    TheomanZero Level 9: Spike Top

    I'm not sure if this suggestion would be at all practical, but I figured I'd post it anyway to get it out in the open and see what other people think.

    In Metroid, most of Samus' items flashed different colors, as demonstrated on her Exploding Rabbit Wiki entry:
    This also applies to Metroid II, Super Metroid, and ronny14's custom sprites that I'm trying to make into a skin.

    Since the Fire Flower has multiple animation frames, I thought that perhaps Samus' items could have them as well. My one concern is that there wouldn't be enough room on her Template for the extra frames.

    Her items already have palette-based flashing.
    Rey D likes this.

    Silly me, you're right. It is missing on the NES skin's Varia Suit power-up, though.
    I guess all I can say is that if the ronny14 skins get finished (I still need help on the climbing sprites), please remember to include palette-based flashing on that, too.
