I agree that Magic Pockets is not the best of the Bros games, but 1) Chaos Engine 2 sucks hard!!!! and 2) I still like it very much.
I'd like to remake Chaos Engine too, but it seems harder to do, and I don't have the graphics fully ripped yet. Cadaver would rule too.
The MP remake will be an unextended remake, not like Gods: I'm not planning to create new levels, etc...
It's also for me the opportunity to practise C++ with SDL. I've got everything: graphics, levels, and a big experience from the Gods remake.
I hope I can complete the remake fast enough, and easily... Let's see.
