Hard to salvage that Ptera without being familiar with the rest of the frames.

The only reason that amount of banding was viable is because of CRTs and the animation. Probably looked vaguely 3D in situ.

Banding does not make things look more 3D than proper rendering. And this stuff never looked 3D. I played this when I was liek 12, in an arcade, did not think it was 3D back then either.

CRTs help, but the main reason is quick workflow, contour gradient fill or something like that was most likely used
