Get more frames of animation moving around a lot faster and it'll look
closer to MK.

Tigervision, of course.  Kevin Horton's got the goods on that... maybe
contact him on his gametech list if that's still around and he's not
listening here.

They look decent, and about as good as they're going to get without
squishing it into single-res or adding color gradient.  I'm no artist,
