A way to create props from sprites by having same sprite duplicated 2-3 times in 90-60 degree angles intersecting each other.
Alternate name: Detailed sprite props
The first video game about Shaped sprites was released on August 16, 2011.
NOTE : This tag needs(?) a better name. I have no idea what these are called for real since there seems to be no mention of them by any specific name (for example, in Source engine they're sprite-based detail props).
