So i was looking at Lufia The Legend Returns Mapping Style in GBC. the Players view is a 9x9 square. MV has a more modern pixel art. As long as the environment is comprehensible, this mapping style is still good.
I realized recently since my game is still a turn based game, that something like the card game Yomi is a lot closer to what I should try to aim for combat wise. Should also help for those who don't really play fighting games to make things a bit easier to understand. ugh the struggles of trying to show love for my 2 favorite genres in 1 go lol.
