Have you thought about making this mod based on shooter mode? Maybe some ripper knives & homing bats???
Actually I have, currently checking all of the sprites needed and finding their palettes and locations to see if it's possible, In particular i want him to be able to use his umbrella sprites for shooter.
Awesome We have Nate for normal, Hugh for magician, Morris for fighter, Alu kid will do shooter style then :3
Games that do not give me desired characters playable, or that have single playable character are not worth my time.
