That's simply extremely good work!
I've had my share of working with sprites (I still do it from time to time) so I know what kind of pain in the ass this can be. :)
Keep up the good work!!
P.S. I see some say Diddy and Dixie are related... I think I remember the question in the game quiz saying "What's the name of Diddy's girlfriend?"... I could be wrong, though.
This one is up for one of the best sprites movies that used Donkey Kong sprites.
Keep up the good work.
I don't care for the song, however...
It is evident that you put a whole lot of work into this, the animation is very fluid. So you do deserve a high score for your work.
Thats even better!!! ^J^
