BLiNX Stats Mock-up by catgirl140 BLiNX Stats Mock-up by catgirl140
Wow I'm really on a roll with the art recently. Even though I had art block a few days ago I'm going strong.

A stats panel modeled off the design in Blinx 2 because why not.. Artoon probably had high hopes for the RPG elements introduced in Blinx 2 but in the end it was pretty underwhelming and unimplemented. The AI of the NPCs is far from perfect (Keiko: ffs Stuart stop jumping at the wall!). Ranks was really cool though.

Instead of the hexagon graph I used bars because it's easier to create and they're more familiar to anyone who's played an RPG. I guessed the stats to be Offence, Defence, Tactics, Strength, Speed and Power and made the abbreviations easy to identify. (Not 100% certain they're right.) If I learn how to recreate similar textures to the game I may update it from solid colours and make the top bar more 3-D.

I used NPC Christopher's stats. Rank S, 4/151.

It's surprising how much good a few shadows can do to making something look like it has some nice depth to it.

I always figured that "TC" had something to do with time controls, although I don't recall if Tom Toms have that same stat (which would indicate it not being time controls).  I'm a little curious if the Japanese version of the game has something better than those ambiguous abbreviations, but knowing how much Japan loves putting English in its games, I'm not so sure.

Reading what I have of the dev interviews makes me sad that there was so much excitement for all the new mechanics being added.  It really didn't turn out like they had hoped, it seems.

The TC stat is also for the Tom Toms so it can't be Time Control. I like to hope it isn't actually Tactics because there is none of that in the AI. :V

There may be some Japanese Let's Plays on niconicodouga to check out. I'm guessing that the JAP version is essentially the same but text dialogue is Japanese. The stats would probably be the same abbreviations.

Yeah, I have the same suspicion.  I looked up a Japanese playthrough on YouTube not too long ago, and apart from finding a couple trailers (in which even the devs tried to make their character look as much like Blinx as possible), I came across a cutscene in which I discovered that the VAs are in fact the same despite the game being made in Japan.  I had the impression that the first game was more popular in Japan (certainly looks like something that would be), so the Western audience being put first seems a bit weird, but oh well, I guess.
