope to find a new ship. The closest planet is Orpheus - once flourished planet that was destroyed during the great war and is now being restored by androids. When the player lands androids attack him for some reason so he needs to fight his way to the transport ship and find out why he is attacked (androids are not supposed to attack humans).

    I like the suggestion from @tatiang: Block Buster. Although I'd remove the space so that it becomes Blockbuster, because then it kind of suggests it is a blockbuster (i.e. highly popular and successful). Throw in a movie cover, or poster style splash screen too with some fictional actor names for that extra blockbuster feel
