Maybe change the flowers at the top of the screen to backpacks? Looking forward to seeing how this turns out, it’s a great idea :)
I had the idea of changing them into the pencils from SFC, the carrots from Shun, or some other background object from the games.


I'm using yychr and I'm having a good time of it. the tricky bits are that the dig dug dude sprites are actually five colors, not four, as there's a hidden collision bounding area, with them getting a little tricky with some layering to get the red tools, but it's not really a big deal to ignore that and just make the sprites four color for a first pass. I'm having fun learning about all this stuff ^_^

I notice that there's also some "getting squished" sprites in there as well, for when a boulder falls on you. I was just gonna improvise but idk if you wanteed to make some "official" ones for our spriteset or not :3
yychr? Okay, I'll see what I can do.
...And whoa, I totally missed that sprite. Well, here's Kawase getting squished.


And the non-upscaled image. (Is there a better way to say it than "non-upscaled"? Unupscaled isn't a word, right? Non-upscaled doesn't roll off the tongue very nicely.)

I also put the other sprites behind a colored background - that way you can differentiate between "part of the sprite" black and "part of the background" black, in case that's needed. They'll look a little weird not being on black backgrounds, but hey, function over form. I'll do that for future sprites too.


Also, Combi your sprites are amazing! ^_^
You're amazing!

Not sure what else I'd change, really.

What graphics editor are you using? I'll give it a shot too and see if I can help.





Here's a fish, along with some revised Kawase sprites. Three colors plus black, same size as original, etc. I used the same colors as Pooka for simplicity's sake, but you could use a shade of orange or something instead. Here's a non-upscaled version, which I also added as an attachment.



I'm not sure what to do about the second enemy. You said an eel, but then what would I do for the fire? Maybe I could change it into electricity...
...I was also thinking I could make the enemy a shark, and the fire would become a swarm of this attack:





What do you think?

I don't have the original patch, but I can send you a patched ROM if you like. I'll do it through DMs - I don't want to post it publicly since that might be disrespectful to Canvas (and illegal).
That would be great if you could send it over! I’ll keep it to myself :) just wanted to try it out. Thanks :)

So I did in fact go find a gfx editor and get to work, but sprite hacking is more complicated than anticipated so this is gonna take a hot minute lol

Having fun tho!
