The sprites and backgrounds are ripped already. Just need to do some color reduction. The problem with character animation is that the top and bottom of character is split, so it needs to be combined. Also the fps needs to be reduced.
I would like to work on it in Backbone, but I'm weak in tile and sprite making.
