Donkey Kong Junior is gone. Feels like a bit of a shame to remove a character that got shafted so bad after the Donkey Kong Country series took off. But this transformation in particular always bothered me because DK Junior is not a species but an individual character ( ...or at least I think he is. Game & Watch Gallery seems to think otherwise.... ) So it didn't really fit for a King to be transformed into him.
And... here's the Dinosaur restored to the throne.
There have been quite a few Dinosaurs in the Mario series to base this one on. Yoshi, Dino Rino/Torch, Plessie, Rex, Ect. I tried to take a little bit from each while still basing it off the original Dino, being yellow with large, pale dorsal plates.
Side note, this dude's pallet gave me hell. There seems to be a few clones of the DK junior color pallet, when I put this guy in the game, he changed colors on me. Twice.
I've already decided that they're staying
This has got to be one of the coolest hacks I've seen in the last like 15 years I've followed romhacking. The art is great and the intention is awesome.
Thanks for sharing your work with us! It looks amazing.
Gosh that's some high praise! Thank you, you're too kind.
We now have bug. Nothing really special about it. But the crown placement is bugging me ( heh ) and is another point in favor of me removing the crown sprite and placing them manually.
That just leaves the grassland and ice land kings, and the sky king... I can't tell if it's meant to be a pterodactyl or just a really big bird. Not sure which direction to take it.
