no no it makes sense.
just keep his face in the upper right corner for nes
but that's optional.

The sprite can size from a single 16-pixel square to a full 64x64, giving you plenty of room to work with!
4096 tiles or 16 tiles? i'm confused, so ill go with the smaller amount, and do those tiles include their weapons?

Also, unlike most NES games, you'll be given a choice of FIVE colors to work with!
does this include the transparency?

Okay, maybe I should elaborate a bit.
You only have to make the pose sprite, like the AceMan entry.
The sprite can range from 16x16 to 64x64 in PIXELS.
So, comparing it to a SMWar tileset, for example, you can use from 1 to 16 tiles for your sprite.
This gives you a good range of size for most ideas.
So, for example, you could make a MiniMan using the 16, or even a DragonMan by taking up the full 16 with a 32x96.
There's tons of possibilities, so think outside the box!

Can you read minds?
Anyways, I might as well call DragonMan or a similar concept.

Yes, it still counts.  It's in a 16x16, after all.
And feel free to switch out your entry with another one if you change your mind.

...Um, Felix?  The point of the contest was to make your own Robot Master.
Magnet Man was already done in MegaMan 3.

I don't know anything about the Megaman series, gosh. Forget it then. I work hard on it though, for naught it seems.
