    Captain Knight Level 6: Lakitu

    I knew someone would point out that game...

    I just want stuff from the original Battketoads, not that game. Although, we could use sprites if we get desperate.

    Reset Level 4: Buzzy Beetle

    Am I wrong in saying Rash is Zits with sunglasses and teeth showing?

    In the Battletoads Game, Rash is actually tan, like Pimples, so it's kinda confusing.

    Please Level 6: Lakitu

    Haha, it's an exact same sprite besides those two things.

    IMO, we should use any sprites we can from any available game as long as they're consistent with the original sprites.

    Camo Yoshi Level 4: Buzzy Beetle

    Actually, the funny thing is that the Sprites are the exact same in both games, IIRC.

    Wait... there's more than 1 8 bit battletoads game?

    Actually, Rash remains consistent. It's Zits & Pimple who switch colors. In the original game, Zits is the tan one. But in The Ultimate Team, Pimple is tan while Zits has almost the same color as Rash, Only his face/chest are a darker color.

    Like so...

    Yup. Battletoads & Double Dragon was released on both the NES and the Genesis. You could choose between the Zits, Rash, Pimple, Billy, and Jimmy. It was a fun game, although it was hard like the original Battletoads.

    I mean't Zits, yes. The names are so alike, I get confused.

    Rash is the main character
    Zits is the backup
    Pimples is the Kidnapped

    RB, I mean't Zits, not Rash, period.

    One of battletoads seems like a very fitting character. They jump, swim, climb, duck, and have unique controls, and it's a classic NES game. They even has a few side scrolling levels. Watch these two videos, which is a Tool-assisted speed run of the entire game.
    Part 1:
    Part 2:

    I think the music can be something like this:
    Character select - Title Theme
    Overworld - Ragnarok Canyon
    Underground - Karnath Lair
    Water - Arctic Cavern
    Night - Wookie Hole
    Star - Turbo Tunnel Part 2
    Cloud bonus - Rat Race
    Time running out - Boss Battle
    Entering Pipe sequence - Pause Music
    Castle: Turbo Tunnel Part 1 or The Revolution (the last level)
    Death - No music is played for death on Battletoads, but there is a sound for falling off a cliff that could work (tried several Google searches, couldn't find it)
    Game over - Game Over
    Stage Clear- Stage Clear
    Ending - Cut Scenes

    I found these mp3's here, minus the pause music.

    Captain Knight Level 6: Lakitu

    I know this may be an obvious pick, but I think that the Castle music should be the music that starts on 7:01 on the SECOND video. agrees?
     
  13. Please

    Please Level 6: Lakitu

    Yes, without a doubt.
     
  14. Captain Knight

    Captain Knight Level 6: Lakitu

    So it looks like we have music down, now how about sprites?
     
  15. Rockstar_Bob

    Rockstar_Bob Level 4: Buzzy Beetle

    Any available sprite we can get. So that means both the original & BT&DD. Especially BT&DD for the climbing sprites (Which would be useful for climbing the vine, no? :D) & for having 3 Battletoad palettes for changing when getting a mushroom/fire flower.

    Rash can be initial color, Zits can be mushroom color, & Pimple can be fire flower color.
     
  16. Captain Knight

    Captain Knight Level 6: Lakitu

    Hm, I guess that would be good since Rash is small, Zits is a different color, and Pimples is huge.

    But the 2 games that we're taking sprites from don't have the same looking characters.


    Original Battletoads sprites here

    Battletoads and Double Dragon here


    Small Problem (i think), How come there are no sprites for Zits? Pimples is an obvious no spriter (one stance), but what about Zits?

    Color swap. Should be easy enough.

    pokemondream Level 5: Spiny

    this is just an idea on capitain knight's 2nd link it shows the headshots of the toads and the headshots of the toads beat up so maybe in stead of gameover it could show the beat up headshots
     
  19. Please

    Please Level 6: Lakitu

    Would be interesting, but only if all characters get something like that.

    ERROR404 Level 4: Buzzy Beetle

    I think the power ups should go like this.
    1. Regular attack. Attack combos knock enemies away.
    2. Colour matches Zits from BT & DD, and the attacks do more damage, so 1HKO on Goombas, Koopa Troopas, etc.
    3. Colour matches Zits from Battletoads. Gets a pipe.
