Yeah, I'm stumped on the ninja.  Any pointers would be helpful.  I'll take a couple more stabs at it in my free time too.

No, it will probably be an emulated 8-bit mode.  I just want to use 16 colors for the retro feel.

Just make the sprite a bit bigger?



Against anything but a pure black background, the ninja's outline is pretty hard to see. You might want to use some lighter colors.

Evil: If I'm not mistaken, this game would keep a constantly black background.


I'd try something like this, with a looser cowl and fewer outlines. The spaceman syndrome is really hard to shake, though.

Those animations are really smooth.

spaceman syndrome is likely coming from the purple outline, because we think he's being half lit by the moon and half lit by the purple planet nearby
do a test with just the one blue, or with two blues if he must have two differently colored outlines.
maybe making his outline's color dynamic based on the stage's elements?
