They're a lot like the Kruncha enemies from Donkey Kong Country 2 as seen around 1:07 onward in this video:



I'm kinda beating myself up about it right now because I legit forgot they existed until now. Had I remembered them when making the sprites I probably would've gone with a different color for the calmer state.

Some people just cannot avoid the ads on MediaFire, even with both common sense and popup blockers. It's always a good idea to provide an alternate download link with an ad-free file host such as Dropbox or Google Drive.

Also play Bug Fables, the devs have confirmed that they got their royalties from Dangen and the game is really freaking good.

I thought their behavior seemed familiar! Do you think heavy characters like Toad or Link's sword will defeat the Tantrunts, or are they fully invulnerable? I'm guessing the latter, since the eggs don't affect Ham.

Definitely the latter. Starman invincibility is probably going to be the only way to kill them besides lava.

I think miniboss is the best term. I know Rocky said it's not a boss, but that's just too powerful for an enemy. Besides, the enemy takes up quite a demanding setup for it. Besides, I can't really see a scenario where they could be used apart from a miniboss.

I can think of a few ways this can be used in a normal level. Some specificly for secrets.

DKC2's Krunchas aren't minibosses. They're merely tough enemies. Are Spike Tops minibosses because we can't defeat them? I personally don't think so.

As mentioned before they're just tough enemies. Would be tough for a boss as well since you can't kill them

Peharps it can be used for puzzles. Like clearing a way for it to charge at a wall and make something drop.

I like these things. I can imagine using them for making them bash into buttons that Mario couldn't do on his own. Maybe you can even abuse it's aggressive nature to plow through hordes of enemies.
