I confess, I'm never going to finish this. I've tinkered with it for over a year and it's just slow going. The AI is meh, there are collision issues and velocity issues, blah blah blah. But I at least wanted to show you guys the concept.
One button jumps, one button attacks. Up and down do stances. There's combos in these button pushes. There's a divekick. You get it.
I wasn't trying to break new ground, I just wanted something that felt like the nintendo platformers I remember, like Trojan and Rygar and Ninja Gaiden.
If you want to improve on it, you go right ahead. If you want more sprites, I'd be happy to oblige. Enjoy.
Right now up+attack and down+attack do the same thing, but I had intended for one of those moves to toss a shuriken.
The reason I went with 8x8 sprites was to see if I could add fluidity to the animations with more tween frames. But I could consider using sspr and just making the whole thing enlarged.
